Korean Music
« on: April 23, 2009, 07:08:48 PM »
So, I've learned a few things about Korean Music:
1.  While all the stuff I was finding 5 years ago was crappy Ballad-y stuff, alot more of the popular newer stuff sounds a lot like JPop.  It's generally not original, but at least it sounds good.
2.  The very best Korean artists (such as BoA and DBSK) sing in Japanese and Chinese as well.  This is not true of the best Japanese and Chinese artists.
3.  Koreans like inventing English words and using them to title their songs/albums.  Examples:  Toucholic, Rainism, Mirotic, Mollaing (몰라ing), etc.

Well, if you're into this, could you by any chance say what's the name of this track?

Nope.  Korean music really isn't a specialty of mine.  Just something I listened to a bit of.

Sounds kinda like Outsider, Korea's fastest speed rapper (one of the top in the world). I don't listen to him, but it really sounds a lot like what I've heard of him with just a touch of Drunken Tiger mixed in. Then again, whoever this is doesn't go very fast in this song, and I assume that Outsider does that in every song as a signature move. I'll look up some of the lyrics and see if I can't come up with something more definite.

EDIT: Just checked Outsider. The voice is definitely different. I will keep searching.
