[220114] Akdong Seoul radio w/ DJ #KUN 🐻 “New KPOP” Chinese to English Translations 🎙translation thread🎙 #KUNONAIR #AkdongSeoul #KunD #DJKun #钱锟 #쿤
~opening~
🐻: I heard a phrase recently, “做人如水做事如山” and I thought there was some truth to that - as humans we should be fluid and tolerant. When doing things we need to be as strong and stable as mountains. Hope we can all work hard to become people like this!
🐻: strong/stable person usually give people a reliable/dependable feeling. This is also quite advantageous in interviews, jobs, and exams. I hope we can all become people like this!
~Today’s TMI~
First TMI was in Korean, and so was most of Kun’s response, but at the end he said he was embarrassed LOL
Second TMI OP said the food they bought expired and they advised ppl to eat the food they buy quickly and don’t put it somewhere u couldn’t see bc you’ll forget
🐻: Ah like me…I’ll often go to the grocery store to buy a bunch of snacks…but then I don’t eat them and they just pile up. When I want to eat them I realize they’ve expired 🥲 this is a bad habit don’t be like me~ Eat the things you buy quickly and don’t get too much at once!

🐻: LaiLai did your major have to do with movies?
🎵: ah not really - I was a language major! But with a Korean language specialty, so we would learn about all sorts of Korean culture including plays, movies, etc. For ppl in majors like Zhuama’s, they’d learn more about how +
+ a movie is filmed and such, but we’ll focus more on the cultural aspects and information and what it means in the film
🐻: have you considered being a screenwriter?
🎵: I have friends who are! I won’t say who..but they’ve worked with well known actors :D
LaiLai said he once had a small dream to become someone who works on set and is like the liaison between the actors and others on set (I think?? I’m paraphrasing lol)
🎵: they’re soooo cool
🐻: you can do it! Professor LaiLai can do it~ 😊
[1st song: “Dessert” by Kim Yohan]
LL talked about how this song is from Kim Yohan’s first mini album and has disco vibes and is very rhythmic. LaiLai explained how through this album “Illusion” he wanted to portray the meaning of how sometimes the line between reality and +
+ illusions in our lives become blurred and indistinguishable. They’re both connected and sometimes we forget what is real and what is not and we feel like we’re in a dream. LL said the MV and whole concept is really great!
LaiLai talked about how Kim Yohan had been a part of a group for a long time, so while preparing for this album he was worried about standing onstage alone and had thoughts of like “ah…would it have been better if I had members singing with me” but his members were all super +
+ supportive and told him that he could accomplish a lot on his own. Throughout the making of this album, Yohan was also filming a tv series at the same time, so he worked really hard to complete and prepare this album~

[2nd song - “So life goes on” by Heo Hoy Kyung]
🐻: ahh this seems like a really healing song!
🎵: that’s right - it gives you a refreshing and light feeling~
LaiLai talked about how the song portrays how life isn’t always as smooth as we’d like it to be, but we need to accept +
+ life as it is. He also said how life is like the weather - even with a forecast we can’t always predict what will happen next
🐻: and it might not always be accurate either haha
LL also talked about how the MV gives off a hopeful feeling~

[3rd song - “Blessed-Cursed” by ENHYPHEN]
LL explained how their songs often have “-” in them bc of their group name and how through this album “Dimension: Answer” they reject the rigid/fixed answers the world gives them. LL talked about how this song sounds very strong and has +
+ rock vibes.
🎵: I’ve actually met them (Enhyphen) before and back then my impression were a group of very energetic, cheerful group of kids
🐻: “kids”? 😂 that makes u sound so old
🎵: *joking* noooo I’m only 18 😂
🎵: but this time i was like wowww they’ve grown up
🎵: it showed their versatility and how they could portray a different side of them; a different vibe/concept
LaiLai talked about how this song “Blessed-Cursed” refers to how sometimes you don’t know if things in life are a blessing or a curse - sometimes it seems like a good +
+ thing at first, but then leads you to unfortunate events, but other times things that seem like curses in the beginning, actually bring you great opportunities and results you’d never expect. LL also talked about how in this album, the “answer” they’re looking for is +
“How should I live? Who am I?” And while searching for this answer, they initially thought “i have to live by the rules of this world” but are realizing that the rules of this world might not be right fundamentally so they don’t want to be restricted by these guidelines
In the end, the deeper meaning is they want to encourage listeners that there are many different opportunities/paths and to find your own answer from within
🐻: so how did u meet them?
🎵: their fansign haha (t/n: LaiLai is a translator at fansigns sometimes so might be that)
🐻: they have a member - yang jungwon, jungwonnie~ I know him! I met him when he was very little. He was so cute when he was little haha
🎵: he’s cute now too haha
🐻: he was so cute and hardworking when he was little~ Now when I see him in their MVs I’m like WOW amazing~ +
+ 🐻: he had such a cute image back then and now he’s so-
🎵: Kun you can’t say things like this LMAOO
🐻: ok but really I think he’s become more and more handsome 😆 I’m happy for him
(T/N: UM HELLOO Kun and LaiLai living their Jungwon fanboy moment lmao love to see it 🤩)

[6th song - “Lost On Me” by Eric Nam]
LaiLai talked about how Eric put all kinds of stories/experiences he’s had since debut into this song and how this song has a vacationing/wandering vibe with a freeing feeling. You’ll feel like swaying to the beat once you hear the song!
LaiLai talked about Eric’s background to becoming a singer and how the album has a feeling of “coming home” not only because Eric came back to the states, but also when he was in Korea it was a different sense of “coming home”
🐻: Eric Nam is a very well-rounded artist!
🎵: that’s right! He participated in a competition show in 2011 and after debuting, everyone felt how he’s not only handsome, but also good at singing, self-composing music - even his grades since childhood were good. He also has a +
+ good character/personality and people around Eric all say that he’s a very capable person, so he’s a very well rounded person~
🐻: ah our time is about up~ you worked hard today, LaiLai! Our program is coming to an end - see you tomorrow, bye bye!

~broadcast end~
