Yi Sung Yol (이승열) is currently one of the best musicians in South Korea. In 1994, he started his proper music career with the band “U & Me Blue”, but the group disbanded in 1997.
He restarted his career in 2003, and at that time he won a substantial critical acclaim. His modern rock-based music and philosophical lyrics. Together, they create a universe on their own. But Korean rock generally owes a lot to Yi Sung Yol.
He’s not only one of the greatest studio musician in Korea, but I will also never forget his live performances. His personal image is to always stay chic and curt. But at the same time, he hosts a live concert TV program in Korea, and sometimes appears on radio as a guest.
The song above comes from Yi Sung Yol’s fifth album, “SYX”, which you can stream in its entirety on Bandcamp. The song’s title, “노래1”, means simply “Song 1”.
