Exploring Cultural Complexity and Emotional Depth in just Min’s “Expat Living”


just Min, a Seoul-born and Hong Kong-raised singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist based in the bustling heart of New York City returned with his highly-anticipated second release, “Expat Living”.

just Min is not your typical artist; he’s a musical alchemist who effortlessly bends and blends genres, creating a sound that is uniquely his own. As a multi-talented artist, he possesses a diverse skill set that allows him to make songs that are not only melodically enchanting but also lyrically profound.

just Min’s musical journey began with the release of his debut single, “Seoul in the Summer”, in July 2023. This song served as an introduction to his distinctive sound and showcased Min’s stellar vocals and his impeccable knack for storytelling, leaving listeners with an undeniable sense of awe.

His new track is a commentary on the privileged upbringing of the artist, who grew up surrounded by spoiled kids” Set against the backdrop of alt-pop melodies, featuring elements like the soothing strumming of a ukulele and rhythmic drums, “Expat Living” creates a striking contrast with its poignant and, at times, depressing lyrics. This duality encapsulates the complexity of just Min’s experiences and the emotional depth of his storytelling.

Just Min’s upbringing as a “third culture kid” informs much of his artistry. He understands what it feels like to belong everywhere and nowhere simultaneously, a sensation that resonates with many who have had multicultural or nomadic upbringings. Through his music, he aims to shed light on the unique struggles and challenges faced by individuals like him. He wants those with similarly confusing backgrounds to know that their stories are just as important, if not more so, than his own.
