Dear TasteMakers,

Today’s Artist of the Week is bringing the “FIRE” this “SPRING”. She’s a fierce and talented lady who “YOU & I” both know is a digital-chart killer. Although she’s been on somewhat of a hiatus for the past eight years, “DON’T CRY”, because she’s back now to “CRUSH” her competition.

Park Bom (Queen Bom) says hello 👋

Without further ado, here are four Park Bom songs to soundtrack and accompany you all year round.

SPRING

Spring (봄)

This one was too easy, wasn’t it? In the spring, you definitely need to listen to Park Bom’s “SPRING.”

This comeback was a highly personal yet bittersweet one to her; for starters, “SPRING” is Park Bom’s first solo comeback in eight years and it featured 2NE1 bandmate, Sandara Park. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that the title, music video, imagery and lyrics all have symbolic meaning in their own respective ways.

But, perhaps all these separate pieces weave together to show that although she may be ready for this new season in her life, she’ll always have a deep appreciation for her roots and where she came from.

SUMMER

SHAMEFUL (창피해)

Fake (ex)friends beware, Bom is coming for you in “SHAMEFUL.” The upbeat rhythm further embellishes the IDGAF lyrics and overall message of the song. “SHAMEFUL” will dually serve as your summer dance and empowerment anthem.

FALL

MY LOVER (내연인) 

Fall = ballads, no doubts about it.

Fall is the season for ballads and “MY LOVER” can definitely compete with even the most seasoned fall ballad favorites.

WINTER

YOU AND I

Gahhh, one of my favorite 00s KPOP songs of all time. I can actually still recall where I was exactly when I listened to “YOU & I” for the very first time.

Everything about this song, from the intro to the lyrics and music video are a 10/10 for me.

BTW: Any BLACKJACKs here remember Bom’s legendary “YOU & I” NOLZA performance with her older sister accompanying her on the cello? ➡️
