Cooking? Cooking!- Super Junior- H

This is the first time I’ve ever reviewed a Music Video by this sub-group of Super Junior. The H stands for “Happy”, and they are designated to sing upbeat and cute songs (or goofy). I’ll explain more about them later in an Artist Profile.

The song is about having a girlfriend who is the worst chef to stand on Earth. The members have tried everything, including starving themselves before a meal, to make her food taste good or to lie to her saying it is good, but they just can’t do it. The girlfriend vanishes and her friends say she is learning English, Chinese, and Japanese at school. The next time the girlfriend has them come eat they go prepared for death, but the food is the most amazing they have ever had. They learn she secretly attended cooking school for their sake. It is a very cute and silly song that will most likely leave you giggling or at least smiling.

The dance for this is really cute and bouncy. It fits the group image perfectly.

There is a strong story in this music video. It features SNSD member Sunny (in both the video and the song) as the girlfriend. Like Super Junior Happy’s other music video, Pajama Party, the video features mostly live shots of the members but there are also cute animated versions used in the song. The whole thing is like watching a cartoon with the little graphics and such that appear on the screen. It’s really cute and fits the song perfectly.

Other Interesting Things
This is seriously an adorable music video. I don’t know why Super Junior Happy hasn’t released anything new, but the members still sometimes perform the songs from this mini-album.

As I typed this I realized I HAVE reviewed a Super Junior Happy music video before- Victory Korea. However, that song was officially a Super Junior MV, it is just coincidence that it only features members of Super Junior Happy.

The beginning shots with the dumplings takes some explaining. It is a reference to the Korean movie “Oldboy”. The movie is about a man who was kidnapped one night and imprisoned for 15 years, with every meal being the same dumplings. I’ll review the movie later, but it is a very disturbing film and I can’t think for the life of me why they put this allusion to it in here, it makes the leader Leeteuk (the one eating) seem like a total perv. I won’t go into detail here, but I think you can almost compare it to putting an homage to “The Cell” in. It is definitely not a movie for kids. I kind of wish I hadn’t seen it…

Beware the “Super Junior Happy” effect. If you watch this music video with their “Pajama Party” one you WILL start to giggle. The MVs are related at all, and neither are particularly overly-silly on their own, but they are just cute and goofy enough that you won’t be able to help but laugh. This group REALLY lives up to their name!
