The Boys – So Nyeo Shi Dae (Korean and English versions)

For all the SONES, I know they have been waiting quite sometime for their idols to make a come back.. And they just did with their new song The Boys.. and it’s released in both English and Korean versions!

Korean Version

English Versionย 

Hmmm… I can’t say that I like the song so much. Though it’s a pretty good track and definitely different from what they have done in the past, I think this sounded like a cheerleading song. Yes the verses sounded really good but I’m not digging the chorus too much. It’s like me singing “I said burn it’s cold in here it must be Toros in the atmosphere”.. oops Bring it on nostalgia.. ย But I do say I like the way they say bring the boys out!

But hooray for their effort of making the English version of this song, that means their spreading their wings and trying a new market. The English version of the song, their English that is, is understandable, except maybe for a few awkward words, but you can make out what they were singing!

As for the video, well the first part, the song they used is just like a recycle of the Keep Your Head Down intro, except for minor changes. I mean it’s not the girls fault, but the record company could have done something special for them. It did suit their concept of the video, but its been used before, and it hasn’t been a year since that tune was used, so why use it again??

But but but.. I love their concept for this song. It’s definitely a bolder and sexier Girl’s Generation. I mean we’ve seen them sexy before, but this concept gives off a very strong aura of the girls. I love their outfits. It had a theme but it’s outfit was had its own identity. I love their new dance, it’s not cutesy at all. I’m glad they realize that they should reinvent themselves and give a stronger image.. It’s new but absolutely perfect for the girls who are no longer in their teens. Oh and the best transformation goes to Sunny! She’s shed off that cute image! I love the way they did her hair! It’s short! Yehey!! And boy does she look good. I had to do a double take just to make sure it was her. Kudos to her for being so brave in her new do!

But I’m hoping this release would be a good one for them! Though I think they would not have any problem with all the Sones from all over the worls supporting them!!!

Visual Dreams (Intel Collaboration Song) – SNSD (MV)

Didn’t have the time to post too much on my blog. In the last few days have been a whirlwind and I suddenly became busy. But tonight, though I need to sleep early, I couldn’t help but post some things on my blog! Oh writing this makes me want to wish it was the weekend!!!

Anyway.. I am posting Visual Dream (Intel Collaboration Song). This was sang by SNSD / Girls Generation.

Except for the metallic outfits I like the video! The video screams… this is Seohyun and Sunny’s song! ahaha hold your horses.. when I say it’s their song, it’s because I think they owned the song. In my opinion I think their voices fits the song best. The song was kind of a new side to SNSD. Though they did ok with the Robotic Dance… however, they had to do it since they are promoting Core Processors… and the dance fits the concept of the video and the song.. it’s just a little awkward to see the girls do it… but hey.. their good at what they do and they pulled it off smoothly.

Hurrah for the girls! ^_^

Hoot – So Nyeo Shi Dae (Girl’s Generation)

It’s a bit late to be doing this post, but I had to post it.

For as few weeks now, the girls, I mean Girl’s Generation, have been doing there thing on music shows. They are currently in the middle of promoting their new Korean single Hoot. Though they were quite busy in Japan, the girls surprised their fans by releasing a new Korean mini album, one that fans did not anticipate. And I must say I was shocked to know they were promoting a new single even when they were busy in Japan.

Hoot according to what I’ve read is not an English word (like most of us thought), but instead its a Korean word, and you use it when you sniff or snort a laughter because someone said something you don’t believe or something absurd. The song sounds like one from an Austin Power movie, and the video looked like that too (their costumes did too!). It gives you that Charlie’s Angels feel mixed with a little of Austin Powers. The songs beat is catchy and easy to sing a long. I liked how it sounded the first time I heard it! And the music video features Super Junior’s Siwon. kk will not be putting details into it as it may be biased!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

However, I do not like the wigs they used in the video!!! It’s too obvious that it’s fake. Maybe it was there to give a feel of the 60’s/70’s theme that the song has, but they could have done better (disclaimer: ok so don’t bash me for this comment, it’s just 2 cents ^_^)

Not long ago, SM entertainment has also released the dance video of the song. Well I think it’s nice that they did, for once again, the girls have made us want to learn the dance.

