G-Dragon moves viewers with his powerful video ‘That XX’


Just when everyone was expecting something upbeat and sexy basically because That XX was rated 19+ G-Dragon shocks everyone with a sad love song in the form of a slow acoustic ballad. Seriously!! NO ONE WAS EXPECTING THIS!

GD with lightning fast rap is ok, or GD with a upbeat electric song is ok! But We get a sad looking GD singing his heart out and of course he tugs on every fans heartstrings!

One word which can represent this songs mood is Melancholy..  ‘That XX’ contrary to the belief is not rated cos of the scenes and here I was expecting a part 2 of ‘Strong baby’ and all we got was a forehead peck!! Apparently it is cos of verbal explicitness..GD used the word Bastard/son of a bitch in place of XX. In the offical MV this word was bleeped out leading to a hilarious version of an MV with many bleeps. But I still cannot understand Korean media laws cos me and many more k drama fans will testify to the fact that we have heard that particular word countless times in dramas and we haven’t been corrupted honestly.

Despite the R rating ‘That XX’ was a mellow single where GD displayed his vocals. His leading lady was Jennie Kim who will debut as a member of a new girl group of member with YG entertainment. Now onto the review!



The song was painful! That’s a fact.. Anyone who knows GD will know he is a master when it comes to writing sad love songs..Like ‘Lies’ , ‘Haru Haru’ are the best example. But he surpassed this by mixing his pain with a few choice words describing his feelings which ultimately led to the rating.

‘That XX’ is a video which is in the form of a soliloquy  We see GD relating his thoughts to himself and to the audience but not to the girl who is the main stimuli behind his thoughts.

Here are the translated lyrics,

Walking on the street, I bumped into your man (Yeah I saw him)
I didn’t want to believe it, but my hunch turned out right (I told you)
He’s not wearing that ring you gave him, there’s another girl by his side
But I’ve said enough (I don’t wanna hurt you)

Now you’re getting angry with me (Why?)
You say “He’s definitely not that kind of person” (Sure you’re right)
Seeing your eyes, I reply that I probably got it wrong
See, I lied for you (I’m sorry)

I hate that you don’t understand me
I hate all this waiting
Let go of his hand (break it off with him)
When you’re sad, I feel like I’m dying

That XX, what does he have that I don’t
Why can’t I have you
That XX doesn’t love you
How much longer are you going to cry yourself silly?

When you speak of him, you look so happy (you look happy)
It’s good that you can be this happy (I’m happy)
You say you really love him, want to be with him forever
You trust him completely (I don’t know what to say no more)
Your friends all know that guy (yup they know)
It’s so obvious, why can’t you see (it’s you)
They say love is blind, Oh baby, you’re so blind
Please, I beg you, break it off

Oh I hate that you don’t understand me
I hate all this waiting
Let go of his hand (break it off with him)
When you’re sad, I feel like I’m dying

That XX, what does he have that I don’t
Why can’t I have you
That XX doesn’t love you
How much longer are you going to cry yourself silly?

Expensive cars, beautiful clothes, high-class restaurants, they all suit you well
But that XX beside you, he doesn’t suit you, he really doesn’t
He smiles like a hypocrite with you, brushing your face and hair
But he’s thinking of another woman for sure, how dare he
The amount of tears you’ve cried, I want to make you happy by the same amount, baby
Rather than going through the pain alone, share some with me, baby
Please look at me, why can’t you realise that I am your love
Why are you the only one who doesn’t know

That XX, what does he have that I don’t
Why can’t I have you
That XX doesn’t love you
How much longer are you going to cry yourself silly?

That XX, what does he have that I don’t
Why can’t I have you
That XX doesn’t love you
How much longer are you going to cry yourself silly?

Here XX = Bastard

The lyrics was completely a friend zone anthem which talks about how the girl he loves falls for a bad guy who doesn’t treasure her love.

It was so painful that I was crying about 1 min into the video without even knowing why I was crying. Just like ‘Haru Haru’ this song leaves a painful ache in ones heart. GD’s rendition of the song was perfect. He did not falter even for one second and the guitar at the background provided just the right sound and feel. One can fall in love with his voice and it is rare to hear this side of him as he is more partial to the hip hop genre.

Each line was powerful..

But this part..

I don’t know what to say no more

Yes the girl he loves has fallen too deep in love with a wrong man. She trusts him completely and is happy with him. This puts GD in a situation where his words are powerless. And thus he doesn’t want to say anything any more cos it is not of use.

YGE artists have a powerful grasp over English and most of their songs have good pronunciation of English. Yet this line was not correct grammatically. It raises a question did mighty GD make a mistake? Nope he is too much of a perfectionist to do that!

I think he did this on purpose.. to prove that his words have no meaning to the girl and so he uses a line which is not correct to show how wrong his words will echo in the girls mind. He makes his meaningless thoughts to appear as a text in the MV too.

Yes the song was overwhelmingly sad but when combined with the MV it made it even more beautiful in all our eyes.

On one hand we had ‘One of a kind’ where the lyrics were boastful to the extreme. And now we have ‘That XX’ which moves people with its overwhelming sadness.


This video is even more complicated than One of a kind. According to me one can break and analyse this video in three ways. I will be focussing on the view which I find most intriguing.

# 1

This is the most popular version where GD plays two roles. One of the bad guy who cheats on the girl with the gelled up hair, weird ahjussi glasses, tatoos etc. And the good guy who fell in love with innocent girl is sweet and has his hair down and minus tatoos or too many piercings. He feels bitter towards the guy who made the young girl his own.

