HYUNA: Why "Too Sexy" Isn't a Problem

I recently wrote about how I'm a little disappointed in Cube Entertainment over Hyuna's new mini album teaser (and to be honest I still am) but now that her new MV is out I have a ton of things to say:
Let me start off by saying, I LOVE HYUNA.
While I'm not going to say she's a great singer or rapper, you have to admit that she's an incredible performer which at the end of her day is her JOB. She's magnetic, charming, and something about her work is so. damn. catchy.
That being said, you can take her singles a few different ways but people tend to either think that she's WAY too sexy or that she's awesome for celebrating female sexuality. So which one am I? Somewhere in the middle...
Sure, I have a few issues with her video but overall it seems pretty girl-power to me. There are no men in the video except for Ilhoon who raps about how Hyuna is a queen. She's not rapping about how all the guys want her, she's rapping about how she's the best over everyone - she's not here to impress or please anyone cause she's already at the top.
As for how sexy the video is, yeah the choreo is definitely 19+ but it's not too different from a lot of other groups out there - people just expect it more from Hyuna. But no matter how much hip action is going on at the end of the day Hyuna is saying "don't touch me, you can't touch me" and makes it clear that she is proud of herself, not trying to get guys to want to be with her.

Again, yes the choreo is a little racy but I'd like to introduce you to Infinite's Hoya:

Basically, I think that Hyuna's image is definitely over sexualized but she does it in a way that is empowering not belittling to women. She's celebrating the fact that she's sexy but also that she's a powerful and independent woman.

So she's promoting self-confidence, independence, sexual expression, and girl power?

Just a side note -

If you aren't already a fan, please follow her Instagram so you can see how much of a genuine, lovable goofball she is. Originally I didn't like her just because I formed my opinion of her out of what I saw on stage, but now I know a totally different side of her (granted, I still don't know her personally sooooo) and she's GREAT. She's constantly praising other artists and her backup dancers and she really just lives life to the fullest.


Check out the video below and let me know what you think :D

I first liked HyunA because of the Troublemaker concept with Hyunseung. I thought she was so sexy and cool and I was like wow I wanna have that confidence to do something that isn't fully accepted in society but just confidence in general. And so I followed her on instagram and as I watched videos of her and with other people I realized she wasn't this sexy beast like she's really cute and has a lot of goofiness and aegyo ibside of her!! Her Instagram posts are so different from the unfeeling serious sexy image she releases on stage. Yes she might not be the best singer or rapper out there but as @kpopandkimchi said her job is a performer and she performs her best in everything
Honestly, I cannot stand Hyuna's music. Yeah, a few songs I enjoy and have made choreography to just for the hell of it, but she's way too overrated in my opinion. Even so, I admire her bravery and while her sexiness isn't the kind of sexiness I find appealing, she's still cool in my book for being herself. I'm glad she's openly okay about her sexual prowess and isn't afraid to hide it just because of some sensitive conservatives who are stuck in the 15th century. Sexy isn't bad, it's beautiful and I think every woman should be able to express theirselves as a sexual human being however they please. You keep doing you, Female Monster. You're cool in my book ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ
I like HyunA personally because she expresses herself so we'll and owns what she does. I've gotten to know more about HyunA through interviews and her Instagram and I already know of her infectious and fun personality. I'm glad she owns her sexual appeal to others as well.
Yay to her for being awesome and promoting girl power!
i dont think she is TOO sexy or anything, just sexy and her songs and choreo are always really good, plus she always looks like she is having fun ( mv, live performances)

๋„ˆ๋Š” ๋„ˆ ๋‚˜๋Š” ๋‚˜ (No no no na no na) [Hyuna: Roll Deep]
Another one of my misconceptions: "no no no na no na". Okay: to be honest, I seriously thought that Hyuna was singing to me. Like, really. (Listen to Hyuna's whole Roll Deep/Because I Am the Best here!) When you sing it, it's kind of slurred, so I can sort of tell why I thought she was *singing* that. Here's the part that sounds like it. Doesn't it kinda sound like she's singing? Well: I was proved otherwise. I looked it up, and I came across the result: "๋„ˆ๋Š” ๋„ˆ ๋‚˜๋Š” ๋‚˜" (neoneun neo naneun na). Especially with these kinds of phrases, it's really hard to hear it right the first time. She's saying, "You are you, I am me". Let's go through this phrase one by one. ๋„ˆ๋Š”(neo-neun): You are ๋„ˆ (neo): You ๋‚˜๋Š” (na-neun); I am ๋‚˜ (na); I Or, something close to that (correct me if I'm wrong!) The difference between ๋„ˆ and ๋‚˜, is that ๋„ˆ hasใ…“(eo), and ๋‚˜ hasใ…(ah). Basically o and a. Agh! That's the only difference there! Confusing!!! But after I started listening to this song more, I realized that it's not too hard. It's just no nooh no na nooh na. ๊ดœ์ฐฎ์•„์š” (gwenchanayo; it's ok), I've got this. [The word I just used there (๊ดœ์ฐฎ์•„์š”) is probably used in every drama, I mean it. It's one of the first word (er, phrase) I discovered while watching K-Drama :)] //her winks are so adorable :3// ์•ˆ๋…• (anneyong)!
