Song Battle Round 2: Chocolate Love vs Love Again

In the second song battle between the two groups, we compare their phone promotional songs:  f(x)’s Chocolate Love and miss A’s Love Again.

KpopEncarta:               The phone songs then: love again vs chocolate love

Thekoreanjjang:         This match-up is interesting because of their respective promotions.  In America you wouldn’t expect to see top pop artists promote merchandise in this fashion.

KpopEncarta:               True.

Thekoreanjjang:         Yet both groups managed to produce commercially popular songs that were really just promotional songs.  In this case its lg chocolate vs samsung anycall.

KpopEncarta:               Chocolate love is interesting too cuz SNSD also did a version themselves with a completely different feel


Thekoreanjjang:         Yeah you had SNSD’s bubble pop version vs f(x)’s electro pop.

KpopEncarta:               f(x) did a great job in this MV as always, another very well done MV from SME.

Thekoreanjjang:         A lot of things worked really well for them in this MV.  This is autotune at its finest matched with the right attire and sexy choreography.

KpopEncarta:               Pretty much, yeah

Thekoreanjjang:         I would so buy an lg chocolate.  Oh wait I used to own one!

KpopEncarta:               hah

Thekoreanjjang:         Now for miss A love again.

KpopEncarta:               This one is interesting because it’s before min joined them.  Min made a cameo apperance, but this was all Jia, Fei, Suzy.

Thekoreanjjang:         Oh yeah?  Always full of interesting facts, Jon.  Anyway, we have another unique song to critique.

KpopEncarta:               At the very end, you see a shadow walking away that’s supposed to be Min.

Thekoreanjjang:         I thought love again was a pretty fun, upbeat, and catchy song.  I can see why it was successful as a promotional song.  Still i don’t know if it came across as effectively as f(x)’s chocolate love.

KpopEncarta:               True.  At the end of the day, after watching these…

Thekoreanjjang:         Even if this was promoted at the same time as SNSD’s version…f(x) perfectly re-interpreted this in their own style.

KpopEncarta:               I think i’d rather have the LG Chocolate.

Thekoreanjjang:         Yeah the interesting thing is that miss A likes to change around their style a lot through their different promotions.  What I found in love again was a good song, but not one that necessarily highlighted their best style.  This is compared with Chocolate Love which seemed to hit on all of f(x)’s strong points.

KpopEncarta:               Pretty much

Thekoreanjjang:         The end result for me was a more enjoyable song.  I’d have to go with chocolate love this round.

KpopEncarta:               Yep, same here.

Thekoreanjjang:         That makes it all tied up 3-3 again!