# 2

This is something like forbidden love. The guy who is XX in this video is too fake and artificial. He is not fitting to be a love for the young girl. In many scenes we actually see GD look old *personally I think GD borrowed TOP’s stylist and hairdresser! LOL he is TOP Ver 2.0 in this MV* and sophisticated – a man of the world. While the girl looks young and lost. Especially in the last scene where GD is leaning in for a forehead kiss Jennie doesn’t respond to the kiss showing how much of a wrong pairing this is! I think the reason GD selected this young 16-year old for this mv was to convey this to the viewers that this love is forbidden another reason is it will serve as a good publicity for any new artist who is about to debut to star as a lead in GD’s MV . The victorian background and the fashion further solidifies this cos ladies of the olden generation are more reserved and delicate. They follow certain etiquette and are inexperienced which makes them the easy prey for men who are out to take advantage.


Now this is the way I see the MV and I will review the MV based on this 🙂

Two sides of a coin

This MV is a soliloquy as I mentioned and I believe that this video is just not about a third person who steals the girl and a dragon who is friendzoned. *as if that is even possible*

What I feel is that both Good and Bad Guys in this MV are the same.

G-Dragon is actually the guy who Jennie falls in love with but he has a dark side to him. He is struggling with his own self to try and accept her love and change into a better person. But he cannot.

To me both these guys are the same..

One who is a player..*Can I for one moment stop and just point out how those piercings are sexy!!! wow*

One who really cares for the girl..

The video starts with the sad GD looking out of a window where some sound of a woman laughing is heard..It looks like he is creeping on someone.. Throughout the video the sad GD is seen looking at the girl from afar like he is scared to approach her. It gives off a weird vibe when he looks through the keyhole into her room. Maybe this sad GD is just not all it seems. He has a diff side to him. And that side is the player GD. He knows he is hurting her. But he continues it. He plays around with her feelings. He lies and she believes.

Mine & Yours:

Player GD and Jennie share couple piercings and tatoos. It is like their closeness is shown this way. But under all the couple stuff one can see that player GD is the dominant.

The couple tatoos really show this. On the girls neck we have Mine written and on player GD’s neck we have Yours written.

Note that the girl has Mine like a brand written on her..Yours seem less powerful than mine. More like he is stating his power over her. He can be anyone’s Yours but she is only his Mine.

This shows that he is not willing to give her up and that he will forever be his own. This is quite similar to what the sad GD is feeling. Even though he is upset the girl is falling for the bad side he cannot do anything. In other words he will not do anything. Only the girl has to break it off proving that the sad GD and the player GD are same. They will not do anything to break off with the girl as she is Mine to him. She has to do it on her own. G Dragon has also said that in many interviews. In reality G Dragon never breaks up with girls. He tries to make the girls themselves break off but the girl has to do it. As always GD writes from his personal life.


When Jennie is not around GD looks around her room. He sees many things which reminds him of her. Like photographs, polaroids. Does he really like those? In another scene we see him actually close a black book. It looks like it is a journal containing letters. The player GD doesn’t like those. In a moment of weakness sad GD collects memories of her. But afterwards the player GD just puts them in his drawer and closes them off effectively putting a stop to the influence of memories.

The bath tub scene is also a very touching scene in this MV.

We see Jennie first submerging into the tub and then GD rises out of it. It speaks about how Jennie is nearly drowning in her love for GD. She really cannot identify any good or bad in her lover and is just submerged into the pool of memories both happy and painful. But GD emerges out of it. He is suffocating due to the love. He wants to give into her love but he finds he cannot and thus escapes it. This scene also signifies that Jennie is loving till death. She is willing to sacrifice anything for GD as she is submerging and no shot of her resurfacing is shown. She is really at the edge.

This is my most favorite scene..It is too powerful and painful. GD wants to share her pain but he cannot do it and finally emerges out.

Dark and Light:

What was really amazing in this video were the effects. It was mostly in a dark background. Also GD in one of the shots really showed how both good and bad GD are same.

Here you clearly see the effect of light and dark. One side of him shows a light side with not much makeup or eye liner. But the other is dark both with the hair and the eye. This shows that both the sad and the player GD are the same. Yes he loves her but he cannot seem to stop cheating on her. His dark side triumphs most of the time leading to frustration. He really wants to stop hurting her and starts loving her.

The amount of tears you’ve cried, I want to make you happy by the same amount

When he fails to make her happy he can only show his frustration through wrecking his room.

Here you can clearly see the difference where one eye has guyliner while other is bare.

GD clearly fluctuates well between these two. One moment you see a guy with tears in his eyes. And the next you see a cold look and a man who jus hugs the girl without sincerity. It is quite scary to see how he acts out the split personality.

There is another scene to show the two sides of GD.

GD standing between two angels. Mayb it represents the girl and the player GD. But isn’t it more apt to denote a GD who is reaching out on the left to the one who has his hand held on by the girl but is actually facing the other direction. This shows that GD wants to hold her but his eyes also stray far away.

Visual Effects, Makeup and Tattoos:

First thing which I found weird in this video was the amount of makeup which was caked onto GD. Did he not have enough time to make sure his makeup was well spread? This was my first time experiencing this as Koreans are known for smooth skin and BB creams really are a integral part of their makeup.

Then I saw that the lack of smooth skin was too apparent! Wait! did GD do that on purpose? Why does his skin look like sandpaper in some shots?

I remember interviews where GD has told everyone of his nickname “Sand Paper Kwon” !! It denotes a person who has a tough and rough personality on the exterior and looks unapproachable. Mayb all this extra makeup was to denote that cold-city personality tag which he carries. Also the makeup made him look really old and even more emphasized the age difference between Jennie and player GD.

I don’t think GD is a person who will accidentally apply heavy makeup which makes him look old and weird.

The video also had this sharp visual effects which was highly seen during the player GD parts. The coloring was more rich during his scenes like the scene where he removes Jennie’s couple ring and embraces an unknown girl. But the effect was soft and dreamy when it came to sad GD. Some scenes even looked smoky when sad GD came again showing that sad GD had less influence and player GD was the stronger of the two. He continues to struggle with his self throughout the video.

The tatoos which GD had besides the Mine & Yours couple tatoos are the ones on his left hand.

