歌詞

Korean version

muri ni akaruku waratte mite mo
kawaiku wa narenai yo
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

meda chitakute utatte mite mo
daremo kiite kurenai shi
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

yo no naka wa fubyoudou
umareta toki kara sutaato rain ga chigaun da

nani mo kamo umaku ikanakute
iraira suru suteki na anata no youni ikanai no

jikokeno dakara mitsume naide
kakuretai kono yo wo nuke dashitai
douka shiteru yo

I think I’m ugly
And nobody wants to love me
Just like her I wanna be pretty I wanna be pretty
Don’t lie to my face tellin’ me I’m pretty

I think I’m ugly
And nobody wants to love me
Just like her I wanna be pretty I wanna be pretty
Don’t lie to my face cuz I know I’m ugly

nee, doujou wa gomen da yo
hinekureta kokoro ga anata wo urandari shite

sotto shite…
watashi ja futsuri ai
sono ue kara mesen na tokoro ga iya ni, ki ni sawaru no

hotto ite nani suru ka wakaranai
mou dokoka ni kietai
kokoro sakebu douka shiteru yo

I think I’m ugly
And nobody wants to love me
Just like her I wanna be pretty I wanna be pretty
Don’t lie to my face tellin’ me I’m pretty

I think I’m ugly
And nobody wants to love me
Just like her I wanna be pretty I wanna be pretty
Don’t lie to my face cuz I know I’m ugly

All alone
I’m all alone
All alone
I’m all alone
dakishimete hoshii…
hontou wa samishii…

All alone
I’m all alone
All alone
I’m all alone (I’m always all alone)
dakishimete hoshii
demo sonna hito soba ni wa inai

I think I’m ugly
And nobody wants to love me
Just like her I wanna be pretty I wanna be pretty
Don’t lie to my face tellin’ me I’m pretty

I think I’m ugly
And nobody wants to love me
Just like her I wanna be pretty I wanna be pretty
Don’t lie to my face cuz I know I’m ugly

  1. please! Translate ^^

  2. I’m not sure but when minzy sing her first part on the second line it’s probably Susu not Suru… When i listen to the song i hear Susu not Suru…

  3. do you have kanji for this song ???

  4. the japanese versions frustrate me because they aren’t pronouncing the lyrics right. it’s not “wakara-na-eeee.” it’s “wakara-nigh” (i used english equivalent pronunciations) and they do this all throughout the song. the pattern/rhythm in which they sing is awkward too. it’s sped up in some places and SUPER slowed down in others, and it’s not correct (i blame this on having to fit it into the korean pattern, but still).

    it’s just incredibly annoying to try to sing along when the rhythm is all thrown off and the pronunciation is wrong.

  5. ^ I agree, but at the same time, I forgive them because it’s almost like… it’s cute in a way… I don’t know ^///^
    The japanese versions are the only kind I listen to. Maybe I’m kind of used to it. I will say that out of all the korean singers that have stepped into japan (that I’ve heard, which isn’t many), 2NE1 does seem to pronounce things the most poorly…

  6. so I wasn’t the only one who noticed it. The pronunciations were killing me throughout the song. And the Japanese version is the only one I bother listening to because I really don’t understand Korean. Still, I give them their props for giving us the Japanese version of this amazing song.

    I’m still really surprised at these girl’s pronunciation of Japanese words. Of all the Korean artists/groups who’ve stepped into the J-Pop scene, I really thought they weren’t gonna have that problem.

  7. Well I think they pronounced it that way because it went with the flow of the song. If they would have said wakaranai like you wanted it honestly wouldn’t sound right. Besides the japanese vowel pronunciation was quite right due to the fack of ” i ” being pronounced as the “ee” sound. So I thought they were just fine.

    • @sick7one_boi so glad someone else feels the frustration! i’m shocked at the pronunciation too, considering cl lived in japan for a while, and minzy is supposed to be fluent in it. again, it could be just that they had to adjust the words to fit the korean pattern, which is fine if that’s the case. this is why i think artists shouldn’t just rerecord songs in another language, since it just sounds awkward. this isn’t a phenomenon that’s unique from korean to japanese. a song that goes from english to spanish or vice versa sounds weird and isn’t as good as the original (just listen to anything that shakira has recorded in both languages)

      @hikari i’ve studied japanese for quite a few years so i know how the vowels are pronounced, and i can assure you that the words in this song are not pronounced correctly. like i said before, the words were probably stretched and altered to fit the korean pattern of the original, and i know there’s creative/poetic license that can and is taken when writing songs, but there’s no denying that the 2ne1’s japanese pronunciations are awkward and at time, incorrect. i said it above, but i’ll say it again, i think that rather than just rerecord their korean songs, they should have recorded new material for the japanese market, and it would have solved all this debate.

  8. Um. Just on the “wakaranai” thing. “wa-ka-ra-na-ee” is the correct pronunciation. It’s just that in normal speaking, no one actually talks that slow, syllables are dropped/slurred, so it normal speech it sounds closer to “wakara-nigh”, similar to how “suki” (suu-kee) sounds more like “skee” and desu (deh-suu) sounds more like “dess”.

    I agree their pronunciation isn’t the best though. But hey, they’re Koreans. Cut them some slack.
