‘End Of Year Music Festivals’ Favourite Performances

Woah, 2013 is over (Soz, a tad late) and each year KPOP fans always end up looking forward to the end of year music festivals. These “festivals” are held on the final days of the year by the 3 major boradcasting companies of South Korea (ie. KBS, SBS, MBC). It is a stage where the artists who are active during the year can come together and celebrate by putting on some music and performing different stages from the ones that they had promoted during the year. So this means there are many different collaborations between artists or remix stages which would have fans screaming for. Because there happens to be little songs to review at this time of the year (end of Jan, don’t ask why), I thought I do this and release it in time for the Vietnamese (Or Chinese) New Year!!!!!

KBS Gayo Daechukje

  • Honestly, I was not satisfied with any of the collabs. They seem to be a last minute thing which made the show rather messy. They had good songs, but Iw as not satisfied with the way they were presented.
  • Crayon Pop’s Bar Bar Bar was a good stage. The start got everyone hyped up and when the song actually started, boy was the screams loud! It was rather fresh and different stage that everyone must’ve had enjoyed.
  • EXO’s Intro + Growl sounded amazing. Now if only they were not replayed 563495630295634092560 times this year and everyone talking about them, I would not think poorly of them. However the intro and the performance was really good.
  • APINK was one of the few bands to throw in a new instrumental for their “sexy version” of No No No. I enjoyed the dance and I liked the new mix.
  • Beast had a pretty cool stage as well. They kept their normal instrumental but made something interested out of it.
  • Sistar’s “femme fatale” Give It To Me looked really good. Minus the not so good looks of the dancers, I really liked their dance break and Dasom has my heart beating even faster.
  • Miss A’s remixes were amazing this year. I like them much better than the actual song. Amazing right?Well, honestly it is just a new instrumental over some parts and then the actual song itself. And Min, walking away like a boss and carrying on singing after getting hit in the face.

SBS Gayo Daejeon

  • First stage which I enjoyed was VIXX’s On & On and VooDoo Doll. I honestly thought that Hyde and On & On would have been a better match, but they still seemed to pull it off pretty well. I think I am turning into a fan. Damn.
  • Z:EA and Nine Muses collaboration stage with Ghost Of The Wind, Glue and finally hit song Bounce was another stage that literally got me into it. It is such a good stage with the two bands together, where it was Nine Muses first time and Z:EA’s second time since debut.
  • Another collaboration stage goes to Girl’s Day and APINK’s Expectation and No No No. Honestly, it seemed APINK had less airtime than Girl’s Day. Not sure about the detail, but it kind seems unfair. But both suited the stage every well singing each other’s song.
  • Crayon Pop’s Bar Bar Bar was pretty good. But the camera work destroyed the good stage.
  • T-Ara had a lot of hate, but I seemed to enjoy this stage. Number 9 but vampire version. Not much change to the song, except for really creepy dance breaks. And BOOOOBSSS!!!!!
  • 2NE1 had an alight stage. Though they just sang Missing You and Do You Love Me?, this still had remarkable stage preference.
  • Taeyang and G-Dragon seemed to had some fun on stage. I liked the lineup of songs they had coming. They sung 1AM, Crooked, Ringa Linga and Bad Boy. Considering that the whole group as not there, they did a good job filling up 3 other parts as well.

MBC Gayo Daejejeon

  • Miss A’s classy club mix for Hush sounded the best and probably has to be my most favourite stage out of all the stages listed here. It sounded to sexy and cool all at the same time.
  • T-Ara’s Number 9 and What Should I Do was a great stage. They combined the two songs into a club beat kind of song which flowed pretty well, considering the two extreme opposites for each song.
  • Ailee’s rapping before her performance , U&I, was da bomb.
  • F(x)’s Rum Pum Pum Pum was pretty good as well. Was not as impressed with the original version though.But the instrumental and ending of this stage was awesome!!! And finally F(x) gets a stage remix for an end of year festival.
  • B1A4’s rock remix for What’s Happening? was also a pretty cool performance. Literally got me going with the beat.
  • Infinite brought a new thing to the stage with Destiny remixed with the instrumental of Deception. Something that was quite unexpected but sounded pretty good despite the two songs sounding completely different.
  • Give It To Me by Sistar was pretty cool as well if the little bit of dubstep (I think) mixed in the song as well. Hyorin’s intro with Sweet Dream was pretty cool.
  • Kara’s medley of songs was pretty good. And considering the departure of two members, it fitted the occasion. They performed Lupin, Step, Damaged Lady, Mister and Honey (not sure about the last one though.

