Throughout this week, I have been going back to “Hate Everything” by Golden, so it had to be featured.
Kim Ji Hyun is a South Korean singer-songwriter born on June 16th, 1988. He debuted as an R&B/Soul soloist in 2015 with the EP – Coming Home. At that time, he was signed to JYP Entertainment and known as G.Soul. After leaving JYP in 2017, he signed with H1ghr Music and later changed his stage name to Golden in 2019.
“Hate Everything” is actually the title track of his first EP under the name Golden. This song has two versions – English and Korean. I listen to the English variant more.
His voice on this song is pure bliss. Honestly, Golden is one of the most beautiful/powerful voices in the K-r&b scene. Plus, the emotion he pours into each song is just incredible. I absolutely love the lyrics for “Hate Everything” because they are very relatable and touching. Thankfully with the English version, international listeners can understand everything at once, and the Korean one is basically a direct translation.
I hope you all enjoy listening to this song. If anyone wants something more lively from Golden, try listening to the full EP, which is also titled Hate Everything. You all are bound to enjoy at least two or more tracks on it. Apart from the Korean version of “Hate Everything”, all other songs are in English. If I was to describe this EP, I would call it a ‘Soul Healer’ and rating wise, it gets a solid 10/10 from me.
Here is the EP on Spotify –
