Immortal Songs 2 | 불후의 명곡 2: Poets’ Songs special [ENG/2016.12.03]


(Immortal Songs, Singing the Songs of Legends) Immortal Songs, singing the songs of legends. On today’s Immortal Songs, we will hear beautiful songs with lyrics written by poets. Please pay special attention to the lyrics today. Singing the songs of poets. Let’s begin. ♪ The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ The answer is blowin’ in the wind ♪ (First poet and pop singer who) (Won the Nobel Peace Prize, Bob Dylan) (Poetry has been through us through the ages) (Existing even in the present in songs) (Beautiful poems have been turned into song lyrics) (Making great songs even more touching) (Lyrics that leave you feeling) (The lingering imagery through melody) (Singing deeply touching poetry) (Singing the Songs of Poets) (Pride of rock, Kim Bada) (Elegant vocalist Im Taekyung) (Outstanding ballad singer KCM) (Very, very, very lovable I.O.I) (Sentimental vocal group Take) (Man of many talents, Kim Hyunsung) (Heartrending vocalist Wax) Immortal Songs, singing the songs of legends. (Looking around) – It’s lovely in here. / – It really is. (Loveliness is abound) An older friend who hasn’t been here for a while. (Older?) You’re way older than her! She’s younger than you. You were born in 1969. Wax is here. (Wax) It’s been so long since you’ve been on our show. (Ballad queen who sang “Dimwitted Adada”) 409! Wax! (And won the Moon Juran special) (Queen of touching ballads) (Returns to Immortal Songs!) It’s been two years since you were last with us. What do you think of the atmosphere here? We have a very young crowd with us today. The only female singers are I.O.I and me. (Feeling like the odd woman out) There are too many I.O.I members for you to say the “only” female singers. You can say that if there’s one or two of them, but not if there are that many. But there aren’t any boy bands. (Just full of older guys) Kim Hyunsung is here. (Immortal Songs’ dancing king, Kim Hyunsung) He looks gloomy again today. We spoke of how dark his makeup was, so I told him to change makeup artists. Get him a reflector. I’ll do it myself. (I want to seem more radiant) Hyunsung isn’t ill or anything like that at all. My fan prepared this for me. What? Oh my! Radiant, milky-skinned Kim Hyunsung! So it’ll make you radiant? (Fan who helps him out) Wow! (Shocked) You see, I’m telling you this because I like you. Use a foundation that’s one shade lighter. I just want you to look good on TV, that’s all. The thing is, I spent more time on my makeup than my song this week. Wow. (Makeup takes precedence over song) This man lets his muscles do his singing. Oh, come on. (Who?) Please welcome KCM! (Sentimental ballad singer KCM) (He really is muscular) How have you been? Me? When this airs, my new album will be out. First time in six years. (KCM’s long-awaited album) Six years. My sixth album, which is the first in six years. And I hear you’ve got more good news. What? (More good news?!) – Are you getting married? / – Am I? – No, you have a concert? / – Oh, yes. Who told you he’s getting married? (Wants that for himself) I will have a concert in early December all by myself for the first time in six years. I’ve done concerts with him. He doesn’t just sing ballads. He starts off b-boying, since he’s a good dancer. (Does various things) And during the finale song, he rips his clothes off. (Ballad singer who rips his clothes off?) While singing a ballad song? Do you remember what song you ripped it off to? Just pretend to do it. ♪ You’ll want to see me ♪ (Man who rips his shirt off!) What perfect lyrics to rip your shirt off to! (I just rip it!) “You’ll want to see me, so I’ll show you.” – They love it. / – Amazing. I didn’t rip my shirt off during a concert once. And no joke, (Forgot to rip shirt off) I had older female fans who came up to me after and yelled at me asking why I didn’t, when that’s what they came to see. That’s what they came to see. I will select the first performance. Dongyeop is drawing the first ball. This singer is all about loyalty. Bada is all about loyalty. KCM? KCM? (Kim Bada?) But as loyal as she is, she’s fought with a close friend of hers over a guy before. She said her good (Loyalty to friend lost over a guy?) friend Tony Hong and her have such similar taste in men that she’s fought for a man’s affections against him. – It’s me? Oh no. / – You and him are close. Sentimental ballad singer Wax. (Number 1 – Wax) You’re back after a two-year break. My hands are sweaty. You and Tony fought over a guy? No, I didn’t do anything. But Tony made such a fuss (She didn’t do anything) trying to make a scene. I didn’t do a thing, though. The best ballad singer, who fits well with the cold fall and winter months. Let’s go, Wax! Let’s go! Let’s go! This is my first time going first. I’ve gone second a few times. This is nerve-racking. This duo debuted fourteen years ago, but this is their first time on our show. It’s Take. (Late bloomer duo Take) But Take has that famous song. – “Butterfly Grave.” / – Yeah, “Butterfly Grave.” – Yeah. / – Can we hear it? Nice. (“Butterfly Grave” by Take) ♪ You’ll continue to fade as time passes me by ♪ ♪ I can’t hold on any longer ♪ ♪ Forgive me for ♪ ♪ Letting you go ♪ (14 years of experience can be felt) I.O.I, do you remember this song? Yes, we know this song. Take, I look forward to your performance. Thank you. The very, very, very lovable and trendy girl group. Please welcome I.O.I! Yes, I love it! We’re I.O.I. Hello. How adorable! But… I have a small complaint regarding your introduction. I understand you adore I.O.I, but when you were introducing Take, you were like, it’s Take. (No enthusiasm) With I.O.I, you were like, (Red-headed stepchildren) “The very, very lovable.” And he said last time that he wanted to join I.O.I’s private chatroom. Who are you close with? (Oh no) Who are you close with? (GFRIEND from last week) We have (GFRIEND + I.O.I=GI Group Chat room) a chat room with I.O.I. You must really want to join that chat room. You said you like I.O.I and GFRIEND. – You saw that? / – Yes. They said you guys have a group chatroom. Would you mind inviting Jaehyeong to that chatroom? (Hoping and wishing) (Silence ensues…) (Don’t know what to say…) (Laughter points to “No”) They’re smiling, but they mean “No.” I quit! Today, I’ll be singing “Farewell Song,” written by poet Jeong Hoseung and sung by Lee Dongwon. It’s a song that’s heartrending and heartbreaking. The lyrics are unlike