But then again, when isn't it a girl's day video without butts. Just clasp and shake. The rest of the dance was lovely and 50's inspired.

Someone with hair experience tell me why you need to curl the bangs with a different roller. And also, what are those barbell curlers?

I would also say something about the dresses being too short, but I think they have shorts attached and I also think they're adorable.

I think what gets me about all the body parts shots is that there's so many great ways to show off idols in a way that gives them a personality.

This one takes my breath away. I would say literally, but you would probably think I'm being facetious. Really, It makes me stop and manually breathe.

I do think they're getting better about showing personality. They interacted much more with the camera than normal.

It's probably because it's a summer song, but I would go so far as to say it is THE summer song. It reminded me of Sistar's "Loving U" and now it will probably be stuck in my head all week.

I liked “Come back home” more, but Happy has some really good shots, so I figured I’d capture that one too.

A lot of people were laughing about YG’s “CGI” mishap, because SM entertainment used a very similar excuse when delaying their video. SM said that their footage got corrupted. I can totally see how the CGI could put a dent into 2ne1’s comeback, since it was an integral part of the video. I am so impressed with the quality of this video especially since 2ne1 seemed to be under performing for several years. Please enjoy it.
