Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 06 of ‘The Attic Playlist’! My name is Jiwon, and ‘The Attic Playlist’ is a series I have designed to introduce songs by musicians who are less popular to foreign listeners yet definitely worthy of recognition. In each issue, I will introduce five songs by different musicians. For every song, I will provide the full lyrics in Korean. Then, I will pick out a few lines from the lyrics that capture the mood of the song and provide a translation of them, so non-Korean speakers can also enjoy the meaning of them.

‘The Attic Playlist’ will be published once every two weeks.

This week’s theme


We all have different methods for coping with stress. Some need to talk to their friends about their concerns, and some need time on their own. In the end, coping with stress is about understanding what is wrong if anything is and what needs to be done to make us feel better. These songs also differ in their ways of consolation, but they all contain the same hopeful message that no matter how difficult the present is, there is always a way to overcome the present and move on.
