스윙스 (Swings) ft. Ailee – A Real Man lyrics [Hangeul, Romanization & Translation]

When I listened to the music, I thought it was so cool; when I read the lyrics, I wanted to cry! 😛 This hits home too close, man. As a girl myself, I have my own concerns regarding my fellow sisters and gender-related stereotypes we’re facing everyday. So I hope this song helps me to spread the message of healthy self-esteem to every girl out there and please please if you have a dream, fight for it. Don’t settle for anything lesser than what you deserve, okay? 🙂

Kudos to the dope producer GRAY and also Swings and Ailee who lend their voice to the awesome song ❤

스윙스 (Swings) ft. Ailee – A Real Man

모두가 너에게 요구하는 건 진짜 많아

Mo-du-ga neo-e-ge yo-gu-ha-neun geon jin-jja manh-a

공부하러 학교 가는데 귀찮은 화장

Gong-bu-ha-reo hak-gyo ga-neun-de gwi-chanh-eun hwa-jang

High heels, 성적관리, 또 뭔 TOEIC 점수

High heels, seong-jeok-gwan-ri ddo mweon TOEIC jeom-su

니 지성에 대해 관심을 가진 놈이 없고

Ni ji-seong-e dae-hae gwan-shim-eul ga-jin nom-i eobs-go

부모님도 그래 ‘대충 시집가자 girl

Bu-mo-nim-do geu-rae ‘dae-chung shi-jib-ga-ja girl

아저씨긴 한데 직책 좋은 총각 만났어’

A-jeo-ssi-gin han-de hik-chae joh-eun chong-gak man-nass-eo’

예쁘지 않으면 숙녀 취급받기 힘든 사회

Ye-bbeu-ji anh-eu-myeon suk-nyeo chwi-geub-bad-gi him-deun sa-hoe

찌질이들은 왜 여자들이 성형하녜

Jji-jil-i-deul-eun wae yeo-ja-deul-i seong-hyeo-ha-nye

참 그냥 기가 차 머리 안에선 쥐가 나

Cham geu-nyang gi-ga cha meo-ri an-e-seon jwi-ga na

절대 포기는 싫잖아 오늘까지 매일 피와 살을

Jeol-dae po-gi-neun shilh-jang-a o-neul-gga-ji mae-il pi-wa sal-eul

다 깎아가며 너의 자존감을 건설했으니

Da ggak-a-ga-myeo neo-eui ja-jon-gam-eul geon-seol-haess-eu-ni

여태껏 고생한 게 결국엔 시꺼먼 ending으로

Yeo-tae-ggeot go-saeng-han ge gyeol-guk-en si-ggeo-meon ending-eu-ro

끝나는 건 당연히 싫지, 그게 뭐냐고?

Ggeut-na-neun geon-dang-yeon-hi shilh-ji, geu-ge mweo-nya-go?

현실과 타협해서 준비 안 된 젊은 엄마로

Hyeon-shil-gwa ta-yeob-hae-seo jun-bi an doe jeolm-eun eom-ma-lo

꽃 같던 날들을 다 마감하는 것

Ggot gat-deon nal-deul-eul da ma-gam-ha-neun geot

내가 여자였어도 그런 계약은 안 할껄

Nae-ga yeo-ja-yeoss-eo-do geu-reon gye-yak-eun an hal-ggeol

 

일이 꼬이고 안 풀릴 때

Il-i ggo-in-go an pul-lil ddae

울고 싶을 때는 울어도 돼

Ul-go ship-eul ddae-neun ul-eo-do dwae

또 모든 게 미워 보일 땐

Ddo mo-deun ge mi-weo-bo-il ddaen

화내고 싶으면 넌 내도 돼

Hwa-nae-go ship-eu-myeon neon nae-do dwae

이해해 나는 널

I-hae-hae na-neun neol

그래 지금 얘기해봐 다 모든 걸

Geu-rae ji-geum yae-gi-hae-bwa da mo-deun geol

들어줄 테니까 oh

Deul-eo-jul te-ni-gga oh

everything’s gonna be alright

웃고 싶을 때는 웃어줘

Ut-go ship-eul ddae-neun us-eo-jweo

 

