Korean schoolgirl’s cover of Adele’s ‘Hello’ surpasses 7 mln views

November 9, 2015

It has been five days since, the YouTube video of a South Korean schoolgirl covering Adele’s latest single “Hello” was released. Over that period of time, its view count has vaulted over seven million as of Monday and continues to rise steadily.

Mashable and UK Cosmopolitan, among others, reported last week that a Korean schoolgirl’s rendition of the British diva’s new song had “everyone stopping dead in their tracks,” stunned by her “astounding” voice and “passionate, heart-wrenching emotions that Adele has become synonymous with.”

“If it’s even humanly possible, she sounds more convinced of her pain than Adele does,” reads a report by New York Magazine.

The singer is an 18-year-old student from Seoul Music High School.
