Kpop Music Mondays: 2NE1 “Come Back Home”

March 11, 2014

Now that I look at the final edit of the Music Monday, I’m not sure if I made my point clearly enough with 2NE1’s video. Doing videos on the internet means you have to compete with limited attention spans, so you gotta get to your point as soon as you can before people drift off. People have longer attention spans when they’re reading blog posts, though, so I can get a bit more in depth here, I think:

Here’s what I was trying to get at: 2NE1’s video poses a bit of a conundrum for me, and I’m not sure if it’s the core message that poses the conflict or if it’s just that they didn’t get enough time in their video to flesh out the argument. From what I saw, the video in a nutshell suggests “virtual world = bad, real world = good.” Connect more with the real world around you than the virtual world on your phone. My point, though, is this: 2NE1 exists in the virtual world. You view them on your phones and on your laptops and iPads. You don’t know them in real life. You’re lucky if you can see them in concert. There’s nothing real to you about 2NE1, by their definition of real vs virtual, that is.

2NE1’s virtual world is so much more colorful and vivid than Dara’s real monotonous world – both in color and pattern, so Dara’s boyfriend plugs into Virtual Paradise. But…but…real life is better, right? Is that what 2NE1’s getting at? If that’s the case, then isn’t the way the Virtual Paradise is described a lot like how Kpop is described? It’s so much more vivid and colorful. People look different. They speak a different language. They live in a different world. Their music sounds different. And gotdamn they’re so much prettier than we are. Kpop is the virtual paradise. Your life around you is the real world.

Kpop isn’t only a genre of music. I’d argue that it isn’t a genre to begin with, the way Rock and Folk and Electronica are genres, because Kpop has no consistent sound to it. Kpop is more of an aesthetic than a genre. Kpop is more often music for eyes than it is for ears. And the music for eyes that Kpop makes is, for many people outside of Korea, a version of Virtual Paradise.

So, I’m not really sure how 2NE1 can reconcile their video’s message with their careers. Are 2NE1 saying “don’t drink that poison! I just saved you! Here: drink OUR poison instead!” I don’t want to think that 2NE1’s saying that. It’s like us here at Eatyourkimchi saying “get off the internet! YouTube sucks!” when our careers are on the internet.

My basic argument is that I don’t agree with what 2NE1 are posing as opposites. The dichotomy between real world and virtual paradise doesn’t exist. Nothing is virtual. Everything around us is a part of our real lives, and seeking distractions is a part of human existence. If we don’t do it online, we do it in books. If we don’t do it in books we do it in play. If we don’t do it in play we do it in our minds as we walk and think. We do it when we listen to other people’s stories when they talk to us. It’s exceptionally challenging to be in the moment, when so much of what we do depends on things not in our immediate vicinity.

We’re built to think about things outside of us. We’re all escapists in one form or another. Sure, our current world makes it easier for us to do so, by giving us interesting pictures and videos to look at much more easily than it would be for us to conjure them up in the aether of our thoughts. To argue against distraction isn’t going to get us anywhere. I welcome distraction, and so I’m not really agreeing with 2NE1 here.

I will find a middle ground with them, though. Hey: maybe they’re not arguing against all distraction and “virtual paradises” altogether. They might not be arguing against the dichotomy; maybe they’re just arguing for moderation, which is something I can agree with. Don’t check your phone constantly when we’re talking face to face, please. Most people can’t carry on two conversations at once, and talking on your phone makes you suck at talking in person. Unless you’re the rare exception that can keep up with both conversations, in which I don’t mind, but I haven’t yet met someone who can do justice to both at once. Technology’s doing so much to help us connect with others away from us that we’re forgetting how to connect to people in front of us.

