Joo Ji-hoon makes a love serenade

Fans may have known that Joo Ji-hoon (Antique Bakery, Goong) could sing — and I suppose if he’s heading a musical he must have some skills — but this is my first time hearing the model-actor’s voice, and it’s pretty nice.

Joo Ji-hoon serenades Shin Mina in their upcoming film, The Naked Kitchen, a clip of which has popped up online (watch below).

In the film, Joo plays a genius chef from France, and sings a chanson version of “사랑밖에 난 몰라” (although I can’t make out any discernible French) as a sort of love confession. The original is a trot-style song sung by Shim Soo-bong.

The Naked Kitchen opens on February 5.

Not bad at all. Better than some of his live singing I've seen on Youtube. Guess you can keep recording until you get it just right. :D

Nice voice but terrible accent^^

It is French, I recognised my language (he said "toi" and "tu sais") but only because of those two words... :)

But still, he has a good voice, so romantic..

Yup, I also hear French. Not my language, but I took it for a few years, so I perked up when I recognized it. The song itself sounds really familiar, but I can't tell for the life of me if it's because I've heard the orginal before or I've just heard the English version.

lol, ichigopan makes me curious what his live singing must be like after hir comment.

This seems like its going to be another movie you get me excited about. And I'll feel like it took forever to get release so I can watch it with subs.

He's got a nice voice but sorry to say, as a native French speaker, what an awful articulation/accent/phrasing... ;o)

So awful indeed that I couldn't even make any words before reading you said it could be French and therefore listening more carefully... Which is not good, when a song is in one's mother tongue, is it ? ;o)

Whoever phonetically transcribed the song could not speak French well (and there seem to be a few French mistakes), I'm sure (Joo Ji-Hoon obviously doesn't understand what he's saying, as he links syllables from different words, and stuff)...

What I could make out during my efforts amounts to the following (*** stands for when I couldn't make out any understanble word, even with lots of auditive imagination ;o) ) :

Ton **** est près de moi,
Tu t'évanouis dans mon regard,
Hier, la rose et nous,
et aujourd'hui grâce ***** de toi
je suis bien dans la joie
sans casser, sans masquer l'amour
seule la tendresse nous fait pencher le coeur,

Et lentement, l'oubli
doucement l'oubli
car, ***, je me sens un peu seul
en votre absence, 사랑밖에 난 몰라

Which, in English, would give approximately:
Your **** is next to me
You vanish in my gaze
Yesterday, the rose and us,
And today, thanks to your ****
I'm completely in joy
without breaking, without hiding the love,
only tenderness can make our heart falter

And slowly, oblivion
softly, oblivion
because, ***, I feel somewhat alone
when you're absent, 사랑밖에 난 몰라

Here, hope that helps some of you, and sorry for the long post... ;o)

Happy Lunar Year everyone, and thanks Javabeans for this wonderful blog which allows me hours of procrastinating during my work day!

OMG, I am totally confused. When I watched the movie two weeks ago I recognized immediately he was singing in French because when I was in school I had French lessons for 6 months, just enough to say bonjour and aureoir but the sound of the language remained in my hearing memory. Please, understand my confusion, I am Brazilian and I speak Portuguese, don't understand French, even less Korean. I was delighted with the song and his voice twhich sounded very sweet and harmonious. The song has not left my head and I spent days trying to memorize what he sang to now discover that he is speaking ana lien dialect . Need to deprogram everything cuz I am pronouncing exactly as he did. Could you clarify if there is a recording of this song in French, pronounced correctly?

Yeah indeed, I didn't understand him but he's cute and has got a good voice so I forgive him ^^
Bérénie, you must have replayed it many times because I would not have been able to understand all that!! XD
When you put "nous fait pencher le coeur", I understood "nous éponge le coeur"... Hum Hum... But well, he's really handsome and has made a big effort, CHEER! <3

I don 't know him....didn't watch Goong but he could have made a great Rui ...he has that look. And he looks as tall as LMH. No use thinking about it but can't help it. BBF would been fantastic with the right casting because I am enjoying the story line.