any song you hear nowadays, so it was easier for me to connect with this song. I really enjoyed preparing it. Han Sunchun, the modern dancer whom I worked with three years ago, will be joining me for the performance. With him, I feel more confident in my performance. When you see him dance, you’ll all fall for him. I will do my best and try to get a good score. (Jeong Hoseung’s poem “Farewell Song”) (Poem that used parting lovers as a metaphor to) (Reflect the feeling of parting with freedom) (During the military rule of the 80s) (Jeong Hoseung portrayed the sorrow of the people) (And the issues they faced through this sad song) (With sad, touching lyrics, and after 1990) (He was one of the top poets the people loved most) (“Farewell Song” / 1984) (Singer Lee Dongwon read) (Jeong Hoseung’s poem and was so moved that) (He asked a composer to write music to the lyrics) (Upon release, the song was a huge sensation) (Making the no-name singer Lee Dongwon) (A household name) The first performance is by Wax. (“Farewell Song” by Wax) ♪ Darling, you’re leaving ♪ ♪ If you would leave just a little later ♪ ♪ It won’t be too late for me to love you ♪ ♪ Even after you’ve left ♪ ♪ It’s not too late ♪ ♪ I will leave the place you left from before you do ♪ ♪ And become the sunset glow ♪ ♪ Shining on your back ♪ ♪ I’ll fasten my coat in the dark ♪ ♪ When the lights in all the homes go out ♪ ♪ For you ♪ ♪ I will become a star that sings ♪ ♪ Darling, you’re leaving ♪ ♪ If you would leave just a little later ♪ ♪ It won’t be too late for me to love you ♪ ♪ Even after you’ve left ♪ ♪ It’s not too late ♪ ♪ I will leave the place you left from ♪ ♪ Before you do ♪ ♪ And become the sunset glow ♪ ♪ Shining on your back ♪ ♪ I’ll fasten my coat in the dark ♪ ♪ When the lights in all the homes go out ♪ ♪ For you ♪ ♪ For you ♪ ♪ I will become a star that sings ♪ ♪ Darling, you’re leaving ♪ ♪ If you would leave just a little later ♪ ♪ It won’t be too late for me to love you ♪ ♪ Even after you’ve left ♪ (A deeply emotional performance that paralleled poetry) (“Farewell Song” by Wax) That was Wax. That’s Wax, alright. Wax. And the modern dancer is Han Sunchun. His choreography is very beautiful. They have synergy working together. They do. KCM, what did you think of Wax’s performance? Every since I was young, before my debut, I’ve been a huge fan of Wax’s songs. I even sang her song “Fix My Makeup” for an audition. We need to hear that song. It’ll do Hyunsung a lot of good. (Let’s hear it!) Use lighter foundation. He really wants to hear this. For foundation that’s one shade lighter. Please sing it for me. (Okay) (“Fix My Makeup” by Wax) ♪ I fix my makeup ♪ He felt that while putting dark makeup on. (Teasing) Hearing Wax sing and seeing Han Sunchun dance beside her made me think it was like a poem in and of itself. It was so wonderful. Wax conveyed the melody and lyrics while Sunchun carried out the rhythm. I will draw for the second performance. (Who will go second?) Good eating habits are very important. They say they aren’t picky about what they eat. And they like authentic Korean food more than most their age. Their average age is 19. The lovable girls, I.O.I. (Number 2 – I.O.I) It’s a girl group versus Wax. Going second isn’t so great, is it? Though we’re second, (Pressured) we’ll go up and enjoy it. We won’t go (Winning or losing doesn’t matter!) for a win and just enjoy performing. Going second (Feels like too much too much?) must make you nervous, right? Yes, which is all the more reason we’ll just have fun up there. We’ll just enjoy it (Unavoidable, so let’s enjoy it) whether we win or lose. Mina, what about you? I’m so nervous. (So adorable) How adorable! Please tell us how you plan to do. We’ll just have fun up there. Let’s go! (Off to have a good time! Go! Go!) Let’s go, I.O.I! Oh… (They’re talkative as they go) Can we change the order? What do we do? (Like they’re heading out on break) It’s like they’re going to the school store. You guys heading to the school store? Immortal Songs viewers. One, two, three! Yes, I love it! I.O.I. Hello. (Girls who put on a great show singing) (“It is Fire Play” on the Hong Seobeom special) (Topped charts with their new song “Very, Very, Very”) (Very, very, very fun-loving girl group, I.O.I) Today, we’ll be singing a song poet Jeong Jiwon wrote that An Chihwan sang called “People are More Beautiful than Flowers.” The title “People are More Beautiful than Flowers” denotes the feeling that people’s lives are beautiful. By singing this, we want to deliver a message to the listeners, telling them their lives are beautiful. It feels very touching to be able to sing it. As we’ve always mentioned, when the eleven of us come together, our energy is tremendous, and we hope to share some of that with you. We’ll do our best. – Let’s go! / – Let’s go! (Jeong Jiwon’s poem) (“People are More Beautiful than Flowers”) (Sung by protest song group Kkotdaji in 1996) (The concert organizer who sang a song containing) (Lyrics of reunification was arrested) (Afterwards, Jeong Jiwon saw) (A concert urging his release) (The poet wrote this poem about the people) (And the resistance movement with fluidity) (“People are More Beautiful than Flowers” / 1998) (First sung by Kkotdaji, a protest song group) (But it gained great popularity after) (An Chihwan released it as a rock song) (An Chihwan said the lyrics were so beautiful) (That it was easy to rearrange) The second performance is by I.O.I. (“People are More Beautiful than Flowers” by I.O.I) ♪ Those who hold inside themselves ♪ ♪ A song that’s like a river ♪ ♪ They find out, yes they find out ♪ ♪ Why at night, the dark mountains ♪ ♪ Dip into the rivers to dream ♪ ♪ Why as the night deepens, they caress the other ♪ ♪ Embrace and grow to love carefree ♪ Let’s go! ♪ Those who agonized in terrifying loneliness ♪ ♪ They find out, yes they find out ♪ ♪ They don’t let sadness get the better of them ♪ ♪ A love that doesn’t close up its blooming buds ♪ ♪ When hard times comes to sprout leaf by leaf ♪ ♪ Can then grow big to be a forest and a mountain ♪ ♪ And remain forever like an echo ♪ ♪ No matter what they say ♪ ♪ People are more beautiful than flowers ♪ ♪ Those who overcame all this loneliness ♪ ♪ Those people ♪ ♪ No matter what they say ♪ ♪ You are more beautiful than a flower ♪ ♪ You who lives with the warmth of the song inside ♪ ♪ You, it is you ♪ ♪ Us, it is us and our true love ♪ ♪ Even when you are behind grey clouds, hey ♪ ♪ You are