Hot Chocolate With Boyfriend

First off, let’s start by saying thanks to Boyfriend for being such great sports. Their new video is really quite cool and has an interesting take on the Peter Pan story. Check it out if you haven’t seen it yet!

As for this video we shot, we know it’s a bit random, but it’s something we had a lot of fun doing. We hope you liked it as well. Woohoo!

For a bit of backstory, we’re on pretty good terms with Starship Entertainment. They’ve got good people working there. We did an interview with Sistar a long time ago, and we also did a video with K.Will last year, and then Boyfriend gave an acceptance speech at our Eatyourkimchi Awards for winning Aegyo of the year.

For Boyfriend’s comeback, we all wanted to do something together, but we knew that everyone’s schedules are pretty crazy. We’re in an out of this and that country, as are Boyfriend. So how could we shoot something fun without taking too much of everyone’s time? This seemed like a winner to us!

And they were not only totally game for the idea, and also very fun and energetic in the video, but they were also surprised at how fast it was. When we were done filming they were like “really? That’s it?” Yep. It was 6 minutes of filming. BOOYA!

You might be wondering why we like doing silly skits instead of longform sit down interviews. I don’t really think we’re thaaaaaat into interviews anymore. If we had the choice, we’d rather to something silly and fun. We’re really inspired by Jimmy Fallon’s skits, in which Tom Cruise pounds eggs on his head while Jason Statham gets glasses of water thrown at him. Those are fun! They show the celebrity’s personality, and doesn’t make them answer all of the questions they’ve been asked a bagillion times over. I’m glad Starship was down for not only something this fun, but also for being comfortable with something non-traditional (which we’ve had rejected by other companies before).

  1. Okay, so from what I gathered in the MV (this is just my interpretation) but the plot is really interesting because it’s setting a story as a preface to the common tale we all know as Peter Pan, except in this story, Peter Pan is the bad guy. The ending was a major plot twist – I had to re-watch this several times to notice the minute details that really brought the story together. The story starts off with the members as a gang of thugs but at this point we don’t know why, after seeing flashbacks of them as innocent, all dressed in white, and smiling together, it’s safe to say some sort of transformation occured. If you notice specifically at 0:40 in the MV, Donghyun is having a flashback about the girl (presumably Wendy) and you can’t see his left hand. I’ve come to the conclusion that the members are the lost boys and that Peter Pan is the head bad guy (mafia boss or whatever you want to call him), recruiting young boys to join his “gang.” He brought the girl (Wendy) to Neverland, but when Donghyun got too close to her, he got extremely selfish (tried to choke him) and then ultimately decided that if he couldn’t have her, then no one could (at the end of the story), thus killing her with the bomb and Donghyun injuring his left hand as a consequence of the explosion. After seeing the confrontation scene directly after having seen the blurred out wanted poster, I’m pretty sure it said “kidnapping” at the header (I could barely make it out, but it seems most logical), Peter Pan would most likely be wanted for kidnapping, as that’s literally what he does (kids kinda consent because they’re lured in but whatever, they’re kids and it’s still kidnapping). The hexagonal room with the books I’m assuming is the passageway between the two worlds, which is how the lost boys were able to find the wanted poster in the first place – why would there be a wanted poster for Peter Pan in Neverland? I could be wrong, unless this is another sort of magical room that just contains all sorts of information and that’s how they got it. And so after having experienced a terrible loss after the confrontation with Peter Pan, Donghyun creates a persona to cope with his grief, thus becoming Captain Hook (when he puts the hook on his left hand, cue AHA moment).

    My favorite part has to be when he puts the hook on his hand. It really got me curious and lead me to understanding the story better. All in all I think this plot is absolutely brilliant and I’m so glad you guys brought this MV to my attention. Of course I really want to win one of those marvelous CDs but damn that’s the best plot for a Boyfriend music video I think I’ve seen yet and I’ve followed them since their debut!

    • hmm, that’s an interesting interpretation. I watched the MV a few times I couldn’t seem to get it. I think they should have had more of the plot in the MV and less of the choreo!
      What I found interesting about what you said is the whole portraying Peter Pan as the bad guy. In the actual story of Peter Pan (and not the one adapted by Disney and what people commonly know Peter Pan to be), Peter Pan actually kills the children when they grow up (and thus essentially becomes the bad guy). Ao when I watched the MV, I thought maybe that fact could be relevant to the MV?
      idk haha. It was a confusing MV! :)

      • Agreed! The plot was brilliant and I’m all about it. I’m beginning to see Peter Pan in a totally new light. You’re right, Disney does has a way of skewing things…

  5. “My Favorite part”… well I liked right in the the beginning… I saw abs it made me happy lol… but don’t take me wrong I’m not just into kpop just for the pretty faces and bodies :) But yeah i really like the sound of this song very upbeat which is one thing i really look for in music, something that makes you want to want to dance around and wiggle your butt haha. I even sent this song to a friend recently cause I liked it so much, so i kinda introduced her to Boyfriend :) But back to the video I found it very interesting, it made me wonder who they were portraying at first then it showed it throughout the video… I think i was a little slow to catch onto who they were i-i slow me… yeah done.

