The QiRanger Adventures

Oh really now…

One of the more popular songs in Korea these past few months has been SHINee’s Ring Ding Dong. I’m not that big of a fan of that little tune and the chorus just doesn’t make any sense. In fact the whole fantastic – elastic switch is just strange.

But…

In class the other day, one of the kids pointed to a cheerleader on screen. (The cheerleader was jumping up and down… looking quite happy). “Teacher, she’s elastic!”

All I could think to myself was…. I’m sure she is…

    I wonder if the kid knew what he meant by ‘elastic’, I’m sure not the same thing that went through your mind… and erh.. through mine 😉

    • I know she had no idea what it means… I asked her to explain elastic and she couldn’t give me the meaning. I told her it meant stretching and making things longer. But, like some many other countries, Korea is guilty is putting in English words just to have an English word there.

  2. Haha!

    Sadly, I have to admit I like the song 😛 Well, I don’t really listen to the lyrics, but the rhythm of it.

  3. lol, one of those moments where you have to stop yourself from snickering!

    From the little I’ve heard of it, K-Pop seems like a throwback to the 90s era of boy and girl bands, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls etc, that type of stuff! Ugh, my little sister used to listen to that type of music all the time in the ’90s, it was torture. That’s one thing I’m not looking forward to about moving to Korea, being inundated with crummy K-Pop! 😦

    • Oh, they love their K-Pop, and I don’t see it going anywhere soon. It’s all about the image and what it can promote.
