My Younger Sister Is a Genius Chapter 44

EP11 – turning point (4)


To say in advance, the arrangement of 『At the End』 is not at a very outstanding level. The quality is good, but how can they arrange it like this?! This means that it is not at the level of doing so.

Should I say that it is at a level that a person who is good at arranging can do? Then, the reason why Lee Ji-yoon was impressed is because this song brings out Yoon Soo-yeon’s talent.

Yoon Soo-yeon still has many shortcomings and clumsiness. She has great talent, but she has never honed it until now. However, this song covers Yoon Soo-yeon’s current shortcomings and clumsiness.

The technical skills that Sooyeon Yoon was still poor at disappeared. The pitch of the part where she sings in a low voice as if she were chanting was raised and the beat was quickened to match Yoon Soo-yeon’s voice.

Jiyoon Lee frowns. The brilliant talent that Sooyeon Yoon showed on her first day at her academy is showing again. Before we knew it, Suyeon Yoon’s song was over.

“It’s done.”

Lee Ji-yoon nodded at Yoon Soo-yeon’s words. However, Lee Ji-yoon was quiet unlike usual. Normally, I would have made a fuss and said, “Of course, our Suyeon is a genius.”

‘Did I make a mistake?’

No matter how much I think about it, there is no mistake. The original song 『At the End』 is full of mistakes every time it is sung, but 『At the End』 arranged by my brother has no mistakes.

In that respect, I think of him as my older brother.

Good thing I got help.



“Can you sing the original song of ‘At the End’?”

“Ah yes. “I will try.”

Suyeon Yoon hesitates for a moment and then nods. In response, Lee Ji-yoon played the original song 『At the End』, and Yoon Soo-yeon sang along with it.

‘I knew it.’

Jiyoon Lee strokes her chin after listening to the original version of 『At the End』. Seeing that sight, Yun Soo-yeon gulped and swallowed her saliva. The song I had just sung was very messed up, even to the person who sang it.

Indeed, what kind of harsh criticism will come back? While Soo-yeon Yoon was preparing her heart, Ji-yoon Lee said something completely different from what she expected.

“Suyeon, are there any more songs you worked with that oppa?”

“Oh, there are about two more songs.”

“Can I hear it?”


Suyeon Yoon nodded and took out her cell phone. She then manipulated her screen with familiarity, playing songs she had worked on with her brother.

Sooyeon Yoon collaborated with Hajun Yoon for a total of three songs.

『Runaway』. 『The truth is』, 『The reason I left you』.

Among them, 『Actually』 was sung during the academy interview, so only the other two songs were played. Jiyoon Lee listened to the songs with a very serious expression.

And the more I listened, the more convinced I became.

‘This is a song for Suyeon.’

It was not created by Ha-jun Yoon and sung by Su-yeon Yoon. This song was written by Ha-jun Yoon for Soo-yeon Yoon. Should we say that the subjects are different? The more I listen to the song, the more confident I become.

From the beginning of the song, development, and ending.

Even in small places, consideration for Yoon Soo-yeon abounds.



“How do you feel when you sing the song your brother wrote?”


Su-yeon Yoon thinks deeply about Ji-yoon Lee’s words.

Yun Su-yeon, who had been thinking for a while, carefully opened her mouth.

“Should I say it’s clothes that fit perfectly? “No matter what I call it, it feels like it’s perfect for me.”

“I see.”

I knew it. The singer himself feels that way. Jiyoon Lee thought of Hajun Yoon. Although I only saw him once, I could clearly tell that he cared for his younger brother.

Come to think of it, you said you originally majored in vocals, but then switched to majoring in composition?

‘No way, for my little brother?’

Lee Ji-yoon, who was thinking about that, shook his head. No way, you can’t go that far. But what if that’s really the case? What if Yoon Ha-jun continues to make Yoon Soo-yeon’s songs in the future?

Then I need to change my training method.

§ § §


The work on 『Come Home』, a song for Suyeon, has been completed. It was the longest song I’ve ever worked on.

Oh, it’s hard. Lie down, lie down, and close your eyes. Now, if you give this song to Suyeon and tell her to practice, the preparation is complete.

