This almost got reviewed last week, because so many people voted for it almost instantly, but it just narrowly didn’t make it to first place. This week, though, it was head and shoulders above everyone else’s video. Assah! We get to review 2NE1’s “I Love You”. Check it out here if you haven’t already:


So, we talked about a bunch of stuff in the video, but there were a few things we cut out of our script for fear of making the video too long. Let’s talk about them here:

The outfits in this video. Remember when I ripped into f(x)’s wardrobe stylist for their horrible mismatched tacky designer clothing? This 2NE1 video is an example of how to do funky clothing correctly. They’re making use of interesting clothing, that – yes – you may not necessarily wear yourself (I’m looking at you CL with your leather hight waist underpants and fishnet stocking in the snow and on a train) but STILL they look really fabulous, and their clothing and accessories match! It’s like funky meets couture clothing, without looking cluttered. I know some people won’t like their outfits, and hey, we all have different opinions, but if I had to chose someone to dress me, i’d pick 2NE1’s stylist any day.

Also, Park Bom loves her knee. She hugs it a lot.

Another thing: is it just us or do 2NE1 have really simple song titles? I Love You, Hate You, It Hurts, Go Away. We could be reaching here, but there seems to be a pattern of simplicity here, like they’re interested in just hitting on those basic emotionally charged themes. We didn’t flesh this idea out much, but we had made a song for the jerky part just in case we did (because we like making cheesy covers of Kpop songs). Check it out here!

Lastly, if you’re digging the song as much as we are, pick it up over on iTunes. Oh! And if you’re here to see who won the ZE:A Limited Edition CDs from when we did our Interview with ZE:A, we announce them in the bloopers below! They’re right at the end of the bloopers, and we took screenshots of the winning answers for once, so…yeah! Check out if you won, or just watch it to see Simon be nastier than usual, YOU NASTY PEOPLE YOU!


  1. 2NE1 IS COMING BACK!!!!
    *fangirl explosion

  2. I was disturbed with the dubbing too, glad you mentioned it. And the tarantallegra part was just awesome. My sis laughed really hard when I showed the part where Simon was in the shower, but I think she was just enjoying seeing someone almost drowning in a shower(she is a creep >.>).

    P.S.I think the entertainer companies are staring to make attempts to win you guys over. First, it was the that big “Simon” sign by SMEnt (I think it was SM, sorry if I’m wrong).
    And now YG is trying to get Martina by luring her with ‘Bull-O-Jerky’.
    Personally I think YG is winning in this one. Sorry Simon, but free food every day beats out a giant sign, even if it has your name on it.

  3. LOL, you know when Simon and Martina are secretly supporting PSY to win when you see the obvious vote of support in the background: “Vote for PSY.”

    I agree. PSY’s mv is such a delight to watch – would really love to hear your thoughts on it.

  4. SO voting for PSY! xDDD
    thanks guys!


  6. Cute Taeminnie :”Soy un dorito!!!!!!!” =D 

  7. Soy un Dorito!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. SOY UN DORITO !!!!! :D arriba las taemints !! ;;^^;;

  9. shinee!!!
    i can’t believe shinee didn’t win!

  10. Soy un Dorito!!! SHINee!! …..oh by the way I tought I was the only one who noticed the sync issue but according to Blackjacks it’s probably because 2NE1 will release this song in japanese and like 4 days ago YG said that they will release “I Love You” english version….considering that filming mv’s it’s expensive probably the lip sync was weird…

  11. Simon, what took you so long to turn off the water?!

    I vote for the Dorito himself~ pfft. (TAEMIN AWW!!)

  13. Taemin’s doritos ALL THE WAY! SOY UN DORITO! <3

  14. Taaaaeeeemmmmiiiinnnn Soyong doricheo!!!!

  15. soy un dorito all the way!!!

  16. i love doritos a little bit more than jerky. so, SOY UN DORITO

  17. I vote jerky! Since I don’t like doritos or jerky so imma just vote for the sexier one, lol :P

    2NE1 STYLIST IS VERY SMART PEOPLE..#somtimes..hhahaha.
    i’m in love with this song since i listen their teaser. And when the MV coming out…i just jhgbdtaffhcjcn #can’t dscribe into a words…
    this song is totally cool . ^0^

  19. I didn’t get the whole jerky thing, so I rewatched the video, and heck, you’re right – she says ‘And we have Bull-O-Jerky everyday’?!
    O.O *BLOW YOUR MIND* bewp bewp bewp bewp

  20. Martina, those eyelashes are awesome! ^^

  21. doritos are good…sorry CL but i dont eat jerky

  22. watched MM w/ my mom for the first time and we’re laughing together *precious moments. ok cut the cheesyness* i guess you have a new fan *high five*
    CL’s dance… butchered! haha
    i vote for BULL-O JERKY — coz i sing it like that :]

  23. oh i’d eat Taemin’s doritos ANY day ;D

  24. I noticed the mouths not synchronizing too! Also in PSY’s MV there’s a part (at 1:11) where he doesn’t sing op op op op in the chorus but his mouth moves to it. I think someone in YG should be fired or hire more people to check for that sort of thing.

  25. Bad dubbing explained:
    2NE1 was filming videos for the Korea, Japanese and English versions of this song at the same time. They used the right scenes but the wrong shots so they put the Korean audio over the Japanese or English lipsyncing.
    the UGLY video was also filmed for both the Korean and Japanese versions at the same time.
    They need to pay more attention!

  26. This is so wrong, I start singing Jang Woo Young’s Sexy Lady and picture PSY instead.

    This MM was perfectly hilarious. Junsu flying out the wand slayed me.

  27. soy un dorito….Yeah. I hate jerky and her sexy dance wouldn’t it make me want it anymore. lol. I loved your review. Never noticed the dubbing mistakes. .watched it again.. wow. i will notice all the mistakes in all future kpop videos.

  28. I vote for “soy un dorito!!!!!” actually , that is my best part of the song jeje
