[Korean:]

표정이 없는 그 여자
모두가 미워하는 그 여자
당신도 알지 그 여자
오 가엾어라 그 여자
모두가 무서워 해 그 여자
당신이 아는 그 여자

재밌는 얘기 하나 할까
(어쩌면 슬픈 얘길 지도)
믿거나 말거나 한 가벼운 얘기죠
(부디 비밀은 지켜줘요) 아 글쎄 말야
그 여자 있죠
무시무시한 그녀에게
푸른 날 하늘처럼 새파랗게
(웃던 때가 있었다네요)

남자는 물론 여자들도
사람이 아닌 것들까지
전부 반해 사랑에 빠질 만큼
그 웃음이 예뻤다나요
꼬까옷 입고 천진하게 재잘거리며
지금 핏기 없이 메마른
뺨엔 생기가 돌더래요
Oh red queen

웃음이 예쁜 그 여자
모두가 사랑하는 그 여자
당신도 알지 그 여자
모두가 사랑하는 그 여자 (you know)

아름다워라 그 여자
모두가 예뻐라 해 그 여자
당신이 아는 그 여자
모두가 사랑하는 그 여자

얘기를 이어 가 볼까요
(한 번 더 짚고 넘기자면)
이건 어디까지나
가벼운 얘기죠
(괜한 오해는 말아줘요)
그 여자 말야
아주 오래전 슬프게 우는 아무개의
서러운 등을 쓸어준 그 손이
(믿을 수 없이 따뜻하더래요)

애들은 물론 어른들도
생명이 없는 것들까지
전부 반해 사랑에 빠질 만큼
마음씨도 예뻤다나요
아무리 작고
초라한 걸 바라볼 때도
지금 총기 없이 우울한 눈은
반짝 빛나더래요
Oh red queen

표정이 없는 그 여자
모두가 미워하는 그 여자
당신도 알지 그 여자
모두가 미워하는 그 여자 (you know)

오 가엾어라 그 여자
모두가 무서워해 그 여자
당신이 아는 그 여자
모두가 미워하는 그 여자

그 여자의 붉은 머리
그보다 붉어 생채기 난 어디
눈에 가늘게 선 핏발이
누가 그 이유를 물어 주려나
저기 왜 화를 내나요
저기요 왜 악을 쓰나요
슬픈 그 여자의 붉은 머리
그 보다
더 더 더 더 더 더 붉은 어디

웃음이 예쁜 그 여자
모두가 예뻐라 해 그 여자
당신도 알지 그 여자
모두가 사랑하는 그 여자

오 가엾어라 그 여자
모두가 무서워해 그 여자
당신이 아는 그 여자

하고 보니 시시하군요
터무니없는 이야기죠
믿거나 말거나 한 실없는 얘기죠
그냥 모두 잊어버려요

[English translation:]

That girl with no expressions
That girl everybody hates
That girl even you know
That girl is oh so pitiful
That girl everyone is afraid of
That girl you know

Should I tell you a funny story
(It might be a little sad too)
Believe it or not, it's a lighthearted story
(Please keep this a secret) Ah, the thing is
That girl
That despicable girl
There was a time she used to laugh
(As deep blue as a blue day)

Boys obviously but also girls
Even the things that aren't human
Everybody fell for her, fell in love with her
Her laugh was that beautiful
Wearing a gala dress, innocently chatting
That pale, dried up cheek
Used to be full of life
Oh red queen

That girl whose smile is so pretty
That girl everybody loves
That girl even you know
That girl everybody loves (you know)

That girl who is beautiful
That girl everybody calls pretty
That girl you know
That girl everybody loves

Should I continue this story
(If there was one more thing to reveal)
Up to what point should I tell it
It's a lighthearted story
(Please don't misunderstand)
You see, that girl
A long long time ago to a man who was crying sadly
She swept her hand across his back
(You wouldn't believe how warm it was)

Children obviously but adults too
Even the things that don't have life
Everything fell in love, fell in love with her
Her heart was that beautiful too
Even when she gazed
At the tiniest, poorest of things
Those passionless, depressing eyes
Used to sparkle so bright
Oh red queen

