This week’s tune is one I can’t listen to without smiling. I’m sure a lot of that probably has to do with the fact I can’t help but imagine Hugh Grant popping into the MV at some point with a very flamboyant “Pop! Goes My Heart” but the truth is, even without images of Huge Grant in my head, SNUPER’s “Platonic Love” is a really fun song and one I’ve happily added to my K-Pop playlist.
For those of you who may not have a clue who Snuper is, they debuted back in November of last year (2015) and are the first idol group from WidMay Entertainment. Their debut track, “Shall We Dance” was super cute but this is coming from someone with a hopeless addiction to fluffy bunnies and snuggly boyfriend concepts. I know, I know, I really need to find a cure for this addiction but how the heck am I supposed to do that when you’ve got videos like this one out there in YouTubeLand!?!
I mean SERIOUSLY! You couldn’t ask for a more perfectly sweet and adorable concept and that hair! OH GRACIOUS! Hair at that level of perfection makes me swoon something awful! Or wonderful… Not really sure on that one… Maybe it’s both???
Whatever the case, I’ve been harboring a bit of a soft-spot for SNUPER for the past four months and now they’re back with “Platonic Love” and seriously, I just can’t with these boys! With a song that brings back all the fondest memories of my childhood… Groovy music… Fantastic fashion *giggle*… Roller skates… I just can’t help myself! I mean watch this video! It’s just… I don’t even know what to say about it. Just watch it!
SEE!?! Maybe this is just my inner 80’s child coming back to the surface after *ahem* way too many years of repression or maybe I’m just in a mood today… I’m not really sure. All I know is I’m really loving this song (and this group)… It makes me just wanna dig out my sweatbands, spandex, and leg warmers and dance around my house as I listen to it over and over and over again. You know, I really miss my Rainbow Brite leg warmers… *sigh*
What I love even more than a nostalgia filled MV is a choreo video that makes me swoon and well, once again Snuper doesn’t disappoint. I mean have you seen this video???
Between the fabulous jackets and the hair and that heart-stopping, breath-catching, OH HOLY CRAP WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME wink I feel like I must have saved an emperor in my past life or something because truly, I don’t deserve to be this happy. Maybe I’m just too easily pleased or something. I don’t know. All I know is every time I watch either one of these videos my heart is happy.
Obviously I’m a fan of Snuper’s new track and I probably should try to keep my distance because, you know, my bias list is already a million miles long, but I can’t resist cuteness any more than I can resist great music, a good story, delicious food, fantastic hair… Okay, so I have problems resisting pretty much everything wonderful in this world but whatever! We all need some source of happy in our lives, don’t we? The point is, “Platonic Love” makes me happy and… Oh jeeze! All the giggles! No… I just need to stop now… (Obviously it’s been a very long week…) Can’t. Stop. Laughing.
Anyhoo… Now that I’ve exposed all of my silliness to the world, I’m gonna wrap things up here and go and work on my St. Patrick’s Day feast. (I can hear the soda bread calling my name already… Yum!) While I’m slaving away in the kitchen, I’d love for you to take a second and tell me what you think of Snuper’s new song. Do you love the 80’s vibe as much as I do or is this cute retro boyfriend concept not really your thing? You know I always love hearing from you so be sure to let me know what you’re thinking by leaving me a comment below!
