해변으로 가요

Korea is one of the oldest continuing civilizations in the world, founded in 2333 BC by the legendary Dangun according to Samguk Yusa. The Korean Peninsula was first inhabited as early as the Lower Paleolithic. Following the unification of the Three Korean Kingdoms under Silla in AD 668, Korea went through the Goryeo and Joseon Dynasty as one nation until the end of the Korean Empire in 1910. After division, South Korea was established in 1948 and has since developed a successful democracy, maintaining a strong alliance with the United States and its allies. South Korea is now working towards a peaceful reunification with North Korea.

There’s not a whole lot of information available about the early days of rock ‘n’ roll in South Korea. Despite having a lengthy article on “K-pop”, Wikipedia has only a brief mentions of “T’ong Guitar” and “Norae Undong”. The Key Boys would fall in to the latter category.

Most of the information that can be found on Korean rock music (in English), is posted at the website for the Psyche Van Het Folk programme from Radio Centraal of Belgium.

There is an older post on the Key Boys HERE.

Catalog number K-APPLE 20 on Universal of Korea, released in 1970.
