Today, FT Island‘s new mini-album was digitally (not physically) released. (I know this because I went to two different places tonight, looking for the CD, and both said, ‘Tomorrow.’ *sigh* *growl* I wanted to get it today. *pouts*) I am psyched about listening to it tomorrow, but I made sure to catch the brand-spankin’ new MV for “Hello Hello” as soon as I woke up this morning. (Side note: Didn’t they remember that SHINee released a single of the same name not very long ago?) Watch!!
Song comments: I like the song, but I’m not an unbiased observer. I was a little thrown off when the song changes around the 2.30 mark, but it worked, I think.
MV comments: a. Do they not realize that the scanner recording is of some kind of domestic disturbance, not a fire? b. Does anyone want to try calling 232-5019-482 (The number shown for “LIVE FTC WORLD NEWS HD”)? (Let me know how it turns out.) c. If someone had notified me that they needed foreigners to stage an ‘American'(?) scene, I could’ve totally helped out! d. The storyline for the MV is… confusing. I really don’t understand what is going on! I mean, Hong-ki walks into a smoky building, then finds himself in a warehouse-sized room and rocks out with people he may or may not know, then they all stagger out together? No comprende. e. At least the ‘dance’ looks as easy as the one for ‘Love, Love, Love’, perhaps even easier – just make occasional hand flourishes. (If only they were all so easy to learn…)
All in all, I like it, and I can’t wait to see this song steadily climb the charts!
