Now wait a minute! Wait a minute! Before some of you start yelling at us, or crying at us, or mumbling at us, about not doing Itaewon Freedom, believe us when we say that we’re really upset about it as well. We love that song. It’s hard for us not to say that it’s not one of our favorite videos of the year. But we made a promise when we started the voting system that we would honor the votes and do them justice. We want to encourage you all to take part in these vids as much as possible, and so it’d be just wrong for us to take the majority vote and toss it because we like another video better. We’ll only refuse to do a video if we really strongly dislike it, or have something against it, but that hasn’t happened yet. If we like the song and you vote for it, then we’ll do it, even if we like another song or video more.

And we’re really strongly opinionated when it comes to online polls, if you couldn’t tell by our post on Rain being snubbed by Time magazine. So, long story short, you vote we choose. In fact, we almost did SS501’s “Love Ya” this week, because – for some odd reason – we received a massive influx of votes for the song, even though it’s quite old now. Hmmm. There must be some fan group out there behind this…

But f(x) won this week. Huzzah! Because we actually really like the song. “Dah Duh Dah Duh Dah” may not win awards for lyrics of the year, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not catchy as hell! On that note, Nu Abo had “NANANANANANANA” as it’s chorus. Is there a pattern forming here? How many other f(x) songs have sounds for lyrics? Anyone?

Also, err, umm. What’s the song about, really? We looked at the lyrics online, and this song supposedly says something along the lines of discovering a guy, and they’re interested in him, and they’re worried for themselves because they like him so much. That’s our best guess. But what does that have to do with Pinocchio? The puppet whose nose grows when he lies, or the puppet who wants to be a real boy. Are they interested in a guy who’s a liar? Or, even weirder, are they interested in a guy who wants to be a real boy…instead of a fake one? The possibilities with the second option are…intriguing. And since when did Pinocchio have Mickey Mouse ears? Who knows. We’re quite confused. We’ll sing the song and Dah Duh Dah Duh Dah around the house, but we’ll have no clue why…

And, yes, for the record, we are in fact six years old, because farts are still funny to us. Call us immature if you like, but for the rest of our lives we will find farts humorous. We totally see ourselves at 90 years old, hobbling down the street, hand in hand, while our other hands are holding our canes, and giggling whenever we hear busses make fart sounds. Sorry if that’s not your style of humor. FART JOKES 4 LYFE!

A few side notes: we were lucky enough to attend the Super Inkigayo event in Jeju last weekend. Our video for it will go up later this week. We posted a few teaser pictures on our Tumblr page, so check that out if you’re curious, or ask the people over at the Jeju Weekly if you can’t wait :D We were lucky enough to speak with Amber from f(x) while we were backstage, and we aaaaaaalmost got her to do the intro for this week’s Music Monday. She was down for it, but management said no. Understandably so, because they didn’t know who we were. For all they know, we could have been asking Amber to say something that would ruin the band’s image, so it’s better safe than sorry. Even cooler, though, is that she said that she knows our videos, and used our Korean Washing Machine video. Booya! But that’s all we’ll say for now. Stay tuned for the full video :D

f(x) Pinocchio Album CoverAnyhow, because Amber was so nice to us, and also because she told us that she wouldn’t get offended by our Music Monday when we warned her about it, we’re more than happy to tell everyone to check out f(x)’s New Album by clicking on the picture to the right here. It’ll ship internationally, so you’ve got no excuse to not buy it. Shazam! And lastly, thanks to Ophelie from Miku Collection for giving Martina the awesome, awesome shirt when she visited from France. Yay! French clothes!

    Simon sure does love himself some rolling-down-the-window dancing. So in sticking with my fellow “yeaaaaaaaaaaah, women don’t fart” brother – I’m going with JYJ.

