1) B1A4 – Baby I’m Sorry

BILASAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAHHHH BILASSAAAA!

*ahem* Now that I got that out of my system

B1A4 aka BILASAAAA has returned to conquer not only your heart, not only your kitties, but also your favourite t-shirt collection! OH NOES!!! We’re pleased to see that BILASA is growing as a group and stepping away from their cutey boy image. I’m sure it’s not totally gone, it will probably make a comeback in maybe their next single, but for now let’s revel in their manly (slightly) manly glory. Although, the lead singer (I think he’s the lead) is still waaaaay too cutey boy and I feel like he just can’t pull off the serious in-pain look right now. Anyways, we’re hoping BILASA will make it onto Music Monday so we can talk more in depth about the terrible English one to five girl to guy ratio.

2) 2AM – I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me

Ohhh it’s a new depressing 2AM ballad but Martina actually likes it! Miracle! It’s hard to pick out why Martina likes one ballad and not the next, but I seem to have narrowed it down to lots of changes happening in the song, like a OOOHHHHH OHH OHHH moment or lots of warbling octaves. Whatever, she likes it! Amazing! The video is actually really well done with a rather creepy ending, but not that creepy when you realize it’s kind of imaginary and symbolic. Props to Jinwoon for his WOW, FANTASTIC ACTING. Did you read that in a Big Bang voice? I bet you did! If not, read it again. WOW! Fantastic acting! He was seriously believable and I think we might have a record breaking moment of not one, but two teardrops falling.

3) Nu’est – Face

WHOA. We were so distracted by the female member of this group pretending to be a boy. Seriously, after four years of living in Korea we are used to some men looking more feminine but WHOA. We actually think this might be a Korean drama playing out in reality. See, this guy has a twin sister and after his botched eyelid surgery, his sister took his place during the promotions, but soon they’ll do a switcheroo and put the guy back into the group. Maybe it’s the full bangs or the pouty pink lips or the soft face or the other members looking very manly but GAHHHHHHH totally distracted 1:42 seconds full shot. Besides the girl in the group (ok he’s not really a girl but he’s definitely the most girly looking guy we’ve ever seen), there are also some really high notes being hit at the beginning of the song that are very impresive. It’s not a terrible song, we don’t love it, but we do like the dubstep breakdown. We just wish the whole song could have had a dubstep feel. Also, the English. Oh, the English. On it’s own each sentence is fine, but put it together to form WHHHHaaaatttt??

“This is a story about a dwarf and giant. 
But it`s gonna end just like David and Goliath. Keep up with my pace, it you can, 
Don’t lag wile E.coyote cuz I’m road Runner, fast!”

What the fizzlesnaps is that?

4) 2BiC – I Made Another Girl Cry

This has one of the most confusing story lines we’ve ever seen in a kpop music video. It’s like they jammed everything typical of a Korea storyline into one moment: a new couple, an older couple, lost love, new love, sick and dying girlfriend from a disease, gangsters with poles and guns, the army, the police, a house cleaning, old pictures, a crying girlfriend, a crying boyfriend, a dead boyfriend, a dead girlfriend, oh and single tears. Seriously. All in one video? Oh at least no one got hit by car in SUPER SLOOOW MOTION!!! <--if you didn't sing that as EXO please go back and do it again. Add a ripito fipito as well. Anyways, I was so distracted by this video I could barely hear the song, but truthfully, it was the kind of ballad I don't like so I think I might have blocked it out. On the plus side, the singers have really unique voices that I thought were quite beautiful. Check out this video and see if you can find anymore cliches that I missed!

  1. I’ll be honest…

    I voted for EXO solely because of the absolutely hilarious “Shaking the Ants from their Pants” dance move…

  2. Ok, my internet is being frustrating and I can’t get the videos to load. Boo! (I’ll just have to try again tomorrow)

    So, this isn’t important or kpop related at all, but I felt the need to comment just because of the ad at the top of the page. It is an ad for the University of Cincinnati.. that’s where I go to school!!!!!!!!! I got so excited because normally the ads are like those basic text ones that look like they’re from a google search, and they usually relate to fasion or food or something of that sort. So I was totally shocked to see an ad for UC. LET’S GO BEARCATS!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I loved the 2Bic video. I was immediately excited that I recognized the two male actors, and the acting and the song were beautiful.  True, i wasn’t sure what was going on, but maybe if i understood korean, i could have gotten the idea from the lyrics.
    Nu’Est song, i totally love.  The guy that looks like a girl i had figured  looked like that because they seem to be talking about bulling, and he was representing someone that could be bullied for his looks. That’s what i thought, but who knows, maybe he just looks like that. 
    B1A4, I adore those boys. They haven’t dissapointed me with any of their songs yet.
    2AM, they just have beautiful voices, well done.

  6. I think he only looks girly because of the way his hair is styled and how they did his make up.

  7. I think every flower boy has the potential to look super girly — it’s all in they styling and make-up. In Ren’s case… Pledis really played up his flower boy-ness (feminine side more like it) to the extreme. I’m not really sure what they were going for. Even people in Korea are questioning whether he’s a boy or girl.

