Super Junior M – Perfection: Kpop Music Mondays

This week we review Super Junior M’s “Perfection” for Kpop Music Mondays. What’s up with their hats?

Ok, before we begin, I’m worried that Super Junior fans might get a little upset. Our review isn’t really glowing. I mean, we like the song a lot. It’s a really catchy song, and we’ve been singing it a lot lately. It’s just that the video is underwhelming. See, our experience of Super Junior is primarily with “Sorry, Sorry”, and “Bonamana”. In both videos, they had an awesome dance that really stood out. This video, though, doesn’t really have a bombastically awesome dance. They’re dancing well throughout the whole video, but there’s no one move that will be remembered as the dance of the year. And so, since there isn’t really anything else in the video apart from dancing and a few funny hats, we’re not really impressed by the video. Yeah. The song is great; the video – not so much.

We also didn’t feel too great about the English in Super Junior M’s “Perfection.” From what we’ve heard Henry lived in Canada for a long time, so we’re not knocking his English, because it sounds perfect. The pronunciation is great, and the grammar is perfectly fine. So it’s not a technical matter that bothers us about the English. It’s just that the songwriter made the English rap just sooooooo cheesy! Uhhh! It felt like something you’d see in a high school video targeted to 10 year olds, or like what your teacher says when they’re trying to prove that they’re still cool. See, I’d rather have just a few phrases of English sprinkled throughout the song rather than an awkward rap that takes itself a bit too seriously. Usually, we can say that the use of English is cute in Kpop song, but since the English in this song is so well done, we’re judging it as we would judge that of fluent speakers, because they sound fluent, which is why we feel so icky about the mashup of cool English phrases.

So that’s it for now. Thanks go out again to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for all the Korean subtitles. Yeah! And lastly, like we said, the song’s great – even if we don’t like the video – so if you’re interested in picking up the Super Junior M album you can do so by clicking on the banner below. Sweet! International shipping!

  2. Where does SM find these rooms?  Is there some sort of alternate universe with hundreds of these strange looking caves complete with strobe lights and alienesque props?…

  7. F.Cuz most definitely….at least Super Junior M only passed around the "prostitute hat". F.Cuz on the other hand made a Fur Hat Parade of Silliness. But seriously though who comes up with these concepts…a naked mole rat with fur envy? LOL

  13. LOL!!! such a great video!!! it's hilarious!!! i totally agree with what you said.
    I'm a really big fan of rock music too! So I like bands like C.N.BLUE and F.T.Island.
    C.N.BLUE's gonna come back next week with First Step, surely it's gonna be a good song to comment on 'cause it's got loads of English in it.
    Hope you guys could do it, pleeeease. :D
    And yeah I'd vote for F.Cuz for their funny hats~

  14. so heres a thought. but for music mondays i think its great that u do some currently newly released songs but olders videos that i think were very well done. for example — most of the big bang videos ( haru haru was so sad, or taeyang naman barabwa and wedding dress) that tell good stories. i think your music mondays for those videos would be very funny. and i know martina wouldnt mind : ) sorry simon.
