Miss A have just returned with a new album called Independent Women Part III. I haven’t listened to the whole album yet, but I definitely will. I just listened to the song I Don’t Need a Man (남자 없이 잘 살아) and… it’s awesome!

At the beginning of the music video you don’t know quite what to expect. Then the cool choreography starts and the song just flows from there on. I had no expectations for this comeback, but this is great. It has the characteristic Miss A flavour, but is still a new sound for them.

I was a bit surprised when Jia started rapping all of a sudden. “Isn’t that Min’s job?”. Then Min chimes in :) .

This video also has the most subtle JYP intro I’ve seen so far :) .

My favourite member is Suzy What?♩. The bright red lipstick kind of clashes with the outfit in the dancing scenes (grasping for something to complain about to reduce fanboy level), but other than that she absolutely glows in this video (imho) 진짜♫. Red shirt *silent man-squeel* (love that smile) 정말♬

Unfortunately, Miss A were in a car accident earlier today on their way to a television recording. It was reported as a “minor car accident”, but they were all taken to the hospital. Thankfully they seem to be fine, since they resumed their scheduled activities after a few hours.

On a side note, I watched Architecture 101 a while ago. It’s a movie starring Suzy. It’s about an architect who gets a visit from a woman who wants him to design her house. She was in the same architecture class as him at the university and she was also his first love. The movie consists largely of the man’s memories of their friendship. Suzy plays the girl in his memories. It was a good movie, but a bit melancholic. Kind of depressing.

Mission for tomorrow: listen to the whole album.
