*trumpets blare* IT’S THE KPOP CHART UPDATE *da da da daaa daaaa daaaaaaaa* This week we look at new songs by Girl’s Day, Supernova, and Sunny Hill. We were actually a bit worried this week because we normally have the update ready for Friday but it seemed like nothing was coming out except for Girl’s Day, but then we had a whole slew of songs hit us at the end of the week. YAY!

1) Girl’s Day “Oh! My God!” Vote for it here!

 

Girl’s Day, oh Girl’s Day, Y U SO SILLY!? “OH! MY GOD!” is their newest single and it’s difficult to explain our feelings for this music video because part of us is like, this is totally ridiculously AWESOME but then the other half is like, why are you doing this!? *sobs* It’s always nice to see a female kpop band do something really silly and just have fun, but we’re very torn about this video because it was really really extreme. By extreme we mean, SUPER KOREAN OVERREACTIONS!!! All k-drama watchers know exactly what I mean, you muster up all the emotion you should be putting into your eyes (or should be experiencing alone in your head) and then you express that through body movements and facial expressions that are passable for people tripping out on hallucinatory drugs. It’s also difficult to deal with the super cute overreacting when I found out that the ages of Girl’s Day range from 25, 22, 19, 18, and 17. I can’t wait to repeat this comment about awkward names for a band when Teen Top are in the 20’s. I dunno. Maybe it’s the sound effects that irk me, but it’s so obviously supposed to be fun and jokey that I can’t really hate it!!! It’s like a B1A4 video that’s so over-the-top you know it’s just in good fun. Well check it out and let us know if you’re cringing or laughing or cringe-laughing…craughing, if you will.

2) SunnyHill “Prince and Princess Charming” Vote for it Here!

 

Sunny Hill, you crazy band you! I’m just getting to know you this year and I like what I see. I’m totally girl crushing over Kota: her style is amazing and I love her deep voice. She has practically no makeup on in this video yet she looks so good. A little bit of overreacting when it comes to lip syncing, but it’s a small complaint. This video for Princess and Prince Charming is crazy and quirky but it does have a message. I don’t want to talk too much about it here just in case they get voted in for Music Monday, but it’s basically about going against the typical things Korean culture tells you to want and aim for, for example: being with a tall guy, or getting good grades to become a doctor/lawyer and so on. Just check out the video with that idea in mind if it seems confusing to you.

3) Supernova “Stupid Love” Vote for it Here!

 

Supernova has returned to Korea with “Stupid Love” after spending a lot of time in Japan. I actually had to look that up online because I was like, who is Supernova? Turns out they’ve been around since 2007 but we’ve just never heard of them or heard anything from them because it was all in Japan because they have 13 Japanese singles and 4 albums vs 1 Korean album. Okay, maybe that explains the feel of this song because it’s very club clubby with it’s heavy EEES EEES EEES beats and that’s totally a Japanese pop thing. I’m looking at you AKB48 super-club-EE-EE-EE-EE-EE-beat music. Anyhoo, I think the girl in this video is from Davichi (someone confirm that for me) but her role is totally ridiculous. Hey can you wear this really small dress, drive a car, and then stand around looking annoyed? THE PLOT THICKENS! No actually, it doesn’t. This feels like a ploy to get Davichi fans to watch the Supernova video, like when Eric from Shinhwa appeared in the Supa Luv music video because his fellow band mate is the manager of Teen Top. Oh, we’re on to you guise. SIMON AND MARTINA KPOP POLICE FOR LIFE!

Ps-> when I heard the name of this song I was totally like, “I got that STUPID lu-u-u-u-uv, that STUPID Luuuuuv.”

  1. Oh! my god Girl’s day Please! :) is very fun :) please ^^

  2. Is it just me, or Oh! My God reminds me of Brown Eyed Girls’ How Come? .-. 

    And Sunny Hill didn’t add anymore members, Misung was already there since Midnight Circus days.

  3. actually simon i checked the lyrics for super nova and it say checkin’ not jacket :P

  4. lol wut? guise… i pretty sure theres no new member is sunny hill, theyve always had 4 girls… right? kota misung seungah jubi…. RIGHT?????? but i totally share ur love 4 kota and would love 2 c a review of this song! 

  5. I voted for Sunny Hill. Liked them since the Grasshopper Song. I would vote for Girls Day just for you guise since you pleaded. I watch the video i literally OH MY GOD…followed by WTF. The music is reminisce of 90’s techno and the video is sprinkle with cheesy silliness. I know it meant to be silly but but…it silly annoying. So for your sake Simon & Martina i shall vote for this song so i could hear you deep thought about it and hopefully on Monday i will piss in my pants from laughter. 

    By the way Supernova  at the beginning of the song seems promising but then when i read the translation of the lyrics i just stop half way and shook my head. “I just checked once (Checkin, checkin), Because i Like you so much (Checkin, checkin) ooh… my fave part “i was very careful that no one notice” Urgghh…if my Boyfriend gave this line to justify his behavior for stalking me around i would have dumped him on the spot. Two words…TRUST ISSUE.

  6. Seriously? You don’t think it sounds like “jacket”? We listened to it a few times, and that’s what it sounds like. Being “famous” has nothing to do with how our ears work, nor does being in Korea have any relevance to talking about how a song sounds. It would sound the same if we were in Canada or France or Japan.

