My Thoughts on KittiB’s “Doin’ Good” Music Video

KittiB puts out a new track “Doin’ Good” with the help of Verbal Jint.

The track is about KittiB still “doin’ good” despite a significant other/people in the past putting her down and controlling her. The song is vague about who exactly is oppressing her, but the video features a couple with the woman being abused by a man. I like how the video is filmed with a darker look, representing the tough times she dealt with. I also really enjoyed how they superimposed videos of her breaking things from her past over footage of her memories with the abusive man. This type of message isn’t new to hip hop, but the way KittiB delivers her track is catchy and impressive. Plus, Verbal Jint’s verse fit into the song seamlessly.

My Thoughts on DEAN’s “Bonnie & Clyde” Music Video

Dean is back with another smooth track “Bonnie & Clyde.”

In “Bonnie & Clyde,” Dean croons of being in love with a girl even though she chooses to return to her lover. Much of the video is in a grainy quality, as if watching an old VHS tape which goes with the whole idea of him looking back at his time with his crush, yearning for her. The video also features a bunch of glitchy effects with splashes of color, lights and vague figures, as if all his memories aren’t in place but he continually goes back to revisit them anyway.

Dean outdoes himself with another great R&B track (which Korea could use more of) and video accompaniment.

My Thoughts on CLC’s “High Heels” Music Video

Previously, CLC released a short version of their “High Heels” music video & now they’ve released a full version.

The song is about how “high heels” are the secret reason why they’re pretty, so there’s a lot of focus on heels in the video. I really like the heels with ankle bow ties and that they incorporate the Wizard of Oz Dorothy heel click into the choreography.

However, I feel like there are some random scenes that don’t really fit with the theme like trying to doll up, but ending up with messy hair or eating macarons with improperly brewed coffee. Unless that’s some roundabout way of them trying to act like grown up lady-like women, which isn’t all that closely related to high heels making people pretty.

In any case, this song would make a pretty good advertisement for heels.

My Thoughts on GOT7’s “Fly” Music Video

GOT7 returns with “Fly.”

The video is a really great example of making a performance video engaging. Props to the cameraman because his filming is really presenting the choreography in a more interesting way. Also, the styling is simple yet appealing; I really like the blue bomber jackets coupled with the slightly lighter blue shoes.

The song didn’t really meet my expectations, falling short in comparison to their recent bops,”Just Right,” “If You Do” and “Confession Song,” which I found catchy in very different ways. Not saying that it’s terrible, but with GOT7 having recently been releasing better music, this doesn’t quite follow the trajectory they’ve been going. Though simplistic, the visuals are the focus of this video with the song feeling very much so like background accompaniment.

My Thoughts on Red Velvet’s “One of These Nights” Music Video

Red Velvet returns with “One of These Nights.”

The Korean title of the song is “July 7,” which is the day of Chilseok (aka Tanabata/Qixi in other Asian countries). The festival is inspired by a folklore story in which a human and goddess falls in love, but are separated by her father. He remains on Earth, while she resides in the Heavens, but on July 7th, a bridge is formed across the Milky Way and they can meet once a year. Likewise, the song is about wanting to meet a lover.

This music video plays with perspectives and I love how it always keeps you guessing as to what will happen next. I am sad about Wendy’s styling though. They didn’t fill her brows well and she’s the only one with unnatural hair color, which is so bright red. It just makes her stick out in not the good way. Her red hair looks okay as the video goes on, but that opening shot of her is shockingly unflattering. Which coordi has it in for Wendy??

My Thoughts on Hyomin’s “Sketch” Music Video

T-ARA’s Hyomin makes her solo comeback with “Sketch.”

The video takes the song literally and features Hyomin visiting a tattoo parlor, where she meets Nam Goong Min. (Never imagined that he’d fit the hot tattoo artist role, but it works.) The video is full of sensuality and it’s presented in a pretty artistic way. The video is pretty suggestive with Hyomin making lots of sexy eyes and reaction shots like clutching sheets and such, but it didn’t really put me off. I thought the video was visually interesting with all the colors, outfits and sets, but what didn’t work for me was the song actually. To me, it’s not all that melodically interesting, so it’s got nothing to hook me.

My Thoughts on WJSN’s “Catch Me” Music Video

WJSN follows up their debut track with “Catch Me.”

The girls went for cute with their debut song and now they’re here with a more rhythmic track.

For starters, this video looks pretty low budget and low quality. I guess they poured all their money into the debut music video. Something about this concept just looked a little off to me in this video like being “sexy” and tough just didn’t seem to stick. Maybe it’s because they just exude more of a young and cute vibe to me. I can’t say no to exploring different genres and concepts, so hopefully they test a couple things out and find what works best for them.

My Thoughts on FIESTAR’s “Mirror” Music Video

FIESTAR makes their comeback with “Mirror.”

As one could guess, the video is chock full of mirrors, but I think they could have done some pretty cool things using the mirrors to present a more unique video. Although, I did like the set where the lighting makes it look like they’re underwater.

Personally, I didn’t really like the choreography that much. As the video is primarily a dance video, I actually found that I enjoyed the song more when I wasn’t watching it. To me, the choreo didn’t seem to fit the sensual, yet sad song; I think it could have been better.

My Thoughts on JJCC’s “Today” Music Video

JJCC returns with a cute pop song “Today.”

The video opens with a girl messaging her boyfriend via tablet and waiting for him, only for him to dump her. She sits there dejectedly and decides to read today’s webtoon featuring the boys of JJCC. (I had no idea people used tablets to message people instead of phones nowadays.)

She begins to envision herself in the JJCC webtoon and has a fun time spending “only today” with the boys. She wakes up, realizing she fell asleep on the bench. Realizing that it was all just a dream, she sadly leaves & it turns out there’s a teddy bear with a necklace left in her wake, suggesting that maybe it wasn’t all a dream??

The music video doesn’t present a fresh story, but it’s cute all the same. My sole takeaway: if hopscotch is as fun as they make it look, I’d like to play.

My Thoughts on FEMM’s “L.C.S.” Music Video

FEMM is back with “L.C.S.”

FEMM always brings interesting concepts for music videos & “L.C.S.” certainly doesn’t disappoint. I don’t understand all the technical stuff going on to accurately describe what’s happening, so I won’t even try. But, it’s interesting to see the intersection of technology and pop music and a bunch of glitchy digitized FEMM clones in this video. Can’t talk about this music video without mentioning the unexpected scissoring, but that was definitely a thing that happened. In terms of styling, their short silver hair is a good look on them!
