Korean Oldies 80s-90s

Reply Me 1997 has definitely revived my love for the pop in the 80s and 90s. Dare I say I love that era even more than the kpop now? I’m actually sick of kpop now. Everything sounds pretty much formulaic and the same. Sure, I’ll still take notice if some of the older groups like DBSK, f(x) etc comes out with something. But beyond that, I don’t really care anymore. I’m actually unaware of many of the new groups around.

Here’s sharing some oldies! ^^ Actually, it’s a good way of practicing your listening and pronunciation. Since the songs are much slower and each syllable is pronounced more clearly. I don’t think all the raps in kpop is going to be much help and most beginner learners are unlike to catch the words and the sounds.

Here’s two that I really like!

    I have been trying to find a song sung by two female Korean singers, but I don’t know the name, except the tune is in my mind and has been there since 1987/1988, when I first heard it played in Korea. I think the song was a top hit in Korea those years, but not really sure…..

    Searching on the internet…has been, well, like trying to find the proverbial needle in the haystack…

    I am searching for a song… I had it on a youtube playlist, but the description was in Korean and I couldn’t read it. It is sung by a woman, probably in her 40’s. The video to the song features many different people, but the most memorable for me was a blind man with his seeing eye dog. The dog is taken, but eventually finds his way back to his owner. I really loved the song, but it has disappeared from my playlist and I don’t know how to find it again. I would be so appreciative if someone could direct me to the song again! Thanks so much!
