through the night by iu (cover)

hello~

i hope you’re doing okay~

i am back sooner than i thought i would be, and that is nothing short of entirely thanks those of you that i heard from after my last post. i am so grateful to have gotten the honor to grow up with so many of you, and getting to connect with you through email this past week sincerely meant everything to me right now. i will leave another box below for anyone who wishes to vent a bit, needs a listening ear, needs some advice, or just wants to say hi~ i’ll certainly get back to you if you would like, and i can say that with more confidence now ๐Ÿ™‚

tonight, i’d like to give you this quick cover of my favorite song. it’s called through the night by IU.

this song has been one of my comfort songs throughout all of 2020. i have been studying korean ever since we left campus in march and it is in this hobby that iโ€™ve found massive fulfillment and joy while feeling really isolated. the more i get to know the language, the more i sing this song, the longer quarantine goes on, and the further away i feel from people and memoriesโ€“ the more this song seems to mean to me.

i’ve been having a lot of trouble creating anythingโ€“ rather i’ve recently been enjoying the things that feel sort of endless and letting it drift off without any sort of conclusion. i’ve had more of an urge to start practicing piano and practice singing again every once in a while, i’ve started reading fantasy novels for fun and reading them slowly and not trying to devour them whole, i’ve started working on music and messing with production and finishing none of my projects, i’ve been studying korean and reviewing my french a bit, i’ve been working part-timeโ€“ i’ve been doing things that i felt far too restless to do comfortably even a few months ago. and while i usually would have absolutely torn myself apart in the process of making this cover, i just tried to ground myself by remembering i’m putting this out into the world for three reasons: 1) for my mom ๐Ÿ’Œ , 2) to bring some comfort to you by showing you this beautiful song, and 3) to warm myself up to sharing things again, honoring my art and myself, rather than hiding myself away. creating at a whim and treating with a whole lot of care, and seeing them through without being too precious about it. that’s how i hope to continue moving forward~

“how did someone like you come to me? if we could be together right now, how great would that be?”

my pronunciation is still rough, but i’m excited to share this with you regardless! you can find the original lyrics here, and the music video to the original song here. i adjusted the english translations to fit my interpretation based on the translations found on genius and 1thek. i also want to specifically thank ์„ ์ƒ๋‹˜ who i have lessons with once a week~ i sang for her during one lesson and she gave me the encouragement i needed to make this cover!

please enjoy, and feel free to send along this love letter of a song to anyone youโ€™re missing โค
