SNSD and subunits, I never thought I would legitimately see the day. Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun say "Fuck off Forever9SONEs" as they make their eponymous debut with Twinkle.
First of all, I just wanna say that I fucking love everything about this subunit. The best parts of SNSD without the filler or the troll(s) clogging up my view of the fab members (read: Seohyun). And best of all, it's a huge shit in the face on Forever9 stans whom I loathe. Ah, good times.
|"LOLOL Look at all those pressed SONEs!!"|
Anyways, this MV is a sort of "day-in-the-life-of" storyline MV with some dance bits shoved in there for good measure. Opening up with a paparazzi sequence to establish TaeTiSeo's rich and celebrity status, this particular MV revolves around their fabulous daily lives. Sort of like High School Musical's montage for Sharpay and her glam life. At least I think that's her name, it's been ages since I've seen that shit.
|Not sure what's worse, this or the High School Musical equivalent.|
And how come only Seohyun doesn't get stockings?
|Oh Seohyun, I love you but you can't fake surprise for shit.|
The dance bits of the song are incredibly lame and horrific to behold. Quite possibly the shittiest choreo for a song I've ever seen. When you come down to it though, it makes sense. Of the three, only Seohyun is a proficient dancer, and she can't carry the group by herself. Taeyeon's too lazy to give a shit and Tiffany can't dance for shit, so I'm sure they had to tailor the dance to their level because there were no shits left to give.
|What the fuck is this flying bird, deer antler, window-wiping |
headshoulderkneesandtoes bullshit dance?
|EXO TRYING TO STEAL SOSHI SPOTLIGHT OMG|
GTFO I'M GOING TO BLACKOCEAN YOUR SHIT AT SMTOWN
|Is okay though. I got this sexy sex gif of Seohyun, so I'm satisfied.|
Anyways, the song itself is pretty solid. It's a funky song highly reminiscent of Lady Marmalade, so longtime SONEs will get a kick out of the TaeNy concert solo remix featuring Seohyun. The three best vocalists with the most pleasant tones really get a chance to shine with this song, showing exactly who does the heavy lifting in SNSD. There's no forced raps, no random dance breaks, no filler. However, the reason I don't particularly like this song is because it features Taeyeon and Seohyun trying to reach for notes out of their usual range when they do their vocal runs at the end. It's very grating on the ears, and it totally kills the song for me. If I had to use a vulgar sullifagism... It'd be like fapping to a sexy Bora fancam, and right when she bends over to expose some juicy cleavage/ass, a wild Hyorin appears and she's derpin all in your face as your arousal goes flaccid/dry (whatever is relevant to you).
|Affirmative action ain't dead, niggaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas~|
+ Lady Marmalade + annoying vocal runs + SNSD.
I give this song a 3.5/5