more beautiful than flowers ♪ ♪ So you light up the darkness, uh ♪ ♪ And this is something we know though we do not say ♪ ♪ We don’t fly away like a butterfly ♪ ♪ And give up, no more ♪ ♪ Dream again, hey ♪ ♪ No matter what they say ♪ ♪ People are more beautiful than flowers ♪ ♪ Those who overcame all this loneliness ♪ ♪ Those people ♪ ♪ No matter what they say ♪ ♪ You are more beautiful than a flower ♪ ♪ You who lives with the warmth of the song inside ♪ ♪ You, it is you ♪ ♪ Us, it is us and our true love ♪ ♪ We are true love, come on now ♪ ♪ We are true love, oh yeah ♪ ♪ You, it is you, us, it is us ♪ ♪ You, it is you, us, it is us ♪ ♪ We are true love ♪ (Energetic song that cheers us on) (Sung by girls more beautiful than flowers) (“People are More Beautiful than Flowers” by I.O.I) (Older male fans are cheering loudly) They are amazing! You know what that felt like? You know how it’s fall now and leaves are falling? Amidst that, they were like the lone flowers in bloom. Or like a pine tree. I want this song to be released. I liked it that much. The song really went well with their style. Bada, what did you think of I.O.I’s performance? I was looking forward to seeing them the most. (Haha!) Why are you laughing? That was a good (Pretended he wasn’t a fan, but he is) arrangement and the most memorable part went like… (Melody is most memorable) Who will win? I.O.I. Really? KCM, what did you think? I couldn’t take my eyes off of I.O.I. No one can think of anything other than that. Why bother asking at all? I couldn’t take my eyes off them and they were great, but because Wax was my inspiration to become a singer since childhood, I’ll have to say I think Wax will win. The first and second performances are done now. We feel a buzz of nervous tension throughout, right? I wonder who will win. (Wax vs I.O.I) I.O.I’s “People are More Beautiful than Flowers.” Poet Jeong Jiwon wrote the lyrics and singer An Chihwan sang it, gaining a lot of love. And the lyrics to Wax’s “Farewell Song” were by the poet Jeong Hoseung and were sung by Lee Dongwon. Here is music critic Park Seongseo. From my memory, Lee Dongwon was a no-name singer but then he sang this song which made him become famous nationwide, right? Right, singer Lee Dongwon coincidentally stumbled on a poem Jeong Hoseung wrote in a woman’s magazine and felt moved, so he asked composer Choi Jonghyeok to write the song. Wax, I really enjoyed your performance. Thank you. (Wax’s version was beautiful) Alright. I hear you recently released a song called “You Are, You Are, You Are.” Right. Will you sing part of it for us? (“You Are, You Are, You Are” by Wax) ♪ Was I that awful? ♪ ♪ Why must I find myself here again ♪ ♪ Spending nights in tears? ♪ (Please give it lots of love) It’s a madhouse in here today thanks to I.O.I. Sejeong, you girls topped the charts on a music program recently, right? (Got first place on a music program!) What did you guys say to one another? That we’ll always cherish (Feelings on getting 1st) the moment we won and we want to thank everyone that we can end our run on such a good note. We’re always saying that. Thank you so much. I wonder how the audience voted. Please show us the results. (Checking results) (Plaintive singing by ballad singer Wax) (Popular girl group I.O.I) (Wax vs I.O.I) Han Sunchun and Wax’s ballad song performance for fall. Will Wax, returning after two years, take the win? (Sentimental singer Wax’s first win?) (Nice lyrics with refreshing performance) Or will I.O.I beat Wax? Who will win? (Who will the winner be?) (“Farewell Song” vs) (“People are More Beautiful than Flowers”) (Audience chose I.O.I with 356) I.O.I! You are amazing! Wow! (I.O.I finally gets their first win on the show) (Am I dreaming?) Oh my gosh… Our minds went blank. Our minds are still blank. It’s a shock that 365 people voted for us. I can’t believe this. Who should go up next? The next singer (Who’s third up?) will go up against I.O.I. If it’s Im Taekyung (Number 3 vs top girl group) or Kim Bada, then it’d be unfair for the girls. I think if Dongyeop does say their names, they’d run up there to see I.O.I onstage. (Happy fans) His voice goes well with days like these when cold winds blow. With comforting sounds, (So it’s Hyunsung?) he always melts our hearts. Immortal Songs’ prince, Im Taekyung. (Number 3 – Im Taekyung) Im Taekyung can’t wait to run up there. (My turn) You may become the older male fans’ number one enemy. This is bad news for I.O.I since Im Taekyung is so amazing. It’s Im Taekyung. But they say 365 isn’t a low score. Why do I have to go up against I.O.I? (Worried) I really hate Dongyeop. (Don’t blame me) Let’s go, Im Taekyung! (Immortal Songs’ prince is up!) It’s my first time meeting I.O.I. I don’t feel happy about this. (Go easy on I.O.I) We heard “People are More Beautiful than Flowers,” and you are at the age when you’re most beautiful. So can we hear what your ideal type of woman is? KCM, I’d like to know your ideal type of woman. What’s your ideal type? – I have an ideal in mind. / – Is it Wax? No. (Turned down immediately) If you’re going to give her respect, do it to the end. I’ve loved Ha Heera ever since elementary school. She came to my neighborhood for a meet and greet when I was in elementary school. And at the time, I thought she was so beautiful. KCM, what do you say? You can be on Immortal Songs with her one day. I would love that. Send her a message. That’d be great. You gave me your autograph with a big smile, telling me I was really adorable. That’s stayed with me for all my life. If you have the time to ever do a duet with me, I’ll be there in a heartbeat. – Really. / – Really. Ha Heera is a really good singer, I hear. Really? Who did you like? (Please do a duet with me) – I liked… / – Eom Aengran? Come on! (If you mean back then, of course) I saw Won Mikyeong in my senior year of high school and nearly fainted. (Surprised) – Why? / – Because she was so beautiful. Beautiful women you see when you’re young aren’t easy to forget. I liked Shin Aera. I got her autograph (Minsu’s ideal woman is Shin Aera) and years later I met her at (Saw her when he was young) my son’s field day, since her child attended it too. Wow. From fan to parents at field day. It was really new to me. The song I’ll be singing today is Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In The Wind.” The lyrics make up one of the best poems. “How long will it take for us to gain freedom?” This is the question that’ll