If you watched the performances, which one did you like? Honestly, when I was watching the performances on YouTube, all I thought was that it seemed too much like a normal music show rather than something to be called a “End Of Year Festival”. I think these stages are losing their purpose. But anyway, still a fantastic line-up and amazing stages!!! What were your favourite stages of the three nights?

Happy New Year!!!


Hi all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Wow, 2013 is finally over. Can you believe it. With days to go, I will be unable to update this over my “break”. Beside that I have scheduled a whole heap of reviews.

What Should I Do? – T-Ara

Source: http://www.c-k-jpopnews.fr/wp-content/uploads/BaiRNb5CcAAHZsF-1.jpg

T-Ara is back with a brand new song, as their repackaged mini album. After finishing up promotions for Number 9, the band promised a comeback later in the year with a brand new song. And indeed they just made thier comeback last week with What Should I Do?, a musical type of song, which CCM promised would be a hit, like how Roly Poly was. I am thankful that the band is now back on their feet and going at it again after last year. I should stop reminding myself about last year. It was such a horrible year for them, one that no KPOP band should ever experience.

The song was promised to be a mage hit like Roly Poly. However, was I the only thought that this song is boring? Well, the song compared to Roly Poly is boring. On its won, it is pretty good, but it seems like CCM is promising more than what they can deliver. Yes, the song kind of has it roots in the 70’s era, but it does not sound similar or can top Roly Poly in anyway. I have to say, the ballad version of this song is pretty good, while the actual song is equally pretty cool. I really love the “Hey baby yo~” part at the start of the song. Really catchy. Also, Boram has more lines???? Wow, that is a change. I love the techno beat of the song, giving it a more modern feel to it. The “Na eotteokhae”  part is really addictive. I have to say, the song was pulled off pretty well. As for the comparison though, not so much.

Oh boy, the acting in this video is ridiculously cheesy. Hence why I can never stand watching a musical, because it sounds so cheesy. Their good actresses, but I think they deserved some kind of plot. Their acting in Number 9 was not exceptional, but much better than this. Let’s turn to the clean up scene: there are 6 girls in this scene. 6 distinct personalities. They include: the boss, the really annoyed one, the “obsessed with herself”, the “fudge cake doing this”, the alcoholic and the “I want to be a superstar”. Yeah, was I the only one who loved this scene, more than the whole music video? Yes? Okay :(. But anyway, the acting was not the best, but I love the musical aspects they pulled into the music video and as well as the live performances. Pretty cool.

I love the dance. Seriously, imitated the dance pretty well. I like the musical aspects, where when there are 5 girls on stage, one would walk on later and do her thing, and another would go missing for a short while, like in a musical, when the actors or actresses are not needed for their scene. The dance is addictive and quite easy, like Roly Poly. And I love Eunjung’s and Hyomin’s part towards the end, that part was pretty cool. Though, I cannot pull it off. Hmmm…. Better not destroy your minds with my amazing dancing skills.

8/10. This is pretty cool. Loved it. Maybe the advertising of it could’ve have been better, because like anybody, I don’t like receiving something that is different from what it was advertised as. Where is the return policy?? No, but I liked the comeback.

PLEASE CHECK OUT THIS POST ON MY PAGE. THANKS AGAIN!!! T-Ara has been nominated for Best Female Artist, Best Song, Best Subunit (T-Ara N4) and Best Japanese Song.

