Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 12 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
What is your favorite summer vacation? I think a relaxing time at a beach is a must for every summer to fully enjoy the sunshine. I was once at a beach in Costa Rica, and I still remember seeing the beautiful sunset and feeling the warmth of sunbaked beach sand that I buried myself under.
This week’s playlist
1. 캐스커(Casker) – 7월의 이파네마소녀(Ipanema Girl of July)
2. 아침(Morning) – 파도색 신발(Wave-colored Shoes)
3. 헤르쯔 아날로그(Hertz Analog) – 바다(Sea)
4. 몬구/네온스(Mongu/Neons) – 별의 노래(Song of Star)
5. 최성원(Choi Sung-Won) – 제주도의 푸른밤(Blue Night of Jeju Island)
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.
