K-Pop Pick Of The Day: Lalala

Track: Lalala | Artist: Mighty Mouth (feat. Soya) | Album: Lalala (single)
Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

It’s been drizzling on and off at Kotaku HQ for a few days now, which makes me appreciate this ode to summer pool parties all the more. (Not that there’s enough space in New York City for a pool party, anyway.)

Mighty Mouth is a hip-hop duo that debuted in 2008 with Sangchu and Shorry J, with Soya as an oft-recurring featured guest (along with Lalala, she also collaborated with Mighty Mouth on Tok Tok and Bad Boy). Soya is a talented singer in her own right, which isn’t surprising, given her pedigree — she’s the niece of Kim Jong Kook, who you may know from Turbo and/or Running Man.

Sadly, as with depressingly many of my favorite K-Pop artists, Mighty Mouth is no longer active. Their last release was in 2012, and after an unsavory scandal involving Sangchu and possible illegal prostitution in the army, I doubt we’ll be seeing more of them. Soya seems to have fared somewhat better, with a recent 2018 release.

But, on the bright side, we can still appreciate what they did create, and Lalala is a song I suspect I’ll be blaring every summer for a long, long time.

Jesus Christ, these K-pop scandals that I keep hearing about in each successive “Pick of the Day” keep getting more and more bizarre.
