Not surprisingly for a Kim Min-gi work, this is a song of affirming the beauty of the human heart, of innocent children in particular. Kim juxtaposes three images of children in pristine scenes of nature, to tell us the world we live in can truly be beautiful, that what we are accustomed to seeing is not necessarily all there is to it. It is another piece in his line of works that sends a life-embracing message.
He gave the song to Hyunkyeong and Youngae (현경과 영애), a female student duo formed at Seoul National University in the early seventies, who were a few years junior to Kim attending the same school. They released this and other works on their first and only LP, and it became quite popular for amateur students' work, receiving fair amount of radio play and leading to appearances in many university events. They only sang in college circuits completely shunning commercialism and disbanded with graduation as they had originally planned. If anyone ever thought nobody in this world is averse to fame and wealth, I would say both Kim Min-gi and the duo Hyunkyeong and Youngae are counter-examples to that. They also made the unusual choice to do solo vocals by taking turns and to sing in unison rather than harmonize when they sang together, perhaps as a show of belief in the beautify of unadorned human voice. This song is a prime example of that.
Their LP record has now become a cult album of sorts, highly sought after in the nostalgia music market along with many others from the same era. It is no surprise at all, as it is one of those shining gems that came out in the dawn of Korea's modern folk music.
