Kpop Music Mondays: T-ara “Why Are You Being Like This?”

For this week’s edition of Kpop Music Monday’s we’re reviewing T-ara’s “Why Are You Being Like This” and trying to figure out if they meant to sound like creepy stalkers or not.

Come on! Listen to the song again and tell me that the song isn’t a bit freaky. Maybe they’re trying to get the guy to partake in Public Displays of Affection, but the first time we heard it the song sounded like a Stalker’s Guide to Writing Freaky Fanmail. And, let’s be honest, the only reason a lot of people probably don’t interpret it that way is because T-ara is smoking hot, and smoking hot people can’t be crazy stalkers, obviously! Buuuut keep in mind the other songs they made. “I Go Crazy Because of You” and now this? See where we’re going here?

Otherwise, we’re totally digging this song, Simon more so than Martina (probably because it’s a girl band). It’s got a great 80’s feel to it, and we’ve really been really into 80’s throwback music lately (like Twin Shadow and Cut Copy, for examples of other non k-pop music we listen to), so this song caught our attention immediately. The video even has an 80’s house party movie scene feel to it. Sweet! Martina was bored by the video, because the girls obsess in front of their mirrors, but Simon still dug it. Doesn’t it have a cool hazy glow to the whole thing?

Finally, as always, big thanks to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations! Shazam! Also, we’ve got some extra footage from this video going up on our Facebook Fan Page tomorrow, so make sure to check it out :D One more thing: don’t forget to vote for who we should dance to in our upcoming Kpop 2010 video. Voting ends in a couple of weeks :D

  3. I love that you always bring back older jokes x)
    And by the way, the "ayyy guuuuuurl"-move reminds me of a guy fishing:P Well, kinda..
    Or using a rotary whisk. That might explain the apron in the MV. And what could be more attractive than a guy KNOWING how to cook (in nothing more than an apron… eew x))? :D

    • There's a funky clothing shop in Hongdae, close to the place that serves drinks in a ziplock bag. The woman speaks English fluently and her clothes are awesome :D

  13. This was funny, specially when Simon did the Ayy girl rolling the window, and the ring din din ding dong copyright part.

  14. okay this totally was the bestest of the bestest yet guys!(I know not a real word) <3 okay so my vote goes to 2 pm again and Again for the showdown. it had a more defined stalking plot in the song than the Kara song, I was totally confused with Kara's song I had to see it twice! So was the guy of interest the DJ? the cute blazer guy? who was it????

    • I think you mean T-ara, not Kara, but, I have to say, why are there two bands with almost identical names? There's also Brown Eyed Girls and Browneyed Soul. Hell! 2AM and 2PM! Are different names really so difficult to come up with?!?

      • Oh no my bad! I just had that convo with my sister she is also confused! Yes T-ara I meant. Why are they trying to confuse the fans overseas?

      • L!T

        and I have no idea what t-ara stands for…

        • I think it's supposed to be like a tiara: a princess' crown. No? That's my best guess. Oh! I also forgot that there's a Miss A and a Miss S in Korea.

  15. hahaha nice :D I think 2PM would be creepier! ;) I like this one hahaha

    I suggest SM THE BALLAD's song "Miss you" :D I really like it and it's new too! :D

  16. 2PM are definitely the creepier stalkers (Though, I wouldn't mind so much if it were 2PM, it's not stalking if I'm okay with it, right?)
    These videos always make my week, so, uhm, thanks! :)

  17. This is definitelt the thing that makes me want to do anything on Mondays XD

    One day I’ll fall of the chair, you are fantastic XD (I mean, I’ll fall because of laughter [unless I’ll feel dizzy again, nevermind])

    And I’m for 2PM ^^

  18. I cracked up when you guys turned the song into a creepy cheesy horror movie lol. As for the creepiest I finally get to vote since I've seen both mv's lol. I vote for 2pm. It's definitely a lot more creepy lyric wise and the mv the guy starts out waiting outside the house as she was out with another guy and watches her flirt around with him in her house. Then the guys break into her house and we see Nickhun watching her sleep and all that. So yeah at least the T-ara girls didn't go break into the guys house and all that even if the song lyrics seem a bit stalkerish and obsessive they kept the stalking at a public place with other people around and they just basically watched from afar. At least so far….

  20. hmmm i would have to go with 2pm, they were in a private setting and you could see him looking at her (not a mirror) through a window while she was sleeping. that would freak me out.

  21. You were right about stalking.:DWhen I first watched the video I almost didn't see the guy.
    Creepiest was 2PM he was stalking her while she was sleeping and they were alone, the girls were stalking but demanding attention too.:)
    P.S.Videos getting better and better.
