"Reopen" the great K pop debate?!? I thought last time the consensus was that it was awesome.
I just watched "My Mister" on NetFlix. Rather different than what you are watching. I have a major IU crush.
I used to eat K-Pop while watching Saturday morning cartoons, - wait, that's Corn Pops..wait, Corn Pop was a bad guy? Nevermind.
my knowledge of K Pop is pretty slim* but Sleaford Mods come under my radar from time to time and it’s like they have been put on this earth purely to annoy me.
I used to commute by bus and teenagers would be playing music on their smart phones to each other. The tinny, out of sync harsh beats from a dozen smart phones was my daily hell. Sleaford Mods have made a career out of that sound.
* it just seems to be ubiquitous modern RnB that happens to be sung in Korean
those asian folks are wacky.
Thanks so much! I will check this one out later today. I love IU's songs "Twenty-Three" and "Palette".
There is an otherness to K-Pop that I find intriguing. However, the whole spectacle that it presents reminds me of a parade. I've never been a fan of parades. K-Pop, in many ways, comes off to me as a celebration of conformity. That's a turn-off for me in the age of surveillance. I'm not crazy about a lot of the false rebelliousness in pop music, but at least it keeps the notion of change alive. Anyway, that's just my my visceral reaction to K-Pop. There might be a lot about it that I'm missing.
Just went back and listened to that one; I see what you mean and it does have some nice voicings and harmony. Interesting approach.
You might like the Japanese group (Not really J-Pop) BiSH and their lead singer Aina The End more.
So if you ingest salmonella from handling your pet white snake, is that what your vision looks like? Sort of an out-of-focus thermal imaging? That could be...fun.
Those two did seem less big shiny parade-ish, both in sonics and visuals.
Thanks again, @BigDaddyLH. I watched the first half-hour of Mr. Mister with lunch today. That opening scene with the insect was hilarious, as was the power struggle between the board members being seen in split-screen as their ID tags flipping around on a Go board. And then that middle-aged man at the bar portraying his life as a horror movie, and a screen appearing over the back of the bar, his woeful tale unfolding in flickering images. I very much look forward to the villains receiving their comeuppance, too: that wife, that loan shark, and that hospice nurse. Great stuff!
I just wish Netflix would translate the song lyrics. I bet that song that played over that scene of our heroes heading home on the subway ... well, I bet the words to it were the pinnacle of dearth and despair.
I was impressed by how much booze was constantly being drunk. Then I saw this You know you are going at it hard when a Russian tells you to slow down!
