Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 14 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
This time of the year in Korea is rainy season. Excessive amount of rain on days I have to be outside the whole day is not exactly pleasant, but usually I like walking in the rain or listening to raindrops hitting against the windowpane and dripping down on the streets.
This week’s playlist
1. 윤도현(Yoon Do-Hyun) – 빗소리(Sound of Rain) (Feat. 옥상달빛(Rooftop Moonlight))
2. 정인(Jung-In) – 장마(Rainy Season)
3. 어쿠스틱 콜라보(Acoustic Collabo[ration]) – 빗속에서(In the Rain)
4. 에픽하이(Epik High) – 우산(Umbrella) (Feat. 윤하(Younha))
5. 타루(Taru) – Rainy
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.
