Happy Halloween everyone! Yes, we know: yesterday was Halloween, but today we’ll still present to you the Halloween Edition of Kpop Music Mondays with Girls’ Generation’s “Hoot.” Now, this video just came out last week, but it’s bound to be huge, as is just about every other SNSD song, so we’ll present it now while it’s still fresh. If you’re a teacher, you’ll probably be seeing your students doing the dance to this a lot, or at least be hearing them singing Hoot in the hallways.

Anyway, it was time we did another girls group, since we’ve been doing so many kpop boy bands lately. Question though: anyone else seeing a trend with Girls’ Generation songs? I think Run Devil Run was about a guy that wasn’t treating them right, and this one is about the same, isn’t it? It’s totally bizarre, because I’m sure that any guy dating anyone from Girls Generation would be too busy with his mouth hanging agape the whole time to be able to talk to other girls. It’s also quite hilarious how different bands pander to their audiences in different ways: SHINee’s Hello was all cutey and captured teenaged hearts. Girls Generation, on the other hand, are all dressing up in different sexy costumes. Ha!

So, in the spirit of Halloween and giving out treats, we’ve got another giveaway. We’ve got a copy of Girls’ Generation’s new mini-album, “Hoot” and their promo poster as well. If you want to win one, head over to our Facebook page and leave us a comment in the post to the video telling us what costume you think Spudgy would look best in. Now we have him as Spiderman. Any better suggestions? We’ll pick one random person next week and mail it out to you. Happy Halloween!

And big thanks to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations!

Also, I’d like to say wow! Isn’t this button here to the right of these words so cool? I mean, look at it in all its splendour! Did you try pressing it yet? It’s really awesome. Like, shazam wow! If you haven’t pressed it yet, give it a shot :D

  1. YAAYAAYA SUJU WON XD ahah love them soo much and the song No other too x3

  2. Errr, 훗 is Korean, not English. 

  3. Can you do a video of Super Junior No Other??? Thanksss

  4. yay super junior was way more cute!!!!!!!

  5. When they say hoot I do believe they are referring to it in korean not english. in korean it's like a combo of a scoff and a laugh.

  6. Burninating the countryside…
    Burninating all the peasants…

    OMG… where the hell did you get that shirt?! I was singing that song throughout my senior year.. good times!

  7. If you write Hoot in Korean, it is í›—. We use this when we want to laugh at something or we think we are superior than others in a cute way. Actually there is no specific meaning. It's like "Haha" or "HeHe".
    I think the word hoot is just there for fun. The sounds are the same when you say "hoot" and "í›—". No spesific meanings there.

    Anyhow, I am a high school student in Korea. i am such a huge fan of you guys! You guys know a lot of Korean pop music! I'm very impressed.
    I want to go to Bucheon Yeogo.ã… ã…  Come to my high schoooool!!! I assume your class might be fun.

  8. SNSD girls' generation DUH! pfft….better put girls' generation……

  9. Hahaha,,what a nice video,,i'm also loved girls' generation hoot !!! :)

  10. DBSK!!! No doubt. You know how much those full out animal costumes cost? Man…hard work right there xD

  11. Just a note.^^ That "guy" in there is Siwon from superjunior. :D

  12. isnt "hoot" used as a korean word "í›—" which is basically like laughing at someone?
    sooo i dont really think it is used 'incorrectly' :)

  13. Are u guys gonna do how to dance Kpop 2010??? Plz~~~~~~ do so!!! Looking forward to it so much!! BTW You guys (&Your videos) are awesome!!!!

  14. Of course TVXQ – Ballons MV is better…

    TVXQ jjang!!

  15. AYYY GIRL is the best……….

  16. I can't believe more people liked Super Junior! Something must be rigged! Really? Super Junior!?!

  17. why you compare the old MV (DBSK) and new MV (SNSD)?? for me I will choose DBSK, their MV concept is funny…^^

  18. Although I do love me some Choi Siwon in the SNSD vid, DBSK wins me over with their costumes! Simon and Martina, you are brilliant! Keep up the great work :)

  19. DBSKs Ballons costumes are awesome!!! I vote DBSK!!

  20. i prefer DBSK. they're look very happy in Ballons Mv and make me miss them T_T. sorry my english bad

  21. TVXQ, of course!!!
    Look at Changmin, does he so cute???
    And at the end of the MV, Jaejung trying to make the little boy dancing?
    No, no, TVXQ have to win, they're the cutest!!! ^^

  22. DBSK for the win~~~~ ooooof course!!! How can you get more adorable than that?!?!? keke
    rofl… SM and their English…. rofl….