Aw hell. That’s too much to talk about in one blog post, but at least I could talk about it more here than I could in the video! I’ll leave it at this: I know we sometimes talk about deep stuff on Kpop Music Monday, like we did in the Cleansing Cream review, the Grasshopper Song review, and now, in a small way, this review. Can we do this for every Kpop Music Monday? No. A lot of kpop videos are very superficial and empty. Some videos use symbolism, but not in any ways that convey messages that interest us. I won’t care about love songs from people that have been singing about love for less time than I’ve been married, because I don’t think that their messages can contribute anything of value to me. Maybe they can be of interest to others. Sorry that we can’t help in that way. The same way some people can read illuminati symbolism into videos, we’re also not interested in those kinds of analyses, because they bore us.

This video, though, had a message that we found stimulating, so we dealt with it more than we did with other, personally less interesting videos. I hope you found this somewhat interesting as well, I hope! Let us know your thoughts and what you take away from it. Are 2NE1 raging against their own careers? Or is there another way to view their hostility towards Virtual Paradise?

Another opinion we need of you, to fan the flames of Fanwar (the Struggle is real!) let us know what comeback you liked more. We can’t agree amongst ourselves. Whose side do you agree with?

On a less serious note: here’s more footage of Spudgy and Meemers being freaking cute as hell!

Aaaand, just in case some people want the 2NEmum video on its own, we made a separate video for it as well. Check it out here if you’re interested :D

And, lastly, click on this pretty button here. It’ll give you a super sexy virtual lover, IN REAL LIFE! Just one click away!

Kpop Music Mondays: 2NE1 “Come Back Home”

  1. I thought that t meaning for 2ne1 video was that you should not only spend your life living and wanting a life that you only have in your mind, but make that life real, and don’t just ignore the people you love. That’s s why they used the virtual paradise, that showed the world the guy wanted, but never made it real.

  2. 2NE1 for sure. I don’t hate on SNSD but I just like 2NE1’s music and style more. They bring the hype , they bring the energy, the attitude and the fierceness.

  3. i gotta be one of the very rare that was so sO underwhelmed by this ong and comeback. man i was expecting so much for their comeback and… meh… it just… slipped on me. i didn’t feel anything. it’s not like it’s a bad song but… this isn’t my cup of tea and thing. this isn’t what i wanted from them. i actually really dislike that weird chorus, it ruins the song for me. i, way, much more love it as the unplugged version.
    i feel so sad tbh. i wanted to be thrilled and excited and overly happy with their new cd but… it just didn’t do it for me. sure the mv is nice, lot of money spend on it, and pretty wisely and in a clever way, i guess. (not like Infinite with their very meh Destiny mv. and i say this as a true fan). but as time passes, i realize how unimportant a mv is. for me. a mv doesn’t do the song. it can fool us. in the good or bad way. like make us feel/think a song is better or less good than what it really is. but well, in the end i don’t watch a song, so.
    anyway, to conclude it as much as i am not a snsd fan (at all, actually) i surprisingly really enjoyed and still enjoying their Mr.Mr song, and album. so, i’m sorry 2NE1, i love you girls but my vote goes for snsd this time.

    • I’m one of the few who feels the same way. It’s not that the album was bad or anything, it just wasn’t to my personal tastes. I liked the Unplugged version of Come Back Home, Scream, and Gotta Be You, but even those don’t come close to their older songs for me. When their last full album came out a few years ago, I literally loved every single song but one. I was hoping to have similar feels here, so understandably I was disappointed. lol. Anyway, I think this MV made Come Back Home a way cooler song, and I love deep MVs like this. As for SNSD, Mr.Mr is a great song, but the video did it no justice except with the brief dance cuts in the suits and fedoras.

  4. Like Martina mentioned, I couldn’t focus on the MV at all the first time I watched it because of that awful lip syncing and sound matching or whatever you call it orz I got so irritated like how can they miss something like that? I didn’t fancy the incorporation of the unplugged version in the original version either.

