Song 1: Magic In You

  • Korean Lyrics by: Kim Eana
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Ji Chang-wook, Sondia, Ye.Z, Lee Yeseul
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

A story hard to believe
A face you think
You’ve only seen in your dreams
A strange and amazing story
That you wait to hear
At least once in your life
I want to dance a dance
That’s frightening but also enchanting
I want to go
Wherever the tangled road leads me
A road with no start or end

This is not a dream
This is your imagination
This the darkness under the light
Mess it all up
Everything you’ve believed in

You’re not in a dream
This is your imagination
Pinch yourself
Take a step to whichever direction
Yesterday has never
Once existed anywhere
The surprising true face of this world
That exists behind what’s visible

This is not a dream
This is your imagination
This is the darkness under the light
Mess it all up
Everything you’ve believed in

I’m not dreaming
It just all seems different
This is not a dream
This is your imagination
This is the darkness under the light
Mess it all up
Everything you’ve believed in


Song 2: My Dream Family

  • Korean Lyrics by: Seo Dong-seong
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Choi Seung-eun
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

I always told myself
Not to cry
Even when I’m sad
Scared that someone might know
What I’m thinking
When it’s all a lie
Someday in the future
Will I be happy
Like in a pretty fairy tale
Will the smiles
Wiped out by pain
Come and hug me?
When that day comes
I wish I could see the love
That I have been so desperately
Searching for
Without having to fall asleep
May we be together
Every single day
Closer than the sound of my own breath
Enduring was the easiest thing to do
Because I know that I can’t have it
I wish someday
It will appear
In front of me


Song 3: Do You Believe In Magic?

  • Korean Lyrics by: Kim Eana
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Ji Chang-wook
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

Everything was always here
You couldn’t see because you’ve forgotten
Your eyes sometimes deceive the world
Just because something is hidden
In the dark
Doesn’t mean that it’s gone
Turn on the lights
Choose the path not taken
No need to be afraid
Question everything that you’re used to
Isn’t it nice to see yourself
At the beginning?
You, without any scars
Or pain?
Fear is essentially

A shadow you grow within yourself
They are things
That may disappear in a second
Lift your head up when the road is blocked
Look at the sky
That doesn’t need roads
Don’t fall for the lies
That whisper and tell you to crouch
Those dead words of darkness
Must have hurt
But you are stronger now
Believe in yourself
Choose the way you want to go
You’re already there
Pick the brightest smile and practice
Isn’t it nice to see yourself
In this moment
Where no darkness
Can stop you
Now


Song 4: Don’t Make Me Dream

  • Korean Lyrics by: Kim Eana
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Ji Chang-wook and Choi Sung-eun
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

It feels like I could touch you
If you just believed
It feels like I’m almost there
It hurts because you seem so comfortable
Leaning back into sadness
I’m someone
Who’s been in the dark for awhile
So I don’t really need the light
I feel that we have no choice
But to live life
In our own way
You would understand me if you were me
All the things that I desperately want
Only make me sad
I only wish
For my day-to-day
To be steady and stable
Waiting always
Makes me tired
A dream that will bloom someday
A dream that will bloom right now
I must bury it in my heart
And live through today
Please understand
My words someday
Even if it’s not today


Song 5: I Mean It

  • Korean Lyrics by: Kim Eana
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Hwang In-youp
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

It’s a good time
To be together side by side
Not too fast
Not too hasty
And you’re a good person
Even though I don’t know you very well yet
You’re a good person to me
So what I’m saying is
I want to know more about you
I’m more serious
Than you think right now
Oh, all of my nights are
Full of you
I can’t
Stop this feeling anymore
I feel like the world is encouraging me
Isn’t it dazzling?
Us, in this sunlight
And wind
Do you want to go?
Whatever, wherever that place may be
Do you want to go with me?


Song 6: Merry-Go-Round

  • Korean Lyrics by: Kim Eana
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Ji Chang-wook and Choi Sung-eun
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

Seeing something with your eyes
Doesn’t always mean it’s true
You’re only seeing what you believe
Do you remember the brilliant world
You used to see when you were a child?
Us, back in those days?
I believed in myself more
And could become anything
Tomorrow was always
More exciting than today
Even on cloudy days
I would wait for the sun
Holding in my heart
The dreams that would come true one day
In the dark of the night
The only thing that grows
Are the excuses that seem even more
Convincing than they did yesterday
I know you’re really only trying
To run away
Perhaps we could have run down
Those same paths
Where we’d once fallen down
I can believe in myself again
And can become anything
Tomorrow will always be
More exciting than today
Beyond those clouds
The sun’s waiting to shine
I can always remember it
Remember it
I can feel
The dreams that will blossom again
Are right here
I’ll draw myself on a day as white as snow
With no reasons to back down
No reasons to feel small
Again with unwavering light
With any and every color I desire
I’ll paint myself in
I can believe in myself again
And can become anything
Tomorrow will always be
More exciting than today
I met myself again
And I won’t let go of that hand
My sparkling name calls out to me
Beyond those clouds
The sun’s waiting to shine
I can always remember it
Remember it
I can feel
The dreams that will blossom again
Are within me
In my heart
Feel my dream