It shows the follwing Love, Hate, Rock, Diamond, Number 8, Rose.

Maybe the diamond = rock equates a ring which in turn means ‘engagement/marriage’. Rose signifies romance and 8 is GD’s special number. His birthday falls on 18/08/1988 and thus he uses 8 in many cases. He even used it in his One of a kind MV!

I think love and hate again points that he has a dual outlook on romance and marriage. GD half loves romance/marriage and half hates love/marriage. This again shows his reluctance to commit to Jennie. Sad GD loves her but player GD cant seem to stop looking at others and thus ultimately lying and hurting her. He is in a dilemma where his split personality fights against each other.

The MV closes with a scene with player GD and Jennie sitting together while he leans in for a kiss. So the girl does end up with bad guy but what if there is a good side in him which will maybe shine through??

I really love the MV because the song and video match each other. “One of a kind” had been a fast song with varied scenarios and GD shows another side through ‘That XX’. He really is a versatile musician who proves he can adapt to any genre of music he wants. My only regret is that we never could see GD playing guitar in the video. But hopefully his live performance will have a guitar part.

To all those who like something slow and bluey to suit ones gloomy mood this is the right song!!

So will be running off and waiting patiently for GD’s next song and hopefully the title song. BYEEE!!!

Crash closer to BAP

When I say Closer, I mean “Closer”. This MV is basically a video collage of all the nostalgic moments of BAP. Do you remember- those “feel good” picnic scenes of dramas and movies? Behind the screen scenes? Funny moments in variety shows? Loved those right? Imagine a docu type video with all those “heart warming” moments in one MV and thats Crash! I think this MV is one special fanservice by the BAP- getting their fans a “peep look” into the “sweet seconds” of their life.

This song is kind of surprise from the creators of power-kick songs like warrior and power, but I am not complaining. Looks like they are taking a break  from their usual fire! I am positive that this song is a one time thing for the band, so enjoy the peppiness for now.

Song and MV:

The zoo part of the MV is shot in Malaysia-all the Malaysian fans would be proud! The other are tit bits from their BTS. Unfortunately the MV has absolutely no relation to song lyrics. But the instrument beats,pop vibe and the song mood goes perfectly with the MV. There was a whistle sound which is repeated throughout the song-cute and creative. At first I even thought that whistle sound was by the zoo guard-LOL!

Some of personal favorite cute moments of the MV

Staring at the monkey!

Chasing the duck!



Fake Biceps!

Bromance 😉

What are your favorite moments?

Song English Translation:

I can’t believe it, it’s really perfect
I am breathless, it’s not fair
Your eyes, your lips, you’re everything really left me shook up

Like a fool, I lost myself to her unforgettable first impression

It’s like my heart is broken (malfunctioning)
My love is on fire
My heart beats thump thump (and beats)
Please save me (You’re my girl)

Help me help me help me
My breath quickens when I see you
Help me help me help me
When I see you my eyes get dazzled
My heart thumps thumps and looks for you
Where you are? I’m waiting for you

You you you – meeting you is really a crash
I want to get to know you better
I turned into Conan, you won’t know my feeling
I keep thinking about you, girl, you’ve made me forget my first love
Even if you keep telling me to go
I’m still going to tell you you’re my everything
Cause I love you girl

Like a fool I lost myself to her unforgettable first impression

It’s like my heart is broken (malfunctioning)
My love is on fire
My heart beats thump thump (and beats)
Please save me (You’re my girl)

Help me help me help me
My breath quickens when I see you
Help me help me help me
When I see you my eyes get dazzled
My heart thumps thumps and looks for you
Wehere you are? I’m waiting for you

Na na na na na na na na (Hey)
Na na na na na na na na (Hey)
Na na na na na ~ na na na na na
Na na na na na ~ na na na na na

I almost catch you and yet you go further away
Please give me a chance
If you can hear my heart – please answer me
To me

It’s like my heart is broken (malfunctioning)
My love is on fire
My heart beats thump thump (and beats)
Please save me (You’re my girl)

Help me help me help me
My breath quickens when I see you
Help me help me help me
When I see you my eyes get dazzled
My heart thumps thumps and looks for you
Wehere you are? I’m waiting for you                                          Credits: TEMPSUBBER2012 – YouTube


I came across a handful of criticism from people who called the MV “cheap”, “disappointment”,”could have done better” and the song as “just another kpop”. But come on this song is a gift “for the fans”- when it comes to gift don’t you think hand made unique gifts are better than colorfully wrapped flashy gifts? Would you call those hand made stuffs cheap? Also the song is really enjoyable and pleasant to hear; Couple of times after I heard the song, it was all inside my head- Real Catchy! Crash- A TREAT FOR THE FANS!!!

Blow the Candles- 2AM Jo Kwon

Saengil Chukahae Jo Kwon!

The one who spreads happiness around and never fail to make us smile! A man of talent, charisma and determination. His voice makes our heart go “Thump Thump” and his craziness drives us crazy with joy! He is the man of variety show—>Oh! to the Jo Kwon moments!

Aigooo cute! What a weird way of growing up Kwonnie!Of course he doesn’t look like he has grown up a bit in heart!(No complaints there)But in looks though he is getting handsome and handsome by the day.

He also posted one another photo with a giant party hat and Baskin and Robins Cake(Looks delicious…slurrp)!

Tweet:“Having my birthday party at the same place for 12 straight years!! They made a giant birthday hat out of rolling paper!! It feels like I’m back to being a trainee >.< I love you all – Wonder Girls have a safe trip to the U.S.!! Watch out for the hurricane T.T.”

Enduring all the pain he went through as a trainee(longest serving trainee in JYP) he has worked hard to get to where he is right now.Thank You for working hard without giving up!

We wish you all happiness in the world  Kwonnie! ^^

Kwon is sharing his joy with his cute puppy ^^

I thank the Heavens for your Existence! Because you are awesome!!!

