The following song description is from Although the original version of this song isn't relevant to the Women Married to Younger Men blog, there is a Korean version of this song that is. (See below!)

"Dragostea din tei" (pronounced /dra.gos.tea din tej/) is the most successful single by the Moldovan band O-Zone. The original version was sung by Dan Bălan, Arsenie Todiraş and Radu Sârbu. The single was first released in 2003 in Romania, where the group lived and produced at that time, and in the spring of 2004 in most other European countries. As of 2006, the song is still in the lower reaches of some Eastern European singles charts. It was written and produced by Dan Bălan (who wrote most of the group's songs), and was one of 2004's most successful summer hits, as well as one of the best selling singles of the year across Europe.

Although O-Zone's version was the most popular across Europe, several other versions of the song have been made. Hyun Young, a Korean model/actress/singer, released a Korean version called Nuna-eui Ggum (Sister's Dream). Like the Hebrew version, the song preserves the same “ma-ia-hii” and “nu mă, nu mă iei” choruses; however, while the “ma-ia-hii” does not carry any meaning but is merely used as a rhythmic interjection, the “nu mă iei” is approximated to nuna-eui, often pronounced nuna-e, which means Sister's. "Nuna" is also an affectionate title a Korean man calls a woman who is older than he is. The Korean version of the song is about a romance between a younger man and an older woman.
