Friday Jukebox: 불금 Edition (Now with more white go-go boots!)
Yeah, yeah, I know: I already did one "gangnam style" video. Let me explain why I love this one.
When I was in the service I got some little glimpses of Asian troops and an even smaller look at their policemen. But from what little I could see the ROK coppers were some seriously badass motherfuckers. They had a reputation in the Eighties for laying whopping beatdowns on the kids that used to protest against the Chun Doo-hwan dictatorship.
They and their ROK Army pals just seemed very tough and humorless. And while I'm sure they were and are tough, almost everybody has a silly, funny side, and this little gangnam-style parody video catches the ROK coppers in a silly moment, and I get a hell of a chuckle out of that.
BTW: the Hangul phrase in the title comes from here, and is descriped as: "...short for 불타는 금요일 (bul-ta-neun geum-yo-eel), which translates as “burning Friday”. It roughly translates as TGIF, and also has the connotation, “let’s go out and drink!” Use it along with the phrase “끝까지 달리자” (ggeut-gga-jee dal-li-ja), “let’s run until the end”, if you’re having a hardcore party night at the end of the week."
And - since we were talking about women just now - THESE women look like they could lay a serious beatdown on the ROK cops.
Except, military fashion tip, gals; that color AKM machine-pistol just doesn't work with the white vinyl go-go boots. Doesn't. It's tryin', but the whole "Heavily Armed Carnaby Street" look just...it doesn't.
Trust me. You might give Siree and Talyssa a ring for, y'know, a little stylin' advice. The girls will set you straight. Or kick your ass; they're cute, but they're also diggers. Don't let the adorable-as-a-fluffy-kitten thing fool ya.
Hope you and your go-go boots are planning a hardcore party night tonight.