  8. There are some happy or non-tragic ballads in English, eg. Always on Your Side, You Raise Me Up, and I guess Sun Shi Kyung’s You Are My Spring could be considered a ballad – it’s not super happy, but not too sad either, I think.

  9. I was stupid enough to start eating a bagel in the middle of that 2BiC video. Y u no use less blood in video, 2Bic?  Y u no be bagel-eating-people-friendly, 2BiC? The Nu’Est song is very catchy, but the melody sounds familiar. Help, anyone?..

  10. I totally read those lines in Big Bang and EXO voices! And I have to agree with Simon, that guy from Nu’est is unbelievably feminine. I think his stylist watched Shut Up: Flower Boy Band and decided to copy Kim Ye Rim’s hairstyle.

  11. i agree with simon about the girly guy from NU’ EST

  12. to martina: when i saw jinwoon open the closet and the girl was in there i was holy shit he stuffed her and kept her in there! that was creepy but i still love 2AM <3

    to simon: when i first saw that guy with blond hair in NU'EST i was oh my god! they have a girl in the group!!! :D i was happy when you mentioned that!!

    4 years ago
  13. Coudn’t agree more. I would say that that blond guy from Nu’est is holding a record of being the girliest guy in Kpop. Sungjong from Infinite or Taemin from Shinee or Jang Geumsuk are wolverines compared to him lollllll

  15. O-M-G. That blonde guy in Nu’est is DEFINITELY the girliest guy I’ve ever seen. Simon’s not exaggerating. OMG. I still can’t get over it. I SWEAR HE’S A SHE.

  16. YAY! No Big Bang! Uhm what I mean is there was a lot of new videos to review this week. (Big Bang’s Alive is on infinite loop on my ipod, iphone, mac at home, mac at work, but especially in my head. But I digress).

    It’s so nice to see BILASA not being so cutesy and being allowed to expand musically. 2am can sing sad ballads to me any time, their voices are stunning. The effects were masterfully done, Jinwoon’s acting was wonderful (as is his perfectly round head, I never notice what a beautiful shape it was) and the girl in the closet…creepy. Nu’est song is very catchy, and I can’t help but compare the dubstep breakdown to U-Kiss’s dupstep breakdown in Forbidden Love, except (and I’m a huge U-Kiss fan) I think Nu’est has the dupstep moves down way better.  2Bic Martin and Simon say everything about this video best. I have one huge question seriously on my mind…who did the wife get a text from that she felt the need to hide the phone from her husband. I honestly think it was the mobsters.

  17. I’ve spent half of St. Patrick’s Day watching kdramas and listening to kpop.  Time for the Pogues and Dropkick Murphys.

  18. Nu’ests video: “that blonde haired dude with the long hair is the girliest looking korean guy i have ever seen in my entire life.” OMG. CANNOT AGREE MORE. i saw the teasers and i was like “…is that another taemin-esque guy? crap….” im not hating at all – i think face is really catchy – but wow. i feel like he makes a better girl than i do.

  19.  Also, the blond girly guy is Princess Ren, and he is awesome. :D

  23. So, lots of angst this week,, eh? 2Bic……umm, yeah wth? Maybe they made the video so dramatic because the song is….boring. (Not a huge fan of ballads either, except for the ripito fipito kind.)

  25. They must be trying really hard to make that guy look like a girl…I don’t know why you would ever put that hairstyle on a guy..lol I know they try to give each member a distinct hairstyle and what not but…why that style? I don’t get it haha

  32. i really want BILASAAAAAAAA to win, but EXO is stealing the show. I don’t know, I just like BILASAAAAAAAA to be reviewed first because SHINee’s like sure to pwn everyone next week. Anyways, this was one of your most funniest posts ever. And yes, I read those lines like BIGBANG and EXO.

    4 years ago
  33. Yep. Jinwoon having a girl in the cupboard was creepy e____e

    The english rap at the end of “Face” was about how the people being bullied will beat the bullies since the song is about bullies and small people = victims like David :P

  36. Hahaha, glad I’m not the only one who immediately thought of gender-bender dramas when I saw NU’EST’s MV. I was already imagining Hanakimi with NU’EST as the cast…

    I was gonna say something else, but screw it. That kid is just too cute. Cuter than me. WHAT THE HELL???!!! DID HE JUST DESTROY MY INTEGRITY AS A WOMAAAAN???!!!

    ….at least my breasts are bigger. Ahem.

  37. They say Mordney present in the Intro ( “NU, Establish, Style, Tempo” ) of the…mini album? so maybe all 3 songs were Mordney’s presents? *-*
    BTW: LOVE your videos, greetings from Hungary and have fun in Japan!

    • I’ve found out that Face was composed by Swedish songwriter Daniel Bergman, but I
      couldn’t find any information about Mordney. I find it quite interesting that although he
      produced some really good songs (SS501-Deja Vu, U-Kiss-Shut Up, Kahi-Come Back You Bad Person etc…) we barely know a thing about him. He is very suspicious, maybe he is indeed a vampire :D 
      It’s so good to see other fans from Hungary!
