SHINee “Dream Girl” – Kpop Music Mondays
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!
