Representative Song:
  Someday [먼훗날], from Marginalization


널 이젠 잊겠어 
I will now forget you
내 깊은 그리움으로 이밤을 지새운건 아니었는데
I did not spend this night longing deeply for you
이제는 닦아 낼 눈물이 없어
But I have no more tear to wipe
하고픈 말 서럽게 쌓여만 가고
The words I want to say only piles on sadly

기억되는 그리움의 아픔이 너무 두려워
So afraid of the remembered pain of longing
홀로 남겨진 이 순간 원할건 없지만
This moment, left alone, although I have nothing more to want

정말 널 사랑해
I really love you, 
차마 그말 한마디 못한 내가 너무나도 원망스러워
I blame myself for not being able to say just that one word
먼훗날 다시 널 우연히 마주칠수 있다면
Someday if by chance I may see you again
사랑했다 말할거야
I will tell you, I loved you.

Why is that this creator important?
Among the followers of Korea's rock scene, this placement may feel high -- as a result of simply in terms of musical quality, one will create a robust case that Yoon Do-Hyeon isn't significantly special. however it's Yoon's amount of activity that creates him significantly authoritative. In terms of relative influence, the nadir of Korean rock was lateNineteen Nineties through early 2000s. The airwaves were completely dominated by boy/girl bands, and it appeared that rock was being driven to the brink of extinction. Yoon Do-Hyeon Band was one among the few bands that stuck it out throughout those dark times, trudging on whereas churning out quality albums.
Rock created associate sudden comeback in 2002, and Yoon was at the guts of revival. Yoon's band was one among the bands that wrote a number of the foremost common songs for Korean national association football team enjoyingwithin the 2002 FIFA tourney. it's not associate exaggeration that Yoon Do-Hyeon Band, along side one different rock group (to be introduced during this ranking later) junction rectifier the renaissance of Korean rock that's reverberatingto the present day.
This is already a considerable action, however Yoon's influence on K-pop scene was arguably larger in his differentactivity -- enjoying host of the television show, Yoon Do-Hyeon's personal letter, from 2002 to 2008. personal letterwas a music-focused late night show, during which singers interspersed serious however entertaining dialogue with the host with real, live performances. The show's impact on the K-pop scene mustn't be underestimated. once differentmusic-related TV shows were slowly turning into varied levels of insults to intelligence, personal letter was rigorousconcerning the selection of real, proficient artists to feature, and strict concerning the necessity to perform live. a lot ofof that rigor was driven by Yoon's personal force, as associate intelligent creator who invariably cared concerning the standard of pop in Korea. Yoon's energetic and humourous temperament was an imperative ingredient that allowed the show to travel on sturdy for seven years, acting as a take a look at|acid-base indicator} test that showed who was real, and who was made.
Interesting trivia: though ne'er confirmed, it absolutely was wide suspected that Yoon quit personal letter as a result ofthe pressure applied by Korea's current conservative administration, as Yoon was a lively voice of Korea's liberals
