Just A Few Words:
When I visited Korea this summer (June/July 2012) this song was everywhere.  It was really cool and fun at first, but after like the 10th time in 24 hours, it did get a little annoying.  However, it is still one of  my favorite songs.
This is also one of the few songs by f(x) that makes immediate sense.

English:  3 / 10
The pronunciation is great except...gauge.  It should be pronounced "gay-juh" and not "gay-jee."  I take away some more points since SM made their most fluent English speaker in f(x) say it...

Translation Difficulty:  4 / 10
Some of the bridge gave me grief...
