SNSD - Hoot MV
This is going to be a short post. Basically, I disliked this song when I first heard it. Bored me to death. Then it started to grow on me as the week went on. Now, seeing the video, I understand why SM chose this as the lead song. And, I might even be happy about it. Basically, with this song, SNSD has matured, leaving the cute and saccharine behind, hopefully for good. If "Gee" was their cute pre-teen phase, "Oh!" was their teenage phase and "Hoot" is when they've finally become young women in their twenties, which is what they are (but you'd never know!). And that, I can get with. The video isn't amazing, but I love the choreography and I appreciate Choi Siwon's hot self making an appearance. The mini-album wasn't bad either; that is, I actually listened to more than one song all the way through, and liked one of them. This is a big step for me as I have severely disliked any song other than their lead single since they debuted. Dare I say, I might be becoming an actual SNSD fan? (gasp!?) Okay girls, I'm onboard. Just... no more cutesy Christmas songs. They make me puke. Thanks.
Random side note: I am older than every single member of this group. Does that weird me out? Yes. It also makes me feel bad that I earn less money than them despite having gone to college. What is my life?
