Super Junior – Mr. Simple: Kpop Music Mondays

August 8, 2011


Share Post


Yes, yes you were SM. Shame on you for giving us the high expectations of a fresh and crazy upcoming Super Junior music video with Siwon in his green underpants. Do you realize how many hearts have been broken? How many daydreams have been shattered? What was the point of those terribly misleading teaser photos? We were sure this was going to be the Super Junior epic movie answer to TVXQ’s “Before You Go” but NO! NOTHING NEW! Were we the only ones disappointed? GIVE ME THE UNDERPANTS DANCE!–> screams Martina

Plus, right off the bat, we were like “OH NOES!!! when we first heard the song” Come on! It’s not easy for English speakers to overlook lines like this. It’s the first thing you hear in the song, bad Engrish. Come on, SM! You’re doing a lot to promote Kpop internationally, and we respect that, but for those people who aren’t diehard ELFs, and not into Kpop, and are trying to get their way into it, lines like this are a bit alienating. People will laugh right away, and you don’t want that. Not everyone will laugh, of course. Like we said, your fan base will support you no matter what, but newbies might not be as forgiving. Know what we’re saying? Just, really, hire an English speaker, for like, 20 bucks, to look over the lyrics. Some people will even do it for free! Hell, we would! BECAUSE WE NAUGHTY NAUGHTY!

But enough about that. It might have an Engrish verse to it, but it’s still a funky song. It was a bit abrasive for us at first. It seemed like the bridge came out of nowhere, rather than growing out of the song. Know what we’re saying? The singing’s fine for it and all, but it’s just the beat seemed to change frequently before you could grasp the song. But, now that we’ve listened to the song a bunch of times, it’s settled with us a lot more, and we’ve been singing the whole “BEE NEE NEE NEE NEE NEE NEENEE NEENEE” part a lot.

Also, we mentioned in the video how some people complained that there isn’t really much in this video, how it’s just a bunch of well-dressed guys dancing in a oddly-lit room, which is exactly what we said about the Super Junior M “Perfection” video a while ago. But, now that we think about it, these are really the only kind of Super Junior videos we’ve ever really seen from them. Weren’t Bonamana and Sorry Sorry the same? We know that Super Junior has other videos out, for sure, but we weren’t into Kpop enough back then to know of these videos. Seems like the best Super Junior videos, then, are just the “hey let’s dance in a room” videos, and if that’s their thing then, well, that’s their thing. It might not be a lot for us to talk about, but if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right?

To enter for your chance to win the new Super Junior “Mr. Simple” album, all you have to do is tell us which was your favourite of the teaser pictures for Mr. Simple. If you haven’t seen them up close, prepare thyself. Here it is:


Super Junior is really...colorful

Let us know which of these you liked the most and why. We’ll pick one winner from the answer that we like the most, either for its profundity or humour. Best of luck!

Also, we’ve been hearing people complain about how difficult it is to find Kpop CDs especially if you’re overseas, so we decided that we’re going to try to help in what little way we can by having more CD giveaways. You can always buy the album from YesAsia if you have a credit card – they’re good for shipping CDs internationally – but if you don’t do online shopping then you’re in a bit of a fix.

We buy the CDs ourselves and ship them out ourselves as well, so we can’t really be giving out hundreds of CDs at once, but we still want to thank you all for sticking with us and supporting us. Thanks guise!

And so, if you want to enter the contest, you can do so here as well. The contest is for people who have subscribed to our YouTube channel, so if you’re a subscriber make sure you leave your YouTube name with your comment here. Woot woot!

    I’m torn between Ryeowook’s teaser that can have a never ending supply of adjectives to describe it and Heechul’s teaser (and possibly Shindong… too many things come to mind).
    Anyways, I’ll go with Heechul’s teaser. Just stare at it: doesn’t it remind you of Johnny Depp in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?! The top hat (haha.. TOP hat..), the crazy colors and the weird floral tie? Isn’t it all so whimsical Willy Wonka like?!
    Here’s a picture to help you visualize: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/3684738272/The whole eye covering thing and staring is just wayyy too similar. Stare at it side by side..
    Oh! Why do I like it? Need i say? It’s Johnny Depp…No… don’t see it? :(. it’s probably just me…..

