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.
