Our company had a karaoke nite last night and one of the employees wanted to sing a Korean song.  It was a song by a group that I haven’t heard in ages and brought back flood of memories from more than a decade ago.  Okay, here’s a small Korean culture lesson for y’all.  You have not have heard of Seo Taiji and the Boys but for Koreans, they are like the Beatles, or like Elvis.  They were the ground breaking group that started a huge rock/hip-hop movement in Korea.  The parents hated them and the kids couldn’t get enough of them.   The were actually short lived as a group but while they were together as a group, they made a huge impact in Korean music industry. 

Here’s my favorite song by Seo Taji and the Boys.  There’s also a famous dance craze that they started with this song with waving of the arms….
