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!!!

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™‚

Dance Tutorials Anyone

I am postponing the Get to Know them post.. I am still on the process of finding the right kind of pictures to post.. I don’t stay too long online and I don’t have much time these days as I have lots to do.. so.. those posts will have to come later

But that doesn’t mean I am not posting anything…

I can post something still…

So one friend asked me if (because she knows how crazy I am about Kpop) I learned to dance all those K-dances also… my answer is no! wahaha… though the dance steps are familiar but I prefer to sing than to dance ^_^

I suddenly remembered that conversation today and so I made this post to include some of the dance tutorials of Kpop artists..

After watching all those videos of Ingkigayo, Music Bank and Music Core (which we missed for a month now), I’m pretty sure you want to imitate your favorite idols.. so I present them to you… and this will come handy when you sing in the neoraebang! ๐Ÿ˜€

Tell Me (one dance I would love to learn! kk)

Gee (kk i know the chorus a little.. but then again i would rather sing it!) – 2 parts

Mister (butt dance baby!) – 2 parts

Abracadabra

Genie (Tell Me Your Wish)

This is from their latest CF. They look cute :D… the song sounds familiar right! ahaha… to me this song is the over used song for most cheerleading routines! kk ย (Oh micky you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind hey micky! kk)

Run Devil Run… SNSD vs. Kesha

I don’t know why but I am getting addicted to the Run Devil Run song of SNSD these days. Probably because of the catchy music and the part where it say “manner opsseo”.. During the first week that this song became popular, I heard the same single from Kesha..ย If you don’t know who Kesha is, she is the girl who sang the Tik Toc (the song that has the lyrics that goes brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack.. couldn’t imagine myself doing that! yuck!!).

Anyway I am posting the two versions of Run Devil Run.. which one do you like best?

SNSD Version

Kesha Version

I am not a super duper SNSD fan.. I don’t go crazy with them but their songs are really catchy. But I like their version better than Kesha’s. However this is not my favorite SNSD song.. it will have to be Gee! then Kissing you!

Oh well not much to say.. but whose version do you think is better?

Sowoneul Malhaebwa (Tell Me Your Wish) – SNSD

The more I listen to this song, the more it becomes addictive. I didn’t like the song that much when I heard it the first time, but the more I listen to it the more I’m liking it. It’s the same effect that I had with Gee.

girls generation

The song I am talking about is the new single of So Nyeo Shi Dae called ย Sowoneul Malhaebwa / Tell Me Your Wish ์†Œ์›์„ ๋งํ•ด๋ด (Genie). They released the song two weeks ago and I can’t help liking the song especially when I see the girls perform on the Korean music shows. Because of that I am posting the video and the lyrics of the song. ๐Ÿ˜€

Critique of Idol Group’s Lead Vocals – Junsu’s the best!

This was shared by a friend of mine while we were chatting earlier today. Since that friend did not want to post it on our blog (I share a blog with 4 other friends), I ended up posting it. It took me quite awhile since I had to look for good pictures (the hardest part of posting something.. sigh).

So anyway, recently, Arena magazine put out a list for All Round Critique Of Idol Groups’ Lead Vocals. And guess who got number 1! ahaha it’s Junsu!! I totally agree (without any biases whatsoever). To me he has one of the best voices that I’ve heard and I really like the way he sings and expresses his feelings while singing a song (oops there goes the bias part ehehehe..)
