This post is for all the music lovers out there. Especially if you are someone who likes to simply melt into soft, melodious and enchanting music, the ones those just lifts you off your environment and off this world and takes you to that magical place where there are nothing but placidity and happiness.
Ok now.. drama apart.. I will come to the main purpose of this post. Music has no language and its universal. consisting of just melody and rhythm (courtesy Violin Vasu sir, Music Appreciation, Spring 2007, IIIT Hyderabad 🙂 ..)
Well, since I am here in Korea, I happen to listen to a plethora of Korean music, thanks to my Korean friends who are simply more than eager to “force” korean music into me 🙂 .. But it turns out that Koreans do make some of the most melodious music in the world .. Must say that I am impressed..
Hence beginning with this post, occasionally i would write on some of the best.. Yes.. I wont include all the good ones (since that would be a lot).. only a few best personally handpicked music, which are my favorites of course. I hope you wont be disappointed with my selection. As a forerunner, I would also put up some information on the background of the particular song.
As the maiden post in this category, let me introduce you to a song titled “SarangHaeyo” (meaning I love you) from the movie “A Millionaire’s First Love” (For Koreans reading this post : 사랑해요 – 백만장자의 첫사랑)..
Introduction (Source Wikipedia)
“Kang Jae-kyung is your typical spoiled rich kid; he’s arrogant, drives sporty cars, attends the big clubs, rides through school corridors on his motorcycle and – wait, that’s not typical at all is it? As his 18th birthday approaches he’s set to inherit his grandfather’s fortune, but that comes with a price. Jae-kyung is going to have to earn his fortune. His grandfather lays down an ultimatum; Jae-kyung is required to transfer to a new school in Gangwondo and graduate. Until then all access to his penthouse, cottage and credit cards is denied. Should he fail to graduate or drop out then he loses everything. With little choice he heads out to the countryside and a small town in which daily life is far removed from what he’s used to.
Shortly after settling into his new home he meets 19 year-old Choi Eun-whan, who just happened to run into him back in Seoul. They don’t exactly hit it off; he’s far too stubborn and cool for school, while she sees hope for him and sets out to make him see it for himself. As they eventually draw closer, thanks to a set of coincidences and school projects they learn more about one another, but soon a shattering revelation will change these people forever.”
Here goes the first song in the first post in a possibly a musical 😉 series of posts
Hope you enjoyed it,
