Kim Jang-hoon is one of famous singers in South Korea and debuted in 1991 as a singer. He is also famous as a subscriber to charity and called “donation angel” in Korea. So far, he donated about 15 million dollars. I want to introduce one of his famous songs calls “나와 같다면/na wa ga dda myun/if you feel the way I do.” The song was famous more than ten years ago, and it became popular again by another Korean singer Kim Yeon-Woo. He sang the song again in 2011. The song is slow ballad, so I think you can learn through watching video below. If you studied Korean alphabet through my previous blogs, you would know how to read the subtitle. Summary of the song is about a couple who broke up and a guy wonders whether she thinks about him or not when she doesn’t have any appointment and stay home by herself. Let me translate beginning sentence for you “어떤 약속도 없는 그런 날에 너만 혼자 집에 있을 때 넌 옛 생각이 나는지 그럴 땐 어떡하는지/ eo ddeon yak sok do eop nun gu run nal aen neo ma hon ja jip ae it sul ddae neon yet sang gag e na nun ji gu leol ddan eo ddeo ha nun ji/ when you stay home by yourself without any appointment, I am wondering that you are think about the past and how you handle it.

As you know, when you learn a foreign language, you need to approach a variety of language side such as a song, drama, bible, text, reading, etc. If you memorize a Korean song, it will be helpful to learn Korean language and I recommend the song because it is very slow and famous. Enjoy the video below.