I also want to prepare for stage production, but Suyeon is not in the same school and has her own life. Therefore, it is impossible to produce a production that requires coordination from beginning to end like Han Go-yo and Jin So-hyang.

I feel comfortable, but something is disappointing. But I can’t help it. Now think about the tasks that need to be done. First of all, the work on the inspired song is almost complete.

In the first place, the song is comfortable because you don’t have to worry about developing it. All you have to do is add the sound of an instrument that will enhance the sound. Then there is only one thing left.

Kim Tae-young’s song.

I get up from my lying down and load Taeyoung Kim’s work on my laptop. And I frown when I hear that. I succeeded in creating a song using fragments of inspiration I felt in the past.

There are still many parts that need to be modified, but the core stem is complete. Now all you have to do is go on a diet. The problem is the instrument.

“Of course, a piano would be nice.”

This song is for Kim Taeyoung. A dirge for a genius who had to quit playing the piano because of her accident. So, I used some memorial mass songs that can be used without copyright.

I remember what Ha Hyo-joo said. This means that there is no need to use multiple instruments. This means that using only one instrument for the core part can have a greater impact.

I know there is a way. However, I just thought about it. I’ve never made a song that way. It’s not that I don’t like it or that’s my intention, but it’s because the mood of the songs I’ve made so far doesn’t match that.

However, Taeyoung Kim’s song fits that atmosphere.

“At first, just the piano.”

And several instruments are added, bringing life to the song. As the song progresses, the instruments fall out one by one, leaving only the piano.

Ultimately, the highlight section consists of just a piano. And after the highlight, instruments are added again. Instead, at this time, the piano melody is completely missing.

And the highlight and final part. Only the piano remains again. First of all, here are my thoughts. I didn’t make this choice simply to create an atmosphere that suits the song.

It was a choice made for Kim Tae-young, who had no choice but to quit playing the piano and was still full of regrets about the subject. Kim Tae-young pretends nothing is wrong, but I can tell that she is next to me.

How he looks at the piano with such lingering eyes. I want to release that lingering regret. Of course, with just one song. I don’t think that all those regrets will disappear after one performance.

However, I want to relieve that frustrating feeling. This was my honest feeling. Because I know very well how difficult it is to quit something regardless of your will.

“The problem is, of course, the piano.”

Musical instruments are truly amazing. You might think that you just have to play it, but the feel changes drastically depending on the tuning and who is playing.

Virtual instruments are great, but they are inevitably on a different level from instruments you play in person. Even if it is a recording.

And to be honest, I want to ask Taeyoung to play the piano. I know it’s impossible. He has limitations in playing with just his right hand, and how cruel it would be to ask him to play the piano again.

But that’s why I’d like to ask Taeyoung Kim to play it myself. She looks at her phone for a moment and thinks. Should I send a message or not? After thinking about it for a while, I sent a message to Taeyoung Kim.



The answer came back quickly.

Does this kid just look at his phone all day?

Phew, I sigh. Something feels heavy on my heart. Is this a good thing to do? Isn’t it just my greed? She thought about it and eventually wrote an answer.

-Can you play the piano for me?

No answer came back. I look at my phone nervously. Are you angry? Even if you’re angry, it doesn’t mean you don’t understand.

I told him a secret I had never told anyone, and he suddenly asked me to play the piano. If I show even the slightest sign of discomfort, I should apologize right away, I thought, but then I got a reply.


Same answer. However, you can see how worried he was in the 15-minute gap that existed between them. Therefore, I answered very honestly.

-You need it to make your song.

The answer came back 30 minutes later.



“So is the song finished?”

“No, not that. “There is still some work to be done.”

The next day, as soon as I got to school, Taeyoung Kim spoke to me.

Taeyoung Kim’s appearance was not much different from usual.

“Then send me the melody as soon as it’s completed. “Do you know how to write sheet music?”

“You know that much.”

“okay. I need time to practice, so send it at least a week in advance. If it’s a piano, which piano are you going to record with?”

“grand piano.”

“Hmm, then I guess I should record it by playing it twice with my right hand. “Do you know how to put together recordings?”

Nod your head. So now Taeyoung Kim is saying that she will record her left hand part once more with her right hand. That is possible. Of course, I should say Kim Tae-young.

