A short while ago we reviewed B2ST’s “Soom”. This week we review B2ST’s new song, “Beautiful” and – whoa, is it ever different. Different in the same SHINee Lucifer vs SHINee Hello different. The former was all rough and badass, while the latter was all cutesy and made you wonder what ever happened to the badass side. The same thing’s happening here with B2ST’s new video. “Shock” and “Soom” were cool, while this one is all cutey. It’s a bit awkward, and – in fact – we read that they were finding it awkward for them as well, and that they just did this video for their fans. Hmmm.

We were really harsh on them this week for their English, because – really – the English is quite bad this time around, and I think we need to take a stronger stance on this. I mean, someone’s out there putting in these English lines, but it doesn’t seem as if this person, these people, know enough English to know that it’s awkward. What’s worse is that these English issues could EASILY be solved/prevented if they just asked one of the thousands of thousands of English speaking people living in Korea. Seriously now: B2ST shouldn’t be singing to their teenaged audience to “make a love baby. Just make a love.”

Otherwise, what the hell is up with the girl in the video as well? Supposedly there’s going to be a part 2 coming soon, and she better redeem herself somehow, but the way that it seems now she’s an evil b!@#$ who leaves her boyfriend when he breaks his arm and can’t dance for the contest…AND she winds up dating the new guy who she was clearly checking out the minute he stepped through the door. AND isn’t the new guy a member of B2ST anyway? This girl’s dating different members of the same band? Not cool. She better be dying of cancer or secretly saving everyone’s life because she’s otherwise the worst girlfriend EVER.

It’s also too bad that this song doesn’t have its own dance. There’s lots of dancing in the story for the video, but no real dancing for the song itself. And that’s too bad, because B2ST are otherwise good dancers with some really iconic dance moves. Ah well.

Finally, as always, big thanks to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations! This video was longer than usual, so thanks a lot for still translating it for us! Also, don’t forget to vote for who we should dance to in our upcoming Kpop 2010 video. We’ve got well over 5,000 votes already, so thanks to everyone who already voted! One last thing: if you’re a fan of B2ST and this song, you can buy the mini-album in the link below. Huzzah!

BEAST Mini Album Vol. 4 - Lights Go On Again
ToFebruary
Gmarket
  1. Spudgy is GREEN? WHAT IS THIS!

  2. OH MY GOSH ghetto Martina! xD

  3. Annie

    I Know this comment is late but MARTINA, that ghetto impression, was awesome, so awesome. I couldnt stop laughing especially when “she” said “i will cut you!”, Ah-mey-zeeeng!

  4. I didn’t think the girl broke up with him because of the arm – I thought they had already broken up by this point and were on awkward terms with one another, hence why she froze up upon seeing him.

  5. LOL Martina 1:28-1:48 Ye-ayh! That was worth all the hours I’ve spent here at EatYourKimchi.com

  6. They probably say “In the cube” because they are from Cube Entertainment,but it still sounds weird :))

  7. I personally think that both types of videos were amazing for both bands. Every band tends to have a variety moods to their music. It doesn’t always have to be bad ass or cutesy. They can change it up. Granted Shock, Breathe and Lucifer were all incredibly sexy videos…

  8. in the cube means the company that they are from.

  9.  you should change spudgy’s mohawk to blue because the little cartoon spudgys that come out in the middle of videos have blue mohawks and are really cute so spudgy would be cute with a blue mohawk                                         cos hes cuter

  10. i think the reason she dumped him is because of the new kid played by gikwang at the end of the video where he dances they hug so i think she dumped the guy with the cast because she liked gikwangs person

  11. simon is sooooooo! funy! and Spudge is the better dog dancer ever :D you should make a music video for Spudge and we will do a fansclub, you should call oppa? is a joke, bu..t it is a good idea xD greetings from chile!

  12. One last thing: if you’re a fan of B2ST and this song, you can buy the mini-album in the link below. Huzzah! BEAST Mini Album Vol. 4 – Lights Go On Again. For the original post on Kpop Music Mondays: B2ST’s Beautiful and other kpop ..

  13. … Cube Entertainment is the name of their agency.

  14. LOL. It’s almost different like Infinite BTD vs. Infinite Nothing’s Over. Like, WOAH. They were all so manly in BTD, and then all cutesy in Nothing’s Over! HAHAH!

  15. MBLAQ!!!! I love them soo much!!! They are soo freaking amazing!…..and HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Actually in Part 2 it explains why she broke up with him. She thought he got in a fight and she doesn’t want to be with a violent guy. He gets in a fight at one time out of jealously. (not going to spoil it but seen part 2 and it explains why)

  17. Hi! Umm.. Beast company's name is 'Cube Entertainment' so, 'In the Cube' means they were making this song in their company!

