    They should have went with the theme they had at the MAMAs…a little death, a little darkness, carry on with the whistle and a darker tone – the beginning with the whistle and the two meeting had the right suspense…but I think it would have been cooler if they went the route of Bang Yong Guk solo mvs…Trouble Maker has promise but what they did at the MAMAs shows really how far they could of took it and I wish they went there…

    • Anonymous

      i thought it could have gone there too but….. i think it might have gotten ban so i guess they went a different direction in order to be sure that doesn’t get ban.

    The whistling is great. Unfortunately nothing else quite comes to par. In terms of visual, Hyuna and Hyunseung are a hot pair. In terms of vocals, Hyunseung easily out-sings her to the extent where I feel that he is being held back to accommodate for her weaknesses. There are pros and cons in this partnership, but hopefully Hyuna’s popularity will boost Hyunseung’s up. That’s probably what Cube is going for and hopefully it will work because I really want to see more work from Hyunseung in the future. As it is, though, Trouble Maker as a song really isn’t too great.

    Hyuna reminds me of Miley Cyrus for some reason…does anyone else get that feeling?

    • Anonymous

      I did! She reminds me of a sexier, Asian version of Miley Cyrus. No idea why. Something about the hair, expression, and eyes, probably.

  • Djaze

    Not just the video, but the song sounds a lot like JT and Ciaras’ ‘Love and Sex and Magic’. But hey. It’s Kpop so I’m not surprised anymore.

      thank u !! i was looking for the song it reminded me of !!! that’s what it was !!

      • Djaze

        lool:) No prob.

  • Music=Love

    I think it’s agreed, we all like the  whistling. d-_-b But you know this is way better than I thought it would be. I feared the actually song wouldn’t sound anything like the teaser, but because to many times have I had high hopes for a song, but to be disappointed because the song seemed to have nothing to do with the teaser.

  • Guest

    no. my problem with cube is that they really don’t have a distinctive sound or style. this mv looks like a mish mash of big 3 concepts executed decently nothing new or nothing amazing. hyunseung is still awkward but sings well. hyuna has charisma but can’t sing. i was not expecting much from the unit anyway and i don’t think cube’s strategy of pairing their solo queen with b2st’s most underlooked member is going to go well. they might do decently in terms of sales because of their individual fanbases but it undermines 4minute, hyunseung wilts in hyuna’s presence and exposes hyuna’s poor vocal skills.

    The song reminds me of “Moves Like Jagger,” but I think that’s because of the whistling. Overall, I didn’t find it to be a bad song. It was pretty good, but a little overhyped. The sexiness was overhyped, in my opinion. I didn’t find it very sexy and didn’t sense any chemistry between the two.

    • saylor

      I’m kind of tired of Hyuna waving her ass at the camera and touching herself everywhere….it’s not sexy it’s gross. 

      • Mer

        She always comes off (to me) like video vixen skanky.  Not sexy, but extra.

  • http://www.twitter.com/veiledheart VeiledHeart

    Overall, I’m pleasantly surprised. I expected this to be a complete mess, but it’s not. They gave Hyuna just enough parts to give her a reason to be there and left all the heavy lifting to Hyunseung (JS). It could’ve been oh so much worse. 

  • Anonymous

    I wasn’t really expecting much from them, but I wasn’t disappointed either. Uh… that’s pretty much it. Like almost everyone else said, Hyunseung out-sings Hyuna and makes her subpar vocals even more apparent and Hyuna kind of overshadows Hyunseung because he’s so forgettable. The color palette of the video made things seem a little dull and the styling wasn’t anything new or impressive. It’s not a bad song, but it’s not a great one either.

    It’s good. It’s decent, but neither of them really showed anything new, so there’s nothing that really stands out.

    And yes, I love that Cube is trying to promote Hyunseung more, but Hyuna needs to take a break for a while. I forget that she’s actually part of a group sometimes. In my head, she’s a solo artist. And that’s kind of sad.