“And how are you going to record it?”

“I’m thinking about renting a studio.”

Of course, it will cost a lot of money, but it is a cost that can be tolerated. Taeyoung Kim thought about my words for a moment, then sighed and said.

“I’ll just prepare that.”

“I would appreciate it if you did.”

“okay. “Send it to me when you’re done.”

Taeyoung Kim, who had said that much, just bent over and fell asleep. I scratch my cheek at that sight. Taeyoung Kim, unlike me, does not sleep at school.

Kim Tae-young is sleeping right now. He probably put a lot of thought into my request. Something about that sight makes me feel uncomfortable. And at the same time, she felt like she had to repay the favor with a song.

Whenever celebrities said that they would repay the favor with their work after an accident, I thought they were idiots, but now that I am the one involved, that’s all I can think of.

Something feels heavy on my heart. The good news is that Kim Tae-young wakes up and looks no different from usual? Anyway, now that the instrument is ready, all that remains is work.

Saturday. Ha-jun Yoon headed to Ji-yoon Lee’s academy with Soo-yeon Yoon. Today, I want to ask Jiyoon Lee a favor. The USB in his pocket contained Yoon Su-yeon’s completed song.


Soon after, Hajun Yoon arrived at the academy and gave a brief greeting. At the same time, Lee Ji-yoon, who was waiting for Yoon Soo-yeon, looked at Yoon Ha-jun and Yoon Soo-yeon with a somewhat surprised expression.

“You came with your brother today?”


Su-yeon Yoon smiles brightly and nods at Ji-yoon Lee’s words. She seems quite happy to have come with her brother. Lee Ji-yoon smiled at that sight.

I heard the siblings get along really well.

“So what’s going on brother? “Sooyeon wants to take you there?”

“no. “No, I have something to say to that teacher.”

“To me?”

“Yes, can we talk for a moment?”

“of course. Then, Sooyeon, go in and relax your neck.”


Su-yeon nodded and entered the lesson room, and Ji-yoon Lee and I headed to the meeting room. Jiyoon Lee took out one of her drinks and handed it to me and she asked.

“Is it okay if I call you Hajun?”


“So what does Hajun have to say?”

“It’s no different. “I was wondering if Sooyeon could help me practice this song during her lesson.”

Saying that, he takes out a USB and holds it out to Jiyoon Lee. Jiyoon Lee, who received it, looked at the USB with an interested expression and asked.

“Is this the song you will sing at the festival?”


I once said that Su-yeon was going to participate in the festival. Jiyoon Lee thought about my answer for a moment and then asked me.

“Is it okay if I listen to it?”


In order to teach Soo-yeon, Ji-yoon Lee must listen. With my permission, Jiyoon Lee connected the USB to her laptop and played the song on it.

“You recorded the guide?”

“I think I need it.”

I was the one who recorded the guide. Originally, I wanted to ask Goyo Han for a favor, but looking at Goyo these days, I’m scared that she’ll ask me to sing this song for her.

Doesn’t Goyodo end up lying on the floor and struggling like Kim Tae-young? When I think of silence with an indifferent expression, I feel somewhat scared.


Jiyoon Lee was listening to the song I made, “Come Home,” with a very serious expression. Something about that sight makes me nervous. 『Come Home』 is the most difficult song I have worked on so far.

After getting inspired, it got a little easier, but it was still difficult. Overall, a flat melody with no jumps. Even then, it has to be addictive.

An order that is bound to be difficult.

Still, I did it in the end.

The song ended soon after, and Jiyoon Lee let out an exclamation.


“are you okay?”

“Is this a song for Suyeon?”


“······Hajun. “Are you going to continue making songs for Suyeon?”


of course. The reason I changed my major to composition was solely for Suyeon. At my words, Jiyoon Lee let out a deep sigh and nodded his head.

“okay. “Is it okay if I teach Suyeon this lesson?”

“yes. “Please.”

“okay. okay.”

Jiyoon Lee nodded. Phew, that’s a relief. If Jiyoon Lee takes care of it, she has nothing to worry about. Then I guess I’ll have to record it later.

While I was thinking about that, Jiyoon Lee said.

“I guess I’ll have to change my teaching method for the time being.”

“What about the lesson method?”

