Let’s round out our translated OST series for General and I with “Never Betray”  by Zhou Pin.  The song doesn’t get much air time, but it does pop up at the most crucial moments in the drama when Ping Ting and BeiJie are separated. It is probably the most soulful song depicting Bei Jie’s inner battle with his emotions.

Nàihé fēnluàn de xuānxiāo
Helpless in chaos and tumult
Sànluò liúlí de jìliáo
Lonely in separation and exile
愿只能不改初心 就好
Yuàn zhǐ néng bù gǎi chūxīn jiù hǎo
I only pray we never change our original aspiration
Lángyānsìqǐ de āiháo
Smoke signals rise on all sides, people wail at the imminent war
Duì tiān qǐshì wèilái rú mèng huò jiān’áo
I swear to God whether the future is a dream or an ordeal
Dōu jǐn jǐn yīkào
We will tightly hold on to each other

Bèifù suǒyǒu de shāng tòng cái zhídé měihǎo
Only after we endure pain will we deserve happiness
Bǎi zhuǎn qiān zhé shuí néng liào
Who can predict life’s countless twists and turns?
用尽一生苍老 愿妳一笑
Yòng jìn yīshēng cānglǎo yuàn nǐ yīxiào
I exhaust my life, only wishing for a smile from you
Shēn xiàn bīnghuāngmǎluàn de páoxiāo
Notwithstanding the turmoil and chaos of war
Wǒ jiāndìng bù yáo
I stand firm
爱永远追随 天涯海角
Ài yǒngyuǎn zhuīsuí tiānyáhǎijiǎo
My love will follow you forever, to the end of the world

Chūn yíng qiūsī de chánrào
The plentiful spring and the soulful autumn envelope me
Xià sè dōng yǔ de lísāo
The colorful summer and the whispering winter live in my poem
Su bù jìn sīniàn xin tòng rú jiǎo
There is no way to define those heart-wrenching pains
Dēng shàng bùshèng hán de gāo
I ascend to the lonely heights

Diéluò fúchén lěngnuǎn de cháo
I tumble into the freezing irony and the burning satire through life’s ups and downs
人海中 寻妳的容貌
Rén hǎizhōng xún nǐ de róngmào
In the midst of crowds, I search your face

Repeat **** (once)

Rènpíng luànshì biànyě huáng shā yíngmiàn héngsǎo
Despite the turbulent world where the yellow sand sweeps over my face
Lièrì bēngluò yǐng cánzhào
and the scorching sun collapses into evening glow
穿越地陷天塌 爱怎可抛
Chuānyuè dì xiàn tiān tā ài zěn kě pāo
I cross the falling sky and the crumbling earth. How can I forsake my love?
Chōngzhuàng guó hèn rúshān de zǔnáo
Dashing through the hindrance of overwhelming national enmity
Xiāngsī rùgǔ shāo
is our deep-seated lovesickness
Wǒ yǒng bù xiāng fù cǐshēng yǒngbào
I’ll never betray the embrace of love

Officail MV for “Never Betray”

Is it normal for official drama OST music videos to come out after the drama ended?

Won: When this MV came out, I had already started working on my own MV for the song and it was challenging. Oh, the lost time I could have saved if I just waited…I would also like to say Hahawent above and beyond for this song …just look at the translation and you’ll understand. The lyrics are so complicated.

  3. Love this OST! It’s my 2nd fav to Henry Hou’s theme song.

    I associate this song with the scene where Pingting convinced Beijei to let her stay by his side. The best scene in the drama, imo.

      1. I like all six but if I have to choose one, it’ll probably be Tower of Tears because I love the way the song was used as a medium of connecting the two souls, first played with zither by BPT, then with flute by CBJ, then in the song form with lyrics. Love that sequence.
