KpopCharts Update: After School vs Dal Shabet vs Lee Hyori
After School “First Love” – Vote for it Here!
Holy smokes, is this dance ever awesome! We haven’t seen lots of pole dancers before, but when two girls are on the pole at once, and they link legs and swirl down the pole: whoa! That’s really impressive!
Also, we read the headline about one of the members of After School getting her pelvis injured, and then I was going to make some inappropriate joke about hurting your pelvis on the pole, but then I read more about it and realized that it’s a serious injury, that she supposedly fell of stage? Whoa. That’s pretty intense.
Side note: I’m not sure if all pole dancing is like this, but shouldn’t the poles be attached to the ceiling? It looks so wobbly when they’re on it and definitely unsafe. Are those the standard poles for poledancing?
Dal Shabet “Be Ambitious” – Vote for it Here!
Damn you John Conti!
How…how big is John Conti? Is it big in the US? How have his shirts been in two Kpop videos? When I saw it the first time in 4Minute’s “What’s Your Name”, I thought it was just a shirt that they found at some random thrift store, and so it looked cool and appropriate for a Kpop video…somehow. But now it’s in two videos. Is this a trend? Who’s printing these shirts here? Did John Conti set up shop here in Korea? It…it doesn’t make any sense! Guise! What is this?
Side note: we just opened up our new T-Shirt store, if you haven’t seen it yet. We’ve got a few new designs you might find interesting. Check it out!
Lee Hyori “Going Crazy” – Vote for it Here!
Lee Hyori is so pretty! And she’s rather convincing as a dude, which makes me feel conflicted, like Lee Hyori must be less pretty as a result. No way a pretty girl can look like a dude like that, right? Must be something less pretty about the girl. Or no? I’m just confused. I do know, though, that we’re impressed with this video. Lee Hyori’s a pretty girl, and pretty girls in Kpop videos usually show off how pretty they are, with closeups of their faces and sexy dances and whatnot, but Lee Hyori is not going that route. She’s hiding how pretty she is, and dressing up like a dude, and making you think more about Kpop videos and how they’re made. No? Is it just us seeing it that way? I’m not sure. Alls I know is I’m impressed.
