Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 18 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 week’s songs are instrumental. All the songs are composed by Korean musicians. They don’t have lyrics, but the melody speaks for itself.
This week’s playlist
1. 정재형(Jung Jae-Hyung) – 여름의 조각들(Pieces of Summer)
2. 장세용(Jang Se-Young) – 달에서의 하루(A Day on the Moon)
3. 김광민(Kim Kwang-Min), 이루마(Yiruma) – 학교 가는 길(Way to School)
4. 이병우(Lee Byung-Woo) – 비(Rain)
5. 두번째 달(2nd Moon) – 달이 피었네(The Moon has Bloomed)
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.
