This week we review the music video for F.Cuz “Wanna Be Your Love” and try to figure out what in the world the wardrobe coordinator was thinking, because, seriously now, something went wrong with their outfits. Something went reaaaaaaly wrong.
Now, we got a lot of requests for F.Cuz’s “Midnight Sun,” and as soon as this video came out we got a lot of requests for it as well. Now, I’m not sure what the deal is with Kpop Boy Bands constantly switching their tones. When we reviewed SHINee’s “Hello” we mentioned how different it was from “Lucifer”, how in the latter they were very badass, and in the former they got all cutesy-wootsey. B2ST did it as well with “Soom” and “Beautiful”. In both SHINee’s and B2ST’s cutey videos, though, there was a bit of a story to the video, rather than them just being cutesy. For F.Cuz’s Cutesy video, though, there’s absolutely nothing else to the video. They just dance around in a room and try to be cute. Nothing else. No giving a girl you have a crush on a present, no breaking your arm while breakdancing. Nothing. The video’s really boring as a result, really boring, and just seems so rushed and unthought-out as a result.
What redeems this video from being terribly boring is the amazingness of their clothes. They’re amazingly awful. Sure, but that’s not something to write home about. But, my God, read what their clothes say! Here they are, being all cute with each other, touching and hugging each other and telling a girl that they want to be more than just friends, and right there, right in the middle of the one guy’s shirt, it says “FUCK ME BLIND.” Seriously!!! Kinda takes away from the whole confession vibe of the video. Who picked out those clothes for them? Again, more proof that the Kpop World needs to hire people who speak English.
Another thing we hinted at but didn’t really mention explicitly in the our video: don’t you think the girl they want to confess to is gonna get mixed signals? I mean, telling a girl that you want to be her lover, while pretending to kiss your guy friends and snuggling up into their arms…I don’t think that’s the message you want to give your potential girlfriend. That relationship’s doomed. Ah well. That totally wouldn’t fly for a video in North America, as well. I mean, could you imagine Jay-Z and Kanye spending a whole video hugging each other? I don’t think so.
Anyhow, enough of that. Thanks to everyone who participated in our T-ara’s “Yayaya” CD Giveaway contest. We’ve picked the winners and will announce them tomorrow on our Facebook page. Huzzah! If you didn’t win the CD, you can still buy it, if you like, through the link below. Also, as always, thanks to JB and Annie from [ë‹‰ì‘¤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations! Yesterday we gave them a 15 minute video to translate, and they gave it to us by the morning. How freaking awesome of them!
