Mellow Monday! Part 9, Haon & Vinxen – Barcode

My journey to discovering this song was a little backwards. I found this song whilst watching the Korean talent show Dancing High. Team Hoya’s Jisung and YoonJun danced to this as part of their ace performance and I really loved it. I added it to my playlist and went on about my day.

Recently I decided to watch another Korean talent show – sue me, they have really great talent shows over there and their a lot less bland than the drivel we have in the UK. This time I watched School Rapper 2. I really love the concept of this show as it really shows the talent the younger generation harbour, plus I love the mentor choices in this season.

Cue my sudden realisation that the above song was from this season.

I really loved watching their friendship blossom. I love how Haon, completely oblivious to the atmosphere in the room in there first episode, wanted to befriend him. And the fact that Vinxen wanted to produce a song with him after hearing his cypher.

When Vinxen raps about mental health, depression and anxiety without embellishing it, is something to be in awe of because it’s that raw nature that just pulls you to him. Couple that with Haon’s infectious positivity and high energy is just so refreshing.

As you can probably tell I just really love them. And this song. Everything about it to be extremely honest.

I will also link below the amazing dance performance from dancing high where I originally heard this song. Talking about the performance brings me to an entirely new realm of ‘fangirling’ – by far one of the best performances on the show for me.

I added the version without the almost constant instant replays of things you just saw haha

Definitely check out both videos and really appreciate the pure genius in both.

I will be posting the last few songs tomorrow because I went out yesterday, and by the time I got home I was beyond tired and knew half of what I would write, would make absolutely no sense haha.

Let me know in the comments if you enjoyed the song!
