“사랑 언제나 이번이 마지막이라며.”

“Love Again” by Lim Chang JungLast month I wrote about this ballad that was played on repeat at the lobby of the hotel we stayed in on our recent trip to Seoul. Turns out I misidentified it as one from some Korean drama’s OST. Nope. It’s a recent chart-topper from actor and singer Lim Chang Jung. I won’t delve deep into his oeuvre, save for the fact that he did this song and he was in an American Pie derivative called Sex is Zero. All I’ll say is that I stumbled upon the song again while flicking through channels randomly, hitting a rerun of the KBS music program Music Bank, and hearing one very short snippet. A bunch of Google searches later, here we are: the soundtrack to most of our mornings in Seoul, not to mention an appropriate song for yesterday’s so-called festivities. And I find that, even here in Manila, the only way I could listen to it is to listen to it again, and again, and again… [NB]
