Listening to Korean pop music is one of my guilty pleasures. My early favorites include Girl’s Generation and f(x). Then, I became a huge fan of Davichi, Akdong Musician, and IU. Over the years, I’ve developed a taste for certain types of K-pop music, so I now focus more on individual songs I like rather than specific artists.
I’ve also fallen in love with Korean indie music.
This is probably a side effect of my frequent reading and writing at coffee shops like Starbucks and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Speaking of which, a CBTL branch recently opened a block a way from where I live—and that’s the most amazing thing ever!
Listening to K-indie songs also relax me and lift my spirits at the end of a long day. Here are some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Vanilla Acoustic – Cookie, Coffee
Urban Zakapa – Cafe Latte
Raspberry Field – Have You Seen?
Lucille Toki – Rainy Day
Milk Tea – Mr. Chocolate, Ms. Orange
Clover – One Wave
Coffee Boy – That’s Nothing
I can imagine all of these songs playing on my dream coffee shop playlist. How about you?
