It’s so different and unique and now we listen to Yung Yung’s music all the time in the hostel. Although we don’t understand the meaning of the songs, we’ve somehow picked up the lyrics and the tune since it’s always on repeat. When we heard about his Pheinai music tour coming to Delhi, we were so excited to meet him. We’re beyond glad that we got to listen to First kiss, our favorite song in his live concert. We now know the meaning of some of the songs especially First kiss and we think it’s just so beautiful. We had a very fun time! We sang our hearts out and we jumped and screamed out loud and now we are all legitimately big fans of Yung Yung and all the artists today.”
