2NE1 I Am The Best – Kpop Music Mondays

Ok, so no other band had a chance of being reviewed this week. At all. We got more votes for this video than all other videos…BEFORE the official video was even released. After it was released, we spent hours cleaning up our Facebook wall of everyone posting the 2NE1 video over and over again. In fourth place on our Facebook poll, Naega Chae Chalaga; 6th place: BAM RATATATA. So…yeah. No choice here. BOMBA RATATA TA TA TA TA TA BEET!

And it’s not like we wanted to do another video anyways. When 2NE1 started releasing their teasers for the video we were totally stoked for it, and had a disco party in a laundromat to celebrate. It’s a really awesome song. Really awesome. So awesome that we’re thinking it might be a contender with B2ST’s “Fiction” for our favorite song of the year. No joke. We love B2ST’s song because it’s just a beautiful, beautiful song. 2NE1’s song isn’t really beautiful, but it’s hella exciting. Like, this is the kind of music you put on in the morning when you didn’t really sleep well and are groggy, and you need something to wake you up. This is that song.

2NE1 seems like they needed this song. What was up with all their sad music lately? We reviewed 2NE1’s Lonely and Park Bom’s “Don’t Cry” and were just…upset. That’s not the 2NE1 we knew and loved. Sure, it shows another side to their music. Maybe some people will argue that they can’t be bombastic all the time, and they should make some serious music, but we’ll say that they’re wrong. 2NE1, please keep on making songs like this. I think people like your more mellow music, but they LOOOOVE songs like this. WHO’S WITH ME?! WHO’S WITH ME?!?!?!

As for the video, we said most of what we wanted to say in the video, except for a couple of things. #1 what are they shooting at the end of the video? The pyramid, right? But here’s what’s confusing: they’re outside of the pyramid at first. Then do they go inside of the pyramid to shoot it up? That would be the only thing that makes sense, because they’re all back to back, which means they’re shooting up things around them. If they were outside of the pyramid, then only the one person facing the pyramid would be shooting at it, and all of the other shooters would just be murdering those innocent drummers, who did NOTHING WRONG in the video to deserve being murdered.

2NE1 I Am The Best Bat

Step 1: Hit! Step 2: Run for it!

#2 why does their bat say HIT! on it? Anyone? I don’t know about you, but we don’t need my bats to tell me what to do with them. Not like my bullets say “Shoot!” on them. Not that we have bullets or guns anyways. We’re not from Texas. Or maybe they have different bats for different purposes. That’s their hitting bat. Maybe they have a scratching bat? A bread-buttering bat? We don’t know.

Well, that’s all we can think about for this week. Sorry for the video being late today. We were busy filming Star King for most of today. We would have had it edited over the weekend, but we spent most of the weekend rehearsing for Star King. Ah! So then we came home right after the filming and got right to working! Woohoo! Anyhow, we were told that the episode should air in a couple of weeks. We’ll be putting up our video from the day at the same time as they air theirs (we don’t want to get in trouble for putting it up any sooner).

  1. Someone may have answered this already, but they the put the
    “hit” on the bat, because they made a breaking hit song. They are “breaking” the
    glass with a “hit” bat. You put it together and they made a breaking hit song.
    Also they are breaking records.

  5. Maybe I’m overthinking it, but I thought the ‘hit’ spelled on the bat was referring to a musical hit, as in anything they touch (or bash with their hit bat) turns to musical gold, ‘cuz they ARE the best.  It looekd like the glass cases they were bashing had the platinum and gold record trophies. I love how YG is appropriating a smidge of early British punk aesthetic in this video; note the hair, leather jackets, creepers and bat.  You didn’t talk about the traditional korean drummers they had flanking them for the dance break down at the end…but how badass would it be if they remixed the song and revamped that drum part and took it up to 11??  A girl can dream…

  8. Your videos just keep getting funnier and funnier. Is it because you have more time on your hands? I wonder.

    Love the 2NE1 song and love video even more. I like how they just amp up the crazy near the end of the song. The iridescent ice ream hat made Dara look like GD, so I went with it. And shooting off the platinum guns at the end was so awesome! Front to back, this is probably the best video YG’s put out so far.

    On your comments. I always thought 4Minute put out a pretty strong image, at least in their videos. I guess it’s a little different because they have Hyunah and she’s pretty much aegyo incarnate. Even Park Bom does her best to get in there acting hard in 2NE1’s upbeat videos.

    I thought the “Hit!” on the bat was symbolic of their being hitmakers in the K-pop industry. I mean they are THE BEST, right?

    And, WTH? The WWE belt was epically awesome! Nuff said!

    No way. It’s definitely catchy and even though I don’t like 2NE1, I can’t get „BOMBA RRATATATA” and „nigacheilchalaga” (or however it’s pronounced) out of my head. Great for party. Less great for listening to. Being honest, I can’t see any variety of melody in their songs. Their voices aren’t that good either. Ethnic background was kinda freshy, but that’s all… it wasn’t that special… it was just… twentyone-ish. Sorry Martina, I LOVE YOU, but I will NOT agree that it’s THAT good to be SO high in this year’s ranking T_T But ok, it’s your ranking… (Gosh, you’ll hate me because of that… but I’m a really nice girl usually ^^’)

    BOOMBARRATATATA. Damn.

They are the best.  they are the reason I started to listen to kpop & how I found eat your kimchi on I tunes. Love you guys too.  You make me lol.

  23. I vote for 2NE1. Those guns were awesome!!

    P.S. I like to think they were outside the pyramid, but on a turntable to shoot holes in its side. You’ll notice that after a bit of firing they’ll move their guns to a stationary position until they “rotate” around again.

    P.P.S. I thought it was cool that they thought that the “train hump dance” was actually a train hump dance and so they wanted to make it clear for everyone that it was aptly named as such :D

  24. although bubbles’ was lethal, 2NE1 with guns are more BLAZZIN’! hey, you can’t see girls groups in kpop that can REALLY pull off guns and when I say can pull off, I don’t mean CUTESY.. eww

    The other night my friend and I totally had a dance party to all of the aforementioned songs. We were rockin’ it on my sound system!!! This is such a fun song. So glad you guys reviewd it.

  53. BWAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!! i think this is the funniest video you’ve done so far!!! not sure if it’s due to excitement from going on star king or just sheer exhaustion, but it’s great. the hats you had just made me die. simon’s impression of hulk hogan and then NOT ripping his shirt made me die. martina being all cutsey and then yelling BILASA made me die!! ahhh…..so great.

    also, spudgy looked EXTRA cute at the end!! (and a little afraid of that gun…)

    love you guys!!  you deserve the popularity you’re gaining!!! LONG LIVE EATYOURKIMCHI!!!! VIVA LA SPUDGY!!!!

  71. When I first watched the 2NE1 video, I guffawed when I saw the WWE belt. I are WWE fan. :3 That’s the key element that actually got my sister to watch that video. xD

    I personally love the whole chain maille looks they have going on. This is the look my friend is going to use as inspiration for our next KPop zombie outfit since she makes chain maille jewelry *and* made a chain maille shirt for her Link cosplay. :D
