FT Island – Hello Hello: Kpop Music Mondays

June 7, 2011

Well this is something we’re totally not used to: this is Kpop, sure, but not the regular kind of Kpop we usually do. This involves people playing instruments, real instruments, and not fakely mashing them in an attempt to look as if they know what they’re doing, Bilasa style. FT Island’s “Hello Hello” is a rock song, played by a rock band, and almost has a trot-like feel to it. TVXQ’s “Keep Your Head Down” is probably the closest song we reviewed to a rock song, because of the guitar, but it was still a pop song through and through. This song, though, israther unorthodox for a Kpop song, and it’s a really welcome change from what we’re used to hearing.

We like the song. Yes, we like the song. But we did poke fun at the video. Doesn’t it always work out that way, anyways? We only review songs if we like them. Videos, though, don’t go through the same rigorous filtration process. This video wasn’t terrible, mind you. Just confusing. We even tried Googling people’s responses to the video in hopes of finding an answer that might be a decent explanation of what happened, and found nada. The best we could find was that it was filmed in Paju. Cool! There you’ll read the story behind the foreigners cast for the video.

And so, since we couldn’t find any decent answers to explain the video, we had to come up with our own: our guess is that he foresees the fire happening, and foresees himself running into the building as well and saving everybody. But that’s just an explanation for the overarching video plot. An explanation for whatever the hell is happening in that building is beyond us:

FT Island Hello Hello Macro

Not at all weird...

There are too many questions to ask here. Really guys…wtf? If you have answers to these questions, any one of them, please do share. We tried guessing and just gave up.

Anyhow, if you’re a fan of F.T. Island as Martina clearly is, we’d recommend getting their new album, which ships internationally. Huzzah!

  5. Well actually……CN BLUE can also play instruments too, right? Jonghyun and Shinwa(the maknae I think) play guitar(Acoustic and Bass), Minhyuk is on the drums, and Yonghwa is the vocals and guitar too.

  18. i guess since you already looked for explanations i don’t think my interpretation will help since you’ve probably already read sth like this and just found it didn’t make sense to you… i’ll still coment ad spam XD
    i don’t really think hongki foresees anything… to me it seems like the end is a flashback where he walks by… and later he passes that building again to see the fire and runs in to rescue his friends but instead faints and joins a.. uuuuhm different dimension/world/dream/WHATEVER where he… sings… in.. a band… O_o aaanyhow…
    his friends manage to escape by themselves but he dies and turns into a ghost at the end when all the people are like in this huge cluster hugging and he stands apart…
    yea but of course i can’t answer your questions… in fact i’d give you my head if ANYONE would find logical explenations >_<

  30. such a tough decision who should invade my home, since I love both bands equally but i’m going to have to go with “Foto” Island but I still love CN Blue as much and wouldn’t mind if they did invade my home!<33 kekeke ^^

  31. Yeah! FT ISL- Er… FOTO ISLAND!!!! Lol at all the questions. I was even confused at this! Love FTI, but seriously? I think he took a nap because he fainted because of the smoke? Or he just ate lunch and was drowzy. /fail
    Anywayy, I vote for FT ISLAND to be my house intruders! (5 members of FTI > 4 CNBLUE members who are stealthy ninjas that can’t be seen/heard)
    Edit: I have the same FTI wallpaper as you guys on my MacBook!
