[Lyrics] I’m Crying – Taemin *No t/n

[Lyrics] I’m Crying – Taemin
In an empty room, only the beating of the heart can be heard in its stillness
Singing about loneliness I am crying as the sound of rain fill the air
You aren’t here, you aren’t here anymore
As I try to convince myself I chase after your persisting afterimage

Ah you who shiver under the rain, that day when I felt those slender shoulders of yours
It still feels like yesterday
I’m crying I’m crying I’m crying ’cause I miss you

Those eyes don’t look at me anymore
Remaining clear as glass Ah
Please, if you came to me and blamed me unsparingly, I would be able to give up
It’s always raining in your heart
I couldn’t become your umbrella
I sing to the never-ceasing rain that I love you

Those days when I pretended to not notice your tears
My heart only looked at the future I drew on/for my own
I don’t want anything else but you, but you
I understand them now, your feelings

Ah the scenery that I took for granted, the warmth I always felt in my left arm
Yes my heart remembers
I’m trying I’m trying I’m trying to forget you

I want to keep this memory in my heart
The scent of your wet hair crosses my mind out of the blue
Please, If I could take those hands and start walking once again, I would swear that I would be able to change
It also began raining in my heart before I knew and for a time that almost feels eternal
I sing to the never-ceasing rain that I love you

You are also seeing the same sky somewhere
A gentle rain, that also resembles love, pours down
Sadness and regret, it flushes them away gently
I’m crying I’m crying I’m crying
’cause I’m missing you

Even these tears will eventually dry out, until then

What do those eyes see now
Remaining clear as glass Ah
Please, if you came to me and blamed me unsparingly, I would be able to give up
It’s always raining in your heart
I wanted to be your umbrella
I sing to the never-ceasing rain that I love you

[Lyrics] Taemin – Flame of Love *With t/n

[Lyrics] Taemin – Flame of Love *With t/n

Your traces that almost seem within reach if I reached out my hands, they’re clouded by my tears
The setting sun and the rising moon miss each other like the two and call forth darkness

[the two = I’m not exactly sure who “the two” are | Miss Each other: as in physically ‘miss’ (pass by) each other, not in the emotional sense where you long for someone]

Slipping away from in between the fingers
Days of happiness turn into memories
I am still here left behind, unchanged

**Burning brightly crimson Flame of Love
Fragments of love soar above once again like fire sparks
Melting your heart, it will be kept aflame until then Flame of Love

No matter how brightly the stars shine, I’m reminded of you and I am only pained
If all things beautiful were to disappear, would I be able to forget?

Even if the song by the birds that set off in the morning when the moon dims brush against my ears
See I still remain trapped here by my love for you

[The original doesn’t actually specify which ‘love’ they’re talking about so it’s probably better to remain ambiguous ^^;; maybe “trapped here by love” would work? I think I saw juju’s translation say “captive of love” and I think that works better]

**(Repeat Chorus)

I hope that this undying flame can someday cast light on you gently… warmly
[The literal translation is “It will be great if….”]

**(Repeat Chorus)

**(Repeat Chorus)
It will be kept aflame until then Flame of Love

Album and Visual Concept Description

His solo work, which will be the first in a year since “Sayonara Hitori,” is a piece where light and darkness, stillness and motion merge emotionally – an original/inventive piece prepared with all his might that was possible because it was by Taemin!

SHINee – Taemin, a collaboration with Mika Ninagawa. Intensified elegance and beauty

6/20/17 5:59 JST

20170620-00000006-dal-000-2-viewIt was revealed on the 19th that Taemin (23) from the five member Korean boy group SHINee had collaborated with photographer Mika Ninagawa. Mika Ninagawa (44) photographed the visuals for his 2nd mini album as a solo artist, “Flame of Love” (July 18 release). To intensify his alluring quality(*), an offer was made to Mika Ninagawa who was known for her brilliantly colored photographs. Filmed in mid-April in Tokyo, arranging large amounts of flowers(**) – it expressed Ninagawa’s style of worldview.

Taemin, who immediately sold out his Nippon Budokan Solo concert (July 1, 2) commented, “It was a concept that expressed my strong points to its best and I could focus on just shooting,” and showed an expression of satisfaction/approval.

(*) elegance and beauty, seductiveness, bewitching quality etc (**) Fresh / real flowers

[Trans] 170414 “TAEMIN THE 1st STAGE Nippon Budokan” Application Information and Announcement

Announcement

It has been decided that Taemin’s first solo stage, “TAEMIN THE 1st STAGE Nippon Budokan” will be held!!
A year after his solo debut last July, his first SOLO STAGE will finally be held!
Taemin himself is very happy that he is able to stand on the stage of the historic Nippon Budokan!
The performance for last year’s title track “Sayonara Hitroi” is a given, but the production of new songs for the concert is currently underway! Let’s welcome together the moment of Taemin’s new start!

***News on Taemin’s Japanese Official HP

170414 A Message from Taemin (1:06)

Hello, members of SHINee World J, this is Taemin~
Yes. I have news to tell everyone today.
I’ve been wanting to tell you for a long time so I’ve been restraining myself but it was decided my first solo stage will be held on the 1st and 2nd of July~ Whoooo~ An applause~ He he
The venue will be… THE Budou-kan..![1]
Yes. Because I want to show an appearance that is different from SHINee’s Taemin so I’m giving it all my thought on what kind of stage I should make it.
I would be happy if I am able to welcome that time with many of you.
Also, to accompany[2] the concert, I am preparing a new album.
Going to / Staying in Japan more than the other members, I’ve secretly been preparing. Please look forward to how the album will turn out!
I think I will have more opportunities to meet everyone through various activities [in the future]. Please look forward to Taemin hereafter. I ask for your support~
Well then, this was Taemin.

Staffs: Taemin who is currently busying himself with preparation for the concert and the production of the new songs.
He’s very fired up!
We kindly ask for everyone’s continued support!

[1] You won’t believe changed to THE (nanto) : Similar to Why when used as an interjection. I think “Behold!” would be a close translation in some contexts. THE in this setence, means “none other than,” but word “nanto” really means You won’t believe! or can you believe it?
[2] To accompany: for the concert

170407 Osaka – What was Taemin hinting at? [Link]
Taemin: Yes! Aaah~ everyone of Osaka! We met again after a really short time, didn’t we. I’m really happy but let’s have fun again before long. And, ummm, I will do my best for the remaining concerts. And ummm, …… Ah, this is a secret… yes (yup). (66
Key: Ahahaha! What is this!
Onew: Eh?
Key: Wooooow
Minho: Uwaaaah
Onew: Ehhhhh???
Key: Uwah uwah uwah uwah uwoooi
Minho: Ummm, it’s a secret?
Key: Well, I will ask him [when we get back to] the dressing room
Taemin: Ok, Minho-saan
Fans: Ehhhhhhhhhh!!!
Onew: Could it be…
Taemin: No, you can’t
Onew: Were you going to say that you love them or something like that?
Taemin: I don’t really say phrases like “I love you”
Key: You said it just now though
Taemin: Ok, Thank you ~ Please come to to-…tomorrow’s concert…
Key: haha
Onew: What kind of confidence(*)
Jonghyun: There are no tickets! Now (laughs)
Taemin: Yes

(*)I’m not sure what he meant by this. A slightly more literal translation would be “of what confidence”  He might have meant “where did you get your confidence from?” but i’m really not sure
