A Separation That Couldn't Start



A beautifully lyrical performance of a touching Korean song from the OST of My Lovely Sam Soon. The song is Ibyol Mothan Ibyol (A Separation That Couldn't Start) by Loveholic, sung by Ji Sun.

**Ibyol Mothan Ibyol**

Idji anhassuni hemalgun usum
bitnadon uri yennaldurul
imi jiwossuni sumgappun nunmul
kamahge byongdun ne moyangun

Gude goun ne saranga sonul jabada oh
dashi negero waso gobdigoun kotnorechorom

Gadugkin monjirul toro on goul
hurin dalbiche shisobone
sewore giphun jam pusoghan olgul
sebyogisullo danjanghago

Gude goun ne saranga sonul jabada oh
dashi negero waso gobdigoun kotnorechorom

Sarang ajig gu jarie
hanbondo ibyol mothan ibyol sogeso
dashi doraonun gunal
gutte ne norega i sesangul da gajilteni

Gude goun ne saranga sonul jabada oh
dashi negero waso gobdigoun kotnorechorom
udne




**A Separation That Couldn't Start**

I haven't forgotten your bright smile
Our youthful past
I've already let go
The tears from my heart turned me into a dark figure

You, my delicate love, hold my hand
Come back to me like delicate flower song

I wiped the dusty mirror
The moonlight shines upon it
Plenty of deep sleeps comfort our face
A midnight slowly approaches

You, my delicate love, hold my hand
Come back to me like delicate flower song

Love is still at that place
Where separation couldn't start
When that day returns
This song will take the world

You, my delicate love, hold my hand
Come back to me like delicate flower song
And smile

Another great Korean TV show! This show was actually my introduction to Korean TV dramas, unless you count some limited exposure while living in Japan. My second exposure was "Dae Jang Geum."

Thanks for posting the lyrics and the translation to the song!

I loved Kim Sam Soon. Kim Sun Ah is a wonderful actress, able to switch from being funny to serious to sad, all in the blink of an eye, and be entirely convincing in each mood.

As for the song, Ibyol Mothan Ibyol, it was clearly a song for the other girl in the drama, Hee Jin. I love the way the singer, Jisun, perfectly enunciates every syllable of the lyrics. Korean can be a beautiful language when spoken or sung by someone like Jisun, or Lee Young Ae.

hallo Chuck! Wow you can speak Korean?? Cool man! We have many Korean drama series showing on our local tv channels and they are already translated into Mandarin. But we can choose to switch to hear Korean.

Just a little embarrassed now.. 3 more days to go.. pls vote for me (again?? LOL) for APAC best travel blog award via the voting widget above my shoutbox on the right sidebar of my blog. THANK U!!!

Hi, Eunice. No, unfortunately, I don't speak Korean. I wish I did! That's someone else's translation of the song lyrics. But, I will stop over and vote for you in the travel blog competition.

Hi!! Wow Do you like korean drama and music?

It's so interesting !! Kim Sam soon was so famous drama in Korea.

I know this story !!!

Hi, Jisun. I love Korean dramas, and a lot of the music on the drama OST's. My three favorite K-Dramas, in order, are:

Dae Jang Geum
My Lovely Kim Sam Soon
Beethoven Virus

And I'm currently watching Queen Seon Duk, another great one.

Among those I've seen, I'm a big fan of Lee Young Ae, Kim Sun Ah, and Ko Hyun Jung.

I only wish American dramas were more like the Korean ones.

As for the singer Jisun, I've been a fan of hers since first hearing her in Kim Sam Soon. What a beautiful voice.

Keep up the good work on your blog!
