YOUR THOUGHTS ON:
The underground scene in Korea?
I think underground scene doesn't exist anymore in Korea. Anyone can become famous in a second and be loved by their own music. But to become rich as a musician, rappers have to show up at ‘Show Me The Money’, the most famous hip-hop TV program in Korea, and have to open their eyes to K POP.
我认为现在的韩国已经不存在地下音乐。如果要名利双收的话，rapper 们必须参加韩国最有名的 Hip-Hop 电视节目“Show Me The Money。而且必须融入 K POP 音乐元素。
