Don’t let your eyes wander from Girl’s Day!
Did you like the song?
I absolutely adore this song. It’s catchy, fast-paced, sweet, and has a message that boyfriends should only look at their girlfriends and be good to them (or they’ll leave!).
What was your favorite part of the song?
What a great chorus, seriously (starting at 0:53), especially the “su isseo” ending. And I liked the two middle sections that broke up the song nicely.
Does the English make you want to rip your eardrums out?
The English is pretty typically horrible and randomly scattered throughout. (The first word is “Stupid!” And I’m sorry, Yura, but that pronunciation is not good.) Plus later we get such gems as “What you gonna, baby? Wanna let me let me go” (1:23) and “Love is fantasy” (2:19). The worst part of the song in my opinion is Yura’s “Boy, give it up” (2:48).
THAT SAID, not kidding, guys, I teared up when the song changed to “I love you” (3:06). Really nice celebratory line there, and the pronunciation was great.
Did you like the video?
I really did enjoy the video. The girls looked so happy and excited to be “directing” their own video, and happiness like that is infectious.
Was there a storyline? If so, did it make sense?
The girls get a chance to direct their own video! Then the music video takes us through them recording and playing with cameras and shining light in each other’s faces. It’s funny, especially the Behind the Scenes at the end. I cracked up when they showed how dejected the other directors looked.
Was the dance cool and distinctive?
I don’t think there was a dance.
Do the members look good?
HELL YES. They all look gorgeous; I had a hard time picking a bias and an insanely hard time picking which one stood out the most. This is a group where everyone is really lovely and seems like a kind person. I finally picked Hyeri as the one I found the prettiest, but I definitely think all the members look great.
Which member stood out the most?
This was really difficult for me, as they were all really cute and basically had equal screentime. Hyeri is so good-looking, Jihae is fun in the director’s chair with her megaphone, Yura and her pigtails are cute, and Sojin is very compelling with an awesome hairstyle here. However, it’s hard to give it to anyone but Minah, since her antics were a big focus of the MV. She seems to have been picked as the adorable but clueless one.
Do you like it enough to buy the song?
Oh yes. The song is superb.
Any ending thoughts?
I wasn’t very familiar with Girl’s Day before this, as I didn’t pay too much attention to Nothing Lasts Forever, Twinkle Twinkle, or Hug Me Once when they came out. Clearly those songs deserve another look.
