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!

  4. Now that taemin is taeMAN I think he should be able to pick out his manly man outfits! He should be wearing a tie like the rest of the group T3T darn you pink turtlenecks >□<

  5. SHINee~ Outfits are… hmm, a “bit” crazy? Song isn’t my favorite, but the video is interesting. Doritoooos~ Now the most popular from SHINee is TaeMan, another members are forgotten.

    Also, could you tell me how the winner named the Zelo’s dance? Because there were funny and interesting titles :D

    Simon wearing that sombrero and eating those Doritos has got to be THE BEST skit EVER!!!! well done Simon!!! well done!!!………hahaha!!
    yeah i agree i didn’t like their colourful outfits and their b&w outfits were amazing!!!! and Kpop lyric referencing from this is so hard!! there is nothing!!!!
    oh except now i do say ‘YES’ like Minho does in his rap part…..but it’s still not noticeable!! T_T Simon maybe you could start saying ‘you’re so beautiful, yes!’ to Martina!! hehehe!! i’d use it in life, but it’s weird to say that to anyone…..
    hey!!!!!!! SHINee’ll be back in….april!!! you don’t have to wait that long!!!!!

  13. The mic stand dance left me gawking at my computer. Really a fun video.

    And to answer your question Martina, if T.O.P were my boyfriend he could wear outfits picked out by SHINEE’s stylist on acid for all I care :P

  14. “Where’d I put that?” sounds like a potentially very dangerous catchphrase….I can hear the x-rated versions right now…I’m sorry but aren’t we all self-proclaimed nasties?…lol.
    Sidenote: This is definitely one of the most creative “in the box” videos done by SM…definitely a step in the right direction.

    I want that TAEMAN sweater !!!

    I loved the kpop conversation, it happens so often that I think about songs when saying certain phrases but since none of my friends are into kpop it’s always really awkward.. :D
    I also wanted an awesome dance in their new video, I mean it’s still a cool video and the song is so freakin catchy but I was kinda disapointed with the dance.. I expected something more complicated and more epic. :)

    Oh I almost forgot.. did I mention that I want that TAEMAN sweater !!!! :D

  24. Wait a second the first guy (with the blond wig) looks like one of the characters of Jacksfilms. Inspired by a fellow youtuber? :)

  25. The best description I’ve heard so far of Taeman’s outfit is “gay banana superhero” – the happiest of all banana superheros.

  30. FIrst of all….. MARTINA, I LOVE YOUR SHIRT!! Please tell me that it’s not some specially-made-exclusively-for-martina-designer-shirt… so that I might actually have a chance of getting a similar one (if you don’t mind :3)
    Moving on from the awesomest TaeMAN shirt…… Are you guise using the new wings and mustaches from the recent fanmail you got? Cuz they look so cool! Can’t wait for move colorful mustaches :)
    Also this might sound silly but my friends and I ALWAYS have the kinds of conversations you guys show in the video! It was even a bit scary how that’s the way my kpop friends talk to me…. Oh god, what are you doing to our lives, you, KPOP!!! :D
    And lastly, it seems like TaeMAN decided to keep on evolving from Taemin to TaeMAN and now he’s…… TaeSuperMAN with his…. ermm….. superhero outfit….. yeah. I wonder what should we expect from him in SHINee’s new songs…..
    P.S. Thank you gusie for reviewing SHINee’s song! =^ㅅ^=

  32. MARTINA DID YOU REALLY NOT NOTICE THAT TAE IS WEARING PENCIL PANTS? i find that shocking. it’s still a tragic outfit, but in a slightly different way.

    and ok does anyone else get a David Bowie feel from the Dream Girl album? i’m so enjoying it.

  33. this song don’t have a catchy dance, but in the same album there is a song “Beautiful” that has a super gay dance (1:31). is really catchy, everytime I heard the song I -try to- dance!

    • Not bashing or anything but I think a ‘girl-dance’ should have a little bit more thrusts and movements in the tights area. This is just a happy and fun dance that is really catchy, yeah ^^^
      BTW I love this song! ^^^

    • From beautiful to dream girl it seems like Key doesn’t have any rapping parts anymore and Minho does them all….I kinda miss Key rapping.

    • 아름다워 is probably my favorite song on the album, and I LOVE the dance. And I agree, it’s a great and super fun dance.

      • well, just because of the type of the dance, really girly (and the outfits don’t help too much). If someone it’s hurt because of my comment, I don’t have any problem on delete it.

      • Oh, trust me, you are not the only one! I do it ALL THE TIME. I can’t say sorry or play bingo without suju, can’t lose something without exo, can’t be curious or answer a phone without shinee, can’t like something without b1a4, can’t do a proper “yeah” without TVXQ, can no longer eat doritos without saying I am one, can’t say goodbye without miss A, can’t miss something without infinite, can’t wonder the time without 2pm or 2am, can’t put replay on youtube without shinee, can’t eat a lollipop without bigbang, can’t learn about electricity without f(x), can’t think ” OMG” without Minho… I can go on forever. XD

        • Can´t say “I don’t know” without block b or without breaking into a bad imitation of Yoseob´s vocals :’D

          4 years ago
        • My friends and I do that frequently (well, the ones who know and like Kpop, anyway). We’ll be somewhere in the school and it’ll be boiling and I’ll start singing “I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know but I’m hot, hot”, and my friend immediately responds with “You know what you know what you know what what I mean, mean”

          4 years ago
        • I have a kpop dance team (we’re about 18 people, most of us are nasties as well) and we talk like that aaaaall the time when we see something like sexy or nasty we start screaming “cream! cream! cream! cream!”!!!! And we have a pet dog and we make it talk with spudgy’s voice xD

          4 years ago
        • My fiance and i break in to kpop songs all the time. Today we were hugging and he was like “i can hear your heart beat” which led me to sing “listen to my heart beat” and him to sing “cause i listen to my heart beat one by one”…KPOP NERDS FOR LIFE!!!

          4 years ago
    • I don’t really do that when I’m around people, but when I’m alone… Oh Lord, when I’m alone XD Everything turns into a K-Pop reference

    • same here, can’t say anything without breaking into dance, by far the two phrases i say most are wow (fantastic baby) and stop (girl in the name of looove)
