Lee Hyun of 8eight and Park Boram have teamed up on a track that might just have a few people out there nodding their heads in agreement (once they read the lyrics).  About having a person who is emotionally supportive and loving in their lives, the song throws out there that there is more to love than just a pretty face and a nice body.  The mellow production of the song with its jazz undertones is a nice match for the singers’ voices, which have a sweet tone to them.  And while we can’t speak for the original Korean, the translated lyrics have a nice interplay, showing the difference in what people see on the outside and what they desire on the inside.

Lyrics:
They say I’m pretty these days, that I’m like a woman
They ask me, do you even have any flaws?
They say I look good these days, my friends tell me
Is there anyone out there like me?

I walk on this street while humming
I feel good today for some reason

I wanna date someone pretty
A person with a pretty heart rather than a pretty face
I wanna date someone nice
A person with a warm heart rather than a good body

Had a cup of coffee on the weekend, watched a movie I wanted to see
It’s all good but what’s missing?
A person to laugh at my boring stories
Where is that person?

I walk on this street while humming
I feel good today for some reason

I wanna date someone pretty
A person with a pretty heart rather than a pretty face
I wanna date someone nice
A person with a warm heart rather than a good body

He’s not handsome but nice-looking
She has no make up but she shines
Is he looking at me?
What if she catches me? I pretend not to see
It feels good, should I go to her/him
And carefully start a conversation?

I wanna date someone pretty
A person with a pretty heart rather than a pretty face
I wanna date someone nice
A person with a warm heart rather than a good body

I wanna have a pretty love
A person with a pretty heart rather than a pretty face
I wanna date someone nice
A pretty person, a nice person, I hope it’s you
