Trouble Maker – Now



Download from YesAsia
  1. TroubleMaker is the best ♥

  2. I agree with many people that this mv is a lot more mature than “Troublemaker.” Now that I think about it, there were some parts of “Troublemaker” that seemed a little childish in the mv, but all the same, both songs are amazing. I kind of wished they could have found a way to have made “Now” more mature, sexy without being too sexy, and still a great song over all. Like maybe Hyuna could’ve had a little more clothing on and it could be the kind of romance story that many K-poppers have come to know and love with a twist of sexiness. It’s not that it was hard to watch, but sometimes it can be a little weird watching two people jump at each other with their hands all over with more skin showing than normal. Either way, the mv is still great showing the more mature and sexy side of Troublemaker, but in the end, it’s not the mv that matters. Just enjoy the song and continue supporting your favorite idols :D

    so sad this song isnt in top 3 b4 closing vote few days b4….

  4. Damn i’m still stuck on that part….. with that big guy……… all over tiny hyuna……(⊙_⊙’)…….. huuuuuuge.

    Idk maybe its my mind, its weird place

  5. I really like “Troublemaker”, but
    I really dont like when Hyuna or other female singers use this BITCH concept, this radicaly.Because she looks like a hooker not like somebodys lover

    • I agree with what you said about going to Asian pop to avoid those themes in mainstream American pop. I like enjoying my music without having to watch disturbing music videos.

      • Sorry to post this here, but do you know whats wrong with the BAP voting page? All I get is a blank page, when I click on the link :/ But I can go to any other page one here. Will this be fixed soon?
        Thank you :)

  6. wae!!! miss a i love your song but WHY DID YOU BEAT TROUBLEMAKER??????!!!!!! okay im better now T______T

  7. i want to EYK review this!! >w< 9mil views!!!| *.*

  8. I also want EYK to review this, so they can redeem themselves for the harsh, harsh review on Troublemaker’s first single. I agreed with many of their points, but they were too harsh. Hopefully this time they will talk about Troublemaker’s talent, rather than the mess the company has made of Hyuna’s image.

  9. um when did this video hit 9mil views!?! congrats troublemaker for being amazing and on those wins so far!

  10. This truly is a very catchy song all in all! I like Hyuna and I like Hyunseung so why not to like this piece :D

  11. i hope simon and martina tal about this mv next monday !! :DD

  12. i love this mv!! more than troublemaker its cool~~! and i love this dance more than the dance in troublemaker

  13. I was kinda disappointed when I saw the live stage and found out that HyunA’s line said “Call my name, 내 이름”. When I first saw the MV I was hearing “겁많은 내 이름”, meaning “My cowardly name”… which is far more interesting than “Call my name, my name”.
    Ah well, I’m still sticking to what I heard the first time. Anyway, I love the MV and song; hope it gets reviewed!

  14. yanagiba yusuke22

    this song is perfectly to b review since it already has 2ver….mny thing u can talk abt…. plzz s&m….

  15. Sasha Phierce

    HYUNA I LOVE YOU.. but sorry:

    Since in korea the Alcohol, cigarettes, sex, etc is banned on videos, i think the video have this idea of “we want to show we are “troublemakers”.. so we break the rules, and show all that is not allowed to show”.. Besides, im sure that every KOREAN girl who like hyuna and MBLAQ it’s going to be like “OMG.. They touch each other”.. But for the foreign doesnt really mean anything because, at least in argentina that video have the same rated as a dinosaur Barney video…

    And sorry.. but yes… the video looks like “Love the way you lie” and “We found love” of Rihanna..

    Im really disappointed… HYUNAA!! I WAS EXPECTING MORE!!..something like a video with a story, something like cry cry of T-ARA but less long and boring.. uuugggghhh!!! Please make it better next time Troublemaker!!! :( -Snif snif-

    Well.. that’s what I think… any way.. I LOVED THE SONG VERY MUCH..

  16. Uncut video is much better. Please review that one instead if you’re going to do this song! :/

  17. …Wow
    This is a big improvement from “Troublemaker”.
    Nuff said..

