꽉 잡은 이 손(This small hand) M/V https://youtu.be/yOlJ9u0NMUY #JYP #JYPark #박진영 #꽉잡은이손 #ThisSmallHand. 2019.1.25 태어난 딸 아이에게 특별한 선물을 주고 싶어 노래를 하나 만들었습니다. 그런데 노래를 부르다 갑자기 눈물이 쏟아져 내렸습니다. 가사 내용이 모두 제 부모님이 저에게 해주신 것들이었기 때문입니다. 어머니에게 전화를 드려 감사하다고 말씀드렸는데 아버지에게는 그럴 수가 없었습니다. 아버지는 치매가 심해지셔서 절 알아보시지 못하기 때문입니다. 친구들과 어울려 노실 줄도 모르시고 평생 샐러리맨으로 가족밖에 모르셨던 아빠, 너무 마음이 약해서 나에게 질질 끌려다닌 아빠, 너무 친구 같아서 지금도 아버지란 말이 어색한 아빠… 아빠를 찾아가 옛날 사진들을 보여드리며 얘기를 나누는데 신기한 일이 일어났습니다. 아빠가 갑자기 “네가 잘 될수록 곁에 있는 사람들을 잘 챙겨서 함께 가야 한다.”라고 말씀하시는 것이었습니다. 너무 놀라 얼른 딸아이 영상을 보여드리며 “아빠 손녀야”라고 말씀드리자 “그놈 너무 예쁘게 생겼네. 보통 놈이 아니겠는데”라고 말씀하셨습니다. 아빠가 편찮아 지신 후에 너무 후회되는 일이 있었습니다. 아빠한테 한 번도 제대로 “내가 이렇게 잘 성장한 건 아빠 때문이야”란 말을 못 했던 것이었습니다. 그래서 그 말을 했더니 아빠는 “아니야. 다 네가 잘나서 그런 거지”라고 하셨습니다. 그렇게 기적 같은 1분의 시간이 우리에게 주어졌습니다… 이 비디오를 제 사랑하는 아빠 '박명노'님께 바칩니다. *이 곡의 모든 수익금은 초록우산 어린이재단을 통해 어려운 환경에서 태어난 아이들을 위해 쓰입니다. 2019.1.25 I wanted to give my new born girl a special present so I wrote a song for her. But while recording the song I burst out in tears because I realized all the things I wrote for my baby was given to me by my parents. I called my mom and thanked her but I couldn't with my dad because he's in late stage alzheimer's disease and can't recognize me any more. Being a diligent salaryman his whole life, never partied with his friends, spending all his time just for our family. Who was so soft-hearted that always had been dragged around by me. Too much like a friend that I called him 'dad' rather than 'father' my while life. So I went to see him and watched old pictures together and suddenly a mysterious thing happened. My dad told me "The more you become successful take more care of the people around you". I was so surprised, and I hurried and showed him the video of my new born girl and he said "She's so adorable and looks like a special girl". After my dad was unable to communicate properly, there was something that I regretted so much. The fact that I never thank told him that it was him who made me what I am. So I told him that right away and he said "No it's because you are special. I didn' t do much". Just like that a minute of miracle was given to us. * This video is dedicated to my dad Myung Ro Park
He went on to share a story about a special moment he and his father shared recently, and dedicated the music video to his father. At the end of the music video, he explained all that proceeds from the song will go towards helping children born in a difficult environment.
