Korean Prom Song by Kamie Kahlo



Here's a little love song to take you all into the weekend. Korean popstars Lee Hyori amd DaeSung sing, "How Do We Get". Wouldn't it make the perfect prom song? Pretty couple, pretty song:

I’ve gone through so many shallow relationships
I thought you’d brush past like that too

But as time went by, I realised you were a little different

There was no pretense, you showed me your whole heart


Hook

I don’t wanna see you cry

When I look at you I remember my forgotten happy dreams, the young me

You always give me a smile

To tomorrow, which will be even more amazing than yesterday


Chorus

Tell me how did we get, the dream-like memories

How did we get, the painful tears too

How did we get (we get), this far

How did we get (How did we get)

It’s because we’ve walked here together


Now (now), I (I)

Won’t let go of your hand


The one person who lit up my life

While always shining like a dazzling star

You wouldn’t believe how earnestly

I’ve been wanting to find you


Hook

But I don’t wanna let you down

I was a coward, but since seeing you I’ve been growing more and more

You always give me a dream

Only for you, who’s become my future


Chorus

Tell me how did we get, the dream-like memories

How did we get, and the painful tears too

How did we get (we get), this far

How did we get (How did we get)

It’s because we’ve walked here together


Now (now), I (I)

Won’t let go of your hand


Chorus

Tell me how did we get, all the time we’ve spent together

How did we get, no matter what kind of wound

How did we get (we get), until the very end

How did we get (How did we get)

So we’ll walk together


You and me (You and me) The two of us (The two of us)

We’ll walk together from now

Today's AdelitaStyle Self Portrait: Korean by Kamie Kahlo

Where have I been? In the coming days you will see that I have been a busy little Korean girl! Just to prove it, let's start off with this collage from Lil Star's Multi-Cultural Fair. This year we decorated a presentation board focusing on current Korean music, fashion and food. While I cut and pasted photos of our favorite things, Estelle wrote an article to explain our glittery deco'd board. My fashion style was not from Korea but it was Korea-Style: I wore an F21 cardigan with that ever important shoulder detail, a Diane Medak tank with ruffle detail, Fiorucci jeans, Streets Ahead belt and a darling pair of ruffely, bowy pumps that Cherry gave me.

Here's another way to use a traditional neck tie, tie it in a bow! I can't take full credit for this cute idea, I saw it in a Korean video called, "Balloons." The boys in it were so adorable!! It's a stylist job to notice small things visually and to reinvent common uses. Take a look and see for yourself!
