MV Review: San E's "Where Did You Sleep"

San E Wants to Know “Where Did You Sleep”

My first exposure to San E occurred during his time as a host for the Gurupop Show. He had a goofy sense of humor that never failed to make me laugh. But due to this being my only exposure to him, I didn’t know how serious San E was about rapping — boy was I missing out.

San E started out as an underground rapper, winning recognition for his rap skills at the 2010 Public Korean Music Awards. Shortly afterwards, he joined JYP Entertainment as the company’s first solo rapper.

However, JYP didn’t promote San E as much as they should have and San E left the company after his contract expired earlier this year. He chose to join Brand New Music which is home to artists such as Verbal Jint, Swings, and Phantom

What do Psy, Park Bom of 2NE1, "Voice Korea" winner Son Seung Yeon, and One Way member Kim Michael Jung have in common besides being a part of the K-pop phenomenon?

One word: Berklee.

It is perhaps surprising to some, but Berklee College of Music has attracted some of the biggest K-pop idols--and rising stars--and has become an unlikely participant in promoting the K-pop movement.

One such name is perhaps the biggest international K-pop icon of the moment-Psy.

Psy attended Berklee College Music after dropping out of Boston University to pursue his passion in music. According to Boston.com, Psy took courses like ear training and harmony, as well as music synthesis and production.

Coincidentally, Psy's labelmate Park Bom of 2NE1 also studied music at Berklee, even doing so without her parents knowing due them disallowing her to pursue a career as a singer