That girl with no expressions
That girl whom everybody hates
That girl even you know
That girl whom everybody hates (you know)

That girl is oh so pitiful
That girl whom everyone is afraid of
That girl you know
That girl whom everybody hates

That girl's scarlet hair
Somewhere something more red
Made her eyes so thinly bloodshot
Is someone going to ask her the reason
Why is she getting angry
Why is she being wicked
That sad girl's scarlet hair
Somewhere something
More more more more more red

That girl with the beautiful smile
That girl who everybody calls pretty
That girl even you know
That girl everybody loves

That girl is oh so pitiful
That girl everybody is afraid of
That girl you know

Well this is trivial
It's an absurd story
Believe it or not, it's a silly story
Everybody just forget it

IU Red Queen Comments
  1. Rabia Siddiqui

    OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE. SHE LITERALLY COPIED THE COMPOSITION FROM PAKISTANI COKE STUDIO SONG *ROCKSTAR BY ALI ZAFAR*

  2. ACLT511

    Both Hara and Sulli were called beautiful and were so happy and bright at the begining of their careers, the bad comments and the pression of horrible humans behind a pc/pone devoured them! And they had a pitiful and really horrible ending! 💔😢

  3. Raisa Rosé

    Go hara also passed away

  4. シ라온선배

    진리씨 부디 그곳에서 잘 지내길바래요. 가사가 너무 설리네요,,

  5. 살앙

    레드퀸 복숭아 ..아이유와 유애나는 다 알고있었죠 이게다 설리를 위한 곡이라는걸

  6. 다다

    재작년까진 이노래들으면 박근혜가떠올랐는데......

  7. Rostom Tero

    While watching this the english lyrics makes me think of sulli,

  8. The Might of Demacia Garen

    IU rewrites the lyrics of Zion.T's rap part at her recent love poem concert for the tribute of Sulli.

    "Fill up a black martini

    Fill up the glass for the queen without pity
    Made her eyes so thinly bloodshot
    Will she smile at the world one more time?
    Hey, don't bother queen no more
    Please don't wake queen up no more
    Red queen's going back go on
    My queen keep it up go on
    Fill up a black martini
    Fill up the glass for the queen without pity
    A bouquet of flowers in the dark
    I give her lullaby bye bye bye
    Bye, my majesty"






    Fill up a black martini
    (블랙 마티니 한잔을 다시 채워)
    Fill up the glass for the queen without pity
    (동정하지말고 여왕을 위해 잔을 채워)

    눈에 가늘게 선 핏발이
    한번더 세상에 웃어주려나

    Hey don't bother queen no more
    (더 이상 여왕을 괴롭히지마)
    Please don't wake queen up no more
    (부디 더 이상 여왕을 깨우지마)
    Red queen's going back go on
    (붉은 여왕이 다시 돌아올거야)
    My Queen keep it up go on
    (내 여왕은 계속 군림할거야)

    Fill up a black martini
    (블랙 마티니 한잔을 다시 채워)
    Fill up the glass for the queen without pity
    (동정하지 말고 여왕을 위해 잔을 채워)

    어둠에 가득 핀 꽃다발이

    I give her lullaby bye bye bye
    (그녀에게 자장가를 불러줘야지 안녕 안녕 안녕)

    Bye my majesty
    (안녕 나의 황제여)

  9. spicaspicx jkjmyg

    Fill up the glass for the queen without pity
    Made her eyes so thinly bloodshot
    Will she smile at the world one more time?
    Hey, don't bother queen no more
    Please don't wake queen up no more
    Red queen's going back go on
    My queen keep it up go on
    Fill up a black martini
    Fill up the glass for the queen without pity
    a bouquet of flowers in the dark
    I give her lullaby bye bye bye
    Bye, my majesty"
    IU just changed her lyrics during her concert 😢

  10. The Might of Demacia Garen

    Iu changed the rap part and rewrite it in recent concert, tribute to our dear Sulli

  11. A K

    Making me mad about man rap part a lot

  12. I Ship It

    If IU wrote 2 songs for her friend that means she really loved her...like family. If someone you love so dearly dies the pain close to unbearable. Pray for IU wellbeing and all the other k-artist. Bible says words are strong and can be used for good or evil. I just can't comprehend why people chose evil? What do you gain by hurting someone? I know it's a problem around the world but korean people are really good with their malicious comments, its frightening.

