1. EXID - Ah Yeah
The MV just looks like they're crawling around being sexy and trying to get the guy, right? Well, the lyrics are a lot deeper than just that!
Where do you live? Do you live alone?
EXID responds with "You softly smile and keep pestering me. Treating me like another girl. Man, don’t do that. I don’t wanna answer those kinds of questions, no way." Even the "Ah Yeah" of the chorus is a courteous Korean way of being dismissive to someone you don't want to answer. In short, the song is confronting unwanted, sleazy attention from men. Which is an important issue in itself, with Korean society's gender roles being a decade or so behind in the race for equality. (credit)
2. Teen Top - No Perfume on You
Sounds like a cute dancy love song right? Wrong.
The lyrics are actually telling their "noona" to stop wearing her sweet smelling perfume because their girlfriend will find out that they're seeing this beautiful noona.
When I’m with Noona, I feel like I’ve become a man Without even knowing I shrug my shoulders When I put my arms around your shoulders It feels like I have the whole world, but
Don’t use perfume My girlfriend might find out Don’t wear sparkly things Because it might get on my clothes Noona, you are you, but if you really like me-me Don’t say anything, just Do as I say, and do it right Don’t use perfume
3. Song Jieun - Don't Look At Me Like That
While this might look like a tortured soul singing about her pain, it goes a lot deeper than that!
Don’t look at me like that We’re just in love, that’s all Don’t hate on us, however you’re viewing us We’re just a little different Just leave us alone
Can’t we live in a world where time stands still? Why? Why not? We did nothing wrong Why? Why not? We’re so in love
Most people believe that this is a song supporting people of all sexualities from loving without being judged or hated. The lyrics are so powerful!
