This term derives from two phrases: 지키다 (jikida) and주다 (juda). 지키다 (jikida) means to protect, take care of, look after, guard, and defend. Meanwhile 주다 (juda) means to give something to somebody. In this context, this term means to protect. We find this term in line 지켜주지도 못했지 너란 꽃 (Jikyeojujido mothaetji neoran kkot). This line could be translated to “Couldn’t even protect a flower like you”. It implies that he is upset after break up with his girlfriend. He thinks that the reason they break up is that he couldn’t even protect or take care of his precious one. He is blaming himself as he is not able to keep their relationship.

2. 소중함을

This is an adjective phrase of 소중하다 (sojunghada). 소중하다 (sojunghada) means precious or priceless. We find this term in line 소중함을 알게 될까 (Sojunghameul alge dwelkka). This line means “I learn how precious you were”. It implies his regret after breaking up with his girlfriend. He realizes how precious she is even if they are already apart. She is as precious as flower. Flower is a symbol her preciousness as explained in point 1 above. After they break up, he tries to evaluate their relationship and find out the reason they should break up.

3. 이별 – The Core of iKON Why Why Why Lyrics

Source: iKON Official YouTube

이별 (Ibyeol) means farewell, break up, or parting. This term is found in line 이별 없이 영원할 줄 알았는데 (Ibyeol eobsi yeongwonhal jul araneunde). We could translate it to “I thought we’d be together forever without any breakup”. This line implies his denial toward their farewell. He thought that their love or relationship would last forever. He couldn’t expect this terrible thing happened to them. Actually, there is a synonym in Korean to describe “breaking up”. We commonly find this term in many Korean dramas because it is more popular or familiar. We can use 헤어지다 (heeojida) which has the same meaning with이별 (Ibyeol).
