You can watch the video here.
SM: We need to make SHINee more appealing to Japan.
SHINee’s Manager: But Taemin’s already gets 79% of the screen time.
SM: No, I mean the other members too.
SHINee’s Manager: So we should share the screen time equally among the members? That’s reason-
SM: I was thinking more of, well, how do I say this… think Siwon on the “Mr. Simple” cover.
SHINee’s Manager: Ah! So why don’t we have them frolic, I mean, dance, while getting each other wet*?
SM: I knew I hired you for a reason! Now only if we had someone to write lyrics for f(x)…
I literally laughed out loud when I heard the Japanese version of “Lucifer” for the first time…
… and then I laughed out loud again when I saw the Japanese PV of “Lucifer” for the first time.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a fan of SHINee. “Lucifer” in Japanese sounds awkward though. I’m not sure whether it’s its choppiness, or how alien-like it sounds, or maybe it’s simply the stress in my everyday life that made me react so strangely to it. It doesn’t possess that “bad—” factor that the Korean version holds, and without that aspect of the song, it kind of falls flat.
I wasn’t wowed by the video either. It felt really redone and the quality wasn’t astounding. I didn’t dislike it, but I am eagerly looking forward to SHINee’s comeback in Korea. Whenever that will be.
I apologize for the lack of updates again! I have a lot of more serious (and less serious) things to write about, but, you know how it is…
got some spiders to slay homework. Homework. Homework. This was a really spur of the moment post, so sorry if I come across as condescending – definitely not my intention!
What do you guys think of the Japanese version of “Lucifer”? I would appreciate your opinion, whether it be on the song or the video.
*the sad thing is, this didn’t occur.
Key They didn’t even get wet! Disappointing.
