How Tablo's Life Turned Around


A few years ago, netizens decided to target Tablo and send him into a depression that almost lost him his career, and his life.

Eventually, thanks to a few serious life changes and the end of a long legal battle, Tablo over came this dark time and wrote a new album after joining the YG famiy.

One of my favorite songs off his solo album explains how he's fine now, how his wife and daughter has helped him find the laughter and strength that he needed.

Please listen and read the English lyrics - its really moving!

Even if it’s a sigh, I’m thankful of my breath

Even on sleepless nights, the welcoming pillow

The applause that used to make me dream, is past

Now I become mesmerized with my daughter’s applause

I can’t say that I have lost everything

Because even after losing 99, I still find little things impressive

I’m smiling

To me, the words, “I wannna die”?

No, let it be

The things that makes me breathe is the calm rain

The sweet time wasting with friends

Red flowers, blue flowers, the cloud flowers in early mornings

Plenty of laughter flowers in the garden called, love

Bloom, my heart’s rest

The wind of Jejudo, the night lights in Seoul

Epik High’s music that I hear in the streets while walking

The eyes of my wife and my baby

Can I stop suffering now?

Can I stop fearing now?

Can I laugh just as much as I cried?

Get up and stand up

When I opened my fist, a handshake was welcoming me

When people’s applause was welcoming me as I opened my closed heart

The wrinkles in my forehead disappear

And the sky is full of smiles

Exciting the smiley glands

I swallow a mouthful of happiness

Let it go, little boy, I let it go, ma

The hopes that I wanted to grab with both of hands

I had too much hope and dreams in me

It was so high where I couldn’t reach

But I don’t wanna lose it

The closed heart is so narrow, unable to contain

It will break because of too much force

You don’t wanna see, I was ashamed

For a minute, it’ll be just a minute

Everybody makes mistakes and misunderstands

Get your mind right, go straight, balance yourself

And first, go find your love that you have lost then

find your dream, throw and gain back your confidence

Third, to my friend who helped me out a lot

Here I go

Being normal is good enough for me

I’m curious of the soap opera’s ending that I usually didn’t want to know

It was uncomfortable to even listen to music but

The artists that I like keep releasing albums

By watching comedy shows that I didn’t want to be in

I regained the feeling of laughing that I completely forgot

Thank you to all the people in the tv screen

There are still many empty notebooks that I need to fill

There are many hyung and dongseng^ that I need to take care of

There are still many questions that I haven’t asked

And many answers that I haven’t received


Every time I see Tablo on my feed or iPod, he reminds me that its often the simplest things that get us through the darkest times.
