Hi my dears!
I just want to share an inspirational, if not motivational, song which I first heard from the newest-ongoing drama” Dream High 2. This song is called Hello to myself and it is originally written and sung by Yeeun 예은 – the member of Wondergirls.

This song has gained a lot of interests not only because it was popularized through the drama, but because a girl group member has shown the capability to write a good music. Using the words of the 9gaggers let me say that the faith of K-Pop is restored!
On her twitter account, WG-Yeeun/Yenny explained her inspiration to her followers and fans alike:
I was hurting as I wrote the 2nd verse. I had to find myself back in 2006 when I was being rejected from auditions over and over again
The lyrics are honest. The melody is simple that it push forwards the emotion of the whole song. The lyrics are reflecting a conversation between the past self and the future self. How does it go? well you will have to read/listen it yourself. To a person like me, someone who has not found success in meeting her goals, this song speaks in a slightly different tone compared to its original meaning and inspiration. Like any other poems/songs out there, the interpretation is in the hand of the listener..
Yeeun Wondergirls Hello to Myself
Hello 여긴 이천십이년 이월…
Hello, it is February 2012 over here../Hai, di sini bulan februari tahun 2012…
아주 추운 겨울이야
It’s a very cold winter/ masa musim dingin yang sangat menggigit
Where are you? 얼마나 가까이 와 있니 그토록 원하던 꿈에
Where are you? How close are you from that dream that you want so bad/Dimanakah kamu? seberapa dekatkah kamu dari mimpi yang sangat kau inginkan itu?
다치고 지쳐서 일어설 힘조차 없어
그치만 넌 날 보고 웃겠지
혹시 너도 외롭고 지치면 여기 꿈꾸던 날 기억해줄래