  18. yanagiba yusuke22

    simon…u wanna review hyuna mv rite? its already on top 3… take this chance coz jaejong n u kiss can handle top 3 spot as long as u can… mayb u can remake this mv just like u do ‘gentleman’ mv long time ago??

  19. yanagiba yusuke22

    this song cant beat the power of jyj n u kiss nasties voting….

  20. i love this song!! and the mv is other new level i liked troublemaker too but this song is attractive and the dancing is more complex

  21. I became sad when watching this video. I hated the scenes in the trailer. They put me back to some unpleasant places in my past. I’ve woken up hung over/cracked out the morning after. I was so depressed during that time. I think they did pretty good acting. Their faces are what I imagine mine to look like. Just sad and empty. This video is not something that I would watch recreationally.

  22. we can’t make it to this weeks Music mondays, why?:( I wanted the review so bad.. maybe we should ask for votes on youtube?

  23. 3 million views and “all kill” status in less than 24 hours is impressive. Two reasons why this is so successful, the first is obviously the previous Trouble Maker track from 2011 and two I think there is a pent up demand in Korea for such a racy concept. I suspect the other entertainment companies are following this effort closely. It will be interesting to see if any other company has the intestinal fortitude to try something similar within their stable of artists. I don’t foresee SM or YG trying this, as there is too little reward for such a risk given their stable environments and predictable revenue streams, but I think we will see it again from one of the smaller companies.

  24. Wow, this is so good!
    I am disappointed with all the people saying its a copy of ‘We found love’. In a way, I see what they’re saying, but videos about a dysfunctional couple who drink a lot, smoke, cheat, and generally focus on lust rather than actual companionship, are bound to have similar scenes. Looking back at We found love, I get a very different vibe from Now. WFL seems to be more from the woman’s point of view, but Now is from both their perspectives, if not more on the guy’s part. I also LOVE the Joker scene, so well done, and it shows the confliction so well! :D

  25. Hyuna and Hyunseung are good actors in here, but sometimes Hyunseung has this angry face on him that makes me think that he doesn’t like to be shirtless all the time

  26. I was really looking forward to this duo. The song is catchy and the lyrics are nicely written. The part where huyna says “call my name nareum” was really well thought out.

  27. Asela Cheung

    The Joker scene is my favorite part of the MV! :D

  28. I like Troublemaker and I hope that Simon and Martina will review it. ^_^

  29. This song is very lovely it has more depth into it, also the video is not tacky for once, it actually shows that is this kind of love in the world.

  30. AfizaFarhanaPija

    Hopes Simon and Martna will review this on this Monday… This video so much to talk about! <3

  31. This song is amazing. When I first heard it, I didn’t see the video, but I absolutely loved it. Now that I’ve seen the MV, I love it even more. This video compliments the song perfectly I feel. The song and MV are both smooth and upbeat. Who wouldn’t head-bob or hum along to a song like this?

  32. Jackie

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much making out in a kpop MV before!

  33. Tam

    Doesn’t a comment equal a point?

  34. Tam

    <3 <3 <3 I just love the song so much. SO, SO, SOOOOOOOOO MUCH. :D

  35. i love the song and MV

  36. sorry if this has been asked here before, but what do you think about the accusations of plagiarizing Rihanna’s we found love? I saw her song after this one, and though it does have similarities, I just like this one better. Then again, I’m biased :)

  37. I have just one word to describe this: Perfect :X:X

  38. let’s vote!! :D i love this song and I have been looking forward to this comeback for so long! and the video did not dissapoint I love it!

  39. I’m not really a fan of Hyuna, I didn’t like the last Trooublemaker video (the song was cool though) and most of the times the ‘sexiness’ in her image is laughable for me, nothing else.

