Seung Gi Coffee GIF and [Eng Sub] Invite MV

DCLSG is full of coffee related Seung Gi GIFS today and I couldn’t let the one I tweeted today go without posting it here. I’m also uploading the video where it was taken from, Invite, from his 5.5 Mini Album which I’m currently translating. Both are perfect timing for his new CF and the fall weather.  To see the English subtitles, click on the CC button.

[English] Translation of 5.5 Forest Photoessay Mini Album~ pages 80-93

In handwritten Hangul below the polaroid photo:

Epitone Project

English translation:

I really agonized a great deal to get this person sitting at this angle. (both in the photo and metaphorically speaking)  What should I do if he refuses? Contrary to expectations, I’m a cautious (blood) type B man. [For a description of personalities and blood types, click here: Blood types] At a certain recording studio in Chungdamdong which had a recording of stringed instruments, I gathered up my courage and asked him to work together with me. Compared to when I asked him about collaborating on a project, there was definitely an even more agonizing few minutes before he accepted.

This person was precisely Epitone Project.

In handwritten Hangul at the top:

Requiring several times more work than singing, my first producing project.

In handwritten Hangul at the bottom:

The satisfaction/pride of somehow having something perfect that belongs to me. ^^

 Although it is a collaboration project of course.

In handwritten Hangul at the bottom:

With a worn-out piano and Yoo Jung who smiles so innocently.

It was an extremely cold day.

Those who resembled warmth stayed by me at that location.

In handwritten Hangul at the top polaroid photo of Seung Gi eating with chopsticks:

I’m salivating so much I have to swallow it. Gulp!

In handwritten Hangul at the bottom polaroid photo:

I have a mania for good restaurants!

미니앨범 숲 63Credit: jejuslov

English translation:

I’m particularly obsessed with good restaurants.  The majority of what I search for through the computer or cell phone are precisely the nation’s good restaurants.  This is one place on the list of nationwide tteokbokki restaurants that I, who likes tteokbokki,  found through a search during my free time. As expected, the food is prepared on the spot and eating it immersed in that atmosphere increases the taste manyfold. Tteokbokki in oil.  As much as the distinctiveness of the name, its taste is enough to stimulate the appetite! Like this, it is a historical(?) moment where one of the places on my list of good restaurants is again being verified. More than that taste, what made me feel even happier was the friendly ahjumma who was the owner.

English translation:

On buildings and in between them. I ran into signs as I followed a very narrow path.  Could it be only my thought that it is like a filming set? Affectionately handwritten Hangul without a single trace of the alphabet from the English language, those signs also made me want to blend into them naturally.
