Dancers wore sangmo, a Korean folk arts hat with a string that is spun around as a dance. |

This cinematic masterpiece makes “LIT” feel even grander than it already did! TOMOONS are loving the Taekwondo version, and have said that no matter how many versions they release, “LIT” will never get old.
