The song Viet Nam was composed by Kwon himself and Park Nark-jong with youthful melodies and joyful lyrics.

The lyrics “You are great Vietnamese; our great shouting; country Viet Nam Viet Nam is great; descendants of Hung King” are simple and repeated in the song, showing the love of an expatriate in Viet Nam.

“I wrote this song with my true feelings that I experienced in Viet Nam,” he said.

“Viet Nam has given me an abundance of creative inspiration. This new music video helps me to continue expressing my love and passion for the country and people of Viet Nam.

“Viet Nam surprises me every day, but I selected some of my interests that are exquisite art, traditional fashion, passion for football and warm heart.”

In the video, Kwon wears a white traditional long dress which was presented by one of his Vietnamese friends.

“The long dress is really beautiful,” he said.

Kwon graduated from the National conservatory of Firenze, in Italy, and worked as the conductor of the Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS)’s choir.

When he was a child he became interested in Viet Nam. During his first visit to the country, he was impressed by the natural landscapes, unique culture and friendly people.

He moved to work in Viet Nam in 2019. He has attended culture and music events in Viet Nam including the Korean-Viet Nam Culture Fair 2020 in Ha Noi and Music talk by Radio the Voice of Viet Nam.

He has also launched Go Viet Nam Go Go, Cha Ca or Peace, You Are in My Heart and Remember.

Viet Nam is the first time he has sang in Vietnamese. The video received 33,000 views after three days on YouTube on August 12.
