LeeSSang Champion

i never realised the story behind this song and had downloaded it mths ago as it was very pleasing to hear. i must say that i dun understand korean and rely heavily on subtitles to understand drama, variety show and songs.

the song was written after the death of a korean boxer choi yo sam who collapsed after a match and was decleared braindead on 9 jan 2009. he was a personal friend of LeeSSang, as both Gary and Gil were boxers in their late twenties. after the death of choi, it was revealed that he kept a diary of his hopes and dreams and fears. and thru the personal relationship, this song was born.

with gary simple yet touching lyrics, this indeed is a fitting tribute to a dear friend.
