Monster – Big Bang (MV)

Maximizing my free time tonight! Posting as much as I can!

This time it’s Big Bang’s Monster.

The Video

I really like watching Big Bang videos because of how unique the concepts and their interpretation of the songs are. Every time I watch it it’s as if I grasp the meaning of the song even though I haven’t seen the translations. This video, as scary as some may say it is, is once again another manifestation of those unique concept but you understand their message. Whoever is in charge of conceptualizing this video deserves a lot of credit! I think they can work for a large multinational advertising company with all their concepts!

Big Bang looks scary in the video, but that’s the point, they are supposed to look like a monster but they are telling you that though I look bad on the outside, on the inside I am not. Kind of like the concept of the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. Applause for the make up! Though I like seeing these boys in their normal/fashionable clothes, I didn’t cringe at the sight of them being a monster!

And OMG! TOP.. I think I just dropped dead when I saw this MV! He is so damn handsome in this video! Kyaa!

This video was released almost the same time as Wonder Girl’s Like This. Personally, I like this because of the concept and because I didn’t get too dizzy with it.

The Song 

I don’t really go gaga over Big Bang like I do with Super Junior, but I do like them, don’t get me wrong. But what I especially like about Big Bang as an artist compared to other idol groups is their ability to make music and fit a wide variety of musical genres and always give a good result. I have been listening to their song since I became a Kpop fan. At one point I was getting bored with their songs because it all sounded the same. But recently, I love that they are not afraid to experiment with music. When you hear their songs, it has the distinct Big Bang sound but it’s different from what they released before.

In the past, I could not imagine Big Bang would do a song like this and pull it off. But hearing this song made me understand how versatile they are as an artist. Props to Big Bang for that. I absolutely love listening to this song!

Final Verdict:  An artistic MV paired with a good song. Although you can’t understand Korean, you can fully understand the song through the MV.

Like This – Wonder Girls (MV)

Missed posting a lot of videos so I am making up for the lost…

No Bashing please!

Let’s start off with Wonder GirlsLike This MV.

 

THE VIDEO 

This was released 2 weeks ago. When the teasers came out, I was genuinely excited to see that the Kpop world is venturing out to making a flash mob music video. I thought it would be really great if they pulled it off. I am a fan of flash mob videos and anything to do with flash mobs. I think it’s a very unique concept, if you get the right people and if you choreograph it properly.

However, this when I saw this video after it was released, I got a little dizzy! One moment it focused on Lim then in a split second it suddenly panned to the mob and then to another angle and then to another place. Maybe it’s just the editing or something but I think they should give sometime to let their audience see what they were doing. To me, it doesn’t look like flash mob! I am sorry Wonderfuls, but I think they could have done better if they watched how Fox TVs MOBBED was edited. Also I think they forgot that the concept about a flash mob is like having a few people start dancing then others would follow suit gradually. But in the video once they saw the Wonder Girls dancing, everyone started dancing as if they memorized the steps! It was not very natural. I think they could have executed the concept better, even if its a very short song.

But I do commend JYP for being the first to ever thought of using this concept in a Kpop video. Flash mobs are a trend all over the world and a lot of people feel happy when they see it. I also know that it’s not easy to organize people to be part of the music video, especially when there are about 200 or 300 of them, of which 70 to 80% are not professional dancers. It’s hard enough to organize them much less teach them the steps and put them in the right place. Round of applause for JYP.

THE SONG

I’m glad that they decided to do a song without too much of a retro feel. I was getting a bit tired of that. The song is a very  likable. Not a favorite of mine though (Nobody is still my favorite!) but it’s a very catchy song with a very catchy feel. It’s a song that fits the flash mob concept had they made it work. This is also a new style for the Wonder Girls in terms of the song and I am glad that they pulled it off!

THE DANCE

I always like watching all Wonder Girls dances and this is another one that I like. It’s a very fun dance! Lim looks really cute when doing the dance! The best thing about their dances is that it looks so complicated when you see it in their videos but the steps are actually very simple. Though I think this is the most difficult among their dances! But I loved it!! I saw them  perform in the live broadcasts and it looks so good! I think I should start watching tutorials now…

Final Verdict: A catchy Wonder Girls song with a must learn dance, but the flash mob video makes you dizzy!
