On April 1 a compilation album called Real Acoustic was released. It appears to be related to jazz bar Club Evans in Hongdae, although the participating artists are not necessarily jazz names. Female singer/songwriter Mysterious Curtain (whose lovely previous work you can sample on MySpace) made it to the top 10 with the album main track. The other eight songs on the album seem fairly popular as well with all of them making it to the chart: 숲, Shin Jaejin, 나비잠 (that has some sweet songs posted on YouTube), 수현, Asra IG, Lee Young Hoon (another YouTube excursion encouraged to listen to this calming male singer/songwriter) 특별 and 나쁜선
After being a member of a number of bands taking various rock oriented directions, Kim Jin Sung released his first solo album as In Flower on April 1. The title is Rina, and this time he appears to try his luck with an acoustic folk rock sound.
Although I have failed to find any kind of samples, the album info for Silent Scream leads me to think that rock band Burning Heart is attempting to make music à la Kim Kyung Ho. Not only is he mentioned, but there’s also something about sad lyrics.
Jeong In Sung, the male half of Nangman Band, released his first solo single, 심심한 하루, on April 1. What he sounds like on his own I have yet to hear, but I’m sure there are some of you that like what he’s done in the past.
