Drunken Tiger – 1945 해방 Review

Drunken Tiger is one of the groups that I discovered during the middle of my exploration of different Korean hip-hop. The ablum was released in 2005, a different age for Korean hip-hop because it mixes the urban feel of underground hip-hop while still being able to meet some pop environments.

The album is different because some of the songs could easily be recognized as pop hip-hop, but then the group changes and presents a song that contains much harder beats and lyrical delivery.

1945 해방 is a necessary Korean hip-hop album, it is a good impression of hip-hop during the mid 2000s and considering the newest release by the group, there’s still a lot more that can come from the group and Tiger JK.