stay with you. The Nobel Prize in literature for 2016 is awarded to Bob Dylan. (“Blowin’ In The Wind” / 1962) (American folk singer and poet Bob Dylan) (First time ever for pop singer to get Nobel Prize) (Lyrics he wrote about the skepticism) (Surrounding achieving peace and equality) (It used metaphors and symbolism) (Which made it a memorable song of the times) The third performance is by Im Taekyung. (“Blowin’ In The Wind” by Im Taekyung) ♪ How many roads must a man walk down ♪ ♪ Before you call him a man? ♪ ♪ How many seas must a white dove sail ♪ ♪ Before she sleeps in the sand? ♪ ♪ How many times must the cannonballs fly ♪ ♪ Before they’re forever banned? ♪ ♪ The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ The answer is blowin’ in the wind ♪ Three, four! ♪ How many years can a mountain exist ♪ ♪ Before it’s washed to the sea? ♪ ♪ How many years can some people exist ♪ ♪ Before they’re allowed to be free? ♪ ♪ How many times can a man turn his head ♪ ♪ And pretend that he just doesn’t see? ♪ ♪ The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ The answer is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ How many times must a man look up ♪ ♪ Before he can really see the sky? ♪ ♪ How many years must one man have ♪ ♪ Before he can hear people cry? ♪ ♪ How many deaths will it takes till he knows ♪ ♪ That too many people have died? ♪ ♪ The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ The answer is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ How many times must the cannonballs fly ♪ ♪ Before we can have true peace? ♪ ♪ How many years must pass by ♪ ♪ For us to really have true freedom? ♪ ♪ How many roads must a man walk down ♪ ♪ Before you call him a man? ♪ ♪ How many seas must a white dove sail ♪ ♪ Before she sleeps in the sand? ♪ ♪ How many times must the cannonballs fly ♪ ♪ Before they’re forever banned? ♪ ♪ The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ The answer is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ How many years can some people exist ♪ ♪ Before they’re allowed to be free? ♪ ♪ How many times can a man turn his head ♪ ♪ And pretend that he just doesn’t see? ♪ ♪ How many times must a man look up ♪ ♪ Before he really sees the sky? ♪ ♪ The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ The answer is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind ♪ ♪ The answer is blowin’ in the wind ♪ (Freedom, equality, peace) (Timeless hope for all worldwide) (“Blowin’ In The Wind” by Im Taekyung) (Undeniable to say he is the prince of Immortal Songs) That was Im Taekyung singing the song of this year’s Nobel Prize winner. Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In The Wind.” Bada, you’ll be singing a Bob Dylan song too today. What did you think? Seeing Taekyung’s performance today made me feel his sincerity. Really? During the second half of the song, he sang in that lighter tone. Right. He used that to evoke and carry on that emotion to the end and finished it off that way, and from that I could feel how sincere he was. It’s hard to convey the message of a song in another language on stage. I heard how hard the audience clapped and thought, “Taekyung has done it again.” (Im Taekyung vs I.O.I with 356) Im Taekyung’s “Blowin’ In The Wind.” This is a hit song of the first mainstream singer to win the Nobel Literature Prize, Bob Dylan. The song was released in 1962. At the time, there was a lot of dissident movement against racial inequalities. Bob Dylan was a figure that symbolized the movement and he was a big influence in the Korean folk music of the 70s. Usually, mainstream songs contained love lyrics, but folk songs are about life, they say. Hearing Im Taekyung’s song today, I felt he really sees reality clearly and expresses it perfectly too. That’s how I felt, so thank you. – Wow. / – Thank you. The crowd went wild for I.O.I. Was it the same in the green room? After Wax and I.O.I left, it was just us men who were left. It felt as if we were a bunch of soldiers in the barracks. I wonder how the audience voted. Show us the results. (Immortal Songs’ prince, Im Taekyung) (Immortal Songs’ new trend, I.O.I) (Im Taekyung vs I.O.I with 356) Popular girl group I.O.I versus their fan, Im Taekyung. Will I.O.I get a second with 356? (Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In The Wind”) (A song that reflected upon the times) (Will Im Taekyung win?) Will Taekyung beat I.O.I and take his first win? (Im Taekyung vs I.O.I with 356) (Will the adorable I.O.I win again?) (Immortal Songs’ prince win?) (Audience chose Im Taekyung with 416) 416! With 416, Taekyung stops I.O.I’s chance of a second win and takes the win. 416. We’re happy to have won even just once. We got all choked up. This will be in our records now. I will select the fourth performance. (Who will go up against Im Taekyung with 416?) This singer has fallen for something big time. He danced on our show for the first time. Kim Hyunsung! Kim Hyunsung! He has shown great desire to become a dance singer. The dancer whose skills match those of Jung Dongha and Shin Yongjae, Immortal Songs’ dancing machine, Kim Hyunsung. (Number 4 – Kim Hyunsung) (Dance-a-holic Kim Hyunsung) Hyunsung, will you be dancing today? Not at all. Thank goodness. The little prince of ballads! Let’s go, Kim Hyunsung! While preparing this, I’ve heard Taekyung sing. I really like him a lot, and I’ll get to be on the same stage with him. That in and of itself makes me happy. Han Sunchun, you’re a modern dance major. You danced for us onstage, but will you show us one more time? I’m actually a huge I.O.I fan. So you’ll do an I.O.I dance? Yoojung made this memorable face when she sang “BANG BANG BANG.” – You can do that? / – Really? Her face? One, two, three, four. (Carbon copy) (Most flexible) (Jaw-dropping!) Wait a minute. Yoojung flew and came down to do splits? You didn’t right? I don’t remember seeing that. I did it as a collaborative effort. Will you dance with him? (Han Sunchun & Choi Yoojung) (Great job) Thank you. It’s great seeing you again. I’m Kim Hyunsung. I heard it got good audience feedback. It was better than expected. I was worried because I came out and danced last week. I worried I might get haters, but everyone just wrote to praise me for my efforts, though not one person said I danced well. Today, I’ll be singing Song Changsik’s song “Blue Day,” which was written by the poet Seo Jeongju, It’s a sentimental song filled with mourning from the lyrics of the