f(x) Makes An Exciting Comeback On M! Countdown With "Rum Pum Pum Pum" + Lyrics

f(x) had their first comeback stage on M! Countdown today with the first single off of their "Pink Tape" album, "Rum Pum Pum Pum", so take a look:




Comeback stage with intro:


This was an excellent comeback stage for the girls, even though they were lip syncing (as is the norm for SM artists for their first few comeback performances).  They looked fabulous and those plaid outfits really translate well to the live stage.  I was iffy on Krystal's hair color on her until today, but I really like it.  I thought it made her look a little washed out in the mv but it looks better live.  I also really like Luna's shoes (they look like they could be Celine fw 2013 but I'm sure they're just a great knock off), Krystal's shoes, and Sulli's whole outfit.  Victoria's is cute too, especially her tights.  I'm still not a fan of Amber's outfit but she's working that shool boy chic as well as she can.

Let's talk about their choreography for a minute.  Kevin Maher was the choreographer for "Rum Pum Pum Pum", and I wish I could personally tell him how much I enjoy it.  I like how he stayed true to f(x)'s gliding-yet-angular-pose dance style while giving them something unique to work with.  These aren't recycled dance moves that everyone has done already, and I love that.  I feel like I often see other Kpop girl groups co-opting each other's dance moves, so it's always refreshing to see something different.   I can't wait to see more comeback stages and/or a dance practice video so we can really see the whole thing without so many cuts to their faces.

I was curious about the lyrics to the song since it's supposedly about a wisdom tooth, which I thought sounded kind of odd.  Then I actually read the lyrics and realized that the wisdom tooth is obviously a euphemism for love, and not an easy love either.  Check out the lyrics below:


f(x) Rum Pum Pum Pum lyrics:


(Krystal)
Hello, you probably heard of me at least once
Your wisdom tooth

(Luna)
You probably think you experienced it all when you were young

(Sulli)
Attention boys! I'm a bit different
I pushed aside all the others and took my place

(Victoria)
Deep in your heart (purum purumpum)
Very secretly (purum purumpum)


(Krystal)
I will pierce through your hearts wall and grow (I will pierce through
Your hearts wall and grow)
A special experience rum pum pum pum (A special experience rum pum pum pum)
It will hurt as if your head will shatter (It will hurt as if your head
Will shatter)
A new experience rum pum pum pum

Ouch, your head will hurt
You won't be able to sleep
You won't forget me easily
Your true first love that appeared all of a sudden, rum pum pum pum

(Luna)
What to do? You probably expected one who grew up straight

(Victoria)
But I'll be crooked and torture you, I'm not easy

(Amber)
It was like this or like that, there is so much talk but you can never know
Until you experience it
Even if you struggle to pull me out, that spot will be empty forever

(Krystal)
It's probably not me

(Sulli)
Yeah, it probably is
Now I'll make our own little secret

(Krystal)
Shh! Our own little secret

Ouch, your head will hurt
You won't be able to sleep
You won't forget me easily
Your electrifying first love that appeared all of a sudden, rum pum pum pum

(Krystal)
I will pierce through your hearts wall and grow
I will pierce through your hearts wall and grow (x3)

(Luna)
It will hurt as if your head will shatter
It will hurt as if it will shatter (x3)

(Sulli)
As if it will shatter

Ouch, your head will hurt (your head will hurt)
You won't be able to sleep (won't be able to sleep)
You won't forget me easily (you won't forget me)
Your true first wisdom tooth that appeared all of a sudden, rum pum pum pum

Your true first love, a special experience, rum pum pum pum
Your electrifying first love, a new experience, rum pum pum pum
Your true first love, a special experience, rum pum pum pum
Your electrifying first love, a new experience, rum pum pum pum

I've talked about how f(x) is not your usual Kpop girl group, and this song just illustrates just how different they are.  It's a true female empowerment love song, 2013 style.  While most girl groups are talking cutely about how they wish oppa would look at them, f(x) is letting you know that you will fall or them, but that they're difficult and yet hard to forget.  Love it.


What did you think of f(x)'s first "Rum Pum Pum Pum" comeback stage?
