  1. Hello~ I provide rough translations~ that are more coherent than Google's

    Don't cry, today is the day we set out
    We won't be able to meet for a while, but we will be friends forever and ever
    It's so great, being able to meet all of you
    We will be advancing on different paths, but we will never give up on our dreams
    Don't let the sound of the last bell linger
    I want to tell you all the feelings I've always been hiding away, so I take a deep breath

    Bye Bye Bye, Wiping away our tears, we say goodbye
    Look, the future is waving to us
    We can't turn back the clock and go back to the Happy days
    We spent together, so let's take it slow and walk on forward
    Let's look towards those winding roads, and Happy days will also continue from here
    Thank you, until the day we meet again
    Until the day we meet again

    The album chock full of memories, the messages from all of you,
    No matter where I look, only loneliness remains
    But I'm not going to cry, for today is the day I begin anew
    I wish for all of your happiness from the bottom of my heart
    The last bell finished sounding, so
    The unrequited love I believed would not get granted, is unexpectedly...!

    Bye Bye Bye, hand in hand, we say goodbye
    Look, the future is smiling at us
    Smooth-sailing Lucky days
    Underneath the drifting cherry blossoms, let's take it slow and walk on forward
    Let's look towards that dazzling light, and Happy days will come, where our wishes all get granted
    I won't ever forget, always, always and forever

    There will surely be tough times on the future we are about to embark from here
    But it is absolutely okay, no matter how old we get
    At that moment, all we thought about was that place - the Start line!

    Really, thank you for supporting me until today's today
    I can't convey these feelings to you, My true love
    But from tomorrow, I will go all out, towards brand new days, so

    Bye Bye Bye, Wiping away our tears, we say goodbye
    Look, the future is waving to us
    We can't turn back the clock and go back to the Happy days
    We spent together, so let's take it slow and walk on forward
    Let's look towards those winding roads, and Happy days will also continue from here
    Thank you, until the day we meet again
    Until the day we meet again


  2. If you haven't noticed by now, the lyrics jjy posted are fake (and really poorly written as well) so please await the official lyrics (which I may or may not post, since I'm technically on a hiatus >__<) ~ Anyway, I just want to say that I like this song~ I'm not a fan of electric-y (?) songs but it's really catchy and fun, cute but not overdone (lol it rhymes), which is classic KARA. It's this over Pandora for me as well. I can't wait to hear what Orion sounds like! I hope it's about stars/constellations because I'm quite into that kind of stuff lol


  3. umm i translated this whole mini album to english if you guys want to read it.

    (I'm jaejoongie <3 from soompi XD, i'm not stealing this translation ^_~)

    Hi jaejoongie, I hope you don't mind me posting your translations on the Songbox? Due credit will be given, of course ^^ Also, may I know if the lyrics are official, and if so where did you obtain them from?

    Thank you very much <3

    On the topic of the album, I really like all the songs. I think the songs in general are a step up from their previous releases (eg. Lupin), yet they still manage to stay true to their roots of "Sweet Melody". I'm definitely not disappointed ^^ Pandora is really great and I especially like its instrumentals; I can't wait to see them perform it live!


  4. Can't wait!!! More KARA songs to go into my playlist~

    I hope someone translates the pictures Vennie posted... From Step's experience, I think this has something to do with copyrights (??) and anyway, I think the hangul beside the green boxes are lines from each song! So if someone translates them, we can get an idea of what the songs might be about ^^


  5. The pictures that red4summer shared are from this DAM 2012 Summer Choreography Karaoke. There's a GO GO Summer and a Mr. version

    Mr.

    GO GO Summer

    Can you tell whether the instrumentals for GO GO Summer changed? If so, it might be the 2012 version! ^^

    I can't wait for the solo songs to be released in Japanese!!! I mean, I've always preferred Japanese things >_< They should have performed the Japanese versions in KARASIA's Japan tour so we can get a preview haha.


