Sungha Jung covers Ben&Ben’s “Leaves”

This is the Phil-Korean crossover we never knew we needed!

Korean guitarist Sungha Jung released his own cover of “Leaves”, originally sung by Ben&Ben.

Learning about this, the OPM band couldn’t help gush at the popular guitarist who they referred to as their “childhood idol”.

Andrew De Pano, a member of the 9-piece band, commented under the video, which Jung also liked.

This isn’t the first time Sungha Jung did a cover of a Filipino song. He also published guitar and ukulele covers on Eraserheads’ “Ang Huling El Bimbo” and Up Dharma Down’s “Tadhana”. He has also performed in the Philippines in 2017 and 2018.

Cheska De Ocampo
Always up and about, Cheska was once asked if she always meets different people every single day. Well – not always – but almost because it is part of her job description and because she is actively involved in church. Having the opportunity to join KStreetManila, she combines two of her loves – writing and Korean culture. During her downtime (which somehow rarely happens), she is either scrolling through Twitter, writing for her blog, trying to be fit, reading a good book, or appreciating beauty and fashion.
