POINTS

  • This has that same dark rock feel as Twins (Knock Out), but has this bass that makes it more… Pop like, I guess (I like my bass heavy, though that has nothing to do with it).
  • No lovey lyrics!!! This is about how corrupt money is!
  • The choreography is sorta sexy… Just randomly…
  • Hello Henry ^_^. Love the violin solo.
  • The music video is so… Scary…..

Kpop Quick Review: Twins (Knock Out) by Super Junior

(Because they’re about to comeback August 3rd and there’s still time for summer, I’m going to do a Suju review marathon 🙂 I wish I would’ve done this for all the other comebacks (I never thought about it! Plus I’m busy…)… I won’t be able to do these review marathons after August 14th, unless there’s a weekend comeback… 2 Super Junior reviews a day! Enjoy 🙂 – Izzy)

Twins (Knock Out) is Super Junior’s debut single from 2005 (back when their concept was a “rotational” boy band “Super Junior 05”, and Kyuhyun, Zhoumi, and Henry were not in the group plus its subunits), and is a cover of Knockout by the British boy band Triple Eight.

POINTS

  • Wow… The hair, video, song and concept. Definitely different from the cute Sorry Sorry or sexy Bonamana.
  • I used to be really into rock and screamo before I got into kpop (it’s weird to admit haha). This pop rock is an interesting mix.
  • This was back when Sungmin had a lot of lines…
  • This was back when K.R.Y wasn’t as prominent.
  • This was back when Kangin, Kibum and Hangeng were still here…
  • Was this the fashion back in 2005? It’s sorta awkward to look at now in 2011… (Heechul… You’re really pretty, but this…)
  • It’s manly. I could see fanboys sprouting from this song.

Kpop Review: Without You by BoM (Blooming of Our Music)

Without You is BoM’s debut song.

POINTS

  • It’s not just heartbroken vocals: there’s heartbroken rapping too.
  • A very sweet and memorable chorus.
  • This isn’t your average ballad. The lyrics, though romantic, don’t exactly give off that overly used romantic vibe… (explained below)
  • Lovely vocals. But then again, they are a ballad group.
  • Do other ballad groups have rappers in them?
  • Why are people comparing them and Block B to 2PM and 2AM? (my opinion below).
