Ten Music Video Highlights of 2012
6. It’s Kpop Crack!
Big Bang – Fantastic Baby
We’ve grown accustomed to it. Set designs, colors, and the budgets to hire stylists and a team of designers to make style whores drool. Kpop music video standards seem to defy a music industry that shrinks music video budgets year after year  — remember? Big Bang spent like $200k USD on their music video for Love Song [MV], one of the few defying that is Ayumi Hamasaki who spent $1M USD on her 2010 music video for Virgin Road [YinYueTai] [YouTube].
But sometimes Kpop music videos defy westernized logic, and all we’re left to thinking is… WTF have we just seen?
