Boyfriend – Janus: Kpop Music Monday

You’re not a batgirl! You’re not a catgirl! You’re not a fatgirl! You’re not a…good rhymer. Umm. Ok, so we’ve been singing Boyfriend’s “Janus” – just the chorus, really – and mangling it all week to suit our conversation’s needs. If you haven’t seen the video yet, check it out here:

Woohoo! Our first time talking about Boyfriend for a Kpop Music Monday! See: we talk about other bands, too: not just the most popular ones! To be honest, we were surprised that Boyfriend won this week. It was a close battle with B1A4, who usually destroy everyone on the KpopCharts, but I think Boyfriend posting our KpopChart update on their Facebook page helped a lot. Woot! I think B1A4 will definitely win next week. No? I’ve got no clue. All I know is that we’ve been dying to wear the BILASA Shirts for a Kpop Music Monday and haven’t had the chance to do so yet!

Well, now let’s talk about the elephant in the room: the nastiness of the lyrics. Like, whoa

Your small, trembling shoulders, your small lips
I’m sorry – you collapse before me
You swallow me up hotly

OOOOOH I put that in italic text to make it look sexiers! Anyhow, that’s the English translation. Here’s the Korean:

떨리던 작은 어깨가 그 작은 입술이
미안해 내 앞에서 주저 앉는 너
뜨겁던 나를 삼키고 니 눈물 훔치며

Now, our Korean isn’t good enough to detect the nuances, so we ask those of you who speak Korean: is this as nasty in Korean as it is in English? Please let us know! Also, if you’re not sure why the English is nasty, we refuse to explain it to you, SO DON’T ASK.

Otherwise, we weren’t fond of the video. It’s supposed to be symbolic and all, and to represent something something something which we talked about in our video, but we don’t like it when a movie or any work of art relies on symbolism alone. We like videos to be able to stand up on their own as interesting, and have symbolism supplement the meaning. If a video’s only symbolic, then it kinda fails, in our opinion. This video was all symbolism, and ignores the fact that Boyfriend SUCK AT BEING BOYFRIENDS. Whenever Martina’s cold, I offer her my jacket or sweater or anything. The girl in this video has exposed shoulders and it starts to snow, and Boyfriend doesn’t do anything to help her. Yeah. Not the most gentlemanly behaviour, if you ask me!

Last thing we wanted to mention that we didn’t talk about in the video: we Boyfriend’s fan group name: Bestfriends. It would have seemed sensible to call them Girlfriends, but what if Boyfriend has fans that are boys? That wouldn’t be very representative of those fans, right? So, I’m not sure if Boyfriend’s management considered this or not, but I think that it’s a great name for their fan group. So…yeah!

Anyhow, we’ll stop our rambling here now. We’re giving away a Boyfriend CD to celebrate a couple of things: 1) This is the first time we ever talked about Boyfriend for Music Monday, and 2) We just passed 250,000 subscribers on YouTube. Sweet! We’re dedicating this giveaway to you, YouTube subscribers! (P.S. Click this link if you aren’t subscribed to us on YouTube yet!)

So! To win this giveaway doesn’t require a creative answer at all! It just requires diligence. We put a whole bunch of Batgirls in our Music Monday. First YouTube subscriber to give us the right answer wins! And, no, you can’t leave a million comments with a million different numbers, you potential spamming cheaters, you! You can answer either here or on YouTube. If you answer here, please leave your YouTube name so we can make sure you’ve subscribed, of course!

Lastly, we’re announcing the winners of our Block B Interview Contest in the bloopers, here. So check em out!

  1. So I wasn’t going to comment since I’m over a year late to the show, but Simon’s Lemon Jelly cover just made my day.

    hahahaha 50 shades of kpop!!!! that was hilarious!!!! oohh that book must be so “ORIGINAL~” and a lot about “baby love crash”

  7. The third line is somewhat bizarre even in Korean, because of the use of the word “나”, which means ‘me’ as a person, so that “뜨겁던 나를 삼키고” really does mean swallowing (삼키고) burning/hot (뜨겁던) me/myself (나를), which makes little literary sense, all the while insinuating something nasty.. I think that it should have been 뜨겁던 “내 눈물” 삼키고, which would mean swallowing my (내) burning tears (눈물). This also fits with the next phrase 니 눈물 훔치며, which means wiping your tears.

