SISTAR covered Christina Aguilera's "Candyman" not only in song but also in MV for strategy game, 'Haejeon (Battlefield/Sea War) 1942'!


The girls are dressed in sailor uniforms, befitting the nature of the game, while singing in a fun, jivey manner.  The MV looks pretty much exactly like Christina Aguilera's minus the excited sailors cheering her on.  Check out how SISTAR made it their own.

Love Sistar, but couldn't understand anything they said. The Engrish is so real in this. XDDDLove the beat of the oldies-beat of the song and their lovely voices though ~ X3

Kind of funny how some of the flags depicted in the background (like South Korea, ChiCom, Kazakhstan) didn't exist in 1942, and others like Hungary were Axis countries.

Dear writer, you can ban me from commenting or delete this or whatever but just know that this makes you look like you didn't know the song Sistar sang wasn't Candyman. If you didn't know and you wrote an article about it anyway without looking it up, then you should look for another line of work because that is just unprofessional.Yuck.

As much as I love Sistar and Christina Aguilera, this title is totally misleading. AKP did it for clickbait, which is tacky and somewhat typical of some of their articles here. It's not even the same song, and just because they did a 50s troop theme, it doesn't mean they copied Christina- furthermore, Christina's "Candyman" MV isn't even an original idea, that was her paying tribute to the Andrews Sisters, who did these kinds of concerts for the troops, including the famous "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy". Here's an original video of them doing it, which is definitely a scene Christina pulled from to pay tribute in her video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8of3uhG1tCI

This MV is obviously a remake of Candyman in every way besides the song itself and obviously the singers. Both this and Candyman are depicting the USO (United Service Organization) shows that have entertained US military service members at home and deployed overseas since 1941 and WW2 through to today. And both Candyman and this Sistar version are depicting WW2, not the 50's. The list of actresses and singers who entertained US troops serving all over the world during WW2 is huge. Wasn't just the Andrew Sisters, even though Christina's version kind of hints to them.
