The song is in Japanese, but I’m still going to call it K-pop.
BIGBANG is a Korean boy band who apparently has been around since 2006. Hugely successful, “Beautiful Hangover” is the group’s latest venture into the Japanese market.
- the song!
- the video — very stylish and great angles
- the Ja-Rule sounding dude (I believe his name is T.O.P)
Would have been better…
- if the song was in Korean (they use a lot of English Engrish to make up for their Japanese)
- if it didn’t have the Ja Rule-sounding dude’s parts. Sorry, but Ja Rule is so 2001.
Overall, of the two new singles, I like “Beautiful Hangover” more than the over-autotuned “Somebody to Luv”:
I hope they release Korean versions of both songs.
(Sigh. Waits for the day SNSD come to India… )
