I really don’t mind TINY-G, as a concept it is pretty funny… even ludicrous — a girl group based on the concept of short girls (heh), who happen to be a b-boy group… kinda. You can see more of that vibe in their debut last year with the appropriately Kpop-introductory title of, you guessed it: Tiny-G [MV].

Kpop concepts, titles and debuts aside…

I don’t mind their latest single, MINIMANIMO, which I totally thought was a misspelled “Eeny, meeny, miny, moe,” but seems to be more like a play on words of the phrase “Come back to me” against the opposite “Get away from me,” in Korean which goes with the concept of a girl going through a break-up that seems fine, but in reality is having a hard time. See Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely) [MV] by P!nk for pop bipolarity xD.

As with anything Kpop, the music video is glossy and Kpop’s standard with near minimal but colorful set designs. Though the colored rooms bring back good memories of Destiny’s Child’s Say my Name [MV]. And as per usual Kpop tradition, no director credit.