G-Dragon is ‘One Of a Kind’ in K Pop indeed!!


Three years after his first album G Dragon made a comeback on 25th August with the song ‘One of A Kind’. This song may or may not be the title song and it is just the first of the many songs that will be released in the following days!

Moving onto the song ‘One of a kind’ is really deserving of the name. It really is one of a kind with different concept,a wild rap and an ever changing dragon at its helm.

I was a crying fangirl mess on seeing the masterpiece at the beginning but after I calmed down eventually the awesomeness that is G Dragon amazed me!

G Dragon is well known for his song writing, composing and also producing skills and one of a kind also proves that he is not one who shirks away from doing different things. The entire MV made me realize that I am seeing something never before seen in K Pop Music video!

I have seen some different concepts in many videos and surely K Pop are masters of doing things in style. Example Big Bang’s Fantastic Baby itself is a best case where concept and production skills were at its best. But I am yet to see a full blown Hip Hop video the likes of ‘One of a kind’.


When one just looks at the surface ‘One of a kind’ may look like he is trying to imitate the western style of music and trying to copy american hip hop. But that is where the similarities end. Yes he did try hip hop Duh!! G Dragon is a Rapper! Of course he tried hip hop.

But he did not follow any american music video. Maybe he did it deliberately to avoid being accused of plagiarism yet again. His video was so different from an american hip hop video like how salt is different from sugar.

The essence of this video and the meaning behind it is,


G Dragon sings about how he is wild and young and how he is a genius and lives life to the fullest..


Here is the lyrics for ones full understanding..

I’m just wild and young, just wild and young
(hello) me and choice
(hello) yes sir, i’m one of a kind
I’m a bear that can do a lot of tricks—no, more like a fox
(hello, hello, hello) yes sir, i’m one of a kind
I’m an annoying snob
cus I’m quite expensive

Yes hyung, yes noona (whats wrong with you)
Ah, I’m just bored
Yes hyung, yes noona, (what’s wrong with you)
I’m sorry that I’m so popular

I’m there at just one phone call, i’m a 88 08 18
Someone try to hold me back, I’m ranked number one
Because I’m different, because that’s me!

Get back, are you kidding with me? Young and rich—that describes me
So what do you want me to do?
Are you kidding with me? x2

(hello) yes sir, i’m one of a kind
I’m a bear that can do a lot of tricks—no, more like a fox
(hello, hello, hello) yes sir, i’m one of a kind
I’m an annoying snob

This is already my second album,
My rap is what makes takes the ladies to the bedroom—yea, i’m busy
Money flower blooms on my business
My song makes everyone cry

I love it!

I just keep on getting modeling offers
Even when others try to turn their heads away from my face they’re still in the same place because there’s my face everywhere
They don’t have enough copies to sell, in fact
You say you can’t live because of me?

Get back, are you kidding with me? Young and rich—that describes me
So what do you want me to do?
Are you kidding with me? x2

La la la, don’t curse me, oh please, look at me with loving eyes, la la la, please accept me, please love me

(hello) yes sir, i’m one of a kind
I’m a bear that can do a lot of tricks—no, more like a fox
(hello, hello, hello) yes sir, i’m one of a kind
I’m an annoying snob
cus I’m quite expensive

Yes hyung, yes noona (whats wrong with you)
Ah, I’m just bored
Yes hyung, yes noona, (what’s wrong with you)
I’m sorry that I’m so popular

Just follow me, follow me, just follow me, follow me, follow follow me

(hello) yes sir, i’m one of a kind
I’m a bear that can do a lot of tricks—no, more like a fox
(hello, hello, hello) yes sir, i’m one of a kind
I’m an annoying snob
cus I’m quite expensive

To those VIPs who know about G Dragon it was a rare sight to see him bragging about his skills. One can easily point G Dragon as the most shy and humble person among Big Bang members.

The lyrics may seem just like a way to blow his own trumpet but G Dragon actually sends a message with his words.

GD clearly points this out in his song,

  • He is wild and young
  • He is popular and rich
  • He is an annoying snob who is number one

And there are lot more adjectives which describe him.

BUT GD points out all this is not entirely his fault. He did not seek this willingly. He is rich because he is recognised by others and he does not get the money without doing anything. He works hard writing songs, modelling and promoting and many more activities.

He can move people with songs which are melancholy or sexy. But contrary to what others feel he is just not a puppet who does stuff which others want. He has his own ideals on what to do and how to do it. This is explained with an analogy of a bear and fox. GD says he is not just a bear which does tricks but is also clever like a fox.

And lastly the line which touched me most

La la la, don’t curse me, oh please, look at me with loving eyes, la la la, please accept me, please love me

G Dragon has been through many criticisms and has always been judged for his actions, fashion, music and everything. People see him with a prejudiced eye and classify him as someone who is such a person with low morale. But despite all that he just needs love and acceptance. To all those who judge him he just needs em to look at him without the coloured glasses and to actually see the human ‘Kwon Ji Yong’ behind G Dragon and to follow him without cursing!

The entire song may sound like bragging but this one line just shows G Dragon needs people’s acceptance as much as any tom, dick and harry next door!


Contrary to the  deep lyrics the video was all fun and frolic. It starts with GD being all chummy with a tiger cub! The bonding moment between GD and the tiger was just adorable. And then the video started moving fast. We had GD all dressed up in hip hop gear and dancing with many similar outfitted people in a white background. Seriously I LOVE THE CHOREO in this MV.. its not fast paced or anything. It just fits with the song seamlessly and GD just oozes swag all through the video.

GD and Hip Hop:

The video shows many different scenes throughout which can depict who GD really is! The scene with his hip hop friends shows his love for music because after all what is said and done G Dragon ultimately wanted to be a underground hip hop musician and not an idol. So the scenes which depict his lightning speed rap skills just stem from his deepest wish and appreciation for that genre of music.