    With that said I really love this video. The song is good too, Hyuna’s part a little bit strange but Hyunseung’s were quite pretty. But the video is so much more!
    It’s not about having sex or smoking or partying or being irrestible. It’s about intimacy and a relationship. A kinca cliche one I must admit, but I love ‘trashy romance’ kind of love so I don’t have a problem with that. I really relate it to Gain’s Bloom – another MV about intimacy, not about being sexy. It’s based on entiraly diffrent things than let’s say Bubble pop. All in all: I can feel something wathing it.
    I don’t understand how it’s ‘pushing it’, I don’t see it as sexy at all. Well maybe except Hyuna in that hall, a scene that could have been cut perfectly. but oh well ^^^. Other than that it’s totally ok!

    Great MV, hopes from a Shawol for it to be reviewed ^^^

  40. I love this!
    When I saw the teaser photos and learned that this would be a 19+ video, I was really worried that it would go overboard with the sexuality; Hyuna really does not need any more bad publicity. But this was just really perfect. It wasn’t sexuality for the sake of being sexual, there was an actual purpose to the sexuality. It depicted sexuality as a form of escapism almost, and it was really effective. The song matched the video so well and what an awesome song it is.
    My favorite part was when Hyuna was against the wall rapping her “ney rum ney rum” part. She looked gorgeous and it was so powerful. And Hyunseung’s voice is honey.
    I really, really loved it, and I’m sure Simon and Martina will have nicer things to say about this then they did with the debut. I wish this is reviewed! Vote, vote, vote!

  41. dang it! it was number 2 yesterday now it’s number 4 :( why! this video was really well done

  42. Simon, we know how nasty you are… Too bad that NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR THIS. Argh…! I am angry. There will be no nasty to reenact from Jaejoong’s MV. Not that I hate him. I just want some oooh you so nastay… But if you two decided to be purists by acting out everything, and by that I meant EVERY TONGUE, Imma puke.
    I just love Hyuna’s look in this MV. The red lips that were dark enough to be classy instead of hoochie mama. The eyes. The messy chic blonde bob. Her outfits. Like it is edgy but not emo. Sigh. She is so hot.

  43. I love the video and the song. My only fear is that Simon will try to do a dance to it like he did with bubble pop.

  44. Tam

    THE SONG IS SO AWESOME. The video is very interesting…and I feel like it would be K-pop Music Monday gooold. xD I really really hope you guys will review!

  45. Kačí Kys

    The song is great, the MV is brilliant, there is only one thing that bugs me. All the product placement…

  46. like the effort but i hate those lingerie, i mean just find a clothes that doesn’t look like lingerie

  47. EYK is probably gonna reenact some naaaastyyyy parts if they review this haha ^^
    …oh no what if I lose motivation in voting for Trouble Maker now O_o

  48. Yay! It is at number 2 now!! Anyway, although the MV is a blatant twin of /ehem/ another video, I like their twist on it though.
    I think Hyun Seung did a great job here. I immediately understood what the lyrics are supposed to convey despite not understanding more than five words of Korean. He is supposed to be the passive lover, right? He WON’T be expressive of his feelings. But we can see he truly is enamoured with Hyuna. And Hyuna too. Wow. Her ‘how ironic’ smile truly blew me away. She probably tells herself that she hates him, but she knows it isn’t true. And the hollow look in her eyes, like the relationship has really drained her. And none of the scenes were crass or untasteful to me. Sure, I won’t be watching it in front of my family hehe, but I am spreading the word to all my friends.

  49. I really like it ^^
    Love TM ^^

  50. This was really a fresh concept for kpop, because they actually took some kind of effort into making the MV. Although the video was a bit jumpy in places, there were some really nice moments. I especially loved the part when Hyunseung is in the bathroom mirror and he switches between the Joker and himself. The song itself is SO GOOD; I honestly believe this is 10x better than the debut song. SIMON AND MARTINA, REVIEW THIS PLEASEE.

