Like many Asian countries, music in South Korea during the 1970s, was heavily influenced by American music, including the protest folk of Bob Dylan and others. A music scene developed, especially around the US bases, with musicians performing for the US military as well as the local population. Some great singers and songwriters emerged including Shin Joong Hyun, who produced and influenced many others. Here's a selection of atmospheric 1970s Korean Psychedelic Folk, some with a Bluesy twist from this period. Plus two tracks of 1990s folk pop/rock and a recent track from Japanese/ Korean folk singer/songwriter, Pak Poe. Full track listing http://www.farsidemusic.com/radio/030419_tracks.html
