FT Island – Hello Hello: Kpop Music Mondays

June 7, 2011

Well this is something we’re totally not used to: this is Kpop, sure, but not the regular kind of Kpop we usually do. This involves people playing instruments, real instruments, and not fakely mashing them in an attempt to look as if they know what they’re doing, Bilasa style. FT Island’s “Hello Hello” is a rock song, played by a rock band, and almost has a trot-like feel to it. TVXQ’s “Keep Your Head Down” is probably the closest song we reviewed to a rock song, because of the guitar, but it was still a pop song through and through. This song, though, israther unorthodox for a Kpop song, and it’s a really welcome change from what we’re used to hearing.

We like the song. Yes, we like the song. But we did poke fun at the video. Doesn’t it always work out that way, anyways? We only review songs if we like them. Videos, though, don’t go through the same rigorous filtration process. This video wasn’t terrible, mind you. Just confusing. We even tried Googling people’s responses to the video in hopes of finding an answer that might be a decent explanation of what happened, and found nada. The best we could find was that it was filmed in Paju. Cool! There you’ll read the story behind the foreigners cast for the video.

And so, since we couldn’t find any decent answers to explain the video, we had to come up with our own: our guess is that he foresees the fire happening, and foresees himself running into the building as well and saving everybody. But that’s just an explanation for the overarching video plot. An explanation for whatever the hell is happening in that building is beyond us:

FT Island Hello Hello Macro

Not at all weird...

There are too many questions to ask here. Really guys…wtf? If you have answers to these questions, any one of them, please do share. We tried guessing and just gave up.

Anyhow, if you’re a fan of F.T. Island as Martina clearly is, we’d recommend getting their new album, which ships internationally. Huzzah!

  1. I laughed watching this! Thank you so much for making an FT Island MV. As for the invasion… since I’m moving soon ’cause the new owner of the tenement house we live in and rent our flat from is such an ass (that he clearly is for rising rent every single time and making us, tenants, pay almost for everything just to kick everyone out in the end and make offices from our flats) I would like to vote for FT Island. So they could walk to my home like a boss and burn this whole thing down! Mwahahaha! Sorry but I hate the guy, so yeah… FT Island is really welcome.

  6. CN Blue, ONLY because they’re clearly more ninja-ish then FT Island. Did you see they way they moved around the girl’s house without her noticing?  It takes real skill to hide in broad sight and not be seen ;)

  7. I like FT Island, but I’m going to vote for the happy love song…It was happy and fun, without being too cutsy..Yay! CN Blue gets my vote, but I wouldn’t object to FT Island joining the party :)

    Another blooper above the infamous ticker- there is a phone # :232-5019-482 .  If this is NY, US phone numbers are formatted as XXX-XXX-XXXX

    Oh man Hongki DOES = Hunky hehe.
    I just hope crazy fangirls don’t use the methods shown here for if they are caught in a burning building….
    I choose C.N.Blue, as at least then my house won’t literally/figuratively(?) light on fire…

    I think the secret lies in that there is no fire…it oddly reminds me of a scene from Scary Movie – viewer discretion is advised- (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWm0MbNaz-8).

    Although I like the dead ghost eternally re-living his final moments explanation. Poor HongKi

  26. I’m going to just make a comment about the fact that they keep reusing the same sign in multiple videos. Being that I work in the entertainment business as a designer I know that often anything and everything is reused for multiple productions.

    It a matter of budget, but I do think they should at least change the wording on the sign. That can easily be done without costing them much and would keep people from catching on that it’s the same sign. That’s what we usually do at most theatres I’ve worked in.

  27. FT Island all the way!  Especially if HongKi would sing while he is there…

    First off, outstand RE-use of the sun visor.  I’ll have to ask my friends on the Baltimore FD if they think they need to get a few.  I mean, we have sun here too.  Secondly, have you guys ever thought about trying out for a “random white person walking down street” role in a video?   It would be great to see one or both of you as extras – it would be like a EatYourKimchi.com’s version of “Where’s Waldo” … but only “Where’s Simon??”.  Or better yet (not to put you down Simon) …. “Where’s Spudgy??”.   Now that would be AWESOME!!

    As Always – Viva La Spudgy !!
