Alive and Well in South Korea~!

Hello Everyone! I hope you've been well! I've been transitioning into my new life as an english teacher in South Korea and everything is working out very well. There are difficulties in living in a country where you don't speak the language very well but people are accommodating and supportive of my efforts of using Korean to communicate. Well enough about me...its back to music time! I hope to post as much as I can and first I'd like to focus on Korean music for a while since i'm here! So, todays post I'll start with a 2 disc Jeon Young Rok compilation I found in a record store in Busan. Two disc collections like this are fairly common in Korean department stores but I still find that most people have no idea who they are when I buy them, unless they are from that generation of course! People give me some perplexed looks when I ask for older music or Trot, but I guess its pretty strange for a waygook to know, let alone, like these artists! Jeon Young Rok is a great singer and his daughter has also continued the families musical lineage as a member of the famous k-pop group, T-ARA. Enjoy!
