I’m always obsessed with SECRET because they’re my fourth favourite K-pop girl group after Brown Eyed Girls, T-ara, and Girls’ Generation, but I’ve been, like, REALLY obsessed with them this past fortnight. Aside from my usual fifty plays of “I Do I Do” per day, I’ve been combing through endless photos and videos of my wife Hyosung and watching “Good-night Kiss” performances on repeat, so a fresh SECRET fix was sorely needed.
Before the Fantastic Four make their K-pop comeback next month with Duble Sidekick, they’re returning to Japan once again to flop on the Oricon chart for the seventh consecutive time with the Japanese version of their summer hit, “YooHoo.”
I don’t know anything about their pronunciation, but the song seems to have translated surprisingly well. And unlike cheap-dols T-ara, SECRET’s actually bothered to film a whole new music video instead of just dubbing the new audio over the original Korean clip.
The new video is set in some nice beachy hotel, and basically just consists of SECRET running around, acting cute, and showcasing the latest stunning advancements in plastic surgery. I don’t even recognize Zinger/Amazinger/Hana any more, but she looks so adorable now that I don’t even care. Yeah, so her nose might be getting a little Jackson-y, but whatever.
Also, Hyosung has her famous curves and ‘charms’ on display in some tight outfits, and she looks so good and perfect and cute and OMG I LOVE HER SO MUCH.
By the way, do any of you know just how big “YooHoo” was in Korea? I’ve noticed lately that some HATERS seem to think that SECRET are flops now, but “YooHoo” actually ranked No. 30 on the 2013 Gaon yearly chart, and was the sixth biggest female idol group single of the year. Also, “Good-night Kiss” is still in Melon’s top forty; it outsold singles from G.NA, Jiyeon, Hyomin, and NS Yoon G. The only female idol solos that did better was Ga-In with “Fxxk U” and IU. So yeah, SECRET are still superstars and they’re coming for wigs in August.
Meanwhile, back in Korea, Hyosung did this photoshoot. Your fave biker slut could NEVER.
