In the world of K-Pop, it seems as though talent is sometimes forced to lurk in the shadows of popularity. This certainly seems to be true in the case of Dia, a 19-year old Korean singer who has an amazing voice, but is still relatively unknown compared to the big name idols who dominate the music industry. Heck, the poor girl doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page (or at least, not one that I could find) and she mostly sings covers of other artist’s songs due to the lack of her own—I believe she has only released two mini albums thus far. The covers are awesome by the way; I highly recommend checking them out on Youtube.

In light of the recent Cheonan ship sinking tragedy, Dia wrote the lyrics to a new song, Goodbye, to commemorate the victims of the incident. She stated:

There were so much bad news like the Cheonan tragedy in 2010. It must be so difficult to let go of someone you love so much…. When I heard about stories of those who had to go through these tragedies, I wrote these lyrics spontaneously because I wanted to sing from their point of view. I lack in skill, but the fact that so many people are listening to the song tells me that they feel the same way. I hope these feelings will help alleviate the families of the victims even a little. If the album is officially released, I would like to donate all its profits to the Cheonan charity.

You can listen to the song here:

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a version with English subtitles, so we’ll just have to make due with understanding by listening to the emotions that Dia clearly conveys with her voice while singing this song. That’s what I really love about music—language barriers don’t mean anything, because at the core of the song is human emotion, which we can all relate to. The phrasing, dynamics, and above all, Dia’s voice really help emphasize the raw passion behind her lyrics. She really is too modest, especially when she claimed that she “lack[s] in skill.” This song is simply gorgeous.

What do you guys think of the song?