I guess the arrow dance is kinda new. It’s another one of those dances that stick. And I think it’s pretty easy to catch on.

Over all, to me this song nailed it — as a good idol song that is! I can feel them having another set of triple crowns up their sleeves ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh! My Goddess – Trax

I have always been a fan of rock my music. Because of that I am really ecstatic about when I heard this song… it’s not only my kind of rock song but is also a Korean song!

What I am talking about is the new track from Trax ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s called Oh! My Goddess. Trax is SM Entertainment’s rock band. And their new video features Seohyun as the Goddess (pretty kid!)

Though the song has received some good and bad reviews, to me it sounds good. It does sound different from the usual Korean rock songs. It has a western sound to it though.

Since I haven’t posted some lyrics on my blog, I am putting up the lyrics here..

Oh! My Goddess (Romanization)

So one hadeon, two my girl, three nuni bushin Lorellai, oh
Hey lady, four my love, five obun man manna jullae

Oh! My Goddess (Translation)

So, the one I desired for
Two, my girl
Three, the dazzling Lorelei oh!
Hey lady, four my love
Five, will you see me for five minutes?

The redundant boring break-up, scars, tears, all stop
I will go anywhere if you want me to
Uh! I want you, I want you, I wanna wanna have you

The eyes, the eyes, that gets me to look only at you
My heart, my heart is already filled by you
Accept it, my heartโ€™s impatiently waiting baby
The boy’s eyes, eyes that only looks at you
The boy who has stole her heart, heart
Oh, don’t tire me out no more baby
Oh! My Goddess!

I keep waiting, I keep calling
Why isnโ€™t there any answer?
I said Iโ€™d give everything but itโ€™s not enough, girl.

Your phone calls that I waited, the answer, all stop
Even the heart that would make my heart race, stop
Even the clock and time patiently waits for you

The eyes, the eyes, that gets me to look only at you
My heart, my heart is already filled by you
Accept it, my heartโ€™s impatiently waiting baby
The boy’s eyes, eyes that only looks at you
The boy who has stole her heart, heart
Oh, don’t tire me out no more baby
Oh! My Goddess!

(Whoah-whoah, please come to me)
(Whoah-whoah, oh baby girl)

Baby,baby, youโ€™ve found out about my heart
I love you, love you, youโ€™ve already stole my heart
I will embrace you in my arms forever, oh!
Baby, baby, Iโ€™m your boy who has everything
Iโ€™m your boy who will protect you from everything
Only one, I’ll only look at you
Love you Venus
Oh! My Goddess!

Falling Slowly Versions

I have written sometime last year on this blog that I liked a song called Falling Slowly from the movie Once. Inspired by this and because I just saw a clip of Yong Hwa (CN Blue) and Seo Hyun (SNSD) perform it on We Got Married, ย I decided to feature the different covers of this song done by Kpop idols…

Yes, this song has been sung a lot of times and I think it’s very popular in Korea.. But though a lot of K-artists have been doing their version of the song, I’m still not tired of hearing it! I get all giddy when I hear the first few chords of the song.

So who do you think did the best cover??

Yong Hwa and Seo Hyun (Sweet Potato Couple)

Jo Kwon and Ga In (they sing during the 1:21 mark)

Jinwoon ย and Jo Kwon

Kim Hyun Joong (singing to Hwang Bo.. aw I miss this We Got Married Couple – Lettuce Couple!)

Sungmin and Sunny

And just a plus.. he is not a Korean idol but this kid is korean and he can play the guitar!!! He is Sungha Jung..ย  check out his youtube page for more of his videos…

So which one do you like?
