So it’s a Saturday and I have nothing to do today. And I was a bit bored, so I decided to post some again.
Though I haven’t posted anything, I am still a bit updated with Korean music. But with the recent rise in the number of Kpop groups, I don’t know who is who! Seriously… they are just so many of them now… and their songs are just the same.
But recently I find myself listening to a lot more than just Kpop. I’ve been listening to a lot more than just Kpop, but I think I really enjoy the K-indie music as well as K-hiphop. And this song has been on my playlist. It’s from MFBTY (My Fans Better Than Yours), a project group of Tiger JK, Yoon Mirae (Tasha/T) and Bizzy. It’s called Sweet Dream.
I actually heard the song before I saw the video. So when I saw the video I was like.. What the heck happened! Hahaha. I have actually been a fan of Drunken Tiger and Yoon Mirae for quite sometime now. And this is the first time I’ve seen them do this kind of stuff in their videos. It was like seeing their alter egos in the video. Did I enjoy it? Ya.. in a twisted kind of way. Maybe I enjoyed it because it was fun to watch them here. Because it’s very different from their image. It shows that they aren’t afraid how they looked like or if it does something to their current image!
The video is full of surreal things. You really don’t expect that to happen in reality. Maybe they were trying to say a lot of possible things can happen in our dreams – which I bet a lot of us had experienced one time or another. And then when we wake up we know it was just a dream. But I have to say, the robot Tiger dream was scary!
I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (notice the number of exclamation points!) When I heard this song the first time I just played Melon 100 chart. I honestly thought it wasn’t a Korean artist who sang it. But when I saw the album cover had Yoon Mirae I couldn’t believe it.. then I hear Tiger JK rap. I am so amazed by this song. Amazed because the beat was electronic-club with a mix of hip hop. It was like listening to a Black Eyed Peas song only in a different language!
I honestly enjoy Korean electronica music. Though this genre is not so popular yet and is (to me) still of an Indie status. But I love this kind of music and it’s certainly something different from Kpop. I am so happy that MFBTY produced this song because it lets people know that there is more than just Kpop in the Korean music industry.
I do hope that they will be making more of this sound even though they are just a project group. Korea needs more electronica!
Final Verdict: You’d never believe it was from a Korean artist until you hear the rap. If you like electronic/hip-hop you’d love this song. I can’t wait to hear more of MFBTY songs!
