It’s been a while but I remember it so clearly that falling in love is the most exciting feeling in this world. It can come anytime and anywhere, even at the most unpredictable time and place. And you just know it when it comes; the feeling, the excitement, the fluttering heart. It’s even more fascinating during the first time; first love, they say, though I prefer say that’s the first crush. Well, a crush is the thing that leads us to love, indeed; the attraction, the interest. It’s been so long yet I still remember it so clearly that love has this kind of ability that could make us behaving like a child; the embarrassment. And when you meet that person, you turn into someone you don’t used to be. Hiding your feeling, speaking harshly, running away; while inside you’re burning and blushing, being happy just because seeing that person. Never try hard to hide your feeling from that person, because love needs to be expressed; It’s Okay, This Is Love.

I feel like that kind of person will like me. I feel like that kind of person will love me, exactly that person.” –Choi Byeong Geol & Jung So Nyeo, That Person ( 사람)

A lovely and tender duet song was performed on the stage of entertainment music program, “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend”. It was on the 143rd episode, during the “Actor Special: Happy Together” special episode, when the sweet song titled “That Person ( 사람)” was performed by Lee Se Jun of folk duo Yurisangja, in a collaboration with actress Hong Eun Hee. The episode was broadcasted by KBS television station on March 8th 2014, and later was broadcasted by KBS World channel on March 29th 2014. Actor Yoo Joon Sang, who’s happened to be Hong’s husband, made a special surprise appearance in the middle of his wife and Lee’s performance, giving out the lovelier atmosphere for the song.

“That Person ( 사람)” is a song about two people who meet for the first time, and since then, they feel like there’s something between them. “For some reasons why, I feel terribly sorry to let that person go. For some reasons why, I feel like I’ll see that person again somewhere.” As it’s a duet song, the feeling they have for each other isn’t unrequited, fortunately. Indeed, it takes two to tango; it needs a mutual feeling for love to become real. “For some reasons why, I keep waiting for that person. For some reasons why, I keep longing to see that person everytime.” And when the feeling is there, so what are you waiting for? And when that person is the one you really want and need, and when that person is feeling the same way, so what are you waiting for?

The popular duet song was originally performed by Choi Byeong Geol and Jung So Nyeo back in 1978. Jung wrote the lyrics based on her own first love. As she was feeling shy, she told people that Choi was the one who wrote the lyrics. “That Person ( 사람)” became a hit again in 2014 when actress Lee Yoon Ji and actor Han Joo Wan sang it on the KBS’ drama series, “Wang’s Family”. Actually, the lyrics and melody of the song are quite simple and ear-catchy, yet fascinatingly it has the power to stay inside my head for a long time. It’s simply beautiful and sweetly captivating. Though Hong Eun Hee tried her best with her vocal ability as an actress, she wasn’t disappointing. And I have to give my thumbs up for her husband; they’re such a lovely couple!

I feel like I will like that kind of person. I feel like I will fall in love with that kind of person, exactly that person.” –Choi Byeong Geol & Jung So Nyeo, That Person ( 사람)
