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.

i love the title of the song because it's really sad and romantic. well, i totally love everything about it, specially the signer, JHJ =). My addictiveness to him is coming back. I remember after watching him in Potato Boy (the Ballad of ...something), i practically raided all the kdramas and movies that has him =).

Jo Hyun-jae sings? Wow! His voice blew me away and when I heard this song at the end of Ep 12, I was wondering who sang this song cuz I had to have it! What a nice surprise. He is not only handsome, he's got a beautiful singing voice as well. And I agree with everyone else--he has aged beautifully! Can't wait for this week's episode!

Wow, that is some "anemic" dancing! You can practically see the boys counting the beat (1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4) in their heads and trying to make their arms move at the right tempo! Reminds me of myself when I'm trying to "dance". LOL!

These are the kind of music videos I glimpsed at in the "90's that made me swear off Korean entertainment until I discovered Kdramas and dramabeans in 2007, and became a rabid fan.

I didn't like him in his previous series (three daddy...foxtail nine), but he proves to be a good actor in 49 days. I am really enjoying this series.

She does now! But I don't know if it will be on the OST. It's a remake of the song 'Starlight Tears', which is Kim Yu Kyung's song from the 'Boys Over Flowers' OST.

JHJ rendered military service (required of all South Korean men) starting June 2008 and was discharged in June 2010. Then he had to set his career aside for a while to take care of his ailing father who died October 2010.

In JHJ's case, it's in his genes!!! He is beautifully handsome, 100% natural. He looks even better without make up. Others have to put on an inch thick foundation to cover up the wrinkles, JHJ doesn't like putting on too much make up.

I'd never expected he sings good like a prof. He had a great voice. I thought Rain was singing this song that time I was watching episode 15 of 49 days. :)
