G-Dragon-Untitled, 2014

I love this song! It’s written and produced by G-Dragon, the leader of K-pop supergroup Big Bang.

When I first heard this song, I was a little surprised by the fact that this is a ballad song. G-Dragon is known as a rapper, so most of his songs are hip hop, rap and up-tempo songs. But this music is just piano and G-Dragon’s vocal..

I could hear this over and over again and didn’t even bother to learn what he is singing about at first, but then I found English and Japanese translations online. It’s painful and a lot of people can probably relate to this song.

There is a lot of speculation that this song is about TOP, a member of Big Bang who recently got into trouble for marijuna use. He got arrested and I can write a whole article about this, but I am sorry that you had to go through all that for marijuana.

Because this song was released amid TOP’s scandal, many fans are saying that this song must have been about TOP. But I don’t think so..I mean, he says “I wish I could meet you even in my dreams and fall in love again like this. ” Japanese translation simply says “…and love you again like this.” so the nuance is slightly different.

Regardless of who G-Dragon is singing about, it is a beautiful heart-wrenching song that many of us can relate to. I have my theory and pretty sure that he is singing about his ex girlfriend whom he had dated on and off for 4-5 years. They met when they were still starting their career and a long-term relationship in 20s is always special.

I went to G-Dragon’s concert in Los Angeles recently, and fans were able to see different sides of him. He looked very frail (his drastic weight loss is worrying his fans!) and said that this album is very personal to him.

He showed his vulnerability probably for the first time. He was able to reflect on himself. That is why his latest album is simply his full name. “Kwon Ji Yong” is different from G-Dragon who is full of confidence.

At the concert, he talked about having a lot on his mind and being a little shy. He feels lonely lately just like anybody else does. He has achieved everything. Fame and success. But probably what makes us happy isn’t that..it’s about love, meaningful relationships with others. I don’t think we can truly be happy without having those relationships no matter how much money we make.

Whoever he is singing about, I hope that Ji Yong’s true feelings will reach her..it may not and two may never rekindle the old broken relationship. But all we can do is to embrace and learn from the past and keep moving forward. Don’t let go of what matters to us no matter what because we may regret it deeply later.

Lyrics Translation (Updated)

I know it’s hard and difficult to come back to me
I know you hate and fear being hurt again
On that same day you left, I made you cry with my harsh words
I regret turning my back, I’m sorry

I’m okay with losing everything I have
if I could see you just one more time
I wish I could meet you even in my dreams
And fall in love again like this

It might be easier for me to just die
Than receive forgiveness from you
I sing this song hoping my sincerity will reach you
But I’m not sure it will
I wish you happiness
I can’t even give the simplest lies
I just pray for your return, I’m sorry

I’m okay with losing everything I have
if I could see you just one more time
I wish I could meet you even in my dreams
And fall in love again like this

Your heart says this is it
That this is the end
I can’t believe it
I can’t let you go because you never know
You for me and me for you
A love like us will never come again
Nobody knows, we always know

I’m okay with losing everything I have
if I could see you just one more time
I wish I could meet you even in my dreams
And fall in love again like this

If I could forget it all after this time passes,
all those memories and those happy moments

No, actually, even if it means meeting you in another life
And falling in love with you again,
I would, just like before
