2NE1 – I Love You: Kpop Music Mondays

This almost got reviewed last week, because so many people voted for it almost instantly, but it just narrowly didn’t make it to first place. This week, though, it was head and shoulders above everyone else’s video. Assah! We get to review 2NE1’s “I Love You”. Check it out here if you haven’t already:

So, we talked about a bunch of stuff in the video, but there were a few things we cut out of our script for fear of making the video too long. Let’s talk about them here:

The outfits in this video. Remember when I ripped into f(x)’s wardrobe stylist for their horrible mismatched tacky designer clothing? This 2NE1 video is an example of how to do funky clothing correctly. They’re making use of interesting clothing, that – yes – you may not necessarily wear yourself (I’m looking at you CL with your leather hight waist underpants and fishnet stocking in the snow and on a train) but STILL they look really fabulous, and their clothing and accessories match! It’s like funky meets couture clothing, without looking cluttered. I know some people won’t like their outfits, and hey, we all have different opinions, but if I had to chose someone to dress me, i’d pick 2NE1’s stylist any day.

Also, Park Bom loves her knee. She hugs it a lot.

Another thing: is it just us or do 2NE1 have really simple song titles? I Love You, Hate You, It Hurts, Go Away. We could be reaching here, but there seems to be a pattern of simplicity here, like they’re interested in just hitting on those basic emotionally charged themes. We didn’t flesh this idea out much, but we had made a song for the jerky part just in case we did (because we like making cheesy covers of Kpop songs). Check it out here!

Lastly, if you’re digging the song as much as we are, pick it up over on iTunes. Oh! And if you’re here to see who won the ZE:A Limited Edition CDs from when we did our Interview with ZE:A, we announce them in the bloopers below! They’re right at the end of the bloopers, and we took screenshots of the winning answers for once, so…yeah! Check out if you won, or just watch it to see Simon be nastier than usual, YOU NASTY PEOPLE YOU!

  1. This is 2NE1’s first time employing “trot” singing technique in their song. You should mention it because many Koreans think this may be a game changer marrying trot music and electronic music. It is said that 2NE1 members were initially very reluctant to sing in trot style which is considered to belong to older generation. But Minzy who were raised by her grandmother who constantly sang trot songs liked it and persuaded other members. I just read this in a Korean newspaper, not sure if it is true.

  4. Bwahaha this morning (before I saw your video), I was attempting to sing CL’s lines in her sexy-catsuit part, and it came out as “bowl of jerky” so now that’s what I always say. You guys have Bull-O jerky, but that’s cool too.

  5. From the making the girls are filming three video in 3 languages. On top of the missed dead line promised. A couple of times. Guess it’s too rushed and they couldn’t deliver lol. I vote for 2ne1 because I still get goosebumps when I see a half naked shinee album

  7. A vote for Bull Jerky.

    Why? Because Bull Jerky has 82% fewer carbs and 46.666666666666666666666666666667% fewer calories then Soy un Doritos.

  12. Well lighthouse owners are meant to be the “loneliest people in the world” (I’m basing this off an episode of the Simpsons, so who knows how reliable that is), so being by a lighthouse kind of matches the loneliness theme… Kind of. As for being in a train…. Who knows?
    I liked your very very very unsubtle Psy promotion. Hopefully you’ll be doing Psy next week! Although I think Batoost comes out soon.

  19. Paparazzi’s lip sync was worse though… That one even made me sad…

  20. My thing about the bad dubbing/lip syncing…….Is that maybe they weren’t supposed to be full out singing the song in that setting…Like it’s supposed to be like they’re singing to themselves…Not sure if that really makes any sense, but it’s an idea. Either way I blame YG/people editing or filming and whatnot, and not 2ne1. Not because I’m biased..(okay maybe a little) but because you would think the people filming would notice…Like they would tell them to do it better…………………….But when it comes down to it, at least they sing well live. Maybe that’s why they can’t lip sync. xD

  23. I have to say that I was disappointed with this song. I felt like it built up to a point and was just about to go somewhere, and suddenly fell off. Really like it otherwise, and I’m not really a fan of their specific style and taste.
