What’s this? A NON-G-DRAGON song for Kpop Music Mondays? Whaaaa? Congrats to F.T. Island with their video “I Wish” for beating out T-ara and Secret for this week’s Music Monday. Not sure if you’ll be happy with our review, though, since we REALLY didn’t like the video. Check it out if you haven’t already:

 

Please tell me we’re not the only ones that found this video boring. F.T. Island usually has really cool videos! We loved talking about Hello Hello and Severely. Those videos had sooooo much to talk about. So, when we saw that F.T. Island was voted in this week we were like “Awesome! Let’s see what goodness this video has to offer.” Poop. Nada. An emotionless girl dating all of the members of the band. She walks away from the Hunky One, and then he makes her touch his heart. THAT’S IT! Well, lots of shots of the band playing music. Great. We’re ok with band’s performing. No issue with that: but the rest of the video was just so ill-conceived and irrelevant. The best we could do with it is uncover the fact that she’s a brain-sucking zombie vampire. Other than that…ZZZZZZZZZ.

Also, I could be wrong, but do the lyrics seem really simple? Our Korean isn’t the best here, so help us out. From what we’ve read online, the lyrics suggest that he likes the girl a lot. She’s really pretty, and he really, really, really, really, REALLY, wants to be with her, and can’t think of anyone else. But that’s about it, no? There’s not really a message about love, or about life: just singing about how obsessed he is with the girl. PLEASE: IF WE’RE WRONG, LET US KNOW. We just didn’t see anything interesting in the lyrics, either, like we did in G-Dragon’s “That xx,” for instance (but, then again, we don’t really look into the lyrics of songs that often).

Otherwise, we’re still working on our apartment! Sorry it’s so barren. And it’s so echoey because it’s so barren. We still don’t have any furniture. We ordered something on Sunday, though. Huzzah! It should be coming in on Thursday. WOOHOO! Side note: Korean furniture is really…umm. How do I say this nicely: it’s not something we find appealing. Korea really needs an Ikea. REALLY DESPERATELY. Not that Ikea is the best when it comes to furniture, but it’s a lot nicer than 95% of the furniture we saw.

And, on that note, if you like FT Island’s song more than you liked their video, make sure to pick it up via iTunes or YesAsia. Also, we’ve got a few bloopers and extra scenes for this week, though it felt weird not having an actual skit. Hmm. Buuuut, Martina did get a bit carried away with Dr. Whatderhexerfrigginname :D

  1. It’s a shame they don’t do two videos a week :(
    Then they could do both Epik High and Miss A this week.

    Btw I found out from snooping around that you’re a fan of Epik High; can you help us vote for them? ^^b

  2. How about Epik High? Do you want to know what S&M have to say about this bizarre video? :D

  3. Five people watching one person is creepy enough, but seven is just disturbing. So my vote goes to Infinite.

  4. Well, they already used her for Park Bom’s Don’t Cry. And when it comes to bad acting, what’s the second thing you’d think of? Alligators. Of course.

  5. Answering questions. It’s a skill, trust me.

  6. SIMON!!! I´m disappointed, didin´t you guise clearly hear when the honky
    one ask fot “MUCHO QUESO” ???? commooon he and taemin can make a CF for
    a super cheese Doritos edition

  7. GOSH DARN IT! I want U-KISS’s video to come out already! Till then I’m just pushing an imaginary vote button, oh and believe me I am.

  8. oh S&M….you did it again. Made a spectacular KMM out of a boring video. How do you expect us to vote for interesting video if you keep this up? :p

    loljks, I loved it!! Hahahaha brain-sucking space alien!! IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!!! o.O
    And funnily enough, my favourite part of the review is when Martina tried to bring over Dr. Whatderhexerfrigginname, who was, uh, obviously Martina in a costume….thanks for pointing it out Simon, I would never have guessed :p

  9. I liked the song (for once), but I didn’t really pay attention to the video all too much ahha. I would only notice the band member scenes because I SUPPOSE… that was the most interesting part haha.

    MUST VOTE FOR U-KISS, CANNOT HAVE G-DRAGON D’X

  10. I give the shirt a 5 out of 5 for making it clear that he is not a stripper.

  11. I was secretly hoping for queso (cheese) to appear. =3=

  12. the laptop is sooo frickin’ distracting! i lik it though. anyways…go u-kiss!! i hope anyone who reads this comment votes for u-kiss!! cuz g-dragon (CRAYON WAS SOO AWESOME) can win the week after! so SO U-KISS!

  13. I had to join in with martina in the bloopers. “Blow your mind~” *dancing*

  14. oohhh Martina!! you so FANCY!!!!!
    Simon….why on earth were you distracting me???? Martina was less distracting!!
    and
    Dr.Whatderhexerfrigginname was awesome!!!

  15. Korea have no Ikea? Gasp*

  16. Simon holding the laptop in the background was hilariously distracting, I couldn’t stop giggling. I loved your explanation of the video, because yeah I agree it was rather boring. I don’t think I’ve watched the actual video since the first viewing. I do however really like the song with it’s Spanish rhythm, it’s catchy and easily got stuck in my head.
