J Rabbit, "Happy Things" (music video)

A talented Korean musical duo on their way to becoming a YouTube sensation. Video Link They're on Facebook and Twitter, here's their website, and here's their YouTube channel. (via Reddit, where there is a gross and racist comment thread so just ignore that please, thanks Joe Sabia)


  1. Now that’s some Grade A charm! Talent too. Hope they go far!

    I just watched some of their other ones too. They work so well together, and she really has a great voice.

    1. Wow, if I ever feel depressed, that ought to fix it. How can you not smile with that much happiness going on?

    2. OMG, that is so freaking cute and slick! (Good slick!) I can’t believe that Korean Bossa Nova is possible, never mind so much fun.

    3.  I was just listening to this while surfing on another tab. It took me a while to realise that the soundtrack to the “Pacific Rim” Trailer wasn’t part of the track.

  2. There’s no great musical resemblance, but it makes me think of the theme song from Totoro. And that’s not a bad thing.

    I don’t get Reddit. I’m not a regular reader, but whenever someone points me to something on Reddit it’s excellent and whenever I go randomly looking over there it’s a swamp.

  3. Funny, I had checked them out a few months back as part of an indie music hunt in South Korea.  I’m glad to hear they are gaining fans.

  4. Every band in Korea seems to have a happy song — Ja U Rim’s Hahaha song is the first one I thought of:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVyh3_bTFRs .  

  5. So that´s what it feels like when your heart is melting like frost in the first mellow breeze of spring.

  6. The Korean starmaker machinery (apologies to Joni Mitchell) is a vorpal monster that usually gloms onto the latest barely-legal sensation, drains her blood for obscene profit, then chews her up and spits her out.  I can’t figure out whether these kids (probably more than that, but most Korean women in their 20s look like teenagers to me) are actually bypassing that racket, doing this in what looks to be a pretty nice home studio (but what do I know), or whether this is some really well crafted PR shtick by their manager and a big commercial studio. 

    Either way, their attitude is seriously infectious.  Wow.

  7. This is just a sweet and cute little performance. The singer is adorable, and the piano player has amazing musicianship chops.
