BoA: Eat You Up MV U.S. October 22, 2008

Has anyone seen the U.S. version of BoA’s Eat You Up single, yet?  I mean, when I saw it, I was totally blown away.

The dancing, the emotion, the scenery, the outfits, the settings.  What more could you expect for the Best of Asia?  You could tell just how much time and effort was put into this production.  It was remarkably awesome.  And inspiring.  The entire concept was out of this world.

Can anyone sense the extreme sarcasm?  Don’t get me wrong, it really was remarkably awesome.  And its true you can see the amount of time and effort, as well as skill, put into it.

Its remarkable in the amount of suckage that ran through the entire MV.  Its awesome that such an awful vid even saw the light of day, even more so that its going to be released to the American audience to promote the Best of Asia.  Is this for real?  This is BoA’s American debut.  Who hired the director?  Wasn’t LSM there through the whole planning and filming?  He ok’d this debacle?

This is what the American audience will see, and the reaction?  If I saw this and never knew BoA, I would be insulted beyond belief.  This is the Best of Asia?  This is all a highly paid production team and film crew could come up with to promote the Best of Asia?

Concept?  Was there a concept to this MV?  What was it?  BoA and dancing, I get.  BoA, two backdancers who look awkward in their tight clothing with taller and longer limbs contrasting with BoA’s shorter, baggier clothing; dancing in a windy, greyscale desert with a random moon?  I don’t get.

The vid was a mesh of random clips glued together in the hopes of … what?

Not only that, it only showed a fraction of BoA’s skills.  The camera angle almost never changed.  It was always filming at pretty much dead center.  You never saw her back or sides, you only saw her front.  That did not do her justice.

Can BoA redeem herself?  I doubt it.  The American audience is not going to think about even going on youtube to search BoA’s mv and happen to see the Asian version.  No, they’ll see the U.S. version, think it sucks, and think all Asians can’t make it in the U.S. because of this kind of shit production.
