Giyoumi/Kiyomi is the latest of viral craze over YOU TUBE. There are already so many parody videos and many people find it so cute.
WHAT is Gwiyomi? I was clueless about this as well until I saw some videos uploaded by some of my friends on FB. I didn't even watch the video until the end as I couldn't see what's so cute with all of the actions.
The Gwiyomi Song, or Kwiyomi Song (귀요미 송), is a K-pop single by South Korean
singer Hari and was released on February 18, 2013. It was inspired by a
gesture from rapper South Korean Jung Ilhoon of boy group BtoB. The gesture is called 'Gwiyomi Player', which became an Internet meme in October 2012 followed by its first appearance on South Korean reality show by SBS MTV named MTV Diary. The gesture has also inspired many Asian netizens to upload their own versions onto the internet.
Yesterday, my eldest daughter came back and told me that her teacher has asked her and her friends to perform the Gwiyomi Song for the upcoming Teachers' Day Celebration. The teacher changed the lyrics like this:
Now, I'm not so sure why the teacher wants the children to perform that song. I just feel a little bit uneasy about the meaningless performance and it doesn't really teaching the children to appreciate the teachers. Teachers Day Celebration should include fun things but they also should be meaningful and teaching the children to appreciate teachers. Right?
