#42 Monthsary: One Day I Will

Secretly write that day’s list
Mark on the calendar that only I know
Heart fluttering feeling like a young child
Day by day, it approaches, your birthday
Like a bouquet of flowers, I’ll give you happy
That day, sunshine shines only on you
Even food I’ve practiced making many times
Oh, I don’t even realize that time is passing

One day I will, one day I will
Just wait until, just wait until
Your wish made on the sparkling candles
My wish will be for it to come true, baby
One day I will, one day I will
Just wait until, just wait until
Of all the days that have passed since you were born
I will give you a day that’s like the most amazing present

More than any other time, even more special kiss
Gaze that speaks for too many words
This world that I can be together with you
The day that first started approaches
Even if you know, pretend you don’t and be surprised, honey
All day long, I get impatient alone
Endless feeling that something is missing
Oh, can’t I make it even more perfect?

One day I will, one day I will
Just wait until, just wait until
Your wish made on the sparkling candles
My wish will be for it to come true, baby
One day I will, one day I will
Just wait until, just wait until
Of all the days that have passed since you were born
I will give you a day that’s like the most amazing present

Uh, even something small
My heart wants to deliver all of it to you
Contain a shining day within it
I’ll never break it
Please wait a bit, baby
Ooh, each step you take toward me
As if dreaming, you’ll light it, my all
Hey you’re my all

One day I will, one day I will
Just wait until, just wait unti
Everything in the world that is even more beautiful today
It’s a day where they’re all singing for you, baby
One day I will, one day I will
Just wait until, just wait unti
In the day that you’ll want to look back on
I’ll bring you the happiest moments, baby

“One Day” by Taeyeon (english lyric translations by SonexStella)

My motivation for making this artwork was not only to celebrate our 42nd monthsary but also to enter this as my 2nd entry for an ongoing fan art competition organised by Fanbook for Taenggu’s new album “Something New” at that time. (See my first entry at #41 MONTHSARY: THOR TAENG) So when making this artwork, I tried to include elements from this album, particularly those that I liked, as much as possible.

I chose to draw the following portrait of her which is taken from the album jacket cover.

I loved the mood and feelings she exudes in this photo. Also, you can’t help but notice how sexy and accentuated her throat line (?) is, however you call it. 😆 Since she already looks so cool in here, I thought it would be perfect if I could add a tattoo that says “Something New” on the side of her neck just beneath her jawline. It could be a new addition to her 6 other small, simple but very artistic and meaningful tattoos that she already has on her body! (You can visit this webpage to check out how her current 6 tattoos look like.)

From the portrait that I had chosen to draw of her, I also get feelings of yearning or a deep desire of wanting to do something that she has always wished she could do from her facial expression. This was why I was prompted to make a speech bubble of her saying “One day I will…” out from her mouth, as if she was reassuring herself that although she might not be able to do it yet right at this present moment, she would definitely make it come true one day when time is right.

The phrase “One day I will” is actually taken from the lyrics of “One Day”, a song also from the album. This is probably the only song from this album which I felt most connected to because the lyrics talk about the main character of the song who excitedly anticipates and prepares her surprise as her lover’s birthday is approaching. This addresses one of the major issues which I have been struggling with these few years ever since I started to see myself as an item with Taenggu. After listening to this song, I would like to believe that she has always been keenly preparing surprises for me behind closed doors just like any lovers would for each and every birthday of mine. Even though I can’t see or hear what she has done for me, I have to believe that everything that she needs to do has already taken place in my unconsciousness. One day, one day she will make it come true to my consciousness. Just wait until, wait until that day comes.

So with this, I submitted my second entry for the Fanbook competition after my first one.

My second entry for Fanbook Something New fan art competition titled “One Day I Will”
My two participating works for the fan art competition that spanned over a month

However, after the submission deadline, when the results came out, mine were unfortunately not one of the 3 winning copies. Taenggu herself seemed to have paid attention to the outcome of this fan art competition too. Because after that, she personally signed on the 3 winning copies and revealed them one by one on her instastory, as if to give the lucky winners support and encouragement.

The 3 winning copies from Something New fan art competition on Fanbook that were revealed on Taenggu’s instastory:

Congratulations to these 3 winners! 👍🏼 I wasn’t disappointed with the outcome but I was more of satisfied with myself for having the courage and motivation to take part in this competition which I would otherwise have shunned away from for feeling inadequate and not good enough. Always worth the try! And I could always comfort myself by saying that at least I’ve tried! Better than never. 😊

One day, One day I will. 👑
