[NYSLT] Ulala Session - Beautiful Night



Back in May, Ulala Session released this MV. To be honest, I never paid attention to them until I heard this song from them that was featured in Bridal Mask. I decided to check out some of their other songs, and I found Beautiful Night. Had I known Park Han Byul was in it, I would have watched it the day it came out.

The video starts out with one of the members singing a ballad song to the bride and groom. Halfway through singing the song, the guy notices Park Han Byul in attendance. The first thing he thought was "God damn, I fapped to her a lot last year when she was in that group Ocean World (she's the one wearing the yellow bikini.) Fuck singing to the bride and groom."

What ensues after is a crazy ass MV. Ulala Session basically told SM to fuck off with their dancing in a box like a robot MVs. This is the antithesis to most of SM's MVs in the past few years. It's just a bunch of guys crashing a wedding with dancing and an addictive song.

There are some great moments in the MV. I loved the moment at 1:58 where they were dancing in front of the bride and groom. The look on the groom's face was "I'll fucking rip your balls off and shove them down your throat and I'll rip your dick off and shove it up your ass," yet he starts dancing along with them soon after. Also, Park Han Byul's bodywave at 4:42 was cute.

Ulala Session couldn't have debuted a better time. In the past three years, Kpop has become too manufactured. There have been eight million idols that have debuted in about two million groups in that time span, with so many songs that sound similar since all of the groups rely on the same seven-eight producers in Kpop. From what I know, Ulala Session composes their own music, and it shows, since their music is going against the general trend in Kpop. This song proved that a group can make a catchy song without using a hook, without using autotune, without using dubstep, and without making a complicated dance that took the idols two weeks to master while they practiced the dance for 16 hours a day.

Lee Soo Man didn't agree with my review.

    7. If BB are true artist, then so are WG and SJ, dbsk, 2pm, Shinee. Apparently, if your produced a song, you're an artist! Sorry 2ne1, you're not included! And I thought that one song "Andante" Minzy's older brother Henry Lau produced was good. And "Boyfriend," from Yenny and 'Colors~Melody and Harmony from fellow slappy brother Chunfayce wuz qt. Of course, only individual members composed these songs.

    8. Truest artist~

      All ur opppas and unnies stay plastikk!

      Ahahaha and lol at 2ne1

      Why dont 2ne1 meember get some solo.
      I think minzy could do great

      Delete
    9. Oppars and unnie is truer artist than Leonardo Decrapio XD
      if oppa is plastik, why they ugly!!!!! STFU bish they lost weight!!1!

      Minzy is the best singer and dancer and body. The chick from Rania would've done better in 2ne1 than Rania, which was a flop. Srsly, have you heard any news from them!

      Delete
    10. ^ Man Tits, it was Jooyi. Bitch got a bitchin voice that can front Hyorin's and Ailee's. Too bad RaNia has an all-singing line up, yet is way underrated. They're having a comeback around 2nd half this year. Crossing fingers

      Minzy has the best voice quality and body in 2ne1.
      SuJu, BB, WG and all other groups who 'produced' at least one song are the true form of K-Pop = apex of artistic incarnation.
      Sohee is still dog-faced no matter what you do.
      Siwon is a closeted in-denial puritan.
      G is Druggin.
      After 5 years of SNSD existence, they've never been more plastic than ever. Power of 9! <3
      2AM Changmin is flaming like Jokwon.
      We demand the truth from T-ara.
      AND OPPA DIDN'T MEAN IT!!!!!!!!11111

      Delete
    11. Yes i did meant Minzy has the best body and singing in 2ne1not overall in kpop. Maybe im delusional at this point idgaf. And hopeful that Spica and Rania will get more rocogniton.

      Delete
    12. @titz : lol lost weight at the nose jawline and eyebrows too rite hahaha

      @sujunk: yeah aprently bigbang started it(for idol group). Ever since they debut.
      I herd gd got 115 songs under him
      Seungri 40
      All the other members have 10-20++


      Gdruggin oppar is the truest form of artist in the kpop biz!
      With weed comes good music!
      Itz true, bob marley doesnt lie!!!!1

      Whats the definition of true artist?
      Im confuse now. Too much kpop

      Become a fan because of music isntead of face?

      Then daesung and taeyang are the true musicians then!!

      Delete
    13. Oh i will check that rania gurl out

      Delete
    14. Spica is fucking awesome. Need more songs from them.

      SJ went through a phase in 2006/2007 [don't remember] when they released cute catchy songs and they were just messing around in the MVs instead of having pretentious choreo and dancing in boxes (Haengbok, Wonderboy etc. The Attack on the Pin-up Boys era was a good one for them)

      Delete
    15. Stfu biatch they are natual goddess ok? Bish.

      I thought "It's You" and Sorry Sorry Answer was the best mv SJ
      Not really a fan of BB but i really liked How Gee. Pretty good since Koreans cant speak simple english. Back when I was going through a black phase Big Bang were my fave while they went through the ghetto whatever
      Big Bang is one of the few group in kpop that dont hav useless members. unless you count Seungr

      Delete
    16. I dunno. i hate him and all. But now the useless member is top tbh.
      Top cant dance lol
      Maknae >>>> top

      Delete
    17. I always thought when Gd didnt have those ugly hair or clothes he can b better looking than TOP. Which he is. and Top got PS on his jaw so hee no true artist

      Delete

  5. "There have been eight million idols that have debuted in about two million groups in that time span, with so many songs that sound similar since all of the groups rely on the same seven-eight producers in Kpop."

    ^ Oh, sorry, don't you mean T-ara? Bitches been in the industry for 3 years and not a single song they released sounded unique even from those of (ex)labelmates [keyword: Davichi, SeeYa]. Good thing, though, Don't Leave Me is their best yet. CCM finally perfected the same rehashed composition over the span of their entire careers.

    1. Too many groups rely on E-Tribe, Shinsadong Tiger, and Brave Brothers. For most of SM's songs, Yoo Young Jin composed most of them. Teddy does almost everything for 2NE1. JYP composes everything for his groups. Sweetune composes almost everything by Kara and Infinite. Kpop needs more producers in general.

      Delete
    2. SM uses a lot of varied song-writers though don't they? I'm not the biggest SM fan, but I'm pretty sure they do that.

      Delete
    3. They started buying songs from Western producers in recent years, but Yoo Young Jin has composed the majority of SM's title tracks.

      Delete
    4. It's not about the limited number of producers. It's about how monotonous songs have been produced for one group or artist. Tbqh, YG and SM songs have been the most diverse in terms of genre and musicality. CCM is the worst.

      Delete
    5. Yoo Young Jin does most of SM's better songs (What is Love, Neorago I think), but they've started messing around with Teddy Riley etc

      Delete
    6. Teddy Riley helped produce what is love.

  9. Why don't groups just start start stealing scandinavian pop songs again like S.E.S did? Dreams Come True was the shit.

  11. i knew ulala session from their performance in superstark, they sang Lee Seung Chul's song (actually i watched it in youtube). i was amazed, all of them can sing well, not just one of them but all of them. I can feel totally different emotion they put in their upbeat song and in their melo/ sad song, just listen to Beautiful Night and OST Bridal Mask, they nailed those songs, and two completely different emotions they put on them.
