THROUGHOUT lockdown periods our thirst for travel has been reduced to watching destination videos from our living rooms.
One of the most popular of these has been the series 'Feel the Rhythm of Korea' by the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) which has hit the mark with both older and younger generations.
Its videos introduce the traditional and modern charms of various regions in Korea with a unique mix of Korean traditional folk and hip-hop music. Each clip not only shows the traditional and the modern as well as healing practices and cultural heritages, but also shares the distinctive lifestyle of Koreans in a very unique way.
Korea's famous hip-hop label AOMG and Higher Music worked on the soundtracks to create a mixture of K-hip hop and folk music that matches each region and transports the viewer to the best sights and scenes in all Korea.
