Introduction post

I'm so glad I found this community. You'll probably notice that I'm not the most active lj-er but behind my laptop I'll be biting my nails waiting for news on Nell.
Funny, seems a bit like destiny (if I believed in destiny) that I re-discovered them just in time for their comeback. I picked up "The Trace" on a trip to Korea two summers ago, and a lot of different, precious memories have tied to Part2 since then. By now, I know all the words to that song but somehow, I've never listened to any other album (out of fear of being disappointed? How can any other song come close to the beauty of Part2?). I got a hold of "Let it rain" recently and am completely overwhelmed. *___* No disappointment, just awe.
Originally, I listened - still do - to a lot of underground American rock, punk and even metal bands but my fave bands aren#t very active atm. I got introduced to k-pop, and as much as I love those guys... that's nothing to be passionate about musically. Now that I know Nell, I've got a band that can fill this gap, a band I can pour all my music-starved heart into. ♥
Sorry if this was tl;dr and basically a love letter to Nell.
In short, hi everyone! Nice to meet you

넬, 4년만에 컴백…20일 티저영상 공개

Rock band Nell

록 밴드 넬이 2월 새 음반을 내고 4년 만에 가요계로 돌아온다.

소속사 울림엔터테인먼트 측은 “현재 넬은 컴백 준비에 한창이다. 20일 컴백을 예고하는 티저영상이 공개될 예정이다”고 밝혔다.

넬은 2008년 11월 미니앨범을 낸 후 멤버들의 군입대로 활동을 중단했다가 작년 11월 22일 3년 만에 공연을 가지며 활동재개를 선언했다.

넬은 현재 30%대 시청률로 주말드라마 1위를 달리는 KBS 2TV ‘오작교 형제들’의 삽입곡 ‘마음을 잃다’로 관심을 모으고 있다.

보컬 김종완은 9일 방송된 MBC ‘스타 오디션-위대한 탄생’ 시즌2 이승환의 멘토스쿨 심사위원으로 깜짝 등장해 반가움을 준 바 있다.

넬은 몽환적인 사운드와 애절한 목소리로 많은 마니아 팬을 갖고 있다.

****Nell comeback after 4 years and a teaser will be released on the 20th! Which is tomorrow!****

New to Nell

I just found Nell half an hour ago. Downloaded and devoured Separation Anxiety and I must say, theirs is possibly the most beautiful music I have ever come across in a foreign language. I mean, I thought TVXQ was the best Korea could offer, since autotuned music repels me largely and though I have absolutely nothing against bands like Big Bang or SHINee or MBLAQ, their music just doesn't touch me. Neall, on the other hand...The first song I listened to was Gieogeul geotneun sigan. And it has left me speechless. Its been a long while since I've found a song that embodies that euphemism, "Melody has no language". I love you, Nell. Thank you for music that breathes.

I'm new here. Both to Livejournal and to the community. Hello everyone!

Question about their albums

Hello there.

I've been a fan of Nell for maybe a year now and find their music very beautiful. I like Jongwan's voice a lot. ^^

Anyway, I was wondering if any of you guys knows where I can purchase their CDs? Either online or in Seoul itslef. I'll be in Seoul for another week, and so far I just found four CDs and The Trace. Maybe one of you can help me out?

Thanks a lot in advance. ^__^

Hey ft. Kim Jongwan - Living Next Door To You (Eng ver.)

Korean vers.
Hey (born Kim Hye-Won) is a South Korean singer-songwriter who released her first album in 2001, and then her second in 2003. She had some sporadic recordings in the years to follow, mostly for soundtracks. Last year, she recorded a very intimate EP called Vegetable Love. Her tranquil voice combined with warm, simple melodies give me hope in an age of cold, dance crazed K-pop. The lead singer of Nell (arguably one of the best modern Korean bands today) joins Hey on the English mix of “Living Next Door to You”. Their voices blend wonderfully and make you forget that you’re listening to a sorta sad song.
