Yeah I’m thirsty
필요해 비트 위 surfin’
난 물 만난 물고기¹
Soak up the music
Eenie meenie miney mo
춤추는 아기 flow
Keep my passion, I gotta go
I’m still (not enough)


Yeah I’m thirsty
I need to go surfin’ on the beat
I'm a fish who met water¹
Soak up the music
Eenie meenie miney mo
Dancing baby flow
Keep my passion, I gotta go
I’m still (not enough)


11년째 독학 중
내 형광 밑줄은 배움의 미학뿐
끝이 없는 학습
부딪히고 넘어지며 나오는 작품
이 위치에서도 make it move
Make it mine, make it right
또 누군가의 favorite song
그게 나의 삶의 반, 삶의 이유, 삶의 낙
원동력으로 carry on


Currently self-studying for 11 years
My fluorescent underlining is just the art of learning
Studying endlessly
The work (of music) comes out of bumping and falling
Even in this position, make it move
Make it mine, make it right
Once again someone's favorite song
That's my life's half, life's reason, life's happiness
Carry on with (that) driving force



Bring it all
I'm doing it all

Hah! Shout out
I say ‘more’
Hah! Yeah right!
‘Cause I want some more

Hah! Shout out
I say ‘more’
Hah! Yeah right!
‘Cause I want some more


귀에 kick snare, 들림 hit that
몸이 쉴 새 없이 직행, make my mixtape
피드백 와도 get back
뭐든 달게 먹는 KitKat² 내겐 sweet 해 (appreciate)
상호 관계, 참 유익해
기름 주입해 주면 drive 해 또 난 beat에
다들 주의해, 나 부주의해
예술이 배인 멋진 그림에 취해, 계속 ‘Dali’ 들이대³


Kick snare in ears, hear it hit that
Go straight without a rest, make my mixtape
Even if the feedback comes, get back
Eat anything sweet KitKat², it's sweet to me (appreciate)
Mutual relationships are pretty useful
When the gas gets pumped up, I drive on the beat once again
You all, be attentive, I'm inattentive
Drunk on cool paintings saturated with art, keep inciting like ‘Dali’³


원해 stadium with ma fans 아직까지도
쓸어 담어 모든 트로피 그래미까지도
명예 부 다가 아니야 I already know it
My work makes me breathe, so I want MORE


I still want stadium with ma fans too
Roll in all the trophies, along with the Grammys
Fame and wealth aren't everything, I already know it
My work makes me breathe, so I want MORE


Inhale inhale exhale exhale
살아 숨 쉬는 거 같아


Inhale inhale exhale exhale
Seems like I'm alive and breathing

 

Bring it all
I'm doing it all

Hah! Shout out
I say ‘more’
Hah! Yeah right!
‘Cause I want some more

Hah! Shout out
I say ‘more’
Hah! Yeah right!
‘Cause I want some more

Yeah I’m thirsty
필요해 비트 위 surfin’
난 물 만난 물고기¹
Soak up the music
Eenie meenie miney mo
춤추는 아기 flow
Keep my passion, I gotta go
I’m still (not enough)

Yeah I’m thirsty
I need to go surfin’ on the beat
I'm a fish who met water¹
Soak up the music
Eenie meenie miney mo
Dancing baby flow
Keep my passion, I gotta go
I’m still (not enough)

NOTES

1. 1. 물 만난 물고기 is a saying for that someone is in their element like a fish in the water, the ‘met’ suggest that they get into the element.


2. きっと勝つ (kitto katsu) in Japanese means “you will surely win”. In Japan, there's a culture of gifting KitKats for wishing well. Here, it might be a possible play on words with KitKat.


3. ‘Dali’ while being a reference to the artist Salvador Dali, is probably also a wordplay with the Korean ’달리’ which means ’different’. So the alternate translation for the lyric would be:

Drunk on cool paintings saturated with art, keep inciting differently

Here is the translation of the note written by Jung Hoseok:

I'm on the way home after finishing the schedules!!!
I feel proud and great in various ways
Aside from the song release
After the pandemic started, the song(s) I was conceptualizing is complete, I came to show it to you guys and make you listen so coolly, therefore I think I feel so great.
It's the feeling of seeing the result of the efforts (I've made) so far!!
This (feeling) could be my own personal satisfaction as well !!!.. heh

I'm not sure how (the song) has been heard (by you guys) but always to my ego, I want to show you even cooler things, and as BTS j-hope, it seems that I always had the childish desire about what I can show as an individual!!!

And seems that it's today when I got those (of my) wishes..!

To all the ARMYs around the world who took in that outpouring of (my) emotions, I feel thankful thoughts and somewhat apologetic thoughts (towards you) as well!!!

The album this time is expressing those kinds of j-hope's emotions overall!!!!!!!

Starting from today, I gradually plan to show you guys those emotions of j-hope's in diverse ways!!!

I'd be thankful if you recognize this as the footing of the next step of the important process of the human called j-hope and Jung Hoseok, and hold anticipation and interest (towards it)!

I make/work on music since you guys who listen (to it for me) are there. Love you and thank you!!
🥰

Please note that I will keep working on improving the tone of this translation, therefore, this translation will keep being updated.
