Go, Mo Kin, Go!

This three-year-old xylophone-playing madgrrl is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!

She couldn’t possibly be any cuter, unless, perhaps, she were singing an adorable little song about how she loved being kissed by her parents.

  1. I’m convinced that she’s either not three or that she was chosen at birth to do this type of thing and has been raised to know this, and only this.

    But on the plus side, it pretty much guarantees that she has enough food, and probably her family too. At least for the next couple of years.

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Too cute!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Stephen, I’ve seen North Korean videos of literally scores of very small children doing exactly this kind of thing. They groom ’em all from a very young age to be unbelievably cute and good at whatever it is they’re trained to do.

  3. I’m convinced that she’s either not three or that she was chosen at birth to do this type of thing and has been raised to know this, and only this.

    Perhaps so. Although, I’ve known kids whose parents foisted some “talent” on them since birth and ran them ragged, and very few of them ever seemed like happy-go-lucky kids. In other of the videos I watched of Mo Kin, she was running around and giggling wildly. Like a typical three-year-old. πŸ˜‰

    I think she just replaced the handholding otters as the “cutest shit evah!”

    That is the most adorable video I’ve seen in a long time. What a cutie!

  6. You realize this is how Bjork started.

  7. I was just thinking about this some more. By the American way of counting age, she’s actually just two. And that’s what was bugging me about her age.

    It is really nice to hear about the other videos, though.

  8. **THUD** (I just died from all that overwhelming cuteness!) I really needed that brightener today.

    She is Shirley-Temple quality cute. But I do worry about anything that comes out of North Korea. (Interesting that the voice-over and subtitles are Japanese.)

    You know, Liss (et al), I was with you through the xylophone video, but I kind of feel like the cuteness of the singing video is so extreme as to push things into pod-person territory.

    Does that make me a bad person?

    I notice that she sings about how much she loves here father and mother. North Korea is an officially atheist country so at least it shows you don’t need religion to in order to have a family unit and, who knows, family values.

  12. that video actually creeped me the hell out. I’m not a kid-hater (actually, I work with kids that age and love ’em), but it was just so…I don’t know. rehearsed? bizarre? over-performative? really creepy.

    I thought it was kind of creepy. The jerky quality of her movements reminds me of puppets.

    I’d check the It’s a Small World ride at DisneyWorld — one of their animatronic kids is missing.

    She IS cute, though, in a creepy sort of way.

    If you want cute, here is cute that I don’t think raises the legitimate suspicions raised above.

    Cute kid. Kind of creepy robotic performance though.

    She is probably a student at a music school and spends most of her time there away from her parents in order to ensure she loves the state more than her family. I’m surprised the song is about her mother and father, as north korean songs are typically about kim il sung or kim jong il.

    I thought she was adorable. And it’s not robotic or jerky. She’s still small and uncoordinated, and she’s mimicking the postures found in traditional Korean dances.

    I don’t usually like kids, but this was cute. And yes, she’s talented. Musical timing is not easy, and certainly not at that age.

  19. Amy

    Okay. Wow… I’m sorry but if you’re lucky enough to be a “genius” how much does it suck to be a genius in XYLOPHONE playing. Wow. all I can say is: poor kid.

  20. There is similarity with another kid forced to perform music for kids, with a similar name: Mo-zart.

    Play that zylophone or your parents will be slave labourers in North Korea forever.
