8 Things I Hate About 2ne1's "Falling in Love"


I did not fall in love.





Here are eight reasons why:

1. Three, two, one, shit
"Falling in Love" assaults your ears right out of the gate. Why would someone think it was a good idea to include an incomprehensible intro in the music video? It was like a warning of shit to come.


2. More generic CL raps

CL's raps sound like they were taken straight out of "The Baddest Female," or any other song in which she raps for that matter.


3. Basically everything about the song itself



4. This guy


It was refreshing to see so many guys in the background of a girl group video. Turns out, they're all fug, though. FFS.


5. Dara looking like an escaped mental patient

No, I won't follow you to that abandoned warehouse.


6. Cheap set

How you gonna make a beach scene and not go to the beach? Lame. Maybe the producers could have dipped into their
$4 million gold spray paint budget to find some money to shoot on location instead.


7. Bom


I hate to bring up Bom's appearance, because she (and the rest of the group for that matter) gets so much hate for how she looks. Frankly, though, it's gotten to the point where it's hard to look at Bom. 

It's like a PSA for keeping yourself natural.


8. Awkward end shot


The music video ends with a shot of three of the group's members looking awkward as fuck. Maybe it's some sort of dating strategy. Everyone looks as weird as possible so CL looks fantastic by comparison, thus getting the fug boy of her choosing. Way to help a female out, girls.

  1. dara looks like an albino
    cl looks like a human cinnamon bun
    bom looks like cher
    minzy looks dull
    do their stylists hate them, or is it a jeremy scott creation again?

    okay so the song isn't as bad if you mute cl's parts, it also has a nice beat so overall it was an okay song.

  3. I'm suprised that they were able to get Johnny Yong Bosch to be in this MV.

  4. I couldn't get 20 seconds into the video. What the actual fuck was that. Just no. Juuuuustttt no.

  5. All I actually liked in the song was Minzy singing... What the fuck am I saying and how could any label let Minzy be the best singer in a group?....

    1. Minzy was running that shit, the others were extras and the song is typical horrible dance hall.

    2. Minzy is their only saving gracr, and i loved her part#

    3. @u-know
      to bad YG to much of a bitch to give miss. Minzy a solo

      That would have been better than CL's solo

      Delete
  6. why do they look so awkward together?

    ReplyDelete
  7. So should they go back to their I am the best days? and kpop is lot less segregated than jpop in general. Especially if it begins a and ends with 8

    2. I think 2011 was my fave 2ne1 time. Lots of solid comebacks. Their debut era was pretty good, too, though.

  10. Yeah, huge disappointment.
    I liked their singles up to incl. I love you, which was super great. Also found their 2NE1tv really entertaining.
    But with CL doing really ultra-chlichéed generic "gangsta" rap, the long break and THIS thing... I feel as if 2NE1 is over, which saddens me.

  12. dara is like 27 years old they need to stop pretending she's 12

    1. I know what you mean

      normally pretending to be 12 really does it for me

      Delete
    2. How about also pretending she has a hair line? That'd be nice too...

      Delete
    3. I thought she looked like a cheesy 90's girl group member I kinda liked it tbh

      Delete
  13. Song is meh, and yeah, the first 20 secs of the song is the worst part, way to scare your audience from the start. Song is meh, CL raps is annoying, your usual 2ne1 crap, really. However, I gotta say this song is a bit better than how though it would came out.

    BEG AND AILEE SAVE US

    1. I am so excited for BEG and Ailee. I was excited for 2ne1, too, but that faded within those first seconds. ;_;

      Delete
    2. beg hits have actual credibility as musicians and i like their music occasionally (cleansing cream) but in general songs like sixth sense are just overkill and i hope they do something like what they were doing before abracadabra

      Delete
    3. I'm not a big fan of "Cleansing Cream," but "My Style" might be my all-time fave kpop song.

      Delete
    4. i love my style too, despite it being a rehash of L.O.V.E. 08-09 BEG was so good.

      Delete
    5. Abracadabra imo is such a waste of their vocal talent, I prefer the songs like Cleansing cream or Sixth sense.

      omg made so much errors in my first post.

      Delete
    6. If you have every k-pop song with members "showing their vocal talent" then k-pop just becomes a big tedious wank-fest of vocalists constantly showing off who has better skills than the next person. Yawn.

    7. "If you have every k-pop song with members "showing their vocal talent" then k-pop just becomes a big tedious wank-fest of vocalists constantly showing off who has better skills than the next person. Yawn."

      This, which is exactly why I only like 08-09 BEG. Abracadabra and Sign were devoid of shit like this.