    Watching it again, my interpretation is slightly different? I think the main point is that people shouldn’t turn to virtual worlds when they’re having problems in the real world. I’ve met many people, on-line, who told me that Kpop, gaming, virtual worlds, etc are their “getaway” from real life problems. Their “escape” to reality, if you must. They said it’s better than taking drugs or something lol and I guess sleep isn’t an option for them either. The guy, in the MV, used to have a good relationship with Dara. Something strained that and instead of fixing the problem with her, he runs away to the virtual world. Dara’s left there waiting and looking annoyed~

    Anyways.. I actually prefer “Crush” more than “Come Back Home” just because the swaggy sass in the song is so catchy. If it was Crush vs Mr. Mr. I would’ve chosen 2NE1, hands down. Other than that, I don’t know because I like GG’s comeback as well D: D:

  5. I liked how 2NE1 had a different direction then came back with a fierce concept for their full album. Sure they do badass right but you can’t have badass all the damn time
    I personally really like the song and mv, and loved CL’s slower rap part after the first chorus. Mr.Mr is good and the GG ladies look gorgeous as hell but I’m going with 2NE1. Much more of a comeback with a bang and it feels like they own their song more, not own as in OOOH YOU JUST GOT OWNED but as in they have more ownership over it, it’s 2NE1’s. With Mr.Mr, it just sounded like the typical SM song that a foreign composer made, then they injected korean words to make it korean (and I still agree with SooZee on the lyrics).
    I think that they put in this virtual paradise thing to go along more with the lyrics of “come back home,” asking the guy to come back home from the virtual paradise, rather than sending a societal message to the public to stop using technology so much, at all. The virtual paradise was just part of the plot bc the guy wasn’t coming back home from it. You’re thinking too deep into this Simon :P
    Spudgy was too cute waiting for you ^_____________^ Meems is so big now :O

  6. Honestly, I didn’t quite like 2NE1’s comeback song that much. I enjoyed the MV but the song felt really off to me because it kept switching back and forth from a light ballad-like tune to dropping the bass with dubstep. I found SNSD’s comeback song a lot better since it was catchy and it didn’t continuously change its tone although I didn’t exactly find the MV to my liking.

  9. Wow, so I think both comebacks are great, but unique in their own way. Personally I enjoyed SNSD more because I can listen to the song on repeat AND watch the video a 1000 times, whereas for 2ne1 I can listen to the song forever, but the video isn’t really killing it for me. As for concept, I love SNSD’s stage presence and delivery, even though I only saw one 2ne1 comeback stage compared to 4 of GG’s, SNSD seemed to command the stage more for me and 2ne1 wasn’t as memorable.

    2 years ago
  10. Ok now shirt aside, I really like 2NE1’s comeback more, it’s not their best, I even like “Crush” more than “Come Back Home”, but “Mr.Mr.” it’s so generic and boring, and the MV is not interesting at all. It’s sad because SNSD have some talented girls there, but SM just don’t care since people buy whatever they release. Fans sometimes try to protect their idols by accepting whatever their company gives them to sing, and that’s not the way to help them to evolve and express.

    2 years ago
    • I would like to also add that I like 2ne1’s comeback coz it got people talking about the “music” and not really how pretty the girls are like what other groups are banking on.

    • Actually, the “single” from misconceptions of us, Selene 6.23 is Jonghyun’s, though it wasn’t a promoted single, and he did the lyrics for Symptoms (which I wish had been the title track from Everybody) and Obsession (way back in the day), and IU just did one of his songs. ‘떠나지 못해 (Sleepless Night)’, which is one of my favorite songs from Misconceptions of Me, was actually written by Max of TVXQ. Which is to say, I think SM is starting to figure out to let their idols be artists, though probably slower for the girls (though Goodbye Summer on f(x)’s Pink Tape was written by Amber. Not promoted, though.)

      2 years ago
    • I’m a Cassiopeia, TVXQ is there for ten years now, and only now Yunho actually have a composed song on an album. When they were 5 all of them could write, especially Jaejoong and Yoochun, and SM used a few songs, but they could have used more. If you look at how many self composed songs JYJ released now, and how many songs composed by them SM used back them, it’s a shame. Such a powerful company, but no creative freedom. SM is always the best in gather and training the best ones out there, but not really good at managing them.

