yay so this is the first post at saranghae pink!! i’m so glad i got to do it because i’m so awesome and i just deserved to be at top.
this post is about so nyeo shi dae’s “visual dreams” pv. if you haven’t seen it yet, the video has been embedded above. take the time now to watch it before reading on.
finished? ok, good.
first off, i’m dying to know. what. happened. i don’t want to say it was the whole fact that this was for intel because snsd did an excellent job with that cyon cooky pv. i also don’t want to say that it was their choreography because the choreography itself was really good and they’ve proven on numerous accounts that they can be great dancers and can stay on time with another. their rehearsal schedule — while i don’t actually know it — i’m sure can’t be that easy going, lastly.
so, really? what happened? their dancing was off, they kept forgetting the moves it looked like, sunny was absolutely boring, people were getting in the way of each other, jessica turned the wrong way… yeah i just don’t know.
have we been fooled by the special effects of their music videos? this is the most personal we have gotten it feels like with the dancing segments from so nyeo shi dae; have all of their previous pvs been so great because we are looking at it from different angles? are the special effects hiding what looks bad? their dance versions don’t look as bad as this pv, to be honest. so i don’t think it’s anything like that. (if they can make a dislocated leg look good without a bunch of flashing lights and special effects, then it’s obviously not them and it’s not the special effects.)
the only thing i can think it is is the budget. i’m probably far from right when i say that but i just can’t… help but think maybe intel sideswiped them into doing this at the last minute and they had barely any practice time and herp derp this was the best they could do. i just hope that they realize how… bad that makes them look. not as a group but a company whole. i thought smentertainment’s standards were higher than this.
ok i think i should just score this and be done with it.
their costumes actually aren’t that bad. the white and black outfits really relate back to the whole theme behind the song — computer technology, intel products, etc. they’re simple, make the girls look good, and seem easy to move around in. their make-up was very simple as it usually is. fresh faces ftw. the glittery dresses i didn’t like as much only because i think it was mainly used to just… make them look good. some of them weren’t very flattering on the girls either. hyeongeon’s hairdresser still hates her.
effects: 1 point
saying they went a little overboard might be an understatement but at the same time it still makes sense to the music video. the only reason this portion gets one point is because it really just… sometimes i have to ask myself what exactly is going on. why is there glitter falling from the sky? also did anyone notice that box that was just inconveniently in the way on the right? did someone forget to move that…
continuity: 1 point
there were points where you could actually tell where they were cutting for the next scene. one example is when sunny finishes her last solo and she stops moving. the next scene, she’s dancing with everyone else. some of them were singing at the wrong times. need i continue?
choreography: 2 points
i actually thought the choreography was very interesting. it matched the theme of the song perfectly and struck me as a very fun and interesting dance. i’m actually kind of tempted to learn it. they didn’t perform it so well in high heels but… that doesn’t mean that the choreography sucks per se.
relativity: 2 points
it was definitely relevant to the song. i think this was the only point they actually hit on the head.
overall score: 7 sunnys
not too bad. they’ve done better. i will just sit here and anxiously wait for them to release their next pv, hopefully after 30 hours or more of practice in the studio.
