Let's serenade Mr Kim. Why not? It's Christmas. By that I mean I'd like to send out some good vibes with the following light-hearted banter.
Merry Christmas, y'all!
CHRISTMAS TOAST (酒中東談)
Concerts, concerts here and there, nor any one to go
The one I did want to go
Lightning fast, oversold
Seest thou KIMDONGRYUL?
“Kingdom Gryll? I see. Rapper?”
Nay. A Piper
He sings < 기억의 습작>,<아이처럼>,<꿈 속에서>...
“Gnocchi chop-suey? Eggy Churro? Gung soup queso?”
“They sound gooey, if not inconceivable exotic food. Fusion Christmas dinner tonight?”
Just old-fashioned bakes and soup to keep warm
I am not that edgy
“Who knows? You foolhardy baker”
I shall serve a fresh strawberry daiquiri, my lady
For extra delight, rice nibbles to join in low calorie to the daiquiri
By the way, when Kim laughs, he’s Senbei Norimaki
Goofy as the next guy in a karaoke
When it’s his turn to sing, he becomes Dr Slump
His songs give some people goosebumps
When Kim hums
It's yummier than dim sum
Resonates with the smoothest gelato
My favorite crooner alive, I'd readily suggest
10,000 won, 50,000 won, K money comes in big denominations
K psyche gears toward world domination
His dreamy melody going with Salanghae, Salanghae ... and all that jazz
“What lovey-dovey, conquering-all Confucian K culture!”
“Cheese cake, anyone?”
“Unlike us outspoken Hongkongers who still count pennies”
And whisper those three little words sparingly
Otherwise, we speak in no ambivalent terms
Saying that I'd do the dishes for you
Although we said I’ll do the dishes for you
Should I do the dishes for you one more time?
Don't say the dishwasher is not love!
“You bet it's true love
When a man puts on the dishwashing gloves"
Let's raise our glasses to that
“I am one drink away from…”
酒過三巡，易吐易露 - LOL
He has a mole on his philtrum
Could it be an amulet against musical doldrums?
“God forbid if you find it sexy
'Cause he'd think you're crazy”
No, not me. I like muscles. Kidding. May be not
Those strong and powerful vocal cords
Kim is quite an artist
I am hugely impressed by his arrangement
I listen in amazement
Layer upon layer, like a Russian doll
Enthralling enough to pierce the Chinese wall
More glass clinking later
To my home girl, I made a tipsy confession
Last year, I came close to depression
From the nasty leg injury
For now, things are hunky dory
“I didn’t know,
I was so slow.”
You were always so kind
“You know I love you, my friend”
I do. You are so the person I want to drink with!
The sight of Sugar Plum Fairy?
And Kim appearing in front of the mantel? I make a dash for the mistletoe!
Fingers drumming on the piano, belting out <Rainbow Connection> Slowly
What’s So Amazing That Keeps Us Stargazing And What Do We Think We Might See?
Man of Seoul
Blue within thee
Cool as can be…
Mr Kim, stop brooding
Have some Christmas pudding
Omo! And I see Ryul dancing like Fred Astaire??
Burp! Feeling something prickly in my loungewear
No More Yielding But A Dream
Too much Maotai and sugar. Good grief
I nodded off with arms on a sizable Yule wreath
Pine branches and holly berries
Tonight, I put aside my worries
Musically, how I wish …
Oh well, now a slice of midnight quiche
As the scent of Fir, apple cinnamon lingers
Let’s call it a night for these occasional Christmas drinkers
