Was browsing on videos from GDA on YT when I suddenly bumped into this video. This is my first time seeing our Prince Kyu do the dance, I mean really dance. Imagine the shy Kyu (sometimes?) could actually do the moves. Amazing!
On 1:25, check the grooves baby. ^^

please take out with full credits. thank you!
though it’s a late notice, I am so so proud of our boys for having been recognized here in the Philippines and the Filipino ELF’s are supporting their album all the way.
Now, this is what I call great performance and simply amazed by how fast our fellow ELF’s are in uploading the video for other less fortunate ELF’s (like me) could watch it too in an instant. Seeing our Yesung belt it out in the first few seconds is like heaven to me and literally got teary eyed by it. That part was on their Sorry Sorry Answer song. Oh men, our KRY is obviously the vocals of our group. Then there’s our EUNHAE. Whew, they are simply unbelievable. Our boys, dang! Words can’t really express how I feel right now. This is Cloud 9 people!
Go check this out!
It’s a story about a man who broke off his relationship with his girlfriend of nth years even if he loves her so. Even if he knows how painful it is BUT still he had to set her free. Even if the girl is really trying her best to stop him from leaving her BUT still he was really adamant in saying NO and not continue the relationship anymore.
Why? Because he was being a coward. The man knew that he doesn’t have the confidence to protect his lady love forever. That’s why he left. The man knew that he only loved her because he needed her and not because he needed her because he loved her (you get my point?). He knew then that he can’t give her the happiness that she deserves.
Even if he hurt her, he was still hoping that somebody she’ll meet a man that would love her unconditionally and would stand by her forever and would never/can’t go a day without her. He’s wishing that somebody she’ll never meet a man that is NOT like him in so many ways cause he knows that she’ll be hurt until the end.
Even if they both regret breaking up with each other but still the man bid her goodbye. He do not want her to cry but instead pushes her to forget someone like him from her foolish past. He wants her to meet someone who would love her and treasures her forever.
The man wants her to be free that’s why he broke it off and wants her to be happy. Even if it’s painful, he’s still hoping that someday oh yes someday, they’ll never meet again. *sobbing*
This interpretation is just based on the lyrics of the song that were translated from Hangul to English thus making it as a short story or interpretation.
I like this. The video is clear. The 2 songs are great. Great perf. Although it’s their last perf of these song in SBS Inkigayo cause at that time, they’re on their prepration for the Super Show 2. This is an old vid actually, dated June 21’09.
