I’ve been shuffling through my entire playlist and 악몽 (romanised: Angmong; translated: Nightmare) by B1A4 came up a couple of times, so I made a mental note to do a blog post on it.
This song, found in B1A4’s 3rd album “Good Timing”, is not your run-of-the-mill pop or K-pop song. It caught my attention because of its reggae sound – something I don’t hear a lot of, if any, from Korean boy groups.
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 performance on Onstage Plus – as usual, a tight performance from Guckkasten (complemented with a beautiful stage setup).
Super Junior will be holding their Super Show 7 concert in Singapore on 27 January 2018 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Singapore will be their first overseas stop after their concerts in Seoul on 15 to 17 December.