GD and Girls:

G Dragon seems to be a master at love as depicted by the scene with all the sexy girls with hot legs *damn feeling guilty like hell here* and seems to be a playboy but the scene with the Barbie who has a bad temper shows he is not that cool. He is someone who gets hurt easily in relation and ultimately this leads to the scores of sad love songs which become a hit. A barbie was used maybe to show that GD always falls in love with girls who seem beautiful but are ultimately just plastic.

GD and animals: 

GD’s love for animals is shown through his scene with the tiger cub and bear cub. GD is someone who draws love from animals as seen by his interaction with his pet dog Gaho. GD treats Gaho like his son and the scene with the bear cub where both GD and the bear act cute is too amazing. Koreans have this practise of comparing people with animals and determining their personalities. G Dragon has always been compared to a fox as he revealed in one of his previous interviews. Maybe he values it that much and just showed people that though he looks clueless like a bear that is not the reality. In short GD gets as much love from animals as he gives them.

GD and Kids:

Out of all the scenes this one claimed the ‘awww’ moment for me! He looks adorable with those kids. In a way GD is a kid as seen in the scene where he plays with them use toy phones made of plastic cups. He can be a kid and at the same time a good dad. This scene shows that though he acts like a kid at times he is trying his best to grow up. The scene where it looks like he is having a mug shot shows he is sometimes capable of juvenile mistakes but the next second in place of GD standing we have a kid standing which shows that GD does mistakes like a kid and he never means them.

GD and Criticism: 

This aspect has been depicted very well and has the strongest effect in the MV. His round at the boxing ring shows that he is always assaulted by the criticisms but he never fights back because he realises he deserves the harsh words of people to an extent. Though he has a golden head protective gear it doesn’t stop him from getting hurt but he takes the blow continuously until he is knocked down. But he is saddened by the fact that though people punish him they never forgive or forget his past mistakes. They continue to treat him as a criminal on stand which is not the case as he is trying to mend his ways.

GD and Frustration: 

Being an idol is difficult and GD has those moments too which is put forward in the scene where he is sitting stoically while his stylist goes about dressing him. He feels that his life has become monotonous and he is leading a life which is just not interesting but is as boring as the grey shade of clothes he is wearing. All these emotions build up and leads to him breaking down things in frustration. He cannot deal with the way his life is moving and he decides to break down all the stereotypes of his that people have. The scene where he hits glass cases with his outfits shows that he is breaking down all the past characteristics which others attributed to him. And he decided to start over.

GD and New beginning:

Throughout the video has been about how he has been. His dreams, his failures, his pain, his love and finally his frustration. The last part shows how he is having a new beginning. He is starting with a clean slate and a clean look. He has given up the hip hop look and his adolescent hair styles but is resorting for a mature look. But the video closes with him and TaeYang who is his friend from childhood joking around. Yes G Dragon has decided to change and be this mature man with suave personality but basically he is just a fun loving man who enjoys spending time with his friend. He loves goofing off with Taeyang and enjoying life despite all the things he had gone through till now.


One of the main assets of ‘One of a kind’ MV was the mind blowing fashion. I am not going deep into it. But just wanted to say that though his bright yellow hair was shocking and all the accessories seemed heavy and one too many it just clinched well..

He had so many costume changes and hair styles that my head was spinning but hey we are talking G DRAGON here..!! Am not surprised and have to say that the ramen hair is growing on me!!

Final thoughts is that ‘One of a kind’ is something not seen previously from G Dragon. He has challenged something different and has come up with a mesmerizing project. I love  the effort and hard work he has put into it and hoping his other songs will be as entertaining as this one or even more! ROAR G DRAGON!!

Celebrity adaptation of PSY’s ‘Oppa Gangnam Style’ – SeungRi & Nelly Furtado !

YEP!!! ‘Gangnam Style’ by PSY is still going viraland it has even reached astounding  limits where international TV stations cover this catchy song and baseball stadium filled with baseball fans start dancing as soon as the song is played.

Flash Mob dances are being carried out all over the world and we can see how the horseback ride step is very catchy, sexy and dorky at the same time!

‘Gangnam Style’ fever has not only seized fans but even celebrities have fallen prey to this virus!

What do you know!!!

Canadian singer Nelly Furtado loves ‘Oppan Gangnam Style’ and has been dancing to this song in her concerts which took place in Manila, Philippines.

Here is her version of ‘Gangnam Style’! I would claim this as the sexy version and she moves well indeed!


This is what we call Smexyy!!

It is really amazing that a non-korean idol has parodied this song showing how influential this video has been! PSY went international with just ONE song and really it was a one-of-the-kind song !!

Another celebrity who challenged PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ – SeungRi from Big Bang!

Both PSY and SeungRi are from the same company and Panda Ri playfully challenged his world famous hyung and also requested his hyung not to forget him!

A Panda that dances! ADORABLE!

As SeungRi’s hometown is Gwanju in South Korea many call this “Panda Gwanju Style”

This version is ultra cool and Ri has added his own quirkiness to the steps by making it look choppy! It is not smooth flowing lik Nelly Furtado’s but at the same time it gives a cool vibe!


This is what we call Swag!!

Really love both their performances !!

Which do you like more? Sexy Nelly version or Swag SeungRi version!!

PS: Did you guys know that Big Bang’s Daesung and SeungRi made a cameo appearance in the original version of PSY’s Gangnam Style??? kekeke!

Blow the Candles – G-Dragon!!!

Open the Kpop dictionary- You would find the meaning of G-Dragon as charisma! He is the leader, the trend setter, the daredevil artist,the cutie pie…in short he is “THE G-DRAGON” . Hallyu Guru wishes our multi-talented artist “Saengil Chukka hamnida” !!

Yesss Today is G-Day!!

His birthday is trending on social microblog twitter with the tag #Happy25thGDay! All GD fans do tweet and wish him!

