Seo Taiji's Sogyeokdong

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzEebkOJA-I] This is my current fav Kpop song. For the historical/political background behind this song, see this post: http://askakorean.blogspot.sg/2014/10/history-behind-seo-taijis-sogyeokdong.html I prefer Seo Taiji's version to IU. I don't think her light voice is suitable for such a serious song.
