First she conquered the world of hip-hop. Now, Clara Lee is preparing to dominate the aegyo-fueled meme song that is “Gwiyomi” with her own remake of the song, creatively entitled “Gwiyomi 2”.
The song will be produced by the original producer of “Gwiyomi,” Dandi, who apparently was painstakingly thinking about the ideal person to embody the oh-so-preciously-cute remake of “Gwiyomi” and came to the conclusion that the answer was Clara Lee.
Dandi revealed that when planning for the remake of the song, he thought of collaborating with actress Clara for the project because of her energetic personality and bright aura.
On the one hand, it’s hard to see how one could look at the Gwiyomi song in all of it’s… majesty and think, “You know what would improve this? Clara.” On the other hand, the song really took off as an internet hit after it was popularized by Ilhoon of BtoB and if there’s one person who has mastered the internet it’s Clara. So as a pure internet attention grab, this is a good partnership.
There were also some teaser images released for the upcoming viral hit of the winter. Here they are, presented without comment*.
*Ok, one comment. Katy Perry called and she would like her everything back.
The song will be released on December 22nd, just in time for the holidays. I will probably be spending my time off perfecting my “Gwiyomi” skills in time for a Christmas party or two.