  13. victrola2007

    True friend who loved and supported her Sulli in every way. Sometimes it's impossible to fix all hurts. IU is a true friend. 👏💐 the last line may be re-written "it's Sulli story". If only knet trolls would learn. 💔

  14. 잉옹

    진리언니 보고싶다 많이 진짜

  15. diamond sunlight

    Sulli 😭😭😭😭😭😭

  16. viktoriia sarbhgaz

    Sulli 😭😭❤

  17. 김가루

    노래는 웃는데 가사는 우네

  18. viniisea

    Rest in peace sulli ❤
    Stay strong IU ❤

  19. Jaehyun girlfriend

    This song making for sulli 🌷

  20. Alleona Marie

    Listening to this now kinda gives different feeling...It makes me sad.

  21. cik far ams

    I dont know why, but I hope IU will comeback with counter attack songs to all the cyberbullies..I hope IU will shoot all of them with her amazing songs..lets support IU no matter what happen.

  22. Helly El

    Have anyone else noticed the lines "a long long time ago to a man who was crying sadly she swept her hand across his back. You wouldn't believe how warm it was"? If that is what i think it is and im not overthinking now it's double sad, shit...

    edzia13131

    And what do you think it is about?

    barbara

    @edzia13131 jonghyun

  23. nicodemouz kntet

    watch IU closely from now on, she gonna burn the world down.

  24. Edge Ruiz

    I'm here for sulli

  25. Sam Rao

    iu clearly loved sulli to bits if she wrote two songs about her. i really pray that sulls atleast knew how much iu adored her when she was still alive 😔

  26. riya Chatterjee

    Sleep well there sulli.... nobody will hurt you now😔😞

  27. crappy firedog

    That girl everyone hates

  28. imme

    I don't wanna raise an issue, but now I'm more worried about IU, she lost Jonghyun, in her last year's speech she said the feelings that Jonghyun felt, she can relate to it sometimes. Also her song BBIBBI(삐삐) is a song against the malicious comments made against IU. Now she lost Sulli, two friends already. She must be feeling worse at the moment. Please always and always refrain from commenting malicious comments against artists. if you can, then never PM them, if you don't like them just don't comment on their pictures. or whatever that is.

    cik far ams

    KakaoM made statement that they will protect IU from malicious and harsh comments...hope IU will doing fine and produce great songs..

    yellow daisies

    I feel so worried for her too, she's had to bury two friends already, that's so horrible, I hope she has a lot of love from her family and friends during this time, she deserves to feel happy and loved, just like Jonghyun and Sulli did.

    Skyblue Icecream

    the thing is IU said artists are meant to heal and we should hold on to that kinda promise that she will stay for a long long time hahah she is very strong afterall i believe she knows what to do as a rlly wise woman of our century

    taetaeee _armyyy

    And now she lost goo hara 🥺♥️

  29. Rinielle 아리엘 Choi

    my heart really can't handle this.... R. I.P Sulli
    I hope anyone who said hateful things back at Sulli could have Karmaa
    This song suits her so well.....R.I.P Sulli

  30. ounrida kong

    She helped her friend through her songs

  31. Heart Shaker

    I hope IU could sing this in acoustic version :((( Sulli-ah you are free now😭

  32. Nima Kv

    Prerna Sinha

  41. Angela Azarcon

  42. Tasmee Aziz

  48. Himani Rawat

    rip sulli, me commenting here won't change anything but this is all i can do, i love you

  49. Iran Leon

    I've had this song stuck in my head for like two weeks, hearing today's news makes it harder to listen to this song

  50. Gracella Chang

    ok basically for those who hated her in the past also who are pretending to be sad rn, admit it y'all a murderer

    xheralt

    the downside is, if they think they're powerful enough to kill idols, they might start trying _harder..._ for the lulz.

    Sky Cookies

    xheralt that’s very scary because they can influence or manipulate someone’s mind

    chobopanda

    Call them out,
    Block them,
    Report them for abuse.

    You're not going to reach them with reason because they've half-convinced themselves that they are "better," but it's easy to limit their power over others.

