As an Indian I'm allowed to feel offended at this right? =___=

why would you feel offended?

This is so random, lmao. Are they trying to break K-pop into the Indian market.

No. It was for MNET's Yoo Seyoon's Art Video. He gave them a mission to create a Bollywood themed video like PCD's Jai Ho. ^^

What did I just watch?...

Things I never thought I'd say: How is 4 minute's Hindi? (Or whatever they are speaking)

holy brownface and racial stereotypes, batman! O___O

the girls look good, tho.

One was an actual Bollywood actor and I'd hardly call the other brownfaced! ^^

my parents speak hindi all the time and their pronunciation was off but this was qt even if they're not my usual cup of tea.
pivotandsway 20th-Jun-2012 04:34 am (UTC)
o is it actually in Hindi? someone told me it wasn't

It's cute and all, their effort, dancing whatnot.... But I was pretty offended. :/
pivotandsway 20th-Jun-2012 04:33 am (UTC)
it's cute but I can definitely see how it's problematic. does anyone know what language they're singing in b/c someone told me it was still korean
sohnyong 20th-Jun-2012 04:39 am (UTC)
nope its hindi!! ((or something resembling it))
odd_fish_stick 20th-Jun-2012 04:34 am (UTC)
not sure if brown face...

Randomly! How many Indians are in this post rn!

Or from the subcontinent in general. (me!)

I know it's for a show now and even tho it's called a parody it doesn't seem like they're trying to be that funny or mocking so I was hoping this was like a present for their Indian fans or something although I'm assuming they don't have that many. I'm glad they actually tried to sing in Hindi even if it's not necessarily well-pronounced. It seems like they tried their best. idk. it's still cultural appropriation.
girlsday 20th-Jun-2012 04:54 am (UTC)
In a way it was. In the show they spoke about the different places they'd traveled and dances they'd like to learn or do. Sohyun was interested in belly dancing which brought them to India and how no one from Korea has ever done a Hindi release. They thought it'd be interesting to do for fans there.

The saxophone player is an Indian actor living in Korea and he helped them with the 'MV'. The only part I can see people taking offense to is the Korean actor but he's not in brownface IMO, he's tanned but it's nothing extreme.

I think it's a cute and adorable production. ^^
