One of the more awful songs that has ever been created. But seriously who could have had high expectations? Since this is a “dance troupe” wee cannot really expect fantastic singing. Other than Luhan this little mishmosh of idols really does not have a singer. And of course this being the case, Luhan would only get 2 lines in the whole song.
We guess the coolest part is the strange super duper auto-tuned Hyoyeon rap thing, and Henry’s high pitched scream. This song leaves everything to be desired.
Please anyone tell us any redeeming factor (other than the members of the group themselves) of this video.
It is garbage. Seriously? Seriously? SM this is not even funny, these outfits are so horrendous we were forced to comment. It is like every scrap of fabric in the wardrobe department was gathered up and sewn onto these poor people. The outfits are offensive, dare we say some of the worst of the year. We almost want to vomit at the sight of Luhan’s pants, but not just one pair of his pants all of them. Who seriously does that? It is like a punishment. The cloths are just some of the most god-awful things we have ever seen, and the wort thing is we know, WE KNOW that designers would loan them clothing for these videos for free. If they got a decent stylist with good international connections, they could be adorned in Dolce & Gabbana, Channel, Versace, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Marc Jacobs all designers want celebrity endorsements. And as seen before crazy fangirls will buy anything that their ultimate bias has worn, this would be so beneficial for both parties, not only boosting Eastern sales for designers but helping these people not look like shit. We do not see how they can even bare to put on those awful cloths, is the fame even worth that humiliation? Wearing Hanes white tee shirts and just normal jeans would have been a thousand times better than that garbage.
We think we understand the concept, it seems they were aiming for a cool “gangster” (we use this term loosely) vibe. But as this video makes evident, between Luhan and Taemin not a single ounce of bad-ass is present. Kai is valently trying but just looks like a poser. Henry is really the only one that would not get beat up by a real group of cool ghetto people. On top of all of this, Eunhyuk really does not fit in with all of these young people. He is the post professional and most seasoned, but he really just sticks out among the fresh faced remainder of the group. His presence would also be less awkward if at least one other older generation SM artist was there, like a member of TVXQ or another SUJU member.
Now, to our biggest question…
Why is the dancing so sub-par?
This is a dance group and the dance is not even good. The choreography is lame, there is nothing super cool or catchy, K-Pop is now separated into 2 eras, Pre- and Post- “Gangnam Style”, everything that is made now has to be up to that standard of excellence. A pretty face is not going to cut it anymore, but the worst thing about this sub-unit is they are more than pretty, they have talent. And this video is still crap. Their abilities are so vastly underutilized it is a shame. When hearing of a SM dance unit, we expected dances full of precision and power along the lines of the dances of “Lucifer” and “Catch Me”, SM has really let us down in this second half of 2012. We are so underwhelmed by this garbage. If this was a rookie group debut, we would hate this video.
There is no excuse for this sad waste of 3 and a half minutes.
This is just a hot mess! And SM you should be ashamed!
