all of lee moon sae's (이문세) albums, especially his early ones, are pure korean classics.

sometimes i wish i was born during this time period, listening to the vinyls as a youth as i obsess over each song like an awkward teenage girl---pressing the album sleeve to my chest as i stare at the ceiling and concentrate on the lyrics. i've slowly been moving back in time in regards to korean music i've been listening to lately. i've pretty much mastered all the 90's stuff and now i've been getting into the folk/pop korean music from the 80's and early 90's.

music in general nowadays is okay, but the experience just isn't the same. there doesn't seem to be much sincerity left in it, which i guess is okay if you're drunk and dancing at a party or you're competing on some lame ass reality show on tv.

the following are the current lee moon sae (이문세) albums i'm obsessing over. they're from '85, '87 and '88. i would love to dedicate a drunken night of karaoke to only lee moon sae songs, that would be awesome. so, any takers?
