Im Chang Jeong, “Open the Door”
This is a song I can’t BELIEVE I didn’t think of posting earlier! Im Chang Jeong has taken new ownership of “Open the Door” with his neo-trot cover of the song originally released by the WonderBoyz. Reading the YouTube comments, you would think that the Wonderboyz’s version doesn’t exist, and while it might receive a viewership bump from the popularity of Im Chang Jeong’s version, for all intents and purposes (and as sad as it may be) it might as well not exit. Chang Jeong’s version is not only insanely catchy, it is also accompanied by a video that features numerous celebrity cameos and creates a story that I would say far outstrips “Gangnam Style” in terms of hilarity.
This may not be the new “Gangnam Style” — two catchy tunes with goofy music videos released by middle-aged Korean men strikes me as too similar to allow Open the Door to go viral — but I would not be surprised if this will see 빠빠빠-level success. I’ve seen nothing but positive reception of this song, and for a good reason.
