3 In Korean Culture/ Korean learning journey (:

춘향전(春香傳) – 사랑가

OMG. Those who know my blog / know me will know that I’m super in love with pansori, especially the 사랑가 rendition by the famous pansori performer 안숙선. The next time I’m in Korea, I’m definitely going to see her perform live!!

Sarang-ga is a song depicting the love story of Chunhyang. It’s one of the most famous folktales in Korea and is the classical love story of the country. ^^

In any case, I have been listening to different performances of the songs and here’s a few that I really like!!

My personal favorite!!

Love the instrumental here!

And for those who are totally not into pansori, perhaps this rendition will make you more interested. Sungmin and Hyorin did a really awesome job! I really like sungmin’s voice in this.

I have also been following the lyrics and listening to the mp3 here. 

 이리 오너라 업고 놀자, 사랑 사랑 사랑 내사랑이야

사랑 사랑 사랑 내사랑이지

MY FAVORITE LINE!

And omggg I want this CD!!!!

p.s. sorry for going all crazy on you guys ^^;

    Thanks for posting this! I’ve never heard of Pansori and now that I have… I love it! My favourite is the same as yours. 😀 I’m kind of obsessed and singing along with the lyrics.
