Because I’m A Girl – Kiss (Korean)

I found this video a long time ago, and didn't know anything about it… except it was an arresting "mini-movie" length Koren music video. It's either amazing romantic or insane, depending on your point of view. KISS broke up shortly after the album was made. Something people still talk about…

English translation of the lyrics:

I just can't understand the ways
Of all the men and their mistakes
You give them all your heart
And then they rip it all away

You told me how much you loved me
And how our love was meant to be
And I believed in you
I thought that you would set me free

(REFRAIN):
You should've just told me the truth
That I wasn't the girl for you
Still, I didn't have a clue
So my heart depended on you, whoa

(CHORUS):
Although I'll say I hate you now
Though I'll shout and curse you out
I'll always have love for you
Because I am a girl

Been told a man will leave you cold
Get sick of you and bored
I know that it's no lie
I gave my all, still I just cry

Never again will I be fooled
To give my all when nothing's true
I won't be played again
But I will fall in love again

(REFRAIN)

(CHORUS)

I loved you so
Now you leave me in the cold
How could this be
I thought that you'd only love me

Into the night
I will pray that you're alright
You hurt me so
I just can't let you go

You took advantage of my willingness
To do anything for love
Now I'm the only one in pain
Will you please take it all away

Never thought being born a girl
How I can love you and be burned
And now I will build a wall
To never get torn again

(CHORUS) [2x]

    I totally remember this video and talking to my friends in college about it. "Have you seen that video where the guy gives the girl his eyes?" Yeah. So melodramatic. Melts.

    I remember when I found this video on The Internet, back in the day (when Asian sites tended to be very slow before more fiber capacity was layed under the Pacific). I didn't know what to make of it and didn't have any context. (Thank goodness we have the Wikipedia now!) But I discovered that all my Asian internet friends knew about it… ^^ ("Old hat!")Even though the song and the video are hardly related at all, they do have quite an impact. An amazing discovery for me, back in the earlier days, when almost *everything* was a discovery for me! :)Have you seen the Ding Xiang Hua video I recently posted? It's got a "big ending" too! 😉
