The first time I heard this song I was like “yeah man, this is so good!” and now, I’m still looking at it and thinking that it’s a good song, but something about the video made me feel uncomfortable. The song’s really haunting, and the video is taking that to an almost cheesy level? It’s all artsy with a really poorly lit studio, closeups of people’s hands and faces, lots of shadows, all black and white, and – I don’t know – it just feels like it’s trying to be a bit too artsy. I find that it might be a bit off-putting for some people. Being artsy is great and all, but this really feels like its taking itself a bit too seriously. No? I dunno. If that’s your thing, you’ll like the video. If not, the song’s still great on it’s own :D
There’s not a lot of Korean music that hits heavy rotation in our home. We’ll play a song or two of an artist we like, but rarely do we find albums that we play from start to finish, and loop it a few times. Beenzino, Zion T, WHOwho are all on that list, and now Lim Kim is on that list. This song’s great fun. “Rain” was lovely as well. The whole album isn’t the greatest thing ever, but it’s good music to play around the home when cooking dinner, I’d say. Though she does have a bit of a Taylor Swift vibe to her, not in her looks or the sound of her music…just…something. Some jujus she’s got going on…
Ok, I’m a bit torn about Outsider. I think it’s cool that he can rap so quickly, but I’m not sure if I like it in music. I saw a video of a guy who can snap extremely quickly, and he can make songs out of snapping so well. Does that mean I’d want to hear that in a song? Not really. Rapping this fast is more intriguing than it is good music, IMO. DON’T KILL ME, EPIC NASTIES! I just prefer a more relaxed delivery. But the song’s still cool! Just not the best thing ever :D
More importantly, thanks for the request, for uploading it to YouTube and for linking to it in the comments. YouTube doesn’t allow video responses anymore, but this site still does! Let us know if you’ve got any requests. Side note: you can also check the KpopCharts by “Newest” added videos. There’s a lot of K-Indie on there. It doesn’t rank highly, but it’s there if you’re looking for it in and easy-to-scroll through layout :D
