[MV Review] Lee Hi - Rose



Short review: What a boring piece of shit.
Longer review after the jump.


Leave it up to YG to overhype someone to no end. This is the first song from Lee Hi by herself that I have listened to. I listened to her on Epik High's It's Cold and she was the reason why the song was awful for me. Epik High's It's Cold was a song similar to what they did during Pieces and Lovescream. However, what made songs such as Pieces of You great was that Jisun added to the song. On the other hand, Lee Hi made me hate It's Cold. I had no incentive to ever listen to Lee Hi's songs because she's fucking boring.



The next problem I have with Lee Hi is that she looks like one of those Mattel troll dolls. Her features are way too big for her face, making her look like a deformed anime character.



Yang Hyun Suk has used this formula with 2NE1 and Lee Hi. If you look at 2NE1 and Lee Hi, neither is attractive. To compensate for 2NE1's boringness, YG hired Jeremy Scott to reduce that factor. For Lee Hi, there really isn't anything to do, so the hype has been increased.

Rose is a very unmemorable song. I haven't listened to it twice while writing this review and nothing sticks except the reference to Poison's Every Rose Has Its Thorn. Lee Hi's voice has as much emotion in it as Bom's face has the ability to move. Which is close to nonexistent. In order to properly review the song, it would require me to listen to it a couple of more times, but then I would end up falling asleep while writing the review.

Score: 1/10

The only positive thing about this piece of shit is the reference to the Poison song. Aside from that, the bland-as-fuck singing coupled with a forgettable instrumental doesn't entice me to want to listen to the song. I know Lee Hi will end up topping the charts if she hasn't already, which shows how great of a manipulator Yang Hyun Suk is. Hell, he made Daesung famous, so anything is possible from YG.

  1. She's never had anything interesting to date. I still like 2NE1 songs more than hers

  2. I loved Lee Hi's songs before Rose. Rose is okay and it had amazing English, but yeah, it's not my cup of tea.

  3. I think it's exactly the opposite, it's her face that it's too big.
    She is really very emotionless and wooden, maybe she feels too uncomfortable, idk what's wrong with her and it's a shame. I don't know if she also sings that way since i don't understand Korean but I'll take your word. She sounds boring and her songs are boring.
    There are also other emotionless idols out there like Soyeon for example, with her creepy as fuck fish eyes, Seobot with the enormous cheeks, and Ueebot with her huge face, and they are quite popular, so i guess Koreans don't mind.

    1. Koreans get ps and end up looking average
      See: 95% of k celebs

    2. I think they end up looking plastic, fake and downright creepy. They just don't seem to get when they need to stop.
      It's true a lot of ugly idols get tons of ps just to get decent looking and some even fail at that(like Hyoyeon).

      Delete
    3. Emotionless and wooden? She would make a great partner for Slappy in the Goosebumps series :)

      Delete
    4. I think Seohyun gets like, injections in her cheeks...maybe botox? Either way sometimes her whole face just looks really bloated, shiny and distorted; that shit ain't cute but SM seems to be hell bent on making her look 18 forever.

      I agree, most kpop stars have PS and look basic. And the ones that didn't are over-hyped for being natural and still basic.

      At least Lee Hi can sing, more than I can say for 98% of kpop idols.

      Delete
    5. @Scatter Hahahaha!! At least Slappy can smile!

    6. @OrangeDoodle Her voice is great but she is wasting herself by being so bad at everything else. She should try become a real singer and not an idol but that bastard Yang Hyun Suk only cares for the money this "girl-next-door-with-great-voice" type of idol can make. I expect people to get tired of her soon.
      Poor Seobot... It seems like all SNSD members will end up looking like Bom sooner or later. Tiffany seems to be already there.

      Delete
    7. Are you serious ?
      The only "Bom-like thing" she did recently was having dark red hair.
      Tiffany's still hot. I'd smack that ass with my dick, if you know what I'm sayin'.

      Delete
    8. STFU Seohyun is a QT!

      Tiffany has a big nose wonder why that hasnt been fixed-oh, right, korean plastic surgeons are shitty. She'll look like Jung Ah or that chick from Iris 2.

