KPop has been kind of a global hit in the last 10 years, and has been a frequent subject of this blog, but it’s also good to know its more humble origins:
This is a famous song called “Itaewon Freedom”, celebrating a famous district in Seoul that is more open for the gay community (hence the “freedom”). It clearly predates the current KPop fad. 🙂
Also, the singer in the middle is J. Y. Park who is now a big music mogul in KPop (namely JYP Entertainment), and the force behind such groups as Wonder Girls, 2PM, 2AM and Rain.
And now whenever you hear the phrase “Itaewon Freedom”, now you’ll now. You probably didn’t care either, but hey, you learn something everyday.
And wheeeeerrrrrreeeee iiiiiiisssssss Namsan Tower anywayyyyyyyy?
