“STORY” by Japanese singer A.I. – song cover by Sarah G. vs Super Junior’s MINWOOK

First off  I’m not trying to start a fan war here. ^_^  Before you all roll your eyes on this.. Read full post first 🙂  I like Sarah. My mom & sister are a big fan of hers, Attended her concert multiple times.. Yeah lol…and No doubt she’s our country’s pride & one and only pop star princess.

I was browsing on to look for the profile of the original singer when search engine gave me “Sarah G japan”. So i watched and learned that it was one of those popular songs in Japan. Having mostly Pinoy audiences in her concert and hearing them sing a long w/ Sarah is wow.. indeed the song “STORY” is a big hit (from 2005 till present)

But you know we people can’t help but compare right?….So i compiled different versions from YouTube and yes, everyone’s got their own style.. ^^

Let’s move on to a more bias comment coming of course from a SJ fan ^^ (yours truly) ^^

Kim Ryeo wook and Lee Sungmin are part of the Korean idol group Super Junior, that has recently finished a succesful concert in Tokyo Dome (50,000 audience capacity)

Of all the performances collection of the boys in the whole DVD i intentionally skipped wookmin’s part. LOL. When i finally Gave it a try//watched/listened .. There I was WOWED by their rendition and got this impression of “let the music do the talking” and just by watching them you can actually interpret the song meaning & the strong emotions behind the song. These kids really got a lot of potentials.. enough said..and by the way i enjoyed MinWook’s more than Eunhae’s oppa oppa lol. Just kiddin’^^

MinWook’s rendition has touched me deeply in many ways. ^^  and i will not lie it cause me to shed a few tears every time I’ll listen to it. Excuse me… I’m just a softy. ^_^

So there… Go read the trans and watch the different versions i attached below If you like.. not forcing you guys.. But yeah… give it a try LOL…

English Translation

Just what is it that I can do 
In the time that I’m limited to… 
Which of my feelings that I can’t find the words for 
Can I tell to you… 
I’ve always kept them locked away 
You made the pain in my heart disappear 
Now, I’m smiling 
Because you cried with me 

I’m not alone 
Because you’ll protect me 
I can be strong, I’m not afraid of anything anymore…. 
Time calms me 
And passes together with my pain 
Sun light gently shines down 

I can’t explain it to you in words 
So it’s alright if you don’t smile 
If there’s something on your mind, then want you to ask me about it anytime 
When you’re tired, I’ll lend you my shoulder 
No matter how strong you pretend to be 
There are times when you’ll let out a sigh 
Loneliness is a heavy door to move 
If we stand up together, we can start to move it again 

You’re not alone 
Because I’ll protect you 
I want to see your smiling face 
Time calms me 
And passes together with my pain 
Sun light gently shines down 

Sometimes people get hurt as they’re hurting others 
Each of our colors are different 
But we each of us have our own story  – my fave part!!!!
We live our lives as we make it 
So never (never), never (never) 
Give up… 

You’re not alone 
Because I’ll protect you 
I want to see your smiling face 
Time calms me 
And passes together with my pain 
Sun light gently shines down
