After their successful debut with LaChaTa, and then followed by Chu~! (listen to these two songs on my post, K-POP Girlz), f(x) is back with their latest single entitled NU-ABO. Victoria, Amber, Luna, Krystal, and Sulli are back to rock da house!

Check out the official Music Video from SMEnt.

The Song

Now… for those of you who are wondering “what the heck does that title mean?” NU-ABO can be interpreted as new blood… as in ‘the new kid on the block’. The song is about a new girl who is eccentric and is always made fun of. But really, being different is not always bad, right? People just don’t know her that well and therefore cannot comprehend her unique preference. Check the full lyrics yourself.

NU-ABO has a nice beat and a ‘poisonous’ repeated words/phrase in the lyrics that can easily sneak into your head and linger there for a good long time, so don’t get freak out when you find yourself unconsciously humming this song while you are working or studying.

The Dance

As with LaChaTa and Chu~!, NU-ABO has a quite intricate dance moves that are difficult to follow by laymen except for several parts. Yet it is very fun to watch, it’s fresh and energetic and definitely represents the spirit of a NU-ABO.

The Outfit & Appearance

The first noticeable thing from these five girls from f(x) in NU-ABO music video is their hair. Theirs are colored/highlighted with bold colors and are done in quite unique ways. Not only their hairdos, their outfits are unique as well. I will give you some pictures that I capture and crop from the MV:

Victoria: What should I do? they say I’m pretty but quirky…

Amber: Don’t worry, they shall soon see that you are more than just looks

Come on, Krystal! Tell us the result of the LOVE METER ^^

Victoria the leader… still looks elegant with bold red highlight

Amber is the coolest, though this hair style reduces her mysterious air…

Luna has a nice blond highlight that suits the outfit perfectly

Krystal strikes with Cleopatra style. It’s beautiful! though her bangs on the 2nd pic looks a bit weird…

Sulli… cute overload! >_< I’ll give extra pics of her, because seeing her smile just make our day brighter!


So Nyuh Shi Dae (SNSD) or Girls’ Generation has a new song called “runDEVILrun”

Surely you remember these 9 adorable girls from Korea right? check out my K-Pop Girlz post if you’re not familiar with them. Maybe some of you have fallen for their cuteness in “Gee” and “Oh!” But now don’t be surprised to see them with a dark and sexy concept (pretty much like Kara’s Lupin? you decide).

The Outfit & Appearance

Tae Yeon

With or without bangs, she looks nice.


Fany looks beautiful; this hair style suits her well.


The elegant Yuri. I prefer her straight hair rather than her wavy one.

Yoon A

Some people think she looks like a cute doll with this style of bangs…sorry to say, to me, when I look at her close up, she resembles Dora the Explorer…I think the bangs is too thick.

Hyo Yeon

Hyo Yeon looks fabs with her semi-wavy hair. Too bad she doesn’t really get the chance to show off her dancing skill in the MV.


Sica’s black streak makes her look cool. And check out the way she stares…whoo! No man dares to mess with her I’m sure.


The black hat looks cool, but the curly hair? I don’t think so. Straight or semi-wavy would look much better for Sunny.

Soo Young

Still maintain her short hair style, I see. Though I prefer seeing her with long hair, I won’t lie and say Soo Young doesn’t look nice with her short hair.

Seo Hyun

This maknae looks older than she actually is, thanks to her sleek long straight hair.

Their Black outfit (that somehow looks like Hyun_A’s style in “Change”–just my personal opinion, don’t throw me flames, please ^^)

White on white? Ummm…okay I guess, as long as it does not hurt your eyes…^^


Be careful, boys… Girls these days can shoot right into your heart!



Last but not least… Guess who this is! Hint: one of SNSD’s lead dancer! and one thing that makes me curious…what’s with the pin (can you see it too?), does the hood come off…? hehehe…

A while back, my friend came to my house and asked me, “Do you know Kara’s new single?”
I said, “Uh..no; I don’t keep up with the latest K-Pop.” Then she showed me this MV called Lupin, which she defined as ‘Dark & Sexy’. And indeed it is.

KARA “Lupin”

The Song

It’s catchy. Yea, it can grab your attention right away, especially with Nicole’s English part at the beginning, and the repetition of the word “Hallo”. It’s an upbeat song suitable for dancing anyway. The content of the song itself is not hard to understand; it’s about being number one, being in the front or on the top. Surely, if they want it, these girls can ‘take all of the world’ with their beauty and talents.

The Dance

Like KARA’s other songs’ coreography, Lupin dance is not difficult to learn (if you wanna dance along with the girls, no need to worry). Just think sexy and a little bit teasing, then add some power to the moves.

The Outfit & Appearance

from left to right: Gyuri – Hara – JiYoung – Nicole – SeungYeon

sleek black

angelic white

Black and white outfit never fail to create the atmosphere of elegance.

Nicole and SeungYeon have their hair cut, which make them look sexier. Nicole’s bang covers her eyes oftentimes, and I think it gives off a mysterious aura.

SeungYeon & her now-short hair

Gyuri still maintains her wavy long hair, but I think it’d be better if she get a straight one like Hara and JiYoung. A straight hair seems more suitable for the outfit, and I bet she’d look more elegant. Apparently, she did have her hair straightened, as you can see in their live performance at SBS…see how gorgeous she becomes?

Gyuri may be in charge of being the Beauty Goddess; However…the one who looks the most beautiful in the MV (in my opinion, fellas…please dont get mad if you disagree) is Hara! The straight hair really really looks good on her (compared to her previous wavy hair) because it makes her more mature. Two thumbs up for Hara!


Yea, this part is not important…I just want to mention it ^^. In the MV, there’s a part where Gyuri, Hara and JiYoung sat on a big golden crescent.

This somehow reminds me of the MV of f(x)’s Lachata…

f(x)’s Luna in Lachata MV

Lupin’s crescent looks more fabulous though, because there are twinkling stars on the background. The gold and black color really look good together, don’t you think?
