clara gwiyomi
Clara –actress, model, tabloid fixture, and professional scandal-maker– is still hell-bent on becoming the next Shim Mina with her own successful music career.

She already slayed the house music genre with “Invitation” before proving that a worse female rapper than Iggy Azalea exists with “Fear.” Now the unpredictable chanteuse has gone the cute route and blessed us with a much-needed remake of Hari’s ridiculous “Gwiyomi Song”.

For those of you that don’t know, ‘gwiyomi player’ is the name of an adorable series of hand gestures used to show aegyo (‘Cutie Player’ in English). It became a thing in South Korea in 2012, and then spread across Asia the following year when irrelevant singer Hari turned it into a children’s song that went viral and briefly made her popular enough to perform in Filipino shopping malls.

Now Queen Clara has brought her unique touch to the cutie classic, adding some drum beats and 8-bit effects to spice up the production, and giving it a music video that just screams “PLEASE GIVE ME A VIRAL HIT LIKE PSY.”

I mean, it has Stan Lee in it. STAN LEE. That’s almost as cool as Lovelyz referencing Dali in “Candy Jelly Love.”

“Gwiyomi Song 2” sees the 28-year-old singing like a five-year-old while looking like a cross between Katy Perry and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and that’s pretty damn fabulous in my books. Clara’s camp fashion recalls Uhm Jung Hwa circa “D.I.S.C.O.” or Seo In-Young during “Into The Rhythm,” and the song is the kind of dumb novelty trash that anybody with a sense of humour can have some fun with.

Also, the fact that Clara conveniently released this just a few days before Christmas when nobody has any new music out just so she can get on the Gaon top 100 for once fucking slays me.

ClarAllah is coming for that No. 87-for-one-week smash!

    Did Stan even know he was being filmed? I’m half convinced his cameos in the Marvel films have just been him stumbling onto set and no one having the heart to remove him!

    Clara gets major points for saying ‘fuck it’ and having fun. That said: if I never hear this song (or see any version of gwiyomi) again, my life will be better for it.

    • lmao, does Stan show up in the Marvel films? Maybe he just shows up in anything he gets offered then

      • KingBeaArthur

        He cameos in all of them!

        • Don’t they have like 10000 of those stupid movies? A mess! But I hope him cameo-ing in Gwiyomi is a sign that Clara has the next big female role in Catwoman Vs. Superman or whatever they’re called. I’m sure her many roles in low budget Korean sitcoms has prepared her thoroughly for Hollywood!

            That’s DC not Marvel, but I still love you :) And I don’t think Stan has any pull over casting LOL. His cameos basically amount to the closest thing we’ll get to a live action “Where’s Waldo” film (which at the rate Hollywood is shitting itself, is already scheduled to be released Xmas 2015 starring Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, or Adam Sandler – pick your poison)

  • not quite as out there as that damn chicken song. i expected better from my queen

    I hope this goes viral just so I can see the Knetz crying

    “[+11,007, -128] I hope foreigners don’t think this is how Korea is ㅠㅠ. Please foreigners this isn’t how Korea really is. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ”

    “[+9,056, -560] What is this trash doing?? Hul… This is so ridiculous ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ.”

    “[+3,560, -387] IF THIS BITCH COMES ANYWHERE NEAR MY OPPARS I WILL FUCKING MURDER HER!!!!!!!! DIE CLARA, YOU’RE SO USELESS WHAT ARE YOU EVEN GOOD FOR? TRY THAT GWIYOMI SHIT ON MY OPPAR AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS BITCH”

    “[+9, -10,000] I actually like the song. It’s cute and refreshing! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Do well, Clara!”
