After reviewing Boyfriend’s Obsession MV, I was inspired to make this post of props and plots that have overstayed their welcome in K-Pop. Raise your hands for these K-Pop cliches and give me a “Hallelujah!”
1. Fake Tattoos
(B.A.P. – Power)
…….you’re all going to disagree with me because of the shirtlessness aren’t you…
(2NE1 – Ugly)
4. Lip Rubbing (Guys, come on, I thought we were over this!)
5. “The Science”
(D-Unit – Luv Me)(Boyfriend – Obsession)
6. The Brick Room
7. Look at me, I’m holding a gun!
(Block B – Very Good)(Spica – Russian Roulette)
You know what, I think I want Cool Guys Don’t Look At Explosions to stay. Yunho and Changmin sold it to me. I mean, as long as a band member doesn’t get a hook for a hand or something after the fireworks I think that one is still acceptable.
