Review: 2009 SBS Gayo Daejun – The Ladies

2009 has really been a great year for K-Pop Idol lovers (me being extremely happy), we got the emergence 2NE1, the powerful 2PM, the super sexy MBLAQ (minus Cheundong, he’s just too cute), T-ara, 4minute, BEAST, and…MANY MORE that I’m sure of lol.

Well, I’m not reviewing the whole show, that would take forever, I just want to point out my favorite performances and the ones I thought weren’t as up there. So let’s start:

The Ladies:

4minute – Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani, MUZIK, and Hot Issue (Remix): I really enjoyed this performance, I feel like the girls have really grown as performers and I adore Jiyoon <33. The dancing was hot and Hyuna isn’t as annoying as she used to be to me. Good.

CL – Heartbreaker by G-Dragon (my wish is for them to get married and have a super fierce babies and take over the K-Pop world): I wish I had better things to say about this performance because I LOVE CL she’s like the best thing to happen to K-Pop since…EVER. Maybe it was the high heels that wouldn’t let her own the stage as she usually does but her rapping was FIERCE. I like her version more than GDs hehe. But I felt that the performance was just lacking in the extra oomph that CL always carries around with her.

After School’s Park Gahee/Kahi & UEE, 4minute’s Hyuna, KARA’s Nicole & Seungyeon – Heartbeat by 2PM: I LOVED this performance, I didn’t like Gahee/Kahi or Hyuna’s rap very much but their zombie dance was AWESOME. UEE actually didn’t suck because the role called for emotionless singing and her dancing is good as well (except at 1:37 where she tripped). Nicole PWNED with her part, it was as if that part was meant to be hers. I really liked her messy hair and she was just meant to have that part goddammit I want a KARA version of Heartbeat now lol. I also really like Nicole’s voice here and her dancing is one of the best. Seungyeon also shone, she looked super pretty and zombie-like with her dance, she luckily was one of the only ones who sung their part right or else this performance would have gone way downhill. Aside from Gahee/Kahi (What the freak Gahee/Kahi you’re like up there in the awesomeness of K-Pop what happened??) and Hyuna’s weak rapping and singing, I was very happy with this performance.

2NE1 – Fire: There was nothing particularly special about this Fire performance, it’s like all the others, but I love watching CL take control of the stage and just totally work the presence that she has inherited from the Gods of performances lol. I love the schoolgirl outfits though, it totally worked for all the girls from Dara’s sweet and innocent look to Bom’s sexy bunny look.

SNSD’s Seohyun, Yoona, Yuri, Sooyoung, Hyoyeon &  f(x)’s Krystal and Amber – Sorry, Sorry by Super Junior: It was good, very well synchronized and just nice, I’ll watch anything if it involves Sooyoung, Hyoyeon and Yuri dancing, they’re always great.

SNSD – Tell Me Your Wish (Genie) (Remix): I don’t usually care much for remixes but I like this slowed down version of their hit, my only gripe is Taeyeon’s solo starting at 3:00 sounded…not as good as it usually is, which sucks because that’s my favorite part of the song! I love Hyoyeon’s new solo dance in the middle though and who else thinks Jessica was meant to be a blonde?? That part of the end lol, ‘Keep me up all night…dancing’ suree…

KARA – Honey: Why? Just why? This was embarassing for me to watch! How could Nicole go from super cool and sexy in Heartbeat to this?? Especially with that purple monstrosity on her hair. My poor girls. Sigh Seungyeon looked so good in Heartbeat as well and then they go and put her in a blue wig.
