Ladies and gentlemen, this is going to be our last Kpop Music Monday of 2011, and, luckily, this song is AWESOME. Holy snap. U-Kiss is really getting better and better, and lately it seems like we like every song more than the last. This is perhaps their most epic sounding song. “Neverland” sounded like a Kpop song, but this sounds like a Hollywood Summer Blockbuster song, no? Something about it sounds so epic, which brought about our only slight complaint about the video. The video’s not bad, but it’s not good enough for a song this good, know what I’m saying? We’re looking for a adrenaline filled Ukiss rushing to save the day kind of video, but we also know that many kpop bands have gone for the “movie like music videos” and unless the budget is there and the CGI is sound, it can go very very bad. So all in all, we still do like this music video.
If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video:
On that note, we’d like to say that – as you can clearly see – we really like this song, but it’s going to be our last Japanese or non-Korean song we’re going to review. We thought when Super Junior M’s Chinese song “Perfection” was voted in for Music Monday it was just a one time thing (but then we also did SHINee’s Japanese remake and now this UKISS song), but it seems with all the foreign language remakes coming out lately, we might start slipping into the “It’s a Kpop Artist But Not A Korean Song Music Mondays!” So in order to stop that from happening, we’re starting 2012 off with a new rule of focusing on Korean songs only!
But…that does mean…we’re taking out all the non-Korean songs from the How To Dance Kpop 2011, so we’ll be adding in an extra day of voting to let people up the votes on their other favourite songs.
Speaking of How to Dance Kpop 2011, you have little over 24 hours left to vote for the best Kpop dances of the year. We’re ending the voting on 11:59PM Tuesday, South Korean time. Vote vote vote!
Anyhow, since this song is so awesome, we’d recommend you support UKISS and click here to buy it! pick it up via YesAsia. Maybe you can give it to someone for Christmas!
Speaking of which, we’re not doing a Kpop Music Monday over the Christmas break this year. We’re spending the Christmas weekend being Christmasy, rather than working. Sorry everyone, we need to recharge for the New Year! We’ll make up for it with How to Dance Kpop 2011, which will come on the Friday. Woot woot!
And, lastly, here are this week’s bloopers. Simon just got a cold, Martina’s cold to be correct, which is why he was so lifeless during this video, but that didn’t stop him from being semi-funny…in a sad hamster kind of way.
