청바지가 어울리는 여자 (어울리다 : to fit, to match)  
A woman whose jeans fit well
밥을 많이 먹어도 안 나오는 여자
A woman whose stomach doesn’t stick out even if she eats a lot of food
얘기가 재미없어도 웃어주는 여자 (얘기 -> 이야기 story) 
A woman who laughs even when my talk is boring
그런 여자가 좋더라
(-더라 : a verb ending for telling a story that you have heard, seen or felt before) 

I like a woman like that!

머리에 무스를 바르지 않아도
Even if she doesn’t put mousse in it,
윤기가 흐르는 여자
A woman with flowing, lustrous hair
고요한 눈빛을 보면서
As she sees my silent gaze,
시력을 맞추는 여자
A woman whose eyes meet mine

김치 볶음밥을 만드는 여자
A woman who makes kimchi fried rice well
웃을 목젖이 보이는 여자
A woman whose uvula is visible when she laughs
내가 돈이 없을 때에도
Even when I don’t have money,
마음 편하게 만날 있는 여자
A woman who can meet me without worry

멋내지 않아도 멋이 나는 여자
A woman who looks great even if she doesn’t dress up
껌을 씹어도 소리가 안나는 여자
A woman who doesn’t make noise even if she chews gum
뚱뚱해도 다리가 예뻐서
Because her legs are pretty even if she’s fat,
짧은 치마가 어울리는 여자
A woman who looks good in a short skirt


내가 울적하고 속이 상할
When I’m gloomy and hurt inside,
그저 바라만 봐도 위로가 되는 여자
A woman who is comforting even by only looking at me
나를 만난 이후로 미팅을
After meeting me
한 번도 한 번도 여자
A woman who never once, never once goes on a group blind date

랄라 랄라 랄라 랄라
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la la la…

그런 여자가 좋더라
I like a woman like that!
그런 여자가 좋더라
I like a woman like that!

여보세요 잠깐 보세요
Look here, kindly look at me a moment
희망 사항이 정말 거창하군요
Your wishful thinking is very exaggerated indeed!
그런 여자한테 너무 어울리는, 그런 남자가 좋더라
I like a man who is well-suited for such a woman!
