This song was reportedly banned in some Korean elementary schools because students wouldn’t stop singing it. The song later went on to win Song of the Year in 2018.
Any time this song came on the radio at work when my co-worker and I were playing Korean music, we would immediately stop what we were doing and garble the lyrics in Korean.
When this song came on at the bar last weekend, no fewer than four of us started singing it loudly over our shots of soju.
What a welcome to Korea.
