i have been introduced to a plethora of new pop music through my students, both at the university and the elementary school in goryeong. the wonder girls and rain seem to be on center stage in the korean pop world at the moment. rain was named as one of time magazine's 100 most influential people who shape our world....he was also featured in people magazine's 2007 "most beautiful people" list! here are my fifth graders with yet another rockstar performance!
lee sangeun is a korean folk-rock singer who i first heard, of all places, in the local mexican restaurant! i fell in love with her sound right away.....this is her song called "bird."
