I got a shocker of my ears today. I came across this video on Facebook, posted by Latorial D. W. Faison, and my ears were pleasantly teased, leaving me wanting more. Who knew there was so much “Seoul” (sorry, I couldn’t help myself >_< ) in South Korea? Definitely not me, who’s just learning about South Korea and their culture, food, Kdramas, KPop, Hallyu and goodness knows what else. Unfortunately, this video is not yet on Youtube, otherwise I would be sharing this all over the place. It’s sung entirely in Korean, but to my English speaking ear, it almost sounds like English. The ONLY word I recognized was “Sarang –사랑“, which is used – a lot – in romantic KDramas and rom-coms, if you don’t know that word as a KDrama fan, you must be reading subtitles with the volume down. Other than “neh – 네 “, “Sarang –사랑” is used quite a bit. Click the video below to hear what I’m raving about.
If you’ve read any of my posts about music, you’ll know I love all kinds. I know the language of music is universal, and I’m trying to figure out why I am blown away by this video. When I do I’ll let you all know. But to THE HERITAGE CHAPEL GOSPEL CHOIR of Yongsan, South Korea, you showed your “Seoul” (there I go again!) in that song. B-E-A-utiful. I know I enjoyed hearing it just as much as they seemed to enjoy singing it.
