f(x) “Electric Shock” – Vote for it here!
Wow! It’s been a while since we did the KpopCharts! Sorry we didn’t keep up to date while we were in Canada. Now, though, that we’re back in Korea, we’re gonna be back in the full swing of things. Woot woot!
Anyhow, on with the videos! Ok, we said in this video that we don’t want the unblock able ads getting in the way of you enjoying f(x)’s awesome video and song, but we didn’t say anything about the ads getting in the way of our DISCUSSING the video and song here, right? So, then – a question: has anyone actually used the app that SM is advertising? We haven’t tried it, but we’re hoping someone did and can tell us about it. Has the pleasure you derived from your usage of the app outweighed your annoyance of seeing the ad in the videos? Because, if it were to do so for me, then the app would have to be bloody magical, because I HATE THOSE ADS! YARRGGGHHHH!!! SM: how much have you been paid to put those ads in your videos? I would like to know the ad rates and then buy one of those ads myself. The ad would say “AIN’T THESE DAMN ADS ANNOYING?!” I’d probably also include a picture of Spudgy as well. NO! I wouldn’t. I’d resist the urge.
I just realized now that SM probably has an approval process for these ads, and doubt that my ad would meet its criteria. Shucks!
U-Kiss “Believe” – Vote for it here!
I feel like there’s so much we want to say about this video but we’re not gonna say it here, because it’s probably going to get reviewed for Music Mondays. Ah! But…it’s so…ripe for the picking! Ok, let’s mention things here that we won’t mention for Music Monday: ______ actually, everything I’m writing here I’m gonna include for Music Mondays. How about just a “hey! Here’s U-Kiss’s video! Vote for it or f(x) is gonna win because they’re catching up mighty fast, and we don’t want another Teen Top/EXO/Infinite moment on our hands” GO VOTE!
Boyfriend “Love Style” – Vote for it here!
Ah! We really should have copied the Info box for the video. In its current form, it’s a bit awkward, but makes sense. When it first came out, though, OH BOY WAS IT EVER WEIRD! They didn’t even spell Boyfriend’s name correctly at times, and misplaced the e and i. Yeah man. It was awesome.
Anyhow, we’re happy that this video doesn’t annoy us as much as Boyfriend’s other videos. Ooooh, they were so close to winning, and we were really worried that we’d get a bunch of people angry at us for saying not nice things about Boyfriend, but we lucked out as other bands won. Instead, I think we won the ire of Teen Top fans. Ha! Boyfriend’s “Love Style”
On another note: since we mentioned Boyfriend’s downtown hipster style, umm: your thoughts on their style? Can’t really say that I’m finding them the most fashionable fellows out there. Sure, it’s interesting, but not in a good way. I can’t really see anybody wanting to emulate this look. No?
