Yeah of course! Haha I won’t get offended, the caption is just there for people who want a little blurb about the song or artist. It also grabs attention and makes UGK stand out from other blogs ^^
I KNOW! I hope they come out with even a new single or EP soon because I’m dying here OTL They’re a unique genre though it may not seem like it at first listen. Their music can be defined as healing music, having such a pure sound without sounding childish. If you like them and their mystical musical power, I’d suggest artists like
Sweden Laundry (스웨덴세탁소)
Autumn Vacation (가을방학)
Linus’ Blanket (라이너스의 담요)
J Rabbit (제이레빗)
Peppertones (especially their slower songs like “Furniture”)
Hope this is helpful! ^^
That explains the sudden skyrocket in followers! I was so confused; why were we getting followers during our most inactive period OTL not complaining at all, it was just so random! I have NO idea how we’re trending on tumblr but this kinda sorta really made my life and I’ll work even harder for all our new (and old~) followers! You’re all the best ♥
So sorry for the late response ㅠㅠ If you haven’t found it already, here it is! Hope you enjoy~
Of course! There are a ton but they’re definitely not nearly as known as male rappers (which is a shame). We have a decent variety under our female rapper tag :3 Hope that helps! If you would like to know some more, please feel free to send another ask~
I can’t find a proper list but I think this is it, along with the DL links ^^
Hope you enjoy!
Artist: Travel Sketch (여행스케치)
Song: Destiny (운명)
Album: 4집 Story of Grown-up Kids (다 큰 애들 이야기)
Throwback! If you follow the drama, Reply 1994, you may recognize that Kim Sung Kyun (김성균) and Dohee (도희) sang this together. It’s originally by Travel Sketch, a very old band that debuted in 1989. This song was released way back in 1994! (That was before I was born..) Though it gives off the old school vibe with the overuse of echo, it’s such a beautiful track that expresses the deep love that’s hard to find in modern love songs.
|Not Just Two (둘이 아닌가 봐) (With Christina Love Lee)|
Artist: Standing Egg (스탠딩 에그)
Song: Not Just Two (둘이 아닌가 봐) (With Christina Love Lee)
Album: 2집 Like
From the very beginning, your heart will melt at the jazzy cafe feeling. The intertwining of Standing Egg’s soothing vocals and Christina Love Lee’s charismatic vocals creates one of the most lovely “You-and-I” tracks I’ve ever heard. It makes the perfect atmosphere to have a sip of coffee with your significant other~

Artist: Misty Blue (미스티 블루)
Song: Obliviate (망각)
Album: 4/4 Sentimental Painkiller - “Winter is Spring’s Heart (겨울은 봄의 심장)” EP
Misty Blue is another wonderful band from Pastel Music consisting of Jung Eun Soo (정은수) on vocals and Choi Kyung Hoon (최경훈) as bassist. The duo practices soft rock and alternative music with a very unique sound. Their songs are calming and soft-spoken with a lot of whispering. Jung Eun Soo’s soft voice compliments the instruments and results in some mind-blowing music. Personally, their music feels like a warm hug on sombre days and already, I’m a huge fan!

|The Great Deep (대양)|
Artist: Life and Time (라이프 앤 타임)
Song: The Great Deep (대양)
Album: The Great Deep (대양) EP
This six-minute long track is so extremely liberating with its pure rock composition of the basic guitar, bass, and drum. The band itself is a unique bunch as well: Park Seon Bin (박선빈) from THE KOXX, Jin Sil (진실) from Loro’s, and their high school colleague, Lim Sang Wook (임상욱). It’s amazing that high school friends could keep in touch and end up making music together.
As some of you may or may not know, I’m in Korea right now. I’m staying somewhere near Seoul and, as an indie fanatic, of course I’m going to the heart of indie: Hongdae! Gonna go enjoy those cafe and street performances~
I’ll be going this Saturday sometime in the afternoon (probably from 2 pm on; of course, KST). I don’t know if this is a thing but I was hoping I could meet some of UGK’s followers and bond over music (hopefully that doesn’t sound creepy…?). It’s awfully hard to find people with the same music taste, even in Korea, so I’d love to meet some other indie fans! I’m fluent in both English and Korean so hopefully no one feels uncomfortable meeting up ^^”
If you’re in the area and free that day, please shoot me a message! :D I really don’t know if this is a weird or sketchy thing to plan but I thought “why not?” haha~
Isn’t that a GORGEOUS guitar solo? I will never get over it~
Some songs I’d recommend that I think have a similar feel are
Vanilla Unity (바닐라 유니티) - Into Your Shadow (당신의 그늘 속에)
Flower (플라워) - Broken Yesterday
Blue Near Mother (블루 니어 마더) - Change
Toxic (톡식) - Satellite (인공위성)
Mate (메이트) - Yeah
Moonwhales - Violet Tears
Lee Sun Jung Band (이선정 밴드) - Ordinary Day
There are so many more I would recommend but these are the first that come to mind :D Hope you enjoy them!
|To Mineral Water (생수에게) (Feat. Kwon Jeong Yeol of 10cm)|
Artist: Polaroid Piano (폴라로이드 피아노)
Song: To Mineral Water (생수에게) (Feat. Kwon Jeong Yeol of 10cm)
Album: Single “To Mineral Water (생수에게)”
To continue with the deep piano ballads, here’s one with everyone’s favorite indie vocalist, Kwon Jeong Yeol. Polaroid Piano, who used to be a soloist, recently became a duo. Lim Young Jo (임영조) plays the piano and does the producing while Baek Hyun Woo (백현우) does the singing. This song was released before Baek Hyun Woo was scouted though which is why the vocalist was featured.
|Like Rain (비처럼)|
Artist: Yoon Jung (윤정)
Song: Like Rain (비처럼)
Album: Single “Like Rain (비처럼)”
Yoon Jung is so insanely under-promoted, it kills me. She won first place in a songwriting competition and finally released her winning track, “Like Rain.” Yoon Jung is from a very renowned Korean music academy, Modern K. Though she is an amateur by experience, it’s hard to believe after listening to this song. Even the angelic vocals are of her voice! Much respect to this auspicious artist. There is also a piano version which is just as beautiful (if not more).

|Mama (Feat. 구윤회, 한예슬, 신종욱, 김나영)|
Artist: Jungkey (정키)
Song: Mama (Feat. 구윤회, 한예슬, 신종욱, 김나영)
Album: Single “Mama”
If you don’t call this great music, I just may question your sanity (kidding not kidding). I feel every ounce of emotion that each vocalist pours into each word and note of this soul harmony. This is a song you have to listen to until the very end at least once, and that one listen will get you hooked.
