I was inspired to translate this article featuring two singers whom I have great admiration for – Park Hyo Shin and Guckkasten‘s vocalist Ha Hyunwoo. The informative article analysed the reasons for Park Hyo Shin and Ha Hyunwoo’s rise to popularity as the most sought-after live singers.
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).