  18. Hi people!
    Love the website, I'm toooooootally addicted ^o^

    I wanted to react to something said in the video about problems TVXQ had had about singing 'I've got you under my skin', and B2st not being in trouble about saying 'Let's make love, baby'… well… has anyone paid close attention to what G-Dragon says in Lollipop (the version by BigBang alone, not the one featuring 2NE1)?

    Okay, so what's between [ ], I had to look up on a website because I just couldn't make sense of what he was saying, but the rest is just clearly audible: 'Now here she comes she wants some of my lollipop, she [touchin on] my body makes me wanna rock, so here I come I give it to her straight up and down, so here I come, here I come, come,come,come, come'

    Okay, so I'm no specialist, but it sounds soooooooooooo sexual to me… or maybe it's just me? XD So I don't know… maybe Korean people have a different understanding of what is or isn't shocking…?

    Anyways, love your videos guys!!

    Hugs and kisses

  19. Hi! :) Im new here and i was wondering if anyone knew what the 2 beginning songs for b2sts beautfil mv are? and also the ending song? please reply! :)

  20. Out of all of the entertainment companies I think Intercube abuses english the most… both 4minute and b2st make me cringe. Even if the other companies don't make any sense gramatically they at least have decent accents. Anywhoo~~ have you ever though of reviewing Korean dramas or movies?

  21. I saw the video on youtube. And about the 'in the cube' Junhyeong said this because the management that beast is in is Cube Entertainment. And I think beast is so much better than mblaq.

  22. where's today's music monday video?? :p

  23. Aw man, poor B2ST. My vote goes to them even if it is awkward! By the way, has anyone noticed how accepted it seems to be in kpop videos to kill your ex? First MBLAQ and now Minzy in Go Away. It's rather disturbing…

  24. MBLAQ! Totally!! At least the girl from the beautiful mv doesn't cheat behind the back over and over and over and over again! lol

  25. OMG =)) ROFL =)) So love it :))))

    Btw, what video editor do you use??

  26. i vote B2ST.
    i think that girl is so bad;;
    why does she leave him??
    because he broke his arm??
    it's must be kidding!!

    ps-i can't write english well…
    but, it;s my best!!>///<

  27. i vote B2ST.
    that girl is bad, why leave that man because he broke his arm.
    (sorry, i can't write english well…… >////<)

  28. i vote b2st. ^_^

    that girl is the same one from soom/breath and in that video, she was with junhyung (guy with the broken arm) in the beginning and at the end she was with gikwang (the new student guy)… i see a trend going. >:[

  29. wow. both the girls were crazy and evil ex-girlfriends. i would have to say that B2ST's girl is worst.

  30. i think the girl in beast is more evil because who breaks up with a guy just because he broke his arm.

  31. i vote for beast

  32. Not to derail the subject too much, but I think the king of all awkwardly inappropriate English lines is in DBSK's "Purple Line." I mean, really, who's genius idea was it to have Mickey declaring to the entire English-speaking world that he really wants to touch himself? I don't know which would be worse: the writer had absolutely no idea what that meant and just happened to throw those words together in that specific order, or they knew exactly what it meant… and left it there anyway. Gah.

    Thanks for all your videos! You both do such a fabulous job, and I love being able to peek through a window to another culture. :)

    ps- B2ST = be two street. Just sayin'.

  33. Haha, I absolutely love your Music Monday videos! xDD When I watched this video, I was a bit disappointed in B2ST for their lyrics. : And lovin the meatball sub! xD For the competition, it's a bit hard to choose since both girls are both unkind to "Btoost" and MBLAQ, I'd have to choose MBLAQ for this one. ^__^ Can't wait to see the results and the new videos! (^o^)/

  34. totally voting for btoost here. the girl is pure EVIL!!

    i think you guys should do the orange caramel one. i think it's, magic girl. :)
    nice video, as always.

  35. Nonononono! The video's story is like this:
    1. They dance :) and the cool guy has a cute girlfriend
    2. A new guy comes to the class who is a bit… less cool than the others but the cute girl likes him
    3. And… the cool guy at first doesn't worry but later he realizes that their relationship with the cute girl is in danger and he worries so much that he can't properly concentrate when he dances and broke his arm… auch!
    4. The girl breaks up with her cool boyfriend because he chooses the "looser" guy
    5. Everybody realizes that the "looser" actually is a great dancer!
    6. And the end: pure junhyung! T^T

  36. So freakin funny with this video. I loved Martina taking care of Simon lol and her going all ghetto. Is Minzy of 2ne1 becoming an influence? Lol too funny. Spudgy always looks unimpressed lol. I am not familiar with either of these groups so yet again not voting. And yes Simon meatball subs rock. Oh speaking of 2ne1 when are you guys going to review their "It Hurts" mv? It's a great song and gotta love the mv.

