South Korean actress Clara is set to bring the “Gwiyomi” trend back from dead as she revealed that her upcoming digital song will be a follow-up to the original “Gwiyomi Song”.
The “Gwiyomi Song” was originally recorded by South Korean female singer Hari, who explained that the song is about the love between a girl and a boy. The song went viral last year due to a series of cute hand movements popularised by Jung Ilhoon, the rapper of Korean boy group BtoB. The rapper created the hand movements “Gwiyomi Player” through a segment called “The Aegyo Battle” (Battle of Cuteness) in South Korean variety show “Weekly Idol” back in October 2012.
Since then, many Korean celebrities and Asian netizens jumped onto the trend to show their own versions onto the internet.