Number 9 – T-Ara

Source: http://24-7kpop.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/t-ara-no-9-mv-teaser-2.jpg

T-Ara has finally made their 6 member comeback after a little over a year of trouble. First, it was Hwayoung who was kicked out the group, and this happened mid last year. After that Ahreum was removed from the group after shocking rumours earlier this year. Now, the only members of the group are Eunjung, Qri, Soyeon, Jiyeon, Boram and Hyomin (the original 6 members) . And I think fans are liking the line-up now. Hwayoung’s addition to the group did not cause that much trouble, however with Ahreum’s and the potential debut of Dani in the group annoyed fans. It seems like CCM has finally worked out their mistake and despite covering up, we know they are scrapped their plan and working from square one. T-Ara’s comeback is well received, doing very well on the charts, reaching up to second place on charts, behind IU.

The song is another amazing song. I love the western mashup with pop style. It is unique and sounds really awesome. Not sure about the upbeat parts after the “Ooooo~” parts at the start, but they have their charm. I love the different parts to the song, as though they seems to be mish mash of mistaken identity, however a combination of glory. Yes, GLORY!!!! The chorus was also amazing as well. I really love the vocals and the rapping in the song. Especially Boram’s voice in this song. It sound much better than normal and it is a pity that she only got like one part, The only thing I dislike in the song is the “I’m headache” part, just before the rap. Ummm…. Your headache? Engrish to the max here. But beside that, It is really cool song. I also like the club version of the song. It is just the instrumental changed around a little bit and sounds pretty cool.

As for the music video, I find it okay. Not the best T-Ara music video, but I love the change from those mini two parts movies to the normal standard music video length. Those sets where they dance are pretty amazing and I really like the close-up shots. However, I find those excessive flashing lights pretty annoying. They are like in most of the video and throughout all of the video. And what is with this weird obsession with the bathtub in the middle of the room. Last time that happened, it was in Teen Top’s To You! There is also something troubling about breaking up for me. I have never been in a relationship before, but I am quite sure you don’t rip paper with your mouth or sleep in a bathtub that is in the middle of the room.  No, it is just me? Oh okay, then. But, it is lovely video.

As for the dance, I love the chorus bit. So cool! And the dance at the rapping, was so cool. But I am not sure about the dance during the instrumental part here it sounds like you’re at a club and the bridge. The girls falling to their knees on the floor, does not like great. It seems like they’re begging their hated lover to come back or something.

8.5/10. Pretty amazing and is uplifting to see such a great comeback after a rough year in the industry. T-Ara Hwaiting~!



Can You Love Me? – 5Dolls ft. Dani (T-Ara N4)

5Dolls (the six-member group) recently made their comeback onto the stage after promotions of Soulmate #1, with their repackaged mini album, First Love. This song also marks the debut of Dani, the long awaited trainee that was meant to be a part of T-Ara, but a lot of stuff happened and the company don’t really know where to put her. Little more on that a little longer. But I think the company is starting to confuse the number 5 with 7. Okay, they got a little confuse with the name 5Dolls when there were 6 members, but now 7 people on stage? I think someone needs to go back to counting class.

The song is boring. It does not really appeal to me and I find this the worst song that I can possibly ever listen to. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating it a bit, but seriously, there was not one bit in this song that I would call “amazing”. Most of it was average and honestly, it does not appeal to many people around there. Maybe they were taking a step away from their previous disco phase, but this song is not the right way to go. Ballads are not really 5Doll’s piece of cake, let alone Coed School. And that song that they released after this one, that too was really awful. Another thing: this song is not promoting 5Dolls. No, it is promoting Dani and only Dani. Nothing is focused on the band, but Dani. For the love of KPOP, she is just “featuring” in the song but it seems like CCM are making this her breakthrough song. Oh, by the way, her rap was awful.

The music video is not any worse. But it was equally as boring. There is actually nothing to say about the video, so I am going to skip over that part. As for the live performance, the dance was rather weak but fitted the song. As for CCM promoting Dani than 5Dolls, yeah, evident with the eye-catching uniform that Dani wears. It is like Dani formed her own group and 5Dolls are the backup dancers. Come on. She could’ve at least walked onto the stage when it was her turn and then left.