poem. I want to correctly delivery that emotion. (Seo Jeongju’s poem “Blue Day”) (Included in the 1948 poetry book) (By Seo Jeongju entitled “Cuckoo”) (The longing for someone one misses) (Is expressed without special rhetoric or technique) (Solely by rhythm of language and superb creativity) (“Blue Day” / 1983) (Song Changsik released the song in 1983) (With release of this song, he became popular) (Said to have raised the bar for artistic music) The fourth performance is by Kim Hyunsung. Hello. (“Blue Day” by Kim Hyunsung) ♪ On a glaringly blue day ♪ ♪ Let me miss my beloved ♪ ♪ Over there, where flowers once were in the fall ♪ ♪ The leaves have grown tired of being green ♪ ♪ And are changing to fall colors ♪ ♪ What will they do when it snows? ♪ ♪ And what will they do when spring comes? ♪ ♪ What if I die and you live? ♪ ♪ What if you die and I live? ♪ ♪ On a glaringly blue day ♪ ♪ Let me miss my beloved ♪ ♪ Over there, where flowers once were ♪ ♪ The leaves have grown tired of being green ♪ ♪ And are changing to fall colors ♪ Everyone, put a hand up! ♪ What will they do when it snows? ♪ ♪ And what will they do when spring comes? ♪ ♪ What if I die and you live? ♪ ♪ What if you die and I live? ♪ ♪ On a glaringly ♪ ♪ (On a glaringly blue day) ♪ ♪ (Let me miss) my beloved ♪ ♪ Over there ♪ ♪ (Where flowers once were) in the fall ♪ ♪ The leaves have grown tired of being green ♪ ♪ And are changing to fall colors ♪ (Shouting out to his beloved, whom he misses) (“Blue Day” by Kim Hyunsung) Thank you. That was Hyunsung with “Blue Day” which was Song Changsik’s song. Hyunsung has a very distinct tone. He looks like the Little Prince. He’s slender with more delicate features, but with the Little Prince sentiment, there’s also a masculine feel to him. His singing is very smooth. But rough too. He threw me off guard with the hand-raising part. I was shocked. So he will win? Can he beat Taekyung? But I’m a huge fan of Taekyung. So you think Taekyung will win? I’m a fan of Taekyung, so… She’s growing quieter. So you think Taekyung will win? (Just say it) (I can’t) Stop giving her a hard time! What about you, Mina? (Can’t decide!) He seemed very quiet here. But out there, he was like… So I was shocked. It was unexpected. I was more shocked by you just singing that. (Im Taekyung with 416 vs Kim Hyunsung) Hyunsung’s song “Blue Day” was such a beautiful song, and it won an award. It won the grand prize in 1983 at the KBS Awards for its lyrics. One of Korea’s top singer-songwriters, Song Changsik, sang that song. Critics praised him for raising the bar for Korean music. With Kim Hyunsung’s voice adding to it, this song felt more real. Today’s theme is singing songs of poets. Hyunsung heard Taekyung sing “Blue Day” before on another episode. I’d be lying if I didn’t think about it at all, but he sang it powerfully like a pop opera in a very romantic style. I wanted to try singing it in my own way. The song changes a lot depending on who sings it. I wonder who the audience chose. Let’s see how the audience voted. (Checking results) (“Blowin’ In The Wind” by Im Taekyung) (“Blue Day” by Kim Hyunsung) (Im Taekyung with 416 vs Kim Hyunsung) Immortal Songs’ two princes are up for battle. Will Taekyung get a second win with 416? Or will the high-pitched voice of Hyunsung that filled the stage beat Taekyung and take the win? Who will win? (Who did the audience choose?) (Audience chose Im Taekyung with 416) 416! Great job. Congratulations once again. With 416, Im Taekyung gets his second win. I will now select the fifth performance. (He must be having a hard time) Is it just me or has Bada aged a bit since the start of the show? Everyone says that. (Not just him) (The remaining singers all look gaunt) Who will he choose for the fifth performance? (Strange smile) This is when I feel most proud because I can prevent my lovable friend from aging. (Oh no) I’ll keep him from aging any more than he already has. The charismatic rocker Kim Bada. (Number 5 – Kim Bada) (Keeping his youth and heading to the stage!) Tell us what you plan to do. I will try my best. (Short and to the point!) Best rocker, Kim Bada! Let’s go! (Maestro of rock is on his way) I.O.I’s new song was recently released. Can we hear a bit of “Very, Very, Very”? Right here? (We want to see “Very, Very, Very”) Let’s hear “Very, Very, Very.” “Very, Very, Very.” (Excited) (Addictive lyrics and melody) (Moves that guys love) (Girls that we can’t get out of our heads) ♪ Call me when you can’t stop thinking about me ♪ (Men are smiling ear to ear) I hear you prepared a special impression for us? We’ll each (I.O.I’s special act time!) impersonate an animal. – You’ll show us that? / – Yes. Okay. (I.O.I of the Animal Kingdom) (There are many animals in) (The I.O.I Animal Kingdom) (Doyeon, who is a long-legged ostrich) (Somi, who is a giraffe eating a meal) (Not a still screen but Nayoung the sloth) (Sohye the owl predator and Chungha the hamster prey) (And the highlight of them all!) (Yoojung the orangutan!) (So this is paradise!) Great! That was a lot of fun, girls. – What were you, Kyeolkyeong? / – A pterodactyl. Pterodactyl? (Pterodactyl? Looked like a bird) She got it spot on. Yoojung was screaming up a storm, but Sohye was like this. (Complete opposites) (Unexpected act makes us love I.O.I even more) I’ll sing Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.” He is a musician that has consoled a lot of people and he’s someone I’ve always respected. He was not only a good musician but he also did his part to speak up against societal wrongs. We dream of a heaven when we are able to forget about the turbulent times of current affairs. So I thought why not dream of heaven for a bit? Let’s escape briefly. I hope you really enjoy this performance. (“Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” / 1973) (Song from the soundtrack of the 1973 Bob Dylan movie) (“Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid”) (Reflects the sentiments of the dying soldiers) (Of the Vietnam War) (Top song expressing the anti-war sentiments) (Of the people during the time with poetic lyrics) (And repetition which delivers a strong message) (Right after it’s release, it became a huge hit) (For years, it’s been included in 30 movie soundtracks) (Singers all over the world have remade this song) The fifth performance is by Kim Bada. (With a guitar which is perfect for today’s program!) Turn the dry ice on please. (Even asks for the special effects so coolly!)

