If you are interested in KPop, read this article from The Chosun Ilbo about how terrible KPop is. The author mentions the surprising popularity of Girls Generation and Wonder Girls who are known more for their good looks and hilarious performances on reality TV than their ability to sing.
You may know Wonder Girls from their song “Nobody,” which according to Wikipedia actually made it on to US Billboard charts. (The first KPop song to do so.)
The video has more than 47 million views on YouTube. And with those dance moves and costumes it’s easy to see why. (Those shoes are so awesome!) Although this is one of the most conservative KPop videos I’ve seen.
Here’s a more recent and much more bizarre Wonder Girls video for “Two Different Tears” and it’s in English. Not that it improves the lyrics any.
Curiosity led me to look up Broccoli You Too. The author points to this small indie band as one of the best and most well-received by critics. With a bit of looking, I found these videos.
And after watching it, I’m not quite sure if I like Broccoli You Too anymore than the manufactured comparison band of Wonder Girls.
I predict an evening of ice cream and YouTube.
Which do you like better? Or am I comparing two things which can not be accurately compared?
