B2ST – Fiction: Kpop Music Mondays

Yes, our words are quite strong here. We don’t go out right and say stuff like this usually, but we’ll say it now: this is quite possibly the best kpop song of 2011. Sure, everyone has their different opinions, and many people will argue for different songs and videos. Our opinion is just an opinion, and this one may well be argued against. That’s fine, but it doesn’t change the fact that we’re so immensely impressed by this song that we’re willing to call it the best Kpop song of 2011 thus far.

We mentioned on Twitter that it sounds like Enrique Inglesias’ “Heartbeat”, but we didn’t say that as a plagiarism charge. The piano does sound similar, but B2ST’s piano chords instantly struck us. When we first heard it we thought “man, this is gonna be an awesome song.” And we were right. Really, such a great improvement from B2ST’s “Beautiful”, which – we think – really strayed from their image. Cutie boys being cutey and lovey dovey…nah. That didn’t seem right. Here, they’re not bombastic, and they’re not ninnies either. They find a comfortable balance between both sides with an awesome song. Well done.

That doesn’t make this our favorite video of the year, though. That honor still goes to Big Bang’s “Love Song”. We got really annoyed by the pen at the beginning. Sure, we know that they’re trying to show that he’s writing in a diary, but couldn’t they have done so with a quieter pen? God! That thing was LOUD! And we kinda get the whole disappearing into dust thingy at the end. He’s trying to rewrite his story with her, but then he realizes that she’s really gone or something, and it’s supposed to be sad. Sure. That didn’t stop us from thinking about vampires, and if there’s one thing about us that’s consistent thus far, is that we’ll make videos about the weirdest stuff that pops into our minds.

B2ST Fiction Video Still

Dear Kpop Video Girls: Plz cry more than one tear from now on

On a side note: what’s the deal with single-tear crying? We saw it in Park Bom’s “Don’t Cry”, and I’m sure we saw it elsewhere before. Why don’t we see some genuine, breakdown sobbing? This single-tear crying business is just getting odd now. Lip quivering, people! You need to quiver your lips when you cry! We get that they’re trying to show how they’re holding back emotion, but can’t stop their tears from squeaking out, but now it just seems like they’re being lazy. More tears! More passion!

Anyhow, good chance is that you’re here because of our giveaway contest. Here’s what you need to know:

One last note as well: this is the last Kpop Music Monday you’ll see in this setting. We moved the camera over for this episode to hide all of the boxes in our apartment. We’re starting our move on Wednesday! Huzzah! We found a new place, right here in Bucheon, right beside our current place, except it’s a lot bigger. With a full size kitchen! Wow! No oven, though. Pooh. Anyhow, we’ll be filming our WTF segment in this apartment tomorrow night, and then our TL;DR video for this week will actually be in our new apartment. Yay! We’ll post a video of our new place soon. We’ve got some other videos that we have to put out first :D

  13. The “Squeegee Dance”!!

    They look like they are sqeegeeing the slippery ice with they feet and then trying to crack the ice because their one true love is under the ice but she’s slipping away and they need to reach her! They put their hands in the pockets because their fists are clenched so tightly and they are crying so they need to restrain themselves slightly! They are doing this all to get “her” back but she continues to slip away.

  18. call the dance as slippery flooooorrrrrr! This song IS amazing, i was hooked once I heard the piano too. I think this song was also successful due to the pro film setting.

  21. the dance looks like infintes dance in come back again.
    As for the name: itS the dough Mixing dance (domi-DANCE) . They made a dough (using their feet* propably delicious) and made a cake of it. but as the girl was a vampire it was poisonous to her (*vampires can’t eat milkproducts because milk is the opposite of blood) . So she died. And her body (because the cake was very sandy) dissolved into sand. So the desert Junhyung stands in represents her , so she is everywhere or NOWHERE . err…yeah

  30. I would call it the S.I.M.S Dance – as in Sand-In-My-Shoes Dance – Junhyung followed the girl to the desert,right, and as far as I know – not that I’ve ever been in one – in the desert there’s a lot of sand and there’s very hot so if you wander in the desert for a long time, you will definitely end up with sand in your shoes and you will get really thirsty too – I believe this explains why they are staggering ….if I was in their shoes [haha, that was intentional… I’m lame, I know… *sadface*] all that F(R)2CTION would drive me crazy, thats a FACT [I’m even more lame right now…] … on a side note, it’s funny that ‘lame’ actually means not able to walk correctly, right,… it’s funny, right… o.O … ok, I think that this explains why I don’t have many friends…. ppl just don’t understand me… anyway… love you guys!!!

  35. I Think the new move should be called “foot steps” or “foot prints” because it looks like they’re trying to put their foot print on the dirt and it also fits in with the video when junhyung is walking ^^

  39.  This dance should be named, The Shifty
    Shuffle, not because B2ST are in any way shifty but because they are literally
    shifting and shuffling, either that or they are doing some kind of
    moonwalk-in-place. The shifty shuffle seems like an appropriate name that is
    both simple and catchy! And it’s a alliteration!! Can’t get better than that!! Yay!
    >_<