G Dragon himself has tweeted that “Today’s my birthday but I’m at the studio. Nevertheless the greetings make it hard for me to be not happy and this is a bonus! ehey” See working hard even on birthday! Thats what makes you the top star! We wish you all happiness in your life!

He has also attached a video with the tweet in which the audio goes like “I’m just wild and young, just wild and young. Doing it just for fun.
Take it low. Yessir I’m one of a kind~” – An audio teaser as a present for his fans!! Thank You GD!


Uri Taeyang has also tweeted, “Today is the day!! My man GD’s 24th birthday!! Show him your LOVE!! Happy bday my brother!! I’m always proud of you..!! And love you!!

If he had released his second album today as “the rumor said” it would have been a double bonanza!!

BigBang is ‘Alive’ with hot songs of the year!

BigBang is one of the top Korean Boy groups and they are widely known for their widely different music style! They are capable of shifting from a party song with electric music to a sweet melody which shows their prowess in R&B. After a whirlwind of scandals which shook them last year Big Bang made their comeback in 2012 with a strong album ‘Alive’! I know I am quite late to post this but I have recently started listening to their music. I started with their old hits and gradually picked up the recent ‘Alive’ songs!! Gosh!!

I can actually see how they have evolved over the years and can see why they have been tremendously successful!

‘Alive’ has many songs but I have decided to rant and rave about these 4 songs with MVs because they were highly successful in youtube gathering many viewers! So lets see what ‘Alive’ is all about!

Fantastic Baby

Ideally ‘Fantastic Baby’ is the best song to show that they still haven’t lost their style! Out of the 4 I would give ‘Fantastic Baby’ the title of ‘Best Video Ever’ in this album. The opening with an owl made me think creepy and then we see G Dragon sitting in a throne practically smothered in hair! It looks like GD has been in same position for so long that his hair has grown out of control somewhat signifying his hiatus due to the scandal last year! And then after a strong opening scene we move onto the video!


Right from GD with his awesome hair and Taeyang who is all frozen but is slowly starting to thaw I was like shocked! And then enters TOP!!

Wow! Fantastic Baby!

TOP is easily the member with the deepest voice in Big Bang! And I really love how his deep rappers voice has been used in this video! His opening with bright blue hair on a painting shows he has the best visuals among the 5 *best enough to deserve a painting in the museum keke* and his ‘BOOM SHAKALA‘ made me fangirl to the maximum!

Daesung has deviated from his normal style for ‘Alive’ and I like his blonde look for it! When I see him chained I can only think of the pain he had to go through last year and then his vocals! He always amazes one with his high notes!

Finally SeungRi looks all sexy and mysterious in black surrounded by cat women! His body shows the scars which may denote all the hardships BB has to endure!

Being SeungRi biased I was upset he had few lines in this song but I can easily understand why he had so less! Ri is the owner of sweet soft voice in BB the exact opposite of TOP and anyone can see that ‘Fantastic Baby’ is not a sweet melo but a party song! But never fear SeungRi’s line was the most illuminating line for me in the whole song

Mama Just Let me be your Lover!


Wow Fantastic Baby! Starting of with all these sexy elements the song slowly became cute and fluffy at the end with all our adorable dorks dancing crazily! Just shows despite all the chaos and what nots at the end of the day Big Bang is just Big Bang and they are crazy as ever!

Fantastic Baby seems complicated when you see the video for the first time but I got addicted to it immediately as it shows each of the 5 members in a different scenario and all having their own activities and fighting all the ‘Stop Music’ shouts but finally they come closer as a group which all love and respect!

Bad boy

To Be Honest ‘Bad Boy’ was the song which I first liked in this album but then what happened later is a different story! Bad Boy is a classic song where the guy is all like ‘Dont love me am not good for you’ sorta thing and he tells his ‘Good Lady’ to leave him. To make the story short the guy wont change even if it means he has to lose the good girl! MEN!! It’s a universal thing for guys I see! Tsktsk!

Contrastingly ‘Bad Boy’ is very easy and straightforward. Big Bang members keep telling that they are Bad Boys to their girls who ignore them! Well I love Bad boys and so do 90% of female population so can I have you guys?? LOL!!
This song is What I would term the ‘The Cutest Song’!

It gave a hip-hop feeling and at the same time the trio of Taeyang, SeungRi and Daesung did provide their usual vocals in the middle which was the best! And the fashion of the members!! It was subtler than ‘Fantastic Baby’ but at the same time eye-catching.

G Dragon was heavily dressed with a fur like covering and just proving that he has a totally different fashion sense which not many of us can understand. TOP is also leaning towards that end but just have to say that the Skull necklace totally rocks! Wonder how heavy it is keke!

But being from a population of not-so-fashion forward I liked Daesung’s style simply because he was normal and his neutral coloured clothes blended with his bleached hair perfectly! Taeyang and SeungRi love  both your dance forever!!

‘Bad Boy’ is a light song and has a groovy music to listen to!


‘Monster’ is the bottom of my list simply because I was not impressed by the MV! It looked all action packed and stormy and from the future kind but sadly am not a fan of such things and so ‘Monster’ did not touch me like other songs did!

But with respect to the song Big Bang proved that their vocals are still on par with excellence and the weird hairdos do not deter their excellent singing skills!

My opinion for ‘Monster’..

But keeping aside my prejudices I sure have to say that whoever produced the MV is totally cool!

I was like this after seeing the video!

The video opens at a location which looks like a shooting ground and someone is running! Turns out it was TOP but only thing is TOP looks like an alien with weird eyes! In fact all 5 BB members looks different or in other words like a “monster”.

But please do not judge them from their outer appearance! As Daesung keeps insisting that despite a weird nose ring he is in reality a really nice guy! LOL!!

His words..

I love you! Baby I am not a monster!

I take your word Daesung but what is with your fellow member’s hair?

