D-Unit's “Luv Me” MV

pivotandsway 7th-Nov-2012 05:21 am (UTC)
I love the song! The choreo & video are much better than their debut. The styling is pretty much the same in that I have no idea what they're going for but I love RAM's cropped leather jacket/high pony look.
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 05:27 am (UTC)
i have no idea what their styling is about too though. its a little on the punkish/rock side yet also the fashionista-ish with the makeup.
pivotandsway 7th-Nov-2012 05:33 am (UTC)
yeah I mean they're supposed to be the intersection of rock & hip hop so I get that it. it just doesn't seem to translate very well. like the feathers wth is that about. they're also very short and purposefully coding themselves as being androgynous or at least not stereotypically feminine so I guess so it's a bit different than what we're used to idk. But studs everywhere!!
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 05:24 am (UTC)
my babiesssssss ;a; i love the song already, and the mv looks so much better than their debut one. i dont really like the makeup on soojin though, it makes her look weird.
yujin looks so fierce and i like it. ;w; (but cute yujin in missin' you is missed)

UJin's conceptual change is very significant as it signifies her more permanent status in the group! Like this whole concept is basically for her. Also I think she gets to be even cuter now like in their sportschosun shoot
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 05:46 am (UTC)
ikr!! ;w; yes she is forever qt but i get this cute vibe even though she is on stage during missin' you days.

sadly yujin isnt the permanent member. ;_; though they focus a lot on her. forever hoping she can be permanent...
pivotandsway 7th-Nov-2012 05:50 am (UTC)
Actually I was reading on the Daum profile of the single and it seems like her status may have been upgraded due to the fans protesting the temporary system, which is why she's still in the group and why she gets to be the center of this promotional cycle. I don't read Korean though. But I don't think what they said in April or whenever is still the case as far as who stays and who goes.
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 05:56 am (UTC)
they said its more of a rotating system where if they go for this concept and this member suits it, they will put her in, and if its another concept that suits another one, then they will switch. im still hoping they keep yujin because she seems to suit most of the concept they will use.
pivotandsway 7th-Nov-2012 05:59 am (UTC)
lol yeah I know. I'm just telling you what I read most recently. Who knows what they'll do next though.
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 06:05 am (UTC)
OH! oh so sorry, i read it wrongly OTL
:c companies are unpredictable as they do things just to please fans and generate more revenue...
pivotandsway 7th-Nov-2012 06:21 am (UTC)
lol it's ok! yeah they are unpredictable. I wish they would just come out and say it clearly but I'm guessing they're not sure what they're going to do themselves. also w/ the whole T-Ara thing it might have been kind of awkward to take someone out idk. It's not like they have a large fanbase yet.
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 10:56 am (UTC)
ikr, some people disliked d-unit just because wooram is boram's sister :c
and how there was this case of BABYs saying they copied BAP due to music core setting them up with a traditional music for a remix during their perf...
strawberry_efeu 7th-Nov-2012 12:08 pm (UTC)
lol omg Music Core has been forcing that traditional music group on one group every show. Open your eyes silly fans!
pivotandsway 7th-Nov-2012 09:34 pm (UTC)
and ppl saying they' try to hard to be ~swaggy~ or hard when they probably wouldn't say the same about certain boygroups or 2NE1 the obvious originator for any girl group who doesn't have a cute concept. w/e tho I think they have a bright future ^__^
hyeonseong 8th-Nov-2012 03:02 am (UTC)
i agree!! they really have the potential, and it doesnt matter if we do not have original concepts. all it matters is the quality of the songs and all!!!! ;w;
dirrtypony 7th-Nov-2012 02:38 pm (UTC)
they would be so stupid to get rid of ujin. shes the only one i really like tbh.
g_odalisque13 7th-Nov-2012 06:01 am (UTC)
okay i missed something. they have a rotating system? so some of them are permanent and some aren't?
sorry for all the questions OTL
pivotandsway 7th-Nov-2012 06:18 am (UTC)
basically. it was like they have RAM & ZIN as permanent members and UJin as a temp who would be rotated out w/ every new album, but it's kind of unclear what the system is currently. Like hyeonseong said, their company has said or suggested that whoever matches the concepts best will promote so there's the possibility that members will be added or removed in the future.
g_odalisque13 7th-Nov-2012 06:37 am (UTC)
so theoretically, they could take ujin out for one album, put someone else in, and then put ujin back in later? so they have other girls waiting in wings?
that's kind of a strange system honestly. i'm used to the graduating system like after school or most j-pop girl groups, but i don't think i've ever seen a company do this. i don't know how i feel about it tbh. ujin really stood out in this mv so it's a shame that she might not be included in their next comeback.
thank you for the reply!
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 10:52 am (UTC)
apparently it seems to be like that from what i have heard from people. but we will never know if they are going to really do this or not because most fans doesn't like it.
supplanter 7th-Nov-2012 10:28 pm (UTC)
The rotating system sounded ridiculous all along... unless all the girls they want to rotate don't really want to be idols and are actually, say, aspiring actresses and a stint in d-unit's just supposed to help them get some exposure.
ai_baka 7th-Nov-2012 05:40 am (UTC)
feeling the song ♥
shintotchi 7th-Nov-2012 05:42 am (UTC)
The song's decent and all, but these girls are waaaaay to into their own swag. All the facial expressions, and the swag dancing (unfitting with the song) is just too much. The random biting the guy in the beginning was also a wtf moment. This is probably a group that should be heard and not seen for me.
sharpietoday 7th-Nov-2012 05:55 am (UTC)
I like the song. Not digging the dance moves though.
realme21 7th-Nov-2012 06:44 am (UTC)
THIS SONG NEEDS MORE POWERFUL VOCALS TO GIVE JUSTICE TO ITS MESSAGE.
I like the melody and all but the way that it is sung is not to my liking.

