I asked on Facebook what favorite albums readers’ had in 2013. There were a lot of album releases this year and unfortunately it’s impossible to cover every single one. For each album that’s presented on the site, there are probably five that are missing. This could be for a number of reasons, like availability of an album online outside South Korea or missing the album release entirely.

But at the same time you, our readers, also listen to music and have your own personal favorites and these are presented here.

Thanks for taking time to give your opinions. I’m sure musicians in South Korea appreciate that there are fans outside of the country who enjoy their music.
