For this weeks KPOP Song of the Week we’ve chosen “Expectation” (기대해) by Girl’s Day (걸스데이). This song was officially released this past Wednesday the 13th of March (White Day) on YouTube and so far it has amassed around 200,000 views. Here are our reasons for choosing “Expectation” for our song of the week:

  • Firstly the song has a cool club / dance up beat style which is always enjoyable on a weekend.
  • Secondly the video matches the music style and song well, as although it’s on a set it’s has a cool club aesthetic.
  • Finally this song shows a nice development of Girl’s Day as a band moving forward from their move stereotypical KPOP roots.
  • On the negative side, the video is nice but it is a little bland and boring at times with little to make you think wow, it just doesn’t quiet pop.
  • Also, as mentioned in a number of other places already the Boob rubbing dance is pretty funny if strange.
