Girls’ Generation and Super Junior released a song named ‘Seoul’ to show support for the country’s effort in introducing Kpop to the world. When i read the title, I was like ‘Ok, this song is to promote the city’ but as I watched the MV, it has got more to it. It shows you not just the city and the people, but also the sweet and romantic feeling that makes you want to spend your Valentine’s Day in Seoul. Love the vid!
