First day of spring 2017

Today’s the first day of spring. This being my first time experiencing a change of seasons (physically) since it’s sunny all year round where I come from, I’m feeling a sense of sensibility.

Spring makes me think of this song that I’ve been wanting, but have not gotten around, to learning.

2017 Guckkasten [HELLO] Concert

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.

Guckkasten Hello Concert (2017)It will make my day if I can be at the concert. If anyone has a ticket to let go, please contact me.

너를 위해 For You – 첸, 백현, 시우민 (엑소) Chen, Baekhyun, Xiumin (EXO) Guitar Tab

I thought this song didn’t quite go well with the Korean drama “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” when I first heard it. Being a historical drama, the R&B sound of 너를 위해 (or For You) seems weird in that context.

Then again, “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” isn’t entirely a historical drama since it tells of an woman who goes back in time to the Goryeo dynasty from the present.

커플 Couple – 젝스키스 SECHSKIES Guitar Tab

They disbanded before I started listening to Kpop. But I would find out about SECHSKIES when they reunited 16 years after their disbandment through Korean variety show “Infinite Challenge”.

커플 (or Couple) was one of SECHSKIES’ well loved songs and they were often asked to sing it on the “Infinite Challenge” episodes documenting the run-up to their reunion concert. That’s how I got to know the song and came to like it.

설레이는 소년처럼 Shy Boy – 하현우 Ha Hyunwoo (국카스텐 Guckkasten) Guitar Tab

Starting 2017 with a post on an artiste with rising popularity in 2016 – Ha Hyunwoo of Guckkasten and his track for the OST of Korean drama, “The Legend of the Blue Sea”.

I had to do a double take when I first heard the teaser of the song, for I wasn’t sure if it was Ha Hyunwoo. Those soft vocals didn’t quite sound like him.
