Just wanna share with everyone because I am in love with the sound. Great to see Seo Tae Ji comeback and made IU sing this song. It really suit her voice. Gotta listen to his version soon!

‘SOGYEOKDONG’, a song perfected with the ‘SOGYEOKDONG Project’, is written, composed, and produced by Tai ji Seo and performend by IU.
It is a low-tempo, groovy electronic song, based on a rich tight-knit electronic source and some trap sound features. Yet the song has a clear, strong melody line which will really enchant the listeners.
The lyrics are about SOGYEOKDONG in the 80s. The song is filled with warm words about longing.
In fact, the lyrics are so vivid that the words and the sounds makes the listener visualize the walls and the alleys around the lampposts. – 1theK

나 그대와 둘이 걷던
그 좁은 골목계단을 홀로 걸어요
그 옛날의 짙은 향기가
내 옆을 스치죠
널 떠나는 날 사실 난

등 밑 처마 고드름과 참새소리
예쁜 이 마을에 살 거예요
소격동을 기억하나요
지금도 그대로 있죠

아주 늦은 밤 하얀 눈이 왔었죠
소복이 쌓이니 내 맘도 설렜죠
나는 그 날 밤 단 한숨도 못 잤죠
잠들면 안돼요
눈을 뜨면 사라지죠

어느 날 갑자기 그 많던 냇물이
말라갔죠
내 어린 마음도 그 시냇물처럼
그렇게 말랐겠죠

너의 모든 걸 두 눈에 담고 있었죠
소소한 하루가 넉넉했던 날
그러던 어느 날 세상이 뒤집혔죠
다들 꼭 잡아요
잠깐 사이에 사라지죠

잊고 싶진 않아요
하지만 나에겐
사진 한 장도 남아있지가 않죠
그저 되뇌이면서 되뇌이면서
나 그저 애를 쓸 뿐이죠

아주 늦은 밤 하얀 눈이 왔었죠
소복이 쌓이니 내 맘도 설렜죠
나는 그 날 밤 단 한숨도 못 잤죠
잠들면 안돼요
눈을 뜨면 사라지죠

[Translations]

I walk alone on the narrow stairway
which I used to walk with you
The deep scent of the past breezes by me
The day I left you, I was to be honest

I am going to live in this beautiful town
where the icicles dangle and birds sings
Do you remember Sogyeok-dong, it hasn’t changed a bit

It snowed white one late night
The flakes piled and made my heart race
I couldn’t sleep a minute that night
I shouldn’t sleep
Everything will disappear in the blink of an eye

All the water in the streams dried up one day
My young heart must’ve dried up like the streams too

I carried everything about you in my eyes
When simple days were more than enough
Then one day the world flipped, hang on tight
Everything disappears in such a short moment

I don’t want to forget but for me
There’s not a single photograph left
I simply recall and recall
I just try really hard

It snowed white one late night
The flakes piled and made my heart race
I couldn’t sleep a minute that night
I shouldn’t sleep
Everything will disappear in the blink of an eye
