Sunny Hill – Grasshopper Song: Kpop Music Mondays

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 think this MV is really interesting to watch and the song is catchy.

  2. 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!

    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~

    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. :-)
