Just when I thought frilly fairy tales were dying down in pop culture, Orange Caramel decides to frolic their way into Kpop with some of the most annoying music I’ve heard all year. I admit, I cut them lots of slack with “Magic Girl” for tapping into a style that was non-existent in Korean pop music this year, but now that they’re back with a song IDENTICAL to their previous single, I’m contemplating taking back all of that slack and instead hang myself before I have to endure a second more of “Aing“.
Sub-unit Orange Caramel is taking one of After School‘s talented members Raina and making a complete mockery out of her by placing her with two bimbos and forcing a ridiculous concept down her throat.
“Aing” is a dated song that does zero justice to the ladies and goes as far as making them sound excruciatingly annoying. “Magic Girl” had already done so, a round of seconds is definitely pushing it.
It’s a case of ‘IU and the Big Marshmallow‘. What Pledis should have done is debuted the second sub-unit of After School OR, even better, allowed leader Gahee to unleash some pwnage on Kpop because we all know she will…eventually.
Until then, you guys enjoy the MV to “Aing” – at least it does a good job of matching the ghastly concept of the group to a visual world of Crazy.
