Group members, who’ve recognized one another since they have been younger, missed out on an training within the harsh years after the Korean War, and in 2016, all of them took an grownup training class to learn to learn and write the Korean alphabet, Hangul.
Last 12 months, Park got here throughout a rap efficiency on the web, and the group determined to study rap from their Hangul instructor and make a senior hip-hop group, writing lyrics about their rural life.
Their debut got here at a college play on the similar group centre the place they met for his or her Hangul courses.
Inspired by the success of Suni and the Seven Princesses, 4 different rap teams made up of older South Koreans have sprung up in Chilgok, some shaped with the concept of staving off dementia and loneliness.
Park’s proud 27-year-old granddaughter, Kang Hye-eun, believes her grandmother is probably the most well-known resident of Chilgok.
“I thought only celebrities become popular on social media, but my grandmother is there now.”
