JYJ – Get Out

Can I raise my hands in the air and say, “Halleluja”? Finally JYJ does an MV that is, well, that is JYJ. After the shame that was Ayy Girl (that MV will forever be on my list of “things I wish I’d never seen”) now we are back on track.

Don’t get me wrong, Ayy Girl is a decent track. The MV was… what was that? Whatever it was it was bad. With this song and MV, I feel that JYJ are really doing what they are good at —  addictive dance beats and then the cool choreography. I am a very happy fangirl right now because I wasn’t even able to listen to their The Beginning album. But with their newest, In Heaven, I feel that JYJ are back on track. I have been listening to the album non-stop since it came out and a review will soon be up.

At the same time, I shouldn’t nag too much about Ayy Girl. It was a new direction that was tried out. It might not have worked for me but it did to so many other fans. But I have always felt that JYJ do their best when they produce and sing in Korean.

    I didn’t even like the Ayyy Girl track LOL

    But I liked this – so……….. is it me or does Jae look extra Edward Cullen-esque in this MV? I know I’ve said he’s part Veela and all, but seriously…

    I gotta admit, JYJ is best when they’re singing in Korean. xD

      @amy, I didn’t like the Ayy Girl track that much either – but it had a lovely way to get stuck in my head.

      He does look extra vampirish… it’s cus he has his bangs styled up, that boy should never show his forehead. Plus that he is extra skinny…..

      Have u heard their newest yet? You so should, I think you are going to like it.

    HaHA!! Yay me for being a new fangirl and commenting on my first JYJ post…HaHa! I hate being so late to the party. While I do agree that “Ayy Girl” just wasn’t right, I think the actual album itself isn’t all that bad. In fact, I seem to remember hearing “Be My Girl” on the radio at one point and was at first offended (as I often am with newer “love songs”) until I actually heard the chorus and was all like, “AWWWW! Now that’s just the cutest song I’ve heard in a while!” So, yeah. It sucks that one song can ruin a first impression of an album, but what can ya do?

    Anyway, this is about “Get Out”. I personally didn’t like the beat all that much; however, you are right about singing in Korean. It definitely adds a new dimension to their sound, especially because the level of comfort is significantly higher when a band sings in its native language. I did, however, LOVE the video!

    As regards the “Edward Cullen” remark…I’d have to give that one a great big FALSE! True, Jae’s got ridiculously white skin and is very skinny in the waist but there are couple things that definitely negate the whole “He looks like Robert Pattinson” idea. 1) This man is CUT FOR DAYS! Like, while he’s skinny, you can tell the dude’s healthy and completely in charge of that body. 2) He doesn’t look like he hasn’t slept for three months. He’s not pale, per se, more his skin is just naturally very light. And 3) dude’s just FINE AS HELL! Pattinson, I’m sorry to fans of the faux-vampire, looks like drugs and cocaine…HaHa. Sorry, but he just doesn’t look healthy at all. I suppose the haircut may contribute to the idea that Jae looks like him, but…no…

    Anyway, I’ve said waaaay too much and need to stop. As always, enjoy reading your work, Jules :)
