"Heaven" - Epik High
This song is aloe vera lotion for a sunburned heart. Don't know how else to describe it, but when I listen to this song I literally feel like I'm drifting away on Cloud 9. "My heaven...is you."
Hula Girls theme song - Jake Shimabukuro
Jake, best known as the ukelele virtuoso for his stirring cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," composed this song for the Japanese movie, Hula Girls. A heartwarming tale of what people can create when they work together in community for a common cause and pursue their passions. And you get to see cute girls dancing the hula!
"The Girl Who Can't Break Up, the Boy Who Can't Leave" - Leessang
Leessang consists of rap duo Kang Hee-gun ("Gary") and Gill Seong-joon ("Gill"). The female singer here is Jung In. This music video stars Korean singer Hyori Lee, and actor Ryu Seung Beom (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance).
A classic love story-gone-haywire, but done up with some clever costumes and a creative narrative thread. You see their relationship progress through the cars they drive and the behavior of the couples around them. And all those masks! I wonder how many people they hired for this video...
