Seoul Beats Idols Music Film Drama TV Media Style Culture TweetcultureSB Bite: Anna Kendrick Delivers an Electric Shock Written by Fannie On March 28, 2013Just weeks after f(x) showed up at indie music festival SXSW, theyve surfaced again in the Western media and blogosphere, this time in a Funny or Die skit with a new member in tow: none other than Americas sweetheart, Anna Kendrick (most recently of Pitch Perfect fame).
Funny or Die is a popular website that regularly produces humorous videos, oftentimes with cameos from big stars from all over Western pop culture, and Anna Kendrick just happens to be one of the biggest trending stars in Hollywood right now, so while this may only be an internet release, its still a pretty big deal in terms of exposure for f(x). The fact that its a video not meant to be taken seriously makes it all the more better, as put into context, it lessens the pervasive offense caused by bad acting and/or accents (excepting native speakers) that have plagued other more serious K-pop attempts to break into Western media.
Its also interesting to note that there are subtitles for the video in both languages, which makes it so that Korean audiences will also have no problems understanding the video. Eastern pop culture trying to invade the West whilst Western pop culture tries to invade the East could this media match be any more perfect? And seriously, how cute is Victoria?
Readers, what are your thoughts?
(Funny or Die)Fannie Has been a follower of K-pop for more than a decade.
On February 7th, f(x)’s Krystal was officially graduated from high school.

She stated, “I will consider it a new start and will show everyone a passionate side of myself. Please continue to watch my progress. The other members [f(x)] will come to cheer me on.”
In related news, Krystal has been accepted into the Sungkyunkwan University.
