From simply listening, and I know I'll be crucified for this, I feel the School Gyrls gave a much better overall vocal performance. The two girls that got to sing have pretty strong voices in comparison to Sohee - whom I think was a terrible choice to give the meat of the vocals to. Her English pronounciation is pretty awful and her voice isn't one that should be pushed to the front for the sake of initial impressions for American audiences.
Hell, even that rapper chick's rap portion was better than Yubin's. Too bad all of the School Gyrls are really tacky looking!

The cameo from JYP was the cutest part, and that's really...sad. I did like the thick black girl that rapped, girl was working it when it came to the dance. But like AEUG said, it's like they took the top 10 songs and put them in a blender to get something that everyone would like. Eh. I do have the chorus stuck in my head after listening, so maybe I'll stick it in a playlist to see if it lasts, but I doubt it.
Spelling girls as gyrls really makes me wonder how many people in America don't understand how things are pronounced differently once you change a single letter. It's GUYrls with the y and sounds/looks utterly ridiculous. Did you really think you'd gain cool points by proving that you can't spell? Ugh I want to give whoever came up with the group name a lobotomy*. Oh, and don't think I didn't notice your "multicultural" group left out the latina. But it looks like you have a halfie, so there's a little going in your favor.
*Note that a lobotomy sounds extreme but they're already near that state so it doesn't make much of a difference.

Part of the appeal of K-pop is the amount of work that goes into the production of a song and music video. This was extremely phoned in.
A lot of kpop MVs are filmed only a few days before they're released. Some of them are really rushed.

Also going to take this moment to brag about having the best girlfriend. The Wonder Girls were in Vegas, and she ditched her friends to find them and tell them how much I love them and get me Sohee's autograph.

As long as we're bragging, when I saw them in Denver with 2AM I got to touch Yubin's hand, and they all waved specifically at me several times (I was front row, and taller than the entire room of tiny Asian girls. So basically any time they would look in my general direction I would wave awkwardy and they'd notice every once in a while). My friend even commented that Lim "loved" me because she kept acknowledging me. hahaha.
Also, Jo Kwon's hands are the smoothest I've ever touched. Ain't no girls got nothin' on him!!

Generic Nick show/script.
I didn't like the School Gyrls to begin with because they had a suck name. Now I really don't like them.
Oh and JYP was awesome. Literally, he stole the show with his Tsunku worthy mad cap antics only a real producer should have!
During the Wonder Girls fighting, I was waiting for cat fight Korean mud slinging with subtitles but got heavy on the accent English instead. :<
Lim reminds me a lot of Yui Okada minus the boobs.

And I still don't like Be My Baby, but the other one they sang about loving me more than cars something or other sounded good. Anyone know what song that was?

Is it bad that my first thoughts about the movie other than "Oh, this is awful" were how funny it was that WG were painted as kind of liesure-obsessed? However, by the time JYP rolled around in his skull footie pajamas and $$$ eye mask I had come around to appreciating the movie as cheesy Disney fun. One question though... Is it just me, or did Sunye get assigned practically no lines or personality at all?
Yubin's rap bit in the English version of Be My Baby isn't nearly as good as the Korean version. Sad!

And I think I know their names now! Lim~
Posted 04 February 2012 - 04:51 PM
How can you possibly have not known their names yet?! You introduced me to WG back in like 2009!

And I know Sohee because Heechul apparently really likes her and they were on Happy Together (? I think) where they didn't match up with each other and Heechul threw a fit. But she hardly had any lines in the movie, so I don't have any real clue about who she is other than being the hot one or something.

You should learn all of them because they're the sweetest girls on the planet.
That's a trait most female k-pop singers have though.

But anyway! The girls had a CF in Japan, and here's them speaking Japanese better than basically everyone but Kara and Sooyoung, http://www.youtube.c...player_embedded
And there's going to be a Japanese version of Nobody, that song will never die, and I hope it never does.
Also Sunye and Lim were with Will Smith at the Korean premiere of the new MIB

The Wonder Girls will be releasing an album called “Nobody for Everybody,” which will have the Japanese version of their Korean Single “Nobody.”

Allow me to hug you for a creepily long amount of time. Everyone hates on the poor girl, it's nice to see some love.
LIM! I want to hug her and squeeze her into itty bitty pieces~!

Featuring Yeeun and Sohee for those of you that aren't familiar.