      Delete
    9. yeah Tiffany is just awkward looking over-all. I think she's cute only when she smiles. Her nose is big and her face is kinda long and then her body is whack to so it's just a lose-lose all around. She should go back to the look she had during INTW days. She was at her best then. No one said Seohyun wasn't cute. She is, but she has her off days where she looks like a bloated, oily faced troll.

      @tele_Tabi I think Tiffany, Taeyeon and Jessica are making their way rather quickly. Taeyeon was at her prime during Genie, I have no idea what happened from there. Tiffany looks terrible and Jessica...well, she's still got those huge ass teeth and she always looks like she's melting.

      Delete
    10. @No WTF? Besides Hyogre, who i assume is the group's pet or something, i always wondered why they put a girl like Tiffany in the group. Her face looks old, her body is squarish, and no matter how weight she looses she always end up looking fat next to the others (not that she is). I always found her very very ugly and unfitting with the cutie concept of SNSD. And now she became all "Bomish" too.

      @U-know SM tries its best to un-cute her. It's not my fault.

      @OrangeDoodle None of them will be able to avoid it. Ok, except maybe Yoona since she is already popular for her looks. Thankfully, Sunny's face looks still normal.

      Delete
    11. I agree that Taeyeon (as I've spazzed out about that topic some articles back, in the comments) and also Jessica look different than what they used to and in a way I don't like.
      But Tiffany never struck me as becoming or being ugly. It's clear she had some mild PS done before she left the trainee days, though.

      "Sunny's face looks still normal" - Dude, her face is unbearable without heavy makeup. Just google "sunny no makeup" and you'll see how utter FUG she is.
      Taeyeon (until recently) at least looks pretty cute without (a lot of) makeup on. I actually prefer(ed) her that way. Comparing those photos to her school photos, she looked nearly identical.
      At least we can agree on Hyoglodite looking weird with and without makeup on. She's become even more bizarre looking in the past year or so.

      I do agree that SNSD overall looked better during the times before Paparazzi. After that was somehow a sharp turning point imho.

      I agree. Sunny looks like an ahjummah without makeup.

      Delete
    13. STFU Sunny is a QT.

      Sunny is not ugly or pretty. Average, with a sprinkle of cute really. She just needs the long dark hair! At least she is not as ugly as Jessicka or Hyo.

      Yoona is looking uglier with her squinty little eyes and puny little face and giraffe neck.


      They need to leave Seo face alone, she is cute just the www ay she is.

      Delete
    14. I never saw pics of Jessica without makeup, because I never cared about her too much.
      However, with makeup, Jessica looks better than Sunny. And not just a bit.

      Yoona's long neck is good for one thing, if you catch my drift. *badummtsch*

      Delete
    15. @No I never said that Sunny is ugly or pretty (i find her cute), i just said she doesn't look plastic.
      When i saw a SNSD MV for the first time i thought Jessica was the prettiest, but she has such an over the top bitch face and without make up on she looks quite bad. Still, she seems to have had less bottox than Tiffany and Taeyeon. I still find her one of the best looking in MVs.

      Delete
    16. Hey, watever u say.
      For me its Taeyeon>Seohyun>Sunny>Sooyoung>Tiffany>Yuri>Jessica=Yoona>Hyoyeon

      Delete
    17. I tried but it's very difficult to decide who i like the best when their faces change all the time. I think they looked their best in RDR era (except Hyoyeon of course, she is a tad better now). But Hyoyeon, Tiffany and Yuri (very large fat-looking face) always look fugly to me.

      Delete
    18. You put yuri and hyogre on the same level?? You bastard

      Delete
    19. @RealJW Nooooo. Hyogre is in a whole other level.
      But i still have the right to find Yuri fugly, just because SM thought it was a good idea to put one really ugly member so that all the others will look like godesses, it doesn't mean that they're gonna fool me.

  4. thank goodness you didn't make any sexual remarks about her she's still a minor you know.

    1. With her face, she could turn any sex addict into an asexual person. i got more aroused with the flower head piece than her.

    2. I guess that explains why she looks so... unusual with all that makeup and ewww-y contacts on.

  6. EEEEEVERY ROOOSE HAS ITS THORNS



    I liked the video, but the song was, indeed, boring.

  7. I kept waiting for the soldiers to advance on her position and shoot her in the face. Instead they got artillery-shelled by Lee Hi's gaze or whatever the fuck. So let down. Pretty dull musically and Lee Hi is back to looking comatose in her videos again but at least it's not another fucking blues song.

