Friday Fun: AKMU – “Re-Bye” and Detective Hong Gil Dong (aka Phantom Detective)

FF 05-13-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

If you read last week’s “Friday Fun” post and saw my AKMU‘s “How People Move” post, then you probably suspected this week’s selection. Heh…I am, if nothing else, quite predictable. 😉

Our quirky and dynamic sibling duo is back with their sophomore album, and “Re-Bye,” released simultaneously with “How People Move,” is another nod to previous works, this time alluding to the the classic whodunit mysteries of the 1940s.

You ready to see Lee Chan Hyuk and Lee Su Hyun transform themselves into perspicacious gumshoes who match their wits against a heartless villain in time to prevent a murder? 😉

I don’t really need to say anything more about their music and style of visual presentation, do I? 🙂

If you’re hankering for more, the video of their dance rehearsal is below:

You can see the video of their “How People Move” dance rehearsal in last week’s post (here). I went back and revised the post; I just couldn’t resist including the rehearsal video. And I must say that I LOVED the dance rehearsal video! 🙂

If this post inspires you to watch a whodunit movie this weekend, please let us know down in the comment section which one you end up seeing. I’d love to find out what movies you’re watching.

While I’m on the topic of whodunit movies, I hope you’ll indulge me as I share with you a possible movie selection: A recent whodunit movie, Detective Hong Gil Dong (aka Phantom Detective), starring Go Ara, Lee Je Hoon, Kim Sung Kyun, etc., has just opened in Korea and is slated for a US opening this upcoming week. The glimpses I’ve seen of the trailers are quite…intriguing for lack of a better word. 🙂

I know…this isn’t supposed to be a movie post, but I just can’t seem to help myself today; I blame my rough week and my need to de-stress by sharing K-fun with you! 🙂 Enjoy the two trailers–I was able to find clips with English subtitles!–and have another glorious weekend!

  1. Yes! AKMU again! I love the unique, mystery-like concept of the music video. They’re both just so much fun together!
