Call me baby, call me honey, call me sweetie, yo!
I'm digging everything I'm sensing from the vibes off you"

"Oh, is this for real?
Take a look at me waiting for you

"Baby in a city light, in in in a city love light."

They're apologizing for something, but I'm not sure what. (1:00 and 3:10, "Baby I'm Sorry")


SHINee

"I call you butterfly"


"We gonna go rocka rocka rocka rocka rocka rocka. So fantastic

I want you screaming JYJ verse 2."

"So, probably your money is unpublic
Try to save my life like a puppy and cream
Another hot movie character bumble bee
Treat me like a slave and I pray is it halloween
Trick or treats oh please don't even try
To pull my head down your way
Brand new person. A man?
So fuck off no more talk"

... Wait, what. (1:30 and 2:50, "Mission")


Yoochun

"My love is bigger than gingerbread man's vitality"


This whole song is evidence that Yoochun just isn't that great at English, if you couldn't tell already. (1:30, "My Girlfriend")

Really need to argue with U-KISS part. The "r-squared-pie" lyrics is the most beautiful lyrics people ever wrote for me (AJ did a great job as the lyricist). Google the meaning behind the song "0330" and you'll know what I mean. Anyway, this article is so funny and all hailed king Himchan and Super Junior

shrumin Tuesday, January 27, 2015

LMFAO!!!!!!! lol..... ;now this is why kpop is amazing in its own way.......... ;thats how make us laugh and giggle like lunatics in the middle of nowhere

The funny thing about this is JYJ is one of the only groups in KPOP who has many English songs and they sound and make perfect sense. It's just some of their Korean songs have bad writers or they just put random English in to make it sound 'cool'.

I'm here like if only you knew that himchan is correct on sayin loof because a loof is an actual English world which mean a carousel/ merry-go-round this relates to the mv where he is a burning loof/Merry-go-round

There is an english verse in Red Velvet's Be Natural:

Welcome to my heart inside

We're gonna have to become one

Just holding you forever in my mind



so shouldn't it be Welcome inside my heart, we're going to become one?

Asterids Thursday, December 25, 2014

This is just too funny and embarrassing.

gabbsdoramafreak Thursday, December 25, 2014

It's: don't deny our R-squared pi (meaning don't deny our heart)

not don't deny our love is r-squared pi ;

cookiestrd2eatme Tuesday, December 30, 2014

It still means don't deny the area of a circle- which I won't- I will however deny our love lol JK it's just a little joke- we all know what it means/says

li_xiao_yan Thursday, December 25, 2014

... U-Kiss's lyric at least makes sense if you're a math nerd. Circles are a perfect shape and are used as symbols of eternalness. ;

This article is very fun though. :D thanks.

Lovelyz have the best XXX rated lyrics in Candy Jelly Love - "You'’re the best ever come in my life." ;

marksmilk Wednesday, December 24, 2014

correction : ;don't deny our r²π. Idk what u just wrote but I fixed the words for you. That's what AJ really said.

and honestly some of these actually made sense, when I saw them i was like " wait? why is this on here? "
