Yay! We’ve always wanted to do this song! It’s a really, really good song. Really good! It’s really old also, but we think it’s one of the few Kpop songs that actually aged well. Not sure about you, but whenever we listen to Kpop songs, we really like them for the first couple of months, but then, after a while, we can’t listen to them anymore. We loved Miss A’s “Bad Girl, Good Girl” at first, but now we can’t listen to it anymore. Does anyone else get that feeling with Kpop songs? There are a rare few songs that escape this pattern of intensely-love-then-can’t-listen-to-ever-again, and SHINee’s Replay happens to be one of those songs. In fact, it might be our favorite SHINee song ever. It’s definitely better than “Hello,” and – even though we liked the dance for “Lucifer” more – we happen to prefer the song for Replay.

We’ve also gotta say, we’re quite impressed with what Kpop’s doing outside of Korea. There’s a lot of attention being paid to the SM Town Paris, as well as the impact of Kpop in Japan. Seriously, when we were in Japan for a couple of days, it was amazing how popular Kpop was there. The convenience stores had lots of Kpop magazines there, TVXQ was advertising something in the Japanese 7-11s, and we even saw some girls on the elevator watching to Super Junior’s “Bonamana” on their cellphones. Now we’re seeing SHINee and Girls’ Generation releasing tracks in Japan. SHINee’s also supposed to be performing in London pretty soon as well. When we first came to Korea three years ago, we didn’t know that much about Kpop at all; we didn’t hear about it when we were in Canada. We wonder if that would still be the same now. Looking at the stats for our website, Korea’s not even our #1 source of traffic. It counts for only roughly 12% of it. We know that it’s a bit difficult to trust the Korean media’s take on hallyu and the spread of Korean culture, because they’ll always be more likely to toot their own horn louder than usual, like a mother praising her child’s accomplishments, but – from an outsider’s perspective, seeing as we’re not Korean by blood, marriage, or even visa status – we’ve gotta say that we’re impressed as well.

So hooray to the Japanese version of Replay, which seems to have translated well into Japanese…we’re guessing. We don’t speak any Japanese at all. Wish we could give it a Japanese meter. Anyone here know what they’re saying? As for the Japanese in the song, you’d give it a __ out of 5? We’re curious if they say anything like Loverholic Robotronic Supersonic Hypertonic…cuz that would be great if they did! We’d assume that the Japanese has to be better than the use of English in the song: for the Kpop version, the target audience is Korean, and English is sprinkled in; for the Jpop version, we’re assuming that the target audience is Japanese, and the English is still sprinkled in (with little to no improvement). The Japanese is dominant in the Jpop version, though, so somebody better have done their homework.

Replay Macro

All The Boys Love Me

As for the video itself, we’re a bit confused with the story line here. Our best guess is this: all of the guys are doing their own thing, and then they see this girl while they are all doing their own thing. They each, separately, fall in love with her. At the end of the video, when they’re all in this random room talking to each other with MacBooks and acoustic guitars (what are they doing in that room, anyway?) she walks in, and they all awkwardly laugh. Somehow, by looking at her, they all come to the realization that they have a crush on the same girl. Is that right? That’s our best guess. If that’s what the video’s supposed to be about, then a) this girl has one wickedly busy schedule if she’s doing art class, dance class, coffee shop studying, and fashion modelling, but that’s just a quibble. B) What’s this room that she walked into? How does everyone start laughing? And, more importantly, wouldn’t she feel awkward, knowing that all of these guys totally have the hots for her and are nervously laughing in front of her? We’re guessing that maybe she’s happy, because she happened to wrap and entire Kpop group around her pinky finger. Dont’ hate the player, hate the game.

Also, in our last video on F.T. Island’s “Hello Hello” we joked about the Kprop shop and how the same things are being reused in different Kpop videos. Did you see what was reused in this video? Anyone? It was by another SM band. That’s right: it was from TVXQ’s “Before You Go”, when they use the Matrix cameras. See, back when they used it for the TVXQ video, we found it kinda funny. Sure, it was befitting the context, in that Yunho jumps up and shoots his gun off midair, so the matrix camera made sense. Here, though, using the matrix camera for a pirouette and an awkward basketball shot just seems…awkward. Matrix cameras are cool when used for action sequences, and should not be used every time somebody jumps.

