From now on, I will post some K-Pop oldies (well, not all that old - mostly from the 90s) now and then. Some of these folks are still in the field, some are not. But I believe that these artists contributed very important effort for K-Pop to be what it is today. You know what - honestly, these are just my favorite songs.
김건모 (Kim Gun-mo)
In other words, you really can't talk about Korean music without looking into this guy. Below is one of my favorite songs by Kim Gun-mo.
아름다운 이별(1995) - Beautiful Goodbye
Tears run down, I knew this was goodbye, weakly
you turned, and I watched your back
I should know that you're just as sad as I am
But I must endure, so the memories stay beautiful
The short encounter we had, the sad love we had
Are all but bruises I must erase with tears
But I will keep you deep inside my heart
Because one sad love with you is just enough
Time keeps telling me to forget you in nostalgia, erasing all
But I feel like I'll cry once in a while
I close my eyes and look back at those days, inside
there is the hidden love that belong to you and me
Always, I will be inside your heart
You will know, shrouded in nostalgia
Long goodbye tells me I must forget, but sad love
is looking at you in tears.
