B.A.P. – Warrior: Kpop Music Monday

January 31, 2012


Share Post

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!

Bap Giveaway Package

We've got some cool stuff to giveaway

First off, if you’re not following us on Twitter, come on now! You totally gotta do it. We post up cool pictures of stuff. It’s like Open the Happy, but with pictures. Anyhow, over the weekend we got to check out B.A.P.’s debut showcase. We got to go as press (woot!). Afterwards, we got a special interview that you won’t see anywhere else. Pretty cool, eh? All exclusive and stuff. We’ll post that later on this week once it’s all edited and approved.

Point is, while we were at the debut we got some awesome stuff, like their CD, iPhone case, glowstick, whistle, official debut booklet, and such. We’d like to give it to you! You want it, right? If so, here’s what you gotta do:

1) Subscribe to us on YouTube. DO IT!

2) If you had a Boy Band, what acronym would you use for their name, and why?

Most creative answer wins! You can leave your comments here, or in the comments to our YouTube video. If you’re going to leave your answer here, then leave your YouTube username as well. We gotta make sure you’re subscribed, after all!

Yeah! Best of luck everyone! We’re going WANKing tomorrow, so we’re not sure if we’ll be able to post the interview then or not. We’ll try to get it up ASAP :D

And, lastly, we’ve got Bloopers for this week as well! Check me out in the studio as I lay down some hot vocals for BibimB.A.P. and bust a freestyle at the end. WHUT WHUT!

  3. I’d say NSFW, standing for “New Stars of the Fierce World”. And maybe girl group MILFS (“Music Is Life’s Flower and Soul”, of course) will feature on their first mini album, given that they’re from the same agency, Misleading Entertainment.

    And for the contest:RAWMEN stands for Ready And Willing, Mostly Entertaining Noonas!  and fans can just be RAWs.  And it would also help if this band was composed of way-too-young, curly-ramen haired prepubescent boys. :)

  12. i would go for a girls group called SWAG (So We Are Girls)
    why? because all the girls would be fierce and really tomboys (like Amber) and they would have swag of course :D they would be able to do popping dance, rap like boys and stay classy and  sexy at the same time
    and it’s easy to keep in mind

  19. I’d call them “CHOCE”! Why? Because for one the word contains “choc” (which as u know is chocolate xD) that means that the group members are just so sweeeeet (/cute) as chocolate. Let’s say they’re eyecandy! And then there’s “choke”! I know right, why the heck choke??lol I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I usually either eat or drink something while watching teasers/ new MVs and I always, really ALWAYS choke on my drinks and/or food T_T (Fangirl thing I guess lol) FURTHERMORE I think the fusion of the words ‘choc’ and ‘choke’ really looks cool. So they’d be a boy group super cute, goodlooking members that have an unbelievably cool/ badass image *o* I’D SO CALL A GROUP LIKE THIS AND THEN DEBUT THEM. *Q*

  36. Okay, so I have to adress the mean-mean-meeaan comment on Yunho’s rap >.<
    I never actually considered his parts to be "rap" .-. I guess that's why I really didn't know who you were talking about until the captions XD But since I am in love with him, and genuinely so, I'll go teentop-fanish on you : "Y U SO MEAN?!" XD

    Anyways, I agree with Martina, the singing was perfectly fine .-. Cmon Simon. Seriously. It was fine. Cmon. *wink wink*

    Aaaand apart from that, I was totally digging the bunny until you showed there was an original mouse =.=
    I still prefer the bunny. Cause I like bunnies better than mice. (^o^)
