K-pop Indie Gem: Sweden Laundry Written by Miyoko On December 21, 2014 Welcome back, Indie Gem-ers! This week we are featuring Sweden Laundry (스웨덴세탁소). No, not the K-drama of the same name, but a band who has been steadily rising in popularity, and who is responsible for some of the most relaxing, beautiful music I have heard in a while.If you are a regular Indie Gem reader, you probably know that my recommendations often fall in the punk/rock/electronic genres. So imagine my surprise when I fell head-over-heels for this duo whose music pretty much defines the K-indie “coffee shop” genre: romantic, dulcet tones, mainly mid-tempo, and a vocalist with a whimsical soprano range.

Korean Peninsula was “a land of leopards”
One may think of tigers as the fiercest animal that ever lived on the Korean Peninsula. There was, however, another species of large cat that was just as fierce as tigers, and even outnumbered them. They were leopards. In Joseon times (1392-1910), the number of leopards was large enough to enable royal families to bestow leopard skins as gifts for their retainers. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), the leopards in Korea belonged to a species subordinate to the leopards that inhabited the Russian Far East and parts of northeastern China.
