    이번 공개된 ‘꿈의 겨울’은 한국인들이 즐겨 듣는 팝송 바비 맥퍼린의 ‘돈 워리, 비 해피(Don’t worry, Be happy)’를 편곡한 것으로~~
    "Winter's Dream", opened to the public today, was a new arrangement of Bobby McFerrin's "Don't worry Be Happy", One of the favorite songs, Koreans most enjoy listening to.
    This too will pass away.

    Can anyone translate the lyrics into English? I like it even though I have no clue what they're singing... (Unless it IS Don't Worry, Be Happy.)

    It sounds like it. I know she sang a version of it for one of her Samsung air conditioner commercials. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDNIjmx70bM

    Lyrics are here. The Google translate is as follows, although I'm sure someone who speaks Korean will be better at it. XD

    The world as we wish
    Ally alone gonna end
    I believe the winter of dreams

    Tears will come eventually
    To clear the ice and snow on flowers
    I believe the winter of dreams

    Winter, we wanted the world
    Ally alone gonna end
    I believe two are

    Probably eventually shed ttamdeuleun
    To clear the ice and snow on flowers
    I believe two are

    Wu ling ling ling
    Wu ling ling
    Ooo ling ling

    All the people we find
    It's never going to regret it
    I believe the dream of Pyeongchang

    All the people we find
    It's never going to forget
    Two are the dream of Pyeongchang

    Wu ling ling ling
    Wu ling ling
    Wu ling ling

    The world as we wish
    Ally alone gonna end
    I believe the winter of dreams

    Tears will come eventually
    On ice with fresh snow
    I believe the winter of dreams

    Winter, we wanted the world
    Ally alone gonna end
    I believe two are

    Probably eventually shed ttamdeuleun
    On ice with fresh snow
    I believe two are

    What's cool now and say
    'll Wait with
    I believe the dream of Pyeongchang

    What's cool now and say
    'll Wait with
    I believe the dream of Pyeongchang

    Some cute candid capture of Yuna and what she is like off ice. As a judge, she seems fairly strict. I wish there's a sub version somewhere soon, would be nice to know the feedback apart from David Wilson.

    she seems having a good time. Is her ankle healed already? When is she coming back to LA?

    IMO, her Arirang program should be saved for Olympic season. It is a proven winner and I don't see the point in wasting it aside from her team being confident of woving together a better one.

    If she keeps it, I hope she rearranges the music cuts and gets rid of the creepy voice during the footwork section. Other than that, the rest of the program is beautiful.

    That creepy voice portion was the highlight for me. Though it needs a little bit of refinement. The program has a lot of potential.

    Sorry to hear that you felt creepiness listening to a beautiful piece of Korean folk music. AFAIK, it symbolizes resilience of ordinary people enduring ups and downs of their lives. While it isn't a light-hearted music, it certainely isn't supposed to induce creepiness.
    I hope this helps you to appreciate the program better.

    I felt creepiness listening to voices, but not in Yuna's program, in that young Russian Plushenko-wannabe's program.

    Maybe it does sound creepy to some foreign ears. I think it's a cultural thing, and my guess is non-western people in general might be more appreciative of the vocal passage. It was one of the highlights for me too, of course this coming from someone that shares the same sentiment and heartstrings.

    I found the vocal part chilling and thrilling. Having been familiar with Asian folk and tribal songs already, the vocal part is not as much as a song with words but sounds expressed from the gut feeling of yearning/haunting which words or songs are unable to express. The vocal is probably from the mourning songs you hear at 'wakes', so no wonder it crept you out; it is almost like talking to the spirits.

    The Taiwanese Aboriginal Song for example has been adopted a while back by Enigma - Return to Innocence http://youtu.be/Rk_sAHh9s08 to great effect, that shares similar characteristics as as the tribal vocals from 'Homage to Korea' music cuts.

    Actually, I love it when risks are made to challenge our perception. Even having been trained in western classical music, I appreciated the Peking Operas that my grandfather took me to between age 3 - 8 and realises that it must have sounded so weird to western ears (different octaves for starters). There are several untapped areas of 'foreignness' still to be explored in a conservative artistic sport like figure skating. While it may alienate many initially, it may pave ways for greater things to come.

    I had no idea that part was from Taiwanese Aboriginal Song. Thanks for letting me know.

    I want to see more Asian skaters performing to music that are truely Asian, rather than those portrayed by westerners as Asian. How many Asian skaters used Turandot, Momoir of Geisha, Miss Saigon, Madame Butterfly? While I don't consider it a sin to skate to these pieces, I don't think they become good representatives of their own cultrue and background.

    Beautifully said and totally agreed. I appreciate the efforts made by the skaters in bringing something new and original in their programs. I want to see Yu-Na and others try more with different, unconventional themes/music, and expand the sport’s boundaries, in competition skating and show skating.