“Rather than forcing people to practice a genre I’m not good at, I’m going to try to maximize my strengths. Of course, I plan to have them practice genres they are not good at in the future, but right now, I think it would be better to make the most of their strengths.”

I think that would be a good idea right now. I have to prepare for the festival, and I also have to prepare for practice at Seolwon Arts High School. It is enough to make up for the shortcomings later.

“Then let me ask you a favor.”

“okay. Oh, and did you talk to Goyo by any chance?”


“What did Goyo say?”

Think about it for a moment. Should I be honest here? Or should I lie? To be honest, Goyo didn’t say anything.

Just nod your head as usual.

But I don’t want to lie.

After thinking for a moment, I speak honestly.

“I said I would understand.”

“······It’s so quiet.”

Jiyoon Lee made a bitter expression.

§ § §

Preparations for the festival are over and Suyeon’s lessons have begun, so now we focus on the song for Kim Taeyoung. I sleep during class, and after class, I compose songs in the practice room.

And after the practice room time was over, I continued working at home. Then, before I knew it, the midterm exams had started. Of course, I proudly gave up studying for the midterm.

Of course, teachers won’t look at it favorably, but it can’t be helped. Plus, I’m not the only one who gave up on the midterm exam. There were several students who gave up, including Taeyoung.

If it’s natural, it’s natural. The second semester is the busiest semester for students. First of all, there is a festival and we also need to prepare for the Winter Festival. Additionally, as soon as the festivals and events are over, there is a major exam.

You should prepare for them when you have time to study for the midterms. In fact, there is a lot of talk about who will go on stage at our peninsula festival.

“It’s a major exam.”

Preparations for the festival are over, and preparations for the Winter Festival are also over. [Freedom] A song created based on the inspiration I felt after seeing a painting. We plan to showcase it at the event.

However, it is not just one person singing at the event. I’m thinking about 2-3 people. Anyway, preparations for the festival and event were over, but nothing was done to prepare for the major exam.

The major exam is held in December, so you need to prepare from at least October. Look at the calendar. Before we knew it, mid-September had passed. The hot summer is over and fall is approaching.

It feels like something is dividing people.

Taeyoung ends the song with that thought in mind.

Taeyoung Kim’s completed song is, as I said, a rock ballad. Although it was heavily focused on ballads rather than rock. Anyway, the lock went in.

After completing the work, I wrote the score for the song. He sent them to Taeyoung. The work is finished, but the song is not complete. In order to complete this song, we need the sound of Taeyoung Kim’s piano.

[I just need to practice this, right?]


After sending a reply to Taeyoung Kim, I look at the schedule. It was decided to record Taeyoung’s song after the festival was over. So now you can focus on the festival for the time being.

So starting next weekend, Suyeon decided to participate in the lessons. The person who made the suggestion was none other than Lee Ji-yoon. They say that the person who can best know the completeness of a song is the composer himself.

Indeed, what kind of stage will the other kids prepare for the festival? Among the people I know, there are four people confirmed to participate in the festival.

First of all, let’s do it. As a student with excellent grades, I was given the opportunity to perform alone. And Goyo Han did not miss the opportunity. He said he had finished preparing a song to go on stage, but he didn’t even tell me or Taeyoung what the song was.

And secondly, Kang Seong-Hoon. In the case of Kang Seong-hoon, it is said that he prepares the stage as the 7th representative. Well, I’m not particularly curious about this one, so I’ll pass.

Third, Taeyoung Kim. He will appear on the invited stage with Blue Aka. Taeyoung Kim is busy preparing for this right now. A combination of Kim Tae-young and Blue Aka. A meeting between a band playing in the world today and a singer who will become a world class singer in the future.

The last Jin So-hyang. This is also an invitation stage. The leader of Hwayangyeonhwa, a graduate of Seolwon Arts High School, received that opportunity, and it is said that the entire Hwayangyeonhwa will be on stage. And Hwayangyeonhwa was said to be performing on stage with a new arrangement version of 『Rough』.

A practice video sent by Sohyang.

It really wasn’t a joke.

“It’s controversial.”

Even if it is controversial, it is too controversial.

It definitely wasn’t like this in my previous life.

Umm, why did it become like this?
