f(x) – Electric Shock MV

Note: This video post is not a comment on anyone on f(x)’s personal life.

f(x)’s latest music video is finally out. No pun intended.

The song is called Electric Shock — directed by… who knows. Seriously, Kpop. — and is an electropop dance song describing how falling in love feels like an electric shock. Simple hearts-a-flutter things like that.

A YinYueTai Official SM Entertainment version is available.

I’m not a very big f(x) fan. I have three of their tracks on my iPod, which I recently purchased off of iTunes because I’m a good fan like that. However, I do love scouting YouTube comments on their videos because of the love people have for Amber. Scratch that. The love girls have for Amber.

Electric Shock has a LOT more Amber than I had seen in other songs. She usually gets her rap verse and that’s that. In this music video, however, we got several close-ups of her, and she gets different lines throughout the song. The girl has swag — she obviously sticks out, and even if you’re only a little bit “alternative,” chances are your pick in f(x) member is Amber.

Plus, she speaks English, Mandarin and Korean (and possibly Taiwanese, but I’ve yet to see any proof of that), so she’s cool in my book. The common thing with the people I’ve discussed f(x) with is “I’m not a very big fan, but I like Amber.” LOL

The idea of Amber — it’s not even her alone, because I’ve seen girls scream their lungs out for “the girl who plays Amber” in f(x) dance groups — is fascinating to watch. I’ve yet to meet a guy that tells me, “I’m a guy, and OMG AMBER!” ~

Do you guys (or girls) love Amber?

What is it about her that you like?

    I have a thing for tomboys. Amber is the prettiest tomboy I’ve seen in a while, therefore my love for her. And she is cool as heck, she doesn’t even try but her aloofness makes her so cool.

      @Julyssa Diaz, Taiwanese tomboys are the prettiest, to be honest. I was really surprised the first time I heard girls screaming for the girls who were “playing Amber” in f(x) dance groups. She didn’t even had short hair, if I remember… but girls were shrieking. xD

    “f(x) – her name is Amber” is what my friends and I always say.

    When I was in SMTown NYC I was blown away by the amount of love for Amber. My best friend has a huge crush on her and when this video came out she nearly had a heart attack from all the spazzing. But I digress. One time in NYC I finally was at the right time in the right place to stumble upon the ominous SMTown pink bus. Everyone ran for it.

    I didn’t catch the bus on time though I arrived too late to see who got off the bus. I didn’t have to guess much though because the next thing I know various girls were walking back from the pink bus screaming at the top of their lungs “I SAW AMBER!!”

    Yeah Amber brings all the girls to the yard.
