Description of the issue

This album is consistently being matched as the Korean version rather than the English version. Confirming that both the Korean version and English version are listed on MusicBrainz with fully fleshed out metadata. However, it’s not showing up through the Roon’s identification, no matter how it is searched for unfortunately.

Just some additional context after getting even more of my library in - I’ve noticed this is a repetitive problem across a number of albums that are often released in various languages. Roon frequently wants to match the “main” Korean version, to the detriment of causing English and Japanese versions to be considered the Korean ones.

Manual matching (which I don’t mind doing) doesn’t even have the various language versions so it makes it impossible to correctly match.
