For this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week we’ve chosen “Stupid Love” (착해 빠졌어) by Soyou x Mad Clown (소유 x 매드클라운). Strangely we’ve chosen a song which currently doesn’t have an official video, however it’s been so popular and we just couldn’t wait a week. Here are our reasons for choosing “Stupid Love” for our KPOP song of the week:
- Firstly the song blends rap and harmony fantastically.
- Secondly the Soyou and Mad Clown both give fantastic performance bring real feeling to the lyrics.
- Finally there isn’t really any English in the song which in our opinion makes it seem more real and heartfelt.
- On the negative side; no official video yet.
