Taeyeon Fan Art: You Make Me Better Babe

Better Babe (English Translation) by Kim TaeYeon

After a deep breath is blown
It flutters away shining, those memories
That have grown taller than me
Stand on the shadows in the same place

Each and every day is just long
Your smile that’s pieced together
Swallows me into a sleepless dream
Me in the mirror that’s a lot like you
You make me

Better babe Better babe
Better babe Better babe
Now I know
You make me better babe
Better babe Better babe Better babe
Better Better

A non-reason, Me inside me
Making you hurt
You make me better babe
Better babe Better babe Better babe
Better Better

Without words without answers
In our last silence
It’s not it’s not
The silent tears are deeply submerged

I just hover
Like a broken toy that was thrown out
Yesterday, today and tomorrow in this place
The word love that I didn’t believe, that’s you
You make me

Better babe Better babe
Better babe Better babe
Back to you again
You make me better babe
Better babe Better babe Better babe
Better Better

Disappearing in a moment like foam
To you that surged into me
You make me better babe
Better babe Better babe Better babe
Better Better

After waking up from this dream
Everything will slowly become blurry
Even the clear scars
Will slowly become numb and be erased
We probably won’t be there, right

Better babe Better babe
Better babe Better babe
Now I know
You make me better babe
Better babe Better babe Better babe
Better Better

A non-reason, Me inside me
Making you hurt
You make me better babe
Better babe Better babe Better babe
Better Better

Disappearing in a moment like foam
To you that surged
You make me better babe
I don’t see anything
Hold my hand
You make me better babe

When I knew there’s a fan art event for Taenggu’s latest album “Purpose” just released in October on FanBook, I wanted to submit at least one entry to participate. In fact, I had ideas to make as many artworks surrounding the theme of Taenggu’s album as I could if my time would permit. Unfortunately, when I came back from my holiday trip in Penang, with only 1 week left till the submission deadline, I became practical and decided that just one focused artwork would be good enough for me, considering that I also had other pending artworks to rush.

For the theme of this artwork, it was inspired by one of her album tracks, “Better Babe”. It isn’t a kind of song which I would fall in love with immediately but it tends to gradually grow in me the more I listen to it. I really like this song because I find that if anyone tells you that your love has a positive impact on her and makes her a better babe, it’s one of the sweetest and highest compliments you could ever get as her lover. It makes me feel good as if I’m really so, so important to her as I listen to that sincere voice of Taenggu sing repeatedly “you make better babe, better babe, better babe, better babe…” to the point I feel so touched. So I was determined to have these lyrics that seem so special to me written on my artwork too.

And it wasn’t just me. “Better Babe” was also voted the number 1 favourite from the album among her fans at her recent fanmeeting in Seoul on 23rd November.

Listen to Taenggu’s “Better Babe” below.

As for the artwork style, I decided to use the same layered paper art technique which I first experimented in #55 MONTHSARY: I LOVE YOU 3000, IRON MAN TAENG artwork to recompose one of her original album concept photos below.

Interestingly, Taenggu also shared on her fanmeeting that she had nicknamed “Better Babe” as “Bebe” in short.

Haha Bebe… so cute! Of course I like it! Always like Taenggu’s silly nickname ideas. 😂💜
