I See A Star…..

Last weekend when Park Si Hoo had uploaded his photo and video on his SNS accounts on Weibo and Instagram, it popped up in my head “Ik zie een ster” and it didn’t leave me anymore. The song “Ik Zie Een Ster” by Mouth & MacNeal was the Dutch entry on the Eurovision Songfestival in 1974 and later also released and sang by the same duo as “I See A Star”.

Of course, Park Si Hoo is our Hallyu Star who has collected many stars already in the entertainment field working as a fashion as well as an advertising model and as an actor in Kdramas and movies. His star as a singer is rising since his concerts in Tokyo and Odaiba.

Park Si Hoo was born in 1978. I would like to interprete this song from 1974 as the prediction of a new star to be born. Already foreseen and felt, but not yet visible. A star shining so brightly, it can’t but open the eyes of many to see things never seen before. A star twinkling in the eyes showing a happy face like the mirror of our minds. Opening up all the beauty in life and starting a fire which will remain till the end of time.

Why this old song stayed with me and wanted me to, at least, try giving words to it in present time? It is my belief Park Si Hoo is working on a new star to add to his already gained stars. It may be not visible yet, but it is coming nearer and soon we will see the twinkling of its existence and the glare will be so clear that no one can deny!

Please, enjoy the song and its lyrics in the MV below. I dedicate this song to Park Si Hoo as I feel it is meant for him!

I See a Star by Mouth & MacNeal

The days and nights went by, but no one told me
They can be fun too, if you only see
There’s such a lot of beauty you can live for
You only need someone to open up your eyes
And you will see things never seen before

I see a star, a brand new star
It’s right there, twinklin’ in your eyes
I see a face, a happy face
It’s like the mirror of my mind

I see a star, a brand new star
It’s right there, twinklin’ in your eyes
I see a face, a happy face
It’s like the mirror of my mind

You opened up my eyes for all the beauty
The beauty we’re inhaling every day
It’s been there all my life, so it’s my duty
I won’t lose sight of it, the fire that you lit
Will keep on burning till the end of time

I see a star, a brand new star
It’s right there, twinklin’ in your eyes
I see a face, a happy face
It’s like the mirror of my mind

I see a star, a brand new star
It’s right there, twinklin’ in your eyes

Happiness now is being shared by two
I just started my life anew

I see a star, a brand new star
It’s right there, twinklin’ in your eyes
I see a face, a happy face
It’s like the mirror of my mind

I See A Star….. — 5 Comments

  1. “Prediction is very difficult , especilly if it’s about future.”[Niels Bohr] Not for you Wilma, when you strongly believe that you can see a new star soon. When your belief is linked to PSH, it’s very delightful, because he is already a star. I’ve read that any person is assigned a birth star, with certain distinct qualities and characteristics, which are applicable throughout his life. And PSH too is assigned to a birth star.But what you say, that you “can see a star” that will shine brightly , that will make us happy ,is very important . As this star will be visable when PSH will play in a new drama, makes us impatient to learn about his new project. As in each of his dramas, where he played ,he has got a star, why not a new star for the character in his new drama.Because we know that he is taking his acting really seriously, as he is taking his life too. So , Wilma I think “I see a star, a brand new star . It’s right there, twinklin’ in” my eyes. Very excellent approach to the song :”I see a star”

    • Thanks Stefi. 🙂 This has been a post with a very personal approach. Although I have often these kind of thoughts, I mostly lack the courage to share them. This time I thought I should open up, because it is my feeling and belief.

      While I was listening to songs I’ve saved before more ideas bubbled up, but sharing them would mean I have to leave my shelf and step forward in the open. No more hiding. Some do that easily, but for me it is like climbing a mountain!

  2. And thanks for sharing your thoughts , your feelings and belief about PSH. They coincide with ours for him. And he deserves to speak openly about him , such a gorgeous person, such a star who not many can be.
    Have a nice day!

  3. Wilma,thank you for sharing your thoughts, feelings and belief about PSH with us. Like you and Stefi, I also feel the same way and I truly believe PSH will be as what you believe him to be and will be. I believe PSH is not merely a star that shines brightly for himself, he shines extra brightly for all his loving fans, which is why he is so endearing to us.

    By sharing your personal feelings and thoughts with us, you have not only ‘climbed the mountain’ but have also reached the peak!

    • Thanks D Lee! Whenever I “climb a mountain” or “jump into the deep ocean”, as a way of speaking, I feel afterwards relieved I did. Still it will always be a new obstacle to take, when I am to step over my inner boundaries. I think I will never get used to that!
      Have a nice day! 😀
