Thing about love is, every moment of it will fill every side of our deepest memories. Thing about love is, there will always be the first and the last. Thing about love is, it’s never getting old, that we will always be able to reminisce for it no matter how many time has passed. Thing about love is, it doesn’t take long to fall into it, yet it takes forever to fall out of it. Thing about love is, there is no reason for having it, yet there are so many reasons for never losing it. Thing about love is, we will meet at least one person in a lifetime, a person that will teach us about what love is and how to love and be loved. Thing about love is, though maybe we’ll meet more than one soulmate in a lifetime, we know we will never love in the exact same way twice. Thing about love is, we will meet that one person in a lifetime, a person that we know we will spend the rest of the life with; a person whom whenever we look at, we understand that it’s love; it’s more than meets the eye. Thing about love is, it’s the greatest mystery in a human’s life.

Thing about love is, though you can’t say the words, though you can only watch from a far, as long as you can give your everything, as long as you can love, I may be sad but I’m glad.” –Lee Seung Chul, No One Else (그런 사람 없습니다)

Today’s song for Moments Of Our Lives part 2 is a Korean hit performed by Korean legendary singer, Lee Seung Chul. The song is titled “No One Else (그런 사람 없습니다)”, or also known as “There is None Like You” for the title’s English translation. It was released on May 6th 2009 as the lead song from Lee’s 10th album titled “Mutopia”. This song was also served as the theme song for 2009 drama film “More than Blue (슬픔보다 슬픈 이야기)”, starring Kwon Sang Woo, Lee Bo Young, and Lee Bum Soo. It ranked high in many music charts at that time. “No One Else (그런 사람 없습니다)” has a soft and calming tune that showcasing Lee’s amazing and tender voice. In the same year of its release, this song was served as background music to the late Roh Moo Hyun’s (the 9th President of South Korea) memorial.

Thing about love is, every moment of it will fill every part of our deepest memories; too precious to forget, especially when we’ve met the one. The lyrics of “No One Else (그런 사람 없습니다)” speak about an everlasting love. “Even though I’m born for a thousand times all over again, there won’t be anyone else like her. She gives warmness into my sorrowful life, she’s the person I’m so thankful for. For the sake of someone like her, it doesn’t matter for me how much my heart aches.” Thing about love is, though we perhaps can’t give everything for it, we can effort anything. In the name of love, there’s nothing we can’t fight for, nothing we won’t give up for. “That was the first time my heart fluttered, I will never experience that kind of love again. In the memories that I’ve hidden for a long time, I only have one love. For the sake of someone like her, no matter how hard it is, I can always hold back my tears.
Thing about love is, the deepest is the greatest. When we know we’ve met the one, no matter how people come and go, no matter how many other people we’ve crossed path with, we know we won’t ever meet someone like that again. When we realize we’ve fallen for the one once, we just understand we will never be in love in the exact same way twice. “Thing about love is, though you can’t say the words, though you can only watch from a far, as long as you can give your everything, as long as you can love, I may be sad but I’m glad.” There’s always someone for somebody; someone’s so precious like no other. Someone who taught about love, that thing about love is, it’s all about giving without demanding. Though it brings sadness sometimes, it eventually brings happiness. “There is nothing I desire more, I’ll be happy if you just smile, because love is all about giving, because it’s just giving it all, I may be sad but I’m glad.
