“내가 원하는 건 외로움이 아닌데.”

“2 Beer” by Kisum | All right, this song isn’t new. It was released in the middle of last year, as the pre-release single to the South Korean rapper’s mini-album Musik. Shalla and I like her: she’s so chill, in contrast to most rappers coming out of the country; perhaps at my risk, it helps that she’s quite pretty, too. I listened to this track again over our break and left the captions on by mistake, and realized that this is incredibly, incredibly sad. It’s uncertain, it’s gloomy, it’s particularly fatalistic. So, it makes sense that this song kicks off 2017 for this blog. It’s a mindset we all have, I’d like to believe, what with 2016 and sets of people being stomped on for their beliefs. I mean, I can’t be the only one sensing a particular gloom following me today, never mind that it’s my birthday. [NB]
