Music Video: 가려진 시간 사이로

There's a lovely music video I saw on T.V. a few days ago that I was immediately drawn to.
First of all, one of my favorite Korean actors, Lee Seon-Gyun (이선균, sometimes also spelled Lee Sun-Gyun or Lee Sun-Kyun):






















He might not be the best looking man ever, but he has the best (THE BEST) voice. It's perfection. Even if you can't understand Korean, you must watch the first few seconds of the YouTube clip below.

He was in "White Tower (하얀 거탑)" as a caring, sweet doctor, then in "Coffee Prince (커피프린스 1호점)" as a sweet, caring music producer. Those are the two dramas I've seen him act in, and he was stellar in both.

So when this music video suddenly came on, of course I was intrigued! It's a song originally by Yoon Sang (윤상, pronounced "sahng"), who generally creates very pretty ballads. This particular version of the song was recorded by Yoon Gun (윤건).

It's called 가려진 시간 사이로. When translated literally, the words mean Between Hidden Time:

가려진 = hidden, covered, protected
시간 = time
사이로 = between

The music video really illustrates, I think, what happens between those times when we guard ourselves:
