Learn Korean with Chani SF9: Starlight Lyrics from True Beauty Soundtrack

True Beauty drama releases the fifth soundtrack featuring Chani SF9 entitled Starlight along with its lyrics. Chani’s voice perfectly suits for this ballad song. Chani also appears as a cameo in True Beauty drama. He plays as an idol, Seyeon, late friend of Suho (Cha Eun Woo) and Seojun (Hwang In Yeop). Starlight, which is the first soundtrack for Chani SF9, delivers the emotional lyrics. In general, it tells about someone who really misses a friend. However, this feeling is unreachable since that friend has passed away. So, in this poetic lyrics, this feeling is symbolized in “star” which is way too far to reach and can only be stared from far. This song also appears in drama, particularly in romantic scene of Suho and Jukyung (Moon Ga Young). When they sit on a wooden boat to spend the night on a lake, Suho plays this song.

If we see the whole lyrics, we can feel the poetic sense. Like a poetry, it contains some symbols as found in line 별이 되어 사라질까 봐 (Byeori dweeo sarajilkka bwa). 별 (Byeol) means star. It represents someone whom we miss so badly and we couldn’t reach them since they are way too far like a star. 되어 (Dweeo) is from basic form 되다 (dweda) that means “to become or turn”. 별이 되어 (Byeori dweeo) means “become a star”. 사라질까 봐 (Sarajilkka bwa) derives from 사라지다 (sarajida) which means “disappear” followed by particle -ㄹ까 봐 to indicate a feeling of fear or afraid. So the whole meaning of 별이 되어 사라질까 봐 (Byeori dweeo sarajilkka bwa) is “I am afraid you will become a star and disappear”.

그리움 (Geurium) is found in line 빛나던 네가 더 그리워져서 (Bitnadeon nega deo geuriwojyeoseo). 빛나던 (Bitnadeon) is adjective phrase that derives from 빛나다 (bitnada) which means “shining or sparkling”. 네가 (Nega) means you. 빛나던 네가 literally means “shining you”. Or, it implies that it is you who shined. 더 (Deo) is an adverb for “more or again”. 그리워져서 (Geuriwojyeoseo) derives from 그립다 (geuribda) which means “miss or long for”. So, 빛나던 네가 더 그리워져서 (Bitnadeon nega deo geuriwojyeoseo) means “I miss you more who shined” or “I long for you who shined”.

3. Metaphor in the Lyrics

As you can see, Chani SF9’s Starlight lyrics sounds emotional but poetic. It uses beautiful representation and metaphor. Let’s put an example of metaphor in the first line 보랏빛으로 물든 하늘 (Boratbicheuro muldeun haneul). 보랏빛 (Boratbit) means violet added by particle -으로 to indicate the way or method to do something. It mean “with/ in….”. So 보랏빛으로 (Boratbicheuro) means “in purple”. 물든 (Muldeun) is adjective phrase from 물들다 (muldeulda) which means “to be colored”. 하늘 (Haneul) means sky. Literally, 보랏빛으로 물든 하늘 (Boratbicheuro muldeun haneul) means “The sky is colored in violet”. The color of violet may have multiple interpretations. Scientifically, violet sky is a sign of bad weather like there is gonna be storm and thunder. It could symbolize the unfortunate life of someone. Life could be symbolized in sky. Seeing the lyrics which generally tells about longing for someone who passed away, probably he/she is in difficult situation. They might be upset to their late friend whom they miss.
