This is not bad.
I think it’s a surprisingly interesting sounding song (you know, by KPop and more especially U-Kiss standards). I don’t think it’s grab you by the throat awesome (like Neverland) but it can stay.
Most of them look good, although I have a few words for whoever dressed Dongho (mostly, don’t sex him up, he’s a child). But I also think Dongho’s style doesn’t so much match the rest of them. Everyone’s in bold patterns and he has that asymmetrical bullshit style going on (I have no judgements). And I think we should take a moment to recognize that Eli looks much less like a butch woman in this video.
But otherwise, I really enjoyed Hoon’s voice in this one (which is kind of new). He convinced me not to hate the song right away. And Kevin has some really great parts- both singing and dancing (I liked his dance with the woman).
And I didn’t take offense to how they used backup dancers (I’m looking at you Big Bang).
Solid work U-Kiss. Solid work.
This is good enough that I will listen to their next/other songs?
And I like their boots.
Cool review, bro.
Ugh. I definitely prefer GD when he’s with Big Bang, because then there’s less screen time of the child-faced, pompous tool.
This video was chock-full of the things that initially repulsed me about Big Bang. I’ve come to love a lot of their music and definitely like some of their music videos, but it took time to look past the original sophomoric impression they made. A narcissistic-seeming boy-man strutting around in varied and lamentable outfits while performing subsequent acts of incivility and impropriety is abhorrent to me. The fact that it then gets labeled ‘swag’ is just imbecilic, to me. I saw no “ornamental festoon of flowers, fruit, and greenery.” (Thanks Oxford Dictionary.)
Also, Taeyang, that hair is horrendous on you.
Well, this blog has been in an unexpected and unofficial hiatus for five months. Sorry about that. Titrit and I started personal Tumblrs and sort of let this one fade from our concerns. It’s a lot easier to reblog silly things than to formulate and articulate opinions.
So if you’re interested, message us for our personals.
We also intend to update this one a little more frequently, at least for now.
Tatum! You rock.
Congratulations! I hope you feel wonderful. Not at all like this:
Maybe happy and ridiculous like one of these fools:
But you just do what you want. Like any of them:
(Or the more realistic version of that:)
Perhaps you’re still a little sleepy:
But I hope you’re feeling this badass:
Or perhaps, like you just did one of these things, you know, metaphorically, to your thesis:
(That’s right. You just spit in the face of your thesis. (Is this a thing?))
So maybe this instead?
And maybe we can do a little of this to celebrate:
But really, you should feel like this: (Because I’m going to boss you.)
Anyway, I love you!
Watch this in celebration of Kangin’s return. Do it.
It’s like they were injected with something and shoved on stage. We suggest paying particular attention to Leeteuk, Sungmin, and Ryeowook. HA.
My snarky sibling watched this video over my shoulder. ”Go back to about @0:25… Ha. Yes, ‘Based on True Story’ indeed.”
I hadn’t noticed the missing ‘a’. I am now concerned what else I may have missed in my KPopping.
As for Tritops, I have no opinion on them yet, except that I wish their name didn’t sound so much like ‘Triceratops’, which is still a real dinosaur.
Couple of things about this video:
- Don’t try with the chair dance with a rolly-chair.
- Don’t pick a fight with someone who’s wearing spiky gloves
- Blondie is a very beautiful…man?
- The dance felt like six different ones mashed together—some very traditionally feminine and some more masculine. Good job mixing it up and defying the gender binary kids!
- Wiping your mouth with spiky gloves seems like a bad plan
- Oh kids, your rap in English at the end was said well, but had silly content. I approve.
- Oh YouTube. Here’s a tidbit from the actual description: “‘FACE,’ by Swedish songwriter Daniel Barkman, stands out from the usual K-pop songs by taking on dubstep, an on-trend genre these days. It features a highly addictive chorus that makes it strikingly compelling. The driving rhythms and slick techno feel of the synth and bass vividly convey NU’EST’s distinctive sophistication and intensity.” Yes dubstep, you are an on-trend genre these days.
- If you don’t mind listening to the song a second time, I suggest checking out the official English subtitled version, it’s pretty much hilarious.
- The song’s fun. Well done, Nu’est. I’m going to actually care about you, even with that silly name.
