★★★★★ Rock, Ballade
The band DeulGukHwa is the first substancial independant rock band which has resistancial image.
JeonInKwon's shouting voice and appearance were the icon of young ages under suppression by Military Dictatorship.
[GeuGeotManI NaeSeSang; That's only my World] and [HaengJin] were anthems of 80s. They did club live actively and handed the opposite culture over to indie bands. Cause of differences of their musical direction, the band broken. Some Korean Rock analysts say if they made 4 or 5 albums more, Korean Rock became a little better.
[OHuMan ItDeon IlYoIl; Sunday, all was Afternoon] is represent of 80s ballad. --DisTort, 1999
I think most of you know who these two people are, but I will introduce them nonetheless. Jeon, In Kwon is, I dare say, a legend in his own right in Korean rock. He used to be with a great early 80s group DeulGukHwa. Han, Sang Won is best known for his "funky" guitar playing (he is also known for spending ten years at Berklee :)). He is a very good guitar player. I wouldn't say he is a modern guitarist, but I believe he can just about play any style. His previous two albums weren't successful commercially, but I think he will be best remembered for his guitar playing, not for his original music.
Anyway, this album is brought by these two great musicians. Interesting thing is that this album had very little publicity exposure. Even the album jacket is very plain. I think they just knew only people like me will get it anyway. :)
I am not certain, but about half of the tracks are remakes, such as GeuGeotManI Nae SeSang and MiIn. And after listening to the CD for a while, I suddenly realized that Jeon, In Kwon actually sounds like Ozzy. Is it just me? It's a great CD. My only gripe is that the CD info sheet didn't credit the involved musicians. The marketing side of this project is really low budget. :)
Bottom line: Get it. --HongCho, 1998-10-27
