Wish It Was You

I wish it was you, the person who will laugh with me. I wish it was you, the person who will walk with me. I wish it was you, the one person who will passionately hug me on our way back home in the late evening. I’m afraid it will all disappear if I tell you. So I’ve hidden these words without anyone knowing.” –Lee Jung, I Wish It Was You (OST. Flower Boy Next Door) [translated lyrics]


Solois pria asal Korea Selatan, Lee Jung, merilis sebuah lagu untuk soundtrack serial drama “Flower Boy Next Door”. Lagu berjudul “I Wish It Was You” ini diluncurkan sebagai single “Flower Boy Next Door OST Part 3” pada tanggal 29 Januari 2013. Sehari sebelumnya, pada tanggal 28 Januari 2013, official music video dari lagu ini resmi ditayangkan secara perdana. Dalam video klip ini terdapat cuplikan-cuplikan dari serial drama “Flower Boy Next Door”, yang menyorot hubungan cinta segitiga antara tokoh Go Deok Mi (diperankan oleh Park Shin Hye), Enrique Geum (diperankan oleh Yoon Si Yoon), dan Oh Jin Rak (Kim Ji Hoon).
This song tells about unrequited love, which is experienced by the characters in this drama series. The song’s lyrics portraits the feeling of someone who could only wish and dream about the one they love, but in reality they have to let that person go for the sake of that person. “I really wish it was you, do you know how I feel? Because my love is like breathing, I can’t hide it. I can’t let go of you, who is turning away right now. It hurts but for you, I need to say goodbye now.” When we fall in love with someone, from deep of our heart, we sincerely think that everything would be nice if we share it with that person. Even the simplest thing like walking home together under the twilight, that thing would be nice if we could do that with that person. But somehow, as our feeling goes deeper, we feel afraid that our wish would draw that person away from us, and that’s why we rather choose to hide our feeling. Instead of telling them how we exactly feel, we choose to back away, because we’re too afraid to hear the answer. There are too many things that we want to say, but in the end, nothing could come out from our lips. Even though we can’t hide it, even though we can’t let go, even though it hurts, we have to say goodbye.

There is just so much to say, but I can’t say it. And I miss you, so I call your name again. I wish it was me, the person who is next to you right now. I can’t let go of you, who is turning away right now. It hurts, but for you, I need to say goodbye now.” –Lee Jung, I Wish It Was You (OST. Flower Boy Next Door) [translated lyrics]