Taeyang who rarely experiments with different hair styles unlike somebody else *cough G Dragon cough TOP* tried something different this time!

The stylist must have just gelled Tae’s hair into two bunches which sadly resembled a Micky Mouse! heehee!!

But fortunately Taeyang came to the rescue of another member who had a  weird haircut and thus saved him by sacrificing himself!

I am talking about G Dragon’s blonde mushroom look! If the micky mouse hair did not exist GD’s mushroom would have been the talk of the town! I barely could see his face though the lip ring  did provide a nice distraction. Only normal person was SeungRi who had numbers scrolling on his forehead! LOL!!

Monster is ‘Most Mysterious Song’ in the album! Maybe ‘Monster’ will be liked by others who are into sci-fi and action stuff but I think ‘Fantastic Baby’ was sci-fi enough for me!


Here comes my most favourite song!!!! As I already said ‘Bad Boy’ stole my heart first and I would term it my first love but ‘Blue’ is my true love! I was a bit put off by the MV at first because it seemed slow and painful! But when I listened to the song carefully and knew what the meaning of the lyrics was I fell in love irrevocably!

YES! ‘Blue’ is a melancholy song which brings tears to one’s eyes with its beauty! But what is the soul of this song?

Not flashy videos or electronic autotuning!

It is just the breathtaking vocals of the members which made it so touching. SeungRi jus took the price this time! He had few lines in all the other hyper songs but he proved his power of sweet vocals with the beautiful chorus!

I’m singing my blues!

Whenever I hear him sing this line I hum along and just get drowned in the melody! G Dragon has once again proved that Big Bang is just not a group which produces breezy and electric songs but it can make one melt with heart warming melodies! Daesung and SeungRi prove that they are the best duo for the next collab unit in YG!! LOL!! Pretty please a Daeri album!!

The rap in this song was considerably slower and less frequent and the beginning of GD’s rap blended so well with Ri’s I’m singing my blues!

Though I was a bit disoriented by TOP’s rap part which seemed quite different to all the bluey vocals but then it did not do much damage!

And Tae’s unique style with the bandana is so adorable and him singing while sitting on top of a roof seems so normal too! ‘Blue’ and ‘Bad Boy’ had many similarities! The coloring of the video was same and the setting did not move around much lik ‘Monster’ and ‘Fantastic Baby’! Most of the times the 5 members were seen together in ‘Blue’ and ‘Bad Boy’ and this portrayed a nice unified image.

‘Blue’ speaks about breakup simple! I was impressed by the supporting actress in this video because she somehow fit into the video and did not seem awkward! The breakup can lead to tears and sorrow and can make one’s life blue because of sadness! But the opening line of winter having passed and spring at last reaching them gives one hope that despite being blue they can overcome their sadness.

In a way ‘Blue’ seems like Big Bang’s song to the world! When faced with a blue time thinking that they can never come back as a group their hearts were sad and filled with doubts. But this new comeback is their first step into the world with hope and trepidation. They have waited with bruised hearts till the winter has passed and now are ready to face spring!

Seeing the overwhelming response that Big Bang has received maybe it is time to start overcoming their fears and sadness! Big Bang you are not alone and your album shows that you’re ‘Alive’ once again and ready to rule the music world!

Blue ‘Best Lyrics’ credit to the mighty genius G Dragon!

Here is the english translation of this song..

The winter had passed
And the spring has come
We have withered
And our hearts are bruised from longing

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

Under the same sky, at different places
Because you and i are dangerous
I am leaving you
One letter difference from ‘nim’^
It’s cowardly but i’m hiding because i’m not good enough
Cruel breakup is like the end of the road of love
No words can comfort me
Perhaps my lifetime’s last melodrama
Now its final curtain is coming down

I was born and i met you
And i have loved you to death
My cold heart that has been dyed blue
Even with my eyes closed, i can’t feel you

The winter had passed
And the spring has come
We have withered
And our hearts are bruised from longing

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

I feel like my heart has stopped beating
You and i, frozen there, after a war
Trauma, that has been carved in my head
Once these tears dry up, i will moistly remember my love
I’m neither painful nor lonely
Happiness is all self-talk
I can’t stand something more complicated
It’s no big deal, i don’t care
Inevitable wandering, people come and go

I was born and i met you
And i have loved you to death
My cold heart that has been dyed blue
Even if you have left, i’m still here

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

Again tonight, underneath that blue moonlight
I will probably fall asleep alone
Even in my dreams, i look for you
And wander around while singing this song

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

(i’m singing my blues)
Used to the blue tears, blue sorrow
(i’m singing my blues)
The love that i have sent away with the floating clouds, oh oh

My only regret is there were other awesome songs like ‘Ain’t No Fun’ ‘Stay Alive’ and more which did not get an MV!! Sigh!!

This post is solely based on my personal preference and it may differ for each and just have to leave a final note that the GIFs I used are not mine but the handsome work of many kindly souls!!

Before I start raving again I gotta run!!

See yah!! Until next time!

Idols’ Colour Explosion – Dye and Try different colours!

Dyeing ones’ hair in all possible colours is quite a common practise among K idols! When I see some of the colours these guys use am reminded of all the cartoons and animes that I watched ages ago..One thing is clear these guys pull off such weird fashion with style and not many of us will have to courage to be caught with these bright hair!
Some Idols appear many times in this list simply because they are the ultimate fashion experts who have tried all possible colours! KUDOS TO ALL!!!
It’s raining colours people!

Super Junior- Spy- Exclusive

Another Hallmark SuJu video-sexy boys doing peppy dance moves. The boys were brilliantly dressed up;were all super suave. And their dance- should I even say? AWESOMENESS!! OMG I my mouth was wide open when Donghae Jumped and my heart jumped even more higher! Heat- shaped bullet shows they are true heart breakers. 90s hairstyle of Leeteuk- I will say not bad(Does not suit him that much but is kinda cute)Some might feel that the concept is getting old but when its SuJu you even forget the need for concept. Why is SM entertainment recycling the same old sets and background for the MVs? God knows! You can enjoy the song only and only because its its SuJu. But I am dying to see new concept from them- changes are for better right?