    ReplyDelete
  8. At least she can sing. I mean the video was boring to no end. The song itself is sappy and over-dramatic but at least she doesn't sound like a starved cat eating for the first time like some other kpop idols I know.

  9. I liked 1 2 3 4, and this wasnt that bad, and yes im getting quite sick of her now.

    2. its how frequently she released the songs, if they would have released the song in longer intervals it might keep me interested, but not this, especially with all the hype.

    3. Excuse me, but what hype? She's a flop.

    4. Eh I thought she was quite famous (among my friends at least), for winning that singing thingy.

  10. There's no denying that she's a good singer with a great voice. But honestly, she doesn't have any charisma at all. She's expressionless when she's singing and I really can't take her seriously.

  11. It sound a lot like It hurts. But while that song was great in its simplicity thanks to good production and much more interesting vocals, this song lacks any of those so it just comes out as bland. And bland is the worst thing a song can be.
    Also there's no other way of putting it, she's fucking ugly. She just looks so derpy

    ReplyDelete
  12. well, her fans attacked me on youtube when i said she's stiff and boring. one of them went as far as saying she knows lee hi. HAHHAHAHAAHHA, good times... good times.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Song is blah…

    Don't have anything to say about her face… mainly because I don't feel like being a bitch and I hate calling people ugly. Also, really, not great looking myself either (looks at emo prof pic) yeah definitely not

    ReplyDelete
  14. Soul album and soul voice? I can't believe so many people fall for yg's shit. she sounds like 2ne1 and their way of singing is argh. This man (yg) is a terrorist.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Terrible song from terrible artist under a terrible label.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I can't understand the attraction towards Lee Hi. Vocally she is predictable and visually an eye sore of awkward face gestures.

    I wish Gummy made a comeback not the Mattel troll doll looking cunt

    ReplyDelete
  17. She isn't a terrible vocalist, but she certainly doesn't have the looks, charm, or charisma to be a soloist. I wonder if I would've liked her more in Supearls?

    ReplyDelete
  18. fuck it, since it aint gonna balance the hate anyways, for a a 16 year old, i like her voice, she got soul, i havent followed any of the hype, but if she keeps progessing i hope she reaches her potential and make some really good music, she reminds me of Joss Stone

  20. It's weird. I realize that the song is very bland and boring, but I still like it. Sometimes you just have to submit to it I guess.
    Also, I think she's very attractive in an unique way.

  21. "Lee Hi's voice has as much emotion in it as Bom's face has the ability to move."
    THIS. So true. The biggest problem I have with Lee Hi is that she has no fucking emotion whatsoever.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Actually the song isn't all that bad, or at least it's the first one of hers I could bare to download. I like the lyrics, which is why till this day I'm looking for some good soul to properly cover this song in english.
    As for Lee Hi, "overhyped" is SUCH an understatement. No one would give two shits about her if it wasnt for YG. Sure she has a nice tone and can hold a few notes, but holy lord jesus fuck is she boring. I've seen some horribly expressionless singers before, but Lee Hi takes the cake. I fall asleep listening to her, I fall asleep looking at her, and I fall asleep listening AND watching her live (no YG, no matter how many props you put up Lee Hi still has the charisma of a rock.) 2ne1 aren't much better but at least they try to entertain us. As for her songs, they're wasting them on her - 1234 and whatever are meant to be sung by singers who can actually give life to the music with their voices.
    And looks wise, she'd be pretty if she wasnt so fucking stoic. Did they ever teach this girl to smile? Maybe she hung around Bom too much and now she cant open her mouth properly.

  23. Geez..You said like you can do better than leehi,You guys keep babling bad thing about leehi is not like her money keep decreasing unlike you guy.. what do u get for doing this? dignity? money? populority ?Shame on you !

  24. All of you bash on her for the song (which i found soothing rather than boring)
    and her looks.
    but i'm thinking that the chances are probably that NONE or at least very few of you can belt out notes like her's, has even half as good of a voice
    or seriously are as or any more attractive than her.
    give the poor girl a break she's only lie 15/ 16

    and yeah her acting isn't good but she's a singer NOT an actor... so it shouldn't matter...
    listen to her voice that's what its for it music not a fucking movie
