Sistar19 – Gone Not Around Any Longer: Kpop Music Monday

February 12, 2013

Sistar19 is back with their latest single with ultra confusing title “Gone Not Around Any Longer.” Punctuation. Needed. A comma or something would make this easier to read. Anyhow, here’s the video if you haven’t seen it yet:

So, for starters, hooray for girls getting reviewed two weeks in a row! Great success! We know it was a close call between Sistar19 and Infinite H (what’s with all the subunits, yo?), but Sistar was on top by midnight. Not that being on top is the deciding factor for us anymore. If there’s a really special video in second or third place we want to talk about instead, we’ll go for that. In this case, we really wanted to talk about Sistar19’s video.

For starters, this is pretty much the most memorable dance of the year thus far, as far as we can tell. Though, it really does remind us of their dance for Alone, which was one of the best dances of last year. It has the same slow, sensual sway that they used when drawing with their toes on the ground. Here, they follow the same pattern, but with their bums. DID SOMEONE SAY, LEVEL UP?!?! Ha! And rubbing their bums on tables made us lol, too. Problem we had with filming this, though, is that all of our tables are standing tables, except for the small cocktail table we have in the interview room. OH GOD! I hope no future interviewees see the skit and then look grossed out when they see the table. I can totally see this happening: we have Sistar19 over for an interview, give them a glass of water, and then they’re about to put their glass down on the table, but they make a crinkle face, and then it flashes back to this Music Monday with horror music. Cut back to Sistar19 with them saying “no thanks! We’ll just hold our cups.” HA! That’s gold I tell you. GOLD!

Otherwise, one thing we didn’t really talk about in our review is how we liked the structure of the lyrics in the song. You’ll hear at the end of a lot of the lines “eeta opta” which roughly means “exists / doesn’t exist” or “is there / isn’t there” or “I have it/ I don’t have it” or something along those lines. Hell! This ain’t Korean class ok! The point is, they’re opposite words, and they’re about being there vs not being there, and the way they’re delivered in the song works so well. The quick delivery of “eeta opta” followed by the bit of silence really parallels the feeling of something being there, and then quickly, without warning, not being there. This is also paralleled with that awesome scene in the video when Hyorin’s pushing her boyfriend, and he vanishes through the doorway. HOLY CRAP! That scene was so freaking powerful! Nothing else in the video really matched it, especially after the video jumped the shark at the 2:30 mark with TRANSPARENT PIANO MAAAANNNN, but that part of the song and video just worked so freaking well together!

Anyhow, if you liked the jazzy sexiness of this song as much as we did, make sure you pick it up either in iTunes or YesAsia. Oh! And we mentioned that we MIGHT not be doing a Kpop Music Monday next week. We’re not sure. We really want to, we’re going to try to, but we can’t be as sure as we usually are. See, we’ve got a super top secret project that we’re not allowed to talk about, and it miiiight get in the way of our Music Monday making for the week. We should be announcing it on the 15th, so you’ll know then what we mean. DON’T EVEN ASK US NOW, CUZ WE WON’T TELL!

And, on that note, we leave you with some more SUPER NASTY bloopers, which you’ll watch only because you’re the nastiest of nasty people. Yes, yes you are. OOH YOU SO NASTY!

  1. Martina, the hair is THE BOMB!!!! Excellent!! Simon, your image has been moving up quite nicely. Both of you are doing some great work on your fashion representation that, I know you guys hate being judged; but it matters. And both of you appear to acknowledge this once again. Agree about the camera shots that Simon pointed out but I am just about over the whole middle of this MV, I hate that they have taken objectifying women to a whole new LOW!!! And I (seriously) hate the bum-rub dance “thing!” I prefer butt-drag! I was amused only at the beginning. After they used it through the whole thing, I was OVER it!

  9. The hair flip scene, Martina’s face, Simon’s ridiculous wig, i tried not to laugh because everyone around me would hate me for “disturbing da peace”, Safe to say, i’m not some people’s favourite person anymore.

  18. Yes! Sexamaphones! I’m right there with you Simon! I love me some sexamaphones. I also seriously love this song. I’ve been listening to it constantly for like the last week. (that and MFBTY’s Sweet Dream) Awesome review, as always, guys! I literally loled throughout the entire hair flipping scene. You guys honestly make me look forward to mondays :D

  19. “OH GOD! I hope no future interviewees see the skit and then look grossed out when they see the table. I can totally see this happening” …you could replace the table…or put a cute table cloth on…… – . -‘

    I hope the leak problem would be solved in time for your interviews and project :( *I hate wet socks* too bad the first visit of Meems at the studio is followed by a leak… *missed you Meems! > . <*

    You look tired guise… I think you shouldn't force yourselves and do KMM next Monday and just focus on the project… I'm sure it'll take you quite some time and you'll feel too tired… some free time (if I could call it that) wouldn't harm you … anyone else thinks the same?