  19. jyj…even though i really don’t like Ayyy girl. The boys definitely look good rolling down the windows :)

    I also was confused by the lyrics… it seems to be she’s in danger because she fell to quickly in love and is afraid he’s dangerous? But how to take the danger seriously when there’s pink fart balloons and fluffy sets and outfits.

    I woke up this morning and my 1st thought was “ugg monday”…my 2nd thought was “ohh! Music Monday…YAY it’s Monday!!”

  24. Ooooh hard one, although there was a lot I didn’t like about JYJ’s video, there was a lot I liked too… I will go with F(x) though :D

    Speaking of farts… do you ever get gassy from kimchi… and if so, does your stomach ever get used to it??? Just wondering… the honey and I have been eating Korean food once or twice a week. I’m pretty sure it’s the cabbage-y kimchi that is making us farty… I guess I should invest in gas-x.

  25. I translated the lyrics here, if you’re interested: http://peppermint-kiss.tumblr.com/post/4797899828/f-x-danger-translation

    It’s not abundantly clear, but the impression I got while translating it was that they were comparing falling for this guy (whose existence is implied but never stated) to the whole part in Pinnochio where he considers essentially selling himself to the puppet master and getting drunk and whatever other dark seedy trouble stuff that happens before all the kids turn into donkeys. I haven’t seen the movie in a while, but I thought it was a cool reference…like how being in danger can be intoxicating.

    Hope this helps!

  28. I really don’t know who I should vote for; I looove~ F(x), they’re my favorite girlgroup, and I have been waiting for the comeback in like ages! But if I have to vote for the sexiest car dance, then I think it would be JYJ. I’m not really into the song, even though I love to sing and dance it, but the rolling-down-mah-sexy-window dance, is actually more sexy than the washing-mah-sexy-window dance.
    – To make a long story short; I’m voting for JYJ.

  30. I am highly anticipating the Amber video. It’s so ridiculously nice to watch your favourite stars speak in English. I must have rewatched the Nickhun video 20+ times.

    Cue the incoming hoard of Amber fangirls.

  32. I read somewhere that they compare the process of falling in love with that one of creating a Pinocchio puppet as far as the lyrics are concerned…And now instead of being focused on studying for my exams I will be waiting the video with Amber.And G Dragon.And Lizzy?Oh, I love you guys.Seriously.

  33. This was great. My vote goes for JYJ. I like f(x)- they’re one of the few girl groups I’d buy cds for, but I still like JYJ better. Even though f(x)’s video was more well done.

  34. As much as I like Itaewon Freedom (and as sad as I am that I didn’t get to see you guys cover the dance et al), this song is damn addicting. Daradara da dada. ಠ_ಠ Also THE WINDOW ROLLING DANCE WILL NEVER DIE YESSSSS. Seriously. The way you can incorporate it into any other context should be written down on your CVs.

    About the lyrics, allkpop sez “getting to know your crush is like constructing your own Pinocchio doll”. Because Pinocchio is made from lego and that puts you in the danger of stepping on it and cursing its ancestors to the twelfth grandfather, and after a few weeks you see that lego piece that burned a hole into your foot and he says “Remember me?”, trollface and all. Srsly.

    That is so cool that you almost had Amber do the intro lol. maybe sometime in the future you could get a bunch of celebrities on there, seeing as you know that u-kiss likes you haha (BTW saw the ukiss background on your laptop! rock on!! it’s the same as mine!) As for the window dance i’ll have to go with….F(x). i’m the ultimate JYJ fan, but F(x)’s windows were cooler lol. Fart Jokes 4 Lyfe!!

  36. YAY!! U-kiss computer background!! You guys are so lucky you go to meet them!! And F(x)!! They are my favorites for girl and guy groups. So from what I’ve read, this girl helped this guy get popular or made him more cool or whatever. And so he’s lying (Pinocchio) acting like he’s the reason why he’s popular. And this girl girl is like “remember me” because I made you who you are. Oh and the girl is in “danger” because she’s falling for this guy. Thats what I gathered so far