(A warm echo that draws you to heaven) (“Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Kim Bada) (A ladder to the heavens is love for mankind) (Unique voice that makes one gasp in awe) (How amazing) He is indeed Kim Bada. Bada has a raw, primeval aura about him which you can’t even describe in words. But isn’t it only right that one would open the door – for him if he knocked like that? / – Certainly. Someone should let him know it’s occupied. Somi, have you heard this song because of your dad? I was introduced to this song by my dad. He said he had a song that I had to listen to. After I heard it, I liked the original, and the Avril Lavigne cover of it is also famous. but he even sang it with such passion. It was awesome. (Passionate shouting won her over) Sejeong looked surprised throughout the song too. When Taekyung was singing, (Looked very shocked) I felt like a yellow beam of light from the heavens was cast upon him. But this time with Bada, it felt like he was being drawn upwards. That’s what his voice is like. But at the same time, (Shouting that is very guttural) he’s very calm. (She’s completely hooked) I had chills all over, so I was like this. And when he was like “Hey,” we were like “Wow!” The energy was just… (Cheering reflexively) (Pitter-patter) (Fallen for Bada’s seductive singing) The energy was just… – So that’s what it was like. / – Yes. I understand. He’s very masculine. Who’ll win, Sejeong? (Taekyung vs Kim Bada) The moment I felt him being pulled up, I figured he’d win no matter what. (Which heaven song will it be?) (Im Taekyung with 416 vs Kim Bada) What did you think this time? This song’s been in 30 different movie soundtracks and numerous singers did remakes of it. It’s a world-famous song that always has surprises. Hearing Bada’s version of this song made me feel like I was watching yet another celebrated movie, one called Immortal Songs. – I enjoyed it. / – Thank you. Did you worry that both of you would be singing Bob Dylan songs? I wasn’t worried, but being here (How’d you feel?) side by side like this linked by the common denominator of Bob Dylan is actually inspiring. What did you think of Bada? I’ve always admired Bada (Taekyung’s thoughts?) and he sings in a style totally different than mine, so I respect him for qualities he has which I lack. Your version of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” was great. Thank you. (Deeply touched) I wonder how the audience voted. Show us the results. (Checking results) (Im Taekyung with 416 vs Kim Bada) (“Blowin’ In The Wind” by Bob Dylan) (Very touching song that tugged at heartstrings) Will Taekyung get a third win with 416? (“Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan) (Knocking of seductive singing) Will Bada beat Taekyung? Who will win? (Who will be the winner?) (Competition of Bob Dylan masterpieces) (Audience chose Kim Bada with 422) Kim Bada with 422. By a mere six votes, Kim Bada beats Im Taekyung and takes his first win. Congratulations! (Heaven blesses Kim Bada with a win!) Please give them a round of applause. Thank you. (Two musicians who put on a great show!) I will now draw for the sixth and seventh performances. We have Take and KCM left now. And the points went up again. They are a group that is a constant. They’re as handsome as ever, sing as well as ever, and their passion for music has been unwavering for about nine years now. They’ve returned after a nine-year break. Take. (Number 6 – Take) Tell us what you have planned for us. We waited a long time for this. I don’t know if we’re ready. (Flustered) I’ve been sitting here having so much fun, and now, having to go up to sing, I actually don’t even feel nervous. I don’t know if we’ll do well. It’s been so fun, especially the animal kingdom bit. (Best for calming nerves) Tell us what you have planned. We’ll work hard. They’re making a comeback on Immortal Songs after a nine-year break. Let’s go, Take! Thank you. Let’s go! Let’s go! Hello. We’re Take. (Debuted with “Baby Baby” in 2003) (Later became a four-member a capella group) (“Butterfly Grave” was one of their most famous songs) (Take is now back as a duet group) (Jang Sungjae / Shin Seunghui) We took a long break. It was really long. But we’re back after nine years. It’s been a really long time since we’ve been on TV. This is a happy moment for us. It’s probably the happiest moment all year. We’ve prepared to sing Jeong Jiyong’s poem “Homesick,” which has an added melody. We hope you remember your hometown while listening. We promise to move you. – Let’s go! / – Let’s go! (Jeong Jiyong’s poem “Homesick”) (Poem in the Joseonjigwang Magazine Vol. 65 in 1927) (In 1935, the poem was published in) (Jeong Jiyong’s collection of poetry) (Poem tells of homesickness in the turbulent times) (During the Japanese occupation of Korea) (Jeong’s masterpiece depicting) (Homesickness, sorrow, and sense of loss) (“Homesick” / 1989) (In 1989, Kim Heegap composed the music) (Tenor Park Insu and popular singer Lee Dongwon) (Sang it as a duet, popularizing it) (Gained attention as it was) (The first time an opera singer) (Recorded a song for mainstream music) The sixth performance is by Take. (Let’s go, Take!) (They’ve returned with wings they’d put away briefly) (We’re here to fly once more) (“Homesick” by Take) ♪ I couldn’t forget that place ♪ ♪ Not even in my dreams ♪ ♪ To the east of the great field’s end ♪ ♪ Lies a brook bubbling ♪ ♪ Of tales of old ♪ ♪ A spotted ox ♪ ♪ Moos in the fading, golden sunlight ♪ ♪ I couldn’t forget that place ♪ ♪ Not even in my dreams ♪ ♪ When the embers die in the brazier ♪ ♪ We raced horses in the empty fields ♪ ♪ Against night winds ♪ ♪ My aged father drunk from sleep ♪ ♪ Would place the pillow comfortably beneath him ♪ ♪ I couldn’t forget that place ♪ ♪ Not even in my dreams ♪ ♪ To find the arrow I carelessly shot ♪ ♪ I’d search the wet grass laden with dew ♪ ♪ I couldn’t forget it ♪ ♪ Not even in my dreams ♪ ♪ My younger sister ♪ ♪ Whose short black hair dances ♪ ♪ In the night like the waves of the legendary sea ♪ ♪ Where my wife who’s plain-faced ♪ ♪ Walked about bare-footed all four seasons ♪ ♪ Picking grain with the hot sun upon her back ♪ ♪ I couldn’t forget that place ♪ ♪ Not even in my dreams ♪ ♪ Stars spread sparsely in the night sky ♪ ♪ We head to a nameless sand castle ♪ ♪ Crows that come with frost cry over our shabby roof ♪ ♪ A place where we’d talk endlessly ♪ ♪ I couldn’t forget that place ♪ ♪ I couldn’t forget that place ♪ ♪ My younger sister ♪ ♪ Whose short black hair dances ♪ ♪ In the night like the waves of the legendary sea ♪ ♪ Where my wife who’s plain-faced ♪ ♪ Walked about bare-footed all four seasons ♪ ♪ Picking grain with the hot sun upon her back ♪ ♪ I couldn’t forget that place ♪ ♪ Not even in my dreams ♪ ♪ Memories of those times, those days ♪ ♪ That place ♪ (Longing that becomes palpable with closed eyes) (“Homesick” by Take) (Addicted to their sentimental style) Take. I almost cried in the middle. (Hosts very touched) I tentatively predict that they may be the new Immortal Songs’ rookies. They really sang the song with desperate longing. I watched the whole performance from start to finish without a single word. That means they sang it that well. Will they win? The votes are really high, but the audience tends to vote for singers who are sincere, – so they have a chance. / – They have a chance. And right now, KCM must be the most nervous. What did you think of Take? They tugged at my heartstrings and they continued to tug till the very last note, and for such a finish, I’d like to applaud them. Do you think there’s a chance of winning? I will do my best to perform what I’ve prepared. No, not you, KCM. (Got you!) Stop making this about you, okay? (Take vs Kim Bada with 422) Take sang “Homesick” and it was a song that got a lot of love. It’s still loved. This poem was published in 1927 in the magazine Joseonjigwang. The poem expresses with imagery the sorrow of having one’s hometown stripped from you during the time period of the Japanese occupation. Tenor Park Insu and mainstream singer Lee Dongwon did a duet of this song. It was the first time an opera singer sang a mainstream song, so it got a lot of attention. It was also a very popular song. Take, it’s been a long time since you performed, but your voices and tones are still the same. It’s great to see that you’re back. Thank you. Take debuted in 2003 as a five-member group all of a sudden, 