Side Effects of Being an Orange Caramel Fan… (Life, the Universe, and Everything)
K-Pop Music Reviews: Orange Caramel – Magic Girl

I came across this blog and this post while searching around for what people were saying about “Bangkok City.” Suffice to say, it’s a personal blog and he might be surprised if he notices the trackback. But hey, it’s quite an interesting story…

Waiting for his class to begin, MountainMadman decided to load up Orange Caramel performing “Magic Girl.” And, well, he got caught. Luckily for him, it wasn’t one of the more outrageous performances of Orange Caramel.

Also, I’m not sure that playing Orange Caramel videos in public is somehow more embarrassing than playing the Black Eyed Peas…

MountainMadman also reviews the single. I almost forgot just how reviled Orange Caramel was when their concept photos and teasers were released. It’s all quite silly in retrospect. I like his point about why Orange Caramel was successful despite the original backlash: “they went all the way.” They performed a song with the sound and image that most people felt was suitable for another country and proved it can work in South Korea too.