1/10. Soz. Not good at all. I actually prefer Soulmate #1 then this song.

Painkiller – Various Artist (Yes, there are quite a bit)

Source: http://soompi-1.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/T-ara-jiyeon-painkiller.png

I have being dying to review this song and “project group”. This song is a ballad and really one of the songs that’s emotion were very big and did a hell of a job to deliver it to its audience. Let’s list all the amount of artists and groups who participated in this label collaboration. These people include: T-Ara’s Soyeon, The SeeYa’s Yoojin, 5Dolls’ Eunkyo and SPEED’s Taewoon and Sungmin. For those who don’t know, all these artists belong to the same company: CCM Media. The song itself, with its music video was released on the 9th of June 2013.

The song is a ballad that talks about how painful love is. Love, in this song, is like an illness that cannot be curable, hence why painkillers can only be taken to be ensure less pain. There are a few lines which I like from the song when translated from Korean to English. I would also like to say that I am very lazy with where I take my translation of lyrics from (kpoplyrics), so I do not cross reference my takings. Sadly. There may be many variations with one line in the song, so what I put on here would not be technically right. You guys should be thankful that I am not using Google Translate. Anyway here are the lines: “Though I’m sick to death, I only think of you” and “Love is love only when it hurts”. The song has a radio like sound start to it and then goes into the full song. Then towards the end it fades into the radio sound once again.

As for the music video, I first thought it would be something horror base, since the video was rather creepy at the start and the music complemented this genre as well. From watching the music video,we can assume that this girl just moved back into the apartment that must’ve belonged to her former boyfriend,as there are many objects in the video that remind of the girl of her past, which causes to become “sick”. Is it me, or my first instinct if this guy or girl cheated on me, making love painful, I would throw out their belongings because it would help me get over the loss? No? Just Me? Okay, then. Also, the stuff looks rather new. Like the mirror has not dust on it. Regardless of the cover or not, there shall be some kind of dust right? We also see her taking some “toxic” drugs which in my point of view, she should’ve died earlier in the video, as at the start (or the first time) taking the drugs, she took a huge amount, more than the recommended amount. Also, the blood looks real as. I am amazed by the special effects. Sad life, I know. At the end, I think she tries to go back into time, but the clock won’t let her. However, it is too late when fate does, as she has taken her final dose of drugs, to kill her. I must commend Jiyeon’s acting. It is amazing. Props to her. You could definitely feel her emotion a lot in this video.

8.5/10. I must say I am quite impressed, especially since I have not be much impressed with the company’s reputation recently.

Jeon Won Diary – T-Ara N4

Source: http://www.allkpop.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/20130418_taran4_countrysidelife2.jpg

T-Ara N4 has made their long awaited unit debut with a really cool hip hop mashed up with folk music track. Seriously, if you really do think that this is a bad combination. Think again. I am not a fan of both hip hop and country/folk. But seriously, this song uses both really well, and both match quite well. Okay, more about this subunit. It consists of 4 members: Hyomin, Ahreum, Eunjung & Jiyeon. Or the “popular” members of the group. The other three: Qri, Boram and Soyeon will be a subunit in Japan. Smart, but really a bad initiative, at this time. After their scandal, should they not be promoting as one group. A song is not enough you know?

The song is quite interesting. The instrumental is amazing, with the traditional instrument in the chorus was pretty cool. I am totally taken surprised when the same SPEED member “featured” in this song. Seriously, he gets all the popularity and the others get the other end of the stick. And did he creep out of nowhere? There was no mention in previous articles about him being their debut. The rap itself is pretty cool. I love the part before the chorus. It is my favourite part of the song. The chorus was meh, but it passed my standards. Ring-a-ring-a-ting? Anyone? No?

The music video is quite weird. I only just watched the “drama” version of the videos and it seems to be a child of the Gangnam Style music video. Weird and wacky. Hyomin, I think was pretty funny. I love the fact that they actually put reality into the video and I am amazed about the crappy feel this video has. Sorry not for me.

