This is an occasional series of short articles on the story behind a particular piece of Korean music. This includes traditional Korean songs and melodies, rock, pop or more recent K-pop. The different authors investigate what made these songs hits, why they were written, why they are significant and what they mean.

#1 “Through the Night (밤편지)”. IU (아이유), 2017

#2 “Into the New World (다시 만난 세계)”. Girls' Generation (소녀시대), 2007
