DREAM GUURRRLLL!!! SHINee’s back, and we didn’t review them last week though we super love this song, but we’re talking about them today at least. YESSSSSS! If you haven’t seen it yet, check out Dream Girl and its awesome video editing here:

 

Hey: what’s up with Amber and Taemin and their terrible fashion? It just dawned on us today that they’re both androgynous figures in different SM bands. Taemin’s the male Amber, Amber the female Taemin. Is this something that’s a result of their personal dispositions? I’m not sure. I think it’s the clothing that’s picked out for them that gives them that image, and I’m not sure if they’re intentionally dressed this way by SM in an attempt to convey androgyny or if it’s just accidental. I doubt it. Basically, what we’re saying is we’re not sure how much of their images are controlled by SM, and – if SM is picking out their images – then we’re not sure if SM is intentionally going for the more androgynous look in both of them. Thoughts? Maybe we’re just looking too much into this. We’re just trying to figure out why the eff they’re dressed so terribly, why Amber was dressed in a male hanbok for Chuseok, and why Taemin looked like Pocahontas for Sherlock. Can you imagine if Taemin and Amber made a love baby? Actually, we can’t. Trying to. Hmm…nope. Can’t see it happening. We still stick by GD and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, though. That seems to be a perfect match.

Back to what we said in the video about SHINee, one of the things we’d do if we formed a Kpop band is make sure their singles have common English phrases in the chorus. Surefire way to popularity. There needs to be a song with “Bless You” in it. Just imagine all of the people you’d accidentally convert. There are polite people all over the world. You get them close to a sneezy person, they’ll be polite, and then start singing your song. Boom! And polite people are the kind of fans you want, anyway, not internet trolls. It’s a perfect recipe for success. Other phrases that need to be made into Kpop songs: “Who’s there,” “Where’d I put that?” “Pass the ketchup,” “Who is your daddy and what does he do”…

Actually, I don’t think we should get into the song making business.

Lastly, a sucky side note: we were so happy with the SHINee song and video that we wanted to go out and buy the album and give it to you guise. So we went to the CD shop where we usually get our CDs…but it shut down :( That sucks! We didn’t have enough time to drive out to a different one, so we just have to settle with telling you our intentions. We wanted to buy you a CD! Anyhow, since we’re not a source of CDs this week, but if you’re still hankering for the album, you can pick it up via either iTunes or YesAsia.

But who won the B.A.P. CD? We reveal the winner, along with some of our bloopers in this week’s Blooper reel! Whoa: was that ever a cheesy lead in!

 

And…GGRRRR! We totally forgot to order a copy of our Taemin “Soy un Dorito” shirt to wear for this week’s Music Monday. Too bad! It would have been totally appropriate. If you haven’t seen its awesomeness yet, do so by checking it out here. And then buy it! It’s so cute!

  1. Hey Martina, did you see that Taemin had a cameo on Dating Agency: Cyrano? episodes 4 and 5 (I think)
    I’m not sure what I think of the actual KDrama, the jury is still out, but I did think it was cool that Taemin had the cameo.

  2. LOVE your hair this week! (Are you tired of my comments about your fashion choices?….Sorry) I love you guys though. Martina, love the shirt. My FAVORITE part of the MV is the dance routine they do with the mic stands. Really liked this song though. I thought it was interesting that they took the time to tell us about all the special camera angles they used in the production of this MV AND WHO produced it, etc… Well hey, if you’re going to spend a little extra money on production I guess you should go ahead and point it out and toot your horn so everyone else can look at this MV from a completely different angle. LOL Bloopers were cute! I hope you got money from Doritos for that representation. Fighting!

  3. Lol, my typical grade school daily fall/winter fashion almost always consisted of a turtle neck. I had them in all colors and patterns. If he had a pair of flats and a bling-ed out hair accessory, he’d be a dead ringer for my 8 year old self (tacky fashion jewelry included)…lololol

  4. X”DD Hilarious video guise!! terrific work(as always)! :D Love you!!!! > . < (that coffee scene was humdinger X''DDD)

    Oh yeah… about the "Dream Girl" outfits… my first thought of them was "Am I the only one that finds these outfits ridiculous?? really?? (there must be something wrong with my head then *bangs head into wall* nope…feel the same @.@ )"

    ♥♥♥♥

    P.S: SUBS are back!! *yey* I actually missed them :D

  5. So, how come no one is freaked out about flower face girl? That image is very disturbing.

  6. I am SHINee biased, but it makes me happy to see how many who likes U-Kiss among the nasties. To me it seemes like U-kiss is very underrated, at least in Korea. They should have won more. They are so good. But at least they have lot of support on Eat your kimchi :) And since then know about EYK and follows it, it makes me even more happy ;) Me starting to love U-Kiss is very much because of all the EYK/K-pop music videos of them. I still love SHINee more, and doubt that will change, but U-kiss has grown A LOT on me, and is on my top list now <3

  7. I’m pretty sure U-Kiss is already demolishing SHINee in the showdown vote, so I don’t know if my vote will matter anyway, but I vote for U-Kiss as well lol.

