Girls Generation vs Shoujo Jidai ‘Gee’

aka an excuse to post ‘Gee’ multiple times.

So, Soh Nyuh Shi Dae aka SNSD aka Girls Generation debuted in Japan as Shoujo Jidai. And they’ve just released their biggest Korean hit, ‘Gee’ in Japan. (In Japanese, obviously.)

First of all, I don’t care what anyone thinks, I love that Minho is in the JMV as well as the KMV. Hyungwhore gets hardly any screentime in his own MVs, and I don’t really see why it should have to be a Japanese boy just because it’s a Japanese single.
As for the song… SNSD’s Japanese pronunciation isn’t great. Sooyoung and Seohyun are best, obviously because they are the most fluent in Japanese. Also, hearing the lyrics in Japanese is a bit of a mindfuck. It just sounds wrong. Because I’ve heard the Korean version SO many times, and I do have a fair idea of the lyrics, and how they should sound. So hearing:

yaba chincha chincha honto wa, No no no no no!
yappa meccha meccha ki ni naru, Oh oh oh oh oh!
hora chowa chowa kono mama, Gee gee gee gee gee
koishitai no (Oh yeah!) aishitai no (Oh yeah yeah yeah)

instead of

Neomu banjjak banjjak nooni booshuh no no no no no
Neomu kkamjjak kkamjjak nollan naneun oh oh oh oh oh
Neomu jjarit jjarit momi ddeullyuh gee gee gee gee gee
O juhjeun nunbit (oh yeah~) oh joeun hyanggee (oh yeah yeah yeah~)

is just very strange. I don’t dislike it. It’s more like just because I’m not expecting it.
Also, this is amazing but it seems like the girls voices are even higher in Japanese. Especially Sooyoung and Sunny. Especially especially Sooyoung because I never expect her voice to be as high as it is.

As for the MV itself, JMV has a much higher budget. Sets and fashion and camera-work all looks better. That said, I have always though Gee MV was a bit of a clusterfuck.

I mean, in the original you had the messing about in the store, two choreo scenes, and the random angelic sitting laughing towards the end all messily edited together. And I sort of thought the JMV would take the oppurtunity to streamline things a bit, but no. Indeed, we get extra scenes.

I don’t even know what was going on there. It just felt a bit messy and all over the place.

Actually, my big problem with the MV is how creeped out I am at Tiffany and Sunny’s faces. Let’s be frank, plastic surgery is not uncommon in Asian entertainment. I love Jaejoong, I love Eeteuk, I love Hara, I love Uee. I have no problem with plastic surgery. But… With Tiffany and Sunny, it’s like their faces have changed enough to be noticable, but not enough to look really different. There’s something strange about watching them, that there’s something wrong I can’t quite put my finger on. I do feel a bit sad when I look at Tiffany because she was perfect before.

I sound like I’m complaining but I do love Gee.

Kpop Shimeji


Latest thing to do in K-pop fandom. Shimeji, or, desktop buddies.

Aren’t they just presh? I know have BIG BANG’s TOP, G-Dragon, Seungri, Daesung, Taeyang; SHINee’s Jonghyun, Taemin, Minho, Onew, Key; 2PM’s Junsu, Wooyoung, Taecyeon; SNSD’s Jessica; 2NE1’s Bom; and B2ST’s Junhyung and Yoseob, all running around and being adorable. Taemin especially is too precious. Bom has the best graphics, Key has a huge variety of looks, TOP is just plain hilarious.
I swear though, I literally spent all day trying to get BB boys to work. e.e

So far, the main idols discovered are:

TOP (Stand Up tour)
GD (Heartbreaker)
Seungri (2 – Strong Baby + casual versions)
YB (casual)
Daesung (casual)

Onew (casual?)
Key (all era)
Taemin (2 – Lucifer + all concept versions)
Minho (3 – all concept + real face + casual versions)
Jonghyun (Lucifer + RDD/Lucifer + casual versions)

Yoochun (Sungkyunkwan Scandal ver)
Junsu (JYJ + Orange Caramel versions)

Jessica (Genie)

Bom (FIRE)

Jay (real face)
Taec (without you cat)
Wooyoung (casual + fox)
Junho (without you)
Junsu (cat)
Chansung (without you?)
Junsu/Wooyoun (couple)

Junhyung/Yoseob (couple)

All of those can be downloaded here. Or I can up to 4sh or MU if you want.
MF folder
uploaded by rawrbunnies@tumblr I believe.

There are also anime shimenji. Hetalia, Chobits, Death Note, Kingdom Hearts, DRRR, Reborn, Vocaloid, Panic Room, Thriller Restaurant, FMA, RDJ, South Park… And there are Ouran ones floating around but a dl link has yet to be found. Ask if you want me to upload.

To make them work:
Extract using winrar. (I know there have been problems with other programs, but winrar def works!)
Click the .jar file. Not the .exe. It will either be named Shimeji.jar or ClickMe.jar. A symbol should appear on the lower right of your toolbar, and the shimeji will fall from the top of you window. ^^

The most common problem is clicking the .jar file does nothing. If so, try renaming the .jar so it’s the same as the .exe file. Make sure you have the latest Java update. Try dling from a different source – I had to dl another BB file because my original dl simply didn’t work.
Feel free to ask if you have questions of want a better explanation.