    Frankly, a lot of what we’re saying is just a joke, and it’s meant to be for entertainment purposes. When we’re serious, you’ll know we’re serious (i.e. check out our review of Teen Top’s “No More Perfume”)

    :D

    • haha, I know it sounds like Jacket, just stating that the video you yourself posted, has subtitles that say checkin’, and I didn’t mean you hear it differently due to your location, I meant that you have an abundance of resources, due to the country you are in, to perfect your videos so there are no flaws… but, as i stated in another post down there somewhere, I wasn’t attempting to flame you, you do a great justice to the awareness of Korea and it’s culture, I was particularly happy the day you added Indie to your videos, which you should totally play 루네 lune, or 허클베리 핀 huckleberry finn for, AMAZING bands, fun fact, the keyboardist of huckle is lune. Anyway… I’m not saying NO OPINIONS! I’m far from an opinion nazi… the comment I made actually wasnt pertaining to this video you made, it was to one awhile ago where you said “INCONCEIVABLE” about having an opinion.  I just think two people from western culture who are OBVIOUSLY famous in an eastern country (having banners about you and being on TV) should be a little more careful with the opinions you share, as you are in a country which is already sceptical of westerners (even if not as much as it used to be).

      Sorry if you took it the wrong way~ but as you say, we all have opinions.

    • I totally heard “Jacket” too! Just ignore those fan girls :)

  7. Oh hey S&M what’s supposed to be the SunnyHill video in the description is actually the Girl’s Day video again.
    Just lettin’ ya’ll know. 

  8. I completely agree about Kota; she is absolutely gorgeous and she has what I think is the best style in all the female kpop idols out there.

  9. Im not a big fan of Girls Day their music irks me out and im not into that overly-cute, bubbly music concept thing… i just cant. Especially when i know that theyre not even singing with their real voices in this song. Their pitch is so high and forced just so that it can sound cute… im just not having it. 

    Supernova, i love them and im so glad theyre back. Love the song. Not so fond of the video -.-

    Sunny Hill, NAILED IT!!!!!! just like they always do. The song is amazing and the video, even though at first glance it doesnt look like a trypical Sunny Hill video the symbolism and theme is all their using subtle imagery and of course i love them for that. I’ve loved them since they featured in Narsha’s “Mama Mia” and Janghyun is like a freaking prodigy with all of his massive talents. People always are like “i didnt know he existed” or “hes not much of a member” or “He’s the leader?” but Janghyun does more for Sunny Hill then other leaders do for their groups just because he isnt constantly in the lime light doesnt mean he does any less. In fact hes the creative master mind behind pretty much all of their hits, concepts, videos, and so on. I love this beautiful Co-ed group (still a Co-ed group to me even whiles he’s in the military) because they have depth in their music and its overall eccentricness? is that even a word? well, its a word now. Anyways i hope they get voted on before that next huge ending of April beginning of May wave of comebacks begins. 

  10. Girls’ Day Video = Sims K-Pop edition?

  11. Girl’s Day isn’t really such an awkward name. Think of all the “girls” and “boys” that are even older. The Wonder Girls, Girl’s Generation, B2ST (Boys to search for top/ boys of the east standing tall), Most of the Brown Eyed Girls are already in their 30’s!

  12. Uh… Sunny Hill always had 4 girls and a guy since Midnight Circus. There’s no new member.

  13. So what’s it going to take for you guys to review SHE! HER! HER! ?? XD

  14. OH MY GOD’s high pitched dubbing was soo…. odd. i mean the whole video was strange but the dubbing was just.. weirding me out haha.

    i would LOVE to see you two review this one

  15. Oh my all three videos are chalk full of Kpop wonderfulness that warrants being reviewed. When voting for KPM I of course tend to vote for my favorite bands but many times I pick the videos that seem like you guys would have a hilarious time reviewing. Those videos full of wonderfulness that your head just wants to explode. 

  16. I know what I will be voting for for Music Mondays. I definitely get what you, S&M, mean when the Girl’s Day video can be compared to a J-pop video. Completely epic. Really it is hard to put into a cohesive sentence even to describe the wonderful yet slightly disturbing video. I’d love to see your views on this. =)
    …Blows your mind.

  17. Yes, that’s Kang Min Kyung from Davichi in Supernova’s MV. Girl’s Day MV is so quirky, lol!

  18. Love Sunny Hill since their featuring on Mamma Mia’s Narsha :3
    Really like Princess and Prince Charming, that song is catchy ! and Kota is wonderfully c-c-c-crazy~~ :p As you guess, I’m voting for Sunny Hill for Kpop Music Mondays !!! :D

  19. there was no new member added to sunny hill 
    its still 4 girls and has been since midnight circus

  20. The girl in Supernova’s video could have been put there just as eye candy, plain and simple.

  21. at last Girl’s Day is here! hahahah XD

  22. the first thing that came to my mind after hearing Oh My God was Brother Louie by Modern Talking~ and it’s not something I’d be proud of if I were them ^^’

  23. I don’t know much about Supernova either, except for their past collaboration with T-ara. Together they released two versions of the song “Time to Love”, and I really liked both of them. You should check those out.

  24. Wish you had waited to put J.Y.P’s new mv here too :/ Probably won’t get too many votes but it’s still a really good song ^w^

  25. just as a thought – could these kchart updates, kcrunch and kindie playlist things not just be one continuous video with each MV linked? the playlist mode thing is a bit annoying.
