Hyori – Miss Korea ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Legendary Hyori comes back with a classy, mature, and sexy video. Her fashion style is reminiscent of the 60’s in this video, and it seems to be a satire of the way society cares about superficial things. As for the song itself, (which everyone is describing as “jazzy,”), it gives us a nice break from the electro-pop that’s everywhere lately. She supposedly wrote the lyrics herself, and they talk about how any girl can be a “Miss Korea.”
It’s not really Hyori’s usual style, but it’s always nice to hear something like this in the Kpop world.

2PM – All Day I Think Of You (ADTOY)   ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop
Sexy and sensual. They dance with chairs and there’s a shirtless Wooyoung in bed. I like this song more than the “Come Back When You Hear This Song,” which was released earlier and can be found at the end of this list.

B1A4 – What’s Going On? ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Okay, this is a really weird video. I’ve loved B1A4 since they debuted, but… I understand the premise. The girl they like is with a rival guy and they’re worried and trying to figure out what they’re doing together. But the girl and rival are wearing these creepy masks, and the boys sometimes sing with their head in a box. It’s just strange.
As for the song, I love it. The beginning definitely has the B1A4 sound, and I love the little minor part that starts half a minute into the song.

Band Siberian Husky  – Hello Betty  ↓↓↓
Category: Rock

I love the vocals in this one. The girl’s style is pretty cute in this MV too. It just has a feeling of purity and fun.

LC9 – MaMa Beat ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Okay, I hate comparing groups, but at first, the MV really reminded me of BAP’s “Warrior.” I bet I wouldn’t feel this way if they used a different set for filming!  That being said, wow. Now I have an idea why their company was referring to them as the “boy version of the Brown Eyed Girls.” This is their first MV and they rated it 19 themselves, this means they’re probably marketed to an older audience.
It’s pretty hardcore to usual kpop boy groups. The video is full of fighting scenes with lots of blood splattering. I hope they stay this way because we need some more manly guy groups to choose from!

Kim Woo Joo – Farewell Rain ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

A video that starts out cute, but doesn’t end happily. Nobody is quite sure what happened in it, but since the song is about a break-up, that’s what most conclude. Anyway, it’s fun to see a 28-year-old guy that can successfully play the part of a high-schooler!

Shayne – Foreigner’s Confession (Akdong Musician Cover) ↓↓↓
Category: Acoustic Kpop

The adorable Shayne doing a duet with himself. His voice is so soothing and sweet.

4MEN – Propose Song ↓↓↓
Category: Ballad

Just like one would expect from such a title, the song is sweet and romantic. The video is lovely with a pure love vibe. If you love romance or are easily moved, then you must watch this MV.

Yoo Seung Woo – Hello ↓↓↓
Category: Acoustic Kpop

Nice relaxing song. The MV isn’t much, and only pretty much only focuses on Yoo Seung Woo & co.

UV – Because of You ft. Sung Hoon ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop Ballad

Comedic duo UV is back. The song talks about “claiming” a girl for their own. The MV has two guy after the same girl. It’s flirty and sweet… until the end.

As One – Love Is Awkward ↓↓↓
Category: Acoustic Kpop

Cute and creative MV. It makes me want to work on my scrapbook.

Nine Muses – Wild ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

Wow, very sensual. They combine a lot of pleasure & pain symbolism. I really love the jeweled lips.

N-SONIC – Lie  ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

There is so much going on in this video… whew! I can’t focus on anything. The song isn’t too bad though. There’s a nice dubstep break, if you’re into dubstep like I am.

SogyumoAcaciaBand – Almost Blue  ↓↓↓
Category: Indie

Usually I avoid the movie promo MVs because if I posted them, it would be way too much to handle. However, I’ll make an exception for this since it’s an indie band, and the movie sounds interesting.
The movie is called “Dear Dolphin,” and is about two friends that like the same guy. One of the girls dies suddenly and when her friend starts trying to show her feelings to the guy, the dead friend suddenly reappears.


2PM – Come Back When You Hear This Song ↓↓↓
Category: Kpop

2PM is finally back. I like how they literally label different things as the 7 deadly sins in this MV, and the way they do it. However, it does have the weird one-girl-for-all-the-guys thing going on, haha.

  1. I think my favorite song was Love is Awkward. I didn’t like the level of violence in LC9’s debut. I kept expect that they would cut away as they hit each other with all those weapons, but they didn’t. I like a beautiful blood scene now and then (*cough* all the time*cough*), but this was a bit more in the nauseating gore category.

    I think I’ve made it my habit to read Dramabeans 1N2D recaps while listening to all these songs. I like it.

    • I’m glad to be a part of your weekly routine XD

      Haha, you should’ve seen the look on my face when they got that ax out. I was like… he’s not really going to chop someone with that right? And then he did.
