Shin Hae Chul (신해철, 1968-2014) was one of the rare breed of singers who stuck to songs of contemplation rather than the usual love and relationship fare. Here are two more of such songs of soul searching. As Life Draws to An End Before Us (우리 앞의 생이 끝나갈 때) is a musing on his younger days and the dreams he cherished at the time, as well as alament on how the changing times and forces of the world throw him astray and make him lose his own self. It clearly shows what was the driving concern in his life and work. Fly, Little Chick (날아라 병아리) is an interesting little number about a boy’s friendship with a little chick. It looks back on a little creature which, despite having little to show for itself, gave him a profound realization on life and friendship.
