Wonder Girls – Be My Baby: Kpop Music Mondays
THIS IS JYP!
HAY I’M JYP AND I PRODUCED THIS SONG! JAAAAAYYYYYY WHYYYYYYY PEEEEEEEE!
Ok JYP. Enough already. We’re not suggesting that you’re ruining your songs by saying your name at the beginning of them, but we are suggesting that this kinda needs to stop. It’s not really adding anything to the songs. If you didn’t include your name in it, doubt anybody would be like “hey, you know, this was a great song, but I just couldn’t get into it because I didn’t have the producer whisper his name at the beginning of the song.” Bah! We know that it’s not for the benefit of the song that you’re including your name though. Yes, branding is important, we know, we know, for business, yada yada. For music, though…helllllll it gets annoying. JAY WHY PEE!
Apart from that tiny complaint, and our general complaint about Kpop songs always seeming to throw in rap breakdowns (seriously guise: not everyone should rap), this song was just about pretty damned perfect. Seriously. It’s so fun and spunky! Check it out if you haven’t already:
Now, we’d like to draw your attention back to Bubble Pop. See, that song had a similar kind of peppy spunky happy fun feel to it. It was a great song (apart from the likewise odd genre mashing dub step breakdown), but the video for it was just sooooo off the mark. Hyuna just squeezed her boobs together, shook her ass, and rubbed the inside of her thighs. Wonder Girls: thank you for not going that route with this video. Thank you for making a fun video to match your song, for being fun and confident in your video rather than relying on sexuality for your video. Really. We’re so happy with this, and really think it’s one of the best videos we’ve seen all year.
On a side note: JYP!
Anyhow, since we’re such huge fans of the new Wondergirls song, we decided to do a giveaway. Woot woot! We’re giving away TWO copies of the new Wondergirls album. All you gotta do is tell us what is your favourite part of the video and why. You can leave your answers in this post as well, but PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR YOUTUBE USERNAME IN YOUR ANSWER. We’re picking from our YouTube subscribers, of course, so we gotta make sure you’re subscribed to our channel. Woot! We’ll pick two winners and mail out your CDs next week.
If you don’t happen to be one of the winners, you can either buy the album on iTunes, or, if you prefer a physical album, then you can buy it from YesAsia by clicking the picture below.
As for this week’s Bloopers, you’ll see that the elevator scene was quite difficult to film, considering the fact that people were trying to get on it. Oops! Oh, and the people you saw with us in the elevator were our good friends Brian and Whitney from Ansan Answers. We know Bucheon; they know Ansan. Check them out!
OH! And people have been asking for our songs. Here are the two F-art B Sides. FYI: Simon’s got the awesomest singing voice ever.
