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!

  10. Also this song at first made me think I was in Italy, then eastern Europe, then I just decided that the song didn’t know what it was doing and it just became some kind of Cirque du Soleil song.

    Also, I want Changmin to invade my home and wake me up with his lights and stuff… I’d be like “yay best morning ever!!” and my boyfriend would be super pissed off but that’s ok becuse CHANGMINNNN!!! Seriously… Changmin…

  11. I love love love FT Island! I live in America and have been listening to them for years now, i was under the impression that they were not very popular in Korea but this video kind of proves me wrong!

    • Actually,, I think they really are recently underrated in Korea. It’s all thanks to hardworking fellow Primadonnas who manage to make Simon and Martina review this MV ^^

  21. C.N. BLUE!!!! Or I have to say cono blue??? kekeke…

    I think Hongki was trying to save the other 4 members, but then he became unconscious because of the smoke. While fainting, he was dreaming about singing and playing band. And then he died. The other 4 are saved.
    And then we got flashback to the time before the accident happen. Hongki saw the smoke but he ignored it. After he knew that the smoke bacame fire, he felt guilty for ignoring not telling others about the smoke. Thus explain his urge to save the day.

    Also, Itaewon is a bit creepy. Just sayin.

    • OK… maybe I was was just distracted by the terrible accent to realize there was no leaderhosen…

  27. I was pretty sure hong ki died in the fire thus.. sleeping + seeing the light + not coming out with the other 4 in the end.. :D thx for the review tho. i am surprised the  english is 5 out of 5.. i thought u guys would pick on hongki’s korean accent in saying “helllo”

  40. looool guys ur awesome XDDD
    but psychic ? i think Hongki burn that building himself that’s why he rushed in to check if everyone is dead and his plan worked or not. That’s why he took a nap cuz everything is ok ^__^ but he saw them dancing & cuz he didn’t want them to discover him he played along XD and at the end he was standing alone watching with sorrow cuz everyone is safe !! 
    yup, Hongki is a bad boy ^___^ XD
