Seems like they went for a more sensual approach to this compared to f(x)'s quirky cute take. The lyrics of this version are way better but I think it was smart to give the track to f(x) considering it turned out to be one of their biggest hits and the "hot summer" hook flows better than 'takeover"

Lmao there are already line-distribution video the fandom is so quick XD
I wish we had a clearer audio because I enjoyed it lol and hearing Jessica with the girls again is always welcomed :')
I knew they almost got this song but wasn't expecting the concepts to be entirely different. f(x)'s version is more youthful/quirky/energetic while SNSD is more mature/sexier. Both groups were complimentary so the nuances make sense
Still glad it went to f(x) in the end, it brought them so much success at that time!

OMG yesssss mixed emotions when I heard Jessica's voice!

It’s interesting how this video suddenly leaked after so many years, but I’ll take whatever ot9 I can get! Hearing Jessica here is especially nice, especially the second chorus!

But I definitely prefer the f(x) version, this version kinda sounds like a b-side though. Line distribution wise, I do think Seohyun sings the 2nd verse instead of Taeyeon, and it feels like someone else (Yoona/Sooyoung) sings along with Yuri for the bridge?

Yuri’s lines fit her so well, I was into that part and the general message of the song (not all of it but most) was better

But the chorus was not catchy at all for me and overall the song felt very....mediocre, it works way better as Hot Summer.

goddamnit i sorely needed these lyrics in 2011 kpop

hell i sorely need these lyrics in 2018 kpop

Yea while the song isn’t catchy to me, reading the lyrics in English, I can completely get behind it. Loving yourself, being confident contributes to your attractiveness, not trying so hard or focusing so much on how to attract the guy you like, I much prefer those messages.

Wow it's strange to realize how smol Tiffany's parts used to be back in the day...

Also this high quality rendition is the only version that matters lbr:

Yaaaas ❤ the one and only hot summer.
Its so strange that my two favorite girl groups have recorded the same song 😱

Edit: when you think about it it's pretty weird that this song came out around the time when snsd debuted with ITNW. They went for the innocent concept, while Babar & Mandy, who were the same age as the soshi girls, were dropping fierce bop after fierce bop

Omg true it's crazy how young they were? I'm not sure what's worse...

Also this song was okay in 2007 but in 2011... come on.

looking back it's gross how much they sexualized mandy from the start, she was only 16 when she joined the band and they couldn't really give the others the sexy image because they were muslims. she had her first FHM shoot when she was only 17 and a year later was voted as the sexiest woman alive. it was fun back then but thinking about it now... :/ i'm just glad that she turned out rather "fine" (if you don't count her endless plastic surgeries)

16 year old me was super into Monrose, this album was gr9.

Edit: I just checked and this isn't on Spotify.... uhm????

wow ok rude. time to storm some offices.
goshipgurl 22nd-Oct-2018 05:44 pm (UTC)
Their label doesn't exist anymore so Spotify deleted their songs (and the songs from their former labelmates, that's if they didn't move to a new one). I think labels have to pay to get songs on Spotify and if no one pays for it then.. 💁

Holding a fundraiser asap. You'd think the entire catalogue of their label would probably be owned by a mother-company or something :P

Hoot was the turning point for Tiffany. This is my hill

This song is so funny to me because I know & love it the most from the original Monrose version so learining of f(x) was a trip to me.

can more demos leak i miss ot9 so much
the rap part was pretty fire
nana_the_dwarf 22nd-Oct-2018 04:21 pm (UTC)
Can they just leak all OT9 demos. In high-ish quality like Genie or CMIYC. Plz, thx.
timetobegin 22nd-Oct-2018 05:12 pm (UTC)
This is a super rough demo lmao. Nice hearing it though, especially that the instrumentation in this version is alot closer to Monrose's original than the f(x) one.

Also I need more demo leaks in Kpop
kenziekinz09 22nd-Oct-2018 06:49 pm (UTC)
I just need to know if there was a jungsis “who sang it better” moment
aeries_amethyst 22nd-Oct-2018 07:43 pm (UTC)
I've never been much of a fan of this song lol XD But I can dig the different feel that each group was going for. I never imagined that we'd finally get the Soshi version after so many years. I thought this would be locked away in the dungeon forever. The demo sounds rough but I loved the lyrics and the rap. The f(x) version is catchier and it gave the girls a hit but I am curious as to what the polished version with Soshi would have looked like if they performed it. Now can SM release all the other OT9 demos?