  6. I don’t have specific favourite part in the mv, but I really liked how their interpretation of the Peter Pan story turned it into something else. Peter Pan has always been a childhood favourite of mine, and a majority of the remakes you see Peter Pan as the good guy. It was refreshing to see a different side of the tale. Kinda cool to see how the character of Hook came to be and why he was so obsessed with catching Peter Pan. And now we know why!

  8. Haha such a fun skit~! They were super modest and cute whoa, I definitely look forward seeing more from Boyfriend! I’ll check out some of their other songs and MV, they’re so likable so I’ll definitely get into them! I’d love to have some coco with them haha – and also a signed album with that coco, please! :D That way I could learn more about them and their songs, and come on, having a signed album is just too cool.

    So as for the contest, I’d say *my favorite part of the Boyfriend Obsession MV* was when the girl was captured and had a bomb held against her, and then there’s the explosion which throw Boyfriend to the floor. I don’t know, I feel maybe they’re trying to say that she was “the bomb” (literally lol) or that love can be dangerous and hurt you. It was a unexpected ending, but therefore I feel that stood out from the video! The video is nice, I like it! BOYFRIEND FIGHTING~! :)

  9. But how do I win a signed SooZee CD?

  10. My favorite part :
    The Girl EXPLOODED !! Whhhaa, made me laugh out loud for all the wrong reasons >_< Some might argue the bomb in her hands was the cause, but we know the real reason; just imagine any fangirl being close a hot idol like Boyfriend, it's gonna go down like that

  15. My favourite part of the Boyfriend MV is when SooZee gets in the car and…oh wait…
    If the skit proves one thing it’s the power of broken English and body language as an effective communication tool. I didn’t even need the subtitles :D

  16. My fave part would have to be the second scene with the punching bag. I mean, hello abs!!! I don’t think it has anything to do with the video plotline, but it was lovely nonetheless.

  18. Oh I have so much to say…
    Loving their comeback, I was literally itching for the release after watching the teaser. It’s definitely an upgrade from their previous concepts and I think this suits them well.. they look like some bad-ass Lost Boys! <3

    … and then OMG they seem like such comics in your skit! Hahaha! Especially Kwangmin (or is that Youngmin? Hopeless when it comes to twins…) peeking into the car during filming LOOOOL.

    As for my favourite part of the MV… Hmmm… decisions decision…

    I think my favourite part would be the choreography during Minwoo's rap in the 2nd verse… LOVING THE LIT UP STOOLS!!
    Got me excited to see their comeback stage now #danceprops4life

  21. Oh wow, Boyfriend! I love the skit so much!

    What I love about the video is the concept and the story behind it. The fact that they happen to be some sort of the good guys even though you see it is Hook all along at the end. Peter Pan is the bad guy in this scenario and it was heartbreaking what happened between the girl and Hook.

  22. Wow those are some expensive empty hot chocolate cups like wow. Oh and it’s sad that some companies are old farts and are not in this funnier way of interviewing (I’m guessing SM? The way they treated you in SHINee’s interview makes me sad). Oh and Soo Zee! You’ll actually make a great kpop idol! Hahaha.

  24. As to what my favorite part of the boyfriend video was: The books. They have a lot of books named “Nude design” at least 15 of them :) What are they planning on doing with 15 books on nude design… (scratches chin and raises eyebrow…) :p

  25. Haha I wondered why there was a big black square in the background when Simon was in the car. I figured they were lurking in the background. Good skit guise! P.S. Can’t wait to see Soo Zee in the next Boyfriend MV :P

  28. Oh wow!! Hot chocolate with Boyfriend, I want some. I love the concept of their new music video, I was in love with Perter Pan when I was a kid, hence the fact I am from the UK lol. But what I really loved was the bookcase, that is a awesome bookcase, I want one! The whole video was sort of a modern take of the story. LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT xx

  30. I really hope other entertainment companies start to see the benefit of doing simple but cute things like this and how they can reach a much broader audience. We’d love to eventually be able to do stuff like this too. Boyfriend were so cute in this!

  32. I’m going to be completely honest. The fact that the book she was reading was “Peter and Wendy” by J.M. Barrie is my favorite thing about the MV! The original version of Peter Pan (by J.M. Barrie) is basically my favorite story EVER and it was awesome. And the hints of a bit of a Peter Pan theme throughout made me smile even more. =D Wooo~ Peter Pan!!!!

      • Well hi there Simon, or Martina, or.. maybe Soozee, or Leigh even. Although… I wonder… Meems?
        I love my new Nasty badge as well! :D
        So after watching Boyfriend’s video I wasn’t entirely sure about the plot, girl and boyfriends looking for Neverland and she gets killed because she can’t throw away the bomb and one boyfriend looses their hand cause he couldn’t take a step back from the bomb.. (seriously, were they even paying attention to that bomb?) and then he became hook, so who was the guy with the bomb?
        Well, that aside I gotta have one of those gravity-defying libraries! So awesome!
        Also, the song itself was pretty good, I’ll definitely go check out the rest of the album!
