I was inspired to work on the guitar tab for this song, 나침반 (romanised: Namchimban; translated: Compass), when I watched Guckkasten’s
This song is one of the tracks on Guckkasten’s latest EP, Stranger. But did you know that 나침반 was not originally a Guckkasten song?

Stranger, or 이방인 (romanised: Ibang-in), is the title track from Guckkasten’s second EP of the same title. It was released on 15 November. That was not the first time the song was heard in public though; back in July 2017, Guckkasten performed the song for the first time at their Squall concerts in Seoul.
I was again reminded of this song recently when I saw a clip of their

The reason I’ve not updated this blog for a while is partly because I don’t have my guitar with me – I am and will be in South Korea for a short while.
Although I’m here in South Korea, I was not expecting to attend a Guckkasten concert since I thought they will probably start doing more gigs only during summer when the rock festivals kick in.
When I arrived a few weeks back, I found out that they will be holding a concert next weekend on 19 March in Seoul. I was too late. The concert is sold out.
It will make my day if I can be at the concert. If anyone has a ticket to let go, please contact me.
One thing that crossed my mind when I first saw the title of this song: “Did the inspiration for this song come from the mandrakes that I read about in the Harry Potter books?”
I don’t know for sure but Mandrake has become one of my favourite Guckkasten songs.
