Kpop Music Video: Day 19
Bounce by JJ Project under JYP Entertainment
Sometimes I like my Kpop songs to shake it up and be a bit different. I think that’s why I replayed Girl’s Generation’s “I Got a Boy” all during the month of January. Even though it’s not my favorite song, it was something new and different. JJ Project’s song “Bounce” isn’t new and different so much as the song has rap verses with a pop and pop-rock style chorus. It fulfills all these genres and the song flows well from section to section (unlike “I Got a Boy”, which needs lyrical segues to get from one point of view to the next).
JJ project is a two person group which debuted last year. Both members of the group JB and Jr. were cast in the TV drama “Dream High 2”, which is a “Glee” style drama, where all the cast members want to be Kpop idols. Their single “Bounce” is the only single the duo has released, and it was meant to be promotional for the show, however the song did much better than anticipated, reaching 1 million views on Youtube on the second day of release. They then opened for Wonder Girls in their Asia tour.
I’m personally looking forward to a new release by this duo. I like when solo artists or groups with fewer members release songs because then each person gets more screen time and lines. I like the amount of English in this song, and I’m excited to hear how much they can actually say, since singing along to kpop songs is awesome and only impeded with my inability to learn other languages.
Anyway, not a whole ton to talk about, it’s just a feel good song. Have fun and bounce!
