Hunting for vocabulary with BTS - BTS ARMY Guide
This is our first #WordWednesday ever! I hope you’ll enjoy it, but if for some reason you don’t know what I’m talking about then check this link right here. Now, let’s actually get to the topic. I’ve been struggling with vocabulary for some time now and I believe I found a solution for all of us ARMYs!! Instead of opening a dictionary at a random page and studying a few words that probably mean nothing to you, working on lyrics is much more fun. Throughout this year of studying Korean, I’ve seen a lot of advice saying that studying with K-pop lyrics is a bad idea. Yes. If you thought you would learn complete grammar or that reading the lyrics will lead you to fluency, then yes, for you this is a bad idea. BUT, if you are ready to enjoy BTS’ songs and understand the main vocabulary of every song, buckle up because we are going for a ride! For this week, I’ve decided to choose Paradise from their full album Love Yourself: Tear. It’s one of my absolute favorites and I had fun breaking it down. DISCLAIMER: Translation of the song is done by Wisha (@doyoubangtan on Twitter). Wisha’s website PARADISE – Korean lyrics + translation 마라톤 마라톤 삶은 길어 천천히 해 42.195 그 끝엔 꿈의 낙원이 가득해 하지만 진짜 세상은 약속과는 달라 우린 달려야 해 밟아야 해 신호탄을 쏘면 너, 목적지도 없어 아무 풍경도 없어 숨이 턱까지 넘칠 때 You need to you need to 멈춰서도 괜찮아 아무 이유도 모르는 채 달릴 필요 없어 꿈이 없어도 괜찮아 잠시 행복을 느낄 네 순간들이 있다면 멈춰서도 괜찮아 이젠 목적도 모르는 채 달리지 않아 꿈이 없어도 괜찮아 네가 내뱉는 모든 호흡은 이미 낙원에 우린 꿈을 남한테서 꿔 (빚처럼) 위대해져야 한다 배워 (빛처럼) 너의 dream. 사실은 짐 미래만이 꿈이라면 내가 어젯밤 침대서 꾼 건 뭐? 꿈의 이름이 달라도 괜찮아 다음달에 노트북 사는 거 아니면 그냥 먹고 자는 거 암것도 안 하는데 돈이 많은 거 꿈이 뭐 거창한 거라고 그냥 아무나 되라고 We deserve a life 뭐가 크건 작건 그냥 너는 너잖어 하지만 진짜 세상은 약속과는 달라 우린 달려야 해 밟아야 해 신호탄을 쏘면 너, 목적지도 없어 아무 풍경도 없어 숨이 턱까지 넘칠 때 You need to you need to 멈춰서도 괜찮아 아무 이유도 모르는 채 달릴 필요 없어 꿈이 없어도 괜찮아 잠시 행복을 느낄 네 순간들이 있다면 멈춰서도 괜찮아 이젠 목적도 모르는 채 달리지 않아 꿈이 없어도 괜찮아 네가 내뱉는 모든 호흡은 이미 낙원에 I don’t have a dream 꿈을 꾸는 게 때론 무섭네 그냥 이렇게 살아가는 게 살아남는 게 이게 나에겐 작은 꿈인데 꿈을 꾸는 게 꿈을 쥐는 게 숨을 쉬는 게 때론 버겁네 누군 이렇게 누군 저렇게 산다면서 세상은 내게 욕을 퍼붓네 Yeah 세상은 욕할 자격이 없네 꿈을 꾸는 법이 무엇인지 가르쳐 준 적도 없기에 꾸며 낸 꿈이기에 눈물의 잠꼬대 악몽에서 깨워내 널 위해 이젠 매일 웃어보자고 저 낙원에서 멈춰서도 괜찮아 이젠 목적도 모르는 채 달리지 않아 꿈이 없어도 괜찮아 네가 내뱉는 모든 호흡은 이미 낙원에 Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend Now 어리석은 경주를 끝내 Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend 네가 내뱉는 모든 호흡은 이미 낙원에 Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend 다 꾸는 꿈 따윈 없어도 돼 Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend 너를 이루는 모든 언어는 이미 낙원에 Marathon, Marathon Life is long, travel slowly 42.195 In the end, it’s full of the paradises of [your] dreams However, the real world is different from what is promised We have to race, have to accelerate, if we signal our hazard lights You, don’t even have a destination Don’t even have scenery – When you can’t breathe any longer, you need to, you need to It’s okay to pause There’s no need to run without having reason It’s okay to not have a dream If there are brief moments in which you can feel happiness, it’s okay to pause Now I don’t race without knowing the destination It’s okay to not have a dream, for every breath you exhale is already paradise We dream through other people (as if in debt) We learn that we have to become great (as if a light) Your dream, in fact a burden If dreams can only be for the future, what’s the dream I dreamt last night in bed?