  6. Hi! I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up with those tweets recently T__T Fortunately, curbow did most of the translations too so I guess I'll post them here...? >__< (hopefully he doesn't mind!!) I just filled the gaps teehee

  7. I think KARA renewed their contract with UMJ hahaha.. I went to KARA's UMJ page and their most recent update was yesterday, about KARASIA. If the contract wasn't renewed, there shouldn't be any more updates, right? Since KARA would already be part of another company... And what about "KARA Best Clips II and SHOWS"? But who knows? I'm just guessing too ^^

    Anyway, I'm quite excited about their concept!! Looks great~ I'm willing to bet it's a double A-Side. Hopefully, their voices won't be processed too much >__<


  8. Art

    "How could she, when looking into his eyes meant that he would be looking into hers?"

    The assignment for the day was easy – well, at least the deciding-what-to-draw portion of it. For someone who could spend a whole thirty minutes deciding on whether to draw a cricket or a grasshopper; a tortoise or a turtle, it was indeed a pleasant surprise that Han Seungyeon took only a mere second to make her decision this time. “Draw a human portrait”. The fickle girl was firm in her decision too. She wanted to draw Onew Lee.

    It was funny how Onew was the first thing that came to her mind when she thought of the term “human”, because Onew was nothing like that. Well, humans have flaws, right? Onew was practically flawless. Sure, he didn’t have that desired golden ratio face, or body proportions akin to that of Michelangelo’s David – but really, who had the right to deem these traits as “perfection”? Seungyeon couldn’t care less. To her, Onew was the ideal, the one that possessed the best combination of features. Not only did he have breathtaking good looks, he was really nice and jovial as well. How could she forget the time he opened the door to the classroom for her? Or bought her sandwiches when she felt hungry? Or lent her his pencil when the lead on hers broke?

    “You shouldn’t write with a broken pencil,” he said.

    “No one does,”

    “Yup. After all, it’s pointless!” He laughed at his own joke and handed her the pencil he was writing with. “Here, you can use mine.”

    “Really?” Seungyeon asked. She was giggling too. It wasn’t her fault. The joke was indeed funny.

    “Really! I have loads of these at home. My friend’s father owns the manufacturing company, you see. You can keep it if you like!”

    Of course she would like to keep it. It was an ordinary 2B pencil that could be found in any other bookstore: black with yellow stripes, with an eraser attached to the bottom. Yet she could not bear to use it. After all, it was a gift from Onew. A gift from an angel. She really considered herself extremely lucky that an angel like him could descend from the heavens, to grace this lowly school with his presence. And, in the meantime, thought Seungyeon, take up a human form too, so that I can draw him in all his glory. Perhaps, this would be the right time to use his pencil; who knows, maybe a few tables away, he’s using the same kind of pencil to do his assignment too, and we’ll be using the same pencil together…

    She started with his hair – and no, she did not keep any of the chestnut-brown strands in her desk drawer, as much as she would like to. But she did get a feel of his hair once; it was soft and fluffy and feathery, like strips and strips of cotton candy. She would give anything to touch his hair again, but what were the odds of a spider getting tangled up into his hair a second time? And what were the odds of her being the only person around him to help him get rid of it again? Practically zero, especially after Onew started gelling his hair together so that it looked sleek and neat against his head. He still looked gorgeous though, but she liked the cotton-candy hair better. So cotton candy it was. She made a sketch of the shape his face – heart-shaped and symmetrical, with a distinct V-shaped jaw line. Then, she made swift, light strokes with her pencil; they reached behind his ears to the back of his nape, making his slender neck stand out even more…

    Perfect. She got his outline done. Now for the details – his facial features. She wanted to draw his eyes first… but how did they look like, again? It was strange, that she could remember every single detail about his appearance, but could not remember what his eyes were like. Were they round, droopy, or almond-shaped? Were their irises black, brown or gray? It was useless trying to remember, in fact, for she realized that she had never looked directly into them before! How could she, when looking into his eyes meant that he would be looking into hers? When eyes were supposedly the “windows to one’s soul”? What if he managed to see what she really thought of him? What if he managed to see what she really felt towards him?

