I've been listening non-stop to this song for the past two days.

If this "I'm a playa'" video is a prelude to what's to come from se7en, then soon we're going to be listening to him singing about getting high and bustin' a cap in someone's ass.

Good God. *shakes head*

@ Dora: So somehow if T.I or Lil' Wayne sing about those things it's okay but when Se7en does it ~ not so much?

I mean, there are actually those of us who grew up in another culture and subsequently and inadvertently assimilating. It's not my fault that I talk/act like a sista when that's all I've known my whole life.

It really is who I am.

Similarly, we always welcome Western artists using/mimicking Eastern elements and consider that as a compliment but when it's the other way around, Asians are just posers?!

Sad, sad...

I don't know where you're getting the idea that I made an implication that Seven or Asians for that matter are posers. I don't even know why you're talking about your life to me.

I never said Seven shouldn't blend in with the American environment, I simply pointed out that I don't want to see him sing about those controversial topics with the whole "playa" stuff. And NOT because I think it's "poser" thing to do, but because it's lame and he has an image to uphold. He is a role model in Korea.

From what I can see here, Se7en's video doesn't look half bad after all... Maybe this wouldn't turn out to be embarrassing and Se7en was just bidding his time to produce something better quality-wise... :-)

I love BoA's song 'I Did It For Love' but I think her new video is scary...

@ Dora:

1. Think Se7en's "All Night" + "Passion" MVs ~ he was a 'playa' in them way before "Girls", bumping and grinding up to girls.

2. I was not sharing my life, rather highlighting the fact that there are 'foreign natives' in all countries and often they are chastised for 'imitating' when in reality, that is the only culture they know.

3. Se7en obviously did not want to do the same things he did in Korea which is why he flew far, far away to be different. And when did 'playa' become "controversial"?

However, I do agree that he is a role model in Korea and respected YG sunbae. But he's put so much work and time to debut in U.S so let's just support him.

Taehanminguk Manseh!
