Amidst my Korea fever, I came across some 2010 World Cup promotions, featuring the biggest names in Korean entertainment. The ads, videos, songs, merchandise, energy, you name it, all symbolize the national pride and the talents the country has to offer.
Here’s a SPAO All Generation Ad featuring SM Town-Super Junior and SNSD Girls’ Generation. It’s the South Korea “Yes! I Red It” campaign for the 2010 World Cup. They look cool and cute in their “red fever.” I like seeing the sporty, cute look on the SNSD girls and the casual, yet tough-boy style the Super Junior boys take on.
This is my favorite song for the season. And yes, it’s Super Junior, again. Super Junior’s World Cup fighting song “Victory Korea.” Featuring Yesung, Sungmin, Leeteuk, Eunhyuk, and Shindong (in that order of appearance), the MV is AWESOME. I’ve watched it enough times to hear, even in silence, “Oh A O… O O A O~…. Victory, Victory, Victory, KOREA!” ringing in my ears. I love part 1:25, where they throw in their signature “Sorry Sorry” dance, with fellow netizens and followers joining in the celebration =D Gah, I love their energy and pride for the sport and their home country. I still find it a tad funny that I’m not Korean, but I have so much appreciation for the nation, more than America. Woot! Victory Suju!
Now, I’d like to treat myself to a flaming red T-shirt too!
I like this one a lot, where Super Junior rejoices ecstatically at South Korea’s win against Greece on June 12… Their excitement is caught from several different angles… On the second one, Ryeowook looks like he’s flying out of his seat. Weird~
We are One Happy Family… Fun advertisements featuring brand name entertainers in Korea… Big Bang (Taeyang in a fancy face mask, when it’s not peak flu season, is funny… new style for his comeback??), Super Junior (maybe not the whole 13 member gang, but it’s still SuJu), SNSD Girls’ Generation, Olympic medalist Kim Yoona, 2PM (I’m still working on experiencing their music), and more…
And for other fans of Rain, 4Minute, BEG, etc… here’s another South Korea World Cup song of celebration.
