I’ve never written about Berry Good here before, but I was a fan of their debut single last year, “Love Letter,” a slick bubbly cover of the Click-B hit.
“Love Letter” must’ve been a ginormous flop, because now Berry Good are back with an almost entirely different lineup and a budget so low that the only MV that out-cheaps theirs is Hello Venus’ “Wiggle Wiggle.”
One of Berry Good’s new members is the younger sister of AOA’s Yuna, and just like Yuna, she looks like a Thai mail-order bride who’d love you long time before running off with the deed to your house and the keys to your car.
I mean that as a compliment, by the way.
The MV for their new single, “Because Of You,” looks like it was filmed by a high school student who had to make a music video for a class assignment, but the song is really lovely and refreshing if you focus on it without the visual distraction.
The whole thing actually looks and sounds like one of those random rookie girl group singles from 2011 when new groups were debuting every three hours, so of course I love it. It’s very Blady “Crazy Day” –the luxurious MV that was filmed on location in the Maldives in 3D by a top Hollywood director– with a splash of All About Girls’ Generation: Paradise in Phuket.
Even though I stan this bargain bin mess, how the hell could Yuna’s sister not get into a better girl group with her AOA connection? Maybe she’s just REALLY untalented (like Qri/Sandara Park level untalented) and couldn’t qualify for ANY group, but Yuna managed to get her added to Berry Good after personally meeting with the agency’s CEO for a ‘business lunch’ at 9pm on a Friday night?
Anyway, enjoy the sweet refreshing juices of Berry Good below ^_^