  • Bstar5

    ITA agree about them having zero chemistry in the MV. There was a lot of hype and I loved the teaser but even with all the sexy dancing and poses, I saw no heat between these two. You know it’s bad when Hyuna has to whip out a lighter and set the room on fire for it to be there. They would have been better off doing the duet while be paired with different people in the video.

    • frou-frou

      Was it just my computer screen or did those flames look green?

  • http://www.twitter.com/hipployta Hipployta

    The MV accomplished it’s goal to get the duo out there…it has almost 500k views in like 15 hours.

    At a few points there was chemistry…at the very end when he sees her in the hallway while they’re acting namely…but during the dance break it’s a big NO. At first I was like, “Okay” but then I looked at the backup dancers getting sexy with it and 2Hyun just looked awkward in comparison.

    Still a good video but they might have went another way for the dance routine LOL…though I like the near kiss dance move because it mirrors the lyrics of “I might steal your lips/kiss”

    As far as the song…well Troublemaker isn’t BAD per se but it is my least favorite song out of the 4 on the album. I love the second song, a ballad between the two, and Hyunseung’s solo is AWESOME.

    Then again I stan for Hyunseung so…merong

  • Gazza

    Maybe i’ll get the instrumental… Also, is it just me or does the title card say ‘JS and Hyuna’?

    • frou-frou

      Hyunseung’s going by ‘JS’ for the Troublemaker project. I don’t know why, though.

  • Anonymous

    i was excited to see the mv but i didn’t expected much from the song. so i pleasantly surprise that i actually like the song a lot. the whole album is a pretty good listen… nothing ground breaking but its good to listen to. 

    i think they did good job with this project…. i didn’t think they will be allow to pull off the concept that they did in MAMA without fear of a ban being sent their way so I think they kinda tone it down a bit in the mv.

  • JW

    personally just find Hyunseung extremely flat. Whether for B2ST performances or collab with Hyuna, there is always something missing when he’s on stage(maybe the expressionless face?).
    MV is okay-ish and YES they have no chemistry together, it’s just how it is.
    Not hatin’ on Hyuna but her white dress is waaaaaaaayy too short.

    • Anonymous

      But I like him flat. He’s Hyunseung.

  • miya

    the song was catchy but it sorta seemed like hyunah was just a feature in the song. plus she tries REALLY hard to be sexy with all those weird facial expressions and ranchy body movements….don’t get me wrong, i think she’s one of the best female kpop dancers but instead of being grown and sexy ( which would fit the vibe of the song) she looked like a young girl who is tryna grow up too fast…

  • Coffee

    I love the whistle tune! And that one part in the dance where he goes in to lean real close. The song isn’t bad, but yeah, this is forced sexy. It may very well likely be because of my view on Hyuna, though. I won’t deny that. But, hey, it’s a lot more tolerable than Bubble Pop or Change (just my personal opinion) to me, so, it goes. I can’t help but to think that if my bias was featured in the video, I’d be jammin to it 24/7. The whistle tune… really catchy.

  • XXx

    The whistling was hot. Wish the bass would’ve gone hard.

    The sexual tension came across as awkward. Perhaps if they were more of a team running from the law or performing a heist it would’ve been better. Would’ve been so cool too. I’m interested in this unit tho. :)

  • Mer

    Was that supposed to be sexy?  They looked extremely awkward together,  no chemistry.  TBH… Hyuna never comes off as sexy to me.  It’s like she tries too hard or something.  What’s up with these young girls?  They can’t do classy sexy?

