Is it possible to watch the following 최정원 performance without tearing up?

Answer: number! This is impossible.

“Hymne a l’amour” is a French love song that translates into Korean as “사랑 의 찬가” (“love hymn”). The French lyrics were written by the late French singer Edith Piaf after her lover, French boxer Marcel Cerdan, died in a plane crash in 1949. The song is a testament to the extent of the French singer’s devastation with the death of her lover.

There are different Korean translations of the French song: literal translations and translations that are meant to be sung. Here is my translation of the Korean version sung by the Korean goddess Choi Jong-won (최정원):

“Love Hymn”
“Love Hymn”

the sky is falling

Even if the earth comes out
Although the sky is falling,

Though the earth crumbles beneath me,

Only if you love me

I have no fear
If you only say that you love me,
I will not be afraid

Love fills the morning

If this love wraps around my body
If love fills my morning,
If this love protects my body,

Not afraid of anything

because you love me
I will not fear anything
because you love me.

“Marcel”

the sky is falling

Even if the earth comes out

Although the sky is falling,

Though the earth crumbles beneath me,

Only if you love me
If you just say you love me,. . .

Even at the end of the world

I will go

if you want

I will go to the ends of the earth

If that is what you want.


Even the moon in the sky

Even if it is amazing

I’ll give it to you
Although it is the moon or the bright sun,

I will snatch them from heaven and give them to you.

leave friends

throw everything away

if you want

I will even abandon my friends,

I will give up everything,

If this is what you want.

Even if people laugh

can do anything

if you want

Although people make fun of me,

I can do it all

If that is what you want.

Fate separates us

Even if God left me

Although fate separates us,

Even though God forsakes me,

Only if you love me

I will follow you

If you only say that you love me,

I will follow you.

We are together forever

We will be together forever.

Infinity green

In the sky of happiness

I think we will meet again.

infinite blue,

In pure sky happiness,

I think we will meet again.

In the sky of happiness
to see you again

In pure sky happiness,

we will meet again.

to see you again

Believe

I think we will meet again.
