Oh boy. Another GD&TOP video! Hooray! And we picked the romantic-esque one, just in time for Valentine’s Day! Great success!
Seriously, we did not plan on doing three GD&TOP videos. We knew we had to do High High when it first came out because it seemed to fresh. “Knock Out” we delayed doing until the requests became overwhelming. We liked that song, yeah, but didn’t want to seem overly biased. This week, though, we got something close to 2000 requests for Baby Goodnight. The others added up to barely 1500. Bah!
Anyhow, somebody please, please tell us what TOP put in that girl’s drink. We slowed it down, tried looking at it frame by frame, but it’s indiscernable. We were joking when we hinted at it being a roofie, but we can’t figure out what it’s supposed to be. A pearl? Olive? Anyone? We don’t put stuff in our champagne when we drink it. We…just…drink it. Otherwise, we gotta say that this is an awesome video. Awesome. You don’t really see well shot or well thought out videos lately, but this one’s really artsy for a Kpop Video. Seriously. We mentioned Top wiping the bottle dissolving into the girl wiping her leg. There’s also the scene where GD is pulling his jacket up onto his sleeping girlfriend, but right before that it looks like her leg, and it looks like her skirt is being pulled down. Instead, it’s the jacket being pulled up. First you’re thinking it’s raunchy, but then you realize it’s gentlemanly and caring. That’s really awesome for a Kpop video. Really. Bravo to whoever directed that video.
Sadly, though, this isn’t really our kind of song. R&B songs are so…90’s. We didn’t mind MBLAQ’s “Cry,” though. That was an R&B-ish song that really impressed us. We wish that GD&TOP would have done a video for “OH YEAH” instead, because that song’s awesome. In fact, it’s probably our favorite song from the entire album, and there’s no video for it! I think that’s what’s really impressive about the album: usually, the songs we review are great, but they’re the best songs on the album, where the rest of the songs are just ok. GD&TOP’s album is the first kpop album we reviewed that we predominantly like all of the songs for. Anyhow, we recommend the album highly.
