Video of the Day: INFINITE H "Without You" Feat. Zion T.

I totally slept on doing a Video of the Day post on INFINITE H's "Special Girl", but I wasn't nearly as into that song as I am into their newly released mv "Without You".

Ok, fun!  I am in love with the artsy Kpop-meets-hip-hop vibe of this mv and Hoya and Dongwoo are the perfect hep hap idols to introduce it to the masses.  I enjoyed everything about this mv, from the twerking on down to the rapping.

Those hips don't lie!


The outfit and set changes in this video are impeccable.  Normally I wouldn't be raving about paint splattered, bejeweled or oversized-floral-and-stripes-curtains patterned suits but in this instance it works.  They blend or contrast seamlessly with the sets, and I even actually like the ubiquitous stationary car scene.  The neon green bisecting the black and white really pops, and I have nothing but good things to say about the black and white vs. color scheme they have going on throughout.

Let's talk about the song now.  Zion. T's voice adds such a sweet counterpoint to the '90-meets-2013 melody, with Hoya and Dongwoon laying in some flaw free rapping.  I like.  I will be downloading this song as soon as possible.  In fact, here's the iTunes download link and you're quite welcome.  Haha wait... Can I tell you just how much I laughed that part of the iTunes permalink is "inpiniteuh".  Funny.

Is it just me or does this song seem more like it's all about putting Dongwoo front and center?  I don't think I'm going crazy when I say that I could have taken way more screencaps of Dongwoo than of Hoya here.  Hey, there's nothing wrong with that.  The focus is so often on Hoya as the dancing machine and the beastly idol of INFINITE, but in INFINITE H Dongwoo gets a chance to shine, and I like that a lot.

You might not know it, but Dongwoo is extra beastly too.  Here he is auditioning for JYP, along with a few other pre-debut videos that showcase his incredible talent.







Is my bias showing?  Probably, but that's because I always have a soft spot for awesome dancers like Dongwoo.  Plus he's just got that certain sexy something, which is evident in that knowing smirk and those slinky moves of his.

As always I have to give props to Woolliment for doing such an outstanding job with INFINITE and all of its variations.  Woolliment never skimps on anything to do with promoting INFINITE as a brand and it shows.  They consistently deliver excellent music (Except for Sunggyu), MVs and costumes, and they've been doing this since the beginning.  I definitely can't say that about every entertainment company.

What did you think of the "Without You" mv?


INFINITE H- "Without You" lyrics English trans.

Even when you’re not here, 
I’m frustrated, Even when I have no time, 
I keep on waiting, When you’re not here
Even if I’m all grown up, I’m naive

When I walk you home
And stroll alone in the night
I smile again at your message saying 
“Go home well”
Because I miss you so much
Every time I call you on the phone
The caller tone feels really long
When you’re not at the place that 
I lay back on because I’m tired
When I can’t see you on a very sunny day
When I open my wallet and see your smile inside,
I think of you so much

When you’re not here
When you’re not here, I miss you
I want to ask you if you feel like that too
These days, 
these kind of words are the saddest to me
I want to see you, but

When you’re not here (When you’re not here)
When you’re not here (When you’re not here)
When you’re not here (I’m Without you)
When you’re not here (When you’re not here)
When you’re not here (When you’re not here)
When you’re not here (I’m Without you)

When you’re not here, I watch the TV by myself
When you’re not here, Even if I try to take a stroll
It feels somewhat lonely, It’s only when I walk with you
That I feel relieved The ice breaks You really feel so nice
But oh my, because I might drift 
away from you for a moment
I pay attention to each of my text messages
I feel like I’m becoming a fool, When you’re not here

Baby baby tell me
Baby baby whisper to me
Baby baby if you also feel the same as me
Grab my hand girl
When I’m not there just like when
you’re not there for me,
Baby raise my voice
Girl please let me be your love

When you’re not here (When you’re not here)
When you’re not here (When you’re not here)
When you’re not here (I’m Without you)
When you’re not here (When you’re not here)
When you’re not here (When you’re not here)
When you’re not here (I’m Without you)

I wanna feel you
We’re getting stronger
I wanna listen to you
Cuz I love you so much
I wanna feel you
We’re getting stronger
I wanna listen to your voice
Song, my honey

Now if I look behind me
I feel like you’ll be there
I feel like your cute hand is in my pocket
The pillow I hug to sleep seems to be just like you
Yeah everywhere I look, it feels like I see only you

I feel like you’re going to come and back hug me
When I just listen to your voice, 
I feel like I’m with you
When I’m tired I feel like 
I’m hearing you calling my name

When you’re not here
When you’re not here
When you’re not here
When you’re not here
