This week we review 2PM’s new music video “I’ll Be Back.” You know, the first thing we thought about when we saw this video was the Terminator saying “I’ll Be Back.” Then we saw that one of the members of 2PM is wearing a metal hand. Then the final dance sequence of the video starts off with the Terminator music. Are these just crazy coincidences? Well, turns out that it isn’t, as 2PM just said in a video that they meant to be influenced by it. It’s still kinda odd, though, how 2PM’s song is about love, while the Terminator is about ass-kicking robots. I guess they’re similar, kinda?
Anyhow, this video was a lot more difficult to make than the other Kpop videos, because of the — err — preparations that Simon had to go through for it. Last week’s U-Kiss in Man Bras, this week’s 2PM in Guyliner. Who knows what’s going to happen next week? It’s also a fluke that we’ve been doing so many 2PM videos, what with them being in the showdown last week and in our 2PM interview a little while back. Ah well. Big thanks also to our friend Jessica who did the make up for this video. Seriously, Simon sat for like 30 minutes gettign the makeup done. Hell! And he’s got a new found sympathy for girls who wear makeup: that stuff is not easy to wash off!
For this week’s showdown we pit 2PM vs Ga In to see who wears eyeliner better. By the way, Ga In’s video is completely, totally awesome, and if you haven’t seen it yet be sure to check it out. It’s one of our favorite songs of the year. Great song, great acting, great story, great eyeliner, great everything. Check it out!
One last thing: Spudgy cant’ do the dance for this week, because – even though the running man is easy to do – Spudgy’s bad hips and knees aren’t built for it, and we didn’t want to hurt him. So hopefully next week there’ll be an easier dance for Spudgy. Poor guy!