  11. I vote for Orange Caramel. 2NE1 and SNSD both just felt meh after a few listens (But Generation’s suit outfits are still amazing #suckerforfedoras )

    2 years ago
    • Yeah I have to agree about the suits, I love Fedoras too, from everything going on in this world I don’t know why fedoras suffers so much hate U_U!!! Still didn’t listen to Orange Caramel’s new song, but from the teasers I hope it’s going to be hilarious!!

      • They haven’t even released the song but I have a great feeling about this release. And yes the Fedora/Trilby hate is sad. Especially when the Tumblr community thinks okay to generalize the bad side of Bronies and older MRAs then shame anyone who wants wear fashionably headgear. >_<

  14. Loved the Seo Taiji & The Boys nostalgia to this song, and actually though that the virtual reality message was quite awesome. Why? Because in talking about a relationship, someone who checks out to be in a virtual reality is a heartache. Be that checking out into being a workaholic, an obsessive gamer, or into their band making it big. So it’s a metaphor? Sometimes metaphors just work for me, I dunno… ;)

    2 years ago
  15. I got a slightly different message when I watched “Come Back Home”, actually. I didn’t see this as much as a critique on society’s dependence on technological distractions, but instead as calling out a common problem in many romantic relationships. So often people are looking for an unattainable ideal and, as a result, neglect or abandon the relationship they already have because of its flaws. In this video, it takes the form of a technological wonderland, but I think it can have other real-world manifestations in addition to spending too much time on virtual media. Some of these distractions in search of an unattainable ideal can be more serious such as unfaithfulness, alcoholism, pornography, or drug addiction. I think this message really fits with the title and chorus of the song, “Come Back Home”– a desperate and really heartfelt plea for a partner to come back to a relationship and to focus on what really matters and on improving and fixing a relationship instead of turning away to other methods of escape. So yeah, that’s my take on it. :)

    • Wow.. it’s true…

      2 years ago
    • i think i can think of a meaning of this mv.

      in a land full of sadness and sorrow,technology they call ”virtual paradise” was used to retain some type of happiness.

      daras boyfriend seemed to be depressed/sickness there for doing the virtual paradise,she cries because she’s lonely and that now she’s in the corner while he is in a little fake happy place,and thats the only joy he has,not her.

      therefore 2ne1 try to makeup a cure to get rid of it.(cl hitting the power box to turn off ad)

      i guess the potion stuff didn’t work,therefor just going in and breaking the whole place down,and having dara rip off the tecno things @ his head to get the guy to come back to real life.

      therefore the ”COME BACK HOME” means they want you to come back to the real world,and never live in a place so happy that its dark.

      ”WHY WHY,TOO FAR AWAY”was to show that he’s so distant even though he is right there.

      the breakdown/tecno is used to show what you see in this world,full of fake everything even the people. so they are the saviors.the ending was the virtual place disappearing. you can see 2ne1 in the virtual gear in order to wreck the place.

      wow a lot of typing……tell me what you thought it meant(before you searched it)

      unless you can tell me what you thought it was same as mine.

    • Ahhhh ok I’m gonna watch it again with your explanation in mind!:P

      2 years ago
  16. First off, I have to agree with Simon on that 2NE1 did comment on a lot of people in modern society do spend more time on their phone and technology than with other people. However, I will disagree with the fact that they’re trying to get more people to spend time in “real life”, but rather that they’re just making commentary on the fact and trying to open more people’s eyes to the fact. I feel like they just want a balance between both virtual and real worlds.

