I’ve been in Korea for three months now. And I’m slowly getting to grips with K-Pop (Korean Pop).. I saw a few K-Pop bands a few weeks ago in Incheon including Generation Girls, Super Junior and Taeyang.. (and noticed the Mayor of Incheon sitting at the front nodding away at Generation Girls.. gosh loves his music doesn’t he.. ) After going to a party and seeing everyone dance the moves to ‘Sorry Sorry’ by Super Junior.. I have become more inquisitive about this K-Pop scene actually. I’d written off my disinterest to do with the language barrier. But the expats around me knew the dance moves surprisingly well.. and now I’ve found myself with a wee addiction to ‘Sorry Sorry’ by Super Junior..
It’s gotten so bad that I’ve started acting like a 16 year old – you know….like… super imposing yourself on band photos… writing.. ‘I love SJ’ all over the books in form class…
I guess that last one wouldn’t be so bad if I wasn’t the teacher..
Anyway I’m pretty sure that when everyone moves to a foreign country they go through this. This is completely and totally normal behaviour .
But you probably want to know the band I’m talking about.. the band.. hotter than Backstreet Boys.. SEXIER than JLS..
I know you might want to sing along..so here are the english lyrics to the chorus (the best bit):
‘Sorry Sorry Sorry Sorry
I I I first
For you for you for you I fell
fell fell fallen baby
Shawty Shawty Shawty Shawty
Eyes are blinding blinding blinding
Breathe is stifled stifled stifled
I’m going crazy crazy baby’
Can anyone explain what has just begun? Is this the beginning of.. no.. I can’t say it..
