In the name of boosting interest in Korea’s traditional markets, M.I.B‘s Kangnam and veteran trot singer Tae Jin Ah came together to create a track entitled “Traditional Markets” that fuses the sound of popular dance songs with a trot-inspired melody.
The song was composed by Tae Jin Ah. The melody and rhythm of its verses are reminiscent of classic trot songs, and then it breaks out into a danceable beat in the chorus.
The lyrics include mentions of several famous traditional markets that can be found throughout Korea. The song explicitly encourages listeners to go to traditional markets in order to save the economy.
Tae Jin Ah and Kangnam are taking part in a cross-country tour of traditional markets in order to support local businesses. Their first stop was in Seoul’s Yongmun Market on March 19.
