Watch Me Rap in Korean

Oh the things I agree to do…

Five months ago, while Vat and I were in Korea, wrapping up the last stop in our year without English, Vat told me he had a different idea for our final video. I was happy with the other three, so I told him he could do whatever he wanted for the final project.

“I want to do a video with us rapping in Korean.”

That was the idea. What’s more, he wanted to share the bewilderment of trying to understand a foreign culture and language. So from the lyrics, he specifically picked out Korean expressions to try to convey the strangeness of being outside your comfort zone.

Now, after considerable delays due to trying to coordinate our post-travel schedules, the final video for Korea is here:

Yes, it’s as weird and ridiculous as it sounds.