    • I figured the male character in the song would swallow his pride/own ambitions (of wanting to stay with her) and leave her because that’s what is better for her (which is what’s reflected later in the chorus)
      As for the 니 눈물 훔치며, I wrote stole because he did, in a way, steal them since he was the cause of her crying in the first place. The meaning of the phrase would more be like “and made you cry” but I don’t think it would be wiping her tears.

  8. 17 batgirls I’m a huge fan of boyfriend, I even have a page for them on fb: 436 likes

  9. 18 Batgirls! (Though I’m pretty sure that you’ve already got the right number from someone else, so I only did it for fun.)

    I vote MBLAQ because Boyfriend’s was just silly. MBLAQ’s breakdown was…classier?

    I am really sad that Simon didn’t mentally traumatise all of us by doing the crotch rub. :( That’s one of the reasons I voted for this in the first place!

  11. EYK motivation – I had to do something I didn’t want to really do at work (being a coward and didn’t want to deal with it) so I bribed myself that once it was done I could watch this video, which made me man up and deal with it. Also, I secretly love mishearing lyrics in K pop songs (my all time favourite being Super Junior SPY…Bam bam bam baaam bam, “I got your linen from Norway”) so “You’re not a Bat Girl” has made my day!

  13. 21, that is if you count the bat girl at the end, or the one with “this bat girl” when announcing the question or the on the screen…. cross my fingers! I am already excited that i’m turning 12 on the 12th of Dec (a.k.a 12-12-12, 12yrs & 12th hours = 5 twelves!)

  20. Oh no… you are lost in translation! The core story of this song is
    farewell really. The guy in the story loves the girl and do not want to
    lose her but he had to let her go cause she was not happy or so.

    떨리던 작은 어깨가 그 작은 입술이

    her trembling shoulders and her small lips

    미안해 내 앞에서 주저 앉는 너

    I am sorry, she couldn’t stand in front of me.

    뜨겁던 나를 삼키고 니 눈물 훔치며

    I had to hide my burning anger, I swiped her tears.

    soooo…..this
    is my interpretation. her shoulders were trembling because she wanted
    to say good-bye, her lips were small because she couldn’t say aloud. she
    says ‘i am sorry’ and she could barely stand perhaps she cheated? or
    she was simply saying good-bye to him?

    The guy was actually upset
    and angry (perhaps she cheated?) but instead of expressing his true
    emotion, he decided to understand her and let her go.

    Well,
    psychoanalysts argues that we use sexual codes everyday so I won’t deny
    any underlying meanings behind the lyrics. however, even if it carries
    some underlying sexual codes somewhere, the quoted part of lyric itself
    does not have any direct expression. my interpretation is more consistent with the rest of the song and the title: Janus, the one who has two
    faces.

  34. I am their fan and enjoy their songs, but yes, I do admit they are a little to cutesy for me, but my niece on the other hand loves that. She thinks Youngmin with his blonde hair looks like an anime character.

    Janus, by far, is my most favorite song from them. I liked it instantly while their other songs takes me 2 or more listenings to like. I like how they used the twins to their advantage, with the two contrasting character/feelings. I get that a building can catch on fire, but what was up with that snow inside, I know it’s supposed to show that his heart is ‘cold’ now that she’s leaving, but eh.

    I was wondering what the red thing/bowl people were talking about so I went back to watch it and finally realized that it kept appearing and disappearing in the sink between the scenes haha.

    I counted 21 Batgirls, plus the one on the laptop screen and the one you drew on the female lead, so 23 total.

  39. So… nobody has mentioned Janus the Roman god of beginnings, transitions and transformation yet. That’s what I thought the multiple personalities of the MV was about.

    4 years ago
  40. I thought the contrasting scenes in the m/v had to do with the theme Janus – the two-faced god (I know that from watching Sherlock – awesome show.); with a ‘good’ scene contrasting with a ‘bad’ scene – the girl goes from innocent to dominating and evil – complete with a reverse wrist-grab towards the beginning (girl grabbing boy’s wrist).

