New Lee Sang-eun album

Daum has a kind of an event concerning the new album by Lee Sang-eun to appear soon. I still have her album Gongmudohaga from almost 10 years back hanging on my sidebar to show my appreciation; many of her later albums as well are worth giving an ear. This promotion page at Daum gives an opportunity to hear some of the new tracks, in case one downloads a separate program and doesn't browse with Firefox, so I'll have to wait for another occasion.
Lee Sang-eun has usually had a mix of English and Korean lyrics in her albums; judging from the track titles, this time there seems to be only two English-language songs, which is good. Her pronunciation of English is good (I'm not in a position to judge that...), but lyrics quite awkward. Korean suits her after all better. With the title of the album she could have used some better judgement, considering all the myriad of "topias" in Korea like the cap-maker Captopia, which used to have its main office for a short period in one of the alleys where I did fieldwork: "Romantopia" is as flawless Konglish (or Japano-Konglish) as can be.
