Stephen Colbert's Pop Music Debut...In Korean [VIDEO]

Different versions of this video have been hanging around on the web for weeks now but this is one of the best and even though it's been around a bit, it's still really hilarious. I can't think of any other modern comedic actor around right now who so deftly balances the ridiculously silly with the incredibly biting and perceptive. This one obviously falls into the former category, but it's just a fun treat for you all as the weekend approaches. Check out the video to your right and enjoy.
