Finally making some longer posts. Will be busy again for some time. It’s almost the end of term here and I have to do final. I can see myself checking papers real soon! But will post as often as I can.
Anyway, this is a post for T-ara‘s Sexy Love.
First things first, I know there has been and still is some controversy surrounding this group, but I don’t hate them nor do I hate Hwayoung. I listen to T-ara because of their music, so I don’t really care much about the controversies as long as they still make good music. That’s more important to me!
There have been other videos that have been released for this song, including the drama version. Although that version was one of the best they made, I’m not really into long drama versions. I just like the action thing that they did. And to insert a little comment, Eunjung has really matured as an actress, it’s a shame she didn’t do Five Fingers. Anyway, because I like dance versions better (tehee), I posted that on top.
I kind of like this video for the robot concept. Though I’m not much of a fan for robots and dolls being placed in music videos but I think the girls did a pretty good job acting as if they were robots. The movements were well played as well as well edited. Also, I like the harlequin / circus theme they had in some parts of the video. The blend of the puppet as well as the robot concept seems to work fine with me. I think that’s why I was sold with the dance version.
The dance – I’ve seen my share of the robot dances and I think it worked fine. Actually scratch that, for this song, I like the robot dance better than their dance in the chorus. Haha.. it was a little off to do the robot dance and then do that sexy-ish dance in the chorus. The robot dance looked cooler! 🙂
When I first heard it, I loved it on the spot. To me for T-ara’s songs, there have been hits and misses. The biggest hit for me still is I Go Crazy Because of You. That’s still the best tract for me followed by TTL (though it’s a duet with Supernova). The biggest miss was Ya Ya Ya. That song was really not my style. But this song reminded me of the old T-ara songs, the ones that they did pre- Why Are You Being Like This? era. This song reminds me so much of Bo Peep Bo Peep with a little bit of Like the First Time and a dose of I Go Crazy Because of You. That combination works fine with me.
The thing that I didn’t like though is that auto-tune rap! Kpop stop with the auto-tune already! It’s a pity you’re not letting the girl’s real voice be heard. I am not much of a fan with auto-tune as you can see. Why? Because a lot of Kpop songs from long ago did not have auto-tune and the song worked out just fine! I know it’s a trend now, but stop it already!
Also, the girls still have to work out with their pronunciation. English coach anyone? The title of the track is written completely in English so I think it’s only fitting they should practice saying this properly! But nevertheless I love it!
Final Verdict: I don’t care what haters say, I love this song but I prefer the Robot Dance video than all the other MVs.
