Super Junior is back on the top of our KpopCharts, but just baaaaarely, with “Spy.” Haven’t seen it yet? Check it out here:
So, a few things we didn’t mention in our review: for starters, congrats to Nu’est, not for getting second place, but for beating Super Junior up until the last minute when a final push got them ahead. Seriously: Super Junior’s video has millions of views; Nu’est’s video has less views than an Eat Your Kimchi video (at the moment). It’s not as popular a video as Super Junior’s, but it has a really strong fan base.
Another thing this can suggest, though, is not that Super Junior fans are struggling against the strength of Nu’est fans, but that Super Junior fans just didn’t want to vote this video in as much as usual. Seriously: Super Junior nearly crashes our server most of the time. This time: barely a blip. Every other video usually burns in flames and cowers in terror. This time: Super Junior’s video almost got beat out. Fans have the potential to vote as strongly as usual, but this time they just didn’t want to.
Sure, it could be that we’ve deeply offended a lot of ELFs, and so they’re steering away from our site (which, I wouldn’t get: Sexy, Free, and Single was one of our favorite Music Mondays EVER!), or it could mean that ELFs just don’t like this video as much. I think the latter’s the case. We’ve read lots of comments from annoyed fans. This video is just like every other Super Junior video ever:
I found the rooms especially ridiculous in this case. Hey! Super Junior: correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the song about finding and catching a girl? You know what might help you out: getting the hell out of those flashy boxes of yours. I guarantee you, she’s not there, because nobody of the opposite sex is ever in your flashy boxes with you EVER. Stop dancing around with each other. Synchronized dancing with your bros won’t find her either.
And, as always, SMs obnoxious unblockable ads keep on popping up just to piss you off. Yes, ladies and gentlemen: EverySing on THE iTunes. EverySing on THE Google Play? Seriously, SM? THE ITUNES? The Google Play? For THE 100th time, stop being THE Cheap and THE LAZY and get yourself THE English speaker to check over your THE ads next time. That’s just sloppy.
But, apart from our typical gripes against SM for their redundant Super Junior videos, this song is quite awesome! The beat of the chorus is SOOO GOOD! We like it so much and have been singing it so much that we went out and bought an extra copy of the CD to give away to you guise, because we want to share the love. YEAH! Want to win the CD? Here’s what you gotta do:
1) Make sure you’re subscribed to us. Not sure if you are? Click here!
2) Let us know in the comments what you think Super Junior’s secret mission is.
**if you’re leaving your answer here, rather than in the comments on our YouTube video, leave your username in the comment as well, so we can make sure you’re subscribed!**
If you’re not hopeful of winning, and just want the CD right away, you can pick it up on either iTunes or YesAsia. And, as always, we got bloopers. Since our skit was so long, we had lots of things go wrong in the filming process :D