  51. i really dig this song! the way it was filmed was perfect. i enjoyed the 80s feel some of hyuna’s clothes were having too

  52. I love the song!! It’s really good ^^ And the video is nice too O.O They are showing some great acting and the “Bonnie and Clyde” feel is so cool ^^

  53. Did anyone else not get the car scence at the end?

  54. I hope they review this song next week. I know people are like 50-50 with this song but after working with substance abusers for 2 1/2 years now….this seems like child’s play but still hot ^_^

  55. I actually really love this song, and the video is quite good too. I didn’t expect that, I figured it would just be a sexual video with no emotional context, hehe. But seriously, kids learn this lesson from this video, drugs and alcohol are so bad for you! Especially cheap ass tasting budweiser. *just sayin* ;)

  56. Troublemaker is a more of a catchy song and the ‘whistling’ bit. However I love “Now” coz there is more emotion in the mv and the song. Troublemaker is just saying ‘we are sexy and look at my butt’ but ‘Now is actually’ telling a story. And the mv is so much better than the other mvs which are just groups dancing in a box setting with weird crops even *cough *cough *thesmbox *cough, and the KISS BEFORE THE FIRE…. Are they getting real lmfao….

  57. The song isn’t bad, but I find the video ridiculous. It’s very overly sexaulized and why are they dancing while being circled by race cars? Anyone?

    • you can find one of the theory behind

      “The encyrclying, overheming them cars symbolize that they can’t end they toxic relationship even if they wanted. If one tries to leave they’ll just get hurt so they stick together. As the title says ‘there is no tomorrow’, it’s just this moment and they sick love which will never end”

    • I heard that this was about Bonnie and Clyde, and Bonnie and Clyde have to die, right?
      So Cube wanted to find a way to kill them, and so they went with the race cars because they look cool.
      I think that’s why they used race cars. More for aesthetic purposes then legitimate symbolic purposes. :)

      • i heard that the cars represented the police catching bonnie and clyde. but i don’t know!

        • Yeah, that makes sense. I think it would have made a lot more sense if they used police cars and not race cars though idk

        • yeah, that would make a little more sense haha buy hey, overall the video was good right?

        • Of course it was.
          No seriously, it was a powerful video to go with a powerful song~ :)

        • The same motive was in Tablo ‘Tomorrow’ music video and I heard it symbolize the way he feels, a stan in which his soul is. So it’s It’s repeating circle of pain and danger in their relationship.

          But everyone have their own way of interpretating so every interpretation is correct

  58. I saw the recent music Monday and they had the pic of them. Will they review it? I hope so because it has a nice story line in it that describes a crazy love and why Budweiser is the best beer out there!

  59. I really like both the video and the song, ok the circling cars were a bit out of place, product placement for, what was it? Honda? but that’s a song I wouldn’t be embarrassed to play for my non-kpop friends

  60. Just wanted to share my interpretation of the cars at the end of the music video

    The encyrclying, overheming them cars symbolize that they can’t end they toxic relationship even if they wanted. If one tries to leave they’ll just get hurt so they stick together. As the title says ‘there is no tomorrow’, it’s just this moment and they sick love which will never end

  61. For such a high view count, the upvotes are suprisingly low lol. Do they watch it but are too afraid of acknowledging that they like it? Or is it just plain curiosity.

  62. I like this song better and the MV even more because it describes this duo as something mature and not childish or dumb, is like they are showing that love is different from everyone else.

  63. Cool video and i loved the chemistry between these two! :D

  64. hapagirl

    Can someone get me a cigarette? After watching this, I feel like I need one.

    I haven’t heard any of Trouble Maker’s songs before, I don’t know either of them that well besides some of Hyuna’s songs. However this is definitely one a song that I gravitated to instantly. This year, I usually have to listen to a lot of songs multiple times to really get into this. I think it’s also because there’s so many songs that have been using House music that I’m almost sick of it.
    I like that this is gritty and sexual, there’s no way other way to have done this video. These two got some connection going on which I’m happy about, I’m tired of those couples that they show who are kinda awkward and you can tell they just met an hour before shooting. And that kiss, I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen two people kissing in kpop or in the media, oh wait there was Key. With the whole Joker scheme, they could have just had her dressed up as Harley cause these two have a toxic relationship.
    I personally didn’t care for the dancing because it kinda felt a bit out of place. I did like it, but usually with plot based videos I don’t like what I consider filler. Personally it could have just been them fighting, throwing money at white girls, dancing with black men, making the sex, throwing up, ripping each others shirts off, and promoting beer

