How would you react if a K-Pop band showed up at your go club?

Sunday August 6, 2017

The video for GFriend’s new single looks like any other bouncy K-Pop video, except that it takes place in a Korean go club populated with the usual cast of old men hunched over go boards. GFriend (여자친구) has a new album coming out called “Parallel,” and the first single is “Love Whisper” (귀를 기울이면). They filmed the video at the Jongno Kiwon baduk salon outside of Seoul, where the baduk players’ reaction to the dancing, singing pop stars alternates between bemusement and obliviousness as they focus on their games.
