Jaurim (자우림) is a popular mixed band that has been around since 1997. If you’ve been a K-Pop fan for a long time, you probably know their iconic hit song, “Hahaha Song” as the song is pretty funny, and the music video for the track had the members performing in a ring while a massive fight was going on around them. By contrast, “Idol” is a much tamer song but is still their style.
