Korean artists EXN (을씨년) and lIlBOI (릴보이) recently released the best hamburger song of 2022, a funky number that encapluates the true essence of the Gen Z era, a true love-hate relationship between a girl and her hamburger.
Who Are They?
EXN (을씨년), born Joo Hee-won (주희원) is a South Korean rapper who debuted under Unusual Sound in 2021.11
Whiel Lil Boi (릴보이; stylized as lIlBOI), born Oh Seung-taek (오승택) is a South Korean rapper who debuted under GRDL as a member of Geeks in 2011. He later debuted as a solo artist in 2018.12
On the outside, the song itself sounds like an inner battle between a woman and her love of hamburgers. However, when you dive deeper into the lyrics, it becomes clear that it could represent any type of social connection, one where love and hate co-exist side by side. That's why the track is so relatable. Who hasn't experienced those kind of feelings and emotions at some point in life?
This song could easily be an anthem for all love-hate relationships, one that is shared by people of every identity, whether it's flesh and blood or just a burger. Yet, in all honesty, and partially due to our never-ending devotion for sandwiches both big and small, we truly hope her and the hamburger ride bilissfuly into the sunset together.
Sandwich is life. Sandwich is forever.
Regardless of its meaning, one thing is certain, it's easily the best Hamburger song of the year!
