"OMFG! A REAL ARTICLE BEING WRITTEN ON AKF! THE APOCALYPSE IS NEAR!"
6-ara makes their second comeback of 2013, and no one is happier than me about 6-ara except for Boram. Boram used to get a decent amount of lines during the original 6-ara days, but when Hwa Doggy Dogg was added to the group, Boram was reduced to getting no lines and resorting to dance breaks to even get any solo time in a song at all. Or maybe she gave Shinsadong Tiger great head after the two got stoned as hell together. I don't know what actually went down, but Boram is getting a shit ton of lines these days, and all ten of her fans must be ecstatic.
The first part of the music video starts off with the ballad version of 'Do You Know Me?', and I'm probably one of the few that wishes it was longer. I've been a long time fan of CCM's ballads, as the ballads are more interesting to listen to and don't fully rely on the singer's vocals for vocalfags to jack off to. The notes actually change within the song, which is much better than the average stock ballad where a simple tune is looped for 4-5 minutes with very little variance.
It is also interesting to listen to a song where Soyeon doesn't anchor it down. There's only one other song that comes to mind (I Go Crazy Because Of You) where Soyeon doesn't have the majority of the lines. It adds good variety, as Hyomin and Eunjung can carry songs, and Jiyeon and Boram are decent enough for idol music.
Next up is the disco version of Do You Know Me?, and it starts off with Haitai not knowing where the fuck he is and suddenly meeting up with Qri and dancing. The next time I see someone who's barely an acquaintance and say "Haven't we met before?", I'm totally going to start dancing, hoping the person and all of the random strangers around us start dancing too.
The disco version plays to T-ara's strengths, and there's no fucking rap in the song, so 5/5. There.
In addition to the song being another jjangbak piece in T-ara's discography, the rest of music video is interesting. I particularly enjoyed how Soyeon was too busy standing on the balcony looking in her mirror while the other five members were dancing. Dancing is below Madame Soyeon.
While all of this is important, the most important thing is that Jiyeon has a challenger in this music video after destroying the rest of the members in Number Nine.
Will Jiyeon give up her spot so easily or will she fight to the end?
Hyomin is fighting Jiyeon right now for the most fappable in the group. Eunjung held the position for so long, just to be usurped so quickly. Her white hair isn't helping her reclaim her throne anytime soon.
Bonus Soyeon just because she's looking so much better after the dreadful QBS days.
Thanks to Soyeon Haven for the Soyeon gif and comekpop for the Jiyeon and Hyomin gifs.
