Bae Seul Gi – Seul Gi Say

This seems to me a modern interpretation of the Habanera from Bizet’s opera “Carmen”. Totally clever in its theme common to the original French libretto, which translate as “Love is a rebellious bird that nobody can tame, and you call him quite in vain. If it suits him not to come, nothing helps, neither threat nor prayer…” Stylistically appropriate in its use of prominent dotted rhythms, which are central to the original composition. Aesthetically refreshing in its employment of sophisticated hip-hop beats and extensive rapping. I like “Seul Gi Say” much better than her recent 2nd/3rd plug “다가와 (Come to me)“, though she still sings live better than most of the girls from Girls’ Generation.

I’m a self-confident and elegant woman. Don’t come to me if you’re poor

널사랑한다사귀어보자용기하나믿고덤비지마라

If you love me, then we should go on a date. Don’t chase after me with half-hearted attempts

사랑이전부라말하던남자결국엔부자아가씨를만나
Sa lang i cheon bu la mal ha deon nam ja kyeol gugen pu ja a ga sshi leul man na
Men who’ve said that love is their everything will still go after rich women in the end

나도똑같아계산이빨라미래에투자하는게맞아

In the same way, I swiftly calculate and invest for my future

(남 : 왜내맘을몰라줘) 흥

이런내가변해가어쩌다널만나여자가되어가
I leon nae ga byeonhae ga eo cheo da neol man na yeo ja ga doe eo ga
I’m starting to change, becoming just like any other woman after I met you

사랑믿지않던나너의맘하나거기에놀아나
Sa lang mid ji anh teon na neo ui mam ha na keo gi e nola na
I used to have no trust in love. Now you’re playing with my heart

Rapped verse
자꾸전화기만쳐다보게되고
Ja ggu jeon hwa gi man chyeo da bo ge toe go
Always looking at the phone

너의한마디에맘이요동치고

Touched by what you said

왔다갔다요리저리내맘이내맘이아닌것같아
Wadd da kadd da yo li cheo li nae mami nae mami a nin geod gata
Unsettled, my heart seems not to belong to myself

정말아무것도없는 (사람) 그냥바보같이믿는 (사람)
Cheong mala mu geod do eobd neun (sa lam) Keu nyang pa bo gati mid neun (sa lam)
Like a fool, I’m trusting a man who has nothing

왜내맘이자꾸 (이런담) 정말나같지않아 (원망)
Wae nae mami cha ggu (i leon dam) Cheong mal na gat ji anha (Won mang)
Why am I like this? This doesn’t seem like me at all

해도소용없어다필요없어너의맘하나찾아헤맸어
Hae do so yong eobseo ta pil yo eobseo neo ui mam ha na chaja he maesseo
There’s no use blaming others. I’m lost trying to look for your heart

예전의나로돌아가고싶어하지만어쩔수없어
Ye jeonui na lo dola ga go shipeo ha ji maneo jjeol su eobseo
I want my old self back but in vain

사랑하나때문에울고우는내가될줄정말몰랐었는데
Sa lang ha na ddae mune ul go u neun nae ga toel jul cheong mal mol lasseodd neun de
I’ve never thought that I will become someone who laughs and cries because of love

내게무슨일생긴건지
Nae ge mu seun il saeng gin geon ji
What’s happened to me?

너를갖고싶어서
Neo leul gaj go shipeo seo

니가나만바라보게하고싶은마음에내가날버려가
Ni ga na man ba la bo ge ha go shipeun ma eume nae ga nal peo lyeo ka
To make you only look at me, I’ve lost my old self
