Stories Heard From a Girl in an Opium Den

Byul's new CD '아편굴 처녀가 들려준 이야기 Stories Heard From a Girl in an Opium Den' is out now, and more information is at their site here. One of the songs on the album (which compiles a lot of their best stuff from the Monthly Vampire CDs over the last ten years, along with a new track or two) is Pacific:



More information about the release is also here, and here you can listen to another song on the CD, Blue Marble, which sounds a bit like Seefeel backing Spandau Ballet after taking codeine and playing backward... or something. Here's the video for the title track:

The album is being released on vinyl in the US by Burnt Toast Vinyl, and at their site I found this video of Byul's remake of 리듬속에 그 춤을 (the mid-80s Kim Wan-sun song written and produced by Shin Jung-hyun which I posted here):



Worth noting is that the Pacific CD (first video above) also has an mp3 disc collecting some of their earlier songs - between it and this new album you basically have a 'best of' collection...

Oh, and I just remembered Byul's remake of BoA's 'No. 1,' which can be listened to here (or the entire tribute album can be downloaded here).

Did you know that Wonder Girls have covered a Shin Jung Hyun song? Their new song Me, In is based on Shin's Beautiful Woman.
