Watch the rest of the commercials here.
I give Hyorin a 10 out of 10 for bringing sexy cheerleader realness to her commercial. Goo Hara also snatched some wigs (with a wig on, how appropriate) but HyunA... gurl, you went a little overboard, didn't you??
Hmm... So let's talk about this, shall we?
After watching these three lovely young women dropping it like it's hot while hawking a brand of soju, my mouth was kind of open. You're probably wondering why that is. Well, when I first got into Kpop three years ago, most of the girl groups I was inadvertently introduced to were extra cutesy-girly, like Girl's Generation. In fact this is the first Kpop girl group mv I ever saw:
Totally not my type of thing but I (surprisingly) grew to like this song anyway.
There were a few groups that were sexy but they never seemed overly in your face about it and aegyo reigned supreme. Now the pendelum has swung the other way and sex for sex's sake is in, just like here in the U.S. Well... almost.
See now, I find absolutely nothing wrong with that so don't assume I made this post to bash HyunA, with a side helping of Hara and Hyorin. On the contrary, I'm all about equal rights. If I can sit here and enjoy watching some hot, barely legal Asian guy in a complicated outfit as he rips his shirt off, it would be quite hypocritical of me to have a problem with some Uncle fan salivating over these girls as they try to bootie clap. Damn that's a long sentence. Anyway, you get what I mean, I'm sure.
My problem with it is this one: Will it ever stop? Will it get to the point where we'll be jaded enough to not bat an eyelid at all the grinding and (if I may be so vulgar) pu**y popping? It seems like it. Most of the Youtube comments on these commercials seemed to be full of praise for these "goddesses" and their fabulous bodies.
I, for one, am kind of saddened at the passing of all the so-called morality, but I AM glad to see some of that cutesy stuff go bye bye.
Lastly, since I'm not one to pass up a chance to be snarky: Is it just me or did HyunA do something to her face? She looks a tad tight in the cheekbones.
As usual, let's discuss! Leave me your thoughts in the comments below and I'll be sure to answer back.