  37. B2st… evil woman.

  38. Meatball Sub!!! lol.

  39. HEY, haven't watched this vid yet… just wondering what it's like over there with the attack from North Korea today :-/ Sounds scary… and I watched a raw video of it… and it looked very scary. Stay safe over there! Politicians here in the U.S. are saying that we should take this attack very seriously… it's the most serious one since the Korean War "ended" around 1950ish.

  40. Oh and shouldn't "The" be upper case as well, but especially with the word "English" lol. love the video though, you guys are hilarious XD

  41. Okay I have a question that's been bugging me for a while, you guys are English teachers in South Korea, yet for your "the english" section, you write English with a lower case… isn't that incorrect… kind of ironic, don't you think. :P

  42. Hello, my friend told me about your blog and I am glad she did!
    I am a Korean girl living in Toronto and this blog is helping me ease my homesickness :-)

    Anyways….
    I remember when I was in Korea 9 years ago, there were many songs (some for teenagers) in Korea that had lines like "make love" or "make a love". I think it was because when you translate the word "make" alone it translates into "MAHN-DUL-DA" in Korean.
    When the songwriters use "make love" or or "make a love" in the songs, maybe they thought "SAH-RAHNG EUL MAN-DUL-UH"
    That phrase, "Sah-Rahng Eul Man-Dul-Da" is a romantic and cute Korean way of saying "Cherish and strengthen love" for people in a relationship or "Starting a romance(love)". So in a weird way, the phrase "make love" becomes a cute and romantic line, and is able to pass the censorship.

    I used to think (before I could understand/speak English well) that phrases like "make love" or "make a love" had the cute/lovely meaning, and I think there are many people in Korea thinking like that, too. Many Korean people (although they can read and write English) have a trouble when it comes to expressions or phrasal verbs, and I guess it's because they are used to word-to-word, literal translations. So people fail to recognize that "to make love" means having an intercourse :-o
    Much later I found out that "to make love" is actually used as a phrasal verb to say "having sex". After that, every time I hear Korean songs that had "make love" or "make a love" in them, I am like, "Oh no….." (except for few songs that are meant to be raunchy and sexy and correctly used the phrase to say "let's have sex")

    I totally agree that songwriters or the album producers should check their songs with English speakers before they release the songs.
    Since K-pop is becoming popular and reaching for the wider audience (including English speaking people), they should be more careful when they put English lines in their songs and avoid embarrassment.

  43. i think Beautiful was better than Y
    but the english were too bad for all

  44. o, and acutally, beast's management is called "cube academy", so thats why theyre saying "in the cube".
    it has nothin to do with the whole song i think.

    they also said that in shock, at the beginning :)

  45. lol martina ur accent is soooo coolio:DDDD
    i liked the part where u went "you dunno me, you dunno me!"
    and simon, no matter how many times u say btwost, it always makes me laugh so hard:)

  46. Another tough one… I think that B2ST's girlfriend left him for the new guy? Which is just as reprehensible as leaving him for a broken arm, but a little more logical? Also, thw rodl they live in seems very damaging for the female psyche. I mean, just look at the dance competition at the beginning, the guy groups get these totally sick moves and what does the girl group get to do? Wiggle around a little and do a couple hip thrusts. Clearly it's hard for a woman placed in that position to think clearly.
    As for MBLAQ, it seems like less of a case of an evil ex-girlfriend, and more of a case of a guy who can't let go. When he finds her cheating (at a drunken party no less – this doesn't make it right, just less incriminating in the long run) he beats the guy she was with then expects her to leap into his arms like he just saved her when really, would you want to be seen with a guy like that? Not to mention the fact that he shoots her in the head at the end.
    All in all, I have to go with B2ST because while both girls cheated, B2ST's girl didn't get shot at the end…
    Also, I've definitely taken to calling them B'two'st.

  47. I have to vote for MBLAQ. Clearly the girlfriend crossed some sort of line… he busted out a gun and killed her afterall…that has to say something about their relationship, right?

    Despite B2st's song having some messed up english, i found it so darn catchy that I have to keep listening to it… after I listen to MBLAQ's "Y" first of course :)

  48. Beast!!!!!!<3

  49. I love your videos! They are sooooo funny! I have to say MBLAQ (Oh yeah! lolz) I really like MBLAQ, and I think that Hyo-Rim plays a more evil role. (Seo Hyo-Rim Fighting) lolz I love her too. Did you know that she was the one in the video? It's not very easy to tell unless you know it's her. EYK FIGHTING!!! ^_^

  50. do the new orange caramel song aing!

  51. Your Music Mondays always make my day! Hilarious!! I agree with the english.. B2st’s english lines always remind me of raunchy 90′s R&B video and early 2000 rap video (with all that named the record company, your producer, etc thingy)..

