[Music Monday] EXO – Wolf

Because we all need a earworm to kickstart the week! Plus, Monday is the only day in the week that starts with M. I’ll try to post non-Kpop songs occasionally :P

I would introduce you to Growl because that song is easier to listen to and the beat is more mainstream but NAH!

Wolf (known as 늑대와 미녀) is the 2nd(?) official single from EXO. It is the song that really made me realised how different they are to SHINee and Super Junior. The dance is awesome! I can watch it over and over again without getting bored. The official MV is nothing fantastic though. Didn’t like the MV story too. But their live performances are a totally different story.

The song is about how a werewolf has fallen for a girl. His friends are telling him to just bite her but he didn’t want to. The dance kind of showed that. The emotions of the boys is just JJANG! Plus, the moves are so wolf-ish! Especially how they swap groups between the first and second group!

Without further ado, my current earworm.

Hmm. This is slightly different from the other Music Mondays. I can’t say which part of the lyrics I like most because I love the beat and the ‘experience’ of listening/watching. But I did learn some new Korean words from this song.

단순한 – Simple
늑대 – Wolf
정신 – consciousness

When EXO debuted, I couldn’t be bothered with them. They came out at a time when K-Pop groups are popping up almost everyday. Didn’t help that SM Entertainment took super many days to reveal all the members. I couldn’t shake off the similarity the group has with SHINee and Super Junior. But after watching them performed during SMTown SG, I started paying a bit more attention to them. Wolf was the first time I was able to see them as a new group and not as a shadow of SHINee and Super Junior. 

So yup! That’s it for Music Monday (: Till next week!
