I am back and so is Orange Caramel. It has been quite a while since we have seen the trio on stage, with their last promotions occurring in October in 2012. And it seems like the girls become much more popular everytime they make a comeback. They are the resident cute girl group, who always go for an extreme. Like I have never seen the girls do anything that we would deem as not weird. And it seems this time is no different as they make a comeback on stage with a fish costume. Wow, that is pretty cool. But on with the review.
This song is freaking amazing. Those who condemn this song as a horrible song I think have no clue that “sexy” does not need to be included in the song. It is so nice to see a cute girl group make their comeback for something that they are known for, not for following the trend and jumping on the bandwagon. This song is utterly amazing. Everything in the song from the vocals and the instrumental makes the song so fun to listen to. To are insternately smiling when you see or hear this song because it carries that feeling with it. It may be a little hard to understand the lyrics, but from reading the English translation and getting a few tips from people, it (and this is sonly a suggestion) but the song talks about being someone who you think is cool, and at the same time losing your uniqueness and individuality. Interesting.
To link the above meaning of the song to the music video, I think that the girls see the “Catallena” as the octopus. This “octopus” is seen as cool and amazing, but in matter fact, the octopus seems to be shallow. The fishes (or Orange Caramel) try their best to be like the octopus, by putting themselves up on the market and then being made into sushi. I actually like the music video. It was cute. They made objects that would be really small into life size objects like the soy sauce dish which was really cool. Also the big glad wrap scene (which was banned by KBS because they thought it was a way to depict the music industry) was really amazing as well. Also, loving the costumes. Not sure about the end of the video though, where they eat the sushi. They seem to dislike it so maybe they instead tried to be someone else which they thought was cool, but in the end, they did not like it as well. Really cool music video which was colourful and amazing.
The dance is really cute. My favourite part of the whole song and the dance would have to be Lizzy’s part. The dance is super catchy.
Super catchy dance. Check. Really meaningful video. Check. Amazing song that is widely popular. Check. Guess what, 10/10.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLc0UX7U1M04rYaFol-ZLhcz7fKeqgETfU%5D
