Wa$$up is more hood than your unnis



Say what you want about their lack of pretty or talent or money, but this is the most raw thing I've ever seen from a kpop girl group. I feel like someone just put a demo DVD in my hand at a gas station. This is way more American than G.Soul managed to deliver after spending 15 years there. (I'd write an article about that but it'd require listening to it more without falling asleep) I'm probably going to watch and listen to this more than anything until MissA comes back.

  1. This was the first song of theirs I didn't hate. In fact, I'm going to commit and say I like it.

    WA$$UP should continue with this concept. It works.

  4. I enjoy thinking that at some point some exec was like, "We need a cool name for this group..."
    And then someone was like, "Well, what about "What's Up", the kids these days are always saying that..."
    And then the first guy's like, "Hmm... That's cool, but what if we make it be like, "Wassup..."
    Everyone kind of nods in agreement.
    "No, needs to be a little cooler..."
    "Well what if change the 's' to a dollar sign, because you know GIT DAT MONEY..."
    And on that day WA$$UP was born.

    2. It is a real mystery as to why it's letterboxed 4:3 480p. Like, it just doesn't make sense how that could even happen. Even some clueless idiot just using the defaults of whatever program they used should have ended up in something HD. Since it has the MBC Music thing and age rating at the start, I wonder if someone copied it off an internet stream to post it on Youtube? LOL. Oh well, maybe we'll get a proper rip from Korean TV soon.

    3. Actually, looking at those logos coming out the sides, it's a 16:9 video inside a 4:3 frame inside a 16:9 frame... which is only 480p. WHYYYYYYY?

    4. Even Shut up U is available in 1080, I'm so confused right now lol

    5. This video is such a half-assed attempt, perhaps they don't care anymore.

    6. 1080p! http://tvcast.naver.com/v/275358 ...if you sign in to a naver account, otherwise 720p.

      Also here http://music.daum.net/artist/vclip/detail?vclip_id=29485

      Hopefully the 1080p will come out to a place more accessible to international fans.

  8. G.soul is such a flop. His song sucks and he sounds like a 10 year old. All the hype that he carried... G-friend is the only G worth talking about this month

    1. Its so stupid how JYP is launching a label completely focused on indie music. I believe this makes it official that words like "independant" and "alternate" now mean jack shit in the music industry. As for Gsoul, he is just laughable. He's unoriginal, even for kpop

  9. Wa$$up are yet to find a concept that does not produce incredibly annoying music

  10. They filmed this with the exact potato that Hello Venus used for their wiggle wiggle MV. This video was so awkwardly american I was expecting a JYP style "Mustard on the beat" sound mark in the beginning. 3/5.

  11. Lack of pretty -_-
    I, for one, think they have an abundance of pretty.

    1. It isn't "Korean beauty standard for celebrities" pretty. If you haven't heard anyone diss them for their looks, you haven't been paying attention.

  12. This song made me a wa$$up stan. They need to make more like this if they want my $$. Anyway, 1080p for y'all academic purposes: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uGxIbRfumoU
