Music Video: Uzuhan – Mung Beans and Tofu
Watch Uzuhan (formerly J.Han) music video for “Mung Beans & Tofu,” a single from his latest project, Uzuhan: Flight 3.
“‘Mung Beans and Tofu” is a song hoping to bridge the gap between first generation immigrant parents and second generation Korean American (3rd culture) children. In this record, Uzuhan explores the meaning and context behind a commonly asked question in Korean households: “did you eat yet?” a press release stated.
“For Korean parents this phrase resonates deeply – it’s not merely rote repetition. It was a way to check on friends, during their time of immense poverty, to see if they were doing alright physically, mentally, and spiritually. Uzuhan shows this perspective to give his parents’ generation a voice – an opportunity to teach. He writes this song in hopes that 3rd culture kids, like himself, will take time to listen, learn, and love the legacy they come from.”
