“…그래도 나는 바나나 사랑해.”

“Banana Allergy Monkey” by Oh My Girl Banhana | This was going to be one of those songs that Shalla and I disagree about. Okay, this one’s cute, and I definitely am in for the 8-bit aesthetic done well, but it’s also weird, seeing a (subunit of a) girl group that’s so far specialized in the dreamy and innocent suddenly go Orange Caramel-level kooky. Also, Binnie is too poised for this. Still, I like it. Shalla, on the other hand, hated it. And then, overnight, she had the song stuck in her head, and we were singing it on Animoji messages (we were testing out her new phone) because there is, conveniently, a monkey. Think about it. This is a song about a monkey who is allergic to bananas. This is a song professing love for banana milk, the one thing allowing the monkey to indulge in his forbidden love. In Seoul, Shalla and I lived on banana milk – and while Binggrae is available here, in Korean stores, it’s in tetra packs, and not those big plastic containers. It feels different. Also, thank heavens the monkey isn’t lactose intolerant. That wouldn’t be a fun song. Banana-na-na-na-nanananananana… [NB]
