in light of my (other) current obsession,
I am challenging myself to learn some of my favorite korean songs.
the real challenge will be *drum rolls*
to only learn them reading the hangul lyrics.
that is right!
ONLY the korean lyrics.
I'm still a very slow hangul reader but I'm pretty sure I can do it.
The first song I learned was Taeyeon's Fine
took me about a week to finally get the hang of reading the lyrics with the singing LOL
(start Mar 25th, so-so mastered Apr 4)
of course that one I learned with the help of the romanized lyrics too.
what I learned (berapa banyak perkatan 'learn' dahhhh) from that experienced is that
the romanized lyrics confused me.
coz I know how it supposed to sound (of course with the help of listening to the song too)
and the romanized spelling does not spell like how you supposed to pronounce it.
I'm not saying the romanized is not helping. it helped A LOT.
I'm saying its annoying when you confidently read the hangul and your eyes went down reading the romanized lyrics and it spelled different than what you were pronouncing.
*buat muka annoyed and mata ke atas*
Thus, I decided to challenge myself to learn my next song, BoA - 옆 사람 (Stand By) full on hangul lyrics.
its a ballad. slow song.
you bet yo ass I can't read and sing Korean songs when its upbeat/laju/fast-beat.
antah apa ku baca, antah apa ku sabut. (￣。￣)
take it one step at a time.
it's not like I'm going for a competition with this *air* talent *quote*
I'm just surprise that I'm not trying to learn SHINee songs first.
I guess I'm more comfortable singing girlie songs at the moment.
I mean, I'm not saying SHINee don't have good ballad to hafal, I'm just saying, I don't want to be greedy. LOL
seriously, I have no reason why their songs isn't on my list of songs to hafal, ok?
