A picture of him is below. But you will have to guess which one is him.
아래의 사진 중 하나는 그의 사진이지만, 여러분은 어느 사진이 그의 사진인지 추측해야 할 것 입니다.
He is interested in all kinds of things, but especially vinyl music records.
그는 많은 것에 관심이 있지만, 특히 음악 레코드판에 관심이 많습니다.
Vinyl records were the main format that music was sold in from around 1956 to 1990.
음악 레코드판은 약 1956년 경부터 1990년경까지 판매된 음악의 주요 형식입니다.
Before 1956 most music was sold on the 78 rpm shellac disc format and after 1990 it was sold on the compact disc format.
Now (2005+) music is mostly distributed in digital format. Which is an efficient but somewhat boring format (in my opinion).
This website is mostly concerned with Korean music artists. Especially, it is interested in vinyl records by Korean artists (and Korean music) that were pressed (made) outside of Korea in countries such as the U.S., Japan, the U.K., Europe, etc. However, the website will also include information about the odd South Korean pressing here and there.
At the moment Mic Dover is collecting vinyl records by Koreans (and Korean music) that were pressed (made) outside of South Korea. To him these are like historical relics, that he believes will be harder and harder to find as time passes.
The purpose of this website is to document information and also receive information from other people about this subject matter.
Please note: I have a lot more discs in my collection to put up on this site but so far have only done as many as I’ve had time to do. Please keep checking as I will try to add at least 1 every couple of weeks over the course of 2014.
