Just a Few Words:
I heard this all the time when I was in Korea!  I didn't really like SECRET's other songs like "Madonna", "Magic", and "Poison", but this song is really catchy!  The video is adorable and SECRET is really good with the aegyo.  This was also what set off my new-found fiery passion for peppy, aegyo-packed songs.  Hey, it's K-Pop and this is what K-Pop does best.

English Rating:  7 / 10
"I just want to be your love" is a tad awkward, but it's still okay.  But "Do you hear me that I'm falling in love" is missing some punctuation.  There needs to be a question mark after "me", removed the "that" and add in a couple of space or they need to get rid of the "me".
The pronunciation is good, but still with a hint of an accent.
