Music Video Review: DBSK’s “Catch Me”


DBSK (TVXQ)

Catch Me

The Song:

After  much deliberation we have decided that we love this song.  It took some time for us to really warm up to it, but it is just so silly how could any person not love it? Our anticipation for their comeback has been long awaited and very much theorized.  How on Earth could any person or people ever top or compete with the unrivaled awfulness that is “Keep Your Head Down”? We wondered this very thought, and thank you SM Entertainment for appeasing our restless thoughts with this piece of art.

This is not our favorite song ever, but one of the more interesting songs to come out this year thus far. There are just allot of different parts of the song: dubstep, belting, techno, extreme autotuning. In reality the video pretty much eats the song.  It is extremely difficult to focus on just the song and the music when that is happening in a video.

The song is okay, but we do have to thank Yoo Young Jin for granting our wishes, he somehow found an English phrase even more sexually deprived than “keep your head down”.  We are thank full for his creativeness and ingenuity  in making us and undoubtedly others laugh at the awkwardness of that intentional innuendo.

We have rather little to say about the song because we love TVXQ for their videos not their music. We can appreciate how they at least sang in the dubstep, unlike all the other group that just throw it in for 30 seconds. This blending actually holds our attention and we are still not fans of its use at all we can at least be thankful it was not awful.

The Video:

OMG. No words even can describe our immense and unwavering love for this choreo. Full of arm dragons and awkward positions his is out is the best choreography we have seen all year.

We actually laugh when we watch this video, this dance is exactly what we expect from a true idol group.  It is interesting,  thought provoking, and completely impossible to replicate.

This video is basically SMENT saying “You are welcome Planet Earth”. We can not even begin to describe our undying love for this master piece.  Everything is just too much for human senses to comprehend.  “Catch Me” has probably the funniest choreography ever, virtually every second of the video would make a beautiful screenshot.

We have the utmost respect for TVXQ, they have been through so many unsightly things and “Catch Me” is not exempt from that list. But they continue to persevere and are always professional no matter how much a joke their songs are.

P.S.

Drama Review: Fashion King versus Love Rain


Drama Battle: Fashion King vs. Love Rain

I am going to be totally honest- I don’t like Korean dramas. Generally, I find the plots to suck seeing as Korean people are obsessed with romance (a genre I myself am not too interested in). This isn’t to say I don’t watch Korean dramas though; as boring as they are, they’re great for passing time. Since every K-drama plot is completely predictable, I’ve reduced myself towards watching dramas only to see acting performances by some of my favorite actors and idols (yes, I know idols generally have awful acting, but I always force myself to watch anyhow just to see how awful they are).

Initially, this was my reason for starting both Fashion King and Love Rain. In the past, I’ve enjoyed performances by both Yoo Ah In and Jang Geun Suk, and the additions of Yuri and Yoona from SNSD were even greater bonuses. Yoona is no stranger to dramas; she’s been in a couple before, and though I’ve never watched them, I had heard sufficient opinions about how awful her acting was. Love Rain, I figured, was a good chance for Yoona to redeem herself, especially considering this was less of a drama for tween girls and more of one for the older audience. On the other hand, Fashion King happens to be Yuri’s first drama, and I was very curious to see how she would do. The reason I compare these two dramas now is obvious: both star SNSD members, up and coming actors, and both happened to come out at about the same time. The battle for ratings was on between these two, and comparisons were inevitable.

Spoilers ahead!