    4 years ago
  41. Wow! I can’t believe I watched that the first time without seeing all the bat girl ninjas! XD she was everywhere…o3o Alright … Including the picture of the girlfriend with the mask on i counted 21 times I saw an appearance of bat girl. I’m a tad confused though..if that girl wasnt to be counted then 20 times! Sorry for the double answer xppp that was tough haha you guys did a really good job hiding her.:)) And my sissy vote goes to MBLAQ’s cry! As much as I love both groups i thought cry was more emotional..hence they did more real crying and tear swimming <3 thanks simon and martina! Youtube : ciellepuff

  49. I’m a bit confused by that last line because the first part is “You swallow my hot self” (which isn’t nasty at all, lol), but then the second part is “You(?) wipe away your tears”? Am I translating that correctly? Is it the girl who is doing both the swallowing and the wiping? Okay, now that sounds really wrong XD

    4 years ago
    • I am hoping the intent was in the sense that she consumes his heart or soul or something, and that he wasn’t good enough for her and let her go for her sake, hence the calm face, but inwardly is heart broken. Thats the meaning I got off of it at least. I thought the symbolism was accurate. They were happy, but something wasn’t right, he broke up with her for her sake, she leaves, he gives in to his pain of losing her once shes gone. The self sacrificial stuff. Maybe I am trying too hard cause I am a fan lol.

  50. I’m confused, are you suggesting a name for Boyfriend’s fanclub, or saying that they chose a good one?

  94. I counted 18 and didn’t include the girl in the video who you put a mask over cause she isn’t the right batgirl. It had to be the batgirl that you pointed an arrow to and said “this batgirl”.

  97. I’m totally voting Boyfriend for the MV Crying! Theirs was on theme – Janus (said Yanus btw) being the god of transition; it was showing how that small moment when one had support from his friends and the other was ridiculed was enough to change the future for that person. Basically they were both possible doorways for Janus to open as the character’s future. One possible future had him get back on his feet and the other had him spiral into depression; even though both of them lost the girl. It’s Janus’s job as a God to make those decisions; open gates and doors to new things, change the ending for something/someone, etc. That’s all Janus! Just thought that might be interesting to you since you said you didn’t get what was happening too well haha!! BUT YES ANYWAY that’s my vote! :D

  108. For the ministery of banishment:

    – get your drinks up = incitation to drink alcohol, which means that for them “drink” = “alcohol” (soft drinks don’t exist);

    – I got you under my skin = something naughty naughty, which can only mean that they think only about that. All the time.

    That’s why I also imagine MOGEF as a happy crew of alcoholic pervs.

    4 years ago
    • “Under my skin” is banned because it’s assumed to be a heroin/other injected drug reference, is my understanding.

      Unless that’s what you meant too, in which case carry on! XD

  109. lol guys their fans are bestfriends xD
    which kind of sucks because its like we’re friend-zoned before even knowing them ;-;

    and as a bestfriend, i congratulate you on a hilarious music monday that i’ve been waiting for FOREVER >:D

    4 years ago
    • :O I HAD THE SAME THOUGHT! They open in their little message videos with things like “We are Boyfriend! We are YOUR Boyfriend!” and I was like :D and then they picked the fan name “Best friend” and I was like ;_; friend-zoned by kpop group called Boyfriend= forever alone.

  110. Yay, finally Boyfriend got reviewed and I am very satisfied. ^^ I laughed so hard at several points (don’t want to list them cause I’m lazy) but… I have one tiny complaint: why you not talk about the dance? Anyways, great KMM!

    4 years ago
    • same here! i was looking forward to some comments on the dance too, especially since this is the first time Boyfriend has a dance that truly incorporates background dancers, not just people who seem to be for decoration behind a singer’s solo part…

  134. Had to watch the video twice cause the first time I was too busy trying to count the batgirls (which is strange cause I don’t even want the CD… guess it’s cause I’m so used to looking for random things in videos after “Crayon” and “Don’t Hate Me” that I just can’t help myself!).

    Love the 50 Shades of K… pop!

  135. If those are the lyrics hard to imagine it got past the Ministry of No Fun…perhaps they gave them a pass because no one will believe lyrics coming out of such flower boys as supposed to someone as sexy as Hyuna? Also in love with your hat Martina….did you by chance knit that…regardless I now have a new knitting project inspiration, so thank you!!!!
