SHINee’s Back…For this weeks KPOP Song of the Week we’ve chosen “Dream Girl” by SHINee (샤이니). This song was officially released on the 19th of February on YouTube and so far it has amassed more than 2.8million views. Here are our reasons for choosing “Dream Girl” for our song of the week:

  • Firstly the song is catchy and memorable, it’s the sort of track you can listen to a number of times a still enjoy. (Apart from singing alone whilst walking down the street.)
  • Secondly the video is although similar to many other SM entertainment videos in set design has this cool 80’s theme which is pretty retro.
  • Finally the song flows and the videos message matches well with the song.
  • On the negative side, There are these lines which appear on near either the bottom or the top. They look like the lines you’d see on a VHS tape or a buffering video, doesn’t really add to the video it’s just annoying and distracting.
