We’ve already counted down our favorite movies and TV dramas of the year. Now it’s time for the music! Here are our picks for the top ten Korean albums of 2015.
XIA KIM JUN SU – FLOWER
Three years ago, Kim Jun Su made our top ten list on the force of Tarantallegra‘s pure epicness. This year, he outdoes himself with “Flower,” a stunningly dramatic medium-tempo dance track with a grand, atmospheric arrangement that would be right at home as an RPG score. Tablo’s lyrical rap offers the finishing touch for a track that represents pop theatricality at its best. Of course, Jun Su’s flair for the dramatic works only because it’s matched by his expressive vocal performance and musicality. Jun Su, who co-produced the album and penned many of its tracks, applies his impeccable vocals to songs as diverse as the urban electronic concoction Out of Control, the Broadway-style Musical in Life and soul-stirring ballads like “My Night” and “Breath of Love.”
