Flow Dabbler held their 6th concert “Back to the Old School” on November 13 in the basement auditorium in Shalom Hall. Flow Dabbler is a hip-hop music club and managed at the expense of its student members. The president of Flow Dabbler is Park Woo-bin, a sophomore in the Department of Library and Information Science. Flow Dabbler’s motto is “Let’s make all kinds of songs listeners can enjoy.” All songs are written by members of Flow Dabbler. Its seventeen members prepared for the concert over a six-month period.

While they got ready to perform, they felt nervous and self-conscious. They were especially concerned due to delays with the sound equipment and fears they would either forget song lyrics or get a poor response from the audience. Once they got on stage, however, they felt excited. More than half the auditorium was filled with an energetic and enthusiastic crowd. Prizes, a match-making event, and guest performances by hip-hop club Owechim and dance group All Clear raised the excitement.

Flow Dabbler performed nineteen songs ranging from sweet to exciting with diverse lyrical content. The songs performed were “Memorializing the emperor on an expedition”, “Put your, Put your”, “Phantom”, “In the cafe”, “Rapper”, “Go away”, “Funky Flow D”, “Badr Hari”, “Confession”, “Keep my eyes closed”, “DirtyBass”, “Like it, Like it”, “On the street”, “So High”, “Collaboration”, “Twenty”, “Part-time job monster”, “Thank you” and “Hip Hop”.

Lee Eun-ji, Ji Min-su, and Park Woo-bin sang “On the street”, a nice and touching song written from the viewpoint of a man dealing with the sorrow of a break-up by walking down the street remembering happier times. Park Woo-bin, Lee Kyung-yong, and Lee Jong-hyun performed “Collaboration”, an impressive song about friendship and appreciation for all members of the club.

Flow Dabbler ended the show with their song “Hip Pop”, which the members said was the best part of the show.
