Today (the end of the world) SNSD started releasing teasers for their 4th Korean album. The album (and title track, I guess) is called I Got a Boy. They will make their comeback on January 1st and the album will be released the day after.
The first teaser video consists of the entire music video for the song Dancing Queen!
This song is kind of TaeTiSeo (sound) meets Gee (looks). It’s a remake of the song Mercy by Duffy, but with new Korean lyrics. I like it! It’s a bit nostalgic in the way the girls all have the same hairstyles as they did when promoting Gee. At the end of the video we get to see a short teaser for I Got a Boy, which sounds like it’ll be something completely different.
Ohh… Now I’ve read that a lot of the footage in Dancing Queen is actually from 2008 and that the song was intended to be released back then, but couldn’t due to copyright issues. No wonder it looks so Gee-like.
Dancing Queen is already out on iTunes.
Girls’ Generation also started releasing teaser photos. First out is Hyo-yeon:
Update: added Seo-hyun and the rest of the teaser pictures.
I really like Tae-yeon’s second picture (makes me feel like it’s going to be a good day ). And Yoon-a’s. Sunny’s merry-go-round unicorn picture is a bit “wtf”, though. Yu-ri looks mighty hot.
I’ve listened to this song a bit more now and watched the video a few times and I like it even more. In addition to the “cat paw bbuing bbuing” aegyo dance I really like the part at 2:38 and the twisting at 3:42.
