“A tiger is coming down, a tiger is coming
A beast is coming down through the deep valley in the pine woods”
I can’t write the full text because of copyright, but there’s a comment in this clip that’s been translated incredibly well. He hit the rhyme!
LEENALCHI is an alternative pop band comprised of four traditional vocalists, a drummer, and two bassists, delivering musical storytelling through solos, choir, rapping and dance.
Particularly, Jang Young-gyu, basist, scored the films “Gokseong” and “Train to Busan.” It’s famous!
“We all sort of know what pansori is. But at the same time we are not at all familiar with it. Very few people enjoy the music…. So what now? We thought it is our job to make the traditional music sound simply like popular music, not pansori,” Jang added.
Have a good day! I want to introduce you ‘Korean Culture’ more!
