K-Pop Obsession: SNSD's The Boys

This weeks music video is none other than Girl's Generation (SNSD) "The Boys" freshly released yesterday October 18, 2011. Now unlike all the other music videos I have featured so far, this song is actually not stuck in my head. I love SNSD, but I was not really in love with the song. There has been a lot of hype and teasing for the release of this music video that also coincided with their return to Korea and the release their third album "The Boys." SONe's have been waiting patiently a whole year for their comeback, but maybe that's why it was a little bit of a let down?

Don't get me wrong, these ladies are as beautiful and talented as they've always been and their English pronunciation is spot on, but the concept for the video was...weird...It didn't make sense to me. Why are they in a diamond world and then in rose petal world? Why is Jessica throwing a dove? What does this have to do with boys? Why? The girls certainly had a different vibe in this video, gone were the "cutsey" innocent looks and replaced it were more alluring and mature that sense, it was refreshing and followed their overall concept of their 3rd album. SNSD will most likely be going worldwide, Interscope Records in the US have listed them as one of their artists and they have billboards up in New York! Can't wait to see if they will debut in the US!