아무리 나쁜 연애 경험을 했어도 너는 다시 또

A-mu-ri na-bbeun yeon-ae gyeong-heom-eul haess-eo-do neo-neun da-shi ddo

사랑에 빠지고, 때로는 몇 번 더 다치고

Sa-rang-e bba-ji-go, ddae-ro-neun myeot beon deo da-chi-go

아무리 똑똑하다고 스스로 생각해도

A-mu-ri ddok-ddok-ha-da-go seu-seu-ro saeng-gak-hae-do

좋은 남자란 게 뭔지 절대 불가능한 해독

Joh-eun nam-ja-ran ge mweon-ji jeol-dae-bul ga-neung-han hae-dok

자신감 많고 능력 좋은 남잘 만났더니

Ja-shin-gam manh-go neung-ryeok-joh-eun nam-jal man-natt-deo-ni

그 매력을 가지고 딴 여자와 바람 폈지

Geu mae-ryeok-eul ga-ji-go ddan yeo-ja-wa ba-ram pyeott-ji

순진한 남자 잡은 것 같아 맘이 편안한데

Sun-jin-han nam-ja jab-eun geot gat-a mam-i pyeon-an-han-de

6개월 만났더니 화를 내도 전활 안 해

6-gae-weol man-natt-deo-ni hwa-reul nae-do jeon-hwal an-hae

참 그냥 기가 차 머리 안에선 쥐가 나

Cham geu-nyang gi-ga cha meo-ri an-e-seon jwi-ga na

이 갈아, 피와 살이 막 깎이는 느낌 같아

I gal-a, pi-wa sal-i mak ggak-i-neun neu-ggim gat-a

근데 한 가진 분명해 좋은 남자는 많아

Geun-de han ga-jin bun-myeong-hae joh-eun nam-ja-neun manh-a

단, 금도 마찬가지고 찾는 건 쉽지 않아

Dan, geum-do ma-chan-ga-ji-go chat-neun geon swib-ji anh-a

널 치유할 자격 없어, 그저 상처만 줬어

Neol chi-yu-hal ja-gyeok eobs-eo, geu-jeo sang-cheo-man jweoss-eo

이제서야 이해한단 것 만이라도 알아둬

I-je-seo-ya i-hae-han-dan geot man i-ra-do al-a-dweo

널 치유할 자격 없어, 책임은 있으면서

Neol chi-yu-hal ja gyeok eobs-eo, chaek-im-eun iss-eu-myeon-seo

위로 안 되겠지만 이해한다는 걸 알아둬

Wi-ro an doe-gett-ji-man i-hae-han-da-neun geol ar-a-dweo

 

일이 꼬이고 안 풀릴 때

Il-i ggo-in-go an pul-lil ddae

울고 싶을 때는 울어도 돼

Ul-go ship-eul ddae-neun ul-eo-do dwae

또 모든 게 미워 보일 땐

Ddo mo-deun ge mi-weo-bo-il ddaen

화내고 싶으면 넌 내도 돼

Hwa-nae-go ship-eu-myeon neon nae-do dwae

이해해 나는 널

I-hae-hae na-neun neol

그래 지금 얘기해봐 다 모든 걸

Geu-rae ji-geum yae-gi-hae-bwa da mo-deun geol

들어줄 테니까 oh

Deul-eo-jul te-ni-gga oh

everything’s gonna be alright

웃고 싶을 때는 웃어줘

Ut-go ship-eul ddae-neun us-eo-jweo

 

