Kim Sung Kyu – 60 Sec: Kpop Music Monday
Yay! An Infinite song! Well, it’s not really Infinite, it’s just one member, and it’s not really sounding like Infinite, but it’s still a good song. If you haven’t heard it yet, here’s Kim Sung Kyu’s (aka, Snuggle You’s) “60 Sec”
Now, something we didn’t mention in here is something we originally wrote into the script but then cut out because it seemed too preachy. We’ll include it here, because we can never be too preachy in our blog posts! Ahem: the dating advice we gleaned from this video sucks. Did he just skip out on a potentially wonderful relationship that would have lots of special memories, just because the relationship won’t last forever? So are relationships that end not valuable? I call rubbish on this one. Life’s about the journey, not the destination: even if you’re in a relationship that doesn’t work out in the end, it’s what you experienced in between the beginning and end that’s valuable. No?
Another thing we didn’t mention about the video. Was it just us, or did it seem like Snuggle You was really, REALLY into singing the song? Did you see his eyes close? Did you see how closely he held the mic. He’s really into it! We thought about another rock ballad song, namely, F.T. Island’s “I Wish,” and the Hunky One doesn’t seem as into singing as the Snuggly One. Hunky’s all got his eyes open, and he’s paying more attention to the camera, while Snuggly doesn’t care about anything around him apart from singing his song with all his heart and soul.
Last thing we wanted to mention that made us bust out loud laughing: when Myungsoo wakes up from his frozen time revelry, WTF splashes him in the face? Watch the video from 1:10-1:11. The water comes in on an angle only on the right side of his face. So, it’s not rain. What is it? Did someone throw water at his face? Like “HEY! CREEPY GUY! I don’t care if you’re a Kpop idol: stop staring at people like that you creeper!” But, if you look afterwards, you’ll see that nobody is there. Our guess: while Myungsoo was imbued with the ability to slow down time, Snuggly You gained the ability to run at super speed, so he zoomed past Myungsoo, spit a mouthful of water on him, and then ran away laughing. THAT’S THE ONLY POSSIBLE ANSWER!
Anyhow, it’s an overall cool song, even if we don’t love it as much as we love Infinite songs. Rock ballads aren’t really our thing, while Infinite’s music otherwise is so distinctively Infinite-ey, with their 80s aesthetic (even if we make fun of them for it sometimes). But, if you like the song anyway, make sure you pick it up by clicking on the banner above!
And, lastly, of course, we have bloopers for this week. None for our talking parts. We ripped through that this week with no mistakes, oddly, even though we’re mega-jetlagged, but the Spaghetti scene for us WAS SO DIFFICULT TO FILM. It should have been easy. Also, we announce the winner of the Janus CD giveaway, so check it out in the bloopers below.
