Current Obsession: Boyfriend Obsession

More idol group comebacks in this week’s Current Obsession! Meet Boyfriend, whose second mini-album “Obsession” released this past week. Also, its title track aptly fits in with this series, no? That being said, this is one catchy song that has me humming along all day long.

BOYFRIEND – “너란 여자 (Obsession)” [ Download ]

The Band: Kim Dong-hyun, Shin Hyun-sung, Lee Jung-min, Jo Young-min, Jo Kwang-min, No Min-woo

The Backstory: Like most other new(ish) idol groups out there these days, there isn’t all that much that I know of BOYFRIEND, so I was surprised that the group debuted back in 2011. Their debut single “Boyfriend” wasn’t all that memorable; however, I love many of the Starship Entertainment artists (SISTAR, K.Will), so I knew that it’d be a matter of time before one of their songs would become an earworm.

So even though it took a while, it was “Janus” that first caught my attention. From there on, I didn’t follow the group all that diligently. That is, until “Obsession” showed up and now I want to learn more about these young cuties. Especially the Jo twins, and no, I can’t tell them apart. Yet.

Come to think of it, I must have known of at least one Jo twin a few years back because I recall watching an episode of a variety show (Quiz to Change the World) where K.Will was promoting his new single and had backup dancers. It was all very hush-hush because the boys hadn’t debuted yet, but the guests were surprised at just how pretty and doe-eyed one of them were.

The Song: Although there isn’t a particular reason why I chose this song from the other music offerings, I suppose I’d have to say this was the one song I kept turning back to.

The Lyrics: (Korean from Naver Music and English from PopGasa)

그늘이 져가 너의 얼굴에
숨겨도 티가 나 투명한 니 표정엔
아니라고 하지 마 우는 거 다 보여
빼지 말고 어서 내게 털어

자꾸 예쁜 손에 물이 묻잖아
번진 니 화장에 화가 나잖아
그 자식 일이지 맞지 내게 말해 uh!
니가 말만 하면 내가 뭐든 할 테니

유리 같은 니가 깨질까 yeah
초조해 눈을 뗄 수 없어 난

Break it up Back it up 많이 참아왔어 난 그 놈이 왜 좋아
내 품에 가슴에 부서져라 널 안고 지키고 싶은데
당길게 끌려와 눈물 속에 빠진 너 왜 그리 살아 어?
나만 보자 나만 알자 그냥 놔둘 수 없어 널

어려워 너란 여자 대단해 너란 여자 불안해 너란 여자
You don’t even know what to say no more girl~ hey!

뭐가 아쉬워서 걔란 앨 만나
그렇게 속고도 왜 걔를 안아
걔는 너라는 작품을 전혀 몰라 uh!
너라는 예술의 값어치를 모르지

내 말 똑바로 들어 지금 그거 사랑 아냐
착각 말고 니 꼴을 한번 보란 말야
미련에, 집착에 너 왜 이렇게 애써
왜 이렇게 취급 받아 너 왜 이렇게 됐어

딱 잘라 말해줄까? 너 훨씬 아까워
대체 니가 뭐 못나서 그딴 자식 만나 가슴앓이 해
그럼 난 또 망가지는 널
지켜보면서 몰래 혼자 가슴앓이 해
있어줄게 내가 니가 필요한 곳에
이젠 안해도 돼 불필요한 맘 고생
Look Back it Look Back it See 언제나 내가 있어
이제 넌 필요해 너만의 BOYFRIEND

그곳에서 꺼내줄게 널 yeah
지옥이라도 뛰어들테니

내가 널 많이 널 사랑해서 그래 다 내 맘을 왜 몰라
속이 타 애가 타 철없는 니 사랑에 널 한번 돌아봐
니가 더 많이 더 사랑 받음 좋겠어 너 밖에 몰라 난
나만 보자 나만 알자 모른 척 할 수 없어 널

어려워 너란 여자 대단해 너란 여자 불안해 너란 여자
You don’t even know what to say no more girl~ hey!
그래도 너란 여자 여전히 너란 여자 사랑해 너란 여자

Let go! Time’s up girl

 

There’s a shadow on your face
Can’t hide it, your face shows it.
Don’t deny it, I can see you’re crying.

Don’t hesitate, tell me everything
You’re getting your pretty hands wet.
Your smudged makeup angers me.

It’s his doing isn’t it?
Tell me uh
Tell me and I’ll do anything.
You’re like glass, I’m afraid you’ll break.
I’m nervous I can’t take my eyes off you.

Break it up Back it up
I can’t take it anymore.
Why do you like him?

I want to hold you in my arms so tight and protect you.

I’ll pull, grab on.
You’re drowning in tears.
Why do you live like this?
Just look at me,
I can’t see you like this

You’re confusing, girl like you.
You’re incredible, girl like you.
You make me anxious, girl like you.

You don’t even know
What to say no more girl hey
Why do you keep seeing him?
Even after all that hurt, why do you hug him?

He doesn’t understand the masterpiece you are uh
He doesn’t know how much you’re worth.
Listen to me
This is not love
Snap out of it and look at yourself
This foolish delusion, why do you try so hard?
Why are you being treated this way,
what happened to you.

Break it up Back it up
I can’t take it anymore.
Why do you like him?

I want to hold you in my arms so tight and protect you.

I’ll pull, grab on.
You’re drowning in tears.
Why do you live like this?
Just look at me,
I can’t see you like this

I’ll tell you outright.
You’re too good for him
Why must you be heartbroken by a guy like him.
I’m heartbroken watching you wrecked.
I’ll be here, wherever you need me
You don’t have to suffer anymore

Look back it
Look back it see
I’m always here
You need me, your boyfriend

I’ll get you out of there
I’ll even jump into hell,
because I love you.
Why can’t you see that?

I’m tormented by your immature love,
look at yourself.
I wish you’d be loved much more
I only know you, you’re impossible to ignore.

You’re confusing, girl like you.
You’re incredible, girl like you.
You make me anxious, girl like you.

You don’t even know what to say no more girl hey
Still, a girl like you.
As ever, a girl like you.
I love a girl like you.
Let go! Time’s up girl

One thought on “Current Obsession: Boyfriend Obsession

  1. When I first discovered Boyfriend I thought they were to feminine for my tastes. But “Janus” changed my mind. Them I watched “I Yah”. They are and will be the cute guys but the 2 music videos showed a different side. I actually bought their album “Janus” and it was my first kpop album. “Obsession” doesn’t make me feel creepy for liking them because of the darker and bad boy image. But they will always be known for the cute concept.