    For the vote: i simply go with b2st.. for MBLAQ video, no wonder she left him.. who wanted a boyfriend who kept a gun, right?? ;D

  52. Lol xD .. I just saw my name in the vid !!
    *jumps* lol xD

  53. There is a dance for Beautiful! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg9qi8ZRM9Y
    It's too fricken cute XD

  54. Ha!!!!!1 your right the English is crazy xD

  55. Loved both songs and their videos, but I agree with the english in B2ST's Beautiful, What?! So now to vote on which girl was more evil, I give my vote to B2ST, that girl completely dissed him because of his broken arm, I think that was the reason, not sure. But, regardless, my vote goes to her.

  56. I love how Martina had to get ghetto on the girl…"Oh no she didnt!"..lmao had me crackin up. Love the site…Keep up the great work!:D

  57. Martina's socks are really cute~ :D
    btw, why is your remote control taped on the couch?!?!

  58. B2ST 'Beautiful"
    the gf is so evil, pitting members against each other, breaking up, breaking hearts, etc.

  59. I also thought the girl broke up with him because he broke his arm. STUPID GIRL!!!!

    I vote for b2st!

  60. hmmmm i thought and hard about this with my friend. (friend says hi by the way) and we determined (did i spell that right?) that while both ex-girlfriends suck, seriously, who breaks up over a broken arm? thats just cruel and unusual punishment. The girl from MBLAQ "Y" just cheated him, which if you think about it, happens all the time. but still sucks.

    so final vote: Btwost (B2st) with Beautiful!

  61. Gaaah this viedo confuses me so much….between the google translate of the korean and the english I'm all wrapped up lol.

    As to the evil girlfriend?…. without a doubt MBLAQ. For goodness sakes her cheating leads to him shooting her and killing himself. The woman is a MONSTER. I bet if they had shown her face clearly in the video she would have gotten a host of anti-fans lol. Although, I'm not sure what I would do if given the chance to leave Lee Joon for Seung Ho……..Seung Ho!!!

  62. could you review orange caramel magic girl and a~ing……hmmmm and after school bang too……thanks :p

  63. lol, i loved your ghetto girl….and the wayyy to dark lip liner~~omg haha…tooo funny

  64. I must admit, I kept waiting for the awesome dance moves to pop out at any second and it never happened. Even when they sing Beautiful live :/ But it's cute and they seem to have fun…?
    I'd have to choose B2ST's Beautiful for the evil ex-girlfriend. He broke his arm, who cares! You don't break up with him! Or maybe she didn't want to do it and make a love child with him…?
    I really like MBLAQ's Y, but she doesn't seem super evil or anything. That MV is more like most evil ex-boyfriend 8/

  65. you guys should do Orange Caramel with A~ing since it is the cutest ever

  66. Hey I fully approve of make a Love Baby because if not for the thousands of miles, hordes of fangirls, and my loyal BF I'd be more than willing to make a Love Baby with quite a few members of BtwoST

  67. B2st? wow, that was a shock for me o.O
    anyway, I love the broken arm thing, kkk xD

    whoa, and I love this week's English corner – I'd love to have teachers like you >0<

    ps. a vote for Mblaq – Y <3

  68. I love this song but it’s getting borng after 5 times.

    I listen to Ayy Girl more even though it’s not good..

    Listening to NOTHING these days.. I guess KPOP is no longer fun..?

  69. I think B2ST's girlfriend is baddass.
    MBLAQ's girlfriend maybe didn't love him and went to another,but B2ST girlfriend just went to another.Didn't say why.And when that Guy #2 went in the class she started to forget about the Guy #1.
    Maybe after while there be Guy number #3 or even #4.:D
    P.S.Keep the good work!^^ I allways can't wait til the new video has come out.

  70. Nicole

    Amazing as always. Martina your ghetto chick impression is pretty funny…though I think Mark still has you beat :)

  71. I was a little confused with the English, although I fell in love with the song. About the Mirotic lyric incident, I was wondering what's wrong these lyrics? They're fine. My vote goes to Mblaq because the song was mostly about the "evil ex-girlfriend" while, 비스트 was all cutesy.

  72. MBLAQ MBLAQ MBLAQ! <3 lol.. I'm just very biased about this one..

    Btw; martina.. I love your cute-girl imitations! XD 'It's a puppy! 8D' Amazing! XD

  73. When I first heard it I thought it said "Makin' love baby, just makin' love." Later I realized it said "make A love" and thought "huh?" what does that mean? I figured it was supposed to mean the equivalent of making love, or something like make a love in an odd Frankenstein way.

    Maybe the girl broke up with him because she was planning to go feature film "May" on him and turn him into a Frankenstein's creature, but he broke his arm and ruined her perfect man? Hmmm it makes much more sense now.
