KAT-TUN only loves themselves

The PV’s full version to KAT-TUN’s new single, Love yourself – Kimi ga Kirai na Kimi ga Suki, has been released. After the short version has been floating around for a week.

I gotta say I’m really disappointed by the PV. There’s pretty much nothing going on in it. Which I’m surprised by. Usually KAT-TUN’s videos have a higher budget. I know they had to split the budget for two PVs, but they did the same thing for One Drop and Rescue. And they still had a higher budget. For pretty much the whole video KAT-TUN members are gathered around a mysterious heart shaped rock that sprouted out from the middle of the road. And it makes no sense at all. I know the song is called Love Yourself, but is it really necessary to have a giant heart? I mean One Drop was about crying, and not one tear was shed.
And for some reason each KAT-TUN member has a different colored aura when they walk passed the heart. Which also makes no sense. Perhaps its their group colors. Does KAT-TUN even have group colors? I know NEWS does, but I have no idea about KAT-TUN.
The worst parts of this entire PV are Jin’s parts. I love Jin, don’t get me wrong, but he just ruins everything completely. Ever chance he gets he does his wanna be gangster poses, which are hilarious on their own. But his “It’s love, your love” parts with his gigantic flashing arcoss the screen, are pretty much stupid. But I mostly hate them because you can see Jin close up and see how scruffy he looks. Who told Jin a ponytail and aviator sunglasses is a good look for him? Because it’s not, I really wish he would stop dressing like that. And worse then that it looks like he’s not shaving anymore. Jin with a mustache would be the ugliest thing ever.
The video isn’t all bad. Koki manages to make it watch able with his overall hotness. It’s just sad that Koki decided to get rid of his black hair for some brown mess.

Too bad Haiti didn’t get such a loving earthquake.

Kame looks ok. He’d look better if his long hair didn’t make him look so womanly. I love his jacket though.

I know Ueda is girly, but do they have to dress him in women’s clothes? My sister wears those sweater jackets.

Koki still manages to look good. Taguchi however, not so much.

Jin’s so cool, he’s the only one who doesn’t have to wear red

I love Maru’s pants. XD

Jin really needs to shave.

Am I the only who notices Jin has to do something with his tongue or mouth in every video?




a lot.

I don’t even like Taguchi and I have to admit this was kinda cute

It’s disappointing how Jin has never looked uglier

I don’t get it. I’ve never been so sad that I rubbed my face.

Kame-sama, Kami-sama. Close enough.

KAT-TUN- Love Yourself preview

KAT-TUN’s new single, and their first single of 2010, is entitled Love yourself – Kimi ga Kirai na Kimi ga Suki. It’s also going to be the theme for Kame’s new drama Yamato Nadeshiko Shinchi Henge. And today we have a preview for Love Yourself. But oddly enough we had a short preview for the b-side, D-Motion, almost a month ago. Although technically the concert rip to Love Yourself has been floating around for a while. But the quality was terrible and I couldn’t really get a feel for the song. So the preview is new for me, and probably a lot of people out there.

At first listen I absolutely love the song. I was expecting this is be a sad song since it’s translated to something like I hate you and I love you. (Don’t quote me on the translation cause my Japanese sucks.) I was also expecting to not like the song at all, because I’m not the biggest KAT-TUN fan out there. I only like a handful of songs by them. But the music to it is really great. It has a great club sounding beat. It sounds a lot like something that would be played in America. That’s probably a main reason I fine the song so appealing. It’s nice to see that auto tuning has not only invaded Korea, but Japan too. That would probably annoy most people, but I’ve always loved auto tuning. I would honestly prefer if the song had a bit more of it. The only thing that disappoints me is that Koki’s rap seems rather short. But I guess I’ll have to wait for the PV to see it’s longer. Since Koki’s rapping is usually my favorite part of KAT-TUN’s songs. The song also sounds like something Arashi would sing rather than KAT-TUN.

And to anyone out there who hasn’t heard the D-Motion preview, here’s KAT-TUN’s DecoTomo DX commercial.
