Boys & Girls at Asia Song Festival 2004

Hi there


So this is something I've always wondered and I don't really know why it took me so long to ask this

As you might remember, Ayu performed M and Boys & Girls at the Asia Song Festival, South Korean in 2004.
During the performance of Boys&Girls towards the end, Ayu and her dancers are running on the catwalk-thingy. It's then when Ayu sings a verse of Boys&Girls... I'm just wondering, what is she singing? To me it doesn't sound like Japanese or a 'normal' verse from Boys&Girls and it doesn't like Korean to me either (the performance is subbed so I tried to read along but I couldn't make anything of it). It sounds just really weird to me.

So does anyone know what she is singing? Is it Korean? Japanese?
(Here's the video: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x9h...-asia-so_music skip to 7:30)

THANKS in advance

WOW, that is different... I wonder what she is saying?
Are you Korean? If not and its just your second language maybe its just something you haven't heard yet?

Thats pretty cool if she did do that...
I wanna know what shes saying now! lol

EDIT:
I did catch a word: Hana... there is a meaning in japanese and korean.
In japanese it means - flower
korean - but (if used at the end of a sentence which does here...) so it might be Korean!

Oh no, I'm not Korean. I do listen to Korean music a lot so I know what Korean sounds like and I can read hangul (the Korean writing, I can read the characters but I don't know what it means ).
Like I said, I tried reading along with the Korean subtitles but I couldn't really identify any of the words she was singing...

But like you said, maybe it's something I haven't heard yet.

EDIT: I believe 'Hana' in Korean means '1'.

So I ran the subtitles through Google translator and here's what came out

'빛나기 시작한 우리 들을' = We started to shine for
'어느 누가 멈추게 할 수 있을까' = Who could do to stop
(Or if you combine these two it says: Began to shine, we could not stop for anyone)

'날갯짓 시작한 그들을 날갯짓 시작한 그들을 어느 누가 멈추게 할 권리가 있었을까' = Who started flapping its wings to stop them would have had the right to

EDIT: Those are the lyrics from Boys&Girls right?

at the very beginning of the song she says something like:
We began to shine. Someone can stop us, right?
We began to flap. Someone had the right to stop them, right?

google translate is horrible, so i wouldn't go 100% with it, but it appears to be something along those lines?

^Yes I was thinking the same thing

Yet I wonder what language she is singing then... Because if it Japanese, I dunno, it sounds so weird. (It also sounds weird for Korean though xD)

^Yeah, it's Korean. Like I said, I only translated the subtitles (which are in Korean) but it's not what she sings.

I was thinking, maybe she decided to change the lyrics the last moments, maybe that's why the subs don't match?

Isn't that just heavy accented Korean? She "sings" M on this event too... but both are lip-synch aside first and final verses
