The song

The first time I heard this song, I hated it. Then I listened to it again whilst playing it for a friend, and I fell in love with it.

It’s a catchy little ditty about dieting (of all things!) The tempo is nice and fast so it’s easy to dance around the room to.

The rapping  is top notch, although possibly a bit wasted in this perky little number!

It is missing the massive vocal runs Kpop has been over-using recently, so if that’s your bag… give this a skip. Otherwise, well worth listening to – you WILL be singing along!

The video

The video is O.K. It’s bright and fun and matches the song well, however there isn’t an awful lot to it. The small amount of dancing is interesting and fun, not technically complex but again it matches the song well.

One thing that did rub me the wrong way a bit was how many different costumes the girls were in for a very simple video. A very simple video does not need three unrelated scenes to chop between!
