HyunA (4minute) – Red (빨개요)

Note: The chorus is based on a children’s chant/song that goes “A monkey’s butt is red, red is apple, apple is delicious, delicious is banana, banana is long, long is train, train is fast, fast is airplane, airplane is high, high is Mt.Baekdu…” etc etc. So when she says “A monkey’s butt is red, red is Hyuna, Hyuna is ahh,” she means Hyuna is delicious.


Make it so cool, make it more hot
Red lipstick, make it more red (red)
Make it so cool, make it more hot
Red lipstick, make it more red (red)

I put on red lipstick, I’m red (red)
My cuteness that makes you wanna bite me is like art
Every night, you think of me like spicy ramen
Come in first if you like me

Hyuna’s back
A better body than anyone else is a full option for me
I’m gonna warm up and run
Because that red thing, that’s me
Now I’m gonna go up on stage

Don’t leave me, I’m so lonely right now
At least you don’t leave me, I’m the only one here
I might change right now

A monkey’s butt is red, what
Red is Hyuna, Hyuna is yeah
A monkey’s butt is red, what
Red is Hyuna, Hyuna is ah
Oh eh oh eh oh (Uh uh red is Hyuna)
Oh eh oh eh oh (Uh uh red is Hyuna)

Make it so cool, make it more hot
Red lipstick, make it more red (red)
Make it so cool, make it more hot
Red lipstick, make it more red (red)

Everyone stop, I’ll punish you so stick out your butt
You won’t be able to handle me every night
Say H Y U N and A
A killer dance, I’ll kill on stage, my confidence reaches the sky
I won’t say much more

Don’t leave me, I’m so lonely right now
At least you don’t leave me, I’m the only one here
I might change right now

A monkey’s butt is red, what
Red is Hyuna, Hyuna is yeah
A monkey’s butt is red, what
Red is Hyuna, Hyuna is ah
Oh eh oh eh oh (Uh uh red is Hyuna)
Oh eh oh eh oh (Uh uh red is Hyuna)
Red is Hyuna

Hyuna is red, Hyuna is red
Hyuna is red, red is Hyuna
Hyuna is red

Don’t leave me, I’m so lonely right now
At least you don’t leave me, I’m the only one here
I might change right now

A monkey’s butt is red, what
Red is Hyuna, Hyuna is yeah
A monkey’s butt is red, what
Red is Hyuna, Hyuna is ah
Oh eh oh eh oh (Uh uh red is Hyuna)
Oh eh oh eh oh (Uh uh red is Hyuna)

  1. Thanks for the translation! Would it be worth it to add a note about the hook being based off of a children’s word association game? I think it’s an interesting thing to share and it totally helps the whole song make more sense. 😀

    1. That part is actually from a kid’s song. How to sing it is like continously make a lyrics that makes sense from the last one. So here’s the song if I’m not mistaken, monkey’s butt is red, if its red it’s an apple, apple is delicious, if its delicious it’s a banana, banana is long, if its long it’s a train, and much more. So it’s not hyuna comparing herself to a monkey’s butt. ^^
