Lyrics: Ji Hyun Woo “Good Addiction” and “Dear Child”

JHW crescendo cover

I thought I could get away with not translating all of Ji Hyun Woo’s songs from his single album, but I guess not. ;) :)

Here is it!

“Good Addiction” (좋은 중독) Crescendo album

I love you. Any way you are.
Thank you. I will always be by your side.

The girl I know shines too brightly. She is beautiful.
I unknowingly fell in love from the first moment I saw her.

At times like a father.
At times like a friend.
At times like a child,
I will show you my cute side (aegyo).

I love you. Any way you are.
Thank you. I will always be by your side.

The girl I know is sometimes unpredictable and awkward.
Even all that is too lovable to me.

At times warmly.
At times cozily.
At times sweetly,
I will take up the challenge of aegyo.

I love you. Any way you are.
Thank you. I will always be by your side.

At times we might fight.
In those moments, I will be the first to beg for forgiveness.

I am happy because I met you.
Let’s walk together for a long, long time.

“Dear Child” (아이야) Crescendo album

Run strong, dear child.
Run strong, dear child.

If you look back now, you will completely collapse.

Run strong, dear child.
Run strong, dear child.

If you forcibly extend your neck to look at the place you must go to
You won’t be able to help but collapse
Since you are still afraid.

If you sometimes get scared, close your eyes and walk little by little.
Even if you stumble because you can’t see ahead of you, you will be cute.
Because you are at an age when you will be beautiful (no matter what you do).

Let’s run, dear child.
You haven’t yet come too far or gone too little
Let’s run, dear child.
You haven’t yet come too far or gone too little.

If you sometimes get scared, close your eyes and walk little by little.
Even if you stumble because you can’t see ahead of you, you will be cute
Because you are beautiful child.

It’s okay even if you take a different road.
The road extends without end.
We are still at a beautiful age.

Let’s run, dear child.
You haven’t yet come too far or gone too little.
Let’s run, dear child.
You haven’t yet come too far or gone too little.

Let’s run without looking back.
Let’s run without looking back.

  7. They actually played “Good Addiction” in the drama-that-shall-not-be-named but it’s not on the OST. My fav is “Dear Child”. Thank you so much!

      I knew it. I heard this song before! Please name the drama please? I really can’t remember where I heard this but I’m pretty sure I already heard this before. It’s just too familiar.

      • It’s “A Thousand Kisses” *shudders* Horrible to watch past episode 25 or so. I still have nightmares. But the OST is lovely!

  8. Very nice! Love his voice!

  9. That live performance of Good Addiction is aMAYzing
    Can you imagine if your readers and you were in an intimate setting with him during that song?
    They would have to carry us out on stretchers, seriously sexy and cute.
    Tanks for the words…

    Can anybody die twice? He already killed me like thousand times already, and with that live version of “Good Addition” with some giggles in the middle, I just die one more time (or two, or three?). I still remember when I saw QIHM’s poster and also watched him in the first two episodes, I felt like he is just some guy in some K-drama that was not handsome enough to grasp my intention. But now, I find everything in him attractive and super hot. No wonder they say, “the beauty is in the eyes of beholder”.

    Also, I loved that he stayed low after the confession and when he is becoming more and more popular. I have a feeling that this guy does not really care about fame and popularity. (maybe because he is a Sagittarius?) He just does what he really wants and think that he should do, even speaks his mind openly, which is quite rare in K-showbiz world. I just love everything, everything about him <3

    Thanks for the translation Joonni, I adore 아이야! I’ve been trying to sing along by reading the Romanization and my husband gave me a veerrry weird look. I’m tone deaf, I can’t even hum the ABC song, always avoiding anything related to singing, so me singing Korean song, uh-oh..good luck with that.

    Btw Joonni, have you heard You That Day, Humming Urban Stereo Feat. Yoo Inna? Looveee it. She has the cutest and sexiest voice ever.
