Read the song’s lyric to answer questions number 1-5

By: Kim Taeyeon

Sky that pours light
(I) stand under it
Fly as if I’m dreaming
My life is a beauty

A story I’ve heard often somewhere
Ugly duckling and swan, a butterfly before it flies
People don’t know, they don’t see your wings
A new world you’ve met could be cruel

But strong girl, you know you were born to fly
Tears you’ve cried,
all of the pain you’ve felt
for the day you’ll fly even higher,
It’s to prepare you. Butterfly,
Everybody’s gonna see it soon

Sky that pours light
(I) stand under it
Fly as if I’m dreaming
My life is a beauty

Forgotten dream, I draw it again in my heart
Collect all of the times I withdrew and swallow it
Small memories wake me up one by one
It opens me up, as if it’ll fill the whole world

Past the long, long night
Want to embark on the road for a trip again
Why not? In this world,
One word that awakens my heart

Yesterday, I was alone
Countless gazes
Falling tears
I withstood another day again

Yesterday, that was a close call
All of the words that poured out
It embraced me, who was shaking, again

Sky that pours light
(I) stand under it
Fly as if I’m dreaming
My life is a beauty

My life is a beauty

Flower petals wilt
I had difficult times, but followed a small light
Distant day, let it go far, faraway
I fly splendidly

Sky that pours light
Renewed eyes (Renewed eyes)
Fly far away (Fly high, fly high)
Beauty that belongs only to me

Moment I close my eyes, Time stops
I rise again

Piano House

 

Huainan City in China hosts one of the most unusual and beautiful buildings in China, the Piano House. This incredible structure was designed by Hefei University of Technology to commemorate advancements in Huainan City.

The Piano and accompanying violin entrance are built on a true 50:1 scale, perhaps making them the largest to scale instruments in the world. The building has escalators, meeting rooms, and space to host weddings and other events. You will find tourists and locals lounging underneath the Piano on warm days taking advantage of the massive structures shadow. At night the piano and violin light up with fluorescent lighting outlining the structures.

The violin, made completely out of glass, serves as the entry to the house, linking the elevated piano to the ground. The piano portion of the house stands on three concrete legs and features a roof terrace beneath a canopy shaped like the piano’s open top.

It is unclear exactly why and for whom the house was built, but it has become a spectacle in Anhui province (located inland from Shanghai). Of course, meant to simulate instruments, the house itself probably wouldn’t make very pleasing sounds: windows cut into the body of the piano would render the reverberating chamber useless, while the vibrations from the violin’s strings might shatter the glass it’s made of.
