Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 08 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
Toronto’s weather is getting warmer. It indeed feels like remnants of winter are melting away and bits of spring are budding everywhere. Although it is still quite cold when it is windy, evening air of spring is refreshing. Evenings at this time of the year have a particular atmosphere to them. These songs capture the feeling of refreshment.
This week’s playlist
1. 전기뱀장어(Electric Eel) – 술래잡기(Game of Tag)
2. 테테(Tete) – 저녁(Evening)
3. 가을방학(Fall Break) – 한낮의 천문학(Midday Astronomy)
4. 김윤아(Kim Yoon-A) – 야상곡(Nocturne)
5. 윤상(Yoon Sang) – 가려진 시간 사이로(Through the Hidden Time)
I hope you have enjoyed the playlist, and feel free to comment below if you have any questions or concerns about my translation. I would also appreciate words of encouragement! All the Korean lyrics are from Naver Music, and all the videos are from Youtube.