As for the dance version, it was much better. No weird bunnies jumping around. I am pretty cool with this video. It matches the hip hop feel of the song. The colour is pretty good. Something, that KPOP videos seems to be missing a lot lately. There is not much colour at all. Hmmm… By far, I prefer the dance version over the drama version. I don’t have much to complain about anyway.

The dance is pretty cool. I love the different formations. I love how basic the dance feels. I love the part where they are mocking (in a good way) country people and that dance where Eunjung was singing. I love the chorus bit. Basically, I love EVERYTHING in the dance.

9/10. Seriously guys! I think this is the first time I gave T-Ara a pretty good score. Maybe excluding Cry Cry (Which you can see here!) for the dance version review and (Here) for the drama version. Also, Did anyone else feel that the teasers were a bit weird? The upgraded version had an extra second. OMG. An extra second!! So rare.

Bunny Style – T-Ara

Source: http://seoulbeats.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/20130302_seoulbeats_t-ara2.jpg

T-Ara is finally back with a brand new J-POP single/album. Going for something much different than before, Bunny Style (I think the song actually has a similar title, that is much more accurate. Since I am so lazy to write out the actually Japanese word. The thug life chose me). This style is much more different compared to their other releases. On with the review.

This song, as I said above, is much different to what they would normally release. Not sure if they were trying to breaking into that weird cutesy genre that Japan is known for. I happen to like this song and thought it was quite addictive. The chorus for me was the best part of the whole song. I was okay with the rap of the song. I have to agree with the rest of the world and that she sucks. Especially live. Totally, but haters are going to hate (I think I used that in the wrong context). But overall I liked the song. That mini slutty dance music instrumental after the rap DID NOT FIT the song AT ALL. I DO NOT want to listen to that mini part ever again. That was the first part. It seems like any girl group has to have that “instrumental” to show off their sexiness or else they are doomed!!! Get with the time and find something new.

The music video to me is a bit weird. The music video is quite cute and colorful  But the plot of the music video just got to me. It seems random and kind of like rushed. I like the smartness of the music video and song, as it ties in the bunny theme. But girls going after a bunny, who is a player, is not exactly that interesting. I just wonder why the bunny left you girls. Oh maybe it is because you guys are human and that he can breed and blend in with his own crowd, by dating a female bunny. You see? Anyway, beside that I was pretty okay with the music video. Nothing that much to complain about. (Get rid of dubstep dance please!!!).

I really like the whole idea of promoting the song for FREE in Japan before the actual release. That is pretty cool. As for the dance, I thought the chorus was really good and quite addictive. What? I dance in my sleep. However for that dubstep dance. No. Just no.

7.5/10. Pretty good.

Sexy Love – T-Ara

Source: http://taimukira.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/090612_tara_sexy_love_mcountdown.jpg

Too soon? I guess so. Back after their controversy of the Hwayoung incident, they have made one of their least successful comebacks to date, I think. I guess they had some strong competition (*Cough*Cough*-Psy-*Cough*). But really, I was too kind of was disappointed. Not only now, they slapped a song with an irrelevant music video (drama version), they kind of made me feel really disappointed. This song was planned to be released right after Day By Day, but was postponed for obvious reasons.

As I said I was disappointed. I thought this song was like “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” song that most of us sang when we were younger. Yeah, I am referring to the chorus of the song. ‘Sexy eyes, sexy nose” really does not cut it out for me. Really, I don’t pay attention to their nose in particular if i was finding a girl to love with. I also did not like the start, it kind of felt awkward and made the song kind of slow, but since it was some techno type, I expected something much faster. I did agree with their “robot theme” as the song did drop a few hints of being robots. Question: Is this the type of songs robots dance to? 😉

As for the music video, and I am reviewing the one with the dance it. I found it really annoying to watch. I watched it but I really found it annoying/ The start was really dragged out, and the scenery was kind of gloomy in my point of view. Since their robots, it made their expressions really fake, which I did not enjoy watching. The close up really sucked. I think this would be their worst concept ever.