내가 완벽해서 이 노랠 만든 건 아냐

Nae-ga wan-byeok-hae-seo i no-rael man-deun geon a-nya

대부분의 남자들? 나보다 낫다 하면 맞아

Dae-bu-bun-eui nam-ja-deul? Na-bo-da nat-da ha-myeon maj-a

27년 걸렸어, 구리단 걸 알게 되기까지

27-nyeon geol-lyeoss-eo, gu-ri-dan geol al-ge doe-gi-gga-ji

나아지고 싶을 뿐 난 후회를 다시

Na-a-ji-go ship-eul bbun nan hu-hoe-reul da-shi

느끼기 싫어 그래서 해주는 이 얘기

Neu-ggi-gi shilh-eo geu-rae-seo hae-ju-neun i yae-gi

나도 날 채찍 해야만 정신을 차리지 매일

Na-do nal chae-jjik hae-ya-man jeong-shin-eul cha-ri-ji mae-il

절대적인 답은 없어 이게 현실인데

Jeol-dae-jeok-in dab-eun eobs-eo i-ge hyeon-shil-in-de

대신 나아지려는 놈을 만나 cuz he’s a real man

Dae-shin na-a-ji-ryeo-neun nom-eul man-na cuz he’s a real man

 

일이 꼬이고 안 풀릴 때

Il-i ggo-in-go an pul-lil ddae

울고 싶을 때는 울어도 돼

Ul-go ship-eul ddae-neun ul-eo-do dwae

또 모든 게 미워 보일 땐

Ddo mo-deun ge mi-weo-bo-il ddaen

화내고 싶으면 넌 내도 돼

Translation

There’s so much that everyone demands from you
Makeup that you’re too lazy to put on when you’re going to school to study
High heels, getting good grades and TOEIC scores
No one cares about your intelligence
Even your parents tell you to just get married, girl
He is a bit older but he’s a hard worker
It’s hard to be treated like a lady if you’re not pretty in this society
Losers keep asking why women get plastic surgery
It’s unbelievable, you’re getting a headache
You don’t want to give up because every single day
You cut away at your blood and skin to build your pride
Of course you wouldn’t want all the things you worked hard for go to a dark ending and what’s that?
It’s your youthful days coming to end as you become an unprepared young mother after compromising with reality
Even if I was a woman, I wouldn’t make this kind of contract

When things get hard and it doesn’t get better
When you want to cry, you can cry
When everything looks resentful
When you want to get angry, you can get angry
I understand you
Yes, tell me everything
I will listen
Everything’s gonna be alright
When you want to smile, smile

No matter how many bad relationships you had
You fall in love again and sometimes get even more hurt
No matter how smart you think you are
It’s impossible to know what a good man is
You met a man who was confident and successful
But with those charms, he cheated on you with another woman
You met an innocent man and felt comfortable
But after dating for six months, you realize he never calls even when you get angry
It’s unbelievable, you’re getting a headache
You grind your teeth and it feels like your blood and skin are cutting away
But there’s one thing that’s clear, there are many good men
But it’s just like gold, they’re just not easy to find
They don’t deserve to heal you, they only hurt you
Just know that I finally understand now
They don’t deserve to heal you although they are responsible
It probably won’t do much but just know that I understand

When things get hard and it doesn’t get better
When you want to cry, you can cry
When everything looks resentful
When you want to get angry, you can get angry
I understand you
Yes, tell me everything
I will listen
Everything’s gonna be alright
When you want to smile, smile

I didn’t make this song because I’m perfect
Men in general, when they say they’re better than me, they’re right
It took me 27 years to realize how much this sucks
I just want to become a better person
I don’t want to feel regret again so I’m telling you this
I snap out of it only when I punish myself every day
There are no absolute answers, this is reality
Just try to meet a guy who tries to be better cuz he’s a real man

When things get hard and it doesn’t get better
When you want to cry, you can cry
When everything looks resentful
When you want to get angry, you can get angry
I understand you
Yes, tell me everything
I will listen
Everything’s gonna be alright
When you want to smile, smile
