T-ara's back to give you another seizure
What a disappointment. Japan was supposed to make this MV sexier. It's nowhere near as bad as the teasers that were released last week, but it's still a disappointment. I was hoping for so much more, but no. The first problem was that this was filmed in Korea....so we're still stuck with the same director and the same asshole editors. I'd seriously like to look at girls' faces for more than .00025 seconds. Is that so much to fucking ask from these assholes? It just goes to show that the most incompetent CEO hires the most incompetent directors and editors.
There's supposed to be a story I suppose. Does someone need to be high to understand what the fuck is going on? I've watched this MV like ten times and I still have no idea what the fuck the MV is supposed to be about.
As for the song, from what I'm hearing, it translates better to Japanese than some other Kpop songs have. It's a good thing the original had some autotune so the autotune here doesn't really bother me (and it shouldn't, T-ara has shit Japanese. Be thankful for the autotune.)
While this may sound overly negative, I did like a few things about the MV.
1) More Soyeon. Obviously.
2) Eunjung's chest popping.
3) Barely any Hwayoung.
4) Sounds like the original line distribution is the same. I was fearing that they'd add a terrible rap for Hwayoung.
"I Bo Peep Bo Peep like dis, I Bo Peep Bo Peep like dat, Bo Peep dis, Bo Peep dat, YEAH!"
This is the song that made me a fan of 6-ara, much superior to the 7-ara of today. I was hoping that 7-ara wouldn't ruin this song, and thankfully they didn't, because it's pretty hard to ruin BPBP since it isn't great in the first place. I've listened to the original version nearly 1,000 times and most of it is due to the dance, the outfits, and the girls. I actually like the beat to the song, and the girls don't sound bad in the studio version, but BPBP was the song where T-ara started to really suck live singing wise. Overall, stick with the Korean version, both the MV (19+ version) and the song.
