KPop Saturdays: 2NE1’s “Hate You”

Since I am in Japan, which is arguably the King of Animation, I was reminded of this song, which happens to be one of my favorite:

This video is entirely animated by Korean artist Mari Kim and is one of 2NE1’s more controversial songs. People either love it or they don’t. I happen to like it a lot because the animation is great,1 and really brings out the personalities of each member. Plus, the song has a raw, emotional feel to it that makes it stand out from other KPop songs. I am kind of fascinated by how human experiences are expressed through music and this song is obviously about a painful breakup and the resulting bitterness.

1 I like how their personalities really come out in the animation too.
