Feel the Rhythm of Korea, LEENALCHI “Tiger is coming”

Enjoy wonderful attractions of South Korea with a lively, rhythmic sound!

Korean Tourism Organization collaborated with an alternative pop band ‘LEENALCHI’ and ‘Ambiguous Dance Company’.
Feel the rhythm of Korea with the music that is based on a traditional Korean folk tale and wonderful dance.

Three videos are reaching over 60 million views! It’s really fun and addictive.

Someone said “Initially found the songs weird but then it became weirdly attractive to listen to. And now it’s an ear worm!” Wow.. olalla

Lyrics are here
“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.

I Live Alone: Girl’s Secret Party 2020 (Spicy)

What I want to say first is that it’s really funny!

But the clothes and makeup are so powerful that you need to be a little careful. It’s really funny if you keep looking!

The three long members of “Home Alone”, one of the best MBC’s variety show, gather again! Girls’ secret party received explosive responses from viewers last fall and now it begins once more by Han Hye Jin’s call-up.

Expectations are high on what kind of different joy girls will present this time. A special home party at “Na Rae Bar” to celebrate Park Na Rae’s birthday! We invite you to this fun and unique party! (Source: Viki)

There is an organization called Korea Communications Standards Commission (KCSC) in Korea, so it is not too stimulating. However, this program is spicy because it only broadcasts on YouTube. I think that’s why they’re more popular.

Someone said “can’t stop laughing the whole episode!! LOL! they’re hilarious.. Georgina, Samantha, Maria… this is the secret party!”

I hope you’re happy to see this today. 🙂

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

[Korean Culture] Fashion Designer ‘Milanonna’ YouTube Channel

Jang Myung-suk, a 68-year-old fashion youtuber Milanonna who is emerging as a 2030 role model.
This is the first woman from Korea to go to Milan, Italy, and has been a fashion designer and cultural coordinator between Korea and Milan for over 40 years.

She said “I like challenges, and YouTube became one.”

She did not plan on launching a YouTube channel until personnel from Naver suggested on doing so.

“I had a keen relationship with my grandmother,” she said. “That is why I named my channel mila_no_nna, short for Milano nonna – nonna meaning grandmother. I hope people watch my video comfortably as if listening to stories from their grandmother.”

“I once commented that I do not want people’s clicks on my videos to be in vain,” she said.
“By disclosing stories about my life, I hope people will feel comforted, regain hope, laugh, and for those who are interested, learn more about Europe.”

[Korean Culture] Minature Cooking by Mini Forest

Do you know pork belly? Samgyeopsal(삼겹살) in Korean. This channel (Mini Forest) is amazing.. Especially sound…

Listening to ASMR will make you hungry right away.

I was so surprised at the details when I first saw this video. Even the vegetables are small!! Do you know the borrowers? Or Gulliver’s Travels?

When I watch the video, I feel like I’ve become that kind of person. This is a woman in her 50s, and I’m looking forward to seeing how big this channel will grow in the future.

I was surprised once that the chicken was fried so well, and twice in the beam project.

This is a traditional Korean food. Everyone knows this. Especially, middle and high school students eat it often.

It’s a very small world, but strangely enough, it gives me healing.

I hope today will be another day without corona blue!

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

[Korean Culture] YooA (OH MY GIRL) 1st Mini Album [Bon Voyage]

YooA (Hangul: 유아) whose birth name was Yoo Yeon-joo (Hangul: 유연주) and then legally changed her name to “Yoo Shi-ah” (Hangul: 유시아) was one of the lead vocalists and one of the group’s main dancers OH MY GIRL.

Oh My Girl (Korean: 오마이걸, also stylized as OH MY GIRL and OMG) is a South Korean girl group formed by WM Entertainment. The group is composed of seven members: Hyojung, Mimi, YooA, Seunghee, Jiho, Binnie and Arin.

Someone said “She’s like a nature fairy. She glows and it’s like she’s flying in the MV. YooA’s just perfect and stunning.”

Another said “her voice is so Magically Pure and throughout this MV I realised that she brought kpop genre to the whole next level.”

The title track “Bon Voyage” has a magical vibe and evokes feelings of being inside nature. YooA noted that it could be considered a unique song. “It’s a very dreamlike and mystical song, but the chorus has a kind of jungle vibe that changes the mood of the song,” she explained.

“You might feel that it’s dynamic and fresh. I thought it would be nice if you could feel comforted in hard times by thinking of Mother Nature.”

As this album marks her official solo debut, YooA said she felt very nervous, explaining, “I couldn’t even sleep. I’m not usually the type to get nervous, but I was.” However, she said that after promoting as a member of Oh My Girl for five to six years, she used the opportunity to work hard to fill up the stage with her own presence.(If you want to know more)

As a fan of OH MY GIRL, I hope YooA will do well! But it’s already going well, so I think there’s only time left for me to be happy!

LEE SUHYUN – Reflection ㅣDisney’s Mulan

Mulan is a 2020 American action drama film produced by Walt Disney Pictures. It is a live-action adaptation of Disney’s 1998 animated film of the same name, based on the Chinese folklore “The Ballad of Mulan”. The film stars Liu Yifei in the title role, alongside Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li in supporting roles

To save her ailing father from serving in the Imperial Army, a fearless young woman disguises herself as a man to battle northern invaders in China.

Lee Su-hyun sang the Korean version of “reflection” here, so I wanted to introduce it to you.

I like Korean, but I personally like the English version better.

Her voice is so pretty like a princess! It’s exactly Disney style!

I think Disney scouted her after watching this video.

It’s too bad to do just one thing, so I’ll put up the “Speechless” unaccompanied version (Aladdin Ost) and wrap it up. She’s the best.

Have a good day!

[Korean Culture] Haegreendal calming vlog

I have introduced it once before, and it is a vlog channel that makes me feel very comfortable.

Most recently, She made a video with the sounds of summer. As expected, the sensuous visual beauty is enhanced.

This 10 minutes will be the time to take a proper rest.

It was hard to introduce just one, so I brought a video that impressed me.

Watching this makes me so hungry. I’m so happy.

I’m going to go get something to eat right now.

And this is another video, and I want to introduce you because there are good words.

“We often live in anxiety, while forgetting about the fact that it too shall pass. We worry about the future that is not here yet. We waste our energy to stuff that’s not important. Today, I’m going to talk about how I comfort myself.”

I hope this channel comforts you.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!
