Heartache

Turn your head, look at me, give me a chance and stay by my side. But as always, you look at somewhere else, at far distance place. Watching you who love another person, that’s how I live my life. Do you know that my love is for you?” –Lee Hyun, My Heartache (OST. A Gentleman’s Dignity) [translated lyrics]


Salah satu member dari grup vokal 8eight, Lee Hyun, menyumbangkan suara emasnya untuk menyanyikan sebuah lagu soundtrack dari serial drama populer “A Gentleman’s Dignity”. Lagu berjudul “My Heartache” ini dirilis sebagai single “A Gentleman’s Dignity OST Part 3 pada tanggal 17 Juni 2012. Lagu ini kemudian menjadi bagian dari album “A Gentleman’s Dignity: Original Soundtrack Album Part 1”, yang diluncurkan pada tanggal 25 Juni 2012. Lagu ini merupakan gambaran perasaan tokoh utama Kim Do Jin (diperankan oleh Jang Dong Gun) kepada Seo Yi Soo (diperankan oleh Kim Ha Neul).
This song portraits the feeling of someone who’s having a one-sided love. The feeling of watching someone that we love keeps staring at another person. The feeling of seeing someone that we love cries because of another person. The feeling of having the love which brings a heartache. Sadly, we became used to feel the pain until the point that we don’t even realize that it hurts anymore. Having this painful one-sided love has become our habit. Even if we cry and barely speak, even if we become a fool, we have to keep smiling in front of someone that we love. Even though we miss that person, wanting so much to hold onto, to hug tightly, we couldn’t say those words of love. The way we love that person has become the way that person loves another person. Unconsciously, we learn the way of one-sided love from that person. Secretly loving that person, watching from a distance, hoping that that person would turn their back and look at us. Pretending not to notice our own feeling, trying hard to ignore that person and to believe that our feeling isn’t real. Meanwhile, we live our life in despair, wishing that that person would someday realize and come to us, that someday that person would lean on us during their hard times.

Just once, could you lean on me in your hard times? Don’t cry, don’t cry, I wish something beautiful for your life as I look at you. Don’t you know this is my wish?” –Lee Hyun, My Heartache (OST. A Gentleman’s Dignity) [translated lyrics]
