Mary Stayed Out All Night (Marry Me, Mary!) continues to confound me. I was supposed to be watching a certain drama last night (it was no chore, this drama is well on its way to being crowned my best drama of 2010), but I got sidetracked by, what else, M3. Sigh, I am hopeless. I guess my addiction is your reward, because I come bearing the fruits of my labor – answers about the new song which debuted in episode 7.
During a scene early in the episode 7, when Mu Gyul is back at his place and mixing a track for the drama OST, he starts to think about his Merry Christmas. The song that plays during this scene is new and is not part of released OST Part I. Clearly it will be included in the Part II release of the OST. No one knows the name of the song as of yet. Below I have translated the lyrics for you. It’s a doozy – this song clearly articulates Mu Gyul’s real feelings towards Mae Ri.
Lyrics for new song in episode 7:
I feel like (her) falling in love with me was like a misunderstanding
I am not the type of (good) man you think I am
She is that vibrant of a woman
Unsuited to be with a man like me
She is such a wonderful woman
That woman of mine, she loves me so deeply
That woman of mine, she tells me that I am the world’s best man
Having lived a life of sorrow and struggle
We (now) love and protect each other
I sometimes dislike the me who is not worthy of you
When I make the kind and gentle her cry, I end up crying myself
Holding tightly to each other’s hand, taking a deep breath
Just want to live (my) entire life like this. Oh.
I love her so very much
Compared to myself, I pray for her happiness.
When I look at her I am happy
I will sacrifice my life to love her, this I do swear.
While “Take Care, My Bus” was goofy and random, “Superstar” was cute and bubbly, “My Precious” has been alluded to being a song about Mu Gyul’s precious hair, and “Tell Me Your Love” was a soaring and positive love song – this new ballad is melancholy and introspective. Wahhh, they just want me to cry, don’t they? I’m such a sucker for these things. Let me put it this way, this song explains Mu Gyul’s feelings more than that boy is even aware of at this time. It’s like a giant neon spoiler sign. Jung In, baby, sorry, but you should’ve taken an earlier flight back from Japan.
