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!
