I loved Super Junior in their early days, but cannot stand their recent stuff. This new music video is called Mr. Simple, and I’m back on the bandwagon.
First off, I like the way this music video is presented. The set looks very clean and majestic, definitely big enough to house this gigantic boyband (ten out of thirteen members are here, refer to Wikipedia for more information). There are lots of lighting effects that might make you dazed for a second, but it’s not that bad for the most part.
Our boys dance with an incredible amount of precision, and you get some crazy moves here and there. Super Junior’s vocals are pretty good, and they sing with enough power and conviction. Just like in the insanely popular Sorry Sorry, there are those split screen shots of individual members that look cheesy but cool.
The only negative thing I can say about Mr. Simple is that the chorus sounds stupid (yikes!) in the same vein as Sorry Sorry (which I hate). But other than that, Mr. Simple manages to be more edgy than anything I’ve seen SuJu done before, and gets a thumbs up from me.
