May I suggest you pass on the soy sauce, though?
After School subgroup Orange Caramel has returned once again to satiate fans of quirky dance music. Those who love the group's established sound have reason to be thankful, as "Catallena" treads familiar ground with an energetic, disco beat paired with jpop-style vocals. Unfortunately, those who haven't liked Orange Caramel up to this point probably won't find reason to convert to the Sweet Side (It's like the Dark Side but with less evil plotting and brighter uniforms).
Being a big fan of Orange Caramel's music, I enjoyed "Catallena" a lot. It's not a new sound for the group or anything, but it's enjoyable and different enough not to feel been-there-done-that.
The song describes feeling bewitched by a gorgeous, charming woman who you want to be around but of whom you nonetheless are jealous. Basically, she's the popular girl in school that you stare at in class, talk shit about behind her back with your loser friends, but would still wet yourself a little if she invited you to hang out at her place. We've all been there before (I know I have, at least).
This situation plays out in the video as the girls, as supermarket fish, discover they're considered not as valuable as a nearby octopus, played by comedian Kim Daesung.
Nobody puts Nana on the clearance shelf.
The girls constantly compare themselves to the more expensive octopus, despite being seemingly beautiful mermaids (or shrimp, salmon and mackerel. It's a little confusing).
Under O.C., under O.C. Darling it's better, down where it's wetter. Take it from me.
In the end, the message of the video is basically not to compare yourself to someone else. Just because someone values one person's qualities over your own, doesn't mean you don't have value. Different people have different tastes. Some people like to eat the octopussy, while others would rather eat Raina. Like Kpopalypse.
BOTTOM LINE: Orange Caramel comes back with more of their quirky, jpop-inspired sound. Fans will probably find it tasty; people who hate the group's shtick will most likely gag on "Catallena" like so much cheap sushi.
