Horan, the bookworm author
Did you know Clazziquai vocalist Horan was a book lover?
Well she is, and now she’s got a book coming out. But before you disparage her move outside her native kpop (or, k-alternative or k-electronica, rather), first consider the following:
Her dream in younger days was in “serious” literary writing; in adolescence her attentions leaned more toward music and singing, which eventually led her to her current status as half of Clazziquai’s vocal team. But her bibliophilic ways were still in evidence; she hosted a TV program about books for nearly a year and a half, EBS’s A Woman Who Reads, A Man Who Underlines [책 읽어주는 여자, 밑줄 긋는 남자]. And, for the past year she’s been book columnist for Men’s Health magazine, recommending and writing about books she’s read.
Those writings are now being compiled into an essay collection. The book will also include other pieces, most of which are based on music-related topics.
Her book, Horan’s Da Capo (“da capo” being a musical term indicating a reversion to one’s original state), will be available for sale starting the 17th.
(Horan has also formed a new acoustic band — for when she’s not busy reading, or writing, or singing with Clazziquai, or hosting TV programs — called Ibadi, whose first album is called “Story of Us” and goes on sale April 3.)
