Cos Kpop gods and pimps are swaggering through!!!!! Looks like some people ain’t playin’ in 2011 and i Just. Effin’. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!
What do I mean??? Today and yesterday alone new vids from Rain’s Princes: Mblaq, the desperately anticipated TVXQ and the Flyest Playboys in Seoul: GD&TOP. I tell you my browser is swaying under the weight of all the youtube and kpop news pages I have open! Lol! I just had to come out of hiatus again and share, share, share!!!!
Well. here are the vids and my opinions wether you like em or not! heh!
MBLAQ – CRY
These boys have always been cute to me because I like Rain and they are so obviously his boys. They sing like him, dance like him and one of them even looks like him (*____*)! This video only further pushes that impression for me. The song is sexy and in a classic R&B style that I like but the video……
I really preferred “Y” I think. This one was just made me wish they were doing something a little fresher. And the wardrobe! I know as a GD fan I shouldn’t really be qualified to talk about what other people wear but I believe that GD can get away with ANYTHING. It’s one of his particular gifts. It’s not a gift that a lot of people have. Seriously the boys of Mblaq are cute enough so I believe they could simplify. With them, less would be sooooooooooo much more >:)
But overall, a nice effort. It’s just that the bar keeps rising so they really have to push more to distinguish them selves.
TVXQ – KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN
I’m not a Cassie but I do like the men of TVXQ! Who wouldn’t, right? I was delighted to see that HoMin was out with a new video (I actually havn’t seen JYJ’s yet! Shame! Shame!) and felt quite rewarded when I watched it!
The song is epic!!! Epic!!! EPIC!!! Reminds me of everything I love about Kpop! And they look GREAT!!! The choreography is on point too! Really powerful and at one point it really reminded me of Black Greek Stepping which is something I really like!!! The wardrobe was a little woah! At a point they seemed to be wearing something made from ugly furniture with hair on the back. The miracle is that their smexiness shone through!^^
Changmin really blossomed in this video even though he had fewer parts than Yunho. His voice just AMAZED me! And from the comments section on the YouTube page I think many Cassie’s felt their biases shifting towards this manly macknae by the end of the video!
Just great! Can’t wait to see Live performances. I bet they’ll kill it!
WARNING: EVERYTHING FROM HERE ONWARDS IS SERIOUSLY BIASED.
GD&TOP – KNOCK OUT
I’m honestly speechless about this video.
I really am literally knocked out. I’ve been rewatching it all day and I still can’t find the words to express how much I love it. I can just say that I believe that YG has swaggered its way out of the KPop box because this is just GOOD POP, PERIOD!
I already liked the song from when they performed it at the MNet Award thing because of the catchy chorus and because GD’s funny, crazy wave dance. I got the album in itunes and I was loving it on there along with High High, Oh Yeah, Obsession, Don’t Leave, What Do You Want (LOVE THIS ONE!!! GD doing Vintage Funk with a hint of his inner Punk!!!<3<3<3)
The video is beyond any expectation I could have had for it! It’s the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party meets the Playboy Mansion and GD and TOP showcase a crazy, fun kind of cool that just looks so easy on them! It’s fresh! It’s different! And it’s very, very them!!!!
There are so many bits I love that it doesn’t even make sense!!! The bubble wrap addiction! The insane couture and hair (honestly only THEY can get away with it!), Gaho all grown up! The butt chairs? The Tank? The list is just endless!!! Ican’t even hope to photo spazz it all!!!! And I cannot watch this video without grinning crazily then pressing replay at the end! Even now I want to go back to it! Waaaaaahhhhh!!!! It really is an obsession like the chorus says!!!
And let me also just take the opportunity to say this bcos i dunno if I have yet.
Over this past year I have come to seriously respect G-Dragon as an entertainer. The music he writes and produces, his consistently break through style, his amazing skills as a dancer and choreographer (I LOVE how he moves!!!!! this part of him is so under rated because he underplays it so much but as a lover of dancing, I can’t help but notice it!) his effectiveness as a leader, his professionalism and ability to keep pushing through hard times, all at such a young age have earned him my sincere admiration. He works so unbelievably hard and has been doing so for so long. If I could take just a little of his work ethic I can only imagine what I could achieve.
I now believe he is one of the most exciting acts currently active on the world’s Pop music scene and I know he’s only going to get better!
Er – I guess my GD bias was showing there. Well, TOP is also hella sexy, slayin’ the ladies with those glances and that knowing smirk! And I extra appreciate the effort he put into dancing, even pulling out a commendable Harlem shake!!! I once said that if I had GD I would probably cheat on him with TOP and also vice versa. This remains true! Lol!
Ah – look at that!
This post has become a thesis!!!! Must stop now!
