I Confess (고백합니다) by F.T. Island

Listening to

I Confess” a song by F.T. Island (short for Five Treasure Island, a 5-member pop-rock band from Korea; members age around 21-24 years old) has been going on and on in my head and mp3 player. It is not a new song though. I get to know this song while watching We Got Married Global Edition Season 1, in the episode when Fujii Mina put on her gown and showed it to Lee Hongki (lead vocal of F.T. Island) and I got hooked since then. Well, I don’t understand Korean, nor I’m a fan of F.T. Island (oops, sorry), I just find the song very catchy, sounds sweet and I’m also attracted to the coarse voice. Wahahaha… He he… to be honest, I don’t know them before the show. After being attracted to this song, I searched for their songs in YouTube and realised that there are some really nice ones and they do sing well.

Season 1 was broadcast sometime in 2013 I think. Reason why i watched Season 1 was because I happened to catch Season 2 on TV and finds it quite interesting. And yes, I’m hooked as well…wahahaha… It is a reality show yet at times seems real. And some scenes were really sweet and touching. Besides Lee Hongki and Fujii Mina, 2PM’s Taecyeon (oooo…handsome…wahahaha) and Emma Wu were in too. They are funny…. catch it if you have the chance.

Hm…not sure… I wonder if there’s ever a couple got together in real life after that…

So, here’s the song (I couldn’t find their MTV, but found this unplugged version which is nice too):


Here’s the lyrics:

이젠 내 맘 고백 합니다 하늘만이 내 맘 압니다
소중한 만큼 아껴온 나의 진심을

말하려니 눈물 납니다 추억들이 스쳐갑니다
그대 아니면 없었을 오늘입니다

[#] 처음 만났던 그 날 난 어설프고 또 어렸죠
지켜봐 달란 내 말을 믿고 기다려준 시간들

때론 내 실수로 마음 아프게 했죠 매번 날 탓하지 않고
괜찮아 괜찮아 웃으며 내게 힘이 되었죠
바쁘단 핑계로 서운하게 할 때면 원망도 했을 법한데
걱정마 걱정마 차라리 위로하며 믿어준 그댄 거죠

염치없이 바래 봅니다 그대 마음 영원 하기를
그대를 위해 난 매일 더 노력할게요

[#] Repeat

그대와 내가 만든 추억들 울고 웃은 시간들
죽는 순간에도 기억할게요

말한 적 있나요 그대를 사랑합니다
흔한 그 단어로 밖에 사랑해 사랑해
그 말 밖에 담을 말이 없어서

다시 말합니다 그댈 사랑합니다
뜨거운 내 맘을 담은 오늘의 고백을 영원히 그댄 잊지 말아요 사랑해요


English Version:
I now confess my heart to you. Only the heaven knows my heart.
I feel tears coming out,
at the thought of telling you my truth that I’ve kept so preciously.
All the memories pass by me.
Today wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.

[#] The day we first met, I was awkward and young.
The times you waited for me just because I told you to trust me.

At times, I hurt you with my mistakes. But you never once blamed me,
and gave me strength smiling, ‘it’s okay. it’s okay.’
Whenever I made you upset saying I’m busy, you could have blamed me.
But you believed in me, saying ‘don’t worry. don’t worry.’

I selfishly hope that your heart will be the same forever.
I will try my best everyday for you.

[#] Repeat

I’ll remember all the memories we made, the times we cried and laughed,
I’ll remember them even at the moment I die

Have I told you before? I love you.
I love you, I love you,
There is no other word to say it other than those common words

I say it again. I love you.
Please never forget my heartful confession today. I love you.


Please correct me if I’m wrong. Not sure if his name is Lee Hong-gi or Lee Hongki; not sure if the title should be “I Confess” or “I am going to confess”. Both came up when I googled…

Personally, I really love his voice. Pretty unique, coarse and quite powerful. Found some clips which he sang live…wah…like it can penetrate into you… For his age, I think he’s good. Am really hooked…
