Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 17 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
Look for the interesting focus on hairstyle as the main image or the metaphor of the lyrics.
This week’s playlist
1. 구혜선(Gu Hye-Sun) – 갈색머리(Brown Hair)
2. 박정현(Park Jung-Hyun) – 미장원에서(At the Beauty Salon)
3. 데이라이트(Daylight) – 머리를 자르고(Getting a Haircut)
4. 10cm – 곱슬머리(Curly Hair)
5. 이수영(Lee Soo-Young) – 단발머리(Short Hair)
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.
