[MV Review] SNSD - My Oh My



Last month when I was planning to review this but saw that Zaku had a draft for this review that he obviously never finished SNSD released a new music video, My Oh My, in Japan. Is it better than I Got A Boy? Would it be really fucking pathetic if it was somehow worse than IGAB? We'll find out.


Following up Galaxy Supernova, which I thought was good but had something missing, My Oh My follows the same formula. I like it, but there's something exciting missing from the song to make it stand out. I'm assuming that this is because the Japanese don't know how to make a song that is three minutes long, being used to having five minutes for a song. I feel like this song is missing a strong bridge. The chorus and refrain are alright. Could be better, but it could be worse, so I have no real complaints there. However, the song isn't why you should be watching the music video.

It's nice to see SNSD wearing some normal clothing in Japan, as I would expect them to wear bandanas with flopping tentacle wieners dangling around to match the high school outfits that are wearing. SNSD, you need to capture the otaku market in Japan, and I see no better way to do it than this.

The MV is standard, but it works, as the MV follows a coherent storyline. Seohyun brings one of the gal pals with her to a cafe or some shit and find that their friend's boyfriend is a two-timing dildo-licking-faggot-UCHO(Upstanding Citizen of Homosexual Orientation). They set out to teach the boyfriend a lesson, but first they have to change into some sexy (for SNSD standards) outfits and dance while they 'educate'/torture the boyfriend.



Meanwhile, Taeyeon has plans to burn the boyfriend's dick off. Just look at her laughing maniacally, thinking of the joy she'll have while she watches a dude's dick turn into a burnt-up-useless tool.





More importantly, Yoona is ruining my bias list.




So in the end, the girls teach the man a lesson to not fuck around with other girls while dating one of their friends. They danced to a fairly good song while wearing some nice outfits. I'm assuming the girls wanted to let this man enjoy something good before they killed him, because if they truly had wished to torture them, they would have performed IGAB. Maybe if SNSD had performed IGAB, the man would have taken the torch from Taeyeon and burnt his ears off and eyes out. Who knows, but at least My Oh My was a decent song to listen to before he died.

Thanks to comekpop for the Seohyun and Taeyeon gifs and yoonyvl for the Yoona gifs.

  1. The song needed less Tiffany and more everyone else

    1. I actually found her vocals to be nice in this song actually, unlike in Twinkle, where it was subpar.

  2. I try to not listen/watch anything by SNSD or SM related (Except Suho.. I like the amount of hate he gets) but anything for science.

    1. who on earth even hates suho he STANDS OUT for how bland he is in what is probably the blandest group on the variety show circuit right now; all it makes him is extremely easy to ignore

  3. It's a likeable song, definitely.
    But it's also a playing-it-save song.

    I'd totally let Taeyeon burn my dick.

  4. I've never someone look so manically evil in a relatively light-hearted music video.

    The song would have been better if Taeyeon or Jessica were doing Tiffany's "ad-libs".

  5. It's good, but not excellent. Kinda falls in line with the other "good" SM title tracks. Let's just hope their 2014 Korean comeback is better, but I can't raise my hopes at this point.

    Anyone looking forward to Hwayoung's "transformation" into an actress? No?

    1. I sure am! When I first got into the group she and Jiyeon were the only relevant members to me (Though to be fair I probably wouldn't have even realised she was in the group if not for the scandal)

  7. Speaking of your bias list, Yoona is really cute in her new drama. I love the scene when they go to the hotel.

    1. Do you know where I can watch it online for free? I live in Brisbane Australia if that matters

    2. Yes, her new drama is why she's shooting up my bias list.

      Daniel, try gooddrama.net. Viki might work, or it may block you from watching it based on copyright laws.

    3. Yeah, I'm watching it on viki.com myself. I don't think it'll be too difficult to find episodes online if viki blocks you, things are usually a google search away.

    4. Saw most of episode 1 on Good Drama and this shiznit is a boring as fuck. A good reminder why I don't waste my life religiously watching poorly written rom-coms. Yoona's presence is the only redeeming factor. I really like Korean movies however. Sunny is one of my favourite movies of all time.

  8. Unbiased, I think Yoona is the prettiest in SNSD. Not the prettiest in kpop but she's certainly up there.
    Also SNSD's new Jap abum is fantastic. Not as good as their last one but that was a pretty high bench mark.
    And happy birthday to Lee Jajin! (I felt obligated to say that thanks to my user name)

  9. A non box song from SNSD, well I will damned for all eternity. Started the year with a shitty box video and ended with a half decent non box song that didn't make AKF scream in utter agony

  10. How come all of SNSD's Japanese songs are 80% English? They pretty much live in Japan now, you'd think SM would at least TRY to pretend they know Japanese...

    1. At 1:37, I heard "entertain a kitten" or something similar lol.

  11. I can't stop laughing at the second gif of Taeyeon.

  12. I'm tired of SNSD songs with samples of other songs in their intros.
    There was one in the Oh! album that sampled a classical piece.
    sacrilegious.

    Also when I saw the title, I thought of the Aqua song, many years ago in my teenhood.
    It was heaps better lol.
