The 귀요미 song

Am I slow? Apparently this 귀요미 song / chant has been really popular in Korea these days, and parodied by quite a number of stars.

귀요미 is just a slang describing a person as 귀엽다 (cute). The original person doing it was supposedly 정일훈 (Il-hoon) of BTOB.

The chant / lyrics is really simple. It’s like addition.

1더하기 1은 귀요미 2더하기 2는 귀요미 3더하기 3은 귀요미 4더하기 4는 귀요미 5더하기 5는 귀요미 6더하기 6은 쪽쪽쪽쪽쪽쪽 귀요미

1 plus 1 is cute. 2 plus 2 is cute…… 6 plus 6 is cute

The original!

Here’s another rendition! SOOYOUNG doing 귀요미 = awesome 😀

I don’t think anyone can get sick of this. So one more? Seo In Gook!! 😀 😀

    It reminds me of Hyun Bin’s chant in Secret Garden for some reason.

    It’s my first time seeing this too :O