Otherwise, we hope that everyone was impressed at the introduction of our new Kpop group, F-Art: Fantastic Artists Reaching for Top. We were inspired by all the names we saw on Soompi’s article on Kpop names. Names like MBLAQ, F.Cuz, CN Blue and such made it clear to us that Kpop bands must have ridiculous acronyms in order to qualify, so we made ours. F-Art. We’re artists at heart, and we’re reaching for Top, though Martina’s idea of Top might be different than Simon’s idea of it. That doesn’t matter. What does matter is that when we finally release our music video and album, make sure you buy it. We need to start thinking of a name for our fangroup as well. Maybe the Farticles? Get a group of you together and you should be called the Fart Cloud. P.S. yes, we’re adults and we still find fart jokes hilarious.

And on that note, since SM is doing so much in Japan now, we’re gonna recommend checking out Super Junior’s “Bonanama” single in Japan. It only seems fair, seeing how we saw girls in Japan watching Super Junior on their cellphones, and also seeing how we always tend to end off our WTF Contest videos by accidentally singing Bonamana. Hooray to Kpop in Japan! If you’re interested in buying the album, they ship internationally, so don’t worry about where you live. Yeah!

    Am i deaf or something but did I hear “bałagan” around the second minute of the video?? O.o”

  2. The clay bust of the girl is a kinda parody of that Lionel Richie music video.

  3. Cloud Flame

    i think i like the i think i liked the korean version better

  4. WAIT. I FOUND A MINHO LINE. NEVERMIND.

    I’m sorry, I’ll stop now.

  5. And yet Key has not lost ONE SINGLE LINE.

    And Minho has even less. If any.

  6. HA! Seeing this made me watch it again and notice that both Onew & Jonghyun have lost major lines/now have to fight for their lines in competition with Taemin.

    I don’t know whether to laugh because everyone always underestimated the maknae OR cry because our Jjongie is becoming a senior citizen.

  7. BIGBANGBIGBANGBIGBANGBIGBANGBIGBANG XD SARANGHAEO even if big bangs tonight video is similar to their korean video =P oh well BIG BANG FTW!

  8. Thank-you for the link to the album, I shall have to buy that… when I’m not broke… >.>

    SHINee of course!!!!!!!!!! bigbang’s japanese MV is almost exactly the same as their Korean they didnt even try to make a different one so i dont think they deserve it.

  12. That matrix camera, well, i kinda like it. And I think it’s an SM’s prop because i’ve noticed that they used this camera not only for TVXQ’s Before u go but also for SHINee’s Lucifer, SNSD’s Genie Japanese version and BoA’s Hurricane Venus.

    SHINee~ Cause I’m a hardcore shawol~
    But I dunno about the video sometimes. I’m a Taemint, but it seems like they’re putting huuuuuuge amounts of emphasis on Taemin is this video. You barely see Minho.
    NONE THE LESS. I LOVE SHINEE TO BITS.

    And did you notice that Jonghyun also washes his sexy windows? Even if it isn’t in the dance. :DD
    And I wish they came to Canada. SIGH. WE’RE SO NEGLECTED. </3

    I know that MVP is technically not a compliment, but it kinda make you feel like the Most Valuable Person? Haha yeah that’s what Onew meant…which is why his fans are called MVPS! XD

  27. SHINee!!!!! <3 Martina, Hi-five! Key is my favorite member in SHINee!! He is totally awesome and perfect(To me)!! <3

  28. Shinee……Taemin is the best. I love the part in the coffee shop even thought it did look a little awkward.

  29. sarah liang

    I like your laptop’s keyboard. It is so colorful n cute.
    Can you guys review the song, Intoxication, since you guys are using it very often, n I like the song too!!!!

  30. BigBang without a doubt. Their Japanese is better, their fashion crimes contain less pastel, and they have T.O.P. ;P

  31. SHINEEEE . AND SHINEE WORLD CANADA HWAITING ! 

  32. SHINee FTW!!!! Simon, I suggest you not let Martina vote whenever a group is against Big Bang…. She’d make a BILLION accounts just for them…. That’s total fan-girling right there XD

    cmon VIP…

  46. Man, this is a hard one. I love both Big Bang and Shinee so much and I really like both of these songs. 
    I don’t know Japanese, so I’m going to assume that both groups did marvelous, meaning I can’t use that to base my decision. 
    Video-wise, I like both. Shinee’s remake is nice and I like it better than the original Korean video. Big Bang’s video was also really good. Both involve the members being with the same girl and neither makes perfect sense. So I guess I’d pick Shinee because I like that fact that they remade it instead of just dubbing the original, yet it still has the kpop dancing. 
    Song-wise, I’d have to pick Big Bang. And not just because their Japanese version contains a lot of English in it so its more understandable to me. I feel this song is more…international, I guess. It is something I can see being a hit all over the world.

