The Girls are back and bringing it from out of this world! Girls’ Generation have returned with an absolute belter of a J-pop tune that is going to be released on the 18th September 2013. Co-written by Junji Ishiwatari, who has previously worked with Superfly, alan, FT Island and SHINee, the song has an addictive chorus that’ll have you hooked from the first opening bars.
And while I could wax lyrical all day about how much I love the song, tonight I’m going to be reviewing the promotional video/music video for Galaxy Supernova. And I think the PV is an awesome accompaniment to the song.
Nope, this isn’t a remake of Gee!
The PV begins by referencing Girls’ Generation smash-hit, Gee where the band was decked out in jeans and white t-shirts. It quickly cuts to one of the style concepts – think a Gap advert meets 70s sci-fi and you’ll come close. The whole music video is set against an LED screen back drop which is very reminiscent to Justin Timberlake’s Rock Your Body.
It’s bright, flashy and in your face from the very start. All of the girls look flawless and the second outfit that they rock takes the retro sci-fi theme further and sees the group channel their best Betty Jetson looks.
Flawless! The dance moves are on point. While the choreography looks deceptively simple, you can tell that it’s hard. The other thing is, of course, they never miss a beat. For me, SNSD (and any other SM Town artist), are absolute professionals. They don’t make mistakes. Ever. Not even a hair is out of place in this video!
Sooyoung – A star is born
The stand out performer in this music video is Sooyoung. She’s owning every frame like Angelina Jolie at the Oscars. Someone else taking centre stage? No worries! I’ll still steal the scene. Sunny giving her cutest aegyo? I will out fierce her and her new long hair. I am living for Sooyoung in this music video! Here are some of my favourite Sooyoung moments!
Everyone else is like, no no, look away – Sooyoung is staring you down.
Aegyo? Pft. I amout fiercing Sunny with my right arm.
Yes, bitches. Number 1.
Fierce! Sooyoung isn’t even my favourite member of Girls’ Generation but I have to admit that she is owning this music video like it was the juicest piece of bulgogi ever! I wave my white flag to you, Sooyoung, I wave it hard. (oT-T)尸
Highlights from the GALAXY SUPERNOVA music video
But that’s not to say that there aren’t also many other highlights. One of them is the crazy around the world dancing and the kicking parts. It’s generally awesome all round. But, for individual scene stealers, I present to you Jessica, Taeyon and Yuri.
Winking and pointing – too cute! ^^
Do you think Yuri could be a hand model if she ever quits SNSD?
Overall, I’m going to say this is an awesome PV from the girls – one of their best! They music videos are never crazy but with their styling, choreography, natural charm and absolute flawless delivery I can’t fault them. This is going right up there as one of my favourite SNSD songs so I salute you, galactic Girls’ Generation! Live long and prosper.
