[MV] Orange Caramel touches down in “Bangkok City”Posted: April 3, 2011
After School sub-unit, Orange Caramel, returns all too soon with their new single, “Bangkok City,” as a part of their project to try to capitalize on their cute with the rest of the Asian region. Unless Bangkok City is somehow known for young couples ditching their partners for new ones there, the lyrics don’t specifically appeal to Thailand. While the song is fluffy and fun, you could easily replace “Bangkok City” with any other city or location and it would still make perfect sense.
Also their new concept here is just further proof that not every Korean idol can pull off the blonde, especially a wig with that much frizzy volume. Nana, being the aspiring model she once was, looks effortless in any look you put her in, while Lizzy looks passable and Raina looks like the blonde just attached itself unwillingly onto her scalp.
Fellow After School member Jung-ah makes a very inconsequential (like the rest of the song!) cameo in the music video. *sigh* It really makes you yearn for After School’s comeback, especially when Orange Caramel keeps churning out “hits” like these.
Here’s their recent live comeback performance too~
