No problem! I'm always glad to post songs people like
However, since I feel that having too many NK songs on the thread could potentially scare other South Koreans (actually I'm pretty serious, though I doubt there are any at this point of time) I'd like to ask you... not to do it too much. You know, all in moderation and balance.
Sure, that sounds fair enough to me. And don't worry, North Korean songs aren't all I listen to anyway
I have no intention of scaring people off, of course, but I do have the intention of demonstrating that there's more to Korean music than just K-Pop! So I'll quit posting like two NK songs every night, but I see this as an opportunity to post an even greater variety of (non-North) Korean songs here.
I trust you won't mind just one more North Korean song today, though
There is a North Korean song and a South Korean song, which are very different from each other but both have the title 김치깍뚜기. IIRC, that means 'radish kimchi'. I've seen a few North Korean songs apparently praising simple foods, like potatoes and sweet potatoes, and I guess this song similarly praises radish kimchi. I hope it doesn't start out too loud:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1VGNbEoCfc
And here's the South Korean song with the same name. It's a trot
. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong (because my Korean really sucks and I may have no idea what I'm talking about here!), but I think in this one, the singer is talking about touring the US and getting fancy food but longing for simpler Korean food (including radish kimchi):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtPz-81QtpE
