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

  16. I think of it as the Penguin Waddle, because as you know, penguins keep their arms to their side(& BEAST’S arms are to the side…even if their hands are in the pockets) & it’s kinda like a waddle, like your just moving your feet side to side!

  18.  Both music videos are sad, and even sadder after reading their English translations (and learning from your guys’ interview with U-KISS that Dongho’s “girlfriend” died). However if I had to pick one, it would have to be U-KISS’ 0330 because their emotions as a whole group in the video, as well as the music itself, is more somber than B2ST’s Fiction.

  19. I personally think that the way they say “fiction” is fine. I’m a native speaker myself and I live in New Zealand and I think the way they say fiction sounds like the kiwi accent!!!! 5/5 if you ask me. At least they didn’t go and say it like “piction” like their PO (4)minute friends would have said it.

  26. Tired of your beautifully coiffed locks getting ruined by noogies in the morning?
    Then try the CarpetShuffleSHOCK DANCE!!
    you’ll soon be getting back your tormentors and your hair will never suffer again
    you’ll soon change from hopelessly mopey to powerfully energized with static friction!!
    as seen in B2st’s fiction and shock music videos

  30.  it should be called “kill the cockroach dance!” it looks like they are stepping on insects or something and making sure there dead, when they bow there heads and then the last leg move when they slide it they are wiping it off there shoes.
    ***Is walking and minding his/her business with hands in pockets and then “omg!!!!its a cockroach!!!!! time for the cockroach dance!!!!!!!! did i kill it???yes i did!time to wipe it off!”***

  35. I would call it the “Sly Shuffle”.
    As the dance and the look of the MV looks mysterious. And the main guy character seems to be evasive with his emotions.
    Or you could stylize it as the “S.L.Y. Shuffle” where sly stands for ‘Still Love/Loving You”. The lyrics of the song mention that the guy still loves the girl and that he can’t forget about her,
    he doesn’t believe there’s an end for them.

    And that’s why I’d call it that :)
