Some people say that love is hard to be understood. Well, I might be one of the some. Perhaps it’s not the love itself that is hard to be understood. Perhaps it’s the person who can’t seem to get used to it. For some people, love, or real love, seems like an abstract that only happens in fiction. But then, fact and fiction are like chicken and egg; it’s hard to see which one comes first. Love, or real love, is somewhere out there. If we don’t have one now, then we just haven’t found it yet. Just believe that it’s somewhere out there, waiting to be found. And also believe, when it’s meant to be, love will always find its way; even in a way that will be very surprising for us. Never try too hard to understand and don’t deny when it whether it slowly or suddenly appears, because indeed love is hard to be understood and its appearance could surprise us in every possible way; It’s Okay, This Is Love.

Why do you appear in my eyes? Why do you always keep appearing? If I lie down and close my eyes, why does your face keep coming in my mind? It doesn’t seem like a big deal then, to calm down my heart. You aren’t just a passing feeling, that much is clear, it’s love. It must be love.” –Kim Bum Soo, Appear (나타나) [OST. Secret Garden]

Talking about the love that comes suddenly to people who used to be alone, I’m reminded of a song titled “Appear (나타나)”. It served as a soundtrack for SBS’ hit drama series, “Secret Garden” (2010), which starred prominent Korean actor and actress, Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won. The pop dynamic song was performed by soloist male singer, Kim Bum Soo, and was released as “Secret Garden OST Part 2” single album on November 18th 2010.

“Appear (나타나)” is a song that tells about a man who finally finds love. Before that, love for him is just an absurd concept that he always finds it hard to accept. But meeting her changes everything. He used to be alone, and he was never bothered by that fact. But after her, he suddenly feels empty, like there’s something missing inside him; a hole that’s only could be filled by her. “I’ve never felt that I’m incomplete, and by the end of the day I never have any regret. But something is weird and there is a strange feeling, my heart seems to have a gap. Strangely, only you can fill up this gap.” He used to live an ordinary life without having any special purpose. But after her, he suddenly feels the urge to have someone for the rest of his life; that’s her. “Although I don’t know much, it’s hard to believe it’s you. Just before you leave, I don’t know why I feel so strange.” He falls in easily yet deeply. Everything is so new for him that it feels strange and weird. Indeed, love appears suddenly. And he can’t just get her off of his head. It’s definitely not just a temporary feeling. And that way he learns, that way she has taught him love. “Perhaps you came to my side because of this.”

Dominated with the band sound throughout the song, “Appear (나타나)” served as the main theme song for “Secret Garden”. On December 27th 2010, the female vocal version of this song was performed by Yoari and was released as “Secret Garden OST Part 4” single album. Both the original version with male vocal and the female vocal version were later included in “Secret Garden OST Special” album, which was released on January 21st 2011. The cheerful melody and the spiritful lyrics make this song one of memorable soundtracks ever.

Understanding that life is only lived to be old, what you’ve done to this heart is still left. Like the easy thing I've seen in this world, I also got cluttered in love.” –Kim Bum Soo, Appear (나타나) [OST. Secret Garden]
