Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 10 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


I have some memorable birthdays (including my own) to celebrate in June, so I prepared this special edition of five birthday songs. Also, I would like to celebrate the fact that this is the 10th issue of the Attic Playlist!
