Do it And Just Go For It! offers a glimpse into the life and music of the members of the Solutions, a rock band noted by Jimmy Douglass.
The Solutions is a 4-member band comprised of vocalist, guitar player, bass player and drummer. They may not be a household name yet, but those in the music industry have kept their eye on the rise of this band. As a 4 year-old band which started out in a small studio in the Hongdae area, they have already held over ten solo concerts and participated in major festivals such as the SXSW in the US and the Summer Sonic festival in Japan.
This book which lays out the road to better understand the music of the Solutions is as fresh as the band’s upbeat and sunny music. The members themselves who all strive to find their path talk about how they started out in music, how their passion for music progressively grows, and how they are making their way through the uncertainties of the future.
The book is a collective story of the band’s members, who are each unique and talented in their own way. Readers will especially enjoy the photographs of the performance scenes in different settings, as the book presents the history of Korean musicians travelling from one world stage to another. The thoughts and growth of four musicians presents an alluring read.

The band members of the Solutions are Park Sol at vocals, Naru at guitar, Kwon Ohkyung at bass, and Park Hansol playing drums. “Love Your Dear” was a collaboration with Jimmy Douglass, a producer and engineer for artists like Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and JayZ. Douglass once praised the Solutions in a Korean documentary program, as a band that has the high potential to succeed on an international level.
Their music is a mix of modern rock and synth-pop and receives wide praise from domestic and foreign music industries alike. The band has been in a tour of 6 cities in 5 European countries in 2014, and also took part in the SXSW in the US and the Summer Sonic festival in Japan. They say their life is about “communicating with the audience through good music and having fun performing on stage.”
