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.
I love the message of positivity in the song, Gift. It is a track in Park Hyo Shin’s sixth album, “Gift: Part 1”, the first of a two-part release in 2009 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of his debut.
The song is a gift from Park Hyo Shin to his fans, and he co-composed the music and lyrics.
If there’s no opportunity to catch Park Hyo Shin in concert, the next best thing would probably be to attend his musical. Even then, there’s no guarantee of getting tickets on days when he’s in the cast.
I had wanted to catch Musical PHANTOM in Seoul, but the tickets for days when Park Hyo Shin was performing were sold out. Turned out, the musical later toured other cities and I went for the Daegu stop.
This is not the first Park Hyo Shin song that I’ve been figuring out the guitar tab for, although it’s now the first that I’ve posted.
Back in June this year, I began working on the very first of Park Hyo Shin’s songs. I’ve been stuck at one part of the song. While I keep trying to find that eureka moment, the spotlight’s on 꿈 (or, Dream) for now.
I have seen his name bandied around before but did not check Park Hyo Shin out until middle of this year. My initiation to Park Hyo Shin then? His wildly popular song from 2014, Wild Flower.
Fast forward to last week. His song, Wild Flower, was performed by yet another singer on “King of Mask Singer”. That reminded me of his recent single, 숨 (or ‘Breath’), which then led me to his latest album, “I Am a Dreamer”.
