they are not referring to the actual tomboy style, is more about them being fierce and getting out of the hyper feminine and girly stereotype society expects women to accomplish, kind of like "if this is not how girls should be, then i guess you can call me a tomboy if you want"

saw a theory about that 'tomboy' is used to represent the breaking of gender stereotypes (perhaps this is what the "this is my attitude" and "it's neither man nor woman" lines mean) and i thought that was really interesting! and also the mv is so cool i loved it

It is! The G in Gidle stands for girl so that’s why the G in I Never Die posters is faded and sometimes not even there, and why there are missing posters for the G in the MV

I think it’s also a lesbian song since “I’m in love with a tomboy”, tomboys are usually females
joolteatea Anos atrás
Let’s get the cultural difference straight - As a FEMININE Asian I still have been called a tomboy for a number of small things from wearing oversized shirts to having any trace of a defiant attitude. It’s usually said as a backhanded insult like “you’re not being a proper lady”. So I love how this song is reclaiming that word and owning that attitude. Let’s try not to diminish feminist statements, even by accident, especially when Koreans are still living in a highly conservative and patriarchal society. They currently have to fight for basic women’s rights in their political environment.

i have to agree. however, in our country (philippines) tomboy means lesbian. in terms of culture, here in the Philippines we have this concept of "dalagang pilipina" - which means being modest, quiet and reserved. there's a huge pressure and expectation towards filipina women to act like this since it's traditional. so when their are women who act different they labeled right away as tomboy even they're not

I think your understanding on the word TOMBOY is only based on what you see and what you know in the western world. Mostly in Eastern and asian countries especially conservative countries uses the word TOMBOY as woman who breaks the gender role and perception of a woman according to that specific country/culture. A lot of "Tomboy" women can still look feminine but does not act accordingly to how their society perceives them. Just giving my 2 cents about your comment about tomboys and how they dress.

i liked everything you said about the video editing and production ❗️but for clarification when they refer to “tomboy” or say “yeah i’m a fucking tomboy” they don’t mean just the style of clothing. in other countries “tomboy” would be used to shame or refer to a way a certain person behaves that is “not lady-like” which is why they mention things like not fitting into standards for women, smoking, cussing, drinking and such❗️

honestly even if you look up an English definition of tomboy they will mention the behaviors and characteristics before necessarily presentation -_- i don't know why everyone is getting so caught up on the fashion which leans more in the pop punk which is also valid considering the music. there can be femme presenting tomboys imo

Don't look at this song in a western perspective. I-DLE is from a conservative country (Korea). You say 'tomboy' to a woman who doesn't necessarily appear nor act feminine. Soyeon composed this song to say that's it's neither a man nor a woman, just I-dle. They will love and embrace themselves for who they are and what they are capable to do, even if they're not conforming with what society tells them to do as girls/woman. (There are also few female producers in Korea, and I-DLE members are one of those, mainly Soyeon) That's why 'G' in (G)I-DLE is missing in all the visuals, mainly because of two reasons: 1) G stands for six (6), but now they're only five. 2) G stands for 'girl'. They don't want to box themselves, they want to break gender stereotypes.
Tomboy meaning here in the Philippines (Asian country) is the same with Western. So at first, I'm just confused with the song. 🤣

@KAEDEHARA KAZUHA I'm from ph but ik that tomboy is not just about the way a female should dress like a man? ig it's really a matter of perspective.
Misterye Anos atrás
@KAEDEHARA KAZUHA A lot of countries in the world defines it as a girl who's behaving like a boy/not feminine enough. But don't take it literally in a song. You need to look at the lyrics and visual. 'Neither man nor woman', meaning defying gender roles, gender expectations, and just being I-dle (themselves). 'Just me loving tomboy', meaning they are who they are, they will love themselves no matter if people wants to put them in a box.

@KAEDEHARA KAZUHA a fellow filo here but i get what their message at first watch. Being called a 'tomboy' here has always been a coincide of the way you dress and how you move or act (not being a proper lady) not solely on clothing. First hand experience here because i was called a 'tomboy' when i was a kid a few fimes for moving 'tough' and sometimes messy, playing outside with boys while dressing in t-shirt and 'tokong' shorts. The impression has been universal i think it just depends on your perspective.

