It’s a sex arms race and HyunA is winning with “Ice Cream”, you guys

If you haven’t already seen HyunA‘s already legendary MV for “Ice Cream“, do so.

Melting“, HyunA’s last hurrah before fall/winter season hits and the balladeers come out of their holes like a group of angry, disenfranchised vampires for their once-a-year shot at charting, couldn’t have been timed better. Sure, she was the latest to the show (in terms of release date), but the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. Psy, riding high on the tail end of the “Gangnam Style” craze, makes a brief but memorable cameo in the first few seconds of her MV, which guarantees her at least a few million views.

Oh, and she showed up all the others who’ve made comebacks. Ga-In‘s actual/simulated arthouse cinema love scene? Nah. SECRET‘s spread-leg, shove-my-crotch-at-the-cameraman dance? Puh-leeze. Nope, HyunA wins with her what-if-K-pop-and-Kreayshawn-had-a-baby-out-of-wedlock swag.

Oh, and can we talk about how HyunA literally (yes, literally) sprayed the male extras in her video with her … uh … “ice cream”?

Why MOGEF banned “Very Hot” but let this one fly under the radar is beyond me. It’s probably because they have standards, you guise.

  1. I actually thought this was pretty tame, well compared to what I was expecting. It was a lot of fun but I still don’t think it beat Ga In…

    • I liked it a lot. It wasn’t as tasteless as her stuff has been handled before, which is probably the best thing Cube could have done for an idol whose persona will forever be the uber-sexual girl. I loved the sets and the colors and the clothes.

      Also, I’m getting major Lee Hyori vibes.

  2. I think this video is entertaining as hell. It’s really funny (hilarious English signs FTW) and feels a little bit tongue-in-cheek which kind of helps mitigate the ejaculation metaphors. Cream cream cream cream!
