Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 13 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 made this special edition (unexpected!) with recommended songs. I have had a few inquiries about whether I am accepting any recommendations. Because selecting the songs has been solely at my discretion, I wanted to give my listeners a chance to show their taste of music.