  65. Come on Simon and Martina I know you want to review this. <3 And one million views (if I saw right) already! (okay so twenty of them are just from me)

  66. Simon will be so torn about reviewing this… There is Hyuna, but there is vomiting… I guess Martina will have to do the KMM while Simon throws up (and Mr Brohoho sells Joker make-up and accessories in their kitchen)

  67. Ah, I’m happy they’re back. I liked troublemaker a lot :) This song though is not completely doing it for me. The song itself is fine, but to me it seems like the sexyness in the video is so forced. Hyunseung is my favourite in Beast, but having him seen in interviews and their shows, I just can’t see him like this. :D It’s not that I think he isn’t sexy, he is, but I think this isn’t his kind of sexy. If that makes any sense. Let’s see if this gets reviewed and what Simon and Martina have to say about it. :)

  68. :0 I am so astounded that there was actually a story told in this MV. Albeit a huge fan of the duo, I never expected them to actually sell music with depth. Which is totally fine by me, as not everything has to be some indie slice-of-life thing, not that there is anything wrong with that. Okay, Imma watch this MV ten more times ahaha. Let’s just hope I don’t drop to the floor or something, this MV having made me sleep for three hours only.

    And where are the upvotes?? This is some awesome shiz~!!

  69. I love this song! lol I love so many songs I’m getting very repetitive :P I prefer this song over “Troublemaker” ^^
    I’m happy to see they have a roughly equal amount of parts! In their debut Hyunseung sang most of the song… or is it just me? I need to listen to it again :/ but yeah their comeback is awesome <3 and oh I'm loving the storyline~ *0* Hyunseung turning into the joker was pretty cool too.
    I can't wait to see the full dance on their comeback stage!!!

    • I’m not much of a BEAST fan, but after this video I’ll be able to pick Hyunseung’s voice. It is quite lovely. Hyuna’s voice along with his make a nice duet.

  70. This is a solid song. I really wouldn’t mind turning on the radio and hearing this playing over and over.

  71. lady_kire

    I love this song and mv right now. It is still sexy while at the same time, classy.

    I actually dislike Hyuna songs and mvs normally because I find them a big “look at my boobs and butt” (not being mean to any of her fans, just speaking my mind.). Also, sometimes it’s too autotuned. This one is still sexy, but it’s not in your face sexy. It’s more kissing and dancing to the salsa(I think it’s the salsa…can someone clearify this?) Normally with Hyuna mvs it’s usually an objectification of her and it really pisses me off. She probably does have talent and an amazing voice, but it’s being misused to show off her butt and boobs and its over autotuned.

    Also, the first song Troublemaker realeased, it was decent, but it kinda was still a little “look at Hyuna’s butt.” I didn’t really like that song too much. This one, it’s way less autotune, and Hyunseung’s voice is so beautiful. When him and Hyuna sing, it’s like those really old 90′s (?) duets Western singers used to do before music became all sex and drugs. Again, the dancing in this mv, is so much classier. The last song Troublemaker did, was basically Hyuna rubbing her butt against Hyunseung. (sorry that’s all I remember…)

    I honestly don’t understand why they released idk how many teasers. When I saw them, I was like oh another objectification crap, but when I saw this mv it wasn’t as bad as the teasers made them out to be. (Whoever is in charge of releasing them, should get a lesson on how to do it with class.) Also, I’ve heard there is some hate with this song and I honestly don’t know why. Maybe it’s because of people who don’t like Hyuna, or she gets sexy with Hyunseung, or they don’t understand the mv, or people found it too sexy. Honestly, I’m not a fan of Hyuna, but I think this is one of the best works she’s done with Hyunseung. I honestly think she should do these duet ballads more.

