Just a Few Words:  Finally, this is up!  Thank you for waiting so patiently!  This song turned out to be much more difficult than I had first anticipated.  Because of it, I want to thank 윤언니 for answering my ever-pestering questions.  ^^  감사합니다!!
This definitely sounds like something One Direction would sing, but it fits EXO perfectly!  Also, it's nice to clearly hear Kai sing and not just rap.

English:  10 / 10
How hard is it to say "Three.  Six.  Five?" :)

Translation Difficulty:  8 out of 10.
Okay, so this was tougher than I thought!  The parts in the verses where they sing the numbers was obviously forced a little to fit the song.   Also, this a song that is difficult to translate literally into English.  As evident by the help I got from 소윤언니, I kinda got lost when translating it! ^^

4 out of 10.
This is a prime example of how this gets easier over time.  My Korean is getting to point where I look back and say "What the heck was I thinking?"  But this is still tricky... :)
