Lee Hyori – Bad Girls

After my raging on the music video quality of Miss Korea [MV], Hyori had teased with her second single, Bad Girls, which I admitted to myself looked like the complete opposite to the first single in concept [1] by lyrics alone. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it, but hey! I do!

Due to last time’s controversy, the Making Of Hyori’s latest album, titled Monochrome — which has just been released, is being well-documented. Hyori is collaborating with a number of producers including Norwegian team Dsign Music, who composed the music for the Hyori-penned Bad Girls. And the music video? Oh my gosh, it’s a hoot from the get-go.

It actually makes the song.

Directed by Cha Eun-taek (who apparently also directed Miss Korea), the music video for the single is reminiscent of Hyori’s playful U-Go-Girl [MV] days but with an extra EXTRA dash of hilarious only because of MiniHyori. MiniHyori is beyond words. Then there’s those crazy evil eyebrows. During the whole video which chronicles Hyori’s fictitious growing into her badness culminating in the Sharon-Stone-leg-opening Hyori that vouches for animal rights in protests~

There’s a lot to take in from the video, including an appearance from Park Joo Hyun of Spica.

Can you spot the sign that says “What the hell am I doing here???

— EDIT —

There’s also a Dance Version of the video.
