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. This was full of absolutely HILARIOUS Simon awesomeness!

  3. The mouth and the words probably doesnt match cuz i think they sang in japanese version which happened in monster too! i saw the japanese version of monster. PERFECT. the mouth and the words were so synchronized together! I was ridiculed by it though since it means YG puts more effort into japanese production1

  4. Lol You guys are hilarious!!!, Soyongdorichyeo!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    And I would like to vote for Taemin! Dang man! First Infinite gets the total cold shoulder because of effing Big Bang (I am STILL not over that) and now Super Junior wins over Shinee? I feel like this blog has flipped upside down or something. Me no like.

  22. Definitely Taemin’s Doritos. DEFINITELY.

  23. Obviously Taemin’s doritos.

  24. Cristina Guran

    Martina has great hair and Simon looks like Snape in a wardrobe. b(^.~)d

  25. jazzyfish

    Taeminnnnnn (though I’d most likely steal the bag and inhale before he got there. :D)

  26. Fingers crossed that you’ll do get to review PSY next week. Oppa Gangnam Style. /dances/ The entire album is awesome, I must add.

  27. When Taemin is involved, it means I vote for Doritos.

  28. cloiebuggeater

    oh and by the way this was hands down THE BEST KPOP MUSIC MONDAY EVER!!! i loved and appreciated how much you put into planning the funny sequences in the shower and snape thing and the jerky dance and the toilet bit and simon dancing which i will have nightmares about tonight. i really really really truly enjoyed this weeks music monday video. thank you guys so much for making me laugh so hard. oh Martina, your body looked smokin’ hot in the black outfit you were wearing for the jerky bit. seriously. flaunt it!!!!! <3

  30. Marta_Loves_Spudgy

    omg martina please do an open the happy video on how you did your hair!!! please please please please please ill be ur best friend! ill give you a unicorn pony and we can feed it lucky charms and braid its mane and put ribbons in it and you can name it anything you want and ill make a pouch to put spudgy in so that when you ride the unicorn pony you can bring spudgy with you and simon can take a cab lol just kidding he can ride on the unicorn pony too and ill bring my unicorn pony too and we can have unicorn pony tea parties and omg my brain is exploding with cute ideas. but my point is can you do a tutorial on your hair? <3

  31. 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. Soy un dorito! I vote for SHINee in case you didn’t notice :)

  33. Ooh! I love you makeup and hair Martina!!!! <3 Oh, also, I vote for Taemin's SEXY Doritos!!!!! ^.^

  34. Bull-o Jerky!!! (only cuz i like beef jerky better lol) ah but yeah i so noticed the problem with the lip syncing I WAS ANGRY!!!!!! lol ahhh and omg i saw Gangnam style by psy when it was posted on AKP and lol i love it .. though what does it mean? i haven’t looked up the lyrics recently because too much school and work but i did try when i first saw the MV but no translations were up yet O.o but i hope it wins next music monday because it’s absolutely awesome!!! lol
