Special Prized Contest with Aspiring Korean Singer Chanwoo Bang!

Hello everyone! Merry Christmas! On this special occasion, me along with my college friend and young Korean singer Chanwoo Bang have decided to host a creative writing contest here on Penana! As part of Chanwoo’s new song ‘그런 날이 있어’, this special prized contest is one you would not want to miss!:)

Having received an international high school education at North London Collegiate School Jeju on Jeju Island, Korea, Chanwoo is a young and aspiring singer-songwriter who has a fond passion in music and singing. Moving on to college, Chanwoo has never given up his musical endeavors amidst hectic schoolwork. Despite living in a whole new environment, Chanwoo continues to write new songs and publish his works in his free time and enjoys playing the guitar at night when he is at home. Through composing various original songs, Chanwoo hopes to touch his fans with his unique voice and guitar playing, as music is something which he holds dear to his heart.

The theme of this special contest will be based on Chanwoo’s new original song ‘그런 날이 있어’. For this contest, feel free to write a short story or poem with the feelings you had whilst listening to the song – you can write about anything, it can be a short piece about a romantic story or an intergalactic universe far, far away, or even a poem about one special night when you couldn’t go to sleep. You can really write about anything...let your emotions shine through!:)

Listen to Chanwoo’s song ‘그런 날이 있어’ here! :

OWTT - Is there an english translation for this song by any chance?

once upon a star - thank you for the question! We have thought about putting up english subtitles for the music video, but it turned out if translated from Korean to English, the lyrics will be a bit weird :/ I'll talk with Chanwoo to see if I can send the English lyrics to you :)

once upon a star - I've asked Chanwoo just now! :) he is currently on a trip and he said the lyrics might sound weird if translated to english, as the song actually starts with the line "There is a day like that..." - maybe would it be alright to try writing based on the tune first?:-) If it is still quite tricky to write I can send the english lyrics to you! :)
