Some Vids

Just wanted to put up a few videos because why the fuck not?

A new . . . I don’t really follow K-pop very closely and I’ve always been shit with names or titles so I’m not sure if this is classified as a Red Velvet project or just Irene and Seulgi, but, at any rate, a new video dropped and I like it. So here it is.

I don’t mind K-pop, it interests me, but in terms of enjoyment? In terms of what music draws me into a place? In terms of an aesthetic? Trot music is much more my shit.

I watch way too many trot videos and performances. I love the shit. And, I think Leonard Cohen’s popularity here can be easily explained by this: COHEN IS A FUCKING TROT SINGER! Since “I’m Your Man” at least, he was just doing trot music.

Anyway, Jae Suk has just released a trot album and I have no idea if he’s being ironic or what. I actually kind of doubt it, trot is serious business. I don’t even care if this is irony because I happen to like irony and, anyway, the video is dead on right and Jae Suk is awesome. It is exactly how most trot videos look except Jae Suk is still about thirty years too young to be singing it. I love this stuff. And it’s a decent song.

And if that’s not good enough, he has a song called Redevelopment of Love, which is just about perfect. I love the strange poetry of that image. The redevelopment of love.

And the next one might be a little specific. Like, you might have to be trying to learn Korean while living in Busan to find this funny but it makes me laugh. Hope it does the same for you.
