나의노래 - 문정선 [문정선,1971] (3 min 41 sec)

나의 노래" 가수/문정선

샛노란 은행 잎이 가엾이 진다해도

정말로 당신께선 철없이 울긴가요

새삘간 단풍 잎이 강물에 흐른다고

정말로 못견디게 서러워 하긴가요

이 세상에 태어나 당신을 사랑하고

후회 없이 돌아가는 이 몸은 낙엽 이라

아 - - 떠나는 이몸 보다 슬프지 않으리

나이가 77세가 되서 이 노래를 들으니, 정말 실감을 느낍니다.

고인이 된 옥탁방 고양이 정다빈 양을 추도.
경쾨하고 달콤한 코매디로 시청자를 즐겹게 해줬는데, 자살을 하다니 애석함을 느낍니다.
비관할 이유도 없을 텐데, 외 젊은 목슴을 끊어야 했는지.

Memorial eulogy to the young Korean actress who committed suicide at age of 27.
She was famous for a sweet role she played in TV comedy drama "Cat in Roof Top Apartment."
Why did she end her young life, I don't know. Her death fills me with sorrow.

In the drama, she played a young girl who lived with her lover, a starving student, in a roof-top apartment. Asked what she was carrying when she took left-over foods home, she replied "Oh, it is for my cat."

The story has it that appearance of this bird in the sky heralded a unified ancient Korea.

The story is from Korean TV Drama "Jumong" which was introduced in this blog previously.

It is difficult to fly between two yucca trees but this plane did it by itself, shearing off the wing.

Twin yucca trees standing at the landing zone were obstacles. During landing, the plane went thru between these trees and broke the wing.

생과 사, 인생이란 무엇인가?

세월은 어찌 할 수 없는 것. 生者必滅이란 진리를 따릅시다. (생명을 갖인 것은 반드시 죽는다는 불교교리 - 인생은 허무하다는 말)

젊다고 자만하지 마시오. 시간의 차야 있겠지만, 젊은이도 결국은 올 때가 옵니다. 생과 사, 인생이 무엇인가를 잘 생각합시다. 그런 생각도 하지 않고 살던 자는, 죽을 때가 왔을 때, 당황과 공포에 휘말리게 됩니다.

얼마나 더 오래 살겠다고, 얼마나 더 잘 살겠다고, 인간이 인간을 착취합니가? 죽으&#...Continue Reading
