It’s Music Monday time again! Last week we reviewed 2NE1 Can’t Nobody and put it up against F(x)’s Nu Abo. This week we review TOP’s “Turn it Up.” WARNING: Martina is incredibly biased! Now, even though the song isn’t really the newest song out there, Martina is loves just about anything Big Bang and TOP related, so we knew – even before we started Kpop Music Mondays – that we would have to review this song one of these days. Guess that day is today!

Something interesting to note about the song. There’s a bit of a controversy lately over MC Mong and his alleged military duty skipping. Supposedly he pulled out some perfectly healthy teeth in order to be deemed unfit for the military. How does this relate to this song? There’s one part of the video in which TOP says something along the lines of “Hey Monkey, I know what you did” and then pulls out a tooth in the video. MC Mong is sometimes referred to as a monkey. Now is that a completely weird and fluke incidence or what? What makes this even weirder is that this video came out long before the allegations went public.

Anyhow, back to our review, this week we pit TOP video against Lee Hyori’s “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and asks you which is sexy sexy super sexy sexier. We’re asking for objectivity in your votes, of course!

Thanks to [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations!
