チングジャナ  -友達だから

Because We’re Friends~Japanese Version


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

[English] Noonas over Flowers to air in Japan on 2/14 at 6pm on Mnet

My previous posting had details about Noonas over Flowers being scheduled to air in Japan on Valentine’s day with the original broadcast time being 6pm on Mnet.  The rebroadcast times were also mentioned. Here is a poster and an article from Japan about the upcoming show followed by English translations.

Here, they are introducing each noona, a mini biography, and their role in the show. Seung Gi is last and is the porter. Notice how everyone’s name is in katakana, one of the 3 writing systems. Because their names are Korean, it is spelled that way. Japanese names are always written in kanji, which are Chinese characters.  Foreign names and words are written in katakana.
