‘What Is Love’ by Exo-K

So SM Entertainment launched a new project called EXO back in 2011, a 12-member band divided into two entities: EXO-K sings in Korean and EXO-M things the exact same songs but in Mandarin. That kind of marketing is kind of strange but strategically interesting. I remember checking out the whole thing when SM actually launched the group but not more than that. Each member is supposedly a mirror version of one of the member in the other group. EXO-K members are all Korean and EXO-M members are Korean, Chinese and Canadian. I think visually it’s confusing because they kind of all look the same to me. I never really listened to what they were doing but recently I came across one of their first songs called ‘What Is Love’ that was released in 2011 and I very much like it. It’s what I call a good rnb song. They went and fetched for Teddy Riley… no wonder! If you don’t know Teddy Riley, he’s an American RnB singer, songwriter who wrote among others for MJ, Snoop, Eternal, Foxy Brown, Robin Thick, Boyz II Men, and more recently kpop artists like Girls’ Generation (The Boyz) and Jay Park…

Girl, I can’t explain what I feel
Oh baby my baby, baby, baby, baby yeah

하루가 마치 1분처럼 느껴지게 만들지
너만있으면 영화속의 주인공
널 보러달려가는 액션신이라도 찍을것 처럼 난 마치 영웅이 된 것처럼

넌 내게 완벽 상상해봤어
함께라면 어떨까 yeah
난 너만 괜찮다고 말해주면 모두 완벽해 oh baby

I lost my mind 너를 처음만났을때
너 하나빼고 모든것은 get in slow motion
내게 말해줘 이게 사랑이라면
매일그대와 수많은 감정들을 나눠주고 배워가며
싸우고 울고 안아주고
내게 말해줘 이게 사랑이라면

세상남자들 모두 날부러워해
너를 가진 내가 질투나 죽겠나봐
해가 가도 달이 가도 절대 안변해
난 보기보다 우직하게 믿을남자라는걸
넌 알게될테니까

I don’t know why 절대적인 이감정
내가 생각조차 했을까
내 곁에 있을때 난 점점 대단한 남자가 되도 빛나는 걸

I lost my mind 너를 처음만났을때
너 하나빼고 모든것은 get in slow motion
내게 말해줘 이게 사랑이라면
매일그대와 수많은 감정들을 나눠주고 배워가며
싸우고 울고 안아주고
내게 말해줘 이게 사랑이라면

exo

간절히 바라고 바란다면
이뤄질까 동화얘기처럼
영원한 둘만의 해피앤딩 happily ever after
나만은 널 믿어주고 지켜주고 달래줄께
니편이 될께
니곁에서 절대 안떠나

I lost my mind 너를 처음만났을때
너 하나빼고 모든것은 get in slow motion
내게 말해줘 이게 사랑이라면
매일그대와 수많은 감정들을 나눠주고 배워가며
싸우고 울고 안아주고
내게 말해줘 이게 사랑이라면

세상남자들 모두 날부러워해
너를 가진 내가 질투나 죽겠나봐
My babe, baby babe, baby baby
널 알아보는걸 이게 사랑인걸
아이처럼 널 자주 웃게만들고
친구처럼 널 가장 편하게 만들꺼야
My babe, baby babe, baby baby
말해줘 내게 what is love

Here’s the Mandarin Version
