Song of the Day

The song is Expiration Date (유통기한) by Tablo. The video’s a short film, unrelated to the song/artist and taken in Boston. It’s the best video I’ve found of Tablo’s song, too. I’m a fan of his music, but he’s had a really rough life, you can read more about it here: The Stalking of Korean Hip Hop Superstar Daniel Lee (Wired).

And since the song’s in Korean, the lyrics are below the cut.

Looking at the clock, there is no time for me, now goodbye.
Looking at the calendar, there is no memory for me, now.

Of becoming a book that no one will read,
Of becoming a song that no one will listen,
Of being abandoned like a film in an empty theatre,
I’m afraid.

Looking at the phone, there is no connection for me, now.
Looking at the mirror, there is no me, now.

Of becoming a book that no one will read,
Of becoming a song that no one will listen,
Of being abandoned like a film in an empty theatre,
I’m afraid.

Of becoming a book that no one will read,
Of becoming a song that no one will listen,
Of being abandoned like a film in an empty theatre,
I’m afraid.

Lyrics translated by Eduipe and found here.