    Ah, I don’t know who to pick in this case. It has to be a tie for me I guess. 

  47. Super Junior and SHINee
    SHINee must win if SuJu’s name wasnt here

  48. SHINee all the way~ :D
    Cmon Shawols, we can DO dis xDD

  68. I can tell you they didn’t overdo it with the news about K-Pop SM Town Paris was… like… AMAZING!!! i swear 7000 people at Le Zenith sang like 14 000 O.O i was pretty amazed with the fans there… and i’d say compared to Asian fans…. ELF, SONES, SHOWOL, CASSIS & AFF(X)IONS it seems like we like each other… since usually people like one group hate the others but at SM Town everybody cheered for everybody… so i think the pics of the airport were exaggerated but not the pics of the Zenith.
    Damn we did a mexican wave going round like 8 times ;)

    Okay enough spazzing over SM Town… anyways Replay was lovely there fans sang along very lovely and very loud ;) so it forever has a space in my heart now ;)

  71. lol so annoying…………… IMA CHOOSE BIG BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  72. First off I love Replay and your review(s).
    The Japanese lyrics for Replay made sense, but the pronounciation was absolutely horrible, sorry Shinee. (Beast’s Japanese version of Bad Girl was somewhat less painful to listen to) So… 2 out of 5 maybe?
    Still voting for Shinee. Big Bang’s Japanese is less awful but getting a real remake of Replay 3 years later is just cool.
    The only KPop idols I can think of that have decent Japanese pronounciation are Supernova and DBSK.

    Oh and I also always get sick of the kpop songs I loved intensely just months before. Replay is one of the few songs I didn’t get sick of.

  73. dottykangaroo

    Edit: Sorry didn’t mean to double post!

  74. Although i like both SHINee and Big Bang, but SHINee is my bias!
    So, SHINee all the way!

  94. Big Bang mostly because their English in the Japanese mv made sense and it didn’t give off a creepy vibe that shinee did.

  95. I think Big Bang should win this one. I was a Shawol before I’d ever heard of Big Bang, but the Big Bang boys definitely rocked a better Japanese MV.

    “U-Kiss “Shut Up”… CNBLUE “L O V E Girl”… BILASA O.K!!!!!!!”
    And then we have-
    “What’s your friend’s attitude? Why she so damn rude? HAAAAAAA!!!!”
    LOVE LOVE LOVE THAT.
    And the off-sided FTI vs. CNB showdown. Heh. BUT NOOO FTI SHOULD’VE WON. I’ma go be depressed now.
    I vote for SHINee! Mianhae, Martina, but SHINee’s video was a bit more fun. Plus- they have an awesome dance too! ^^

  139. BIGBANG! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY IT! ARGH!

  148. SHINEEEEEEEE
    (to clarify, SHINee is better, younger, hotter, sexier, and SHINIER!!!!)

  149. bigbang!!!!!!!! Big bang will win!!!!!

  150. SHINee, because their mv and song is great, so’s Tonight, but they just basically used the same mv for Tonight…. And SHINee’s song is like 98% Japanese…. Tonight is like half is english and half is Japanese… So, SHINee <333

  177. SHINee ^^

    big bang’s videos are so monotonous. 

    and Martina, you’re holding the showdown bands the wrong way. ^^

  178. Yeah, I have the same intensely-love-then-can’t-listen-to-ever-again feeling with some K-pop songs, like I hear one song once, then I repeat it constantly during a couple of weeks an I include it in my playlists but a month or two later I start to pass it when it appears in the mp3 playlist. But then, about half a year later I rediscover the same song in my computer, and listen again to it, but not with the same intense love. I happened to me for example with MissA “Breath” or Super Junior “Bonamana”

    I love SHINee but I’m a HUGE VIP ^^

  184. I love them both but I have to go with BIG BANG because I liked SHINee’s Korean version better.

  185. Ahaha. Well the Japanese is pretty good. I’ve noticed SM has good Japanese to make up for their less than satisfactory English. I would give it a 4.5 as a Japanese speaker because the original song said noona neomu yeppeo (older sister is so pretty) and Japanese language doesn’t have a word like noona. It would just be… well. Older sister, like blood related like here in America, and then you’d be singing to your sister about how she is so pretty and that would be weird. They substituted the word noona a bit awkwardly but it wasn’t horribly translated, so 4.5/5. :P

  206. Rachael Murphy

    Okay, dancing-wise SHINee’s Replay would win, but I love the song for Big Bang’s Tonight much better and the video isn’t that bad to look at.

