B.A.P. is a rookie group that has debuted with one hell of a single. If you haven’t checked it out yet, watch the video here:

 

We’re really impressed by this song. As you may know, the whole cutie-boy image makes us gag, and new bands seem to fall back on that concept for safety’s sake. It works for different audience, but – since we’re older – it just doesn’t do it for us. We were surprised, then, to see that this song had such an aggressive concept going for it. We were worried as well, because – well – if you’re aggressive and hard, but you suck, then the video becomes embarrassing.

B.A.P. were able to overcome most of the rookie group pitfalls. They were exceptionally strong and confident for a debut song. And, like we mentioned in our review, we really don’t like it when people suck at rapping. B.A.P. fortunately don’t suck at rapping. Bang Yong Gook and Zelo are both really good at rapping, and both have distinctly definitive styles: while Bang Yong Gook is very grimy, Zelo is skippy and playful.

Sure, we did have some complaints. We’re not especially fond of the name. We’re partial to words or phrases more than confusing acronyms. Also, not really sure about the whole electro bunny thing. Really reminds us too much of Deadmau5, especially since it’s acting like a DJ as well. But, these are just small complaints from an otherwise grab song and video. While we’re not gonna say that we’re totally biased towards everything B.A.P. do from now on, we can say that we’re quite happy with this song and video, and hope that they can keep it up!

P.S. Top did not text message us during our video, just in case you were wondering. How could he? We were in the middle of filming! He couldn’t know what we were saying as we were saying it! Now, though, that’s he’s seen the video, he’s surely gonna call. Top: I know you’re reading this. Don’t get too upset! It was just a joke!

Also, I know you’re dying to have our B.A.P. remix (aka BIBIMB.A.P.) on your iPod. We uploaded it! Check it out here:

Otherwise, on to the giveaway!

    Well, obvious enough, I do not want them to be a cutesy flower boy group. I want them to be more of the sleek and make-the-girls-faint kind of guy group.  They can be bad boy-ish or chic gentleman. They’ll be more on the RnB or hip-hop kind of song genre though.

    They will be the HOTTEST.
    Their songs will be EVERLASTING.

    They’re bringing it in level ASIAN.
    They’re coming as a TROOP.

    And they’re gonna turn up the HEAT.

    Because I’m going to follow the KPop trend of crazy Acronyms. And don’t we all want to be at the top forever? Or be beautiful, or full of power? And…Melodists..I dunno, I didn’t want to use the word “Musician” so I got creative.

    I think that W.A.R would a awesome name for a kpop boy band..XD

  14. I came up with a new acronym for B.A.P
    Bump
    And
    Punch
    Not only because B.A.P is a rookie group with rebel, aggressive kind of feeling, but also because I thought B.A.P should be able to bump into any obstacles they face and fight over it and be on top on some stage soon :).

    It will be so perfect for a group! OMG! This will sound so cool! Superior to other groups and when they will greet they will say like: Hi, We have S.W.A.G.! or something like that…
    it will be just too cool for a name!

    i would call them FEP b/c their dancing is so strong and in sync, yong guk & zelo’s rap is so solid and attractive, and their singing is really good and luring that they are a perfect group! they just entered the industry and they already sold out of 1 million albums which is extremely impressive. They are bound to last for a long time so… F.E.P!

  20. D.G.M.D= dangsin-ui 
    G= gimchileul 
    M= meogneun
    which means eat your kimchi in korean :)
    If I had a boy band D.G.M. would be a perfect acronym! Who wouldn’t love a name in honor of “eat your kimchi!” Fighting<3

    youtube name: jphongsymay

    A.I.M

    They would be called this because they would be all aiming high and stuff to become famous kpop star so they can wipe their sexy lips and roll down their sexy windows..

    And it would stand for Animal Indigo Magic.

    Only because I like Animals, my toenails are Indigo at the moment, and it would take Magic to make such a group famous.

    The group has a quantity of 8 members, that is because the number 8 is like an infinity sign.
    Yeong-Wonhi is also know as Forever, as their fan name is Hamkke if you put them together it will makes ‘Forever Together’ that name also has a meaning; even if their alwa

  24. Since B.A.P means rice, I decided mine to be G.U.K. G.U.K means soup and most people in Korea have rice + side dishes + and soup!!! Pretty meaningful is behind it as well.

    QBD= Quiet But Deadly 

    Sounds wrong which is funny but I chose this acronym because I’m quiet most of the times but when KPOP is mention I can be a little too crazy at times which can be scary…

  28. Sarah Hemetsberger

    When Martina said FAP was German, i suddenly wondered what word that would be cause I’m a native speaker and never heard of it x)

  29. Patrick Hryshko

    Definitely think the end 3:21-3:50 provides a good contrast to the rest of the song. Makes the ending seem stronger and bigger!

  30. My youtube usename is : proval21
    I would definitely choose Awesome Dope Band ADB! it definitely spell out the the whole boy band name!

  31. I would choose MBLAQ for the better acronym since the words actually do match smoothly into a sentence instead of making up from three words…. Still if there’s a UKISS acronym i would still choose UKISS… UKISS does means Ubiquitous Korean International (Idol) Super Star anyway

    Playing on the whole Mayan “The world is doomed in 2012″ alongside the propaganda poster of “Keep Calm and Carry On.” The poster is very trendy right now AND practically everyone has heard about the 2012 doomsday idea :D

    2012 Believer or Non-believer, who wouldn’t want a boy band that reassures you everything will be fine? After 2012 has passed, they’ll release a song about surviving into the future. It’ll rocket to the top of the charts.
