Sad Legend - Sad Legend (1998)
I really wish I could provide a link to their Bandcamp or something, but I have a feeling this CD is long out of print (it's going for between $55-$200 on Amazon right now!) and the band seems to be currently inactive. Maybe it's on iTunes? I don't know. Anyway, you can find it on Youtube (sounds like a low quality upload, but whatever), so check it out if you want!
|Sad Legend - classic lineup|
|I'm not exactly sure which incarnation|
of Sad Legend this is, but thought it
was a fun pic so I decided to include it.
|Your typical cheonyeo gwishin, being all creepy.|
If you wake up in the middle of the night to find
THIS standing in the middle of your room,
you may be in trouble.
Surprisingly, this music seemed to go rather well with the snacks I'll be talking about tonight. "Why?" you may ask. Because we're talking about a legendary snack that's in a sad state of affairs right now here in The Land of the Morning Calm. Korea, we need to talk about your Cheetos situation. The trend right now is to have everything be honey-butter flavored or sweet and salty, and Korean Cheetos are no exception. For one, everyone knows that Cheetos should be cheesy, or at least have that option should you want just some good ol' original Cheetos. However, in Korea, sadly, you don't have that option unless you go to an international mart or something. From what I've seen at least, you unfortunately only have three flavors to choose from on a regular basis: BBQ, Spicy & Sweet, and Honey Cheese (ugh).
|"Spicy" and Sweet|
|BBQ...I have no idea what the fuck is supposed to be|
going on in this artwork.
Finally, we have the dreaded Honey Cheese...
...actually...these aren't too bad! I spoke too soon! I had assumed that they were going to be garbage because of the previous two disappointments, but these are surprisingly decent! They're still a bit too sweet, but at least you can actually kind of taste the traditional Cheetos cheese flavoring or whatever insane chemical shit they use to get Cheetos to taste the way they do. However, they're still too sweet (too much honey flavoring) and not salty or cheesy enough, and I find myself enjoying it less and less the more I eat. But then again...ahhh! I don't know what to think, can't make up my mind. I just wish there was, at the very least, a regular, original Cheetos option. Anyway, this is arguably the least offensive of the bunch.
