  1. Please make the full translation and give us the lyrics of that song!!!!!

  2. I Iike the song, the whole ad very touching and meaningful, i cry after watched it. I like the scene after the child been slapped, he wrote on the wall "dad, you are No. 1".... very touching.

  3. I love this MV so much! The relationship between the dad and son is so touching! It's very interesting to see Steven portraying his own father opposite the little boy who acted as him. It was a weird (in a good way) feeling. The little boy is so cute and has a lot of chemistry with Steven. Unfortunately, the female lead in the MV is lacking in look-compatibility and chemistry with them. Somehow, she feels like an outsider in the MV sometimes. Probably because she looks too mature compared to Steven.
    Besides the touching story depicted with excellent acting in the MV, I also really like the song. The melody sounds so nice and the way he sang it was very soothing.
    Hope this kind of quality MV keeps coming up (with an improvement in female lead please)!

    1. I love it too. I thought performance wise, the 'mom' did ok but yeah lacking in look-compatibility and chemistry as not strong as the father-son duo. Have you listen to the whole song? http://stevenma-fanblog.blogspot.com/2014/05/stevens-ba-si.html

    2. I had, but wish there is a clearer version compared to the radio recording version. The clear music in the MV evidently does better justice to the song compared to the radio version.
