봄봄봄이 왔네요~ (Spring, spring, spring is here~)
봄봄봄 (Spring, spring, spring) by Roy Kim is one of two very popular songs in Korea during this time of year. It is a fun and light hearted song that describes the beginning of spring and remember meeting someone for the first time.
This song is very fitting for the spring season because it invokes a happiness and excitement that was masked by the cold winter. In the music video, there are scenes of cherry blossoms, which are everywhere in Korea, There are designated places, such as the Han River and Jamsil Lake, where couples, families, and just about everyone goes to take pictures. Because the cherry blossoms only last for about two weeks or so, these areas are always busy and packed with people. It is nice seeing everyone dressed up getting ready to take pictures and enjoying the nice change in temperature and scenery.
Even from SNU, there are plenty of cherry blossom trees planted and they give the campus a beautiful lively feel. It definitely makes walking to class more bearable. The spring has made me fall in love with Korea even more and it’s going to be so hard to say goodbye.
