One of my favourite Korean artiste, BoA, recently made a comeback and released her 7th album, titled Only One! Now, I say first - I'm not very into this whole K Wave thing, so when I say it's good and I like it, I really mean it.

The song "Only One" is written and composed by BoA herself; it contains her "more matured and musical sensitivity and various types of music", as stated on the description of her YouTube videos. It is expected to draw the attention of music fans - *points* you, you and you included!

There are 2 versions of the Music Video - the Dance version and the Drama version. The videos got viewed almost 3 million times in less than 1 week, and is the #1 Popular Music Video in Singapore. I can see why!



Which version is your favourite?

Personally, I prefer her dance version! I've always been a sucker for her dances, especially when I first appreciated her yearsssssss ago. Her dance moves are slick and strong, she's definitely the Best of Asia (pun intended. BoA, get it? Lololol)!

But of course, her drama version is more appropriate for the song.

With such a pretty face, beautiful voice and awesome dance moves, it's no wonder she got me addicted again and again.

For people who are not fluent in the Korean language (it sounds like really nice sounding jibberish to me, hahaha!), here's the English translation of the song. Credits to: http://www.kpoplyrics.net/boa-only-one-lyrics-english-romanized.html#ixzz21hKQMFg0 

You’re only getting farther – you’re the only one
As much as I loved you, you’re the only one
It hurts and hurts and it’s foolish but good bye
Though I may never see you again, you’re the only one
Only one

We awkwardly sit across each other,
Making small talk and asking what’s new
The moments when the conversation stop for a moment
The cold silence freezes us

We will become strangers at this place right now
Someone will shed tears and be left alone but
I hate seeing you try not to scar me and feel ill at ease
So I’ll let you go

My love, good bye now – you’re the only one (you’re the only one)
Even at the moment we break up, you’re the only one
It hurts and hurts and it’s foolish but good bye
Though I may never see you again, you’re the only one

Only One
You’re the only one, Only One

At my sudden works, you seem to be relieved for some reason
Where did we go wrong?
Did we hope for different places starting from long ago?

The sharpness of the vast difference of our start and end
And the pain that stabs my heart – why is it so similar?
My overwhelmed heart crumbles emptily in just one moment
How can I stand up again?

My love, good bye now – you’re the only one (you’re the only one)
Even at the moment we break up, you’re the only one
It hurts and hurts and it’s foolish but good bye
Though I may never see you again, you’re the only one

When will my head erase you? (I will let you go)
One day, two days, one month, if long term then a few years (My baby can’t forget)
And someday in your memories,
I won’t live in it, you will erase me

Only One Only One
You’re the only one, Only One