    Needless to say, Seungyeon never told him how much she worshipped Onew. She never tried to show it through her actions either. It would probably scare him off… why, after all, would an angel like him pay special attention to her, one of the hundreds of thousands of mortals below him? The only way to get close to him, she knew, was to treat him like a mortal too, to treat him like he was just a regular guy-friend, to treat him like he wasn’t part of her dreams every night. Better to be regular friends than to be two strangers who wouldn’t talk to each other due to awkwardness after a one-sided confession, she reckoned. Yes, Seungyeon vowed never to tell Onew about her feelings. It hurt; it was extremely unbearable, but it was the only way. Unless, of course, if Onew was the one who took the first step…

    Come on! I’m waiting! Confess to me!

    Not that it would ever happen… but she could hope, right? As long as she had hope within her heart, she would never give him up…

    She drew his eyes squinty and slightly squeezed shut; his cheeks raised high and his mouth in a wide grin. There. A Duchenne smile. This would make up for the eye problem. And… he looked cuter when he smiled like that. Duchenne smiles are usually linked to pure, genuine joy. She liked to see him happy. She wanted to see him happy. Even if she wasn’t the reason…

    “Hey!”

    Seungyeon jerked up from her drawing at the sound of that voice. That voice… Onew! Did he just talk to her? What was he doing at her side?

    “Class is over. I’m here to collect your work. Are you done?”

    “Y-yes! In a minute!”

    “Are you sure?” It doesn’t look finished to me,” said Onew, peeking at her drawing. “It’s not bad though. But the guy looked a bit too perfect, if you ask me. Is it some actor in some drama? Girls and their fantasies…”

    “Well let me see yours then,” Seungyeon retorted. She didn’t know if she should be thankful or offended that he didn’t recognize himself in her portrait.

    “All right,” said Onew. He pulled out a piece of paper from the stack he was holding. Was she imagining things, or was he actually blushing? “Here. If you really want to see it,”

    Seungyeon grabbed his drawing, and oh, how she stared, and stared! Who was that girl in his portrait? His crush? His dream girlfriend? That girl was practically flawless. Her cute bangs, her doe eyes, her rosy cheeks… no wonder angel-like Onew liked her. Seungyeon could never match up to her; she could never attract Onew’s attention with her around…

    “How’s it? Awesome, huh?”

    “Yeah…” Seungyeon said, swallowing the lump of tears in her throat. No, she wasn’t going to let him know how crushed she was. She cracked a smile. “It’s not bad, I guess. But the girl looked a bit too perfect, if you ask me. Is it some actress in some drama? Wait… you don’t watch dramas…”

    “Are you kidding? Can't you tell?” Onew asked incredulously. “It’s – ”

    Wait… no way.


  9. Just listened to the songs and they're not half bad! Missing was simply awesome <33 It's my favorite song of the 4 new songs, along with Do It! Do It!~~ I love that song too!! Dreaming Girl is like a cute version of Rider, but Only For You has a pretty weird tune hahaha... Nevertheless, it's a great album and I think it will do well~~ Considering people who didn't buy Winter Magic single and waited for this album... 85k first day and 105k first week perhaps? ^^


  10. I guess everyone knows that "Dreaming Girl" and "Do It! Do It!" are available for downloads as ringtones on Recochoku. I wish they would release these tracks to the rest of the world soon! I'm practically dying from all this waiting; I want to hear them too! ^^

    And I don't think UMJ is ignoring KARA; it's not like Winter Magic isn't promoted at all. Remember the giant posters on that building and the Winter Magic buses? I still think it's due to it not being winter yet... But Super Girl looks like it'll be a great Christmas gift, and Winter Magic is just a lead-up single to the album. If anything, I think that they will perform Winter Magic to promote the album, hence promoting the single at the same time ^^ Do I make sense? Anyway, I'm confident that Super Girl will be an album that fans will love ^^


