Jay Park is now a regular on Korea’s version of comedy show Saturday Night Live. A recently shared sketch that parodied a popular telecom commercial with Akdong Musician gave a little shout out to “Dong Young Bae” dancing machine.
The original CF (in k-drama style):
The SNL parody
(The part referring to Taeyang starts at 0:53)
Young Bae’s name was probably used because Akdong Musician’s original line in the commercial was “Doo-Bae-Ga Doi” meaning “To become doubled.” (Referring to double points, and using the word “Bae”)
In the parody, Jay Park recites and sings a little of LOAM’s lyrics and then they sing “Young-Bae-Ga-Doi” meaning “To become Young Bae” – spoofing the tag line of the original commercial – and turned it into a dance academy CF. (The singers are repeating : “become youngbae, dong young bae, youngbae, dancing machine youngbae. Dong Young Bae!”) He closes out the parody dancing some of LOAM’s choreography.
Thanks so much to YB-518%, HJ and Silly for the links and translations!
