Throwback Thursday|Epik High — LOVE LOVE LOVE

Throwback Thursday|Epik High — LOVE LOVE LOVE

Hello, hello~ It’s Minty again with a TBT track!~ We’ve been doing alot of cute love songs with it being Valentines and the season of love~ Of course, there are always two sides to life. Where there is sweet, there is bitter. Love isn’t always happy. Sometimes it doesn’t work out and you’re left with pain. So we’re going to switch gears ang go with that kind of bitter song today~ Today’s throwback is Epik High’s 2007 hit, “Love Love Love”! It’s one of my favorite tracks of all time!

As y’all know, I’m a big High Skooler (Epik High fan). I’ll skip the artist background info since I’ve previously covered it in my [Epik High’s “Fan” post]~ You might remember that the Remapping the Human Soul album is one of my favorite Epik High albums. While I knew and loved tracks like [“Fly”] and [“Paris”], , Remapping the Human Soul is the album that made me really dive into Epik High’s music. It’s what made me a High Skool.

Artist: Epik High/에픽하이
Track: Fan
Album: Remapping the Human Soul
Release: January 2007
Genre: K-Hip Hop, Hip-Hop, Rap, K-Pop, Rock, EDM
Language: Korean

“Love Love Love” was the 23rd track, or 10t track on the second disc, of the Remapping the Human Soul album. It was their fourth studio album, and apparently the third best selling album in Korea for 2007. I remember “Fan” and “Love Love Love” were the first tracks I heard from the album. I instantly loved them. I was also really fascinated by the music videos. I remember having “Love Love Love” on constant repeat on my little iPod shuffle, and then my iPod Classic. The track itself sounds like this fun and upbeat track you can dance to. However, there’s a sense of melancholy as well. Which totally makes sense because it’s actually a rather sad song about love. It’s basically a song going through the stages of love. The happy and lovely highs, the bitter downs, and lastly the breakup that leaves one with heartache, anger, and regret.

You can find “Love Love Love” and the Remapping the Human Soul album on Spotify, here:

In 2009, Epik High released a special album called Remixing the Human Soul. It featured remixed versions of their hit songs, and was remixed by Planet Shiver. Some remixes featured different artists instead of the original featured artists; Such as Lisa for “Broken Umbrella” instead of Younha. “Love Love Love” was one of the tracks included on the album. The remixed version was renamed “Love Love Loveless” and still featured Yoongjin. The remix definitely has a more upbeat and energetic sound. It’s not bad, but I still honestly prefer the original.

Music Video & Lyrics

I really loved the music video when it came out. I was obsessed with it and kept replaying it. I even had it downloaded onto my iPod Classic. I just really like the aesthetic and the concept with the torn pictures. It looks like such a fun video, until you see the actress and remember it’s kind of a sad and melancholy track. It had been a while since I rewatched the video, but I’m kind of sad there was no high quality re-release of the video. We have plenty of high quality re-releases of live performances though~ Other than performing it with [Yoongjin], they’ve also performed this track with [Taeyeon] from Girls’ Generation/SNSD, [Younha], and [Dara] from 2NE1,

Again, despite the song sounding really fun… it’s actually a pretty bitter and melancholic track. The track is basically about being tired and drunk while looking back at love: the highs, lows, heartbreak, regret, and bitterness. Love can seem to end so painfully, but you still can’t help but keep repeating it. It can be to a point where it just feels like no one understands you or how you feel. It goes through all these little things that I feel like many of us relate to in regards to love, and failed relationships. First, it goes through the highs of love. Sometimes things seem magical, seem to be full of happiness, and we put in so much effort and our everything. You’ve done the best that you could do. However, things aren’t always perfect and happy. Love has difficult, bitter, and sad parts. Having spent everything, apologizing when you weren’t wrong, push back family meetings, avoid and lose friends, and ultimately lose the person you did all of that for. Unfortunately, sometimes things just don’t work out. What’s left is sadness, anger, regret, and bitterness. You can’t help but wonder where you went wrong when you did everything, gave your all, and loved with all your heart… only to lose everything. It’s all little things that are just super relatable.

Yoongjin:
12AM: a tired, drunk voice
2AM: the phone is coldly turned off

Hook:
No one knows how I feel
I can’t stop love love love
Though it hurts, I keep repeating it
I can’t stop love love love

Tablo:
Have you ever been in love?
Fallen in love at first sight like in a movie?
Stayed up all night long on the phone?
Bragged to the world?
Waited in the pouring rain?
Run towards him like crazy?
Watched him secretly? Gone crazy?
Pretended not to see it, despite actually seeing all of it?

Mithra Jin:
You’ve probably been in love;
Gone broke because of anniversaries
Said sorry when you’ve actually done the right thing
Stayed up all night on a love letter
Postponed a get-together with your family
Prayed to god for him to get better
Avoided your friends and lost them
Watched him walking away

Tablo/Mithra Jin:
I loved you like crazy, so why?
I did my best to treat you well, so why?
I gave you everything, but you got me going crazy
I loved you like crazy, so why?
I gave you all my body and soul
I’ve lost everything, so how?

Hook:
No one knows how I feel (Nobody knows)
I can’t stop (Don’t stop) love love love
Though it hurts, I keep repeating it (Oh here we go)
I can’t stop (Don’t stop) love love love

Mithra Jin:
Have you ever been through a breakup?
Removed your makeup in the rain?
Cut off your long, straight hair?
Held a cigarette in your hands even though you’ve quit smoking?
Avoided places in case you ran into him?
Written a letter that you couldn’t even send?
Gave him a call when you were dead drunk?
(Hello?) Been lost for words?

Tablo:
You’ve probably been through a breakup;
Hated him as much as you’ve loved him
Ripped a letter that you wouldn’t even be able to read
Deleted a number that you wouldn’t even be able to forget
Celebrated an anniversary by yourself
Burned all the photos
Thought that every single breakup song in the world was about you

Tablo/Mithra Jin:
I loved you like crazy, so why?
I did my best to treat you well, so why?
I gave you everything, but you got me going crazy
I loved you like crazy, so why?
I gave you all my body and soul
I’ve lost everything, so how?

Hook:
No one knows how I feel (Nobody knows)
I can’t stop (Don’t stop) love love love
Though it hurts, I keep repeating it (Oh here we go)
I can’t stop (Don’t stop) love love love

(I love you)

Tablo/Mithra Jin:
Crying like an idiot, getting drunk again
Grabbing onto a friend and insulting that person
Time passes by; getting drunk again
Grabbing the phone, say love

Hook:
No one knows how I feel (Nobody knows)
I can’t stop (Don’t stop) love love love
Though it hurts, I keep repeating it (Oh here we go)
I can’t stop (Don’t stop) love love love

Yoongjin:
No one knows how I feel
In fact, you’re the only one who doesn’t know
Though it hurts, I keep repeating it
Like this, we’ll run into each other again someday

BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

You can also check out the following:

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.