  11. Physics

    "In the presence of this girl, there would be a whole new personality struggling to get out of him"

    Some girls could send a spark of excitement flickering through a boy, starting at his heart and gathering in intensity, until it was buzzing like electricity throughout his mind and body. Others could lead a boy into a complete trance, bringing his thoughts to a faraway paradise for hours and hours, without him noticing that she was long gone, without him realizing that he might never see her again


  12. ^ I interpreted it as Gyulee taking up the "Han Byul" persona... she wants to eat (the snack) but she wants to become skinny i.e. Jenny. In the ending, Han Byul becomes Jenny, thus she is not allowed to eat (out of character, I guess). I'm really sorry for the ambiguous translations; sometimes, it's hard to fully convey the intended meaning (in Japanese) with English >__<


  13. Hi! Haven't commented for 6 chapters so I shall do it now ^^ What I like about this story is that it manages to find a balance between the "serious" moments and the funny, lighthearted ones ^^ You talked about "chemistry" between Junho and Chunhei but I think the real chemistry's between Gyul and Taec hahaha Their interactions are <33! A few weird expressions, but awesome writing as usual! Keep it up~ fighting!! ^^


  14. I think this song deserves so much more love, as much love as Step, perhaps? I don't think people are as excited for a ballad as they are for a pop song, which is understandable, I reckon... but it doesn't mean that ballads are worse than fast tempo songs. I think Winter Magic beats many dance songs released by other k-pop artistes in Japan, don't you think?

    The PV is beautiful~!! I think it would be better if, at the end, after showing the presents half-buried in snow, the camera pans out and shows snow falling from the sky onto the houses but KARA have left the scene i.e. the guy doesn't show up... hahaha just my opinion ^^


  15. I think I'm calm enough now to write a proper sentence without going crazy ^^

    Step is totally beyond my expectations... I'm not a particularly huge fan of electric beats and vocal processing but I'm really glad that Step and all the songs in the album have a really fun and catchy "sweet melody" that is trademark of KARA songs, instead of going all one-tone *coughLucifercough* and autotuned, as I feared after seeing the teasers. Like all KARA songs, Step has the ability to lift my spirits and make me feel refreshed so I'm certain that I will loop this again and again. KARA's image definitely matured for the better... but somehow, I still see the lively and energetic KARA that I fell in love with (in the platonic sense) at the very beginning... Cutexy KARA ftw! ~

    And the lyrics...! Their songs have really inspiring lyrics, don't they? From "Pretty Girl" to "Lupin", "Go Go Summer!" and "Girls Be Ambitious"... and now "Step". There are many occasions when I relate better with their love songs but I really love the fact that they encourage us to give our best and be proud of ourselves... that's what makes them great role models for us, true "idols" for us to look up to ^^

    My favorite song is "Date (My Boy)"!! I fell in love with it instantly ^^ I think I'm the only one again hahaha >.<


  16. ^

    ^ DSP seems like a totally changed company... I can't believe they are the same ones that did the recycled stuff for Jumping... What's gotten into them? While I feel really, really happy and excited, I can't help feel a little suspicious... >_<

    Apparently there will be a second teaser?? I think it will show KARA in the colorful costumes and snippets of the actual song. Which means that there is a possibility that these gorgeous scenes might not make it to the actual mv :( DSP spending extra on KARA?? Weird... But nevertheless, I can't wait!! ^^


  17. Awesome <33 I'm getting vibes from Jumping, Wanna and maybe a bit of Pretty Girl... I can't wait! I'm really looking forward to their live performances because this time, they can really get creative with the outfits... Unlike their recent songs (especially Jumping), they can mix and match whatever they want instead of just changing the color scheme! ^^


  18. I think it's pretty legit, as Hara tweeted something about "Step it Up" once. Well, I really wish it is, since "Strawberry" and "Rider" seem like they will turn out to be really nice songs ^^

    And does anyone notice...? "Step" is a rearrangement of the letters "Sept"... i.e. September, their comeback month! Can't wait~~