  51. sygee

    you did well, sulli. ❤️

  52. Hung Nguyen

    Ji Eun, dont feel sad, Jinri will be better in heaven with emotional huges from Jesus
    Stay strong IU, and rest in peace my peach Sulli

  53. Jaisa Ramayla

    knowing that she wrote this for Sulli it made more sense now

  54. Christine Redge

    From peach to red queen 😭 rip sulli😭

  55. rfg bcs

    I find this song sad (even tho the song is jolly) when i first knew it thinking about Sulli and became sadder after hearing the unfortunate news about Sulli's death. Everyone should listen to this song. People are hated for nothing.

  56. Mochi Nim

    I love listening to this song. It hurts in so many ways that the person which this song is dedicated to is not here anymore.


    Rest well, angel.

  57. fox rain

    I remember thinking, how tHis song was already so sad back then, and it just becomes even sadder now... RIP Sulli. I hope IU, and all those who were close to Sulli, her family, her best friends, her colleagues, and her fans too, will stay strong through this. Seeks help if you need help. There will always be someone who cares and will listen.

  58. -Saffie -

    "Those passionless, depressing eyes used to sparkle so bright"
    It's alright now, Sulli-ah. You did well, you don't have to pretend it's all okay. All your tears, let it go, you're free.

  59. JC Maglipon

    Rest in peace Sulli

  60. JULiA

    Rip sulli

  61. Gai Styles

    She wrote this for Sulli. #RIPSulli

  63. Megha Liz Varghese

    Lord, this song is hurting me! My poor girl! My love! How badly do I wish that I was there with you! 😭. 🙏

  64. Mist Eleanor Phoenix

    I'm so heartbroken. Please if you're going through a hard time reach for help. If you need someone to talk to, I'm here

  65. Rachel E.

    I'm here after the news :(
    Someone said that IU wrote this because of a drawing Sulli made. The song is even more sad now. Love you always, Sulli 💜

  66. Didiki From N’city

    I’m here after hearing about Sulli’s passing. This hurts so much, she was such a beautiful angel. This cruel world doesn’t deserve her. Angel, rest well🥀

  67. Cristina Cabansag

  68. fatehah ghani

    Rip sulli

  70. ChrisBrengel

    +Jenirus Thanks for the translation! IU's lyrics are very meaningful.


    A mambo in K-pop! Props to IU for being creative!

  71. Kriya Mavi

    Love IU and Sulli friendship... Both girls are real good, innocent, Best friends... No one broke both friendship.. 😍 💜💜

    edzia13131

    and look at what happened now 😭

    A K

    Wish Sulli only saw these kind of love in comments ...

  72. blink

  75. 다솜

    이 노래 들으면 설리 생각난다..

  76. Trying Duck

    It's so fitting that IU weote this thinking of Sulli. The girl the whole nation loved until she herself fell in love. Now they just love to hate her.

    Julie Cai

    @Trying Duck Even before that didn't people hate her for being "lazy" on stage and for cursing on Runningman. Wasn't she pretty much bullied out of f(x)?

    spicaspicx jkjmyg

    @Julie Cai i remember the lazy dance on stage. But thats when it all started she was already linked to choiza. I did not know the runningmam thing!

    Ajea Tipawan

    It happened just because she loves and dated Choiza. How sad 😭 if they not meet this thing would not happened to her

    spicaspicx jkjmyg

    @Ajea Tipawan yes i was thinking that too! No hate but i know things will be different if it not happened. But I know she found freedom when she dated him 😔

    iitu

    It's ridiculous that she got hate for being in a happy relationship. What the fuck?

  77. 비네라

    I love IU

  78. 비네라

    아이러브 아이유인 사람은 좋아요꾸욱!!

  79. Shuhada Mokhtar

    I totally understand why this song was famous during park geun hye's political scandal, it's very fitting to her situation. This song is so cool, it's like IU is gossiping with us haha

    Trying Duck

    Even better, IU has said she wrote the song thinking of Sulli. The girl the nation loved until she herself loved another person. Now they just love hating on her.

    Salma

    Shuhada Mokhtar could you please explain the whole park geun hye situation to me??

  80. dorito_banana
