Beast – Good Luck music video

Korean music video for Good Luck by pop group Beast, title track of their sixth mini album which was released in June 2014. Haven’t paid much attention to K-pop lately, this song caught my attention though, love the beat; and I like the fact that most songs are co-written by one of its members.

It’s good to see a K-pop group that actually makes music. Don’t get me wrong, appearance is a huge part of K-pop music culture, often more important than talent, and I’m hooked with that too. Just that it’s refreshing to see some real “artists” in the industry, which is unfortunately rare/unappreciated in K-pop.

Orange Caramel – My Copycat MV

Korean music video for My Copycat, the fourth single by pop group Orange Caramel. A fun song, and props (to Digipedi Studio) for doing something something different in an MV – besides the wacky concept, they also integrated a few mini games in the video (prizes will be given to a number of winners).
