Here's an attempt to grading. Tracks with * I consider essential listens or classics from a western point of view of listening, as tracks to check out for sure because they seem to stand out as such. This makes them also very suitable for western radio show airplay. Tracks that are only underlined can be considered fine tracks you might better check out as well, but I am not sure how essential they really are. Another listen might give a slightly different result. There's a portion of trot involved that lead to take out a few more or less tracks or not.

This compilation of songs from I think the 50s to 70s, I guess all from the same composer, performed by different singers (Lee Mi Ja, Park Jae-Ran, Kwon Hye Keyong, Wicky Lee and others).

The songs vary from sweetly and subtly arranged trot-based ballads to 60s waltzes and ballads, arranged with strings, accordion, flute, most often by a small effective old time combo, everything is in fact pretty enjoyable in an entertaining fashion.

Although I enjoy all pretty much, I give most preference to the ballads and genres outside the trot genre. For people looking for a relaxing form of somewhat exotic, orchestrated and rather romantic sounding old school pop music, this is a good reference point.

If I understood the google translation well, he composed over 2700 works; lived rather celebratory, and became 81.
