San Toki is a Korean children’s song that I believe almost every Korean child knows. I knew it from an early age, before I can even remember how I learned it — it just might be the most widely known Korean children’s song there is. The song is about a mountain rabbit (san toki) who disappears into the hillside, bouncing while she runs, and everybody wonders, where does she go? That’s all there is to it! You can find out the mountain rabbit’s answer in the second half of the song. I am joined on vocals by Jean Cook.
