That person whom I loved so much, I lost him. It makes my burning heart weeps.” –Im Hee Sook, I Really Didn’t Know [translated lyrics]

The hottest idol group at this time, EXO, made a grand debut on the music program “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend” on its episode 114. Mereka tampil dalam edisi “Diva Special” yang menampilkan Jang Mi Hwa dan Im Hee Sook sebagai legend. Episode tersebut ditayangkan pada tanggal 17 Agustus 2013 di stasiun televisi KBS, serta pada tanggal 7 September 2013 di channel KBS World. Dalam episode 114 itu, EXO yang diwakilkan oleh dua vokalis utamanya, Baekhyun dan Chen, tampil membawakan salah satu lagu hits Im Hee Sook yang bertajuk “I Really Didn’t Know”. Overcoming the limits of idols, they showed a breath-taking performance.
“I Really Didn’t Know” is a song that expresses the epitome of a hopeless love. Tentang seseorang yang ditinggalkan. Tentang seseorang yang merindu. Tentang seseorang yang tak dapat melupakan. It’s not that we never realize what we had until it’s gone, but the thing is that we never know that we would lost what we had back then. It’s not that we never realize to be grateful of what we had before it’s too late, but the thing is that we never know that it would leave us behind. Dan ketika segalanya telah berlalu pergi, tinggallah kita sendiri menanti dalam kesakitan. Terus berharap bahwa suatu saat nanti cinta itu akan datang kembali. “Somebody out there is whistling for me. Will he find me? Will he come to me? My heart keeps waiting in vain.

Originally sang by Kim Sang Hee in 1967, but “I Really Didn’t Know” went mostly unnoticed. It became a hit when revived by Im Hee Sook in 1969, and many singers did a cover of it since then. Baekhyun and Chen showed a great passion until the end. They’ve got the look and the voice, and moreover, their harmony went well with the melancholic ballad melody of “I Really Didn’t Know”. Even though they’re still so young, their emotion while singing this song was no joke. They’re shifting paradigm in performances and successfully made their grand debut on “Immortal Songs 2”.

That person whom I trusted so much, he went away. I didn’t know it back then, I really didn’t know.” –Im Hee Sook, I Really Didn’t Know [translated lyrics]



“Geutorok saranghadeon geu saram ireobeorigo
(That person whom I loved so much, I lost him)
Taoreuneun nae maeumman heuneukkyeo une
(It makes my burning heart weeps)

Geutorok miteo watdeon geu saram doraseol juriya
(That person whom I trusted so much, he went away)
Yejeoneneun mollaseotne jinjeong nan mollatne
(I didn’t know it back then, I really didn’t know)

Nuguinga buleo juneun hwiparam solri
(Somebody out there is whistling for me)
Haengyeona chadja julkka geu nimi ani olkka
(Will he find me? Will he come to me?)
Gidarineun maeum heomuhaela
(My heart keeps waiting in vain)”
