Ready, Set, Go – Aziatix (MV)

Posting this because the artwork in the video was done beautifully!!

It’s Aziatix Ready, Set, Go.

Honestly I didn’t know about this song and I have not heard about it. As this was uploaded on youtube in July, I am guessing this video was for the Olympics. But I this year I was not too much interested with the Olympics — ergo I have never seen this song or heard this video. Posting it because I like the artwork on the video so much!

I haven’t been listening to Aziatix these days. I think too many Kpop songs and too little time. But I am very happy about this video. I wish I could do an artwork like this. The artwork tells a lot about unity. It must have been a painstaking task to do this artwork! A big applause to the one who made it and the one who had the concept for it! It worked for me!!

I’m not much of a fan for this Aziatix song, I think there are better songs. Although, I love the part where they inserted a modern version of Arirang. That’s the best part of the song. of the e best part But this video is one of the best ones they have made!

Enjoy the artwork!

Song Joong Ki — Nice Guy Pic Spam

I haven’t been paying attention to too much dramas recently (Reply 1997 ended and I haven’t been watching too much Kdrama). These days, I’m busy keeping up with all the English series new seasons and premiers.

But I do watch one drama because of Song Joongki!!!

Now this is not a recommendation post but rather a pic spam post. Though I like the drama’s story and Joongki devious character, I will be waiting for the drama to end before I can recommend it.

So here are the many faces of  Song Joongki in Nice Guy.

Innocent Joongki

Serious Joongki

Smirking Joongki

Sexy Back!

Smiling Joongki

Say Ahhh

Cute Joongki

Saranghae ❤ ❤ ❤

 

This guy is really really handsome! I was talking to a Korean friend yesterday and she said he is handsome beyond words. His skin is even better compared to all the other actresses in Korea! Omg!

I’m pretty impressed with him in Nice Guy! On top of that he is very very handsome!

Hope you like it!

I Will Show You 보여줄게 – Ailee (MV)

Yay! I’ve been waiting for this!! 🙂 I was really anticipating another song from Ailee and now she is back with her new track I Will Show You 보여줄게.

The Song

For this post, I’ll talk about the song first.

OMG!!! I love this girl and I love her songs. Actually I’ve been a fan since she was still doing her covers on youtube! This girl is very very talented. And actually I am not disappointed in the song. I don’t know why I am liking girl power songs. Like the title says, it’s a song about a girl telling the guy (who I assume broke up with her) I’ll show you I can’t live without you! Yay for girl power!

The thing I like about this song is the transition from the slow beat to a fast one. I don’t know why I like songs like these, maybe its these! But maybe it’s because of Davichi’s 8282! Ha.. But actually, to me this song doesn’t sound too much of a Korean pop song. I think it sounds more like Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive. It has a western touch to it. I think maybe it’s because those are the influences Ailee has with her music.

I have always liked Ailee’s voice and this song showcases her talents, that she can belt a ballad as well as do a fast song. She did prove that when she showed her versatility on Immortal Song 2. I just love this girl!! And I think she could make it big internationally especially because she can speak English.

The MV

When I saw the teaser, I was like OMG it’s G.O! Sorry Ailee, I love you but G.O caught my attention first! But this is Ailee’s song not MBLAQ so I’ll stop talking about G.O. He plays the love interest in the MV.

So the story of the MV is quite simple. It’s something you will most likely see for a song like this. No need to explain really! Haha.. But Ailee was really pretty  with the transformation! I’m so envious of how good she looks with that minidress!  This video is screaming how pretty this girl is!

But what’s up with the ending! I thought you were telling the guy you will show him! Why did you get back with him! Girl you need to keep your head high and not get back with him! ok ok so I am complaining. Oh well maybe her purpose for showing him was to win him back.. but but… ok i’ll stop.

Final Verdict: I love how Ailee showed her versatility in this song! I can’t wait for the broadcasts!

I Don’t Need A Man 남자 없이 잘 살아 – Miss A (MV)

Miss A has released the MV of their new song I Don’t Need A Man (남자 없이 잘 살아).

The Video

This is a very different video from Miss A. If you’ve seen all their past videos you would know what I am talking about. This video shows more of the hip hop side of Miss A.

The video is a bit confusing for me at first. I had to rewatch it to appreciate it. But I kind of like it. The best part for me was the beginning. I love that this video is all about a woman singing that she is independent. I feel like we need more of this in the Kpopland. Honestly, nowadays there are too many songs that are too cute for my  liking and it’s usually singing about getting a guy or breaking up with a guy. It’s too much!

