Giriboy – Back and Forth 30 Min (왕복 30분) Feat. Shin Jisu

 

Wow. I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I do. I haven’t had the chance to listen to all of Giriboy’s new album yet but this song is already one of my favorites. The lyrics definitely sound as if Giriboy is speaking from a personal experience with a woman who was always just out of reach. The music video is chock full of all kinds of visual metaphors and was fun to watch. The mood of this song is much different from ‘Take Care of You‘ (Giriboy’s glasses are back). Giriboy has an awkward steez I appreciate. Some people in the comments say his style and voice remind them a little of GD which I hadn’t thought of before. He does kind of give off a Kwon Jiyong-vibe. I think its because Giriboy is so unique as an artist and doesn’t seem to fit into any typical Korean rapper mold (if such a thing exists anyway).

I am a huge fan of Shin Jisu’s vocals towards the last bit of the song. This is my first time hearing from her, but after doing some research I saw that she appeared on Super Star 3.

I was admittedly confused at the end of this video. I was following the story line but then what exactly happened? Tell me what you think in the comments!

  1. This was such a cute song and MV! Giriboy really has an awkward/cheeky/a little bit sleazy kind of charm lol. Great album too. I think at the end it’s saying that they broke up (he could never catch up with her).
