Oh nado moreuge
Dalkomhae nan chimi goyeo igeon sarang maja
Neol hancham noryeobwa
Nae sone ttuk tteoreojigil gidarigo isseo

Oh even without me knowing
It’s sweet, my mouth waters, this is definitely love
I’ve been staring at you for a while
Waiting for it to fall into my hands

Gatgo sipeo sonswipge
Nangmanjeogin fairy tale
Sadarireul oreul ttae
Du bararae nan ajjilhae

I want to have it with ease
Romantic fairy tale
While climbing the ladder
Below my feet, I start to get dizzy

Heona jom deo gilge pareul ppeodeodo
Dachi ana dwikkumchireul deureodo
Domujiga sone jwil su eomneun love
Oh, ireodaga naman dachigesseo
Yeah, you’ll hurt me

Even if I stretch out my arms a bit more
I cannot reach even if I lift my heels
No matter what I do, love that cannot be held in my hands
Oh, if it goes on like this, only I will get hurt
Yeah, you’ll hurt me

Pureut ssapssareumhae I don’t wanna taste
Mwo geuri dalkomhajin aneul geot gatae
Seorigeun gamjeongdeuri I just feel afraid
I’ll never bite, I’ll never bite the pain

It’s bittersweet, I don’t wanna taste
Does not seem like it will be that sweet
Unripe feelings, I just feel afraid
I’ll never bite, I’ll never bite the pain

Sour nunmul nage sikeumhan mat
Sour geureon ge manyak sarangimyeon
Matbogo sipji ana I just feel afraid
Love is sour, love is sour grapes

Sour, such a sour taste that it brings out tears
Sour, if such a thing can be love
I don’t want to taste it, I just feel afraid
Love is sour, love is sour grapes

Nuni seuchimyeon
Gakkeumssigeun mam kkeuchi jom tteolligido haesseo
Cheoeum neukkyeoboneun heart
Han ip jeongdo kkaemundamyeon eotteolkkado haesseo

If my gaze passed by
Sometimes the end of heart did tremble
Felt for the first time, my heart
I did wonder what it would be like to take just one bite

Bulgeojineun yeolmaee
Siseoneul da ppaetgin chae
Gaji kkeute dallin grapes
Daldalhalkka sangsanghae

The sight of the reddening fruit
Grabbing all my attention
The grapes at the tip of the branches
I wonder if they’re sweet

Heona han georeumssik georil jopyeodo
Neoui soneul jabeul suneun eomneungeol
Sadari jeo neomeo wie noin love
Oh, naman gwaenhi sangcheobatgin sileo
Yeah, you’ll hurt me

Even if I take a step closer
I cannot hold your hand
The love that is placed way above the ladder
Oh, I don’t want to be the only one getting hurt just like that
Yeah, you’ll hurt me

Pureut ssapssareumhae I don’t wanna taste
Mwo geuri dalkomhajin aneul geot gatae
Seorigeun gamjeongdeuri I just feel afraid
I’ll never bite, I’ll never bite the pain

It’s bittersweet, I don’t wanna taste
Does not seem like it will be that sweet
Unripe feelings, I just feel afraid
I’ll never bite, I’ll never bite the pain

Sour nunmul nage sikeumhan mat
Sour geureon ge manyak sarangimyeon
Matbogo sipji ana I just feel afraid
Love is sour, love is sour grapes

Sour, such a sour taste that it brings out tears
Sour, if such a thing can be love
I don’t want to taste it, I just feel afraid
Love is sour, love is sour grapes

Chakgageun ma
Ttaki neol joahan jeok eopseunikka
Jogeumdo aswipjiga antanikka
Naega nal songnyeo all day, all night, yeah

Don’t be mistaken
I didn’t exactly like you
And I don’t feel even a bit sorry
I fool myself, all day, all night, yeah

Ajik eoseolpeuge ikji aneun grapes
Amado naegen ttaega anin geot gatae
Pureuthage ajik seorigeun ne scent
I’m feeling scared, I’m feeling scared, yeah

Grapes that haven’t ripened yet
Looks like it is not the time for me
It’s still raw and unripe, your scent
I’m feeling scared, I’m feeling scared, yeah

Sour nunmul nage sikeumhan mat
Sour geureon ge manyak sarangimyeon
Matbogo sipji ana I just feel afraid
Love is sour, love is sour grapes

Sour, such a sour taste that it brings out tears
Sour, if such a thing can be love
I don’t want to taste it, I just feel afraid
Love is sour, love is sour grapes
