      [KBS전주] 국악한마당 // 하윤주, 이아름 – 오래된 정원

      The setting for the performance by Ha Yoon-ju (vocal) and Lee A-reum (25 string gayageum) is the Mireuksa temple in Iksan, Jeallobukdo (province). The site which is a national treasure of Korea dates back to the Baekje kingdom (18 BC – 660 AD).

      I don’t know who wrote the song. I tried to translate.

      오래된 정원 Ancient Garden

      Wind eddies around some stone wall
      Hanging vines flutter in the wind
      Old moss is lodged above a stone lamp
      In a deep cave mountain birds rest and take flight
      ah, ah, ah, ah –

      In the misty ancient garden, white flowers bloom
      I walk alone in bright moonlight

      The breeze brushes past the foothills
      In the front garden the whispering wind plays
      As though the old owner had passed by
      It seems pleasant news is on the way
      ah, ah, ah, ah –

      In the misty ancient garden, white flowers bloom
      I walk alone in bright moonlight
