Train to Busan

Goodbye World by Jang Young-gyu

We have Goodbye World from Jang Young-gyu! From the title, it’s clear this is a sad song. Other than that, the translation of the lyrics also gives an emotional feeling, since the song was related with Seok Woo and Soo An when they were separated, because Seok Woo was slowly turned into a zombie and left Soo An.

What should I do? I am just watching you

I can’t even say a short farewell

You hold on to my cold hands

But now I have to send you away“.
