Jang Geun-seok shows off his Toucholic rapping

Remember Jang Geun-seok‘s “music drama” “Yepptic & Haptic Love,” for which he sings (and raps) the theme song “Toucholic”? What is essentially a glorified music-video-slash-ad has been released — and, well, it’s pretty hilarious (unintentionally, sure, but still hilarious).

The story features a touch-phobic young man who comes into contact with a young woman and is, like, changed 4evah.

In my opinion, the song on its own (I heard it before seeing the video) kind of bites the big one. In conjunction with the video, however, it takes on a cheesetastic, campy appeal.

Wow, that is all kinds of awful.

I am curious as to why most Korean songs have English phrases or sentences as refrains. I am listening to the godawful Boys Before Flowers OST (I know, I need something to last me through to Monday), and all the songs have English phrases. Kind of jarring and strange.

After she touched his hand and ran out of the door, I expected to see him pull out a bottle of Purell, waterless hand cleanser. LOL!

Um, the cellphone looks awesome. It's sleek and cute, just like ipod nano. I actually want one. So I guess this means their marketing technique is working?

Anjali, I use the OST to get me through the rest of the week as well! Call me crazy but I'm beginning to love it; including the song by the monotone singer.

haha, this is freakin' hilarious. when i first saw this music video yesterday, i laughed out loud cause the music was so ridiculously bad. the music video helped a lot cause it made the song a little cute-sounding, but who burst out laughing once JGS started rapping?! i know i did. no offense to him, but maybe he should stick to acting. and what's with the ponytail?
the mp3 player looks pretty cool though.

@ 11. It ~is~ the guy from Baby and I... and Beethoven Virus... and other things XD

I dunno, no one seems to like it but in a guilty sort of way, it was cute to me. The campy music video was fun and the girl looked like a little baby when they were running XD

Thanks javabeans. This was fun!

I liked this guy since Hong Gil Dong but whats up with his picture? It looks like someone fiddled around on Photoshop and got carried away with his sideburns.

Ummmm....how did she end up with black earbuds when she walked into the store with white headphones? lol that really bugged me for some reason.
The rapping....err I don't know. I hope he doesn't make a career out of it haha
Whoever produced this song must've been heavily inspired by The-Dream cuz it sounds like most of his last album.

um.. so the girl reached out and touched his right hand right?
but then at 1:04, he was holding out his LEFT hand, as if that was the hand she touched :p
then at 1:07, goes back to his right hand.

a mistake gone noticed?

Is it just me, or does Jang Geun Seok's rapping sound awfully a lot like Ciara's "Oh" when Ludacris raps?
And it also kind of sounds like "nobody" by the Wondergirls...

There's just something about JGS's voice or the way he sings that attracts me @[email protected] lol. I mean, I can't say that Black Engine and now this Touch Holic are really good songs neither that he has a great voice, but still I'm pretty much addicted to these 2 songs. Love the way he says 'Touch Holic' and the rapping part, I thought it was someone else's rapping until I saw the video :)

This all sounds like clever promotion on Samsung's part. I don't think that this is going to be a TV show. They are just promoting the touchable Mp3s, Is it a phone as well? I can't read Korean.

I remember a few months back LG did something similar. They had Natasha Malthe play the title character as Scarlet in a publicity campaign, which promoted a new "TV series" (revealed on the show's "premiere date" as the name for a new line of television sets) for LG Electronics.

The song is good though. And his hair looks so much better a little long and NOT in a ponytail!

i think it's a nice bouncy song & he's got a good voice, it may not be as strong so to speak but it's good! is it just me or did anybody notice that Jang's nose (bridge part seems swollen). I wonder if he's got a nose job or something cause in Lovers in Prague it looked nicer! He's cute as a button and that's what counts! Congrats Jang!

"What the heck is happening to Jang Geun Suk’s sideburns?!?!
Who told him to grow them out?!?"
i so agree with this! he's so cute but the facial hair and long sideburns don't do it for me. it just seems peach fuzzy.
i like corny and cheesy things so i thought the whole concept of this cf minus the song was really cute.
esp when she came back to get her phone and she just held out her hand "give me nao"

If he actually had some problem like OCD, shouldn't he be constantly wearing gloves? I'm more interested to see how he ultimately opened that door.

And the rapping... it looked a bit weird. hahahha! But I still enjoyed it.
Commercials weren't meant to make sense anyway.
