Kpop Music Mondays: 2PM “I’ll Be Back”

This week we review 2PM’s new music video “I’ll Be Back.” You know, the first thing we thought about when we saw this video was the Terminator saying “I’ll Be Back.” Then we saw that one of the members of 2PM is wearing a metal hand. Then the final dance sequence of the video starts off with the Terminator music. Are these just crazy coincidences? Well, turns out that it isn’t, as 2PM just said in a video that they meant to be influenced by it. It’s still kinda odd, though, how 2PM’s song is about love, while the Terminator is about ass-kicking robots. I guess they’re similar, kinda?

Anyhow, this video was a lot more difficult to make than the other Kpop videos, because of the — err — preparations that Simon had to go through for it. Last week’s U-Kiss in Man Bras, this week’s 2PM in Guyliner. Who knows what’s going to happen next week? It’s also a fluke that we’ve been doing so many 2PM videos, what with them being in the showdown last week and in our 2PM interview a little while back. Ah well. Big thanks also to our friend Jessica who did the make up for this video. Seriously, Simon sat for like 30 minutes gettign the makeup done. Hell! And he’s got a new found sympathy for girls who wear makeup: that stuff is not easy to wash off!

For this week’s showdown we pit 2PM vs Ga In to see who wears eyeliner better. By the way, Ga In’s video is completely, totally awesome, and if you haven’t seen it yet be sure to check it out. It’s one of our favorite songs of the year. Great song, great acting, great story, great eyeliner, great everything. Check it out!

One last thing: Spudgy cant’ do the dance for this week, because – even though the running man is easy to do – Spudgy’s bad hips and knees aren’t built for it, and we didn’t want to hurt him. So hopefully next week there’ll be an easier dance for Spudgy. Poor guy!

Thanks to [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations!

  1. So, I’ve been going back and watching old videos, getting myself psyched to (hopefully) come over as an English teacher this fall, and I have to say…I miss Mordney. I definitely think we need another Mordney appearance soon, because I never get sick of that joke.

  5. 2pm rocks the guyliner like it's 1999. Or better than Prince did in that song, anyway. But seriously. Somehow, they manage to look better in makeup than most women. And that's just not ok.

    Hahahah, Terminator was the first thing that popped into my head, though ;D Don't worry, Terminator is ageless.

    I'm voting for Ga In this time, not only because I loved the MV – yaaaay, tango!! and great story!! – but because she's always been the Queen of Eyeliner in my book, anyways.

    (Btw, have you heard Ga In's "Esperando"? It's totally dorky of me, but hearing her say a couple of words in Spanish made me giggle like a little girl)

  7. That seems like the obvious reason, though, doesn't it?

  8. Martina's students watched the video, and all of them burst out laughing when they saw the mule-kicking backwards running man. It just looked really out of place. Ha!

  9. I think I'm going to have to announce myself as the winner next week. Just cuz I was so sexy! On an unrelated note, someone on YouTube just said I looked like a trannie from Thailand :(

  10. That's what I'm sayin! We actually had a scene where we show Ice, Ice Baby, and the similarities are striking. We cut it from the final movie, though :(

  11. From 1:20 to 1:28, it reminds me of a workout video :)

  12. I vote for Ga In. Very cool video…film-esque. Quite different from all the poppy stuff we've seen in the past. And as much as I LOVE a guy in eyeliner I think 2PM took it a bit too far….Simon too ;)

  13. I will vote for 2PM since I like their song better and the heavy makeup doesn't look any better on Ga In even though she's a girl…

  15. Yeah, this just isn't on the same level of "Heartbeat" and "Again and Again."

    • Agreed… yet my boyfriend seems to like this song and he's never really gotten into 2PM… he's more into 2AM since I made him go see the Wondergirls/2AM this summer in Chicago :) He agrees that the dance is really bad though and I didn't even show him the intro from their performances with the blatant Terminator junk. He doesn't really care that much how they perform though just how singers/groups sound. Probably why he likes 2AM… they were really, really, really good live :)
