Today I learned that everything Korean is hot in Thailand; Korean food (kimchi mmm), funky clothes (and nice hairdo's) and of course, Korean music is the bomb here. This was nicely illustrated when we stumbled upon a crowd of screaming Thai girls this afternoon. Apparently Korean boyband Super Junior was performing, heavily sponsored by a Thai brand for talc powder. The skytrain station was packed as was the big square in front of Siam Paragon mall.
While we were having dinner nearby, girls came running past - yelling, with their camera's ready. Since I hardly ever see Thai running (a sign at the skytrain entrance actually tells you not to run for the train), it was quite an experience.
This song below has been haunting me everywhere. And guess what? It's Korean too!
