But IMO no less important parts are the voices and the music. Efficiently, they render no fear in their awe just acknowledgment to beauty of the event. I don't speak Korean (I think it is) and sound of voices are just perfect and sufficient to conduct emotional state facing this experience. Music is perfectly timed too.
That is an awe-inspiring and highly educational video. I just had to watch it repeatedly, and then go back and replay certain parts. At the C2 point, the details of the lunar edge are amazing. I was surprised at first that you can't see the mountains of the Moon extend past the limb of the Sun, but it makes sense -- there is no light to show them once they pass that arc. After totality, once the aperture is changed to capture the corona, you can again see the irregularities in the lunar edge. Then, at the C3 point, as the Sun begins to emerge again, the diffraction in the light is really amazing and so beautiful.
I am not certain if this is an artifact, but I think I can see some variations in the corona as the video progresses. But with the camera motion and changes of settings, I cannot be at all certain about it. On this time scale, the prominences appear as frozen features.
I noticed that the diamond effect was switched left-right. This movie had it at clock positions 5 and 11 in that order whereas I would expect it to be at 7 and 1. Is it just a case of how the camera is mounted?
Wow, like owlice said, goosebumps!! again!!! Comparing the voices in the background with my memory of the event, I'm sure it's just a difference in the sheer number of people witnessing, but where I was (University of SC campus) there was just overwhelming cheering as C2 approached, then the collective gasp when the diamond ring appeared. Still, this is an amazing video of something I got to check off of my bucket list...

Where I observed it there wasn't anybody within sight or sound, so for me this was entirely an expression of nature. Interesting to see videos made around large groups of people. Both ways of experiencing an eclipse have their merits.
Ionospheric Bow Waves and Perturbations Induced by the 21 August 2017 Solar Eclipse
Geophysical Research Letters: 26 December 2017
<<During solar eclipses, the Moon's shadow causes a large reduction in atmospheric energy input, including the stratosphere and both the thermosphere and ionosphere (∼100–1,000 km altitudes). Theoretical studies since the 1960s have predicted that the Moon's supersonic shadow should generate atmospheric bow waves, similar to a fast-moving river boat. However, observations were geographically limited for these weak and complicated waves. In 2017, high fidelity and wide coverage ionospheric observations were made using a North American Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) ∼2,000 receiver network. Eclipse passage generated clear ionospheric bow waves in electron content disturbances emanating from totality primarily over central/eastern United States. Study of wave characteristics reveals complex interconnections between the Sun, Moon, and Earth's neutral atmosphere and ionosphere.>>
