서른 즈음에 About Thirty

Another day drifts away
Like exhaled smoke
In my memories so small
What do I fill and live on

Drifts farther and farther away
Thought it was staying youth
In my emptying heart
Nothing more can be found

Seasons again return
But where my love that left
I did not let it leave either
I did not leave it either

Forgotten little by little
Thought it was staying love
Another day drifts away
Living on saying good bye every day
Living on saying good bye every day

by the late Kim Gwang-Seok (김광석). Died too young.

An immensely popular song in Korea in the 1990s,  this song made listeners look upon themselves. 

I need to look back too and take stock. Am leaving my thirties soon.
Happy birthday me! Happy birthday hubby too. He'll celebrate his birthday two days after I celebrate mine.

Here's a version of the song sang by Baek Ji-Young .

And no, I'm not feeling melancholic or anything. Just sharing a lovely yet sad song on my birthday. ^^


  1. Happy Birthday, Lina!
    Happy Birthday, Zaini!
    May all your dreams come true!
    Have a fun celebration!

  2. Veels geluk, Lina en Zaini! Lekker verjaar!

    Happy birthday!

    I've just decided the elephant, the zebras, the runner(s?), the cheerer-onners and the general-in-charge (that's me) will have a joined birthday celebration in Nara. Or some such thing. ^^
