Marry Me – 마크툽 (feat. 구윤회) Maktub (feat. Gu Yoon Heo) Guitar Tab

I have no idea who 마크툽 (Maktub) and 구윤회 (Gu Yoon Heo) are – and I’m sure most Koreans don’t know who they are too – but this song, “Marry Me”, has become really popular in Korea recently.

Just one evening in Hongdae and you will be sure to come across buskers who have this song in their repertoire. That was how I came to know about this song.

So I tried to find out more about this song. It seems to be an independent release and all I managed to find out is that the song was released in 2014 but enjoyed a surge of popularity this year.

Anyway, the song’s composer 마크툽 and singer 구윤회 appeared on a recent episode of Yu Huiyeol’s Sketchbook, which must attest to the popularity of the song. Here’s a clip:

The song’s so popular that it’s covered not only by buskers (here’s a video, another video and one more video), it has also been covered by singers and not surprisingly, sung at weddings.

Here’s the guitar tab:

Last but not least, the English translation of the lyrics:

(Update, 13 July 2017: Decided to use KBS World TV as the source for the lyrics translation.)

Marry Me

On rainy days
I’ll be your umbrella
I’ll be your light in the dark

In the cold winter
I’ll be your heater
On hot days, I’ll be the wind

I’ll stroke your head until you fall asleep
I’ll be by your side whenever you’re afraid

If you suddenly feel like leaving
I’ll leave with you no matter what tomorrow brings

Marry me
Will you take my hand?
Marry me
Will you spend the rest of your life with me?
For the rest of my life
I want to be your man
Marry me, darling
Will you marry me?

It wasn’t just for a moment
I thought about it a lot
You’re the only woman I can love

The cold and dark
The dangerous and lonely world
I want to walk with you as your partner for life

Marry me
Will you take my hand?
Marry me
Will you spend the rest of your life with me?
For the rest of my life
I want to be your man
Marry me, darling
Will you marry me?

You, who are beautiful, breathe inside me
If we could dream the same dream forever
How wonderful that would be
Trust me, marry me
Being together with you every day
That’s heaven for me
Will you marry me?

On rainy days
I’ll be your umbrella
I’ll be your light in the dark
