For some odd reason, last week two songs about Breathing were released: Miss A’s “Breathe” and B2ST’s “Soom” (which is Korean, I think, for “breath). We could only review one of them, so we chose B2ST, since we did Miss A a few weeks ago. Now, since this song is really quite new, if you plan on talking about it with your students some of them might not have seen the video, so you can score extra points for being on top of the kpop scene. Ha!

What’s good about this song is that, even though the English isn’t perfect, it’s a lot, lot better than the English in their other songs. In their last single, their chorus was “Everyday I shock” which was nonsense. This song’s English is better than that. Good for them! Oh, and sorry for those of you who voted for Lee Hyori last week when we pitted her against TOP’s “Turn it Up”. Martina was responsible for counting the votes. There’s a strong chance that the voting might have been rigged! This week we’ll be a little less biased :D

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