There’s nothing perfect in this world. How about love? Well, I guess there’s no such a perfect love either. But I believe, somehow, that love has the power to bring together two imperfect people becoming a perfect couple. Two is better than one, right? Moreover, two is better than three. It’s not easy to find someone who is ‘click’ with us, yet there’s a saying that people with the same frequency will find one another. Indeed, love isn’t a one-way road, because it takes two to tango. So, no matter how imperfect you are, you will meet your match. They’re imperfect too, but they love you for just the way you are, and so are you; complete each other. Never let your inferiority makes you feel like you don’t deserve to fall in love, because love is about two imperfect people being perfect together; It’s Okay, This Is Love.

Speaking up those honest thoughts, that’s hard, I’m not good at that. I pretend to be happy with a smile, do you know? Am I the only one?” –Jung Joon Young & Younha, Just The Way You Are (달리 함께)

Let’s brighten up our second day of February with a sweet collaboration between both singer-musician, Jung Joon Young and Younha. They released a duet song titled “Just The Way You Are (달리 함께)” as a single on May 29th 2014. The heartwarming track was on number three on my 7 Most Beautiful K-Pop Collaboration of2014 list.

“Just The Way You Are (달리 함께)” is a couple song that depicts a story about a boy and a girl, who find similarities between them; imperfection. Yet fascinatingly, they feel like they’re perfect together. “Only thinking about the happy things, it’s hard, I’m not good at that. It’s only me; am I different from everyone else? Is something wrong with me?” We’ve all been hurt before, been in an awful pain that has made us the way we are now; an incomplete and broken soul. Somehow without even realizing it, that has turned us into a more introvert person than we used to be. And when we meet someone new, we become more aware and full of hesitation. “Venting out when things get hard, that’s hard, I’m not good at that. I’m afraid you’ll turn away if you see my weakness, that you’ll get disappointed. Hiding the pain and always trying to smile, it’s hard, I’m not good at that. I don’t know if I might be acting cold because I’m scared.” Who guess that this someone new is the same as us? Well, people with the same frequency will find each other, indeed. Two scarred and hurt people, yet they could be beautiful and happy together. “Little by little, slowly, as your and my footsteps walk on, from far away to closer up, as we look at each other.” It’s okay to be just a little bit different from others, it’s okay to be just a less perfect than others. So just take your time, feel the moment, take a little walk while holding hands, and you will see it yourself; that we are beautiful just the way we are. “The less perfect version of me is alright. A little different from others, you’re alright too. We’re looking at each other with our differences, when we’re together, it’s beautiful. Even if we lack a little bit, it’s alright. Even if we’re something strange, it’s alright. We’re showing each other things that can’t be understand. We’re beautiful just the way we are.”

Mnet channel premiered the music video for “Just The Way You Are (달리 함께)” on May 28th 2014. The pop-rock song with medium tempo showcases a dynamic yet heartwarming harmony between Jung Joon Young and Younha, who had been collaborated before when Jung was a finalist of Superstar K4. The more you hear it, it’s a kind of song that would captivate you even more.

Even if you get loose even more, it’s alright. Even if you get even more nervous, it’s alright. It’s so beautiful that you and I are together, walk with me like this.” –Jung Joon Young & Younha, Just The Way You Are (달리 함께)
