Japanese Breakfast, the musical project of GRAMMY nominated artist and New York Times Best Selling author Michelle Zauner, shares a Korean language version of their hit single “Be Sweet” featuring guest vocals from So!YoON! of Se So Neon.
“We thought it would be fun to put out a special Korean version of ‘Be Sweet’ preceding our upcoming performance in Seoul. Im very grateful Yaeji helped me with the translation over a year ago,” says Zauner. “So!YoON! is one of my favorite indie artists in Seoul right now and I’m so happy we got to collab.”
Japanese Breakfast is currently on tour, dates include headline shows, festival stops at Newport Folk, Fuji Rock, Incheon Pentaport, Primavera, and dates with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Florence + The Machine, Yo La Tengo, The Linda Lindas and Cate Le Bon. All dates below.

Zauner’s acclaimed memoir, Crying In H Mart, which she’s currently adapting for the screen for MGM’s Orion Pictures, has been on the New York Times Best Seller list for 51 weeks.
