[Soundbite] "Baby shark~ Cute shark~"

Children's song "Baby Shark" has simple lyrics and repetitive melodies. The English version of this song ranked a surprising 32nd on the latest Billboard singles' chart announced last Tuesday. This is the first children's song from Korea that joined the Billboard's main music chart. Released in 2015 by a Korean education firm, this two-minute song was adapted from a North American children's song. Since then, its English version was released and K-pop singers danced to the tune at their overseas concerts to spark interests in several foreign countries. As "Baby Shark" made it to the Billboard music chart, the song has become more popular both at home and abroad. Internet users worldwide are waiting to see if these cute sharks break the Billboard record set by BTS. Making jang, a technique of making soy sauce and soy bean paste by fermenting soy beans, has now become a government-designated intangible cultural property. The Cultural Heritage Administration announced that the process of making these traditional sauces as well as the sauces themselves were designated the nation's intangible cultural property No. 137. However, the CHA did not recognize any specific practitioner or group for preserving this technique, since making these traditional soy-based sauces is a routine custom and culture naturally passed down all over Korea. The CHA had designated the process of making kimchi as an intangible cultural property in 2017.