  2. Siwon is MINE. Hahahaha <3 BONERAMA. 

    im subscribing your YT page btw :))) @starzlem93:twitter  http://www.youtube.com/starzlem93

    I really loooove Siwon's teaser pic cause he's really handsome and hot. *biased* No seriously, it made me wanna run on our treadmill and go ab workout afterwards. He's just AWESOME. He looks like an evil villain too. I had a theory that the photographer was really in a hurry that he pulled Siwon on set before he dressed up. Thus the ubersexy picture!

  3. I kinda of liked B2ST’s better… Even if I am a crazy ELF…. 

    As for the best teaser photo… I’m going to say either Yesung or Ryeowook XD

    Yesung because he is uber sexy no matter what (and I LOVED his hair! SO FLUFFY!!!!!!!)

    And Ryeowook because… Well, every guy needs multicolored boas to carry around! …. Right? Plus…. THE BOAS ARE SUPER FLUFFY!!!

  7. While my favorite member’s photo was a disappointment (whoever styled Leeteuk makes me very sad), I’d have to say the best one is Shindong’s teaser. He is the only person that could make a blinged-out gun look BAMF!!

    Nothing else fits the concept of ubersexual more than the bed hair, the finger-biting, the eager, faraway look in his eyes, the oiled body that’s ready for… a game of soccer, on a very hot day, with a leather jacket in tow just in case it rains down on the ubersexual but very simply-dressed Mr. Simple Siwon. Plus that shining soccer ball he’s stepping on PWNS the cop hat, the feather boas, the fake gun, the top hat, and the blond god’s tiara. XD

  11. Simon and Martina, PLEASE stop apologizing! Whether it’s because of the ELFs who keep criticizing your review or the blackjacks who are just HATIN’ cause they didn’t get their video this week, teach them a lesson why shutting them up with the Super Junior move… what was it? Brush it off…. PSYCH, I’M GOING TO MURDER YOU. 

    Don’t let mean netizens bully you. Come on Simon, stand up to them… LIKE A MAN!
    I love your vids by the way!

    • I agree. I want 2ne1 vids as much as I want SuJu’s. And besides, I agree. The first time I heard the song, I was like, “What would Simon and Martina say with their Engrish?” Seriously. So I’ve been waiting for this. For other Blackjacks like me. Keep voting 2ne1. To the other ELF. All people have their own opinion. So keep the hate to yourself. or PEDOBEAR WILL COME AND GET YOU!

      • Awh, I thought their English was good. Teddy wrote the song and he grew up in America, so I’m pretty sure it was legit.. right?

  14. Siwon’s Teaser photo hands down… Come on the Man is more than half naked! What could be better than that right? Also, he lacks the atrocious colors and patters of the other members (sans heechul, hsi was actually pretty decent) But totally Choi, Siwon… lots of skin and undies, totally win.

  15. Definitely how I’ve been feeling about SM lately- cool video, lame song. It’s too bad really.

    You guys actually missed the best part of the video! right at the beginning,you see KyuHyun checking out this hot girl he sees walking by, then she turns around… and it’s a guy. Awkwaaaaaaard….

  16. I vote B2st for best dance, just because I can already do the Mr. Simple dance, but I still can’t quite get my feet to do Fiction!

  17. :D I wanna enter. Your comments are hilarious and awesome :) I really felt that this MV is a big letdown too, even with all the bias I have from being an ELF and all (it’s my only fandom that I actually identify with the name)
    My YT un is dontl1etom3
    I personally liked Fiction both for its song and MV, so I’ll vote for that over Mr. Simple even though I’m a diehard Suju fan.

  19. My favorite teaser was probably Ryeowook, not because it’s the best one (that would probably go to Siwon or Eunhyuk IMHO) or anything but because his outfit totally looks like a 90’s cycling gay pride outfit that fell into a bucket of Mcdonald’s french fries while performing at a Vegas revue.

  20. How do I choose?! I would say, my favorite teaser was Siwon only because I haven’t laughed that hard in a good, long time. Silly me thinking he would be wearing pants.

    My favorite “teaser” was Ryeowook, mainly because I feel that once he’s done with his 90’s jazzercise class he can use those lovely feather boas to help me dust my apartment. Or I’d even be okay with some sort of cleaning jazzercise mashup.