      I used to think vocal ability was really important until I started paying attention to singers performing the national anthem before sporting events. Every single time I was thinking "Shut the fuck up and sing the song how it was supposed to be sung. Don't add your stupid-ass ad libs all over the song. You're ruining the fucking song and it's the national anthem!"

      Delete
    8. ^^^^^^^

      which is why i hope their comeback is nothing like sixth sense. too many high notes for no reason in a song that is otherwise kind of haphazard

      Delete
    9. That might be true, I guess it's just my preference.

    10. 08-08 BEG. the next periode is ony "one summer night's dream (?)" for me.

    11. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAzppvv6xjw BEG's new track is good. Would be nice if I hear JeA tho...

    14. Daniel, the genre doesn't choose you. Normal, thinking people choose the artist and the songs. It also doesn't imply that the only Korean music people here are patronizing is idol pop. Heck, there's also the non-idol in the pop department.

      The idol scene isn't a gigantic conspiracy complex where all ent companies connive to slowly kill viewers' artistic and musical standards through visually-convincing presentations.

      Delete
    15. (cont'd) It's those one-dimensional asshats who make you think we're all for the idol pop because there's this greater plan from above if we glorify all oppas.

      Delete
    16. Okay, I admit that was REALLY poorly worded and did a terrible job of getting my message across. I was basically trying to say the same thing as Kpopalypse and Anti Kpop-Fangirl. That's the jist of what I was trying to say, I have no fucking idea why I went bat-shit and things went completely out of hand. And thank you for not shitting on me. I means a lot. Sorry for being a dumbfuck on the internet at times.

  14. I remember hearing this beat intro the "I Love You" live stages last year (remember the "what about the poor animals on stage" controversy) with CL rapping over the top with a parrot on her shoulder. I thought at the time "that sounds okay". I dunno about adding the reggae stuff to it though, that's what kills it for me, 2NE1 always fail when they do their reggae-lite thing.

  15. Look at Bom at that "Awkward End Shot". That's how I look like when I shave my moe. :/

  16. CL's rap really bothered me in this song. At Minzy's part, you've got some nice, soft vocals and then suddenly this piercing voice just ruins the whole feel. D:

  17. Is it just me or did Bom look so fucking similar to Seo in Young in that photo?

    1. Not just you. I also see the resemblance.

  19. The Guy's Nose, CL Tights, Dara and Bom themself scared me.

    and it is just me, or Bom really look a like Refurbished Version (but still failed) Senior Singer Noh Sayeon?

    ReplyDelete
  20. This would be a pretty good song if it only had Minzy and Bom's parts

    ReplyDelete
  21. I actually find the song to be pretty inoffensive by 2NE1's standards and suited for summertime (much better than 4minute's "What's Your Name"); meaning, I wouldn't mind if it came on at a bar or at the beach or something along those lines. The MV was whatever, but damn...Bom is looking really scary, like Jocelyn Wildenstein status. And it's really a shame that Minzy is so unattractive because she's honestly the most talented member in 2NE1.

    Also, shame on you Fany... Lee Soo Hyuk is not fug! I'm a fag from NYC so I obviously have much higher standards than your vagina-having self, and I would totally sit on his face.

  22. tthis song is too cheap to belong top a YG artist, but I bet this is gonna be an all-kill and win 76573647467834 inkigayo and mcountdown trophies,

  27. This mv was such a cheap let down. And the worst part is YG promised a new mv each month til October and I am not looking forward to this.

    CL is not a gangsta. She doesn't have swag. And she never held a gun so idk why she made that sound effect and hand motion. And so god help me I will punch EVERYONE who says she is the best female kpop rapper. Go listen to LE or Jucy's mixtapes and then tell me that. And I will slap you if you continue being blinded by the '2NE1/YG' name and refuse to accept she isnt number 1.

    Wtf is up with Dara all together in this MV. If she wasnt wearing the ugly outfits and hair styles then I would have missed her easily. She barely had lines. Which isnt new as this song was like a CL & Minzy ft. Bom song.

  28. This song had no right being released as a title track for a major act's comeback. It just wasn't strong enough. Furthermore, this has to be the cheapest and most unpolished video 2NE1 has had to date.

    And would someone please give me a SOLID argument as to why Dara is in 2NE1 or performing as an idol at all? I'd really like to hear one! If she's supposed to be the hott one in group, why is she more often the worst styled? Its like they do that shit on purpose. If I didn't already think that Dara was useless, this video cemented for me. I second the comment: YG needs to cut this chick her check and let her be on her way.
