This playlist isn’t about introducing what’s brand new in pop or cool in indie, this is a mixed bag, a cocktail concoction, if you will. Is there a common theme? Yes: older Korean songs that we like, and it might be pop, or rap, or indie, or crazy. Hopefully you’ll discover some songs that you can’t believe you’ve been living without!
Pop: Big Bang – Haru Haru
Who’s cutting all these onions near my laptops? Ugh, it’s making my eyes all watery. Gosh.
Pop: Baek Ji Young ft Taecyeon – My Ear Candy
One of the catchiest kpop songs we’ve ever heard, yet it didn’t get a lot of attention. Also, love Taecyeon’s serious “in pain” expression throughout this video.
Rap: Red Roc ft TOP – Hello
This rapper is so underground that we can’t find any of his albums or an official YouTube channel, if you’ve got any info about it, let us know!
Indie: GOGOSTAR 고고스타 – Champagne
We love love love GOGOSTAR! Expect a couple more songs by them to pop up on these playlists. If you like them and you live in Korea, you can catch them playing in small clubs in Hongdae! They’re crazy!
