Polaris, I Am The Brightest Star

2That special meeting, heart and mind connection
A simple translation for those who might like to understand the lyrics of this meaningful song.
Sang Hyun sings the stanza highlighted in light blue.
Song title: Polaris
Composer: Lee Jung Min
Singers: Yoon Sang Hyun & Kim Hee Jin
Ever inadvertently looked at the sky
The night sky illuminated
There is one big star
That awakens the darkness
I am ordinary like the others
A boring life with no socializing
More brilliant than any star
To be the light
Become a star in the world
All the negative looks
Even that which ridicules me as such
I am not intimidated
Become a star in the world
Now I can see
My work will be the brightest star in the world
I am no different from the others
I want to be someone special



Long ago I had seen
Brightness such as that light
Become a star in the world
All the negative looks
Even that which ridicules me
I am not intimidated



Become a star in the world
Now I can see
My work will be the brightest star in the world
Become a star in the world
Until now you have known me
I hope now it had been cleared away
Mine and your differences
Become a star in the world



We have done well enough
The brightest everywhere
I am the only star

Sang Hyun recently participated in a promotional video ‘Polaris’ for the Korea Disability Arts & Culture Center (이음) which was played during the screenings at Lotte Cinema and through SNS since January 26. 
Sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and organized by the Korea Disability Culture Academy, it hopes to convey a message of hope and for the disabled to show their passion and skills with its slogan ‘That special meeting, heart and mind connection’. Its message is also repeated in the lyrics ‘Become a star in the world. My work is going to be the brightest star in the world’.
Besides Sang Hyun, the other participants are guitarist Kim Ji Hui (intellectual disability), musical artiste Kim Hee Jin (visually impaired), sculpture artiste Kim Myeong Ah (hearing impaired) and ‘Polaris’ composer-lyricist Lee Jung Min (brain lesion disorder).

‘욱씨남정기’ – Confusing Title

LYW SH                 Lee Yo Won (Ok Da Jung)                                                                Sang Hyun (Nam Jeong Gi)
Related articles:
According to Hancinema’s article on the new drama ‘욱씨남정기’ (Uk Ssi Nam Jeong Gi) its English title is ‘Bad Tempered Grown-ups’. I wonder if it’s an alternative title since the name Nam Jeong Gi is missing. Could the first 2 characters ‘욱씨’ be referring to the female character and read as ‘Miss Hot Temper & Nam Jeong Gi’?
Anyway if the conflicting media reports have been sorted out and confirmed, Sang Hyun’s character Nam Jeong Gi is a timid/reserved but warm hearted Cosmetic Marketing Division Director in contrast to Lee Yo Won’s hot-tempered character Ok Da Jung. Polar opposites that drive each other up the wall or perhaps be a balance to the other’s temperament? 
According to the media reports, shooting of the drama has begun. I’m certainly looking forward to March.
Amendment above:
On going through the articles again, I noticed that there is a slight difference in the female character’s first name 옥 so perhaps it could be a play on it as her nickname ‘욱씨’ (Miss Hot Temper?).

Watching JTBC On-air

Decided to check out JTBC to see if we could watch the new drama ‘욱씨남정기’ when it airs on 18th March.
It’s never too early to find out even if we still have around 6 weeks before the current drama ‘Madame Antoine’ ends and ‘욱씨남정기’ takes over its Friday-Saturday slot at 20:30 (KST).
I was planning to check out ‘Madame Antoine’ this weekend but happened to catch its repeat episode 4 tonight. That’s great, thanks JTBC.
