You know how some people can wait patiently for their turn in a conversation? How some people can contain their enthusiasm and sit quietly, silently, for hours? Yeah, I’ve never been one of them. No I am, unfortunately, an interrupter at heart. I have learnt to curb it pretty well these days but when I find something interesting (read: ALL THE TIME) it’s hard not to want to share it with every one of my friends RIGHT. THIS. MOMENT. No wonder I love music. It’s people all talking at once but instead of interrupting they harmonize.
My latest obsession has been the Korean indie-duo Akdong Musician or AKMU for short.
AKMU is made up of siblings Lee Chan-Hyuk and Lee Soo-Hhyn. The two talented stars participated in the Korean talent show K-pop Star 2 in 2012 and won the competition together. In 2013 the duo signed a contract with YG Entertainment, a large entertainment company in South Korea, and on April 7th 2014 they released their first album titled “PLAY”.
Their music can be described as light-hearted hip-hop/R&B with beautiful harmonies and a sweet young feel to it. The two siblings play well off each other and their songs feel perfect for early summer. They remind me of slow days and of road trips with friends.
Watch their cute music video for 200 % and see how they make being the third wheel the most adorable thing this side of Tuesday.
