So this week’s artist of the week is one I’ve been debating about how to post because I don’t exactly have a playlist. But I really wanted to have him as a featured artist so I’ll update this post later with a playlist when I get one.
스무살 (20 Years of Age), at first, I thought was a new drama coming out. I quickly realized that this an artist with a relaxing sound and one I should probably pay more attention in the future.
1TheK Artist Profile:
[20 Years Of Age]
The memory of one-sided love, 20 Years Of Age’s Not Him.
‘20 Years Of Age’ is a musician who has been going steady by releasing songs like ‘hey you’, ‘You Are’ and ‘Remind me’. He’s also a singer-songwriter who has been acknowledged his ability. Recently he has released a song ‘We Loved’ with BolBBalgan4 and he’s secured publicity. He’s a whole dear. He’s getting attention about what he’s written the lyrics with pretty plain and clear. He’s been singing how much heartbreak he’s been through more than just simple expression.
I guess nothing else needs to be said after that! Check out his music below!
Since I’m back in school, I spend a lot of time listening to music again to help me study. One of my favorite genres undergrad was indie. (In some ways it still is…) I’m going to be honest though, 10 cm was not a band I thought I’d ever really like. I heard one song and was just like “meh” and then I took the time one rainy day to listen to a few more songs and now… I’m completely a fan!
10 cm began as a duo originally comprised of Kwon Jung-yeol and Yoon Cheol-jong. But I read somewhere that Yoon Cheol-jong left this year and so now only Kwon Jung-yeol remains.
If you haven’t heard of 10 cm before, check out the sample artist playlist below!
**Quick note: Not really sure how I managed to do this but I currently have two soundcloud accounts so if you see a Twenty Third Station with just one playlist on it, which should only be 10 cm Artist of the Week playlist, that’s me as well. It’s not my official account so please don’t follow it as I won’t be updating it.**
So there’s this genre of music called “chill rap” and though Sik-K may not identify his music as that, it definitely falls into that category. I’m such a fan of the sound… when the rapper can sing. And Sik-K actually does have a pretty nice voice.
Sik-K has been around for a little while. He was originally associated with AOMG but was dropped and now he’s been signed to H1GHR MUSIC. If you watch Show Me The Money, then you know that he was on SMTM 4 in 2015. I can’t really find much else on him but if you are into rap and like the chill sound, this may be the artist you’ve been missing on your playlist!

As someone who has been listening to kpop for years (knowingly and unknowingly), I was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too excited about this comeback. Or maybe, I expressed the right amount of excitement. Lee Hyori is one of those artists that I hope will continue to make music for as long as possible. If you’ve never heard of her before today is your introduction!
Most international kpop fans haven’t really heard of her and for the ones who have they know what a legend she is. I even saw on youtube someone say that she invented “idol culture” and I have to say I definitely agree. She’s been in her own kpop group Fin.K.L before making her solo debut. She’s hosted tv shows and was an actress as well before going on hiatus in 2015. She disappeared from social media and television for a while.
And now… she’s back!
I love her new music. I’m such a huge fan of her sound! If you haven’t heard her new songs yet I do truly advise you to check it out below! (And some of her older songs too!)
