“왜 몰라주니 내 마음을?”

“I Don’t Wanna Go” by Kate | “If I like the album art, I might get the song,” Shalla once told me last year, when we were building that K-pop library. I ended up adopting that rule now I’m expanding it. This is one of those songs – and what a find it is. Kate Kim is one of those YouTubers who end up making it big somewhere – in this case, in Korea. Not sure if she’s half-American or just raised there, but she did study at UC Davis and says she intends to study musical theater in New York. As for this song – well, it is a love song, but the title applies considering today we fly back to Manila after a little over four days in Kuala Lumpur (and five hours in Singapore). This one bounces happily: a simple piano beat, a vocal that slides like honey (reminds me of another Korean indie delight I found this year) and that capability to give birth to an earworm. Okay, that was a bit gross. I did not have to go there… [NB]
