I'm shocked right now... I really am. If you've read this blog, you know I'm reallly not all that into Kpop girl groups, especially not cutesy, extra girly ones like Girls' Generation. I knew this mv was coming out but I never even paid attention to any of the hype. I'm not even sure what made me watch it, actually.
What I liked: the choreography, the color pop outfits and the candy colored backgrounds. In my opinion SNSD hasn't had choreography or a song this good since "Genie". They even dance it well, with no awkwardness in sight... Whattt?!

You can tell the members of Girls' Generation really had fun filming this mv. I see lots of geniune smiles and authentically enthusiastic bootie popping going on so color me impressed. Here I was thinking they couldn't dance. Guess they were saving it all up for this one.
I also like that the choreography is sexy without straying into the "I'm a stripper" category. Very nice.
UPDATE: Husband and wife team Nappy Tabs were the masterminds behind this super fun choreography. They've done some of my favorite choreography on So You Think You Can Dance and also were the team behind BoA's "Only One".

As for the fashion, I like that they veered away from their tried and true pumps-or- knee-high-boots-with-bootie-shorts-and-a-blazer fashion and went with the more up to date '80s and '90s inspired Jeremy Scott/Wildfox Couture/Joyrich type of style that's really big nowadays.
I already spotted some Jeffrey Campbell sneakers and an Adidas x Jeremy Scott jacket and I'm assuming the girls are swathed in all those brands I mentioned and more.

HyunA went for this look and feel in her mv for "Ice Cream" but I actually think the SM stylists did a better job here. I guess it depends on what you're looking for, whether you're going for the super sexy HyunA look or the fashion forward and cute look of the SNSD girls.
What I disliked: The many, many tempo changes. I'm hoping all that was just for the mv and it's not what the official single sounds like. Crossing my fingers in 3...2...1. Yes, this means I might actually be downloading song... Imagine that!
What did you think of the mv? Should I find more "I Got A Boy" fashion? Leave me a comment to let me know!
