English Lyrics to ‘Sound of Winter’ by Park Hyo Shin

Sound of Winter (겨울소리) was released on 1st January 2018 as a result of Park Hyo Shin’s collaborations with composer and music director Jung Jae Il (Okja, Parasite).

Unlike the dramatic and cathartic song Wildflower (야생화), Sound of Winter is heart-warming and enchanting, especially for a wintery day. In the 2019 show Your Song, there are 2 live versions of Sound of Winter – one where Park Hyo Shin sang a part of the song to Jung Jae Il’s melodic guitar accompaniment and another of the entire song with just the piano accompaniment, compared to the orchestral version of the official song recording.

Enjoy the piano version of the song below, with the lyrics translated as naturally as possible without losing the original meaning.

2019 Version of Sound of Winter on JTBC’s “Your Song (너의 노래는)”, Piano by Jung Jae Il

별이 떨어지는 작은 창밖을 보다
잠들지 못한 밤 나를 달래보다
길었던 가을의 내겐 첫눈 같은 밤
뒤늦은 나만의 겨울이 온 거야

Looking out a small window at a sky adorned with stars,
Trying to fall back asleep on this sleepless night.
A night like the first snow after a long autumn,
My winter has finally arrived this night.

얼룩 하나 남지 않는
별이 가득히 내린 길을
나 혼자 이렇게 걷고 있어

This untouched
and starry path,
I cross on my own.

다시 태어난 겨울소리 따라 부르는
깊은 밤 나의 노래가
어디선가 잠든 너를 안아주길
Sleep in white

To the revived sound of winter, singing along,
In the night, wishing for this song
to embrace you where you sleep.
Sleep in white…

주인도 없는 이 하얀 그림 위에다
그려보고 싶은 너의 이름 하나
아무 말도 없이 하얀 숨 뱉어보다
어느새 멈춘 두 발을 떼어본다

Longing to write out your name,
Across this unnamed white canvas.

Breathing softly the wintery air,
Taking a step from the path I have stopped
.

얼룩 하나 남지 않는
별이 가득히 내린 길을
나 혼자 이렇게 걷고 싶어

This untouched
and starry path,
I long to cross on my own.

다시 태어난 겨울소리 따라 부르는
깊은 밤 나의 노래가
어디선가 잠든 너를 안아주기를
Sleep in white

To the revived sound of winter, singing along,
In the night, wishing for this song
to embrace you where you sleep.
Sleep in white…

온 세상 하얗던
그날의 우리 둘 끝없는 이야기
잠들지 못했던 그날

When everything was covered in white,
When our endless stories
Ran through that sleepless night.

다시 태어난 겨울소리 따라 부르는
깊은 밤 나의 노래가
어디선가 잠든 너를 안아주길
눈 감으면 나의 품에 네가 있어
Sleep in white

To the revived sound of winter, singing along,
In the night, wishing for this song
to embrace you where you sleep.
Closing my eyes, with you in my arms,
Asleep in white…

    You translated Park Hyo Shin’s lyrics beautifully. I’ve read other translation, but yours is more poetic and really lyrical. I especially love your translation of “Wild Flower”

    1. Hi Genevieve,

      Thank you for dropping by and leaving such kind words! I decided to share my own translations exactly because I felt other translations didn’t quite do the songs justice. I hope to share more in the future and feel free to recommend me any other songs you would like to see translated!