The word Tomboy has very different connotation in most of the eastern countries. It's almost used synonymously to 'Rebellious Girl', someone who doesn't behave 'lady-like' etc. They went for THAT meaning of Tomboy, not the western one which pertains more to aesthetics. They challenge those stereotypes by claiming to be a Tomboy.

@Alejandra Obando he does not know best but he knows right just look at the dictionary. tomboy is an english word they cant change the word from a different language so they should create a new one in their own you cant just steal a word from a different culture and add your thoughts in its meaning lmao

@kimmy dude that’s how language works, you take words from other languages maybe modify them a bit but it’s not something they invented. I’m sure you use words like “micro” “minimum” “philosophy” “etc.” which are all words in english that are originally greek. Honestly you not understanding that a same word can have different connotations or multiple meanings depending on the culture is extremely ethnocentric of you

🌟FACTS🌟 1. The Director and Editor is a Woman! She was the one that edited INVU of Taeyeon. 2. "Tomboy" is the term they chosed to speak out about the prejudice for Girl groups not being "girly" enough, so they say "it's neither man or woman", I-dle is whatever they want (the group even promoted without the G that emphasize them being girls/women).
HakunaMatata Anos atrás
Hi, thank you for reacting (G)I-dle Tomboy MV! Glad that many people react to this MV. And I think through this MV you learn 2 things about *culture difference* between western and eastern cultures. 1. 3:25 It is 'I am fucking Tomboy'. Fucking is still considered as rude so they need to beep it in order to be media appropriate in South Korea and any other eastern countries. Fun fact: many beep on MV of eastern musics usually beeping for the word of 'fucking', so eastern audience know that without search it to the CD version. 2. 4:04 In eastern cultures, *Tomboy doesn't mean the appearance but mannerism.* Women and girls in eastern culture wearing feminine clothes are still considered as Tomboy because of their attitude, breaking the stereotype of being feminine attitude. Hopefully, this explanation widen you perspective. Many Thanks!😁

Tomboy is image made by society (specifically men) for women who don't have feminine vibe or opinion which is literally the stereotype I-DLE is trying to break through this MV. In the MV when Soyeon is in the kitchen and the line goes "I don't wanna play this ping pong I would rather film a TikTok" It's her going against the stereotype that women belong in the kitchen only. Those lyrics mean that she's an independent woman and can do whatever.

3:22 "tomboy" is not only a noun but an adjective too, so the line "yeah i'm f*cking tomboy" is as grammatically correct as "yeah i'm f*cking awesome"
rey Anos atrás
Eyyy :D I know it's very easy to gloss over the deeper message of the song because the Tomboy aesthetic is what most people relate it too but the message really goes deeper than just stylistic choices. The "This is my attitude." line is one of the main hooks and I also think it's one of the most telling statements on how becoming a "Tomboy" is not just applying boyish styles but rather, becoming free to express yourself the way you want to. At the first parts of the MV, the girls are always confined in 4 walls. Even if it's a hallway, Soyeon's asylum, Minnie's room, etc. until Miyeon sees through the keyhole Yuqi and Shuhua driving. I interpret this as them finally *seeing* things from the outside perspective. They just became introduced to the concept of controlling one's self (hence, Yuqi driving her own car). The dolls also represent the idea of the ideal feminine while Ken, contrary to popular belief, does not simply represent their significant other but also the concept of toxic masculinity / misogyny. At the start of the MV, the audience perspective is also in first person, we're the ones being loaded into a car, being pointed a gun towards, etc. Just like how the girls slowly escape the enclosure, literal boxes, we also go from being in the first person to third person. We finally see what's inside the trunk because we, ourselves, are also free. 6 balloons representing IDLE (yeah, let me dream) and then the rest representing Neverland! They've literally killed the preconceived notions of what any of us are supposed to act like and what society dictates how we should act. In the end, there's so many layers and connections sprinkled through the MV that even I'm still trying to find them all. And in this comment, I haven't even discussed everything solely because of the *sheer* amount of messages you can derive from the lyrics alone. It's really fun! And I can't really blame people for missing what the song really means because of the assumptions we make with the word "Tomboy", which only proves IDLE's point.
Axis Anos atrás
Despite the title being "Tomboy", the song is a commentary and criticizing the conventional, standards, and stereotypes present in our societies today. Like just like what Soyeon says, Tomboy is an attitude, we dont mf need to fit in to your expectation just so one could be called tomboy. Same goes to her line "Sometimes we swear without cigarettes" as there is this stigma, mainly in Korea that when a girl swears a lot, it more likely that they smoke cigarettes and drinks a lot, and vice versa. She basically means, I dont need cigarettes just for me to swear. I can be whoever I want to be, and still be able to swear. If only I could make a video of explaining this song to international listeners because most of y'all really dont get it at all. Even Jordan himself "makes a frown face" because he expected the girls to be wearing some stereotypical tomboy clothing, but no, we dont have to fit in to those stereotypes just to be validated with how we want to be.

