Songs Where The Title Is A Play On Words (Or Has Meanings You Might Have Missed)
Mostly Kpop songs but there is one other song in a different genre. (I apologize for the change in fonts, I don’t have a Hangul keyboard on my laptop so I copy and pasted the Hangul into the card which caused the fonts to become smaller.) Valkyrie (발키리) - ONEUS Play on Korean word 밝히리 (balkhiri) which means Shine, it sounds like Valkyrie. Though they do also say the word valkyrie in English the song just once. G.R.8.U (대.다.나.다.너) - VIXX The korean title translates to 'You're Impressive' but they used the slang word in Korean (대.다.나.다.너)(dae.da.na.da.neo=the shortened version of the formal saying 'You're impressive.' I could not find the formal spelling to show you guys). The same goes for the English title, 'G.R.8.U' is also a slang spelling for 'Great You.' 1004 (Angel) - B.A.P The Korean word for 'Angel' sounds and is spelled exactly like the Korean word for '1004.' (천사=cheonsa/angel/1004.) A.D.T.O.Y (하.니.뿐.) - 2PM This one isn't really a play on words, more or less a shortened version of a phrase. In English it's just an acyronym for 'All Day I Think About You.' 하.니.뿐. (broken down below) is a shortened version of 하루 종일 니 생각뿐이야 (halu jong-il ni saeng-gagppun-iya.=I think of you all day.) 하.니.뿐 = Ha.Ni.PPun, which is the shortened version of HAlu jong-il NI saeng-gagPPUN-iya. HookGA (Hook가) - HIGH4:20 May seem like it's supposed to be Hookah, but apparently according to member Alex it's HookGA (GA as in 가) which means in Alex's words 'Go to the Hook (of the song)' or 'bring the hook.' If you look up the meaning to 'bring the hook' (후크를 가지고) the roman form is 'hukeuleul gajigo' which could mean they also did a shortening thing by taking out the hukeuleul jigo part and had the English word for 'Hook' and kept the GA (가) part still holding the meaning of 'bring the hook.' But I mean their unit name High4:20 still... HALA HALA - Ateez Just an acyronym for Hearts Awakened Live Alive. Though those words are never said in the song. Only HALA HALA is used. La Vie En Rose - IZ*ONE 'La Vie En Rose' is a metaphor in French for seeing live through a rosy pair of glasses, in a sense of utmost joy and state of bliss. Or in other words 'a state of mind where everything looks and seems happy and joyful around you (rosy) when you are in love.' (Source) DKDK (두근두근) - Fromis_9 DKDK an acronym of sorts for the Korean onomatopoeia of a heartbeat (두근두근=dugeundugeun (swap the g's out for k's and shorten it and you got DKDK.)) %% (Eung Eung) - APINK %% is a play on the Korean Hangul for 'Eung Eung' which looks like a percent sign when tilted to the side a bit: 응응 looks the same as %%. The name is also homage to the internet slang in Korea which is ㅇㅇ, which is a kind of a way to you could say "ok" or "got it." ㅇㅇ is the shortened version of 응응. Korea loves to shorten phrases or words if you haven't noticed! JamCome On Baby (잠깐만 Baby) - Yoon Mirae (Korean Version) (English Version) The English Title is called JamCome On Baby but the Korean title is 잠깐만 Baby (Hold Up Baby.) 잠깐만 sounds like JamCome On (jamkkanman.) All I Need - Ninety One (Non-Korean Group) Play on the Kazah word Дегенмен ол айнды (Degenmen ol aynïdı=however, she feels repelled) the ол айнды (ol aynïdı) sounds like the Enlish words 'All I Need.' Any songs I missed?
NINETY ONE {WHY'M} & the Powerful Message.
Back on New Years Day, NINETY ONE released a new song. It's very touching and very powerful. The message they send is heartwarming. Now I don't speak Kazakh yet, but going off the English Captions they included in the song: It tells us not to dwell on the past. Don't let your yesterday steal your today. Live for the moment. Everyday is a new day. That our mistakes turn into experiences. Learn from them. We will all fall apart at some time, but we will also overcome any obstacles. Most importantly, we as people are our own worst enemy. Love, discover, try, and make mistakes. It's all part of our growth as human kind. This song is touching. Not going to lie, I have it on repeat most of the time. Today, 91 as well as their Juz family released a video sharing a touching message for everyone. I get it, sometimes noone understands you. It feels like you were abandoned to face this world all alone. Only you and your monsters. Gray Sky, frozen walls, and people without a fire. So you picture, "this is my environment." However, it is only the vision inside of your head. At that moment, stop, take a deep breathe, and put your buzzing thoughts aside. Listen to your heart. Do you hear that? That is calm. No one can touch you here. In this space, only you and your heart are present, And your heart, your world and your beliefs. You are not alone. It is the only place in this world which exists just for you. Love is your home. When there is a snowstorm outside, at school, work or in the family, look at it from the window of your home (heart). Remember this home. Yes, sometimes noone understands you, yet show them your home. This is a very powerful message. I'm a bit emotional lately and this hit me in the heart. This was what I needed to hear. So, thank you NINETY ONE. I have needed to hear this for so long. It's also probably safe to say at one point in our lives we've felt misunderstood. But we're not alone. NINETY ONE COUNCIL: @QueenyCrossGene @InfiniteUtopia EAGLEZ: @Halsyeon @Maelyn @MarvelousKpop If you would like to be added to the Taglist please let me know ♡
Meet NINETY ONE
Hello all. So I wanted to say Hi, and announce that I'll be President of a new community, NINETYONE. [I have decided that I will not be running for mfect for the next quarter. I still love them dearly, I just feel I will do better promoting NINETY ONE.] So Background About Ninety One: Ninety One or 91 is from Kazakhstan. They debuted under JUZ Entertainment in 2014. The band consists of five members: A.Z., ALEM, ACE, ZaQ and BALA. Beginning of Ninety One: The guys came up with the name NINETY ONE/91 since they were all born after 91. They combined western and Kpop, forming a new genre Called, Q-Pop. They were met with much resistance starting out, with people saying they went against traditional Kazakh traditions and customs. During their tours, they had to overcome many obstacles, one being of protestors who would deliberately ruin their sets and stages. Other people would pay the venues not to allow them to perform. In one particular area, Qyzylorda known for their conservative traditions, they were met with opposition for reasonings that they were "too gay" to represent Kazakh Men, and culture. They already had a fanbase, so the 5 guys with a dream set out on a mission to find a place they could hold their concert, hoping to not let their fans down. Unfortunately, they had zero luck and had to cancel for lack of venue. As they decided to hold another concert for fans in Shymkent, they were once more met with resistance from youth activists that organized an event to overrule the band. In the cities of Zhezqazghan & Adobe, people either sabotaged their sets or threatened anyone willing to let these boys perform. They were oppressed, with no help from authorities to prevent them from being sabotaged.
