Rachel’s Team Pick: Miss October’s Queer K-Pop

Heyyyyy remember when Miss October was steaming up your monitor? Turns out she is still awesome and sexy and making the world a better place in more ways than just her hot tattoos. She’s made a queer music video cover of a popular kpop song, Taeyang’s “Wedding Dress,” and it’s made it to the semifinals of Koream Magazine’s Krazy K-Pop contest in LA, and could be screened as part of a massive Asian-American Hollywood event, giving this supercute queer storyline a lot of visibility. But they need your votes to make it this far, so go ahead and vote for “Wedding Dress” over at their website! Seriously have you watched this, it is like if a puppy had a cute contest with a baby dolphin. LOOK AT THIS.

  1. Make sure you vote for “A Different Kind of “Wedding Dress” by TheElchang, not the Taeyang “Wedding Dress” Remake by kanauru. I mean, I’m sure kanauru does a great job as well. But that would kind of defeat the purpose.

    • Second this!!! Especially because Taeyang’s is winning so far, but TheElchang’s is a close second! Vote for number 3!

  2. I may or may not have watched this video three times. I wish I’d known sooner, since you can apparently vote every 12 hours!

  3. I am seriously impressed that two of my favourite things have been combined in song; lesbianism and K-drama angst. You can vote every 12 hours? Ok then!

  4. I think all K pop is just faggy. SHINee is pretty gay. Uhm Jung Hwa is a big fan of rainbow lights and pulsating disco music. 2PM LUV LUV LOVES excessive makeup, every one of their videos looks like a cover girl ad. All in all Kpop is pretty gay, that is probably why I like it so much. Though, this was an awesome video as well. If you like K pop but don’t know Korean, http://www.eatyourkimchi.com is an awesome place to learn about it from a western standpoint.

    • hmm.. i don’t know if it’s right to call it faggy. i think it’s just a style, a shiny style. SMAP isn’t very macho too, and they’re not korean. but i guess in the hierarchy of glittery and glossy pop groups, k pop would rank up top. then j pop, then canto pop, then taiwanese pop, then Cher.

      this is the very first korean music video i’ve sat through without wanting to fast forward. in fact i replayed it after voting. i don’t know much about k pop, but i can’t stand the music, it’s too computerized/ synthesized and the dance routines are too flashy. or maybe that’s just Rain and those 8 member boybands- i have friends who love those with a passion.

      when Miss October cried in 3:42 i felt very sad. could someone explain the lyrics of the video? i could only make out the words “wedding dress”.

      this reminded me of when Shane was a hairdresser to some wedding in The L Word. except she was able to get the bride. and bridesmaids.
