The Korean Killing Moon

The Korean Killing Moon

Musician Luna Lee is here to brighten our day with another unique gayageum cover – this time taking on Echo and the Bunnymen’s brilliant 1984 track The Killing Moon. We bet she could pull off a mean version of Bedbugs and Ballyhoo.

Korean Clearwater Revival

Musician Luna Lee is back to play us another wonderful interpretation of a rock and roll tune, this time taking on the 1970 Creedence Clearwater Revival track Have You Ever Seen the Rain. There’s just something so soothing about the sound of the gayageum.

“I’m gonna get some peaches, gonna put ’em in a pan…” You don’t need to know K-Pop boy band BTS to get a chuckle from Bad Lip Reading’s latest music video. Funny thing is, these could be the actual lyrics to IDOL, and it would make just as much sense to us.

Musician Luna Lee’s latest cover track is an arrangement of The Doors’ 1967 classic People Are Strange. The evocative style of the original lends itself perfectly to the twangy sounds of her gayageum.

We’ve come to truly enjoy the twangy Korean sounds of the gayageum over the years, played deftly in the hands of musician Luna Lee. Here, she performs a stellar medley of Steppenwolf’s Born To Be Wild, The Beatles’ Come Together, and The Police’s Every Breath You Take.

Gayageum of Thrones

Gayageum of Thrones

Just in time for the big Game of Thrones season finale, musician Luna Lee is here to perform a wonderful Korean-style cover version of composer Ramin Djawadi’s theme song from the hit HBO fantasy. We can imagine dragons flying overhead as this track plays.

Korean State of Mind

Korean State of Mind

Yoo Jei, a then 16 year-old Korean girl turns in an surprising and soulful performance of the Billy Joel classic New York State of Mind during her run for the title on the show KPOP STAR back in 2015. We can’t believe she didn’t win.

Korean in 5 Minutes

Korean in 5 Minutes

For those of us who primarily speak English, languages without Latin characters in them are generally pretty daunting to learn. But Sam Gellman shows us a way to understand basic concepts of the Korean alphabet in a snap. We already feel so much smarter.

Marvel at the power of teamwork: South Korean High school students cheering for their soccer teams turn themselves into pixels, combining to form detailed – sometimes animated – images.

NA Debut: Blade & Soul