:/ Disappointed...

Don't get me started on the FAKE SWAG AND CHARISMA
I'd rather see them do something like Orange Caramel's lipstick.
THE ONLY GIRL WHO CAN LOOK CUTE AND SWAGTASTIC IS Goddess Sandara Park.
The rest can't be compared at all

dara? really? lol
reelrecnizereel 7th-Nov-2012 06:57 am (UTC)
I'm Sooooo glad the waka Flocka flame- chief keef stand ins/ back up dancers could tote guns for this video!!!! It really goes with theme!!

One of them look like Zelo LMFAO

All their body movement were so generic & robot looking GMAB.
Basic as hell tbh
maybe they'll grow on me later.

kingalexarnold 7th-Nov-2012 07:19 am (UTC)
i like it but the lack of focus on Zin makes me nervous she will be the one getting removed ;_;
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 04:30 pm (UTC)
zin and ram are the permanent members. :3 (as for ujin... lets hope the company abolishes the system)
falling_empress 8th-Nov-2012 09:28 am (UTC)
Ujin is the best member imo so if they kick her out they're fucked.
4minutesluts 7th-Nov-2012 07:33 am (UTC)
lmao @ the burzum spiked bat
4minutesluts 7th-Nov-2012 07:38 am (UTC)
the song has issues but I really like the main melody

oh well
b1gay4 7th-Nov-2012 07:39 am (UTC)
they are so god with this concept never leave it
zsutzy 7th-Nov-2012 10:07 am (UTC)
i like it, not the avarage cute style
kiminikaeru 7th-Nov-2012 10:26 am (UTC)
lol @ all the pressed 2ne1 stans rn

this is so good!
love_keiko 7th-Nov-2012 01:09 pm (UTC)
GREAT song. i hate the styling, tho.
allegsiseu 7th-Nov-2012 02:39 pm (UTC)
here for this
hyeonseong 7th-Nov-2012 04:31 pm (UTC)
YOUR ICON ;A; SOOJIN BABY
dirrtypony 7th-Nov-2012 02:41 pm (UTC)
this song is soo good. but the styling and the trying be all badass is a bit try hard ngl. i wish they would ease up on that a bit.
dirrtypony 7th-Nov-2012 02:46 pm (UTC)
and omg ujin is so damn cute.
plantbottle 7th-Nov-2012 11:21 pm (UTC)
I love them. ajfshdkfdlhsjkfhskjfhj legit fangirling over Ujin rn
falling_empress 8th-Nov-2012 09:28 am (UTC)
D-UNIT is seriously my favorite female rookie like...ever besides 2NE1 haha.

UJin is SO hot. Like a hot younger version of Sunny [well Sunny is hot too]. I love their styling and their songs are good. I love alllll the clothes.

The only thing I don't like is the fact that the "gangsters" are pseudo-black (cuz all gangsters are black, right? wtf) and the guns look stupid. Violence in general isn't edgy imo.

Also haha it's unfortunate that Ujin's name is shared with a hentai manga artist. >......>
___sasuka 8th-Nov-2012 08:18 pm (UTC)
Wooram is surprisingly cute, lol... I like her style in this vid. The rotating system sounds dumb as shit, so let's not try that hah.

The song is okay, but it really does need some more intense vocals, at least one good belting or something.

And I see the random black dudes in the background to add "cred"...
