Just a Few Words:
I just love this song!  I wish this song had been promoted as a B-Side with a music video.  This is a song that is very much a song that is best enjoyed in Korean.  A lot of the nuances are lost in trying to translate it.

English:  5 / 10
So this was a tough call.  The English, once again, is okay "from a distance," meaning that on its own it is okay, but when you translate with the Korean, it gets wonky.  Also, I docked points for "baby boo."  I guess it's a Canadian thing, but I really dislike that phrase...

Translation Difficulty:  4 / 10
Now that I've got my whiteboard, translating has gotten easier!
