10 Out of 10- 2PM

I don’t like this song as much as I like 2PM’s others. It doesn’t have as much emotion and energy to it as their later work.

The lyrics are very shallow. The song is about seeing a beautiful girl and the members are yelling different physical features of the girl and giving her 10 points out of 10. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the whole rating system 10=sexy and 1= totally ugly.
Her lips are delicious, lips are delicious/ 10 points out of 10 points/ her legs are so cool, legs are so cool/ 10 points out of 10 points/ her flowing hair, flowing hair/ 10 points out of 10 points/ from her head to her toes/ 10 points out of 10 points

The style here is for the most part inspired by hip hop and b-boy dances, which reflects the members specialties. The only part of the dance I’m not a fan of is the part where the huddle together and take tiny steps down the stage holding up 10 fingers. When taken with the rest of the dance it kind of looks half-done and doesn’t fit very well.

Story: 5/5
There is a story to the MV, though it is very quiet and fits into the background very well. The 2PM members are workers at some kind of luxury hotel or sauna. They see a beautiful girl come in and are totally enchanted. They start to have fantasies of her, only to snap back to reality and realize they are doing odd things. For example: one member has a fantasy of licking frosting or something from the girls finger and opens his eyes to realize he is sucking on his friends finger who is creeped out to say the least. Another member fantasizes about bringing towels to her room and seeing her showering, then her pushing him onto the bed. He opens his eyes to realize he is sitting in a corner by himself hugging himself and making kiss faces. The members fantasies are crushed, however, when the girls boyfriend (or husband) comes in. They are standing together depressed when another hot girl comes down the stairs past them, they follow her shouting “10 Points out of 10!” It’s a very funny story and helped to establish the members personalities.

Other Interesting Things
This song was very popular when it came out, but I personally don’t like the lyrics very much. They are too repetitive. I like the dance and I like the video part of the MV, it’s just the lyrics I’m not particularly sold on.

Since JYP Entertainment subbed the video themselves (extremely rare for a company, but JYP groups are breaking into the english market so there you go) I won’t be putting a separate video with hard subs (not captions on YouTube). If you want a version with hard subs then you just need to do a search for “2PM 10 out of 10 eng sub”.
