Kara's Step MV
Okay, now that I got that out of my system, let's get to the review.
The outfits are hit or miss, depending on the person's taste. Some people will hate the blue outfits that have a lot of color to them and other will hate their individual outfits. Others may hate the black/blue and yellow outfits. Some people will bitch about how they barely wore those dresses in the MV. My main complaint: not enough skin. Come on DSP. Come on. Though, can't blame you. The girl groups have to dress like the fucking Amish if they don't want their MV to be banned.
"Their choreography is so easy!" So? It's fucking Kara. But right, it's okay if your oppas from another group have a simplistic choreography. I forgot. My fucking bad. Anyway, they shake their hips a lot so I like it. I would have liked more ass shots DSP. Just saying.
As for the song itself, I only have one problem. The Kamilia in me is like "Shut the fuck up, nothing is wrong with that part." The Korean music fan in me is like "Yes, there is a problem asshole. It's my biggest pet peeve about idol songs." I'm talking about the rap part.
The Kamilia in me: Shit man, just compare the raps to previous songs. It's much better than the rap in Honey.
The AKF in me: Dude, it's idol rapping. It blows. Come the fuck on. That shit needs to be eradicated from idol music. Plus Nicole can sing (compared to some of the other members) so it's not like she needs to rap. The energy in the part of the song is good, but the rapping is still bad.
Kamilia: Fuck you.
AKF: No, fuck you.
But there's a bigger problem after the rap. It suddenly goes to the slowest part of the song right after that. I feel like the chorus should have been stuck in between those two parts. Speaking of the chorus, it's easily the best part of the song. And I'm fucking happy this wasn't a hook song. We haven't had as many hook songs this year. Good going Kpop, because the hook song needs to be benched for ten years or so.
This is also the first MV where I had no problems with a member's appearance. Usually one member gets trolled by the stylist but none of them really bothered me this time. Plus there's some Gyuri cleavage (check tumblr for that shit, I'm too lazy to go look for it and post it yet on the other hand I was able to type all of this filler in the time I could have went to tumblr to find a pic of her cleavage. Oh well) so that's a plus.
Step is one of my favorite idol songs of 2011. Yeah, and in case you're wondering, I haven't listened to many idol songs this year.
THE MV IS OUT?!?!?!
