Tonight Baby we Party with Butterflies' and Love

With Exid making their debut with "Whoz that girl" once again I feel forced to bring up the topic on the usually (There has been some exceptions) horrendous use of english in k-pop songs. So far I've yet to fully understand why english is so popular.

I'm not doing a review on Exid (mainly because I hate doing MV reviews I've discovered). The english lyrics of this song pay their respects to Gwen Stefani, I was waiting for them to start singing about bananas (if they had I'd have probably enjoyed the song more). Either way the english lyrics are as follows:

whoz that girl
tell me whoz that girl
whoz that girl
tell me whoz that girl


(no) i never act like that
i aint no holla back girl
but tell me whoz that girl


just show me
that is all i need


i'm out
out of ur love
baby just go get ur girl

Without getting into spelling errs and the fact that they are trying to be gangster with the lyrics while having a music video that plays on the cuter side, my only question is "Do they know what a holla back girl is?".  To me that middle sections translates to "Hey no, I'm not a whore but who the fuck does she think she is?" which essentially doesn't make any sense cause the end goes "I'm not the right girl for you,try the other one". I don't know what to think. It just doesn't make sense. I'll have to read the translated lyrics to get the full picture I suppose :/

On a second note (still talking english) I've decided that the following words should no longer be found in kpop lyrics because they are way overused:

Tonight,
Party,
Butterfly,
Love, and
Baby

Anyone have words that just make there skin crawl when sung in kpop songs?

  2. english isn't "popular" it's just forced on other peoples because of imperialism
    so that's why you can't really make fun of kpop when their english is bad, we (assuming you're from the west) forced the language on them

    they probably butcher it on purpose just to spite us

    1. Easily the most overrated K-pop release of all time, SNSD's 'The Boys' proves that it really is indeed possible to move vinyl on star power alone. The eponymous title track is a confused mess of semi-coherent English lyrics, lazy composition and half-assed electronica that does nothing to show what the nine ladies are capable of. That said, no one in the industry is even sure of what SNSD is capable of now: for better or for worse, they are no longer in the same league as their music-making brethren.

      I fucking love Soyeon. Just saying.

    3. I thought all asian girls have hairy pussies, never knew Soyeon would bother to spare some valuable time from her hectic schedule and probably sacrifices some of her sleep to shave her pussy. I am impressed.

  11. Hey, OP, nice job with the perfect spelling/grammar in your article where you complain about perfect spelling and speaking English properly.

    ....

    LOLNO. It's called spellcheck. Use it. (Seriously - how can you mis-spell Gwen Stefani's name that badly?)
