Kazaky is a gender bending and very edgy boy band from Ukraine that has basically gone viral, even appearing in a Madonna music video at one point. Since Korean’s are so obsessed with improving things from other mainstream pop markets, if was only fitting that a Korean version would at some point come along and basically make the original irrelevant. Well, not this time. N.O.M. (which stands for Nature Of Man), have released their debut digital single A Guys along with a music video, and it’s the hottest of hot messes.
Kazaky are visual artists. Their music is pretty awful, but their videos are always top notch. Kazaky always have the budget to pull of really high fashion drama, and have the bodies to pull off the intense sexual vibe they are trying to get across. These boys have neither. The video itself looks like it came out of their own pockets, and the boys themselves are no where near as fit as Kazaky’s boys are. The fashion looks cheap and the dancing is no where near as complex as Kazaky’s. The only place N.O.M. excel is in the song. Sure, its not great, but it’s better than most of the recent Kazaky singles, (except for Touch Me perhaps).
All that bashing aside, I am so down for this group to bring me more second tenth-rate lessor knock off glory.
Now witness the originals:
