MANILA, Philippines – The hype over the Oscar-winning song “Let it Go” from Disney’s “Frozen” reached Korea as a viral parody in a television show there tickled netizens.
The television show “Star King” in Korea’s “SBS Network” showed a Korean male performing as the movie’s main character Elsa – with some special effects.

To add to the effect, two men were also spraying the makeshift snow behind the performer.
What made the video more hilarious is that the camera angles in the parody were similar to that of the movie.
