Short OMO: Wild and Young (and Free?!) – [Kang Seung Yoon’s Wild and Young MV Reaction]

‘cause I think that this deserves an OMO.

You just don’t know how happy I am to discover this MV! I know that SM is talking seriously about overlapping everything right now (but that’s a different story) but this is hijacking my summer playlist. This is just one of those songs that make you want to go back to that good pop rock-laid back music. Seriously, this is so unexpected from YG. (I expect them to be mixing genres and it does not include rock, even pop rock for that matter.)

Well, for starters: Who is Kang Seung Yoon?


Kang Seung Yoon is a contestant for Superstar K2 where he placed fourth and he signed a contract under YG Entertainment.

(…and back to the review)

You think that YG is so good at using their white box set right?! Well, yes they are good at it and they did use it again for this particular MV BUT for this one I am so glad they’re filming it on a real soil, on a real park (or camping area?), on a real road, a real jeep, a real mountainous place and I am so glad to see real wind turbines on real grass-y place, a real pool, a real beach! Yey! Every single thing is real! OH MY GOD, right?! KPop is taking things on a new level when it comes to MV sets! I am so happy!

This is a scenic MV.

I like how they portray young teenage people having fun in this video. Summer is all about your friends and going out and enjoying the sun and it’s all in this music video. I love it! Especially the couch scene and the running on the grass scene, that’s very typical teenage thing. One thing though; why is there a graffiti wall on top of a mountain?!

To make up for it this song is fresh and, let’s be honest about it, not all of KPop sounds like this (or may pass singing a pop-rock song). This is a break from all those Trying to be Hip Hop, Hip Hop, Rap, Trying to be Rap, Electronic and all that’s in between that we all call KPop.  This is a very summer-y song with free spirits scattered all over it. The lyrics fit just anybody having fun in their teenage years (and for all those who are way beyond teens…) and it makes you reminisce just being carefree.


I honestly love this song and I’m crazy for the MV. Seriously.