    I totally agree with the fact that their dance moves and the MV does NOT go together though…. Siwon was awesome… but they totally lost me on the MV… >__<
    but… SNSD.. without a doubt is getting prettier by the day and they seem to be getting better at singing and dancing too… finally feels like singers than a group of girls singing… if that makes any sense~ :)

  23. SNSD more luxurious

  24. i voted for nsd
    why? 1st becoz its 9:5, i prefere 9
    i love ballon by dbsk because its return me when i was in kindegarten school, since my last child time isnt full of ballon i voted for snsd hoot. snsd hoot inspired me to shoot my aim in the future. a lot of aims that i might be reach….

    in snsd hoot, siwon also appear…. i love siwon so much, adding since he filmed athena n the character suitable in hoot mv. the costum, the coreo, and the girls, i like all….


  25. Nice glasses, Martina :)

  26. SNSD!! SNSD!! SNSD!! Totally pretty pretty pretty pretty angels.

  27. DBSK!!!!!! "BALLOONS" HANDS DOWN!!!!!

  28. i think that DBSK looks better in costumes. its mostly about talent though. not just their looks. i also like how for Balloons, its about being cheerful and fun in their music video.

  29. DBSK Forever!!!!!

  30. my vote goes to DBSK for sure!!

  31. SNSD for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. Totally missed the gunplay part. Bah! Sorry about that.

  33. SNSD wins! :) By the way, the Korean James Bond is the super cute & handsome singer turned actor Choi Siwon from Super Junior!! <3

  34. my vote is to DBSK for Ballons!!! =)
    i love dbsk!!
    always keep the faith~~!!

  35. DBSK with Balloons, also watching the parody of Balloons with strange subs implying furries, interesting. Especially, since it was my first exposure to k-pop, well that and SHINee.

  36. DBSK!!!! looks so cute SNSD nah

  37. I'm liking the new SNSD album. The retro theme really works for them and their voices too with it. I'm not familiar with the other group so I'm again not voting. Wouldn't be too fair since I don't know anything about them and all. With the end of the SNSD "Hoot" mv I figure it may be an opening/continuing to the next single. I think they've done that before. My memory is a little fuzzy on that though.

  38. SNSD…well, they really did a decent job in Hoot. But my vote still goes to TVXQ since thet got five different cute animal customes which fit their characters perfectly.haha!

  39. I died with the "dragon time" and the "Grammar Grandma" xDD
    They totally made m day xDDD B)
    my vote goes for DBSK

  40. Hi Simon and Martina, can you guys post more about teaching in Korea? I think it's how the whole eatyourkimchi thing started, but we haven't seen any videos or anything about it in forever! I want to teach in Korea, so more videos on it would be great.

  41. On the point of the costumes for sure DBSK wins!!!
    In their music video with the animal costumes it was just pure cuteness overload. I think that the music video is suitable for all ages only the "HOOT" music video by SNSD might not be suitable for a few younger viewers…yes my reason of the cowgirl costumes, and guy in the beginning. For SNSD, I think in all their music videos for me their dances are pretty simple. DBSK's dances in their music videos back then were always challenging. Just makes it more fun. DBSK rocks on !!!

  42. SNSD's Hoot dance is not just about bow-and-arrows. There's also some gunplay. My favorite part in the dance is when the girls blow smoke off dual-wielded pistols.

  43. My vote goes to my fave band….. DBSK! I loved their cute animals costumes compared to 소녀시대's spy girl concept. By the way, sometime review a song by 2AM! Like one of their new songs?

  44. DBSK, without a doubt. JYJ was actually featured on the Yahoo! frontpage the other day.

    I checked on the lyrics and they sing a line (from what the translator tells me) "Your arrows are trouble." I think that's why they are doing the bow and arrow Legolas thing? Crazy that the title looks like a cowboy. I never would have picked that out without you guys.

  45. DBSK wins for costumes, but….SNSD's were way hotter!

  46. I've read in books…("You've read books?" "Yes, I have.") When someone says something and the other person "hoots" with laughter. Maybe that is what they meant about hoot. If I was SNSD, I wouldn't just HOOT when the jerk SHOOTS off his mouth, I would gang up on this GALOOT and BOOT him out the door…..or if he is especially abusive….maybe out the 20 story window. Okay…maybe only a 2 story window. WOOT! WOOT!

  47. These vids just keep getting better and better…and they started off fantastic! XD Hoot is such a catchy tune~
    People online were talking about how much the Hangul looks like a person. haha

    My vote: DBSK!!!! Those were the best costumes ever, and that song!! SO CUTE~^.^

  48. haha when it comes to costumes DBSK totally wins. When it comes to sexiness in that particular video… well, that would be SNSD…
