“내 전부를 터트리는 이 순간.”

“Ready! Get Set! Go!” by Peppertones | My cousin Jeanna was a bit dismayed to learn that I was building a K-pop playlist when we flew to Seoul back in 2015. “No Korean indie?” she asked. I wanted some, but back then I was really reliant on the stuff in Shalla’s library. Fast forward to today and there’s a fair amount of indie on there, but not this song. I have one Peppertones track, but not this song. I only heard it on South Korean radio last week – I was tuned in because my mother was in Busan and I had to set the mood somehow. It’s a duo – Shin Jae-pyung and Lee jang-won – with some sort of Shibuya-kei dreams, if only a bit more forward, with more of an 80s vibe. But this song feels very Monday morning-esque, especially if you’re the positive kind. (I’m not, so to Tuesday morning it goes.) Trying to figure out the thinking behind the “I’m a new black star” lyric, though. I have just rewatched Cosmos, after all, so… black holes? Dark energy? [NB]
