Jackie Chan: A beautiful song that mixes both Chinese language and Korean language

Posted by Grace Feng on April 7, 2012

If you happen to be a language learner of both Chinese and Korean, this post will give you an opportunity to practice your listening comprehension for both through one beautiful love song of movie: The Myth.

Jackie Chan takes on two roles in the movie; One as the Qin Dynasty-era general named Meng Yi, one as Meng Yi’s reincarnation, archaeologist Jack Lee. The song is about the love story between the general and a Korean princess.

You’ll soon discover that the song is sung in Chinese by the male voice and in Korean by the female voice. I’ll post the lyrics in pinyin and English translation below (curtsey of http://andback.wordpress.com). Chinese caption is included in the video. Hope you enjoy …

The Myth – Endless Love

Jie kai wo, zui shen mi de deng dai
Xing xing zhui luo fong zai chui dong
Zhong yu zai jiang ni yong ru huai zhong
Lliang ke xin chan dou
Xiang xin wo bu bian de zhen xin
Qian nian deng dai yao wo cheng nuo
Wu lun jing guo duo shao de han dong
Wo jue bu fang shou

Release me from this mysterious waiting
the stars are falling; the wind is blowing.
Finally I can hold you in my arms.
Two hearts beating together.
Believe me that my heart has never-change
waiting a thousand year, You have my promise
No matter how many cold winter have passed
I will never let you go.

Ijen naye soneul chapgo neuneul kabwayo
Uri saranghaeddon naldeul senggaghaebwayo
Uri nomu saranghaesso apassod neyo
Soro saranghangdan maldo motheson neyo

 

Now hold my hands, and close your eyes
Please think about the days when we were in love.
We loved each other too much, it caused us such pain
We can’t even say “I love you”

Mei yi ye, bei xing tong chuan yue
Sze nian yong mei you zhong dian
Zao xhi guan le gu du xiang sui
Wo wei xiao mian dui
Xiang xin wo yi xuan ze deng dai
Zai duo ku tong ye bu shan duo
Zhi you ni de wen rou neng jie jiu
Wu bian de leng mo

Every night my heart aches.
I never stop thinking of you.
I am used to being alone for such a long time
And I face it with a smile.
Believe me, I choose to wait.
Even though it’s painful, I won’t leave.
Only your tenderness can save me
From the endless cold.

Rang ai cheng wei ni wo xin zhong
Nai yong yuan sheng kai de hua
Chuan yue shi kong jue bu di tou
Yong bu fang qi de meng

Let the love in our hearts
Become a blossoming flower
We can pass through time, never bowing our heads,
And never giving up our dream.

Uri nomu saranghaesso apassod neyo
Soro saranghangdan malgo motheson neyo

We loved each other too much, it caused us such pain
We can’t even say the words “I love you”

Rang ai cheng wei ni wo xing zhong
Na yong yuan sheng kai de hua

Let the love in our hearts
Become a blossoming flower

Uri sohjunghaedon yaksog ijineun marayo

We never forget our promise.

Wei you zhen ai zhui sui ni wo
Chuan yue wu jin shi kong

Only true love follows us
as we travel through the endless space and time.

Soro saranghangdan maldo motheson neyo

We can’t even say the words “I love you.”

Ai shi xin zhong wei yi, bu bian mei li de shen hua

Love is the only myth that exist in the hearts that never change.

    好听的首歌。我要承认一下,真不知道成龙会唱歌!好像很多中国电影明星也都会演和唱,太厉害了!

    对了Grace,你自己会董韩语或者你只有从一个网站上抄了吗?

      Barry, 对韩语我只能听懂几个词, 最喜欢的韩语就是”kimchee”, 因为我特喜欢吃它, 呵呵…

      英语翻译是从一个同样喜欢这首歌的人的微博抄来的, see I put ” (curtsey of http://andback.wordpress.com) ” there? :-)

      我觉得演电影跟唱歌都是表演艺术, 先干好一样再发展另一样不应该是很难的事. 不过两样都能做到很好确实不容易, 成龙确实是个很值得佩服的演员.