Spy- the word has some magnetic power in it- So I expected a little more classier and sexier concepts like those in James Bond movies. My expectations from SuJus are met but I expect better concepts from SM!!

Oppa’s Gangnam Style goes viral – GO PSY!

I kept constantly hearing about PSY’s Gangnam Style going viral and it really made me curious to watch this and I finally got around to watching the MV!!

My reaction!

The start was a bit rocky.. I was like what is this guy doing?? Dont tell me this is a korean version of ‘I’m sexy and I know it’

But no fear guys! We dont have dudes in speedos dancing all crazy! What we have is a hilarious version of a guy who tries to show that he is the rich chabeol aka successful drama hero you see in 90% K dramas. What made this video viral is PSY! He is amazing with his dorky dance moves and as you keep watching you say ‘Oppan Gangnam Style’  by the end of the 4 min video.  SO CATCHY!!

Makes you wanna jump up and try that hilarious half sitting dance move called the ‘Horse Ride’ dance move!

The MV is very colorful and very funny! Basically gangnam is an area which is quite posh and well known for the luxurious building and style of living! So PSY is basically showing the girls that he has the gangnam aka the richman style!


But what a way to show that? All his actions seem totally opposite of that of a rich guy trying to woo a girl! gosh when the cam zooms into PSY at around 3.15 I never thought that Oppa would think sitting on a toilet bowl and singing as Gangnam style!!

Just wanna say PSY you deserve all the recognition you got! Getting 240,000,000+ views and being among the top of many lists like iTunes list etc. just shows how much K-POP rules the music world! OPPA GOGOGOGO!! 

Dont stop producing different styled songs and MVs and forever Gangnam style will tickle my funny bones!

Besides I really love your choreo! It is a nice way to display ones’ assets!

G-Dragon’s Solo comeback to coincide with BigBang’s Anniversary?

BigBang is having their 6th anniversary next week and suddenly today in twitter G-Dragon posted a link to a countdown timer which coincides with the anniversary! We all know GD is scheduled to release his album this month which was rumored to be on his birthday Aug 18th but then due to this really brilliant law of Korean Media group which banned uploading music videos online before proper screening YG entertainment hinted that his album release date will be postponed!

The postponement was due to all the time needed to screen his MV and so it was not possible to release it on his birthday!

But this sudden timer has made fans all over go crazy like this because they think the counter denotes GD’s album release date!


So here is the timers link..


I was seriously worried about the comeback because of all this law and ban fiasco but GD just proved he is just not a laughing matter..

So what if you dont allow me to release the MV on my birthday??

I will release it on BIGBANG’s birthday!!

Take that y’all!!

Whats up with Hwayoung and T-ARA?

A great amount of speculation is surrounding girl group T-ARA these past few days! Ad today one of the members Hwa Young’s contract was terminated and she was booted from the group. Though K Pop world is all glam and style there are many incidents which shows that the outer surface which shines and sparkles is not the entire issue at all. This is just the tip of the iceberg! Many controversies have existed where idols, actors, composers and MCs alike have been accused seriously leading to their brief hiatus.

In Hwayoung’s case there is an accusation that she was not that much determined and hard-working. Allegedly many T-ARA staffs complained that she was unfit for continuing as an idol and so the management decided to cut her off. Well its all right that the management gave Hwayoung a job and so they are also fit to take away the job but what really bothered me about this case was the attitude of the other members.

The remaining T-ARA members started to tweet messages which looked like they were blaming people who did  not have the confidence and determination and etc etc. One thing which popped into my mind on seeing their secretmessages was “catfight” Why must idols indulge in this play? If you are not interested or do not like someone else better deal with it. But really to gang up on that said person is not right.. Even if the said person is wrong! The situation that Hwayoung faced is nothing new. Currently solo artist Jay Park was once the leader of 2PM before being accused for his honest comments about the hardships he was facing. Jay Park just posted about his hardships but some netizen had twisted his words thereby leading to him packing his bags. But Jay did not give up and is back as a solo singer who is quite successful and with a bigger fan base. Maybe T-ARA members were right to be angry but it is never right to air your views on social networking sites.

Though this is the darker part but there are some groups which stick closer than glue when such controversies strike em! I am talking about BigBang one of the greatest boy bands that have existed for nearly 6 years. Bigbang hasn’t been without its share of scandals. Right from their debut there have been ‘instances’ which makes me want to applaud them for their bond. 2011 was  not a strong  year for Bigbang. Daesung met with an accident where he ran over a motorcyclist and their leader G-Dragon was accused for smoking marijuana. Something which could have finished BigBang! But no they persevered and came out stronger. Here is what the youngest Seungri posted in his Me2day account after Daesung’s accident. “I want it to be 5 people ^^ for the rest of my life” along with this picture..

Sometimes guys have less to say but their words speak volumes! Girls will be girls and this comes from an expert who has been in a fair share of cat fights…LOL!!

Moral of the story: It is dangerous to have too many boys or girls in a group!

It’s time for some BigBang Burger!!!

BigBang members are some of the goofiest idols I have seen! They remind me of Suju so much! But BigBang’s goofiness has a complete hip-hop feeling if there is such a thing possible!

Apparently BB loves burgers! And human burgers at that!

Here are the photos of 5 lovable men kids who love to play around..


This is a history of their burgers from the year 2010 to 2012!

Amazing fact is that it is always Panda Seungri who ends up at the bottom of the stack..Poor RiRi! Being the youngest is really tough!

Its official guys being the maknae among all the grown-up hyungs is hard and back-breaking LOL!!

Fans reaction on seeing their human burgers over the years…

Ya lets PARTY HARD with a BANG!!! Gogogogo!
