Hot Like Fire




I might be a pretty good liar, but I ain’t any good at all at pretending. I cannot pretend very well, but yes, I can lie and damn I’m good at it. People around me used to say that I’m a nice girl; that I have an innocent face that is pure and flawless. Little did they know that I’m much more complicated than just a nice girl with an innocent face. People around me used to think that I’m having a good girl faith. Little did they know that I’m just a charming devil. It’s more than meets the eye. The thing is, I’m bad at pretending. When I don’t like something, my face shows it all. When I hate something, my whole body just says it all. My mouth might be lying, but my expression just fails to cooperate. Spend a minute with me and you might fall into the innocent girl trap. Spend a month with me and you would find out that this girl is so much different than you used to know a month ago. People who don’t really know me used to say that I’m a warm person. Little did they know that I’m hot like fire.

“Think twice, because I cannot pretend to be nice like everyone else. Don’t misunderstand; my easy smiles are only for myself. You still don’t really know, but if you really want, test me, it’s obvious like looking at fire. But if you want something easy, oh wait till I do what I do.” –BLACKPINK, Ddu-Du Ddu-Du (뚜두뚜두)

These days I’m hooked by this one comeback song performed by one of my most favorite Kpop girl groups, BLACKPINK. It’s titled “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du (뚜두뚜두)”. It was released on June 15th 2018 as the lead single taken from the group’s debut extended play, “Square Up”. The fierce hip-hop track was written by Teddy Park, with music composed and arranged by Teddy along with 24, R.Tee, and Bekuh Boom. An official accompany music video, directed by Teddy and Gigant, was premiered on Mnet on June 14th 2018. Lyrically, it speaks up about the charisma of a girl who’s effortlessly seductive, as she openly dares the men who want to be with her for trying their best by putting a warning toward them.

Some girls are just like that; like me who has a good face but with a surprising attitude. Don’t blame me for being born with this innocent face, but yes, I do swear with my own mouth. Some girls are just like that; like me whose shrunken volume doubled in size. Don’t blame me for having this small body, but yes, I do speak out loud and my voice is hoarse whenever I’m savage. “My face is kind but not my attitude; thin body frames with hidden volume twice as much. We go forward without holding back, no need to be cautious, black to the pink, we’re pretty savages. If I want it, I’ll take it from you straight up, even if you want something, it’s like cutting water with a sword, my two hands are full of fat check, if you’re curious, do a fact check. My standards are way up top, like a fish in the water, I’m kind of intense, I’m toxic, you fall for me, I’m foxy.” I might be innocent but I’m straightforward most of the times. I might be kind but I’m intoxicating. You just don’t know it yet.
Some girls are just like that; like me who seems to be kind and generous but actually is manipulative in many ways. Don’t blame me for being so charming, but yes, if you’re messing up with me then you will be sorry for your whole life. Some girls are just like that; like me who seems to be restraint and calm but actually is avengeful in many ways. Don’t blame me for being so clever, but yes, I know my cards all too well, as well as play them. “The path I’m walking on right now is a BLACKPINK four way intersection. East, west, north, south, all around, we run it, all of your bucket lists, I bought it. When I pull you, I do it from far away, when I push you away, I do it legit like a bad girl. Whether you like it or not, no matter what anyone says, when the bass drop it’s another banger.” When I don’t feel like it then I would throw it all away. When I want it then I would not let it go easily. And the most dangerous thing is that: I don’t really care about what people say.
Some girls are just like that; like me who can’t pretend but is a great liar. Don’t blame me for having this amazing smile, but yes, I can kill you softly with this smile. “Think twice, because I cannot pretend to be nice like everyone else. Don’t misunderstand; my easy smiles are only for myself. You still don’t really know, but if you really want, test me, it’s obvious like looking at fire. But if you want something easy, oh wait till I do what I do, hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du.” So I warn you that you better think twice if you want to be together with a girl like me; for I’m hard to handle. And I warn you that if you want something easy then you better walk out now; for I’m difficult. You can try though. You haven’t known it yet. But yes, you can try. But I’ve warned you. It’s hot like fire. And it’s going to burn you. “What you gonna do when I come through with that on? It’s hot like fire.” If you think that you are ready to get hit, then you can try. But don’t be sorry when you get burnt.

Some girls, like me, are a good liar; so don’t get fooled by their innocent face. Behind that innocent face, she hides a dark mind that will only break your heart. Some girls, like me, are a natural born liar; so don’t get fooled by their kind attitude. Behind that kind attitude, she hides an ugly personality that will only tear you apart. Some girls, like me, are a clever liar; so don’t get fooled by their nice smile. Behind that nice smile, she hides a savage soul that will only bring you down. However, that kind of girls, like me, is bad at pretending. When she hates you she will throw you away in a trash. But when she loves you, she will put out her claws and cling onto you till the end of time. That kind of girls, when she loves you, she loves you hard. That kind of girls, when she loves you, she goes all in and gives all of her. That kind of girls, when she loves you, she would even suck her own blood out till she dies. Until one day you would understand; she was beautiful, difficult, and everything that you ever wanted. She was the one who burns you hot like fire.

“What you gonna do when I come through with that on? It’s hot like fire.” –BLACKPINK, Ddu-Du Ddu-Du (뚜두뚜두)