LOL I only managed to make out the word "joie" and that's about it. Kudos to Bérénice for writing down the lyrics. I'll listen to the song again while reading them: it may make a difference.

Anyway, his voice is great.

with JJH singing this french song with not at all a hint of a correct french pronunciation - its UNDERSTANDABLE. For koreans to speak english is very hard to replace their phonetic sounds, how much more in french. It takes a good coach also to really have him practice the song...since in this movie he came from france they might have had make a good effort to do so. But anyway...its not that bad at all, quite cute !

OMG, his voice is awesome... but not sure about the pronunciation co'z I can't distinguish @ first if it was Korean or French. However, the last word was *Moola* right, isn't that Korean?

Yeah, I didn't believe it was French until I really tried listening. Some words he pronounced a lot better than others, but I couldn't make out the words Bérénice missed either. I also think there were even some mistakes in the translation that Bérénice fixed. That being said, I don't think it was his fault. He did pretty well on some parts.

despite the obvious flaws, that was really nice. i was always one to turn to jello whenever joo ji hoon smiles. i'm surprised that girl isn't more floored. i'm jonesing for a goong comeback-anyone else?

Maybe this time JJH and Shin Mina couple will have a nice onscreen ending versus Devil, where he was too hung up on vegeance and used her powers to get to the people he needed to find.

Besides the strange outfits in his latest media pics, I do think he has gotten more handsome.

I wouldn't imagine this is Joo Ji-hoon's singing and it's quite sweet. Thx for posting, javabeans, and thanks for the translation, Bérénice.

I wouldn't mind Goong II with the original cast (crew et al) - I second you, sweetmochi.

he sounds so cute and his voice is very clear (even though his pronunciation wasn't)!!!! his french sounds korean to me. i used to dislike joo ji hoon (thought he was horrible in Goong) but now that he's appearing in more things that involves him smiling and showing more charisma, i'm starting to actually like him. And i hope he doesn't lose any more weight- he's starting to look a bit too thin.

i never liked him much in goong...but O MY GOD i think he just charmed me with that voice of his LOL. at first i thought he was singing in korean too until i heard him say "dans la joie" which was when i figured this was supposed to be french -- other than the intruding accent, this was a lovely surprise. looking forward to this movie and antique bakery now!

Hello there

jess come for help you! haha
i have the JJH's lyric ;)

I'm french and i can say it was difficult to understand his accent
but now it's good i all understand! lol

alright i put here the lyric:

"Dès lors que vous êtes près de moi
Je m'évanouis dans vos regards
Hier, la gorge nouée
Aujourd'hui grâce à vous
Demain je sais viendra la joie

Sans grâce et sans masque, non non
Seule la tendresse pouvait m'épancher le coeur

Et donner à l'oubli tous ces moments vécus
Car depuis vous je me sens impuissabt
En votre absence
사랑밖에 난 몰라 (= je ne connait que l'amour)"

So happy when i understood this after many and many listenning to this song! lol

im also a native speaker and some parts of the lyrics given up there doesn't make sense..
so ok the pronounciation's not that good but there are things you can still understand:

Dès lors que vous êtes près de moi,
je m'évanouis dans vos regards.
Hier, la gorge nouée
aujourd'hui, gràce à vous demain,
je suis bien dans la joie...
sans casser,
sans masquer l’amour,
seule la tendresse nous fait pencher le coeur..
Et lentement l’oubli
doucement dans l’oubli

Car depuis vous je me sens impuissant
Dans votre absence 사랑밖에 난 몰라

that'll make in english something like:

As soon as you get close to me
i vanish in your gaze
Yesterday with a tied throat
today, thanks to you
tomorrow, i’m completely in joy
without breaking,
without hiding the love,
only tenderness can make our heart falter
And slowly, oblivion
softly, oblivion
because ever since you
i feel impotent/helpless
when you’re absent, 사랑밖에 난 몰라
