Korea, Korea, Korea!

So I've somehow sucked myself back into the whole Korean obsession thing again. So I've hunted down a few Korean bands. And several korean videos...And I'm trying to teach myself to speak Korean again...And once again I'm proving how much I suck at this whole second language business. But whatever. Here's my report of the weeks events.

BANDS

Band: Witches
Best Song: There She Is
Why: It's kind of old school Korean music mixed with modern alternative. I luff it.
Worst Song: Go Beach
Why: The beginning is odd, and the sound is just....Not my style.
Other Comments: I've only just ordered their 2nd album, and I can't find their first one ANYWHERE (if you have one you'd like to sell, you'd be my eternal best buddy...). Oh, check out Chocolate. I really like that one as well.

Band: Code Y
Best Song: Island
Why: The guitar in this is perfect. It's very deliberate, and is reminiscent of good metal music. I guess.
Worst Song: Motel Blue Moon
Why: The music is great, but the vocals ruin it, if you ask me.
Other Comments: This band has talent...But slow doesn't really work for them. It feels like it's dragging them down...

VIDEOS

There She Is - Witches

Loveitloveitloveit. Watch for the puppy at 3:05. Oh, and a guy in emo glasses, a scarf, and a polka dot shirt. I'm one happy camper.

Cute McDonalds Commercial

Aww. What a cute little kid. Not to mention they say McDonalds funny.

Banana Milk Commercial

That little girl is seriously freaky. But the commercial is funny. Yayy for monkeys.

Colbert Report & Rain

So technically it's an American video...But c'mon! It's Stephen Colbert in giant sunglasses talking about Hyundais!!! And him throwing the TIME magazine? Girliest throw ever.
