Six Flying Dragons OST - Muiiya ( Is There Any Difference?) (Byun Yo Han)





Sword dance and flower-viewing,
the melody of Dohwajeon¹ is shivery cheerful
All the great works for the past 500 years² went for nothing

Fathers get stabbed to death by sword,
children get torn to death under taxes
The wail of pain is echoing through Manwoldae³
in the flying ashes (of cremated bodies)

Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya (Is there any difference)? Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya?
I’m asking the world, on deciding life and death
Is there any difference between politics and swords?

You, the nameless bird in the sky,
why are you wailing so sadly?
You can’t find where wildflowers have fallen anyway

Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya (Is there any difference)? Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya?
I’m asking the world, on deciding life and death
Is there any difference between politics and swords?

You, the nameless bird in the sky,
why are you wailing so sadly?
You can’t find where wildflowers have fallen anyway


Translator’s Notes: ¹ Dohwajeon, 도화전 : The name of Yi In-Gyem’s luxurious mansion
² This drama takes place 500 years after Goryeo’s founding
³ Manwoldae 만월대 滿月臺 : The palace of Goryeo dynasty
*According to the official SBS homepage, the song’s title “Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya” came from Mencius. (The Work of Mencius Book 1, Part 1)

Lagu ni aku dapat rasakan keperitan rakyat ketika saat-saat kejatuhan kerajaan Goryeo di mana golongan pemerintah berterusan mengaut harta sedangkan rakyat ramai yang kelaparan.
