BILASA B1A4 “Tried To Walk” – Vote for it Here!
Return of the kitty conquerors! We knew this video was out because Dr.Meemersworth set up a little white flag in his bed to let us know he was indeed conquered. He even ordered a very small EYK t-shirt that fits him perfectly…that really should have been our first guess, so I guess we discovered his bias group, it’s BILASA! So I’m afraid to say too much about this video because we have competition between Boyfriend and B1A4 and we’re honestly unsure of who will win, so let’s just leave this video at this: this is a very pretty video with a lovely set and I got to see BILASA wondering in locations outside of a box, so that makes us happy. No comment on the ridiculous over use of turtlenecks. I’m going to have to start a new organization to keep turtlenecks from being used in music videos.
Dal Shabet “Have, Don’t Have” (Don’t Have Version) – Vote for it Here!
Wow, what a fantastic song! Now I know a lot of people have been comparing this to T-ara and saying that they’re copying T-ara’s sound, but T-ara is simply doing disco inspired music, and that sound doesn’t belong to a single group. It’s the same complaint that arises when any girl group besides 2NE1 tries to be punky and wear leather and studs, everyone is like, “Oh they’re copying 2NE1”. It’s more like they’re copying old British Punk which was around WAY before 2NE1, but yes 2NE1 was really the first to tap INTO it. The same could be said about T-ara, they were pumping out mega awesome songs that channeled disco feels, but it doesn’t belong to them either. Anyhoo, the point is, we love this song and yes it has a disco feel. Now they did release two versions of the video, the “Have” version being the main one and while I like that video, the “Don’t Have” version is something we rarely get to see in the world of Kpop. A kpop group interacting with the outside world! A kpop group acting silly in a different way than usual! A kpop group wearing their full kpop gear but being totally ignored by their audience! It’s quirky and fun, and I totally like it better than their original video. Well, check them both out and let me know which one you like better.
Son Dambi “Dripping Tears” – Vote for it Here!
Okay, so I know Simon spoke about this video, but I totally wrote about it and forced him to speak it. Hahaha, I just wanted to see him talk about the fashion that he never notices or cares about. But back to the video, the costumes for the backup dancers were SO creepy and cool! That houndstooth-patterned-kinky-sofa-one-piece was so bizarre, yet I couldn’t look away! It felt like something I would see in a Ga-in or Brown Eyed Girls music video. But as a whole, I liked the song and video but it didn’t really grab me as much as her older stuff did. I found myself watching it and enjoying it, but I wasn’t totally enraptured. Maybe I felt like it was straddling the line between artsy and a kpop video but it didn’t really fit in either category so it was a bit confusing. I will say this much, we were both born in the same year and DAMN THAT GIRL LOOKS GREAT!!!!
