HENNA FOR THE HEART
Jaihoon reflects a new, hidden face of the today’s youth: One that is unwilling to compromise and fall prey to the all-pervading materialistic culture. Henna is cosmetic; Jaihoon’s verses aren’t.
And the heart sings. Notes that defy tradition. Lyrics that stir up empathy. Notations that bring to your mind a yearning for eternal peace.
