reds go together


video from commonerky’s library

that’s the title of the KTF World Cup song for the Korean soccer team… one of the most popular songs nowadays… it was even used by the Korean fans during their evaluation matches a few weeks ago… the song is performed by “Buzz”, a five man band whose lead singer happens to have a really good voice (and also a cutie – IMO!)… actually, i saw them perform the song during the eve of the Hi Seoul Festival at the Seoul Plaza… i even videotaped their performance but i unfortunately taped over it… “red” is the korean team’s uniform color while fans are called the “red devils”…

i’ve been suffering from last song syndrome lately and all i can hear is this song, which is good… at least it wasn’t like those times when the last song i could remember playing on my head was april boy’s “honey my love so sweet” (ngek!)…

anyway, June 13th is when the korean team go up against the african team Togo (whose head coach recently resigned)… it will be broadcast on Korean TV at 9:30PM… i bet all Koreans would be tuning in their Samsung PAVVs, LG Xcanvass(es) and DMB-enabled phones and navigation systems to the games tomorrow night… i’ll also be watching the game, although i’m not a big fan of soccer… i usually root for the team the Koreans are playing against whenever they have a match, to piss off my husband… but tomorrow i’ll be rooting for the reds… after all, i do have a lot of favorites in that team… Park JiSung, Park JuYeong (this boy’s amazing!), Lee YongPyo and Ahn JeongHwan (eyecandy!)…

unfortunately for my husband, he would have to watch the games in China… oh boy! we do have Sapporo beer in our fridge and it would be nice to drink it (with matching stinking o-jing-eo as pulutan) while watching the game… i guess i have to reserve the beers for the next game… seungni harira!

here’s the korean lyrics to “reds go together”

그댄 나의 챔피언 너와 나의 챔피언
우리 함께 외치면 승리하리라
그댄 나의 챔피언 너와 나의 챔피언
우리 함께 외치면 승리하리라 한국

모두 다 일어나 붉은함성 외치자
승리를 향해 달려가는 전사들이 듣도록

너와 나 다함께 이 노래를 부르자
영원한 승리자 그들을 위해

Reds go, Reds go, Reds go together
Reds go, Reds go, Reds go together
영원히 함께할 그대여

그댄 나의 챔피언 너와 나의 챔피언
우리 함께 외치면 승리하리라
그댄 나의 챔피언 너와 나의 챔피언
우리 함께 외치면 승리하리라 한국

모두 다 일어나 붉은함성 외치자
승리를 향해 달려가는 전사들이 듣도록

너와 나 다함께 이 노래를 부르자
영원한 승리자 그들을 위해

Reds go, Reds go, Reds go together
Reds go, Reds go, Reds go together
영원히 함께할 그대여

그댄 나의 챔피언 너와 나의 챔피언
우리 함께 외치면 승리하리라
그댄 나의 챔피언 너와 나의 챔피언
우리 함께 외치면 승리하리라 한국

    homg.. I remember singing along to this while wearing my red jersey. but when Korea got dropped, my mom ruined it by crying on it. O.o

    I remember all that. It was TOTALLY PHENOMINAL!!!

    but I cried at the Switz.Korea match, tho… T__T

    a depressing day. but we’ll get them back on the next one. I hope.

    hi!

    i was in korea during those football-mania days. my first time to set foot outside pinas unto a roaring red-clad, emotional, manic multitude.whew! and man, i could never erase park jisung’s face in my mind with all those bigger than life posters pasted everywhere.

    my stay was short but well-spent time. i am totally awed at how the koreans manage modernity while still preserving their culture. a breath of fresh air, i say when one is living in a country where everything is ‘canned’ or ‘westernized’, with all the ‘kewl bling-blings in mtv’.tsk tsk!

    then again, i was constantly reprimanded by my good host of my un-korean ways.haha! as in, “in this country, we don’t….” 🙁

    anyway, i didn’t get to see many pinoys there except those selling tilapia, balut and longanisa in hyewa. also a couple of lost guys looking for a church in sungbuk and this uber-noisy-giggling-and-ilocano-shrieking-ladies. 🙂 and oh, somebody from the subway that gave me the “i-can-smell-you’re-a-Filipino” look– and asking me later if i’m a factory worker. aghh!

    i’ll be back in october. 🙂 it’s gonna be a nice autumn.