  • Bervalvic

    the whistling is nice the song is good but he is kind of odd to me in the mv

  • http://profiles.google.com/jcho49 J Cho

    hyuna sells , so cube entertainment is going to sell her :]

  • martian

    The song probably wasn’t, but seeing the concept of it was. The song wasn’t that great, the whistling part however definitely got to me,but after that it was like… wut?? I really like the concept, but I thinkg this should have been a Hyunseung solo feat Hyuna instead :S then again, Hyunseung when on stage doesn’t have a presence as big as his other members, so he is always kind of just left in a corner. HyunA on the other hand is actually a pretty charismatic stage performer. I mean she pretty much brings it on stage (Watched her live at Syd concert and she was pretty good). So I supposed HyunA makes up for Hyunseungs stage shortfalls while Hyunseungs vocal abilities makes up for HyunA’s fail singing… and useless rapping in the song (the song sound good with or without it really)

  • Ryu

    Someone mentioned this on another site and I have to agree with them that instead of going for sexy and they be on opposing sides, maybe it should have been a duo basically out to cause trouble. I saw the concept pictures of them that were released and they looked more like close friends than having a sexual relationship.

     It might not have been what everyone was really wanting; especially from Hyuna, but I think they might have pulled it off better. Cause tbh the video didn’t seem sexy in the parts that it was supposed to, it just looked awkward. 

  • Anonymous

    I was really excited to hear the full song and full MV. 

    My thoughts about the song: it sounded great at first, the groovy tune kinda brought me back to 90s music. Hyunseung sounds smooth, and then came HyunA’s rap. I didn’t think her rap was needed in that song, and that’s pretty much the weak point of the song for me. The whistling was clever and it’s definitely something unique from this song. But other than that, I don’t think this is HyunA and Hyunseung’s song. It’s more like Hyunseung ft. HyunA.

    About the MV: Eh. I will never understand the sexy that HyunA tried to portray. I was having high hope when I saw the teaser (the steamy one) that I would finally get the real sexy from HyunA. And … nope. It wasn’t even a classy kind of sexy. Of course like most people have already said, HyunA and Hyunseung have almost zero chemistry, and it didn’t help that Hyunseung looked like a little puppy (imo) next to HyunA who was really heavy on make-up and dress (damn, sometimes I forgot that she’s younger than me).

    But put aside the acting part, this MV had potential for good story line. Too bad Cube didn’t use that. Still much better than some of SM’s MV this year. 

    (Anyone got the impression of Mr.& Mrs. Smith from this MV? lol)

    I’m a huge Hyunseung fan so he can basically do no wrong in my eyes. He’s just great no matter what he does, even if a project sucks or whatever. I think HyunA is pretty and cute, but she tries too hard to be sexy, which isn’t natural.  Also, these two look more like siblings than star-crossed lovers to me. Since they’re going for sexy, I guess sibling love won’t work. A lot of this IS awkward, but I enjoy it.

  • Anonymous

    jeez… hyunah went REAL britney spears on us here. i know the “no-pants” look is in right now in kpop, but seriously? that gold shirt she was trying to pass as a dress didn’t even cover up her black underwear. i think there’s a fine line between sexy and tacky and the girl has definitely crossed it.

        well they serve the same purpose, to cover your vajayjay.

  • noiha

    weird chemistry. at least junhyung and hyuna share the same frequency. i like the mv and i love the song. it’s definitely better than 4minute tracks this year.
    “The song will probably be made better through live performances” — no, wait. i have faith in hyunseung, but it’s hyuna we’re talking about. she’s a very dynamic performer but sometimes i just can’t stand her vocal in live perf.

  • IZ M

    boring.

  • http://twitter.com/ovenfreshhhhh ovenfreshhhhh ☆

    Honestly, can Hyuna do a music video where she (or anyone else) is not touching any of her private parts?

    • Blasphemy!

      What are you talking about!? That move is their artistic expression of their individuality and they practiced really hard for that move to look effortless! Why can’t you appreciate!!!!???? >_< !#%#!)&*(&&^<3 

      Besides, how else are we (the audience) suppose to know that the artist is or is not a woman!!!???? She needs to show us that she doesn't have a junk in the front … ewwww…/end sarcasmYeah, the whole touching-of-the-crotch as a "dance move" is ridiculous and it's always sad/amusing to see it. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LL4QDJLVFDT2RDIZYBALSE75JE angel29

    I wonder how this will translate on Korean TV knowing how conservative their shows are.  If Trouble Maker tones the performance down by several notches, it would take away the fun out of the concept.  I’m anticipating because I really want to know how this will turn out, for better or for worse.  I’m excited for them.  And I do like the MV.  I grew up watching non-kpop songs on MTV anyway and this is nowhere near what I would call slutty.

