어머나
Oh My

어머나 어머나 이러지 마세요
Oh my, oh my, don't be like this
여자의 마음은 갈대랍니다
A lady's heart is like a reed
안돼요 왜이래요 묻지말아요
No, why do you do this. Don't ask questions
더 이상 내게 원하시면 안돼요
You should not want any more from me
오늘 처음 만난 당신이지만 내 사랑인걸요
I only met you for the first time today, but you are my love
헤어지면 남이되어 모른척하겠지만
Though when we part, we will become strangers and pretend not to know
좋아해요 사랑해요
I like you, I love you
거짓말처럼 당신을 사랑해요
I love you like a lie
소설속에 영화속에 멋진 주인공은 아니지만
Though you may not be a handsome character from a novel or a movie
괜찮아요 말해봐요
It's ok, just tell me
당신 위해서라면 다 줄게요
For you, I will give you my all


어머나 어머나 이러지 마세요
Oh my, oh my, don't be like this
여자의 마음은 바람입니다
A lady's heart is like the wind
안돼요 왜이래요 잡지말아요
No, why do you do this. Don't hold me
더 이상 내게 바라시면 안돼요
You should not desire any more from me
오늘 처음 만난 당신이지만 내 사랑인걸요
I only met you for the first time today, but you are my love
헤어지면 남이되어 모른척하겠지만
Though when we part, we will become strangers and pretend not to know
좋아해요 사랑해요
I like you, I love you
거짓말처럼 당신을 사랑해요
I love you like a lie
소설속에 영화속에 멋진 주인공은 아니지만
Though you may not be a handsome character from a novel or a movie
괜찮아요 말해봐요
It's ok, just tell me
당신 위해서라면 다 줄게요
For you, I will give you my all
소설속에 영화속에 멋진 주인공은 아니지만
Though you may not be a handsome character from a novel or a movie
괜찮아요 말해봐요
It's ok, just tell me
당신 위해서라면 다 줄게요
For you, I will give you my all



Why is this creative person important?
Trot may be a genre that has a clumsy place in Korea. The screaming women (= fans of boy/girl groups) don't care regarding trot because it sounds old school. The too-serious K-pop aficionados (= fans of rock, hip hop and indie) dismiss trot as innovative and Japan-origined.
They each have some extent. Because the Korean noted within the transient history of K-pop, the trot was the primary -- and for a protracted time in sensible terms, the sole -- type of popular music genre in Korea. It's an imitation of a preferred music in Japan, beyond question a product of Japan's organization of Korea. The music itself is completely slavish, using constant distinctive one-two beat created by a percussion box throughout the decades of its existence. The lyrics were catchy for one listen, then quickly stale and vacuous.
From its efflorescence within the Sixties and 70s, trot suffered a protracted decline till it reached a nadir at around late 1990s-early 2000s. There have been a couple of brave souls -- typically older male artists in their 50s -- who unbroken chugging on, however they did nothing to reverse the perception that trot was a musical equivalent of a staple dish.
Jang single-handedly reversed that trend. To be sure, it's in all probability helped that within the 2000s, the trend in Korean popular culture toward retro -- the tendency to see into the past as additional innocent and romantic -- was full swing. Her music isn't something special, because the acquainted one-two beat is gift throughout. However, there ought to be absolute confidence that it took Jang's full talent and gumption for this moribund trend to return back. It had been impossible for a reasonably girl in her 20s would hitch her musical fortune to a dying genre. That Jang was ready to bring back the trend by the sheer force of her spunk and charm is sort of an action.
It is still not entirely clear whether or not trot can utterly shed its stigma of being an innovative music of the worst recent days. However, in spite of its inventive deserves, trot survived for this long in Korea a minimum of partially as a result of it resonated with Koreans themselves -- it'd been a shame if one thing that was such a large a part of Korea's popular culture utterly disappeared into oblivion. Thanks to Jang, trot is currently seen as a legitimate career path for young Korean pop artists, and consequently received an injection of recent talent that may carry the genre into the longer term.

Interesting trivia:
  Jang was a winner of an outstanding amateur singing contest in 1999 (MBC 강변가요제) with popular music, however toiled in obscurity for 5 years till her debut album in 2004. In an interview, Jang conjointly professed that she originally needed to be a rock musician.
