Jo Hyun-jae sings for 49 Days

Kang-ahhhhh, singing for me? *Swoon*

Actor Jo Hyun-jae is contributing a track to the soundtrack for his current drama, 49 Days, following fellow castmate Jung Il-woo, aka our sassy Scheduler, who previously recorded a track. Jo’s contribution is titled “Even If I Live Just One Day,” and was released just today.

As you might guess, given the recent turn of events in the drama, it’s something of a confession piece as Kang starts expressing more of his love for Ji-hyun, which has hitherto been massively repressed by his extreme awkwardness displaying any emotion at all. He’s workin’ on it.

SONG OF THE DAY

Jo Hyun-jae – “단 하루를 살아도” (Even If I Live Just One Day) [ Download ]

Lyrics:

I’ve waited for so long
I’ve hurt so much
As much as the traces left by that long time
I’ve longed for you

Tired footsteps have brought me to your side,
though I know there’s nothing I can do

* (chorus)
Saying I love you
are words my heart has always shouted
Saying I love you
are words I’ve repeated, behind you
Saying I love you
are words I couldn’t say, afraid you’d run away
I love you
so much that I’m afraid
I love you

Like the stars in the night sky,
always visible
but unable to be approached or touched
That must be my fate, to watch over you

Waiting for you every day, foolishly looking forward to it
I harbor hopes that have grown

* (chorus)

I’ll confess, I love you as much as today
If I could only live one day, I’d want to be by your side
I’ll confess
I’ll say the words now
I love you

It’s a lovely song, and I’d known that Jo Hyun-jae could sing; he’s sung on soundtracks in the past. But I hadn’t known that he’d actually gotten his start in the entertainment biz as a singer in a boy band back in 1998, back when he was 19 years old… along with fellow star Kim Kang-woo. The group was called Guardian, but they’d only made three television appearances — on cable — singing their song “Sad Fate” (슬픈인연) before fading away. Frankly, I love ’em both as actors, so I’ll chalk it up to fate knowing what she was doing.

OMG:

First of all, there are the outfits. And the Sohn Ji-chang hair. And overall nineties flair. Not too bad, as far as idol fashions go — it’s nothing compared to the wackiness of, say, H.O.T back in the day. But the dance moves are pretty anemic, and the lip-synching (back then a staple, which nobody batted an eyelash at) IS SO BAD.

Jo Hyun-jae is freakin’ adorable, though, even when doing the backup-dance side-shuffle in the back row, but the thing that made me choke and almost injure myself? KIM KANG-WOO, RAPPING. Omg omg. The serious, somewhat dry, self-professed conservative actor of today, lip-synching to a soft R&B ballad-rap? Priceless.

It is a beautiful song, once I figured out how to click the play button... (we all know I can be a little slow :-) )

Do you think he'll get to sing it in the episode as Kang-ah? He does have a piano in the restaurant after all.

I think MJP meant if Kang will end up singing in an episode for the show....

kind of like when park shin yang sang in the famous 'paino scene' in Lovers in Paris..

Gosh wouldn't that be sooo awesome if Kang played piano and sing this song for yikyung/jihyun!!!

The dance moves are frickin' hilarious. And JHJ's singing is okay in the first song, but I have no idea what happened in "Sad Fate" because he was completely off-key when hitting the high notes >.> Really made me cringe.

I'm gonna go ahead and say he's a much better actor than a singer :)

These moments were created by Fate so we will have something to gush over now that JHJ and KKW are in our to-stalk list.

Although JHJ and KKW will probably chalk it up to mistakes-of-the-past-I-won't-repeat-in-the-next-life.

Well I know why JHJ was in the back, um, "dancing."
You could almost see him counting
"One, and two, and throw the dice,
and skip, and slide, and
throw the dice the other side..."

But, cute? Oh yes, and looks pretty much the same now!

And yeah, Jo Hyun-Jae has aged very well. When I watched him played a highschooler in 49 days, I had to suspend my disbelief and just went it, but after seeing how he looked at 19 years old, the believability factor really went up.

Yeah, JHJ playing a high school student in 49 Days looks definitely believable now that we've seen his 19 year old self. It's like he didn't age that much. JHJ as kang-ah: adorkable! JHJ singing in 49 days: double swoon...!
