Downpour IOI Forever

“Yes I Love It!” I.O.I. – Ideal Of Idol 

In 2016, Mnet created a reality girl group survival show called “Produce 101”. The show brought visually appealing and talented trainees from small and big agencies. Face offs, group missions, re-assignments, re-evaluations and elimination made the competition fierce. The pyramid of chairs, with a chair for the ‘#1’ trainee at the top shows the pressure of the rankings. Singing, rapping and dancing. In a limited time, these girls have to learn new songs and choreographies.  Even if they were in constant pressure, they were still able to produce impeccable dance and vocal performances.

Somi, Sejeong, Yoojung, Chungha, Sohye, Zhou, Chaeyeon, Doyeon, Mina, Nayoung, Yunjung. Out of 101 trainees from 46 entertainment companies, these top 11 trainees were chosen as official members of this beloved Korean girl group named I.O.I.  (Ideal of Idol).

A Successful Year With I.O.I.
In a span of one year, I.O.I. was able to release chart topping songs from their singles and 2 mini-albums (Chrysalis, & Miss Me?), won #1 spot on music programs, and receive nominations from major award giving bodies. Their catchy songs like “Pick Me”, “Crush”, “Dream Girls”, “Whatta Man” and “Very, Very, Very” were the crowd favorites. Recently, they were named as Best New Artist (Female Group) by MAMA, and Rookie Artist of the Year by Golden Disk Awards. Surely, they were one of the brightest Kpop stars of 2016.

Disbandment
Their quirky personality, varying charms, captivating visuals and outstanding talent won the hearts of fans from different parts of the world. As one of the many fans of I.O.I. , I can see their huge potential and success as a group.

Even though I.O.I. is only a temporary group meant to promote for a year, their impending disbandment brings bittersweet feelings to fans and group members. After January 31st, 2017, all members will be back to their original labels. Some members have already debuted in their respective groups, while some members will be launched this 2017 for their solo careers and new group promotions.

DOWNPOUR is  their final single, released as a farewell song for their disbandment. The heartfelt lyrics of this emotional ballad will truly make you cry. The Music video, showing their rollercoaster journey from the survival show, to participating in music programs, winning awards and performing in a huge crowd of fans; will make you feel sad, happy and proud at the same time. Like many I.O.I. fans, I want to thank the group for bringing memorable music. I also want to wish them Good Luck on their future careers.

I.O.I. have come a long way, and their achievements are legendary. Like this song,  I am still hopeful that someday, I.O.I will meet us fans again.

DOWNPOUR
I.O.I. (Ideal of Idol)

 Korean  English
이 비가 머리 위로 쏟아지면
흠뻑 젖고 말겠죠 내 마음도
머물러줘요 아직까진 그대 없이
나 혼자 이 비를 맞기엔
아직 어리고 조금 무서워
금방 그칠 거란걸
뻔히 다 알면서도 그댈 찾네요이제 그만 다 그칠까 이 빗물도
내 눈물도 비에 젖어
추위에 떨고 싶진 않아요 정말 언젠간
너무 차디찼던 빗물이
따뜻한 눈물이 되어
흘러내리겠죠 괜찮아요
금방 지나갈 소나기죠그냥 스쳐 지나가는
소나기죠 그런 감정이죠
나 정말 그대를 만나 행복했던
많은 추억들을 빗물에 잃지 않아요내리는 비가 그칠 때쯤에
그때 다시 만나요
우리 다시 웃으며 함께 있을게요[나/세] 이제 그만 다 그칠까 이 빗물도
내 눈물도 비에 젖어
추위에 떨고 싶진 않아요 정말 언젠간
너무 차디찼던 빗물이
따뜻한 눈물이 되어
흘러내리겠죠 괜찮아요
금방 지나갈 소나기죠지금은 흠뻑 젖어가고만 있죠
우산을 필 힘조차 없네요
하지만 우린 알아요
잠시만 울게요 빗물에 기대어
우리의 슬픈 눈물을
그대가 보지 못하게우리 이제 안녕

이제 그만 다 그칠까 이 빗물도
내 눈물도 비에 젖어
추위에 떨고 싶진 않아요 정말 언젠간
너무 차디찼던 빗물이
따뜻한 눈물이 되어
흘러내리겠죠 괜찮아요
금방 지나갈 소나기죠

When this rain falls on my head I’ll get all wet even my heart
Stay with me I still can’t be
In the rain alone without you
I’m still young, I’m still a bit scared
Though I know it’ll stop soon
I’m looking for youWill it stop now? These raindrops, these tears?
I don’t want to get wet with rain
And tremble with cold
Some day, the cold rain
Will become warm tears
And fall down, It’s alright
It’s just a passing downpourIt’s just a passing downpour
It’s how I feel
After I met you, I haven’t lost
The happy memories to the rainWhen the rain stops
Let’s meet again
We will smile again and be togetherWill it stop now? These raindrops, these tears?
I don’t want to get wet with rain
And tremble with cold
Some day, the cold rain
Will become warm tears
And fall down, It’s alright
It’s just a passing downpourI’m getting all wet right now
I don’t even have the strength to open an umbrella
But we know
Let me just cry for a moment
As I lean on the rain
So you won’t see our sad tearsNow goodbye

Will it stop now? These raindrops, these tears?
I don’t want to get wet with rain
And tremble with cold
Some day, the cold rain
Will become warm tears
And fall down, It’s alright
It’s just a passing downpour
