Girl’s Day – Don’t Let Your Eyes Wander – Music Video Review

7 09 2011

You won’t want to let your eyes wander when you watch Don’t Let Your Eyes Wander. This music video from Girl’s Day has them doing what they do best – being cute. The cutesy acting in most K-pop music videos usually come across as over-rehearsed or trying too hard, so it’s a wonder how Girl’s Day makes it look so natural and well, cute.

The thing with this music video is that it gets too cluttered and messy for you to make out exactly what is happening. There is some sort of story going on, but I couldn’t figure out what on earth I was looking at. With both the song and the video being so busy, it’s hard to focus on both at the same time.

But that is just a small tiny nitpick on what is ultimately a fun and entertaining music video. The concept is confusing, but at least it’s something different. The tune of the song is actually quite addictive, but isn’t one of those stupid hooks a la Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry. I like the way that the girls are singing, and I don’t even mind that there is no dancing here.

Whoever assembled these five girls (SoJin, JiHae, Minah, Yura, Hyeri) deserves a medal, and whoever is writing their songs deserves one as well. I said in my review of Twinkle Twinkle that Girl’s Day needs to try and stand out amongst the crowd. Don’t Let Your Eyes Wander proves that they have already achieved that and more.

To be honest, I’ve never been too big on GIrls Day songs. I think it’s a shame they didn’t stick with Nothing Lasts Forever, because I really do think Miinah and Sojin have decent vocals, and frankly, none of their songs even remotely show it >.<

They're still young, so I guess the cute thing is more dignifying for them than it is for SNSD or whatever, but I really hope they mature their image/music soon…

Well… if they are good at being cute, then I think they should just continue being cute. No harm trying something different in the future, but whenever K-pop girl groups try to do that, it usually turns out terrible (SNSD’s “Bad Girl”).
