Rookie girl group, GLAM, didn’t make much of a dent on the charts when they debuted in July, but they did garner a lot of attention for the pro-gay lyrics in their debut single, “Party (xxo).” With conservative K-pop watchdogs trying to ban everything from racy choreography to songs with lyrics about smoking cigarettes, it was a pretty bold move for GLAM to come right out the gate with a single celebrating same-sex relationships. Since “Party (xxo)” dropped, one of GLAM’s prettiest members, Trinity, sadly decided to leave the group. She cited “personal reasons,” but gossip-hungry netizens have speculated that she was actually a crazy saesang fan of Super Junior’s Leeteuk and quit the group because she couldn’t get close enough to her beloved oppa. Or something along those lines.
Anyway, now GLAM is back with a brand new single, “I Like That.” It’s an urban-electro stomper that prominently samples the old Korean hit, “Nunun Wheh (Why You),” by Chuli and Miae, which some of you may unfortunately remember from 1994′s 3 Ninjas Kick Back. The beginning of the first and second verse of “I Like That” also happens to sound suspiciously like f(x)’s “Electric Shock,” although we’re guessing that GLAM probably just ripped that one off without credit.
