It’s been a few weeks since Exo dropped their comeback single, “Wolf.” And while K-Pop listeners either really love the song or really hate the song, sometimes our opinions are smothered in bias. So I got two of my good friends to watch the “Wolf” MV and give their honest opinions about it. 24 year-old Louisiana native Matthew, who’s already done a “Popping Cherries” with B.A.P’s “One Shot” and 28 year-old New Yorker Jen, who is totally new to the K-Pop world, join me in this howling edition of Popping Cherries.
Salima: This is Exo’s comeback after an entire year. Exo is a group from the biggest entertainment company in Korea and they had fans before they even debuted. They came out with 23 teaser videos. It’s 12 boys.
Jen: Are they hot?
Matthew: From what you’ve shown me about K-Pop, the guys usually look like girls.
Salima: *Ignores Matthew* After a year of their fans waiting for them to comeback, they came out with a song called “Wolf.” This is it.
Jen: So that’s a tree? It looks like a tree.
Salima: That’s a tree.
Jen: Woah. That was hot.
Matthew: Oh my goodness, that boy’s hair!
Jen: And his hair!
Matthew: This is interesting. The beat just switched up.
Jen & Matthew: *burst out laughing at howls*
Matthew: Are they seriously howling right now? Seriously?
Salima: Yes, dude.
Jen: Despite that… this beat is kind of awesome.
Salima: So these are the other 6 guys coming in. Earlier you only saw the first 6.
Matthew: Was that a wolf? That was so cool. It’s filmed very well and the special effects are on point.
Jen: Did he just say, “situation”? Because I think I understood that.
Salima: Haha yeah, he said “situation.”
Next: Kaleidoscopes, jazz hands, and Dragon Ball Z?
