A Good Person

You’re a good person, though I’m endlessly lacking, you’re the person that I love and I’ll protect. I don’t care what people say about you, in my heart, you’re my only love.” –Jo Eun, No One is Better Than You/Good Person (OST. The Innocent Man) [translated lyrics]


Penyanyi solo pria, Jo Eun, menyumbangkan suara emasnya untuk mengisi jajaran soundtrack serial drama Korea Selatan, “The Innocent Man”, atau yang terkenal juga dengan judul “Nice Guy”. Lagu berjudul “No One is Better Than You”, atau yang dikenal juga dengan judul “Good Person”, ini dirilis dalam single “The Innocent Man OST Part 3” pada tanggal 17 Oktober 2012. Menyusul kemudian pada tanggal 24 Oktober 2012, lagu ini dirilis sebagai bagian dari album “The Innocent Man OST”, bersama dengan lagu soundtrack lainnya dari serial ini.
“No One is Better Than You”/”Good Person” portraits a desperate feeling of someone who thinks that they don’t deserve love. Because of their dark past, they feel that they aren’t good enough to be with someone they love. Most of all, the one they love is a good person. Far too good to them. So, they choose to love and protect the one they love from a far. Eventhough people think that that person is a bad person, they don’t care at all. It doesn’t matter what people say about that person, for them, no one is better than that person. Eventhough all the people in the world against that person, they will be the one who always stands behind that person.


Dalam serial “The Innocent Man”, lagu ini menggambarkan perasaan kedua tokoh utamanya, Kang Ma Ru (diperankan oleh Song Joong Ki) dan Seo Eun Gi (diperankan oleh Moon Chae Won), yang saling mencintai, terlepas dari masa lalu dan lingkungan mereka yang menentang. Kesuksesan serial drama ini turut didukung dengan lagu-lagu soundtrack­-nya, begitu pula dengan popularitas serial drama ini yang turut menyokong lagu-lagu soundtrack-nya. Indeed, lagu ballad ini melebur dengan apik dalam serial melodrama sebagai pendongkrak emosi penonton.

My yearning grows and spreads through my heart. I try to hold it in but the words keep spilling out. These words “I love you” are so hard to hide. Do you still can’t come to me yet?” –Jo Eun, No One is Better Than You/Good Person (OST. The Innocent Man) [translated lyrics]