  8. Shinee is coming back in April. You don’t have to wait for another year Martina.

  9. it’s flowerpantophilia now! xD

  10. HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE HELLO IT’S ONE OF THEIR BEST SONGS!!!!

  11. UKISS!!! UKISS!!! dIZZY ROTATING ROOM!!

  12. What was the name of the winning dance?

  13. I DIDNT FEEL ur excitment im litle bit despointed u didnt show ur love neither ur hate to this ahhh i mean u didnt talk bt the sttand mics and the mv quality i mean it wasnt just closed boxs like usual i dont noe !!

  14. hahaha love your TAE-MAN shirt xD U-KISS for the showdown :D

  15. I think I heard somewhere that the SHINee members are very close with their designer, Ha Sung Baek, and the members often collaborate on their fashion with the staff. And actually they also liked the concept for the almost-porn-woah-there-taeWOman photoshoot for the Sherlock album.
    Oh and you should put the TaeMan sweater you had on in the store! ;o; so cute ahhhh

  16. I was waiting for a “seeeexxxxxaaaaaayyy haaaaaai” reference :P TBH I quote that song almost everyday…

  17. SHOW DOWN VOTE GOES TO SHINEE

  18. don’t ask me that! it is imopsable to awnser SHINee and ukiss are awmazing. fine i will i geuse SHINee. i am sorry ukiss.

  19. I so Loved the set for U-kiss’ DoraDora!!!

  20. nooooooo… i can’t believe there were barely any mentions about all the references to dreaming in the video! like the transition between color and black and white scenes cos some people apparently dream in black and white, and how the dream girl’s face is covered with flower cos some people don’t remember faces from their dreams. this video was so thoughtfully and artfully filmed! i thought you guys would’ve at least mentioned it, if not delve into it :(

  21. U-Kiss’s video is better. The outfits are cooler, especially the blood red and black. The editing is less frenetic, so my eyes are allowed to linger on the eye candy. It’s generally less distracting — unless you count all the great dancing. Hmmm, hadn’t realized how much I appreciate U-Kiss….

  22. First, I vote for SHINee! :D:D
    And yes, Martina, I would love for my non existent idol boyfriend, Kim Kibum, to wear that outfit. (Pfffft, no, Key, don’t wear that. XD)

  23. Goodness,Ukiss vs. SHINee! i’m both, but i do agree with Ukiss :)
    I vote for Ukiss

  24. i agree with you about there not being a really memorable catchphrase in this song :(

    and randomly, today i was singing along with their song Dynamite, and i caught myself saying “Shinee-a-mite” instead of the actual word Dynamite, or as they say it, “Dy-e-na-mite”

  25. Oh my god! I had a Nasty dream last night about you 4! Okay, it wasn’t a “nasty” dream it was a dream by a Nasty! (ie. me… a Nasty…)
    ANYWAYS!
    I dreamt that I watching all 4 of you, the Nasty Crew, make a video and you were all wearing turtle necks and I was waiting for the punch line, but it just never came… I started thinking, oh god, have they converted Martina? and now she is making everyone wear them??

  26. There is a dance version to this song though :)
    And I’m going to have to go with SHINee

  27. Exactly! I thought the overalls looked super duper cute on him, but its most likely cause I think he is super duper cute. If anyone else wore the pencil eraser pants id probably cringe but when I saw it I couldnt help but think “well he is experimenting, i guess” His face helps me forgive all fashion wrongs ^-^

  28. I think u-kiss was quite amazing in spinning rooms but they seemed more depressed than they had to be, and SHINee had some fun in their spinning room, but it looks like they were having too much fun with a touch of alcohol intoxication. But I have to say SHINee wins my vote. So SHINee fighting!

  29. this was my favorite sketch ever. <3
    my conversations in real life are exactly like this. Most of the time no one gets me but i don't care because i'm too happy singing~

  30. I am definitely a KissMe, but I have to admit, SHINee’s crazy rooms were more polished looking than U-KISS’s. That platform that U-KISS had to stand on to “lie” on the bed just bothers me every time I see it, even though I love Doradora. U-KISS looked stiff in those awkward positions, while SHINee got to bounce around and really interact with the environment. Probably the difference between 1 comeback per year and 3.

  31. “Go home Shinee, you’re drunk.” That made me lol.

  32. Martina, I’m with you with the dancing, but I think the dancing with the microphone stands. I choose U-Kiss for the showdown. I liked the rooms in Dora Dora better.
