演员 – 薛之谦 Guitar Tab

I came across 薛之谦’s song, 演员, by chance on YouTube.

I first came to know about 薛之谦 on some Chinese variety shows. He was quite funny (is that why he decided to call himself Joker Xue?) and I was surprised to find out later that he is actually a singer.

Album cover of Maktub Project Vol.3 (Marry Me)

I have no idea who 마크툽 (Maktub) and 구윤회 (Gu Yoon Heo) are – and I’m sure most Koreans don’t know who they are too – but this song, “Marry Me”, has become really popular in Korea recently.

Just one evening in Hongdae and you will be sure to come across buskers who have this song in their repertoire. That was how I came to know about this song.
