Chapter 9-B : One Step at a Time


“No, this won’t do”

“No?!!!” the members couldn’t believe their ears

“No!” their producer repeated his word

“No?!!! What? Why?”

“No, for the debut piece” Lee Soo Man explained “It’s a damn good song, I admit. But it’s too metal core. There’s no scent of femininity at all. Did you really compose this one, Eunhye? If you guys didn’t tell me first, I could never guess a girl create this piece. With the debut song, we have to promote Eunhye’s comeback, it should be softer, more feminine”

“Arasso” they chorused, obviously disappointed. Eunhye was quite dejected.

“Hey! Cheer up!” Soo Man said when seeing their expression “I told you it’s really good. We can promote it as the second single. But trust me; it won’t do as the debut single”

Eunhye gave him a faint smile “I understand”

This day was their weekly meeting with Lee Soo Man sunsaeng-nim. Everyone except the manly leader-shi was there. Yunho couldn’t make it because he had to go back to his home according to his father’s call about his sick grandma. And the rest proudly presented the producer their first song. But to their disappointment, he didn’t agree on using it as the debut piece.

However, they continued discussing over other things which needed to be done before they finally debuting as the SM project group. The Chairman told Eunhye to finish all her CF filming, Photo and magazine shootings and fans meetings by the end of the year. And he told DBSK to also prepare themselves for SM Town concert which will be held the upcoming Christmas.

“You guys should get back to the gym too” he said, looking at the boys’ bodies. They gained some weights due to their activities in the office, which are mainly eating and sleeping. This also the result of them having 2 chefs in 1 household. The 2 chefs couldn’t help but showed off their cooking talent to terrorize the other and the members got all the benefits. “That included you, Eunhye”

“Bwoh? Moi?” she pointed to herself.

“Yes, you have to go back to gym, get fit and get your vocal system strengthen”

“Yes, sunsaeng-nim”

“Oh! By the way” he searched the pile in front of him “I got some present for you, Eunhye” he pulled out a file and gave it to her.

Park Jin Young sent this over to me a few days ago” he told her while she’s opening the file “Seem like you are everyone’s sweetheart”

Inside the file were 3-pieces of paper containing a song “Dash Girl” which was composed and written by the man, JYP himself, with a demo CD attached to it. Eunhye looked up at Lee Soo Man’s kind face, confused.

“Why did he compose a song for me? I’m not his artist”

JYP Entertainment , along with YG and SM Entertainment also with other several companies, was competing for her contract. In the end, as we already know, Eunhye signed a 2-year-contract with SM Ent.

“Well, he told me that this is the song he meant to compose it for you, and for you to sing only. Though you didn’t sign with him, he still adored you. So he sent this over and asked to add this to your album”

“Kamsahamnida” Eunhye was very grateful.

“You thank the wrong person” he chuckled “Go properly thank him and his unselfishness someday, harasso?” Eunhye nodded. “Don’t be so thankful!” the SM Chairman noted her “He does earn money from my pocket for that piece!”

They continued discussed and consulting for half an hour till everything, every schedule were done for them “I believe this is all”

“Wait, sunsaeng-nim” Changmin called “There’s another piece I want you to see” he pulled a CD out from his bag. “It’s not really done yet but I think it’s also good”

“Whose song is this?”

“You see” the maknae started to describe “The melody was composed by Jaejoong hyung and Junsu hyung. Nuna and I wrote the lyric. The rap part was from Yunho hyung. And Yoochun hyung rearranged it”

“I see.” He glanced at the cover “Hmm… ‘One Step at a Time’? Sing it for me”

“Eh?”

“Sing it. Acapella way” he told them, refused to insert the CD into his computer but put it aside.

“But Yunho hyung isn’t here” Junsu protested

“Then cut his rap part out” he easily replied. With no choice, they obeyed the Producer’s order and tuned their voices together.

Changmin snapped his fingers to give them the beat

“5 6 7 8”

Hurry up and wait
So close, but so far away
Everything that you’ve always dreamed of
Close enough for you to taste
But you just can’t touch

You know you can if you get the chance
In your face as the door keeps slamming

(Chorus)
We live and we learn to take
One step at a time
There’s no need to rush
It’s like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It’s gonna happen and it’s
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

You believe and you doubt
You’re confused, you got it all figured out
Everything that you always wish for
Could be yours, should be yours, would be yours
If they only knew

You know you can if you get the chance
In your face as the door keeps slamming

(Chorus)
We live and we learn to take
One step at a time
There’s no need to rush
It’s like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It’s gonna happen and it’s
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

When you can’t wait any longer
But there’s no end in sight
It’s the faith that makes you stronger
The only way you get there
Is one step at a time

(Chorus)
Take one step at a time
There’s no need to rush
It’s like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It’s gonna happen and it’s
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

(Chorus)
One step at a time
There’s no need to rush
It’s like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It’s gonna happen and it’s
supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time


(A/N: The lyric is changed into Jordin Sparks’s One Step at a Time which pulled out the rap parts. I decided to replace my lame lyric with this one. 😛

Without the rapping and interlude parts, the acapella piece only last 3 minutes long. When the members finished they turned to their producer and instructor.

Lee Soo Man grinned.

“That’s what I’m talking about!” he reached over to the phone and dialed someone

“You like it?” Eunhye asked

“Like it? I love it!” he announced “This is a perfect debut single for your project! I always think it’d be great if you guys will debut with acapella piece”

“What about Yunho’s part” Jaejoong questioned.

“Make it 2 versions” he told them “One acapella version, and the other with your original beat with his rapping part. You guys are free tomorrow right?”

“Neh” they chorused.

The person Lee Soo Man was calling picked up and they talked. “Yeah, this is me. Is the recording studio available tomorrow? I want to record a song”

“Recording? Tomorrow?” Yoochun gasped. Their sunsaeng-nim raised his eyebrows. He covered the phone and asked.

“Why? What’s the problem?”

“Nothing” the dandy boy shook his head. The Chairman went back to his phone.

“Neh. Okay.” He hung up and turned to the anxious artists “Tomorrow 2pm. don’t be late!” he told them concisely.

“Yes, sir!” all his kids saluted him before leaving.
