Yes, our words are quite strong here. We don’t go out right and say stuff like this usually, but we’ll say it now: this is quite possibly the best kpop song of 2011. Sure, everyone has their different opinions, and many people will argue for different songs and videos. Our opinion is just an opinion, and this one may well be argued against. That’s fine, but it doesn’t change the fact that we’re so immensely impressed by this song that we’re willing to call it the best Kpop song of 2011 thus far.

We mentioned on Twitter that it sounds like Enrique Inglesias’ “Heartbeat”, but we didn’t say that as a plagiarism charge. The piano does sound similar, but B2ST’s piano chords instantly struck us. When we first heard it we thought “man, this is gonna be an awesome song.” And we were right. Really, such a great improvement from B2ST’s “Beautiful”, which – we think – really strayed from their image. Cutie boys being cutey and lovey dovey…nah. That didn’t seem right. Here, they’re not bombastic, and they’re not ninnies either. They find a comfortable balance between both sides with an awesome song. Well done.

That doesn’t make this our favorite video of the year, though. That honor still goes to Big Bang’s “Love Song”. We got really annoyed by the pen at the beginning. Sure, we know that they’re trying to show that he’s writing in a diary, but couldn’t they have done so with a quieter pen? God! That thing was LOUD! And we kinda get the whole disappearing into dust thingy at the end. He’s trying to rewrite his story with her, but then he realizes that she’s really gone or something, and it’s supposed to be sad. Sure. That didn’t stop us from thinking about vampires, and if there’s one thing about us that’s consistent thus far, is that we’ll make videos about the weirdest stuff that pops into our minds.

B2ST Fiction Video Still

Dear Kpop Video Girls: Plz cry more than one tear from now on

On a side note: what’s the deal with single-tear crying? We saw it in Park Bom’s “Don’t Cry”, and I’m sure we saw it elsewhere before. Why don’t we see some genuine, breakdown sobbing? This single-tear crying business is just getting odd now. Lip quivering, people! You need to quiver your lips when you cry! We get that they’re trying to show how they’re holding back emotion, but can’t stop their tears from squeaking out, but now it just seems like they’re being lazy. More tears! More passion!

Anyhow, good chance is that you’re here because of our giveaway contest. Here’s what you need to know:

If you don’t win the CD, you can still buy B2ST’s new album here. It’s definitely awesome and worth it. And you don’t have to worry about your location: they’ll ship internationally. Great success!

One last note as well: this is the last Kpop Music Monday you’ll see in this setting. We moved the camera over for this episode to hide all of the boxes in our apartment. We’re starting our move on Wednesday! Huzzah! We found a new place, right here in Bucheon, right beside our current place, except it’s a lot bigger. With a full size kitchen! Wow! No oven, though. Pooh. Anyhow, we’ll be filming our WTF segment in this apartment tomorrow night, and then our TL;DR video for this week will actually be in our new apartment. Yay! We’ll post a video of our new place soon. We’ve got some other videos that we have to put out first :D

  1. BAAATOOOOOOST1!!!!!!
    OMG I am sooo loving their music! I like “Say no” and “Shock” a little better than this one, but all of their songs are so good! They have such an amazing blend of vocals and the music it is set to is always right up my alley! Maybe I am just a CUBE fanboy in general because I have a very similar feeling for stuff by 4Minute. Anywho, I am so excited that there is more material from B2ST coming soon! WOOO!! My whole summer feels brighter already! :)

  2. Is it just me or does Simon is on the verge of bursting into laughter when he goes “This is Mordney present”? I laught so hard because there’s a moment when he was smiling somehow akwardly for a bit too long. I watched it at least five times, but still not quite sure if I’m right or… just crazy o_0

  3. dodgy football kick dance

  4. The’ my heart is heavy but my love is weightless’ dance

  5. It should be called the FRICTION dance!! I mean, their pronunciation kinda sounded like “friction, friction” plus the dance has their soles rubbing against the floor. GO FRICTION!

  6. It’s should be called FATALITY-REALITY dance ;D When they’ve seen what reality can do, they’re just slowly going back to their fiction world :P

  7. its should be called ” the bored-um ” dance……..because you would do this dance while waiting for your boyfriend or girlfriend to call you, or you would be doings while waiting in a long line at an amusement park !

  17. The Dance should be called Unmoving Skating :P ohhh by the way my youtube account its also YSCD1 :)

We wont be with them on the music shows, but we´ll dance the dance at home, and be with them in our thoughts. For us I-b2uties there is not really much we can do for or with them, so just having this, a simple and single thing, that connect us would mean ALOT! Just one thing that make us feel close to them, to make us feel as one…♥
