I don't care about the song so much as that video isn't really good to spank to. Shocked

They're still hot, but I miss the short shorts and high heels those girls wore a few years ago.


You're absolutely right-- no spankapalooza here. Neutral

You guys "spank" to female Korean dance vids? What are you 12?

Metaphorically speaking...Why, do you watch K-pop for the "quality" of "music"? Rolling Eyes

Girls' Generation's latest song "I Got a Boy," which was released at the beginning of the year, is already proving a hit. As the music video is being viewed on YouTube at a faster pace than "Gangnam Style," some expect the song to ape the success of Psy's viral hit.

"Foreign fans are more interested in the song partly because it has broken out of the typical K-pop mould," said popular music critic Song Ki-chul.

SM Entertainment, the band's agency, said, "We expected local fans to say that the song feels a little strange to them, but we wanted to try various new avenues as we regard the song as a cornerstone to enter the U.S. market."

As the song targets the global market, the composers consist of people from four different countries. Including SM Entertainment's producer and director Yoo Young-jin, British, Norwegian and Swedish songwriters participated in writing it.

The big question now is: can Girls' Generation follow in the oversized footsteps of Psy?

Experts say the band stands to benefit as Psy has already paved the way and laid a strong framework by meeting famous producer Scooter Braun and engaging in various promotional activities in the U.S. Going down a similar road, the girls plan to release a new album via Interscope Records, a major label in the U.S., this year.

"We are preparing a number of new songs for Girls' Generation's new album, including an English version of 'I Got a Boy,' and they will travel back and forth between the U.S. and Korea," the agency said.

"The music video for 'I Got a Boy' is a feast for the eyes, much like 'Gangnam Style' was, due to the dynamic choreography," said music critic Kim Zakka. "Close cooperation between SM and Interscope will play an important role in its success."

I wonder if those British songwriters also get the old 'can't get a job in your own country' jibes. Judging from the quality of the song they probably do.

their management company has finally understood that it's better if most people abroad can't understand a word they are singing.
