Kpop Music Mondays: Sistar “How Dare You”

January 3, 2011

Woohoo! Our first post of the new year is Sistar’s “How Dare You.” The video isn’t necessarily brand spanking new, because it came out before the GDTOP “High High” video, but it got an absurd amount of requests on our Request Form, so we’re gonna review it.

This video fits perfectly with what we’re interested in talking about anyways. Somewhat awkward English, fun video, memorable dance. Perfect! It’s not the best video out there now (we’re still really fond of T-ara’s “Yayaya” and can’t stop singing it), but we still think it’s pretty cool. What we find confusing about it, though, is that it was banned by KBS. There’s a stripper pole in the video, sure, but they only dance beside it for a few seconds. The rest of the video is a bizarre interrogation of a guy, in which, at the end of the video, they lock him in a tanning bed and murder him, Final Destination style. Is that why it got banned? Does anyone know the answer to this? Maybe our North American sensibilities are a bit, err, desensitized, but, yeah, this video wasn’t offensive enough to us to merit a banning.

Totally gotta love the bum-rubbing dance, though. It’s so ridiculous and hilarious, and we have no idea what it has to do with asking a guy “why are you playing these games.” We thought they first say “Wipe, play this game” which made a bit more sense, because they were, in effect, wiping their bums, just not in the traditional sense. That would be gross. Now THAT would merit a banning by KBS.

As always, JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* are awesome for so diligently translating all of our videos into Korean. Huzzah! Lastly, if you’re a fan of Sistar and want to get the album, you can buy Sistar’s Album here, and it will ship to you, even if you’re overseas. Huzzah!

  43. GD&TOP's knockout mv please please please! Just to see Martina spazz over TOP XD and because the mv…needs to be reviewed. NEEDS to be reviewed.
    And T-ara totally wins this week.

    6 years ago
  44. Wasn’t feeling the whole ‘Bitty dance’ vibe from Sistars. – I’d go with Kara’s ‘Mister’ for the best booty dance ! You guys should consider doing – After School’s ‘Because of you’.

    6 years ago
  45. For the next video can you guys do "Knock Out" by GD&TOP please!

    6 years ago
  46. Sistar all the way!!

    6 years ago
  48. and T-ara wins the butt dance hands down. They can pull off the cute look. I've gotta say though that Sistar's is hilarious to watch xD

    6 years ago
  49. T-ara… it`s cute :)

    6 years ago
  50. I vote T-Ara~!
    I also would like to request that you review TVXQ's "Keep Your Head Down" for next week.^^
    Thank you!

    6 years ago
  51. T-ARA. Their dance is so awesome!

    6 years ago
  52. T-ara!!

    6 years ago
  53. I really don’t like T-ARA but I’m voting for them~ lol.

    The best butt dance is definitely KARA’s Mister though!!

    6 years ago
    • Yeah, we stayed away from Kara because people have been complaining that we haven't been evenly matching our showdowns, and we thought Kara would crush Sistar in a butt dance showdown…

      6 years ago
      • Lol That's because Kara would crush Sistar in a butt dance showdown. lol

        6 years ago
      • Clearly Kara would crush. Your show-down should have been "Who has the better badonkadonk, Sistar's Bora or Secret's Zinger."

        6 years ago
    • I agree! Love Kara's butt dance! :) lol

      6 years ago
  54. Did u guys get another dog? At the beginning of the video Simon had a dog on his lap and it didn’t look like a spudgy.

    6 years ago
  55. Lol at rub a bum. Reminds me some of the MTV group 2gether a couple of yrs ago that had a song called "Rub One Out" (yes it's dirty lol). Try to find it. Dunno if it'd be out there or not. I lol'd at the TSA screenings. As a U.S. citizen yes if I'm going to be groped when I go flying I at least want a hot guy. Can I have GD or Kim HyunJoong please? :-p I like that idea lol. As for voting haven't seen both video's yet to really be fair, so not voting this time.

    6 years ago
  56. i vote for SISTAR ^_^ and DBSK please for next week !!!!!!!

  59. Good vid ♥

    I´m voting for bo-peep because I don´t really like airport groping (bad memories go away!!!)

    Requesting for next week
    Why (keep your head down)- Dong Bang Shin Ki (or tvxq)

    homin looking fly so I would like you to fangirl over them (like I am doing / no way! I´m not forcing anyone to fangirl over them *hides tons of people she already traumatized with her fangirling* )

    XD

    Bo Beep. Or is it Bo Peep??? Well, anyways I can't really concentrate on Sistar's video now that I know all the inconcistency in it. Watching it also made me realize a few more strange things. No, I'll go for old school, no story, just but shaking T-ara.

  69. T-ARA! The song is super catchy, and the dance is easy and addictive. Nice Robo Cup shirt Simon. I've seen the print online and never knew it was being sold on a t-shirt.
