Beloved indie duo Bolbbalgan4 and singer-songwriter 20 Years of Age (real name Hwang Dae Hyun) have teamed up for a beautiful new acoustic track that has already won over the public in Korea.
On June 14, the trio released a music video for their collaboration We Loved, in which 20 Years of Age and Bolbbalgan4s Ahn Ji Young act as a melancholy and contemplative couple heading towards a breakup. The video itself is what you might imagine while listening to the calming track, with plenty of soft colors and sunlit scenes that are a perfect fit for enjoying on a summer day.
We Loved was released for download on June 13, and has already taken over the charts in Korea. As of June 14 at 10:30 p.m. KST, the song is No. 1 on all major realtime charts (including iCharts own realtime chart), and No. 1 on four out of six major daily charts.
After the group reached No. 1 on Melons realtime chart, Ahn Ji Young posted on her Instagram to write, Everyone I love you truly.

This is far from the first chart success for the popular duo Bolbbalgan4, who appeared on Superstar K6 in 2014 and made their official debut in 2016. They released a full album entitled Red Planet in August of that year, and their songs such as Galaxy and Tell Me You Love Me swept the charts in Korea.
Their huge popularity in the country was recognized when they won year-end awards including the Rookie Award at the 31st Golden Disc Awards, Indie Genre Award at the 2016 Melon Music Awards, Song of the Year for “Galaxy” at the 14th Korean Music Awards, and more.
20 Years of Age is the duos label mate at their agency Shofar Music, who debuted in 2013 and recently released a mini album last December.
