I can relate. I usually just check in on the channel Mainland China CPOP MV 2 once in a while to watch new (to me) SING videos. :lol:

Someone did make a thread on a kpop forum last December. It's the most information I've ever come across in one place in English, but even the OP says it isn't entirely up-to-date/accurate.

Not exactly sure where to put this. It's a Nogizaka46 clip so I'm going to spoiler it so as not to offend anyone's sensibilities. :whistling:

Spoiler: show


I actually have a question though. One of the girls in the video does a "Himetan Beam" which of course reminds me of Yaguchi's "Sexy Beam." But I wonder, where did this "beam" fascination originate? Was "Sexy Beam" the first, or did it start way before that? Anybody know?

Might as well stick a legit 6-sute video here too. If it sounds familiar it's because it was (over)used in an Apple commercial last year. It's still a good song though. It's a re-recording of an old 1960's Ray Davies by way of Dave Berry song. It has a strange effect on me, and I like it.




Hooverphonic also put out an excellent cover version as well. It has that neo-retro "spy" sound that was pretty popular 10-15 years ago.

Japanese Wiki for Koi no Dance Site references Tsunku saying in 2007 that "Sexy Beam" was taken from FUJIWARA's "Chiku Beam" gag. Evidently he would place his fingers in a V-shape around his nipple-region and say the catchphrase "Chiku Beam!" It would seem that this is in reference to a protruding type of locomotive headlamp. I watched nearly 9 minutes of back-to-back Fujiwara gags and didn't end up finding him doing it, so I give up. :lol: I assume he retired the gag before Koi no Dance Site came out, and TV clips so old are rare, especially when I don't really know what to search for. XD

BUT TO YOUR GENERAL QUESTION, I think "beam" type gags are common due to Gundam/Godzilla/tokusatsu type stuff. It's an easy/cheesy/fun-to-say way to make a joke.

This. I always thought it was a joke on Ultraman.

Ah, maybe? This list of his gags has it as "チクビーム" without the other words, but could be. If that's the case "Sexy Beam" really doesn't seem too derivative of it. :lol:

This song and entire album by Sana (鎖那) has been on my heavy rotation as of late. It's the kind of breezy jpop that was popular when I first got into it 20 years ago. The girl in the MV is not actually Sana, but a performer named Nene Totsuka from another group called tipToe.
