giant korean monster dance party

Saw this on io9 last week, and it's so delightfully weird I had to share... This is a clip from the 1967 South Korea monster movie Yongary, Monster from the Deep -- a shameless Godzilla ripoff, from the looks of it.

Sure, kaiju creature movies this eara are a dime-a-dozen, but have you ever seen a monster from the deep dance to a surf-rock rendition of the Korean folk tune "Arirang"? Behold, the beast getting down:

Awesome. This film was apparently remade as Reptile 2001 in 1999, but unless it also has a totally bitchin' dance number, I can't see how it could possibly be as good as the original. Go Yongary, go!
