Finally the video for Spy by Super Junior has been released.. I know I posted the live performance before, but like I said I will posting my comment about this entry.
It’s once again another basic video that SM has been doing a lot of times now! The boys dancing in a room. Except for some parts where there’s a girl doing a sexy wave. It’s not that I am complaining but it’s getting a bit boring.. It’s just the same video concept. Them dancing in a room — they’ve used it over and over again.. the only thing that changes is the dance and the background! I’d love to see them do a video like they did with It’s You and No Other! And come on, there are lots of concepts you can play with with the them of the song.. You know James Bond right.. maybe you could have incorporated that in the concept. There were some hints of 007 concepts but they only used the common ones! They could have made more! Whoever is doing those concepts for the videos should use more of their imagination.. please do better!!!
Anyway, do like their clothes in this video. Apart from all of them looking good in suits, it fits the 007 persona which I assume they are having for this song. The best thing about the video is the dance! I love how simple it is (except the part where Donghae jumps) — but the choreography is quite elaborate, like where they are staying. It made video this video a pleasant experience 🙂
I know some people might bash me.. but it was funny to see Leeteuk’s hair! Hahaha.. it reminds me of 90’s boybands both American/European and Korean. Sorry but he does not look handsome with that hair. I know he makes fun of that kind of hairstyle during broadcasts, but to use it in a video will make someone say: What the heck were they thinking!!
The song has a lot of elements to it. When it started, it reminds me of a 90s disco song (Venga Boys style anyone?). I thought it would follow that but it changed with a sample of the James Bond theme. And then the verses were sung with an auto-tuned low pitch key. A little confusing! But thank god it’s not as funky as their previous style.. but just a little bit confusing! Do I like it? The sample for the James Bond theme is nice.. the disco-ish tune was ok.. but the auto-tuning NOOOO!!! Why oh why did they autotune Kyuhyun and Ryeowook — bad idea! They are like the one of the best voices in SJ and you auto-tune them! That’s a crime! What were they thinking! Also, Kangin and Donghae can sin’g.. why did you auto-tune them too! urgh!
I did enjoy this song, but at the moment of writing its a bit confusing for me. But I got you little runaway” is pretty catchy. And for not sounding too much like their old songs, I’d give props to this. But for the moment I could not decide if this is better that Sexy, Free and Single.
Which one do you think is better?
Final Verdict: I still can’t decide if this is better than Sexy, Free and Single but thank god it’s a bit different. Nothing new with the video but loved the dance!
