2NE1 – I Love You: Kpop Music Mondays

July 17, 2012

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!!!!

  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.

  4. 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.

  13. 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…

  32. 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.

    5 years ago
  33. 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!

  42. IDK if you guys knew that scene with CL and her jerky is very similar to a scene from Beyonce’s music video for Dance for me…http://youtu.be/PGc9n6BiWXA I hope you guys share your option on that.

  43. Seeing Simon in a leotard. Not a sight I need to see again.
    Never the less, when it went from Martina to Simon dancing. I wasn’t expecting that.

  44. Probably the reason they were in the light house and the train was because they were set for a date but were left hanging… and that’s were the phone calls come in. Since their date didn’t come they tried to contact them and since that didn’t work either they were sad and gloomy. (Sorry for my English)

  45. The lighthouse has always been a symbol for solitude. Like someone said in an earlier post, the lighthouse is usually operated by a single person. Also, notice that CL is on the deck of the lighthouse–the lamp is lit, and she’s seeking out her lover. Maybe not like “OMG WHERE IS HE?” but like she wants to know what his emotions are. Where is he in the relationship? As for the train, it could symbolize the journey of a relationship and by being on it alone, it’s like you’re going through it alone (in a one-sided relationship). Still fits with the song! :D

  46. Don’t think your use of the “Tarantallegra” spell went unnoticed, Simon! I cracked up when you said it. Another great video you guys. Jerky every day! I say yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah! =) As for my vote, I’m gonna go with Shinee. I’ve always loved Doritos and that line is really awesome. Plus, Bull Jerky’s just not my type of Jerky. Thanks again Simon and Martina! I really hope Psy wins for next week’s KMM. That song is just way too catchy and the dance is too. As soon as I heard it I couldn’t get it out of my head. The one thing that bothered me was probably Hyuna’s lack of visible eyebrows. But anyways, I hope you have a wonderful day!

  47. This is 2NE1’s first time employing “trot” singing technique in their song. You should mention it because many Koreans think this may be a game changer marrying trot music and electronic music. It is said that 2NE1 members were initially very reluctant to sing in trot style which is considered to belong to older generation. But Minzy who were raised by her grandmother who constantly sang trot songs liked it and persuaded other members. I just read this in a Korean newspaper, not sure if it is true.

  50. Bwahaha this morning (before I saw your video), I was attempting to sing CL’s lines in her sexy-catsuit part, and it came out as “bowl of jerky” so now that’s what I always say. You guys have Bull-O jerky, but that’s cool too.

    5 years ago
  51. From the making the girls are filming three video in 3 languages. On top of the missed dead line promised. A couple of times. Guess it’s too rushed and they couldn’t deliver lol. I vote for 2ne1 because I still get goosebumps when I see a half naked shinee album

  53. A vote for Bull Jerky.

    Why? Because Bull Jerky has 82% fewer carbs and 46.666666666666666666666666666667% fewer calories then Soy un Doritos.

  58. Well lighthouse owners are meant to be the “loneliest people in the world” (I’m basing this off an episode of the Simpsons, so who knows how reliable that is), so being by a lighthouse kind of matches the loneliness theme… Kind of. As for being in a train…. Who knows?
    I liked your very very very unsubtle Psy promotion. Hopefully you’ll be doing Psy next week! Although I think Batoost comes out soon.

  65. Paparazzi’s lip sync was worse though… That one even made me sad…

    5 years ago
  66. My thing about the bad dubbing/lip syncing…….Is that maybe they weren’t supposed to be full out singing the song in that setting…Like it’s supposed to be like they’re singing to themselves…Not sure if that really makes any sense, but it’s an idea. Either way I blame YG/people editing or filming and whatnot, and not 2ne1. Not because I’m biased..(okay maybe a little) but because you would think the people filming would notice…Like they would tell them to do it better…………………….But when it comes down to it, at least they sing well live. Maybe that’s why they can’t lip sync. xD

  69. I have to say that I was disappointed with this song. I felt like it built up to a point and was just about to go somewhere, and suddenly fell off. Really like it otherwise, and I’m not really a fan of their specific style and taste.

  89. 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.

  102. 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.
