2NE1 – I Love You: Kpop Music Mondays

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!

  4. Love that Spudgy is your patronus. Disagree on the English score because docking points for cheesiness of lyrics would mean that most English language pop songs would get a score of 4. It’s a pop song, pablum goes with the territory.

  8. As a vegetarian, and a huuuuuge shawol, I’m gonna have to go with Taemin’s Doritos. Jerky doesn’t do much for me, and Taemin definitely does. Mmmmm….

  17. Wow, it really must be your video-editing experience. I totally missed the sync issue, though now I can see what you mean. I just didn’t notice it.

    I didn’t notice the “jerky” part either and I must’ve watched the video 5 times or more.

    Love the Tarantallegra reference by the way. Brilliant on so many levels.

    Also, FWIW, I thought CL looked great in that black turtleneck. I normally don’t go for turtlenecks, but I thought it really matched the scene. But that’s just me.

    Vote: a really tough one. I have to abstain. Both are great choices.

    P.S. I am surprised you didn’t mention anything about Dara’s new look. Personally I love it, but it was one of the things that stood out the most too in my opinion.

    • Congratulations! Uhm, I’m not sure where they want you to contact them, but there’s a contact page on the header of the site, to the left of the pink T-Shirt button that you could start at. Hope that helps!

  22. Thank goodness I wasn’t the only one driven utterly insane by the dubbing!! I actually kept thinking it was my computer lagging at first, but after reloading the video about 7 times, i finally gave in to the fact that it was the video.

    I adore your 2NE1 inspired look for the video, Martina~♥

    I’m actually going to vote for the showdown this time. I just couldn’t choose last week. D:
