f(x), “We also don’t understand what ‘NU ABO’ lyrics mean”

Hailed as Asia’s dance pop girlgroup, f(x) was recently back with their 1st minialbum and the title song ‘NU ABO’.

While the catchy number is well received by music fans, the f(x) girls confess that they do not know exactly what the lyrics to the song mean. The girls recently did an interview with 10Asia and revealed what they feel about the song.

10Asia: Many people wanted to ask this. How was it like when you first saw the lyrics to ‘NU ABO’? (Question by netizen ‘mooncatzz’)

  • Krystal: For me, I don’t understand it.
  • Sulli: I was like “What does ggoong-di-ggoong-di mean?”  (Laugh)

10Asia: So have you asked about the meaning of the lyrics?

  • Krystal: Actually, there is no such word as ‘mysteric’. There is ‘mystery’ but no such word as ‘mysteric’. And I was confused why we sang about ‘unnie (elder sister)’ when the song is about blood types.  (Laugh) But after we filmed the MV, we understood the lyrics better.
  • Luna: We thought amongst ourselves how the story and the interpretation to the lyrics should go.

Meanwhile, other interesting questions asked during the interview:

10Asia:  Did you girls come up with our own idea?  (Question by netizen ‘Park JooHyun nb**’)

  • Luna: Yes. When we were working on the choreography we thought about what actions should go with the lyrics and asked our choreography teacher for advices. Even Victoria has said this before, the idea of her high kick was her idea.

10Asia: What are the members’ blood types?

  • Luna: Amber unnie is type B. Victoria and Sulli are type O, Krystal is type A and I’m type AB. (Laugh)

10Asia: Victoria and Amber, how are you adapting to the Korean culture? You girls have improved a lot in terms of your Korean language proficiency.

  • Sulli: Now they are Koreans.
  • Luna: Now we can’t talk anymore, because they will understand.

10Asia: How is studying of Korean language? Did the members help out with that?

  • Victoria: When I’m speaking, I would ask the members if there is any words I don’t know. But when I’m alone, I like to watch drama, and when I’m watching I would go, “Oh? I may be able to use this phrase later” and I will follow along a few times.
  • Sulli: She has many post-its on her desk. Really.
  • Luna: In fact she watches more Korean dramas than we do.

10Asia: Sulli is close to KARA JiYoung right?

  • Sulli: We meet up often even if we don’t have the same schedule. At first we used the same waiting room. And we are both 94-er. That’s why we got close. And its like our minds think a like.

10Asia: Sulli grew a lot taller over the past 2 years.

  • Sulli: Yes, I’ve grown taller by 25 cm.

10Asia: Krystal lives in her own house, so which member does she want to be roommate with?  (Lee JiEun apfhd_***)

  • Krystal: Haha. Oh…
  • Amber: Stay in your own room
  • Krystal: Can’t I have a room to myself?
  • Amber: Sleep on the sofa.
  • Victoria: You can have the living room.
  • Sulli: Well done!
  • Amber: That…what..clothes…
  • The rest: Wardrobe!

10Asia: f(x) has really many female fans. What’s the reason to that? Is there anything different about having oppa and unnie fans? (Sulggiri)

  • Krystal: Well for unnie fans? They take care of us like our own unnies. So it’s like they like us. If we do fansigning, they will go, “Oh, what do you like? I will do like tributes and things like that. Shall I do that for you?” (laugh)

10Asaia: You still do not have a fanclub name yet. If you can make one on your own, what will do call it? (Hwang JooHye juh***)

  • Luna: Functions?
  • Krystal: We are functions right. (laugh)
  • Amber: y.
  • Victoria: If there is a good one, it would be good.
  • Luna: =y.
  • Sulli: How to have such original ideas? I hope there is one (laugh)

  1. in 2 years more than 25 cm wow

  2. […] translete : koreanhighlights Source :10Asia credit : K Bites  29 Mei 2010  fay airos Kategori: Korea […]

  3. lols..they sang a song without even hv any idea what it’s about….lols…

  4. I love fx but the songs they promote usually have crap lyrics


  5. that bowl cut/whatver hairstyle it is should leave Amber’s head ASAP. Like srsly.

  6. let’s not be to hard on these girls… they just sing the songs given to them. they don’t have the freedom to pursue their own music.

    i’ve never been able to understand all of their songs so far. lachata, nu abo and chu are all catchy songs, but MEANINGLESS (it’s the truth).

    as for me, the lyrics/meaning/story of the song comes first followed by the beat/melody.

  7. i’m glad they dont get it either.. honestly.. they really just sing sound effects now. but they look good doing it xD

  8. I also didn’t understand the meaning of this song,
    But I got this feeling that this is secretly a lesbian song.

  9. So much for putting your emotion into singing a song lol

  10. It’s so stupid to sing a song without knowing the meaning behind it. Idols these days just follow what the company give them, that’s just stupid.

    f(x) has a very good on-stage charisma and friendly attitude. I just wish they don’t look and sound dumb on interview.

  11. Someone on Omona mentioned “Cos(x)” as the fanclub name. It would be pronounced Cause.

    Cos(x) and F(x)
    Cause and Effect.

    I thought it was very clever of that person to think of that name.

    • woah nice…clever indeed

      i just hope they choose something that really has a meaning and significance to them and to their fans as well.

    • wow I vote for this although I’m not their fan and not a part of the fanclub. but that’s brilliant! I like! It’s like connected, Cause & Effect.

  12. I thought before they said on their Inkigayo interview that NU ABO had something to do with being the fifth blood type??? And now they don’t know??? ¬_¬

    • that’s for the title. They don’t know the “lyrics”, or meaning of the song.

  13. I wonder why Krystal still live on her own house? I thought the management wants group that they manage to live together so its easier. I actually think they don’t have a choice on that part. Jessica live with the other snsd member right? Can’t be because Krystal is minor because Sulli and Shinee doesnt live on their own house.

    I watch 2NE1 tv and it doesn’t seem that the girls have a choice of staying at home even thought their house is near. I remember them not wanting to move but move together anyway.

    • she lives there because her house is really REALLY close to F(x) dorm. so there is no problem.

  14. oh and one thing, i think they should name their fans (x) haha cuz because functions depends on x and without fans there would be no f(x). But i think it’s too weird for them to call their fans (x).

  15. hm…i think i kinda understand the lyrics now from what i think the reason why they said unnie is because they are the new “it” , new blood , so all the unnie or older girl group move away. lol..that’s what i think..

  16. LOL i cracked up at “Functions” XD

    f(x) is seriously underrated. They need more spotlight cause every time they perform, it’s full of energy compared to other girl groups. Even better than their sister group, SNSD. Love both though. SNSD wins at singing but f(x) totally pwns when it comes to stage presence and confidence.

  17. ha3.. it would be cool if their fanclub name is Y.. just for mathematic reason..xD
    I really like f(x).. I think their image is more casual as compared to other girl group idols. They don’t have crazy/drastic nor overly cute/feminine concepts. And they have that friendly charisma. Maybe that is why most of their fans are girls (aside from the fact that they have Amber, lol)..

  18. most of f(x) songs are meaningless anyway
    i wonder who wrote their songs cuz seriously SM needs to fire him/her

  19. hahaha me too i didn’t understand the meaning of NU ABO… their songs are all like that from Lachata to Chu to Nu Abo….

    fans club name: functions..

    hope someone comes up with a better one….

    i love fx but somehow i don’t like their style! Sulli remains to be the cute one and Luna needs more exposure, she’s super talented

    more power, fx fighting
