Song Battle Round 4: Hot Summer vs Touch

The fourth song battle between our two groups compare their latest songs: f(x)’s Hot Summer vs miss A’s “Touch”.

Thekoreanjjang:         Now onto hot summer vs touch?

KpopEncarta:               Yep.

vs

KpopEncarta:             I really liked the Hot Summer MV haha.  All the visuals in this are spot on.

Thekoreanjjang:         A pink tank?!

KpopEncarta:               hahaha

Thekoreanjjang:         A hot pink striped one no less.

KpopEncarta:               Of course.

Thekoreanjjang:         The visuals are on point as you said.

KpopEncarta:               Man, Krystal looks fantastic.  In terms of visuals, this is all 5 members at their absolute best.  I like the song too.  It’s catchy; a good followup for their danger promotions

Thekoreanjjang:         You can definitely see a bit of a bounce in their step.  A confidence they might not have had before their danger promotions.

KpopEncarta:               It’s also a bit more upbeat than their other songs.

Thekoreanjjang:         Yeah its a catchy tune and an interesting one to follow up danger with…then you have miss A with a song that completely contrasts the bright upbeat hot summer with their darker tone.

KpopEncarta:               lol

Thekoreanjjang:         It sucks not having a live performance of this song yet.

KpopEncarta:               That Egyptian dance at the beginning is so weird.

Thekoreanjjang:         Their new MV “Touch” is  my favorite song so far this year. I really am curious to see how their rose dance will play out on their comeback stage.  One of the comments I read said miss A was spelling out their name during that early sequence, but I had trouble seeing it.  But I wasn’t particularly impressed with their choreography as a whole in this song.  while it was interesting in the beginning, I felt it tailed off during the middle and end.  What I WAS impressed with was their complete immersion in the rose theme throughout their MV.

KpopEncarta:               It is a very well done MV.

Thekoreanjjang:         Their lyrics, outfits, and overall theme was captured really well.

KpopEncarta:               You can tell alot of thought went into it.

Thekoreanjjang:         Yeah its not something you notice when you watch it for the first time.  Plus you know me, I like to think a little when I watch a MV.  Hot summer just showed me a pink tank with a catchy beat going “hot summer” over and over.

KpopEncarta:               Min looks pretty good with longer hair.

Thekoreanjjang:         I loved the kaleidoscope effect in the beginning too.  Don’t you feel that the opening has a sort of hypnotic effect on you?  I also liked how they didn’t inject any unnecessary rap lines into this MV.

KpopEncarta:               Eh, i thought the whole intro was weird.

Thekoreanjjang:         Too many times some groups just awkwardly throw in rap lines into a perfectly good song.  Kills it for me. I know there’s a few rap lines in their actual CD version of “Touch”, but I’m glad the MV didn’t include them.

KpopEncarta:               Like CCM? haha

Thekoreanjjang:         Without naming names!!  Lets have a little respect for the man with the alleged Midas touch. I say that half seriously of course.  Back on topic.

KpopEncarta:               He did produce sg wannabe, t-ara, davichi, but yeah back to Touch.  You really have 2 contrasting styles here.

Thekoreanjjang:         One of the very first thoughts I had when I listened to touch was wow JYP is pretty damn talented I never heard a song like this before.  With hot summer I thought wow a pretty catchy beat and fun song, but something I feel like I’ve heard before.  Therein lies the problem for me.  I don’t want to go as far as saying Touch has more originality, but I like it when groups try to go out of their comfort zone and try out new styles.  I didn’t see any risk here with hot summer especially as a song following danger.

KpopEncarta:               True.  I’m giving this round to miss A.  As you said, it’s something different than we’re used to hearing, and i feel more thought was put into the MV.  though visuals i def give to hot summer

Thekoreanjjang:         Yup, but taking note of their whole performance I have to give it to miss A. Which leaves me at 5-3 miss A going into the final round.

KpopEncarta:               Tie ballgame for me.