  25. slightly OT, but the get a white friend comment kind of rubbed me the wrong way because white people aren’t the only people fluent in english. there are plenty of korean americans who are fluent in english who writers could turn to if they wanted to.

    and lol at the end though. oh yg stans.

    but overall funny review.

    also why is it man apron? why can’t it just be called apron?

  26. I really [really] love Sungmin’s (guywearingamanapron’s) photo the BEST! At 1st glance his pic’s very appealing. His outfit is the closest any of the members got to “matching” [under this ubersexual concept] & the yellow [accents throughout his outfit] contrast beautifully w/ the sapphire pearl blue [background]. Upon closer look one realizes actually how much this photo TEASES. Sungmin displays perfectly smooth skin & his pose accentuates his handsome profile & beautiful sternocleidomastoid. [His dainty hand placement represents another contrast between his soft, adorable looks and the naughtiness of this photo.] Lastly…HE HAS A GUN. IN HIS PANTS. A teaser photo can’t get any better than this! ;D

    I would say Siwon’s teaser photo was the most unforgettable for me, not because he was mostly naked (well, okay, part of it was because of that), but because I couldn’t stop laughing at the lime green underpants. I’ve never actually laid eyes on underpants in that color ever since I threw out a pair that I bought for 75% off. (It felt like a good deal at the time, but now I know why no one bought them!)  I could never take myself seriously on the day that I wore them.

    And I vote B2ST for the dance. (Even though it’s obvious that SUJU will win the votes). :P

    Whom I like best? I’m fighting over HeeChul and Siwon. But Siwon’s sexy look got me. I can’t utter words to describe why. But, just look at the PACKAGE… I mean look at him head to wais… He’s trying to destroy my sanity. The abs and what-not. HAHAHA. Got me drooling and sleepless when it came out.

  33. oh man, i both appalled and in love with leeteuk’s (mostly appalled) because really dude, you’re almost 30 years old and you’re wearing fishnets, 3 pairs of boxers and a rainbow rope tube top? i mean… i think i might have tried that look when was 5 but… hahaha just had to give his out an honorable mention, but i believe my favorite outfit was siwon’s because well… there’s nothing like a gratuitous nekkid shisus abs photograph. he is CAPTAIN SHISUS UNDERPANTS complete with chocoabs and a disco ball to go with the limegreen bulge illuminators. ;-)

    At first i was kind of (really really) disappointed in this MV/song because it was just like the last 2, but like you said, it’s kind of their thing. I just hope they make a second movie like they did on bonamana with No Other… it’s their last album (probably ever), they should make at least one more MV, what else are they doing? come on SM wae u no give any love to your money makers hmm?

    The best teaser picture would definitely be Siwon!He has the green neon feel which brings a very very special feel to all of the ELF! It’s also unique cause Neon is always the new black! And also, he show’s his sexiness ONLY in all the teaser picture! :D

  37. Is there even a question of which is  the best Mr.Simple teaser photo?
    Siwon’s of course! I mean, it’s so simple, he’s hardly wearing anything (not that ANYONE is complaining)!

    Simon, no, I don’t want my man wearing pink leopard print (which made
    Yesung look like a watermelon, by the way), but I wouldn’t mind him
    wearing neon green underwear, if he has a body like Siwon! It’ll have to
    be in private, though, or he might get arrested for lewdness. “You
    naughty, naughty!” LOL!

  38. I love both groups, beast and suju,
    but even though I think the penguin dance is awesome,
    suju’s zombie dance is kinda better 2 me…

    Best picture? You would chose Kyuhyun’s one if only his not-so-ubersexual (as its concepts said supposedly but hey! Siwon’s naked footballer self doesn’t suit to that description either!) forest under his arms weren’t enough to make me go away. Oh, so my choice is Yesung. Yesung…hell yeah that crazy dork whose weirdness run out even of his ears… He looks simply good as that Mr Simple should despite of his metrosexual features. In Yesung case, the look doesn’t discourage but caught people’s attention. Why? The new face of turtle-maniac is teetering on the brink of trash and feeling for style. Pink panter with stylish hat seems to look really hot…Isn’t it surprising? Yeah, I’m surprised but in positive way that’s why even if Yesung isn’t my favourite member at all my vote is for him since it was like damn good eye-opener during those rainy days that every ELF was waiting for something worth spazzing around over and over again. Thank you! ;D