  • mika

    They are like brother and sister so I can’t really watch this MV and the performance in MAMA kind of put me off (it’s incest). Besides, never really a fan of this two. The guy scares me and he’s awkward sometimes but i admit his voice is good. Hyuna never seems to appeal to me but she’s pretty to look at and that’s about it.

  • Nana

    My two cents:
    - I can’t seem to like Hyuna no matter how hard I try, because her face and those colored contacts she wears look like one of my ex-colleagues who was, to put it succinctly, a total bitch.
    - This was awkward on so many levels; the chemistry between them, Hyuna’s sex faces at the camera, and that vajayjay swiping dance move.
    - Why do they look in the camera when they’re almost necking each other???
    - Um please tell me Hyuna was wearing booty shorts under that champagne dress.
    - Is it bad that I confuse Junhyung with Hyunseung?
    - Hyunseung isn’t entirely appealing to me either.
    - That cat reminds me of Heechul’s.
    - Seems like Troublemaker isn’t going down to well in my book. Sorry guys.

  • Anonymous

    At the 2:48 mark, when they both have to sing the high note, Hyuna gets this look on her face that says, “You really don’t expect me to hit this shit during the lives, do you?”
       Visually, I like this video. I like the song. But I laugh thinking of the 15 y.o. girls who will flip seeing Hyuna with their oppa. I want to pat their shoulder and tell them they have nothing to worry about.

  • FyahMaster

    Hyuna’s reminding me more and more of a porn star-slut hybrid that beds rich men and her coworkers for fame and money.

  • Anonymous

    I really think Cube is ditching HyunAh’s ability as a real dancer just to make her a dirty dancer…and no,that expression of her–the one that think everyone would cheer over her too much sexiness–is still not working for me.

    I think this MV only emphasizes in “there is no sexy man-woman or boy-girl collaboration in kpop nowadays,so we just kinda want to break through,emphasizing on the intimate scenes which is almost nonexistent in kpop to sell it”.

  • saylor

    I like the song.  Especially the whistling since it reminded me of the classic Bollywood songs.  Lol there used to be a lot of whistling in the good ole days. I really like Hyunas rap too.  Dislike the video.  Some seoulbeats writer was talking about how just looking at Ke$ha made them feel like they would get a disease.  I feel that way about Hyuna.  She just makes it gross.  Super gross.  She needs to step back a bit from this “video vixen skanky” thing she’s got going on.  There is a way to be sexy that’s classy and doesn’t involve bending over, sticking your butt out, and touching your private parts every 10 seconds. 

  • Alexa

    The song’s cute, I like the disco-esque chorus. The MV’s ok. Hyuna looks very pretty, however
    the harder she tries to be sexy (or rather, the more Cube encourages to be more and more over the top, because lets face it, its not like she has any control over the way she is marketed), the less interesting I find her. When 4Minute came out I would’ve bent over backwards for her, but now its all very meh. She may be provocative, but she isn’t cool or edgy anymore and that makes me really sad.

  • Oh Ji’s Ho

    I, surprising myself, enjoyed the song. The intro and ending of it especially.  I am not a fan of Hyunah, between the contacts and the phrase ‘trying to hard’ springing to mind everytime I watch her hasn’t endeared her to me in the slightest.  As a performer though, she is very compelling to watch and the girl can dance.  I consider her one of the better female dancers K-pop has to offer.  She also completely overshadows the male in everyway….Hyunseung who now?  Their complete lack of chemistry kills the whole effect I feel Cube is going for.