    So, my vote is for Big Bang. I tried my very hardest to be objective, oh but it’s sooooo hard.

  207. PS: My vote goes to BIGBANG-TONIGHT ! i love SHINee too ! But BIGBANG better !! =D
    VIP !!!!

  208. for the japanese of the video , i’m gonna giv a 4out of 5 !
    compare to Beast – Bad girl !! Replay is really awesome soooo good ! ! bcuz Bad girl japanese version is really ….NOT GOOD AT ALL !! weird !!! the prononciation was really funny , and sometimes annoying.
    i think the bands who can sing in japanese are FT.Island , TVXQ and Kara , BIGBANG (also SHINee level are good too) ! SNSD(girls generation) are same as Beast !! specially the japanese vers of GEE and Genie… really not good ! Taxi…was 3 out of 5 but the other songs are not really good !

  209. its really quite funny because…. all of those awkward moments you suggested… I know A LOT of people that wish that would really happen between the band mates ROFL O ohhh this one is hard (i love daesung <333 haha) I choose….. Big Bang! ^^ When Taemin basically took over all the lines of Jonghyun, it hurt u.u

  210. I’m sorry SHINEE but BIGBANG RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(especially TOP)

  211. Most DEFINITELY SHINee. SHINee shynee szajni. :)

  212. Sorry Simon, but i love Tonight :) BigBang!!!

  213. SHINEE!!!!!!! SHINEE!!!! SHINEEE!!!!

  214. Yay, I finally got a shout out on Kpop Music Monday! I love this song, both the Japanese and Korean versions, I really like Tonight by BIGBANG too. But I prefer SHINee’s Japanese video of Replay because it’s a different video with a different concept from their Korean version, whereas the Japanese version of Tonight is the same video but in Japanese.

    Dude dude dude! since this is the jpop version, why dont you pick an awesome Jpop big bang song, lie Beautiful Hangover! thats an awesome video, and a great song :D

  250. Stacy Dale

    I’d have to say SHINee’s Japanese single is better than Big Bang’s Tonight. Replay is pretty much a straight Korean to Japanese release, while Tonight sounds more like a US release than Japanese, there’s so much English. I’m not complaining about that, I’m just saying Replay fits the Japanese qualification better than Tonight.

  251. My Music Radar

    Awwww what a bouquet with a brick! >.< I know you SAID you liked the vid, but then, well you know. Anyway my vote goes to SHINee, I was into Jpop before Kpop so this totally works for me.
    Sorry but I think that your comments on their English are just a wee bit harsh, MVP? I wouldn't mind being someone's MVP…..Just sayin…^.~

  252. Martina, your hair colour is awesome!!! You look so beautiful)
    Simon, sorry but i vote for BigBang;)

  253. Park Bom screensaver!!! ;D And I love when Martina declares CN Blue as the winner and she keeps holding up an empty spot x)

  254. Martina got confused with CN Blue on her left and FT Island on her right.

  255. I will say this again cuz I really really really really really really want them to win… SHINEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

  256. JinDo Mann

    “U-Kiss don´t want to use me anymore” epic =D

    Martina CNBlue is on the other side ;) but its okay, coz you look really really pretty today!

  257. Shinee… !!! Thank you for your videos :DD

  258. Thank you for the video Simon & Martina! I didn’t vote for it and voted for Sunny Hill because I didn’t think you went into kpop converted to jpop territory! XD

    but anyway, I would like to thank Simon for clarifying what MVP stood for, I was so confused, I was like… what is THAT? D: but now I know, Most Valuable Player? pfffft… ok…. :D

    For the showdown I would vote SHINee because to be honest I didn’t really like the Korean version of the VIDEO.~~ The song is nice in Korean or Japanese. – Seriously after watching the Japanese version I was really impressed with SHINee and I actually like them now. Whereas before I was just like… “SHINee… meh~” So yes, SHINee! 
    (although I really liked Japanese version of Tonight aswell~~ GD’s English is awesome. 8D)

    Wow, global ESP!!!  I was listening to the korean version of this song THIS morning and was sad that you wouldn’t cover it because it was an older song!!!  I agree, this song is GREAT, one of my favorites and sounds good in Japanese, too (although I miss the “noona”).  Thanks for the video!  BTW. I’m Onew biased ;)  

    Voting for SHINee!!

