Infinite, keep it up. We only know three of your videos and you haven’t let us down yet. “Before the Dawn” was totally epic, and it’s a shame we didn’t get to review it. We finally got to review an Infinite video with “Nothing’s Over” a while ago, and we totally fell in love with the video. It wasn’t a serious badass video like BTD, but it still refused to fall into the lazy cheesy plotless fangirl video pattern. The video had a plot, had a really cool concept, and refused to degrade into a “look at me I’m so cute” kind of video. Awesome.

And then Infinite comes out with “Be Mine,” which shows that they’re not letting up at all. The song feels totally like an awesome anime action ass-kicking. Seriously! What a great song! And the video, although a wee bit confusing, doesn’t suck terribly. And that makes us happy. Seriously. Well done, Infinite!

Just…um, could someone come to a real explanation of the video for us? We know the lyrics are suggesting something about protection, that they’ll be there for you, they’ll protect you, so on and so forth, but…man, if that’s what the song’s about, then the video is kinda the totally opposite of protection. The MV begins with the female lead entering a taped off crime scene room where suspicious notes, pictures, and a 007-esque suit lay sprawled about indicating some secret hideout. Now this is already weird to begin with because usually a taped off room means a crime has already been committed so, either the police can predict the future, or she’s really stupid for returning to a crime scene. Suddenly a car crashes through the cement wall (okay) and bullets start flying from an invisible source. Of course, she starts screaming and crouches to the ground in terror (as the lyrics ironically blare about protecting her) as various Infinite members stand around looking sad.

Infinite Bad Defence

Here's the plan: you scream, and I'll just...stand here

If they’re supposed to be protecting her, they really seem to suck at it. Why is he standing back to back with her while she’s screaming her head off? And why is the other guy kneeling in front of her while she’s clearly terrified? Why not do something like, hey, flatten to the ground, and roll for cover. Standing and staring at a girl being shot at isn’t really in her best interest. Hey! If you’re as impervious to bullets as you seem to be, how about you stop that shooter from going nuts and shooting up the room so much?

We had a long winded theory that maybe they were all a part of the same mafia gang and Infinite was killed in that room, and so she re-visits the place only to be attacked by the same attackers *deep-breath-of-air* and they’re all hanging around as ghosts who feel sad to see that they ironically cannot protect her. Maybe they’re radiating an aura of protection that protects her from the bullets, but she’s unaware of this aura? I dunno. We prefer the vampire theory. Vampires aren’t afraid of your stupid bullets, angry gunman. Wait…who’s the gunman anyway? Why is the place getting shot up? And what’s up with those old movies that I’m sure the video producers didn’t get permission to use?

Romance Infinite Crime

Romance Infinite Crime

Just when we thought we figured it out, we saw “True Blood” in backwards letters on the other side of the wall that the car crashed through. In the crime scene, we see the front half of the car, while during Infinite’s dance sequences, we see the back of it. So…they are dancing around outside while a girl’s getting shot at inside? And why does the wall outside also say “Infinite Crime”? And something about Romance? Being shot at is not romantic. And last confusing point, where does the song title come into play? “BE MINE” = ?????

Oh hell, we’re too confused. Why are kpop videos so confusing? We’re used to the whole “wow that looks cool” premise in Kpop videos, but we’d just like to be able to follow along with the story of a kpop video now and not scratch our heads by the end of it.

On a side note: you know what the best thing about reviewing this video is? NOT GETTING ANY MORE VOTES FOR IT. Holy butterslaps! Infinite fans are really, really dedicated. This video got over 6000 votes in the past week alone via email. GADZOOKS! We don’t get those kinds of numbers unless Big Bang’s releasing a video. We’ve also been hearing from other people non-stop about Infinite. We spoke with some people this weekend and they said that they were at a Music Core performance, and when Infinite was on stage the fans lost their minds and screamed louder than every single fan group there that day. Not that we’re upset about all of the votes, or upset that their fans scream the loudest. We just didn’t know that Infinite were this big, and we’re also happy now that we’re gonna be able to finally have a less explodey inbox. That is, until the new Super Junior video comes out.

Anyhow, since this is an awesome song and album, make sure you pick up Infinite’s “Be Mine” album. It ships internationally. Woot woot!

    lol i was watching the bloopers and you siad thunder, there was thunder here and i thought you had jut put in sound effect till the bloopers ended kekekekeke :D

  2. i dont think there is any real danger going on i think someone she loved was killed and she is remembering it…

  3. I LOVE TWINKLE TWINKLE btw lol

  4. love this song to bits and pieces!!! and i’m so glad they got their first win
    in a music program with this song, they totally deserved it! <3
    oh and about the video, well, the song title is 'be mine' right?
    it's right there in the chorus, only it's in korean, but i'm sure you know that.
    the guy is asking the girl to be his, because she was in love with another guy, see?
    but she was hurting, and then they broke up, but she's still hurting, i wonder why.
    and this guy can see that, but he can only watch, and couldn't do anything about it,
    just like how he's watching her getting shot at, but just stand there helpless, not being able to do anything about it.
    so the song keeps saying 'be mine', because if the girl is with him, he would never hurt her,
    because he was always there for her, watching her, but i guess she didn't realise that.
    again, i wonder why. at least, that's what i understood from the song's translations.
    wow, talk about writing an essay. haha, sorry guys, it's just that, i thought you needed someone
    to explain the music video. i'm sure someone's already done that, i just can't resist. LOL.
    ookay, this will get longer, so i better stop here.

    This song gets a thumbs up in my book! Oh 90s synth pop where have you gone to!?
    Also, the video isn’t so confusing as much as their hilariously blank faces during the “video” scenes. I’m like, dude! Girl behind you just fainted! Why don’t you look concerned?

  16. chanti_636

    I love this song thanks for reviewing it and i actually didn’t found it confusing at all (well maby a little bit)  i mean i think they did protect her so this is my way of understanding the MV:

    their was this chase between infinite and some other gang
    (wich we didn’t get to see because thei are not important)
    but not just infinite was involved but also this girl ( who is stunning bautiful how come you didn’t mention that =) )
    they are driving in this car and get distracted by the bullets and drive into the wall by accident then the shooting continuous and everybody dies
    but oh what a miricale she survives and runs for her live
    and what we see is she maby some hours or days later when she returns to the

  20. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
