The Best Korean Indie Songs of 2009


After the results from the Indieful ROK reader votes on best Korean indie album of the year were revealed, some of you expressed an interest in finding out which the nominated songs were. To be honest I had thought that voting for favorite songs would be the easier one, but the readers of Indieful ROK proved me wrong by not only listing more albums than songs, but on occasion not listing any songs at all! Anyway, the song titles were not published at that time, since no two valid votes contained the same song and I couldn’t make a top list, but the full list has now been posted below.

    @janet Yeah, I love the variation! Makes me confident to keep posting all things of interest to me rather than slim it down to some particular niche.

    @placidian Your recollection is correct ^^ Nonetheless I really appreciate your effort – I’m very lucky to have such dedicated readers ^_^