I like your views on video editing but I feel kind of sad how you looked at the song, I'm not sure if you read the lyrics. In South Korea, women are expected to behave a certain way and this song was a way to empower women to stand up to how they want to see themselves as and not be dictated by social norms. There aren't a lot of female producers there in South Korea because of the gender bias that it is a man's job. She mentioned on her interview that she was told this when she wanted to start writing her own songs. I feel like this song really did a good job showing that.

"Tomboy" was written by Soyeon who also composed and arranged the song alongside Pop Time and Jenci. Musically, the song was described as a rock and pop punk song with lyrics about "independence and breaking the mold [of] being a 'perfect' girlfriend".

I think they meant "Yeah I'm a f*cking tomboy", because the next line is "Yeah I'll be the tomboy" I'm from Indonesia (a part of Southeast Asia) and I totally understand what they meant by 'tomboy'. I think in Asian culture, the term 'tomboy' is mostly used to describe a manly/boyish, fierce, strong woman. For example: "Yeah, she never wants to wear a skirt, she's very tomboy" "She's a tomboy, no wonder why boys don't want to date her" Or if you want to be more specific, 'tomboy' can also mean a woman that takes the man's part in a relationship (?), this is rarely used though but the meaning can also lean this way.

Great breakdown of the MV!! However, a lot of people like you are saying “The concept fails to grasp the meaning of tomboy. They are NOT tomboys, they are dressed too feminine!” People saying that is the exact reason why this song was written in the first place. The whole song is a paradox: it is meant to represent the way people put women into boxes for everything they do instead of letting them be. The irony of the word “tomboy” while wearing feminine clothing is the evidence, and also the sentence “do you want a blonde barbie doll?” while they themselves represent dolls with dark hair. In the video, Idle is choosing to be “dolls” on their OWN terms, to be “tomboys” on their OWN terms. It’s also a way to represent how idols (not only girls, although they are the most common target) are put into perfect boxes of behaviour and looks.

The word "TOMBOY" for others like fashion wear but in Phillipines, the word TOMBOY used to be called to the women who wears clothes, the style and act like a man. As a Asian Woman, sometime they scolded me to act like a lady but I can't. If they don't accept the attitude and respect of being tomboy, just let us be happy and be comfortable what attitude we showed to people.

agree. this happened to me too as a child and it left me questioning my own identity for YEARS, hating that part of myself that was not traditionally feminine because they always said it in a negative way towards me and because it wasn’t the “norm.” as a result i associated the term as something odd and not normal, even toeing the line of being misogynistic towards my own gender. when i grew up i kind of shunned that old thinking that was influenced by my elders and the people around me by changing my mindset into not giving a flying frick and i’m really happy that i am the way i am. i’m born like this, i’ll live my life like this, i’ll be this person. i would’ve been so miserable if i gave in to the naysayers, and i really love that a song about rejecting stigmatisation about what being a girl is and being yourself came out. props to gidle on this one (and it’s a banging song to boot!)

