This week we’re reviewing a video that we’re really surprised made it to the top of the list. Great job Sunny Hill fans for voting in Sunny Hill’s “The Grasshopper Song” which we love! If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out here:

 

To begin with, wow! We’re really happy to finally be reviewing Sunny Hill. We spoke about them before in our K Crunch, but that was only in passing. We thought that they weren’t really popular enough to get voted in. Boy were we wrong! Sure, it wasn’t like a Big Bang overload crashing our site, but Sunny Hill still raced to the top of our Kpop Charts. Awesome!

Your Degree is Useless

Running a video site kinda makes me feel this way...

We’re happy that we get to review this, not only because it’s a cool sounding song, but it’s deep. And the video’s deep. And, really, we don’t get afforded many opportunities to talk about songs that have a deep message. Yay! Talking about this song and video made us feel as if our English degrees aren’t useless! Great success! And, come on, how often can we make a dirty sounding joke out of a literary device term?! NEVER! Ohhhhh yeah! Not that English degrees are useless, of course. It helped us become who we are and yada yada yada, but boyyyy would I have loved to have taken some courses in university about web development or video editing. But that’s another story.

I guess one of the main reasons we feel like we really like this song and video is because we – the two of us here – kinda feel like grasshoppers. We’re not working for a big company, we’re not working salary jobs and working for promotions or anything like that. Our only job is this blog. We’re not hoarding up as much sugar as a worker ant, but we’re doing something that’s making us happy, at least. And we’re not bohemian hippies as well! We’re kinda hipstery dorks, but at least we’re not airy fairy!

We’re lucky enough to be able to do what we love doing. We don’t know many people who can say the same thing, unfortunately, and so we feel like this song and video especially is relevant to our lives. Or maybe we read our own lives into the video too much instead? We’re not sure. Long story short, we like this song, and we’re not hippies.

So, yeah, we definitely recommend picking up the Sunny Hill Album, if you can’t tell! We like this song a lot, and we definitely support this group and their message :D

And, on a side note, some people might be confused as to how this beat out Teen Top’s “Crazy”, which has more votes, shares, and comments. We’re not going to answer this question here, but we’ve explained the ranking algorithm a bit more in our Tumblr post, in case you’re wondering.

Lastly, don’t forget to check out the Bloopers. Martina…is a dirty switch girl. Anyone read that manga?

    I Love SunnyHill, they are absolutely wonderful!!! I think all of their videos abide by their lyrics! and their songs are always so interesting and deep, and also, shocking for a korean entertainer to be saying (I think..), like epik high and their BA styles, but they got in lots of trouble.. :O

    Great fun!

    G-Drangon!!!!!! Yes I love his songs so I’ll vote for for: G-Dragon butterfly

  6. I love the positive review you guys had about this music video! It’s really meaningful~ I love my Literature classes, so when the music video was first released, I kept pointing out symbolism and analogies and metaphors ^.^ The music video teaches a very valuable life lesson: Sure, it’s great to be a hard worker and gain many achievements from doing so, but it’s better to enjoy life  and live a little :) Sunny Hill’s music videos are always so meaningful and have very deep messages in them; “Midnight Circus” and “Pray” had meaningful messages too~ I can’t wait for more music videos from this group~

  7. I’m going to be a grasshopper from now on 

  8. G-Dragon’s Butterfly has convinced me he’s the most talented kid in Kpop. Brilliant… I can’t even…

  9. Sunny Hill – The Grasshopper Song has my vote :D

  10. Vivian Nguyen

    GDragon

    Hahah, this video is about Sunny Hill, but all I see are comments about B.A.P.
    Don’t get me wrong, I love them too, but, shouldn’t we be paying attention to the matter at hand?
    Thus, the title of the video “SUNNY HILL GRASSHOPPER SONG”
    :)

  16. Gdragon Butterfly!

    I hope you guys will do the new band B.A.P Warrior!  I totally love them, my first kpop band that I’ll know from beginning c:

    I watch your videos every week and I like your comments of Korean songs.
    But in this video, you gave 4th grade out of 5 to Sunny Hill’s Grasshopper Song because of their poor pronunciation of the ‘R’ sound.

    In Korea, ‘링가링’ which pronunciated [ling ga ling] in English is one of the Korean onomatopoeia.
    So it’s different from ‘ring-a-ring’ in English.
    That means, you should not see this word as English. Therefore this word is not in the range of your English usage grading of Korean songs.

    Thank you for making funny videos every week and also thank you for reading my comment.

    I’m voting for Sunny Hill’s Grasshopper song for the showdown. :) Like Martina, I thought the stick out bums were adorable!

    Nice catch how the ant’s bicycle light is brightest! I didn’t notice that.

  23. I love GD and LOVE the MV for butterfly, but if we are talking levels of insectness I must vote for Sunny Hill.

    G dragon ftw BUTTERFLY!!!

  25. rachel clark

    umm..g-dragon=mindboggled

    vote Sunny Hill

  26. My computer flipped out and shut all the videos down when Simon said “onomatopoeia” LOLZ

  27. I don’t know why SunnyHill used english spellings for Ring-ga Ring ga Ring.
    They got the motive of the lyric from one of Korean folk song “둥글게 둥글게.”
    In 둥글게 둥글게 song, there is line 링가링가링가링.
    So I don’t see they’re english words. They should get 5 out of 5 for the english part! LOL

    • Yeah, we thought so too, at first.  But when we saw their live performances with the captions, as well as the lyrics that they put in the info box, we thought that they were trying to say Ring a Ring a Ring instead.

  28. I have to say Sunny Hill.

  29. Vote for Sunny Hill! I really like the video and the meaning of the song.

  30. you guys are amazing! love this song!!! awesome review ^-^

  31. You two must have been some pretty awesome teachers. Anyone who can think to transform a backwards dragon costume and some black construction paper cut-outs into a pretty legit-looking grasshopper is chock-full of creativity. I just needed to point that out. As a fellow teacher, I respect that. And I bet your students miss you ruuull bad. :-)

  32. Sunny Hill i really liked the song and video <3

    Simon & Martina ~ When you left Canada, did you exchange your currency into Korean Won before or after leaving Canada? Which do you think is better?
