Japanese Breakfast and So!YoON! Collab on Korean Version of "Be Sweet"

Japanese Breakfast (Michelle Zauner), the Grammy-nominated artist and New York Times bestselling author, has teamed up with the South Korean artist So!YoON! (the solo project of Hwang Soyoon) of Se So Neon to create a special Korean-language version of “Be Sweet.” The track appeared on Zauner’s adored 2021 album, Jubilee.

“We thought it would be fun to put out a special Korean version of ‘Be Sweet’ preceding our upcoming performance in Seoul,” Zauner said. “Im very grateful Yaeji helped me with the translation over a year ago. So 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 and will continue to play a mix of headlining dates, festivals, and shows alongside Yo La Tengo, Florence + The Machine, The Linda Lindas, Cate Le Bon and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