A lot of fans think that tomboy is a song made for their ex member soojin. Soojin was known for being a tomboy and also for loving dance and the members and soyeon says that in her rap. Soyeon also mentions smoking, drinking, sex and swearing in her rap which is a few of the things that soojin was falsely accused of and the members are seen with moles under their eyes which is one of the signature points of soojin's appearence. Not only that but the song was the one of the first released after she was kicked out and it is an angry song which makes sense as soojin was innocent.

Think of it this way, "yeah I'm f- tomboy" isn't grammatically correct if you don't really THINK about the song. It isn't just saying they are 'a' tomboy, they're saying they are 'THE' tomboy, representing the power and confidence they are implementing.

To be honest if this song had maybe been released any other time I would have probably thought it was a pretty standard song with a pretty conventional message for K-pop nowadays (even if it is a bit more radical in its depiction of it). However SK's has a very heated political climate right now especially in terms of gender politics, all culminating in the fact that the newly elected president is considered by many to be an anti-feminist who many believe used misogynistic comments to gain the sympathy of male voters, many of whom are frustrated at the ever-increasing competitiveness of the job market and have blamed it at some sort of reverse gender discrimination. Given all this, I feel like the fact that (G)I-DLE decided to release this song during a time like this when it contains somewhat radical (at least in South Korean standards) elements like the line "neither man nor woman" or a depiction of them kinda murdering a man lol says a lot about their artistry and boldness in my opinion, even if the delivery of the song is itself a bit messy and confusing at times. And, don't get me wrong, this is not really me trying to label this song as political but rather trying to give credit to (G)I-DLE where credit is due, especially to Soyeon whose artistic decisions I do not always like but have to give major props to for always being extremely confident and authentic with her projects.

Normally "Tomboy" it's in "old mind" for say a girl don't like "girly" things. So I think she plays with all girly things, she refuses to be.

Chilla Foxyy But it's Korea, you'd have to see how they use that word, if they use it at all. Anyway, it seems like it's just a way to symbolize criticism of idols. You have to know the context, they said earlier that the song is a kind of "response" to fans who just criticize the artists, there is a name for them but I don't remember it. Maybe knitz or sometime like this. (deepl translate)

Put the captions on or look at a lyric sheet for your next video! It will help a lot more things make sense. Yes they say "I'm fucking Tomboy." The grammar is off because they are using Korean grammar with English words. The translation would end up being, "I'm a fucking tomboy." The part you were confused about during the 2nd rap, Soyeon says: "I don't want to play this ping pong, I would rather film a tiktok.," and the end of that verse is, "I like to sex, I'm drinking whiskey I won't change it, what the hell!" But it's censored in this version as it is their public 'clean' release. It's the same reason 'fucking' is censored. They do the uncensored version at concerts depending on what the venue is and what channel is filming.

You can say it's like...non-binary thingy?! But I prefer to call it tomboy as well

Also another thing people have been saying (not sure if its true) but that the balloons flying out of the trunk at the end (8:58) were resembling the 6 members (G)-Idle used to have. Soojin was a member but then got kicked cause a bullying scandal went around. And u can see at the balloon scene that one of the balloons flew in a diff direction, representing Soojin. So sad :/ :C

In the middle school my girly friends called me tomboy only bc I spend a lot of time with boys (not hook up with them), we were playing soccer together and because I weren't too emotional they had a lot of respect to me Tomboy is a girl who has a lot of boyish behavior, some people don't accept girls/women who do typical men things

Saw a filo comment that the 'tomboy' sentiment is the same as western. I'm also a fellow filo but i get their message. Overtime the 'tomboy' impression changes from based solely on their clothing to attitude. (but i also think it collides to one another at some point). It's not solely based on the clothing but the attitude. You see a girl acting boyish here in ph wearing girls clothing locals will say "oh she's a tomboy". I think the song is about breaking stereotype and just embracing the fact someone's being called a tomboy for some reason and mocking that same 'someone'. Being brave and confident about who they are regardless of anything. This is a timely message for what happened in the elections of their country. (it's purely coincidental i believe yet this is timely accurate). I guess they used a ken doll to mock because most of the time men are using the term tomboy to describe a girl especially the heavy mysoginistic tendencies in their country. (G)I-dle did a concept and a song up for discussion and they did it fairly well. The songs and MV are superb!