    Second, aaahhhhh why is this the fan war edition?? (Although it couldn’t be helped, literally I saw way too much SNSD vs 2NE1, like, everywhere) I loved SNSD’s dances in their M/V, but some of the plot stuff, like mentioned last time, was edited out, which made me sad, but the song was great. I really loved 2NE1’s M/V and song, though (and I disagree with the inclusion of CL’s acoustic rap bit, it was nice to hear her rapping to such a mellow tone), so I’m gonna have to go with 2NE1. I will agree with Martina on the fact that I really miss 2NE1’s more powerful concepts (I feel like once a K-pop group has gotten a good following with their initial concept, they start to just follow a more cookie-cutter mold, or at least lean towards it more, like BAP (but I’m still a Baby ;AA;)) and while this was more like their older style, I want to see them going back to it more!

    Third, loved your lip-syncing, Martina :D

  19. The video really completed the 2ne1 experience for me. When I first listened to the album CBH felt a little flat to me, kinda missing a story/message beside the whole sad love story thingy, I mean 2ne1 can firemurder and the like!

    The mv had me confused as well I mean yes kpop is a virtual wonderland to me so I deducted 2ne1 were telling me to stop youtube and the like^^
    But understanding they tried to transport that people nowadays prefer to connect via whats app, or such, really gave me some thing to appreciate.
    I am the kind of person to go out and meet my friends acctually meeting them and savoring that expearience instead of beeing glued to a screen the whole night. Life is about Quality time, and people granting you this should appreciated and recieve the same! Sony Ericson non-Smartphone for the win!

  20. Slightly torn because as much as I like Mr.Mr. video was lacking while I had the opposite feeling with Come Back Home. So I’m sticking with which song I’ve had on repeat more and that’s Mr. Mr. I wish they had gone with Crush even though I totally understand why they went with this song. They could dig deeper with this song than with the rest.
    Also Simon I have a feeling Chanyeol totally agrees with you on that part about having Dara as a girlfriend. And poor Spudgy and Meemers, they were so distraught over being left alone they had to write a song.

    2 years ago
  21. I almost started crying when Spudgy was singing… and then Meemer’s part came on and I started laughing! Definitely one of your best songs!!!

    2 years ago
  22. pfff, this made me laugh louder than i should have at 8:43 pm (the yum and i farted parts kicking me repeatedly.). And yeah that SL soloy acutsic part was part of the unplugged version, which didn’t bother me as much as it seemed to anyone else.

    i have to go with 2ne1, and while i always try to listen to all comebacks, even of groups I dislike, I only enjoyed the first few seconds of Mr.Mr., after that, the voices and tones of their singing I did not like. But that’s just me. Also, I really seem to see GG more focused on the look at me form, and I was really happy to see a more (but not long enough) Plot driven mv.

    Also, I think it is about moderation, Many people spend hours upon hours on the virtual world, especially trying to get away from their problems, but you simply can not do that. You have to face your problems eventually.

  23. 2NE1 has a better MV. But I just love SNSD song, it’s easy listening and get more and more addicting.
    SNSD choreo is totally awesome. The song is really made for performing purpose. SNSD +1 (Simon, I’m with you *wink* *wink*)

  24. I preferred 2ne1’s ‘Come Back Home,’ but not by much. I seriously think they would have done better coming back with ‘Gotta Be You’ or ‘Crush.’ BTW, where is the 2NEMum option? That’s who had the better comeback lol

    2 years ago
  25. I am a sone, and I loved SNSD’s song MrMr, but unfortunately the video was ……… I loved both 2ne1’s come back home song AND video, so I’m gonna vote for 2ne1 for the better comeback. :P

  27. The kazoo part is actually the part of the song that kind of ruins the song for me. Overall I really like the song, but I really dislike that interjection in the song. It feels like I’m listening to three different songs.

    I like your interpretation of escaping the cyber world would mean actually escaping all our technological devices, thus the world of kpop. Which is interesting since I know for Big Bang world tour at least Samsung was the sponsor. Hmmm.

    Love, love, the Spudgy/Meems song!

