English translation:

Seung Gi: I’m nervous and excited

MC: I’d like to sincerely welcome everyone to Cafe Tonight which opens only for tonight. I’ll be hosting Lee Seung Gi’s 5 Minute Music Broadcast, my name is Park Ji Yoon. It’s nice to meet you. Everyone has been anxiously waiting for this moment. The person that we’ve anxiously been waiting for has the current nickname of “Daesae” (meaning Megatrend in Korean). Ranging from Crown Prince all the way to Megatrend. In short, he’s a singer who can accomplish anything.  The currently released album is ranked 5th in the nation. It seems like Lee Seung Gi’s image will always be reminiscent of a young boy or teen. Right here, we will present to you for the very first time a live performance of Lee Seung Gi’s ‘Because We’re Friends’.

Seung Gi: Compared to my established ballads, this one is different. It has a strong rock beat sound as its base, the synthesizer comes in strong and takes the lead while the drum beat adds a lot of rock into this song.

Seung Gi at the end of his performance: I’m very happy that I was able to pull this off with my staff and think I’ll be able to sleep well after a long time.


I was going to embrace your shoulders because you were crying
But I just put my hand down
Because I’m a friend, a friend, a friend
I’m just a good friend to you

I want to go to that guy who is hurting you and punch him but
I can’t, I can’t I can’t
Anyway, I can’t be anything more than just a friend

* I want to suddenly hug you, kiss you on the lips
Comfort you, who would be surprised
And be the one who will make you happy
I want to tell you these things but I only clench my fist
Eventually, I can’t say those words
Like a coward, I make an excuse for my heart – we’re just friends

Because I’m afraid of your obvious rejection
Because we might not be able to even be friends
I love you, I love you, I love you
I hide those words that I want to tell you

* repeat

If I wait one more day, I wonder if you will look at me
Every time I see you crying
I get so mad that my heart feels like it will burst and cry

Although I hurt as much as you hurt
Although I swallow my tears
I can’t go a step closer to you
I deceive my heart saying that we’re just friends
And like a fool, I just cry inside
And on the outside, pretending to be a good person,
I just say, we’re friends
