In 2001, Yoon Jong Shin started a craze when he released his hit song “Pat Bing Soo (aka Red Bean Sorbet).” It was unprecedented; creating a song that is basically a recipe to creating Korea’s favorite summertime dessert. While there are a number of foreign songs that are humorously written like a recipe, “Pat Bing Soo” was probably the first kpop song to start the craze in Korea.
Food and Pleasure
Eating is one of the greatest sensory pleasures we can experience as human beings. Most of us probably spend the entire day craving something delicious and satisfying our hunger. There’s a saying that we live to eat, and that we meet friends to eat great food.
The basic taste sensations can also reflect the way we feel: sweet can be associated with love, while bitter can suggest the way we feel after a bad breakup. As such, there are numerous songs about food and the emotions it brings. In Korea, one of the most popular food-themed songs was Yoon Jong Shin’s “Pat Bing Soo.”
The lyrics for “Pat Bing Soo” will bring a smile to your face.
“Boil red beans/ caramelize the sugar in low hat/slowly simmer it/ice flakes specifically for bing soo/freeze it in the freezer/…pat bing soo pat bing soo I like you I like you so much/pat bing soo pat bing soo in the summer, there’s nothing better than you”
What do you think? The lyrics, or shall I say the recipe, is pretty funny isn’t it? Once you start listening to songs like this, you can’t help but feel hungry and you’ll find yourself poking your head in the refrigerator searching for something to eat. What better way to gratify your sensory pleasures than to listen to music as you eat?
Here are some food-themed kpop songs!
▼ Super Junior’s “Cooking? Cooking!”
▼ JOO & Leeteuk’s “Ice Cream”
▼ Haha’s Centimeter’s “Sweet Rice Cake”