14 years have passed. How did it feel to be onstage as a duet after all that time? I bet you two were very nervous when you started. Yes, we were extremely nervous, but despite that, everyone clapped for us, which is why we were able to finish well. Thank you. (We’ll continue to cheer you on) Take, I’m sure you have fans that miss you. I hear you’re coming back with a new song? Yes. It’s already been released. The song is called “LOST.” We’d be grateful if you all listened to it. Now it’s time to see how the audience voted. Let’s check the results. Please show us how they voted. (Checking results) (Take vs Kim Bada with 422) (“Homesick” by Jeong Jiyong) (“Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan) (Musical poet who plays the guitar) The man who seduced everyone with his charms. Or will Kim Bada get a second win with 422? (Very appealing singing with sentimental depth) Will Take, who’s back after a nine-year break, take their first win? (Audience chose Kim Bada with 422) Kim Bada with 422! (Light of victory is cast on Kim Bada!) Kim Bada gets his second win with 422. (Congratulations) KCM will be the final act of the poet special. And he’ll go up against Kim Bada. Tell us what you have planned. I’m grateful to be here and I’ve prepared hard for it, so I’ll do my best to put on a good show. Thank you. KCM, who hasn’t been here in a while, will be the final act. How will he make us feel? Let’s go, KCM! Let’s go I’m KCM. It’s great to see you. (During the Yang Sookyung special, KCM got) (Three straight wins with a heartrending performance) (KCM now returns with his sixth album) (What does he have planned?) I will be singing “Azalea.” The poem was written by Kim Sowol and Maya sang the song. The line “If you’re leaving because seeing me makes you sick, I will let you go without a word of dissent.” That line was such a shock to me when I was in elementary school. But every Korean knows that line. I wanted to express that line most powerfully. (Kim Sowol’s poem “Azaleas”) (Published in the Gaebyeok magazine in 1922) (Published in Kim Sowol’s book of poetry in 1925) (Deemed monumental work of lyrical poetry of Korea) (Poem contains sentiments of loss and pain) (From the Japanese occupation and Korean War) (It is considered the most loved poem of Koreans) (“Azaleas” / 2003) (Maya’s song contains lines from Kim Sowol’s poem) (Her restrained singing of pain of a lover leaving) (And her powerful vocal skills made it very popular) The seventh performance is by KCM. (“Azaleas” by KCM) ♪ If you’re leaving because ♪ ♪ Seeing me makes you sick ♪ ♪ I will let you go without a fuss ♪ ♪ If you’re leaving because ♪ ♪ Seeing me makes you sick ♪ ♪ I will not cry a single tear, even if it kills me ♪ ♪ Are you happy now that you’ve left me? ♪ ♪ Are you sure you’re not the one anymore? ♪ ♪ My world revolved around you ♪ ♪ Is my love shadowed by his now? ♪ ♪ Love hurts so much ♪ ♪ I can’t even breathe ♪ ♪ I will wish for your happiness ♪ ♪ I will pray for you with all my soul ♪ ♪ If you’re leaving because ♪ ♪ Seeing me makes you sick ♪ ♪ I will not cry a single tear, even if it kills me ♪ ♪ I will gather armfuls of azaleas from Yaksan ♪ ♪ In Yeongbyeon to spread on your path as you go ♪ ♪ Tread lightly on those flowers ♪ ♪ Which I’ve spread along your path ♪ ♪ If you’re leaving because ♪ ♪ Seeing me makes you sick ♪ ♪ I will not cry a single tear, even if it kills me ♪ ♪ When I leave ♪ ♪ (When I leave) ♪ ♪ And become the wind ♪ ♪ (And become the wind) ♪ ♪ To call you back to me ♪ ♪ By then (By then) ♪ ♪ By then (By then) ♪ ♪ You will probably be in love with him ♪ ♪ (If you’re leaving because) ♪ ♪ (Seeing me makes you sick) ♪ ♪ (I will let you go without a fuss) ♪ ♪ (I will gather armfuls of azaleas from Yaksan) ♪ ♪ (In Yeongbyeon to spread on your path as you go) ♪ ♪ If you’re leaving because ♪ ♪ Seeing me makes you sick ♪ ♪ I will let you go without a fuss ♪ ♪ If you’re leaving because ♪ ♪ Seeing me makes you sick ♪ ♪ I will let you go without a fuss ♪ ♪ I will gather armfuls of azaleas from Yaksan ♪ ♪ In Yeongbyeon to spread on your path as you go ♪ ♪ Tread lightly on those flowers ♪ ♪ Which I’ve spread along your path ♪ ♪ I’ll spread azaleas on your path as you go ♪ ♪ If you’re leaving because ♪ ♪ Seeing me makes you sick ♪ ♪ I will not cry a single tear, even if it kills me ♪ ♪ If you’re leaving because ♪ ♪ Seeing me makes you sick ♪ ♪ I will not cry a single tear, even if it kills me ♪ ♪ I will not cry a single tear, even if it kills me ♪ ♪ I will not cry a single tear, even if it kills me ♪ (Voice that makes your soul weep) (“Azaleas” by KCM) Wow. (Ardent desperation felt even in the green room) That’s an all-time best. What did you think? Chungha, why are you crying? Your eyes are all watery. I just got so into it. – Into the song. / – Yes. KCM is a really unique singer. He’s so meticulous and detailed, yet still so powerful. KCM is the only singer of that kind in Korea. I just heard about how Minsu nearly fainted singing “Destiny.” It was all over the papers. (Minsu sang “Destiny”) (During Lee Sunhee special) (Singing very high-pitched) (Loses balance and stumbles) I just heard KCM almost fainted singing this song. (Singing endless high note without breathing) (Eyes lose focus for a moment) (Stumble) What do you think? He put his all into the song. He gave his all, so it’s probably hard for him to even stand up right now. But that day I almost fainted, I didn’t win. But the song topped the Immortal Songs weekly chart. It was called “Destiny.” For two years? (So innocent) That’d make him a god. If he did that. Oh. That would’ve been nice. (Feels good just imagining it) (KCM vs Kim Bada with 422) Was I the only one to see how he almost fainted? I must’ve been very nervous. I was holding that note (Worried) and I nearly fainted. I lost my memory for like two seconds. It’s never happened before. I really gave my all. (Never happened before) Bada, have you done that before? To be honest, I was a bit dizzy earlier too. Wait a minute. (That sounds suspicious) KCM got applause for saying he almost fainted, so that’s why Bada said that. No, it’s not that. But I did feel kinship. I just want to ask one thing. I really don’t remember the last part of the song. Did I finish the song? – Yes. / – Thank you. I really can’t recall. You don’t remember all the cussing you did? (Hahaha) We’ll be sure to edit that part out. (Playing it cool) Yes, please edit that out. Immortal Songs, singing the songs of legends. Singing the songs of poets. Now, we only have the final results left. Will Kim Bada, who has two wins, get a third win and take home the trophy? Or will KCM’s last performance take the dramatic win for the trophy? Please show us how the audience voted. (KCM vs Kim Bada with 422) (Will seductive rocker Kim Bada) (Get a third win with 422?) Singing the songs of poets. The final match. Will Kim Bada get a third win and take home the trophy? (Unrivaled voice that’s full of longing) (Powerful, sentimental singer KCM) Will KCM’s unique rendition of “Azaleas” beat Bada to take home the trophy? Who will win? (Who did the audience choose?) (KCM vs Kim Bada with 422) (Next week) We’re the Park siblings. I’m Park Suhong. I’m Park Kyunglim. (Park Siblings) Hello. I’m Lee Yeongha. (Lovely middle-aged men) I’m tenor Ryu Jeongpil. I’m Taeseong’s friend Hyeonmin. (Handsome actors) I’m Hyeonmin’s friend, Taeseong. On today’s Immortal Songs, we will share precious moments singing with friends. With my friend, who brings me happiness! Let’s officially begin. (Park Suhong & Park Kyunglim) (Lee Yeongha & Ryu Jeongpil) (Kim Jeonghoon & Uji) (Lee Yuri & Ahn Yoojin & Jeong Sangyun) (Lee Taeseong & Yun Hyeonmin) (Bang Junghyeon & Han Sooyeon) Who knew his glory days would be at clubs? We saw each other at a club. It’s the in thing these days. (Performance with friends of 25 years) (Performance of fan and singer) (And their moving performance) We’re both actors now and are heading toward the same goals. We will do our best so that we may bring you a bit of hope. (My precious friend who I chase dreams with) (We root for their friendship against all odds!) Let’s go! (With My Friend, who Brings me Happiness!) (Audience chose KCM with 439) KCM with 439! Congratulations. With 439, this week’s trophy for singing songs of poets goes to KCM. Congratulations. KCM takes home the trophy with 439! Congratulations! (Singing the Songs of Poets) (“Next Station” by NC.A)