  261. The japanese in this song actually makes alot of sense and I like the transition it underwent. Comparing it to the original is a bit futile since they didn’t translate the context of the song word by word. So actually it’s not about pretty noona’s anymore, just about the girl they like. I think their japanese company made sure everything translates well and makes sense to the audience (except for the engrish ofc). As for the Japanese of this song…I would give it a 4.5 out of 5 since Jorge’s and Taemin’s Japanese pronunciation is just failtastic! 8D

    Shinee’ Replay was so much better! The japanese lyrics are so awesome and the video & dance is great too.

  269. I’m a huge VIP and not even a SHAWOL but the Japanese version of Replay is better than tonight. I’m so sorry, GD-oppa. ;__;

  270. I love SHINee as much as the next person but I’m going to have to give this one to BIGBANG! X3

    I give my vote to BIGBANG! ^^ I love SHINee but Big Bang is the BEST! ^^

  274. Lol, is that pedobear on your fridge?

  275. 오모!  Is that a scouts uniform?  Man, that brings back memories. I haven’t seen one of those in years since I transferred to the cadet movement!  

    I have to vote Big Bang.
    I completely agree with the aging statement though.  Some songs have a very short shelf life.  I can’t listen to Bad Girl, Good Girl anymore either.

  276. the dance! LOL

    but… i vote for BIG BANG m/

  277. OMG< what kind of question THAT? SHINEE ALL THE WAY BABY!!!

  278. Kristel Billones

    Why… BIG BANG of course! <3

  279. My vote goes to SHINee’s Replay!!!! <3

  280. SHINee! gonna make simon happy =)

  281. I voted SHINee~♥♥
    They are hands down my favorite KPop boy group. I love their dancing and how their songs range from straight up dance to old school RnB. I was giddy when I heard “Love’s Way” and was like, dude, my dad would love this song because they sample a great RnB tune. :3 Also… SHINee is so hawt and/or pretty. x3

  282. hahaha.. ummm, Martina had CN Blue and FT Island the wrong way around… LOL

  283. I was actually going to vote for this song even before it came out, but I was like “Nah. It’s japanese. They probably won’t do it.” But you guys did it. LOL. Voting for SHINee because I’ve been following them even before their official debut, because it’s their jap debut single, BECAUSE NO MATTER HOW AWESOME BB IS THEY CANNOT WIN ‘EM ALL and because, um, I heard ‘shawols’ as ‘showers’.

    And I think that the MVP in their song actually means ‘most valuable person’? Random guess. AND IS THAT BOM I SEE ON THAT WALLPAPER :D

  284. SHINee with Replay! C’mon guys let’s make Simon happy!(:

  285. I noticed the video switch thing at the end too XD

    I have to vote for BIGBANG though, as much of a Shawol I am I will always be more of a VIP XD

  292. YEAH please for once let BIGBANG LOSE!!! :D I go for SHINEE~

  293. dabrennn almighty

    I love both D: But I vote SHINee cos I like their Jap video more than their Korean one too!

  294.  i think simon did that on purpose XD to make martina look bad hahahahaha..

  295. Voting for BIGBANG because i just want to see SIMON sad LOL

  296. Okay, first, I also like the japanese version of the video a lot better than the korean. The song though, doesn’t really do it for me. I’m more into the hardcore-manly-iish songs and videos like TVXQ’s Mirotic and Super Junior’s Bonamana. But then again I really~ like Key, even though I’m not a that big fan of SHINee.
    - But I’m voting for BIGBANG, because I like the song better. 

  297. Here for the Japanese. Stayed for the Mordney. :DDD

  298. Is it just me or did the CNBlue & FT Island vids get swapped up?

  299. Great video !! Thank you for your hard work !

    Juste for the record, I was in Paris for the SM Town and I can tell you that it was great. Very professionnel. But still, I’m Big Bang fan XD

    I’ve been really intrigued by the popularity of Kpop around the world as well. I recently bought and am currently reading an actual textbook about why K-dramas and K-movies are growing in popularity. Yes, there’s a textbook. 500 pages on Korean culture around the world….

    Also, SHINee is awesome and I agree this song holds up.

    well. I love Shinee…..but I’m a VIP.  BIG BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!

    plus, Simon, you kinda just challenged the VIPs by asking Shawols to win…..i was very close to voting for Shinee, but………hehe. i’ve always been kinda contrary.  xD

  303. So SHINee’s Japanese song was an exception??? Unfair!
