Falling in Love with “Faith”

Leave it to an OST song to push me over the edge. It’s amazing, isn’t it? The way a melody and lyrics draw out the emotions that lay flattened and scattered across scenes. I wrote in the “Faith” episode 4 recap that I was finally invested in the drama and at that time, it was the extent of my attachment to the drama. But slowly and strangely, I found myself thinking about Faith and its characters throughout the day, eager for the next episode so I can see their relationship develop.

I have never cared about secondary OTP’s before, an OTP entirely separate for the hero and heroine of the drama. But can we say that Gongmin and No-gook are really secondary characters? By cast listing, yes, but by their story and love line, no. I ship this couple real bad, guys, real bad. I love No-gook and her fiery spirit, her cold exterior, and her inner gentleness. I love Gongmin, his stubbornness and pride, and even his inferiority complex. Gongmin and No-gook’s relationship is a thin line between love and hate, and I’m dying to see that barrier burst into flames. No-gook and Gongmin are so compatible, and I can see how, once Gongmin lets go of his anger and No-gook opens her heart again, they will have partnership made up of love and respect. I see their future as a wonderful royal couple, ruling Goryeo with dignity and wisdom. Guh, I love them.

I’m not as heavily invested in the Eun-soo and Choi Young couple yet but since I’m such a sucker for epically doomed relationships, I wait with giddy anticipation for their relationship to develop. I mean, I love the concept. He’s a Goryeo warrior. She’s a 21st century plastic surgeon. He wants to die. She wants to live. They’re both trapped, Young inside the palace and Eun-soo in Goryeo. Young is going to find a reason to live and be a warrior, not because of a sacrifice and oath, but because he chooses to fight. And Eun-soo is going to learn there is more to life than big salaries and spacious apartments. He’s going to save her; she’s going to save him. They’re going to fall in love, but 660 years divide them. Will their love defy space and time?

Lyrics to “Carry on” by Ali (“Faith” OST) *music player on top of post

When I see you smiling in the same time as me,

only you are in my eyes.

A day colored by destiny,

it’s like a thousand years have passed.

I only feel you.

Reaching my white skin,

your breath gently permeates.

I must be dreaming every day.

Oh, like a lie,

you come without a word.

From the moment you breathed,

you became my heart.

I want to love and dream with you.

I want to live in your precious arms.

I love you.

You are my destiny.

Oh- carry  on, carry  on, carry  on, carry  on.

I’m falling into the same space as you.

My heart only feels you now.

You keep lingering in my heart.

I can almost touch you if I stretch out my hand.

I only feel you.

Reaching my white skin,

your breath gently permeates.

I must be dreaming every day.

Oh, like a lie,

you come without a word.

From the moment you breathed,

you became my heart.

I want to love and dream with you.

I want to live in your precious arms.

I love you.

You are my destiny.

Carry on, carry on, carry on, carry on.

I love you.

You who became my heart.

I want to love and dream with you.

I want to live in your precious arms.

I love you.

You are my destiny.

I love you.

Woo~

I love you.

Now that “carry on”…Is it our love with carry on? Or carry on without me? 😦 What is in store for our couple???

  6. I LOVE this song. Thank you for the lovely translation.

    I agree that sometimes an amazing OST song can push me from like to love. I think it was the end of ep. 4 when I heard this song for the first time that did it for me.

    No-gook and Gongmin are awesome, I look foward to them in a lot of ways. I rember watching the first scene with them and being all I SHIP YOU! I DONT CARE! I AM ON THIS SHIP AND I HAVE DRINKS!.

    I like EUnsoo and Choi Young because I think they are good for each other. Even if the relationship is doomed, the end result will be good. That and I just love that Eunsoo sasses the hell out Choi Young, I kinda want her to have glitter just to be able to see sparkly Choi Young.

    Thanks Jooni, I breeze through your other articles and came acrossed this. I love Faith! I just wish it could’ve ended more happily, but all in all, I love my Choi Young’s personality here, he makes a good looking warrior and I wish I was Eun soo. Thanks Jooni. 🙂
