Friday Fun: Hong Jin Young – “Cheer Up” (산다는 건)

FF 11-07-14

Happy Friday, Twinkles! Woohoo~! The work/study week has officially ended. 🙂

By now, you all know that I have a soft spot in my heart for heartwarming songs and music videos–especially those centering on family–and today’s selection is no exception.

This is Hong Jin Young‘s newest contribution to the music industry, and it’s at once uplifting and heartwarming as the music video portrays a daughter and a father who both struggle through life and, in the midst of their respective worries and obstacles, find strength in and for each other.

This song epitomizes what each of us hopes for when we think of family. Whether that hope is a reality or not, images of a family that forges through life together certainly motivate me to try to be a source of encouragement and strength for my family.

The more I see of Hong Jin Young, the more I am impressed by this multi-faceted woman, whose outward persona belies a woman of deeper thoughts and feelings.

Here’s hoping that this song uplifts your spirits as you face another well-deserved weekend!

And yes, I’m aware that the Korean title doesn’t exactly translate to the English title “Cheer Up,” but since the translation is appropriate for the message Hong Jin Young’s attempting to convey, I’ll willingly accept that translation. 😉 Oh! And for all you WGM fans, keep your eyes peeled for a guest appearance from her TV husband! *squee*