    This song should get reviewed. It really shows how singers can still be sexy, but they can do it with class and style. Only problem is that Simon can’t really do any sexy dance moves or complain about Engrish since there isn’t any… Maybe him and Martina can salsa together…

    • Sophie

      Yeah I agree with the whole “look at Hyuna’s boobs and butt” thing. That’s why I don’t normally listen to her music but I really like Now. The MV wasn’t really my style but I love the color palette of it (If that makes sense… XD)

  72. Don’t you just love it when you get into a new kpop group and a week later they make a comeback?

  73. Love this MV! and can’t wait to see the full dance for it!! sooo catchy too!

  74. Feygarden

    Oh My! I have to say they came and put it all out there, literally. I was worried that only Hyuna would be overly objectified (as usual) but there is equal amount of objectification to go around. I’m not sold on the song yet, but I applaud the daring in this video to show idols as less than perfect and actually like real people…who you know….have sex in abandoned cars.

    But seriously K-pop come here we need to have a talk. Come a little closer. A little closer. Just a bit more……

    WTF is up with the obsession with the Joker and his make-up? Time for this trend to go away!

    • You stole the words right out of my mouth. I appreciate the less offensive camera angles. They both seem to be on the same level.
      I like the grungy, angsty mvs coming out these days.

      P.S. I wonder if budweiser paid Cube to do a commercial for them? lol Lots of product placement in this MV

      • Feygarden

        Yeah I saw that too. Notice how Hyunseung throws up after drinking a Heineken but is all cozy with his Bud? And Hyuna just loves to lay in front of her open fridge of Bud……..or as I call it beer flavored water.

  75. I really liked “Troublemaker” but somehow this song takes things to the next level, while still retaining a sound consistent with their debut release. As for the mv itself – maybe I watch too many French movies, I don’t know, but I didn’t find it to be inappropriate at all – in fact, I found it to be more tasteful than “Troublemaker” (the first single not the group) was, not that I really objected to anything in that mv, but “내일은 없어” feels more mature. The dancing is also better, as I wasn’t a super big fan of Hyuna’s dancing in “Troublemaker”. All-in-all, a very solid sophomore effort, as least from my perspective.

    • I find this video more tasteful than troublemaker as well. I don’t understand the hate some people are giving to it (not saying there is hate here, but in other sites).

      • Somehow Hyuna seems to bring out the worst in some people…which I find quite unfortunate. Sometimes the way she is portrayed in music videos can be a little one-dimensional, but I really think that this mv brings out one of her stronger performances.

      • Totally agree on this one being much more tasteful than Troublemaker. I posted this one to a friend’s wall on facebook, since I know she likes kpop, and she deleted it and sent me a message about how, as a Christian, it made her so uncomfortable she couldn’t last through more than the first twenty seconds. But she’s totally fine with Troublemaker. O_o

        • JenniferSakraida

          It could be that it offended her on for different reasons that didn’t quite hit her. I take a little offense, or rather it is a little depressing as an American, that they made a cliche off of the American “trailer trash” stereo type. It comes off that they are trying to not make it seem that Koreans are so reckless and sexy, trying to make it okay for a Korean duo to be put in the spotlight like that. Sex and drugs, could care less, cultural appropriation- a little irritating.

          That said I still hope Simon and Martina review this, I think it could be really funny.

        • lol, yeah. Degradation and ruin is brought on by American beer only. It just makes me roll my eyes.

    • This video is MUCH more inappropriate for their terrible choice in beer. And can I add that I am pretty sure Hyuna would be drinking a ‘light’ beer. Highly unrealistic.

    • I think it’s scandalous without being tacky. That’s really hard to pull off, but I really really enjoy it.

  76. Karla Top

    i love trouble maker!!

  77. MV: full of nasty goodness~ (they made trashy drunks look sexy.. i mean
    technically GD did in crooked too but lets focus on trouble marker right
    now.. ) …it’s weird that i’m sometimes a prude when it comes to MVs
    but this didn’t bother me too much.. maybe cause i half expected this
    and more (or i got primed by crooked)

    Album: totally out of the
    ball park! can’t believe the change i see in Hyuna (i mean i didn’t
    think she could sing or rap all that well before but she definitely
    changed my mind/improved a lot). It was so good there was absolutely
    nothing i didn’t like about it… that’s very rare coming from me
    especially as an initial reaction.

  78. Cannot wait to watch simon and martina reviewing this mv!!!! :D