Their dance really just fits the robotic theme. Not really much to say. Just on stage, they looked more expression-less than ever. But I liked their costumes for the stages though.

Yeah, a really bad concept and a comeback that was too soon. 3/10.  (Really sorry, you may think I am now biased with this group, but seriously, I just hated the concept. That means, never do the robot next to me  unless you look really good doing it. I still like their old songs though.)

Day By Day – T-Ara

Source: http://d1i45kki000yqu.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Tara_musiccore070712.jpg


This must be one of the slowest songs ever for this year. But not only that, it is pretty good. Despite their scandal recently, they have held a strong song. Not winning any awards unfortunately, but this song is still award-worthy. I really love the steadiness of the song overall. It is summer and summer is known for dance dubstep shuffling music, and this song is kind of a relief from this song. However I felt that they held back a bit too much for this song as well. Slow is not really T-Ara’s thing. I like it, but this is really not an image for them, compared to other songs like Lovey Dovey, Cry Cry, Roly Poly etc.

Music Video

This music video is a lot like Cry Cry and Lovey Dovey. Just only the type of song and title did not really fit the music video. This was kind of Zombie Apocalypse and fighting style kind of music video, but yet we get some unappealing and unfitting.

Besides that, this a a really rocking type of music video. Blind girl (Dani) and her sister have survived a evil villain. They hide in cars and live their life in freedom but with their guard up. As for the villain, she is going around looking for Dani, those with or without an answer is killed. Later the villain’s army finds Dani and her sister. They fight. Sister is defeated and Dani taken away from her. A guy turns up and save the sister’s life, while Dani is trapped in the cage and the villain soon notices that this girl has amazing powers. Then the sister wakes up. Wow, dramatic much.

As for the dance version. NO. THIS SONG DOES NOT A DANCE. Totally ruined it. I don’t want hands flying around me and stuff like that. Rubbish. Oh and those awful flashes, and the really annoying change over cuts, are really stupid.

Live Performance

No to the dance. Thank you very much.

And The Rating?

5.66666667/10. The song was good, the music video was average and the dance, no.

Have Fun Watching 😀 Troy

Music Video (Drama +Dance Versions):

Live Performance:

Lovey Dovey (Zombie Ver.) – T-Ara


Yes, shuffling songs are epic. Yes, Shuffling is epic. Therefore this song is epic. However, there is one big part of the song which I do not like. I HATE THE CHORUS. Lovey Dovey is not a thing to repeat. Especially when this is a really upbeat song. Yes, I am not a fan of T-Ara, however Lovey Dovey does not sound good. It is quite annoying, in my point of view. It is like the next “Friday” (Just not that auto-tuned). Yet again, T-Ara disappoints me with another song.

Music Video

Must I say something. Don’t T-Ara know better than to sing but actually run. Like seriously, they are all dancing to thier new song with ZOMBIES is front of them the whole time. Don’t they realize, that was their cue to leave? Don’t they know ZOMBIES eat human brains? What kind of human beings are they? Unless they want to become the heroes of the day and they just completely fail. When the ZOMBIES actually destory thew fence and eat the guards brain, T-Ara finally relizes that they are screwed. No joking.

Also I learnt another thing from this video. After eating. ZOMBIES like to dance. Yes, after eating T-Ara’s brains, they all start to dance to Lovey Dovey. I wonder if they prefer dubstep or slower music?

Live Performance

I really love the circle part of the dance where they are all in the circle shuffling around. The shuffle with the words Lovey Dovey  felt really weird. I love the hand movements and to me the song sounds a lot like Roly Poly in live performance rather than in the actual full song as well. I also don’t get the hair-hand shake movement of the dance. Is that really a hot thing right now?

And The Rating?

The song and live performance was good. The music video was better. 7/10 is the rating I would give it.

