Meet Sweden Laundry, the indie duo behind the upcoming drama
The quirky drama Sweden Laundry is set to premiere tomorrow. The series, which stars Song Ha Yoon and Teen Top's Changjo, shares its name with the indie Korean duo Sweden Laundry, who will provide the soundtrack for the show. In anticipation of the show's premiere, let's get to know the girls behind the name.
Sweden Laundry is made up Choi In Young and Wang Se Yoon, and the duo made its debut in 2010. Choi In Young takes the lead on vocals, while Wang Se Yoon plays the piano. According to the pair, they chose the interesting name of "Sweden Laundry" (세탁소) because a laundromat is a place where people can take their dirty laundry to make it clean. Similarly, they hoped that their songs would cleanse the hearts of listeners. In their idealized version of Sweden, it is a place where people can work without feeling burdened or tired.
It is fitting, then, that in the series, Song Ha Yoon's character is able to feel people's troubles through the clothing they bring to her laundromat, and she helps them ease their pains.
Here is Sweden Laundry performing "The Time We Were Together" live for Off the Record. Their music really is sweet and soothing!