The video does remind me a bit of Destiny’s Child’s Independent Women. But I think not plagiarizing way, because after all that video was a different one. I guess it’s just the message of the song! Haha.. The black, white and red colors in the song worked for me. But I’m not really fond of the costumes that they wore in this video. Maybe I am just used to seeing Miss A wearing something different. The dance is not as powerful as their old dances. I maybe it’s because the beat of the song is different and slower compared to their previous releases.

What I do love it how Miss A can change their concept and fit perfectly to the concepts of their song. They never had that difficulty I think. From Bad Girl Good Girl, Breathe, Goodbye Baby and Touch — all these songs have a different persona of each member. I kind of like this bit from Miss A. Their concepts are cool and not wacky or too over the top! In this video, it’s the hip-hop Miss A.. And I think I would have to get used of this new concept!

The Song

This is a surprise because this song sounds less of a pop song and more of a hip hop mixed with rnb track — very different from previous Miss A songs. It’s also slower compared to other Miss A songs. But what’s great about it is that it displays Miss A’s versatility with music. But as of writing, I’m still getting used to this new track. But it’s getting to me slowly.

I love Miss A MVs because they always have an English caption released with it. So it’s easy to understand and there is no need to wait for translations. I love the lyrics of the song! Like I said above, we need more of these kind of songs in Kpopland!!! I’m too tired of listening to girls catching a guy’s attention or crying of a broken heart! I love that it says I don’t need a man! Cheers for Miss A for releasing this song! I also love the bit where they say “jinja” and “cheongmal” in the chorus! Catchy!

What’s not to love about Min rapping in the song! I know Jia always does the rap parts, but I love it that Min is rapping in this song too! Sorry I have a bit of bias for her (can’t you tell?) but I think she’s very talented and I especially her bubbly personality!

Final Verdict: This is a new Miss A sound and I’m still getting used to it! But I do love the lyrics of the song! Hurray for Independent Women!!

I’ll Be The – Spica (MV)

I am a kid of the 1990s. I grew up adoring girl bands and boy bands — not the Asian ones though. I don’t know if you remember the Bewitched and S Club 7, but this song remind me so much of their songs back then!

It’s Spica‘s I’ll be there.

The MV

I have to admit, I was checking Spica out because I read an article that Junjin’s (Shinhwa) new girlfriend is from Spica. I was curious! Haha.. but she is pretty! Who is she? She’s the rapper in this song. She kind of reminds me of the younger Yoon Mirae (Tasha) with a mix of Park Shiyeon. But anyway, I’ll stop about it because this post is not about them 😛

I know of Spica because I kind of liked their debut song Russian Roulette (though I called it the “bang bang bang” song). I was intrigued by that song because it was different at that time. And now, I like Spica more because of this song. I think I will be watching out for them.

Except for the intro of the video and the cow, I like it. I think the introduction was a bit too long and the eerie sound didn’t fit such a happy song.  And what the heck was the cow doing there?? But you go girl for still rapping even with the cow at your back! I would go crazy if it was at my back! The video itself was simple and its kind of nostalgic to see a video like this. It reminds me of the videos of Western girl groups in past. It showed the playful side of the girls without being too cute. I think that’s why I am liking them. I don’t have anything against girl groups being cute and all but I think it’s too overused. I all for the concept of the video!

Another think I like about it is the simplicity of the dance. It’s so 1990! It reminds me of all those Spice Girl dances back then. Though there were some elements added in the dance that will let you know is 2012, but you can’t deny most of the simple movements were the dances kids of the 90s are all too familiar with! I like the circle dance thing the most!

The Song

Can I just say I love it?! This kind of song is not common as of the moment in Kpop (you would know what I mean if you’ve been listening to Kpop songs). When I first heard this song I felt like I was transported to the time I was 10! I could not stop listening to this song! And I don’t even mind the engrish parts because of the melody!

It was brave of them to release a song like this. This is not like all those mainstream Korean songs that are way way popular there. It’s also another reason why I like this song. Because it’s different. All the previous songs that they had were a bit mainstream and this is something fresh, but I’m afraid it would not be popular though.

These girls are also very talented! It’s nice to finally hear a song with very little autotune. Frankly, I think this is what Kpop needs more. Bring back all the songs with no autotune!! I personally like the voices of these girls compared to the ones who debuted with them. It’s a mixture of strong and sweet voices that make good melody. I do wish these girls would become really popular especially because they are very talented.

Final Verdict: This song reminds me of girl groups of my past so I like it. It’s not mainstream Kpop which is good! This group is talented and I’m going to watch out for more of them!
