Kpop Music Mondays: Seungri “VVIP”

Big Bang two weeks in a row? You betcha! Last week we did GD&TOP’s Knock Out, and a few weeks before that we did High High. This week for Kpop Music Mondays we review Seungri’s “VVIP” and try to deal with the weird, weird interpretation of Alice in Wonderland.

Let’s start off by saying that YG always has cool videos. This is no exception. Great fashion, weird but cool looking models, bizarre concept. Bam. It’s got it all. Problem is, the concept has a bit of an odd loophole to it that we couldn’t help but feel a bit uncomfortable with. In Alice in Wonderland, Alice has that potion and cake that make her grow big or small in size. In this video, though, when Alice drinks the potion she grows up, like an adult. But, still, that’s just a body change. Alice is still a minor! And then Seungri leans in for a kiss? PEDOBEAR! And, again – we mentioned this in the video – Seungri’s not the pedobear; it’s just the character he plays in the video :D

Martina was quite surprised to see that Seungri looks older now (but not fakely older through a weird potion, mind you). He doesn’t look like the younger kid brother member of Big Bang, and probably will be able now to take part in their beer ads since he’s an adult now. Good for him! Martina had some fun doodling his pictures. Here are a couple of them:

Seungri Before:

Big Bang Beer

Seungri After:

Big Bang Beer 2

At least, we think he’s old enough to drink legally in Korea now. What’s the legal drinking age here?

Another thing: the “Make it Rain” with credit cards made us laugh our asses off. That is just not impressive. Lots of people have lots of credit cards (with lots of debt on them as well), so when Seungri says he’s got lots of money, throwing cards up in the air just ain’t the way to prove it. For that matter, since we’re talking about clubs, we don’t really get the whole idea of a VVIP. I thought VIP was enough. Why add another V to it? Very Very Important Person? Doesn’t that make a regular VIP feel like a bum? And what of the non VIPs? What’s to stop them from making VVVIP? I think they need a new letter. Like SIP (Super Important Person) or STRIP (Super Totally Rawesome Important Person). That’d give a new meaning to a strip club.

Thanks to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for continuing to translate all of our videos into Korean. They’ve also started translating some of our blog posts as well, which is totally awesome. Check out our Korean Like a Pro 2 post and check out the Korean below the post. Wow! Also, if you’re a fan of Seungri’s VVIP, or his other song, What Can I Do, you can buy the album and have it shipped to you by clicking the link below. Huzzah!

  1. hahaha LOL at VVVIP.. the V in VVIP stands for his nickname V, Seungri is victory in Korean right? and his co-artists in YGE calls him V that is why. According to him it stands for V’s VIP ;not very very important person.. haha!

  2. it’s cuz YG got Teddy as one of their song writer/producers. he was a member of an old school group called 1TYM.. and he’s from the states. i think he’s still american citizen. (some celebrities give up their american citizenship to get korean citizenship)

  6. Your English is great! I understood you perfectly! Maybe the problem is with your browser? If you are using Internet Explorer 6 sometimes the site doesn't work. I'd recommend trying Firefox, maybe?

  7. Baby Goodnight is a must:
    1) tons of TOP candy for Martina <3
    2) the style is so far from their other mv's (storymode!) :D
    3) GD reading a book for Simon!

  11. Woke up early this morning to see if my husband's video was going to be on Music Mondays and you guys TOTALLY MADE MY DAY :D
    I actually wanted to see if you guys would comment on the 5 Seungris posing as the members of Big Bang at around :33 of the music video ): but it's okay… I actually prefer "What Can I Do?" as a song, but "VVIP" as a music video, just because Baby Ri looks amazing in his 12384891 different outfits xD
    I liked ZEA's fight scene. HAHAA I loved BTD but Seungri's is more entertaining because who else would fight with a top hat? Only Lee Seunghyun <3
    Keep doing what you guys do!

    • We wanted to comment on them, but we had already talked a lot about the other things in the video. Sometimes videos are just goldmines with tons of things to talk about, and we just don't have enough time to mention them all. This was one of em :D

  12. Seeing as it was an ACTUAL fight scene, I'd have to go with Infinite on this one.

    Infinite's BFD had the better fight and song. Totally agree with Simon about the creep factor, could only watch it once. Really liked his What Can I Do video and song though. Requesting this for next week.

  17. While I like the creativeness of Seungri's video, I am going to have to vote for Infinite because the choreography was more intense. I don't dislike either video though.

  21. I actually liked the throwing card scene because it looked pretty haha xD

  22. I enjoyed this video! Haha at the potion part. Cheers for Simon in his zombie shirt and the SungKyunkwan Scandal chibi wallpaper on the laptop :D I liked the Big Bang parody part a lot too~

    *Pirouette*

    Voting for Infinite, the fight is more intense there and looks much better than Seungri's.

  23. I go for infinitee~~~ :3 <3

  24. Haha! Love your Music Mondays, they make my day! :D
    Only thing was I was surprised at the lack of mention of Seungri's impersonation of his Big Bang hyungs around 0:34 but it was still hilarious (:
    As for the showdown this week, I think I'm going to have to go with Infinite's endless fight scene in Before The Dawn, because even though it was the main focus of the entire video and I was a little more than slightly confused by the whole concept of the MV, I thought their fighting seemed pretty impressive. (:

  25. Hahahaha!~ ROFL watching Martina transformed into Simon. And i thought i was the only one felt weird about the throwing credit cards scene. Hahaha!~

    Anywaym about the showdown, as much as i love maknae Seungri, i think Inifinite has what it takes to fight handsome-ly. Hehehe!~

  26. Total no-brainer on the showdown: Infinite. No question whatsoever. Anyone who votes for Seungri is totally biased. "Before the Dawn" is epic and the fight scenes are amazing. (and sad that you didn't review that video this week, but I figured what with Martina's fangirly love for Big Bang it'd probably be Seungri so I'm not surprised =P)

    I think the girl groups are getting a tad neglected lately. Maybe you should review one of the recent girl group releases. Like Secret's "Shy Boy". It's not brand new, but it's new enough to still be performed on all the music shows. Just a thought.

  27. So today im like ITS MONDAY!!! and my aunt goes "I know Pretty little lairs comes on today."
    So i look at her and i say: WHAT?! NO! Today means a new K-pop monday. BUT GET THIS i sit i watch half the video and my aunt gets mad at me for watching without her because she was making a sandwich. =/

    OMG SIMON RUN!!!!! lol I loved that whole "garret wire routine" Martina pulls my aunt couldn't stop laughing.

    I thought the "make it rain" part in the video was cute but it really isnt as cool as picking up a $100 anyway Infinite gets my vote this week.

  28. This was one epic music monday! I was laughing my butt off at potion, raunchy thrusting and PIROUETTE! xD Seungri won, but Infite was a good second :)

    MARTINA! You need to review GD&TOP Baby Goodnight that's going to be released in 12 1/2 hours! 6PM Korean Time :D I hope they make mv for Don't Go Home too, since the performance was so cute and cuddly <3<3<3

  29. lol he's been able to drink for like a year–the age is 20 in Korean age/19 American, and he just turned 20 in American age in December. (i know this cuz i turn 20 tomorrow….hehe)

    anyway, definitely vote for Seungri–Infinite's was, like you said, endless. it got old. meh.

  30. The best part of the video, was when Seungri dressed up as all 5 members of Big Bang. I had to do a double take before I realized it was Seungri. Plus, his impersonation of them was spot on. xD
