Up - Epik High (feat. Park Bom from 2NE1)

Although I’m still excited mortified something that Gangnam Style continues to blow up and that K-pop has reached somewhat global proportions, I wish some of the more “quality” tunes would get just half the promo - like this feel-good, hipster-hop power anthem from Epik High.  It has crossover appeal written all over it.  I mean, can’t you see a joint like this blowing up all over American radio if it were performed by say, Far East Movement featuring Rihanna?

P.S.  Big ups for the shout out to South Korean Olympic fencer Shin A-Lam towards the end of the MV.