    Take care you guise!

    4 years ago
  23. oh gosh.. the first time I heard it, I thought Simon said “I freaking love sex-on-the-phones…” I was trying to piece it together with the song.. and concluded that the speaking at the beginning was what he was talking about. Simon does a good job in giving this nasty that nasty misunderstanding.

  25. Thank you, Simon for officially disturbing me enough so I’ll see your bum table rubbing when watching that video lol
    As far as the showdown, my vote goes for “How Dare You”. It’s still one of my favorite Sistar songs.

  30. I like Sistar(19), I like the song, but I think the dance is just… I know people say Sistar is classy-sexy but I really don’t agree. It’d be nice to see them with some strong choreo for a change.

  51. no kpop monday next week? so… nu’est is having a comeback this week… and then shinee is having a comeback next week… does this mean nu’est is getting screwed over yet again?

    oh man, this announcement better be the bomb.com or else you are going to have a bunch of angry L.O.Λ.Es…. doing questionable things… and anger…

    • and B.A.P and Teen Top.

      So pretty much only two of those four will get reviewed if they skip this week. And my guess is that B.A.P would be in 1st because they are a day earlier than NU’EST and always win. BUT I think S&M might try to break the curse as long as they don’t hate NU’EST’s song/vid. SHINee maybe the following week? Idk

      4 years ago
      • oh my gosh, I completely forgot about B.A.P’s comeback (they have too many comebacks!! I adored 빗소리… but I am so nervous for what they will do next. ㅜㅜ and Teen Top? have they made a comeback announcement? I know it’s soon…
        Poor Nu’est. They literally have the worst luck. ):

        4 years ago
        • Ummm Teen Top I know nothing about but I was mentioning SHINee, B.A.P, and NU’EST all coming back at about same time and some1 told me TT was too.

          I’m hoping since B.A.P has had practically all of their videos reviewed (and won almost every EYKA nomination) that S&M will pass on them. I know it will maybe a bunch of Babies upset but from the looks of things they’ve been upset since Stop It and having stopped being upset since. NU’EST as long as they can get into the top 3 and their song/vid is decent I think has a chance to be chosen. SHINee I’m hoping has a great song and they’re my fav boy group so hopefully they can win too. (S&M also love them too so if they get in 1st I think they’ll be chosen.)
          But 1st week is being cut and most vids pretty much fade by 3rd week so it’ll be interesting to see what happens.

          4 years ago
        • I like some of NU’EST but I’m not really a fan either. (Honestly I just want Pledis to finally get some1 reviewed! >_<)
          Also I missed another group coming back in a couple days, Rainbow.

  52. Simon&Martina use TaeMAN’s photo on a laptop in the background. It’s Super Effective…at distracting Brooke.

    Ma boy was also not my favorite, glad I’m not the only one. Super loving this song though. I actually, uhm. Please dont tell Martina. .. I really like the couple turtlenecks >_<

    4 years ago
  53. I liked that song more than the video… Looks like they’re all in heat; I guess that’s what’s bound to happen when you have a contract that forbids you to date the opposite sex…

    Yeah, Intern made an appearance! (And Meemers too! ♥)

    I vote for “I Dare You” because the butt-rubbing seems less gratuitous and more “à propos”.

    BTW, Simon, you should wear more cute things; this bear hoodie really suits you!

    … wait… why did I just cheer for that? Oh well. Great KMM! I laughed so hard I cried~

  60. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA, oh heavens, that hair-scene just had me rolling on the floor with laughter…you are geniuses! & that bear-reference…I had originally thought about cows, but bears aren’t that farfetched either…*thumbs up*

  61. Leigh is not impressed by your oooh so nasty hair shaking (it’s Leigh, right?)

    4 years ago
  62. Ha! I about died laughing at the (extended) hair flip scene. Add that to the look on the intern’s face (meh, I can’t remember her name…sorry, intern) was hilarious. I about had a coronary trying not to laugh outloud, being at work and all that. And then…the bear in the woods….ahhhh….so funny. I’m glad the new sweatshirt already got some play.

    Honestly, I’ve only watched Sistar 19’s video once, even though I like the song on its own. The bum sliding was so freakin’ excessive that I even fast-forwarded through their stage on Inkigayo. Please girl kpop groups…have a little self respect. You’re beautiful and talented, and that’s what you wanna do with it? Meh.