Song 7: A Curse Of Asphalt

  • Korean Lyrics by: Seo Dong-seon
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Ji Chang-wook
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

Mere happiness is simple
Because you only need
To look straight ahead and run
Because you never trip
Over your feet and fall
Instead, you can’t choose which direction
Instead, you can’t stop when you want to
All you have to do is do as you’re told
Are all the things you have
The things you want?
Are all the things you long for
The things you want?
Ask yourself
If your beating heart
Is beating
For yourself
Stop
Who are you living for?
It’s just an inescapable trap
Who knows where you’re even headed?
Maybe it’s not even the real you
Who keeps on going
In that direction
All you are
Is a wind-up toy
All you can do is smile
For whoever that might be
Why do we keep running
In this ice-cold world?
Shake up your frustrated heart
And wake up
Listen to whether your screaming heart
Is beating
For yourself
Stop
It’s not too late
Muster the courage
To escape


Song 8: Have A Good Night

  • Korean Lyrics by: Seo Dong-seon
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Choi Seung-eun, Hong Jung-min
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

An evening where the sunlight has left
After playing
A shadow standing all by itself
Cries for awhile
Because it has lost its way
On a road that someone once showed it
Even as the stars
Are just beginning to nod off
She wakes up the sleepy night
With a shake
Asking for one small favor
Before it falls asleep
Asking it to light up this path
Is the girl
That I’d always hoped to be
Somewhere far off at the end of this road?
Do I have to make it
To the end of that long road
To become that girl
I had hoped to be?
The night then tells her
That she should get to bed
Good night
Childhood dreams
Through a finger-wide crack
In the window
A sense of longing
Slowly creeps its way in
When it reaches my lips
And I try to call its name
All it leaves are tears
This song
That we’re dreaming of on this night
I hope that we’ll cross
The darkness in the sky
To greet the happiest of mornings
And all of it will come true
The night then hugs her
And says she should go to bed
Good night
Childhood dreams
My past days
Goodbye


Song 9: Consolation

  • Korean Lyrics by: Seo Dong-seong, Seo Yi-jun
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Choi Seung-eun
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

Maybe it was too much
To ask for the world to embrace me
Is that the child
Who would stomp her little feet
Doing well?
Did you manage to overcome
All of the longing
That you’d asked to leave you alone?
It’s too hard to bear that burden alone
Even all of those painful dreams
All of the things we couldn’t talk about
And this day we spent together
We’ll fold it all into a white paper boat
And send it into tomorrow
When we meet again
After crossing the wide
And treacherous sea
I hope that my future self
Won’t be as naive or weak as I am
And will tell me
That I’m happy
Goodbye for now
Until the day
We meet again


Song 10: I, As A Grown Up Or A Child

  • Korean Lyrics by: Kim Eana
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Choi Seung-eun
  • Netflix English translation by: SC
  • Episode 6, Song 1

Rather than wanting to believe
I want to say I actually believe
But I’m still
Too scared
No, I’m
Greedy
Beneath my desire
To fly
There is a me
That knows I can’t fly
A foolish me
That is crouching somewhere
Between being a child and an adult
Without a doubt
You make me happy, but
Perhaps it’s that
I want to hide for a little while
Under the shadow
Of dream-like magic
I hate my trembling self
Who can’t take a step
Anywhere
Perhaps it’s that
I want to forget for a little while
All these things
That are like a dream, a lie
I hate my stumbling self
For not being able to decide
On anything


Song 11: Annarasumanara

  • Korean Lyrics by: Kim Eana
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Ji Chang-wook, Choi Seung-eun
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

I don’t think it’s that you came to me
You were waiting, and I noticed you
That was something close to magic
Me believing in the world once more
When I pretended to give up
With my head down
There were words
Hanging at the tip of my feet
Maybe, just maybe
Something unbelievable might happen to me
Maybe
Some coincidences
Are a long wait
Desperation
Becoming sounds
And traveling afar and coming back
To brighten up today
Once more
Desperate beliefs
Take shape
And when I hold them tight in my hands
The world, once again
Is on my side
Desperate beliefs
Become the wind
And when it blows
Into my arms
Right next to me
I feel
That I am not alone
I can see myself
I’ve grown this much


Song 12: Fantasy

  • Korean Lyrics by: Lee Chi-hoon
  • Music by: Park Seong-il
  • Performed by: Various
  • Netflix English translation by: SC

When you were young
You spread the wings of your dreams
And your heart
Would shout out of excitement
But why
Do your dreams now rush
To draw the line in advance
And drop their heads?
The stronger I resist
Saying that it’s silly
It resonates even louder
See, your heart just fluttered
Make your own fantasy
Spread your worn-out hopes
That you crumpled and put away
Sincerely, sincerely
When I believe in myself
I finally found out
The secrets of all that magic
If you just break out of the mold
Of the word “destiny”
There is a world
Just for you
Make your own fantasy
Spread your worn-out hopes
That you crumpled and put away
Sincerely, sincerely
When I believe in myself
I finally found out
That every second right now is actually
Make your own melody
I want to hear your own song
Not anyone else’s
Sincerely, sincerely
When I believe in myself
I finally found out
That every second right now is actually
Fantasy