Have Fun Watching. Troy :D

Lovey Dovey – T-Ara (Drama Version)


Yes, shuffling songs are epic. Yes, Shuffling is epic. Therefore this song is epic. However, there is one big part of the song which I do not like. I HATE THE CHORUS. Lovey Dovey is not a thing to repeat. Especially when this is a really upbeat song. Yes, I am not a fan of T-Ara, however Lovey Dovey does not sound good. It is quite annoying, in my point of view. It is like the next “Friday” (Just not that auto-tuned). Yet again, T-Ara disappoints me with another song.

Music Video

Ahhhh, another video. The 2nd part of the 2-part mini-drama. I say this one makes more sense when it comes to the plot than Cry Cry. I was quite sad to see the old man die in this part and that both girls had to see the saviour guy die. I pretty much prefer this part over the first one (but hey, I love to watch endings of movies more than the start). This focuses on the romantic side of the story rather than the dark secrets of the first part of the story. I don’t find any parts awkward in this video which is great. (Well, the main girl was awkward when she was in the night club). I also like how they incorporated We Were In Love by T-Ara and Davichi into the video.

Live Performance

I really love the circle part of the dance where they are all in the circle shuffling around. The shuffle with the words Lovey Dovey  felt really weird. I love the hand movements and to me the song sounds a lot like Roly Poly in live performance rather than in the actual full song as well. I also don’t get the hair-hand shake movement of the dance. Is that really a hot thing right now?

And The Rating?

The song and live performance was good. The music video was better. 7/10 is the rating I would give it.

Have Fun Watching. Troy 😀

Cry Cry (Dance Version) – T-Ara


I really am not a fan of T-Ara and I really dislike the normal version (Drama Version) of this song. It is not that enjoyable to listen to. I do prefer it over Roly Poly. However, every time I listen to it I find it boring. Add that to the dance version and you find a pile of dung. Yes I am harsh however this is the truth for me.

Music Video

Talk about confined. You see a group of girls who dance in an odd room. Not the best video. There is nothing I liked about this video. The lighting was odd compared to other videos (aka. very dark, darker than most scenes in their mini drama). The dance was really not that great. Some people loved the cane dance. To me it was a distraction. I really dislike their scarf dance. Really it was awful to my eyes. Sad but true. I really loved Bo Peep  Bo Peep. Why don’t they go back to those times?

Live Performance

Since I spoke about the dance in the music video section, there really is not much to say about the rest of the video. I did say I hated the video’s lightning. However on the stage, the lightning was golden-like which reflected the song’s tune and instrumental.

And the rating?

Not really the best song. It did have many flaws though. Oh well —–> 5.5/10.

Cry Cry – T-Ara (Mini Drama)

Okay Today I will be reviewing the Drama version of the song Cry Cry about T-Ara. Some different headings are included here.


Hmmm… Not a big fan of T-Ara. This song therefore does not work for me. I really dislike the normal version. It is not that enjoyable to listen to. I do prefer it over Roly Poly. However, every time I listen to it I find it boring. Add that to the the mini drama and you find a pile of dung. Yes I am harsh however this is the truth for me.

Music Video

This was only the good thing about the whole “Cry Cry” business. (Wait, there is still Lovey Dovey. I don’t like the teaser **) This music video had a clear plot which allowed many of us understand to plot. However I am confused about who’s who in this video. Is the girl part of the mafia or police? Is her dad the mafia or police? Is her guardian evil or good? Is the run-away culprit really evil or is good? Scrap the idea of a clear plot, I need to solve this before I can say I have a clear understanding of the plot.

However the actors and actresses/singers portrayed their roles well. They made the whole thing pretty good. There is one thing I am confused with. Does the lead girl love her guardian? There is proof that indicates so however other proof that shows us she is not.

Anything Else

I am kind of lost now. First day back from 2 week break for my exams and I need to get used o the format. My hands hurt at the moment. Let’s leave me until another topic. I think the music video would have done much better if the song was actually the ballad version. I love the ballad version. My thoughts only.

And The Rating

This song is not that boring as Mr Simple was however I think it was boring and the song/music video combined did not go well with each other. I would give us a 6.5/10.

Have Fun Watching 😀