    2 years ago
    • Interestingly enough, I think the kazoo part has people on both sides of the spectrum; some people like it and some people hate it. I personally love it and agree with Simon and Martina. Without it, I probably would have questioned whether I was listening to 2NE1 or not.

      2 years ago
    • is that part of the album song too? I liked it except for that. It’s like they took a really pretty song and then just….blech. Like when there your CD gets a scratch and skip, skip, skip play same part 3 times then move on to the rest of the song.. yeah like that. (whew, I saved myself there! I almost horribly dated myself by talking about scratched records!).

      2 years ago
      • Yes it is. The acoustic version doesn’t have that part obviously and so it flows much better, but for the concept the video is going with that trap drop beat was linked.

        I mean Dubstep sounds like it was an accident at first too. I didn’t believe that it was a real musical style at first when my friends got really into it.

        2 years ago
      • >_< Yup, it's sadly apart of the song on the album also.
        Lol, I was think of using a scratched record metaphor as well, but decided against it.

  28. Interesting blog post. I didn’t think of it that way exactly. I thought originally that the boyfriend was bored with his life and sought the virtual world to make it more interesting? Colorful? Not quite sure how to word it really. And that the members of 2NE1 were trying to help Dara out by destroying the virtual world and in effect, saving her real world (saving her relationship with homeboy by taking away the thing that’s distracting him from their relationship). Maybe I didn’t look too deeply into the video. *Kanye shrug*
    Anyway, love you guise! ^_^v

  29. I believe the acoustic bit is from the unplugged version of the song..
    Which I actually preference to the studio version (personal preference).

    I totally loved this MV.. but I’m still getting used some of to the songs & the “kazoo” part >.<"
    (SNSD's album was more of what I'm used to, though I don't listen to girl groups much anyway)
    If I had to pick a better MV, I'd pick 2NE1, but if I had to pick a song more my style, I'd pick SNSD

  31. OMG you guys almost made me cry with the Spudgy and Memeers “Come Back Home”.
    Between SNSD and 2ne1, I gotta say 2ne1, just because the album has more songs that I like than SNSD one. Come back Home is not my favourite (that’d be Gotta Be You) and I agree with Martina it still isn’t as fierce as we’re used to. But I made my peace that we’re never gonna have another music as good as I Am The Best.

    2 years ago
  32. I’m so torn! Can’t we just like both comebacks equally and call it a day? But I guess my deciding factor would be how I was immediately drawn to Mr. Mr. whereas I wasn’t crazy about Come Back Home until I saw the video and that gave it a deeper understanding.

    2 years ago
  33. i thought it had something to do with drug addiction and recovery because the guy was crushing pills and Dara was sad cause she was dealing with loosing her boyfriend to his addiction, but then the virtual world was more of visual representation of the struggles an it looked cooler than just a video of a guy on drugs and his girl being sad and all.

    • It funny though, although he thought it was boring, I think he understood the message better. They live in a world where there is no lie to the reality, because the virtual world has sucked everything out of it

  35. Thanks for your interpretation guise! When I watched the video I just saw all of the frustration that comes with having a gamer boyfriend who TOTALLY IGNORES DARA for hours on end so she has to go into the game with her girls and mess it up! Whew, that hit hooooome.
    PS Martina I loved the “YOU STAY AWAY FROM DARA” voice lol

      • I personally think MTBD and Crush are better songs. At least they have been really stuck in my head lately!

      • My favorite songs from their album are crush, MTBD, if i were you, and good girl, and Gotta be you has a fun clubby chorus. Since, Martina said that she listened to the whole album, what is your favorite song.

      • Yeah, I can believe that. After watching this video, I really wanted to go and play “I Don’t Care.” That song was really great.

  40. Although I’m a Blackjack… I like SNSD’s comeback better. It was totally raising the bar for SNSD, while 2NE1’s comeback was kinda meh. Like… I liked it, but it’s not as cool as their older music. I’m sorry, Blackjacks! DON’T KILL MEEEEEEEE. TT______TT
