Well, everyone – we are only one week away from Halloween, and I hope you all have your costumes ready…
I finalized my costume this weekend, so I can’t wait to wear it to work on Monday. Before I get to our final song on the countdown, can I just say how sucky it is to have Halloween on a Monday? This year isn’t the greatest when it comes to holiday placement, get it together 2016!
Anyway, I’m thrilled to announce that the top spot on my Halloween Kpop Countdown goes to VIXX with their song Voodoo Doll. Please note, this video is a little more graphic than the others on the countdown, so if you’re squeamish, know that I’ve warned you.
What I love about this video, is that the guys really went for it.
Rather than touching on a theme, VIXX are known as the “concept kings” in the industry; with each new album and song, there isn’t a shallow tie to any one concept, but a well thought out story that their project embodies.
I think that dedication and attention to detail is so important when it comes to standing out within the highly competitive Kpop community.
VIXX is a 6-member Kpop group that was started by Jellyfish Entertainment. All of the members participated in a survival reality show that ended with viewer votes determining their final lineup.
VIXX has a lot of other songs that I’ve enjoyed over the years, including Error, which has a very Sci-Fi feel – and I find that to be exceptionally unique in the industry.
The song itself is a little sweeter than I typically enjoy, but combined with the video, I think they deliver the intended message and feel better than I originally expected.
And I mean, do you see these clips? This is some Terminator shit!
I don’t know if any of you have read the latest news about VIXX, but they’re new comeback album is actually scheduled for release on Halloween of this year.
I’ve been following as they release teasers every week or so counting down to the day the album drops. One of the most exciting things they’ve released is the concept film for the album, which I’ve attached here in case you’re interested.