  1. i clicked cause of IOI but then i stayed for… also IOI cuz idc for anyone else!!

  2. Kim Bada never fails to impress me with his performances on Immortal Songs. I love that kind of rock song he did here – I remember listening to that kind of music in 2006-2012 when that genre was really popular in Canada. KCM did well too! His performance especially bringing in that many people was fitting for an ending song. I gasped out loud when I saw him stumble. I'm glad he didn't fall and hurt himself. IOI and TAKE had great performances too!

  3. I love KCM! Wow what a voice. Just bought KCM newest album Reflection of My Mind today on iTUNES LOVE, love

  4. First I'd like to thank KBS for uploading even if it was a little late. Great job! Second, there is a special place in hell for anyone who puts an ad with sound in the middle of a song. I'm Taekyung blew me away. Bada is awesome as always. I won't compare IOi's version of "people are like flowers" to Ali's. That would just be rude. ; )

  5. Loved Im Taekyungs performance and song cover! <3 I knew he'd get over 400 points even if he was 3rd up ^_^ Happy fan girl here kekeke
    Take was amazing as well – I was hoping they would have beat Bada – either way I'm going to be looking them up and finding all the music I can on them ^^

    and KCM!!! Excellent! I knew he'd win! He drew you into the song with the very first word! and he's tied now with Dongha's highest score! 😀

  6. ugh I'm tired of them picking on Kim hyunsung like he looks fine the way he is and I'm sure he would look weird paler. I know it's culture but goodness not everyone gotta be pale

  7. just finished watching this…I watched because of I.O.I and I'm proud of them because they did really good and it's their 2nd time in this show..thanks KBS for inviting them again…but WOW to KCM…i liked his performance the most and he won(surely he gave his all, he almost fainted on stage)…just WOW!

  8. YEONJUNG IS SO GODDESS
    XD SHES KUTE WHEN FANGIRLING AND MINA

  9. sigh… IOI I miss you girls! They never disappoint… they sing very well, they dance very good, they got so much charm, they are so funny, they are so talented, they are oozing with positive mindset which is very good for the youth, they are really 'The Dream Girls'

  10. Back here after 9 months. OMG, the dancer Han Seoncheon performing with WAX is divine! Where is he now? KBS /IMS2 please invite him back on to the show. He is a brilliant dancer 😍👏😍👏😍👏 I'll be visiting Korea next year. Can anyone tell me if there is a chance I can catch one of his performance? 🙇🙇🙇

  11. Taekying's performance was really nice, deserved to go final the least tbh, I like bada but this song just didn't have much in it so KCM deserved the win 100%
    Also Mina is the cutest c:

  12. IOI is one of the only full groups I've ever seen win a round on Immortal Song!!
