This would be pretty crazy, but how does this work? xD

Well, congratulations, girls for being crowned Best — freaking — New Band in the World. [1]

I am now waiting for you down here for a small concert a la acoustic style. ;)

I gotta admit. I got a little choked up with this music video, and I’m totally pumped for Sodagreen’s upcoming new album… also titled What is Troubling You (你在煩惱什麼) — which, I have to admit~~~ comes at a bad time when Bibi is coming up with her new album and the Brown Eyed Girls are coming up with her nifty-licious repackaged Sixth Sense.

Did I tell you? I pre-ordered Sixth Sense and I ate it up like a sucker.

What makes me even more of a sucker, however, is that I had just pre-ordered the repackaged version too. Alongside Bibi’s new album.

Anyway, this new wonderfully sad and strangely uplifting music video comes from the brilliant mind of Muh Chen Yi Ren, from GrassJelly Studio — who also worked on my favorite Sodagreen MV… Incomparable Beauty [MV]. When these two get together, they make magic.

The lyrics seem… simple. I mean there’s not much lyrics… but I’m having issues with the double negative hahaha. I guess this is going to be my next Chinese class then!

Pinyin will do until then!

I think the director of Sixth Sense and Midnight Circus [1] might be my favorite director this year, though I gotta admit that Bounce is giving it a good run for its money with not only The Kingdom of Fools [1] and Hebe Tien’s My Love [1] and Joey Yung’s gorgeous MV hybrid with a perfume CM commercial, LOL – One Flower and a Thousand Tress [1].

But there’s just something really fierce about Sixth Sense spelling sex without being tacky, instead being completely fierce about it. I mean, Narsha did make me uncomfortable as she frolicked as a prisoner… but that was the only thing. The rest of the video/song was hard-hitting pizzazz… especially when we reach Miryo’s rap and she drops her verses adding the “grazie” and “gracias” — by the way, her “gracias” was almost on point perfect. xD

If you don’t know who directed Sixth Sense, why don’t you go to YAM Magazine and search for it.

I’m also considering buying my first ever mini-album… but it’s really costing me to go against my album etiquette. It’s like I’m going against everything I stood for all these years. Can I do it for BEG?

This is my list of Best 2011 MVs at the moment.

I’m not really familiar with SunnyHil, but my curiosity was peaked when I caught a teaser for Midnight Circus that had BEG member Ga-In, just about the time when they released the video for Midnight Circus~

I dug it… kind of a mix of music that wasn’t exactly Kpop… it had something — I was caught inadvertently saying “midnight cir-CUS!” once or twice. And the video is class… really moody… almost a bit cabaret-y punk-y, but not really that… it wasn’t the Dresden Dolls, but it was interesting Kpop. xD

So I was really surprised with their MV for Pray — which once again peaked my curiosity with the teaser. There’s a certain sci-fi horror feel to it… combined with this creature that looked a bit like an orc combined with a little bit of Sloth from The Goonies.

It’s just an outstanding music video overall — such a despicable (yet so familiar) storyline! A ‘monster’ lured in with affection that’s suddenly betrayed by the people that he thought care for him. Amazing.
