Comparative History of Ideas and Biology alum Che Seyhun ('11) has been busy. A 2017 Neddy Artist Award winner, Che has been organizing artists of color to eat together and honor their communities. This year he launched his new G'ma Project, which brings together real stories about real grandmas from all over the world. Check out the music video he made for his halmoni, Kim Ki Soon:
Che: [in English] "This is for all the grandmas out in the world, but especially my grandma—halmoni! This song is for Grandma, you know I love you so! I just wanna' let you know, every day my love will show! For this song is for Grandma, you know I love you so! I just wanna' let you know, every day my love will show!"
Che: [in Corean] "Grandma you're the bestest! I love you very much! Because I get to see you every morning, I'm so very happy! Grandma you're the bestest! I love you very much! If you ever forget this, just listen to this song! Halmoni! I love you! Live long, healthy, and prosper!"
Grandma: [in Corean] "Thank you, that's enough."
Grandma knows best! Well done on the beautiful project, Che! <3
