“Reply 1994” Releases Fourth O.S.T. “Can’t Have You” + English Translations

It’s fair to say that we’ve arrived at the melodramatic, emotional middle of the drama. So it’s appropriate that the fourth song released would be as painfully beautiful as this. The original was released in the ’90s by a group called Bank but has been remade by other artists including Hyun Bin who had a hit when he recorded this for his movie “Friend, Our Legend.”

As the title suggests, the ballad Can’t Have You is about a love one can’t have. The singer laments that even though the one they love with all their heart is beside them, they can’t have them. Chil Bong can’t have Na Jung because her heart belongs to another. Na Jung can’t have Trash because he won’t let her. Trash can’t have Na Jung for an unknown reason. Given the suspense, it had better be big.

This version is performed by a rookie called Hi Ni:

Here’s Hyun Bin’s version with English subs:

Translated lyrics for Hyun Bin’s version from Hyunnie’s Pexer’s Blog credited to Anonymous Kathys Bench:

Your voice that sounds drunk
The words that suddenly remind you of me
That night when I ran up to you trying to control a sad feeling
You told me with dim eyes as you were greeting me
That you would even give up the rest of your life for him, who you broke up with
After you distanced yourself from me for a few days
As I was going back home
I was saying just the words I couldn’t even say in the end
Even though you love someone with all your heart
You can’t have that someone
Look at me, even though Im beside you like this
I can’t have have you
Your tearful voice
The words saying you need me
I’m pleased
If I can cheer you at least once
With red eyes
You looked at me and asked me
If I knew that the other name of love was pain
After you distanced yourself from me for a few days
As I was going back home
I was saying just the words I couldn’t even say in the end
Even though you love someone with all your heart
You can’t have that someone
Look at me even though Im beside you like this
I can’t have you

Doesn’t this song just make you want to hug them and set them up on blind dates? Dry your tears, guys, it will all be better in 2013.
