So, I hadn’t really intended to address the matter but I’m receiving a lot of asks and pm’s about it + it’s in the press here so i might as well just get it out of the way real quickly. Two metastases (new tumors created by the main one) have been found in my dad’s liver and it’s shitty but that’s just the way it is. I’d rather not discuss it and while i really am super appreciative of all your support and kindness I would rather not receive asks or stuff about it. I’m finishing up final exams and shit and i just need to focus on the things that i actually have control over (like my grades). so thank you all and i hope this answered your questions.
KoKoBop is actually song from the 1950s by Little Anthony and The Imperials. The full song title is Shimmy Shimmy KoKoBop and it’s about a guy who meets a “native” girl and she teaches him a “native” dance called KoKoBop. Long story short, the guy is infatuated with this exotic woman and her dance.
Now, by “native” it’s really talking about a person who isn’t quite from a modern society but rather like an agricultural one. In other words, this person seems exotic because they’re nothing like a person in an urban city.
So, if EXO are really taking tribute to this song then the concept of this mv could be about a girl who is exotic in the sense that she’s not like a city girl but one from a foreign place. Foreign meaning she’s just something different and takes them out of their small world of urbanization. Hence why, in the teasers and logos we see a lot of foliage and colors because let’s be honest here. When you think of an exotic place outside from the city, what do you immediately think of? An island, jungle, or nature in general. So this song could be about a girl who’s a native to an unknown land and EXO are infatuated by her uniqueness and behaviors. Hell, who knows. She may even teach them to KoKoBop.
As for The War, right now I think it’s another track so…yeah.
Here it is, finally! I recently hit 500 followers on this blog, and I have a mini tradition of celebrating that number. So I drew a song comic centered around my muse, Soranort, and its reflected off most of my headcanons and portrayal for him. Don’t take the lyrics too literally its a metaphorlike spoons are not literally spoons, or knives… Thank you so much for 500 followers, enjoy! ♥
