Have an Epik High concert right in your home

April 7, 2009

Do you want an Epik (har har) showcase in the comfort of your own home? Sure, who wouldn’t! Of course, most of us would like physical showcases at our houses, but Epik High has provided the next best thing. In lieu of music show performances, Epik High has put together a showcase of their entire “Map the Soul” album on both YouTube and


One thing I love about this method of album promotion is the intimate studio feeling. The whole group (which includes MYK and Asher, who plays the keyboard) gives a relaxed introduction to each song. We learn that “Top Gun” has been banned on pretty much every media device in Korea; they speculate the reasons, with one of them being the line, “I’m a serial killer,” which is actually a cute play on words–“I’m a cereal killer.” Another interesting tidbit is that “Scenario” is built upon movie titles (mostly Korean, but some Japanese and American). There are so many other things I could mention, but you should really just watch and enjoy. Also, there is nothing like Tukutz’s pointless swearing. I’m completely serious.

Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that the quality of everything is BRILLIANT. The sound has album-shininess (I almost thought they were lip-syncing at first lol), and the video is crisp and clear.

Part 1 (Intro, Believe, Top Gun)

Part 2 (Map the Soul – Worldwide Version {Acoustic Remix}, Cipher)
Part 3 (Free Music, Scenario)
Part 4 (Map the Soul)

(I apologize for writing the cheesiest posts lately. It’s just happening T__T)

    awesome! was this live? it sounds way too good to be live. I’m not insinuating that they lip-synced this, but maybe they recorded it and added effects, re-mastered, etc.

    I saw a behind-the-scenes video for this and that came out a few days before this, so they probably did alter the sound some. I’m sure in a controlled environment like that (as opposed to a huge stage with a limited amount of time and an audience of people), it’s not too hard to fix the sound to one’s liking.

    However, I did see Epik High do a live performance on Kim Jung Eun’s “Chocolate,”and it sounded pretty good as well.
