Hello beautiful people! 🙂
I am so happy to be able to talk about god (not in the way you’re probably thinking of :P) with their new release Saturday Night! I was actually planning on talking about them in future posts (wink wink 😉 although that doesn’t really give out what I was planning, but it’ll be out soon :D) but I’ll be taking the opportunity early, especially because I am quite excited about this post!
god is a group that was active from 1999 (yes, a long time ago :O ) to 2005, during which they were under JYP Entertainment. In case you were wondering about the origin of their name, apparently god stands for Groove Over Dose. 😛 They have come back together this year (with this album) under SidusHQ. They can pretty much be considered the “veteran boy band” in Korea, being very successful and popular during their time. The members consist of Son Hoyoung, Kim Taewoo, Danny Ahn, Park Joonhyung, and Yoon Kyesang. Just in case you might not be familiar with the group, the name is pronounced g.o.d by spelling out each letter.
Song: I’m really enjoying it! This is just a personal preference but I love Kim Taewoo’s voice (Take into consideration this song 😀 This was totally my jam a few years ago) and his enticing voice was a highlight of the song for me. I really like the groove and catchiness, which seem to increase the more I listen to it. This is the type of song I would listen to on a Saturday night (hehe puns that don’t make sense) when I’m dancing to myself… Is that weird? 😛 I guess I’m saying that it kept me in high spirits and wanting to sing along or bob my head at the least. 😛 I think it still preserves the charm of god but in an approachable song that I can listen to often. I am liking this song and I would totally recommend it 😀 What do you guys think about it?
Video: The video is another side of awesomeness… and I believe I’ve been saying this a lot in the past few posts, but that’s a good thing right? 🙂 I do think that this video might not be as hilarious if you don’t understand Korean… so I’ll try to explain it a little bit. 😛 To give a little bit of context (or at least attempt to), the introduction shows the members together on a Saturday night, and after not having seen each other for a long time, they talk about the jobs they have. Park Joonhyung says he owns a tire factory, Kim Taewoo says he owns around 10 kindergarten schools, Danny Ahn says he owns one of the most popular clubs, Yoon Kyesang says he’s running a company, and finally Son Hoyoung says he’s a fighter. Once the song kicks in, we move into the lives of the members and as we watch the video, we know they weren’t telling the truth. Throughout the video, I was laughing and it was definitely so entertaining to watch. I loved the humor (and how well done it was), like the exaggerated expressions or gestures, and the reality of the situation they were in. I cracked up at 1:45 in the video, because the really tall guy is actually a professional fighter and yet he was trying to fight with Son Hoyoung. I was happy watching the video, but also happy with how the video turned out. There are various approaches they could’ve taken with this video after being away for so long, but the fact that they took humor (and did it so well) was certainly a plus for me. My absolute favorite part is at the end (apparently 12 years ago as it says on the screen) when they’re dancing to their songs, which was not only super funny, but also brought back memories of when I used to listen to those songs (One of those will feature in a future post, the one I hinted at earlier in the post, so stay tuned) :3 I absolutely love this video! 😀
Overall, I really loved this release (both the song and video) and I’m sure many people feel the same way about their return together as the group god. I definitely would download this song! 🙂 I loved god, I love god, and I will love god (especially with this awesome return) :D. What did you guys think about this? Did you guys already know about god? Let me know! 🙂
Hugs from your fellow K-Popper! ❤