Thanks for the concepts! they were useful for understanding a bit more about the technical part about the video itself. However, I think you misunderstand what the group tried to tell with the tomboy thing. There are two very important lines that gives the hint: “you get the song right? you'll get what i mean, tomboy” and "neither man or woman, just ()I-DLE". Basically what they are trying to say it's they want to do whatever they want without being considered "girly" or "tomboy", they just want to be themselves. I mean, they pretty much say it in their live.

I’m pretty sure Ken represents people that force gender stereotypes on them. “Loving tomboy” means the girls loving who they are and they’re comfortable being themselves, a mixture of feminine and masculine. And when they say they’re not a man or woman it refers to something Soyeon has said about being a female producer which is rare in Kpop and how she doesn’t want people to label Idle as women or a girl group because they are capable of doing the same things men do in the industry

The song is about being tough to stand up to prejudice and injustice in the world (their words). Their using tomboy as a synonym for tough. They don't have to change or sacrifice who they are to be tough. They can be tough and still be feminine. So they're saying I'm a @#$@$@ Tomboy. And it fits cuz the next time they say I'll be the tomboy. Also I've noticed they often leave out propositions probably due to language differences. And actually the cadence would fit a bit better if the "a" was included.

listen the idea of the song and mv is about how society expects and basically forces woman to be more "feminine" by policing them and giving them certain "rules" how to act and react. being a tomboy to idle in this song is more about the attitude than anything else, like society would call any woman who doesn't submit to men or put herself beneath them a "tomboy" no matter how sexuaIIy appealing she is just bc they believe being strong independent and fierce isn't a feminine thing so by saying they are tomboys meaning they're fierce and won't submit to what society expects from females to be like and they have no problem if people find that not feminine or call them tomboys I knew the concept of the mv was gonna fly over so many people's heads when I first watched it but I didn't expect u to be one of them LOL

First thing, if you are looking for grammatically correct, you are I. The wrong genre. And yes, it’s F-k. The CD version is not censored. Soyeon would love this analysis considering how detail-oriented she is regarding production.

Material gwurlllllll
I watched the mv at 6am on the school bus and literally the first thing to come to my head when I saw the transitions was "Jordan finna react to this isn't he" like I been staring at my phone waiting. I did notice the monster hint aswell, and the words "I don't wanna play this ping pong" was another reference to "Ping Pong" by HyunA and Dawn which I thought was cool. There are many other references as well.
liliya Anos atrás
The 'ping pong' was used in the context of 'useless quick talk between the two' and not referencing HyunA and Dawn.
Material gwurlllllll
@liliya I heard ping pong and thought of it as that way you didn't have to correct me on it

The lyrics itself explains what their referring too. Cultural difference by word 'Tomboy', I'm Asian... I'll got wear Oversized shirt, sits comfortably, walk comfortably, yet a lot of people are telling me to act feminine and said that I'm a Tomboy. I'll be outgoing, hanging out with my friends, One joke will make me a Tomboy in their eyes... Tomboy isn't always about acting masculine when ur a girl or dressing up like a Boy. The comments in here explained it well.

in the last part of the mv, i noticed something. it does look like there was an inspiration taken from Monster by Irene and Seulgi but the difference is that every time that it (Tomboy mv) flashed, their outfits changes (9:07 - 9:12). just a small detail i kinda observed :) also, i love your reactions to kpop mv's especially seeing every detail and finding out the meanings of the songs :D {p.s. sorry for my grammatical errors}

The rapper (the girl who made a Ken slushie) was the one who wrote the lyrics. Yeah they are not grammatically accurate in regards to English, and she is probably using tomboy in the Korean context (as in what Korean perceive as a tomboy), but that's her point of view. And I respect that.

I love your explanation on the transitions. But in reference to being a "tomboy" the term has changed throughout the times. From a woman speaking bold being considered "tomboyish" to dressing more masculine. I believe the term changes constantly and this is their take on it. Just my 2 cent.
