I'm still going to talk about some songs that came out earlier this week, namely TVXQ! and their new comeback mv, "Catch Me".
Ya know, I like this song quite a bit. I like that it's more electronica based than their previous cd and I would even like an instrumental version of the song. It's just the type of song that would remix well and I'm very into the dub step elements, though a lot of people seem to be tired of having some dub step thrown in with their Kpop. I listen to quite a bit of non-Kpop related dub step so I liked it immediately.
Now, that's what I thought was good. What was NOT good was the mv and the choreography. The song was choreographed by Tony Testa, who did the choreo for SHINee's "Sherlock". "Sherlock" was really epic so I'm pretty surprised at this mess he created. I can't believe that poor Yunho and Changmin actually have to do these cheesy as hell dance moves. And when I say cheesy as hell, I mean just plain bad. I kept cringing in the first minute of the mv, but then it gets better... until this:
No... just no. I just can't with that.
There are some parts to the choreography that I think are pretty cool, like the whole arm thing.
Looks kind of awesome, though I've heard some people say it was a little try-hard. But wait... are they dancing in milk?
|What the hell?|
There were small glimmers of kind-of-awesome in a whole lot of dimness. At least they weren't performing in a box like so many other SM artists are forced to. They get to travel to other places, like the movie Alien's space ship set.
Ah well... at least we get to see them perform it live, though the dance seems pretty strenuous. Those TVXQ! men are used to it though.
Check out their just recently released dance practice in the well known SM Entertainment practice room:
TVXQ! "Catch Me" Only Dance
Still not a fan...
My other favorite song from the album is called "Viva". Take a listen:
What did you think of "Catch Me"? Did you like the song or hate it? Was the mv great for you or did it work your nerves? Leave me a comment with your "Catch Me" feels.
