B.A.P. – Warrior: Kpop Music Monday

January 31, 2012


Share Post

B.A.P. is a rookie group that has debuted with one hell of a single. If you haven’t checked it out yet, watch the video here:

We’re really impressed by this song. As you may know, the whole cutie-boy image makes us gag, and new bands seem to fall back on that concept for safety’s sake. It works for different audience, but – since we’re older – it just doesn’t do it for us. We were surprised, then, to see that this song had such an aggressive concept going for it. We were worried as well, because – well – if you’re aggressive and hard, but you suck, then the video becomes embarrassing.

B.A.P. were able to overcome most of the rookie group pitfalls. They were exceptionally strong and confident for a debut song. And, like we mentioned in our review, we really don’t like it when people suck at rapping. B.A.P. fortunately don’t suck at rapping. Bang Yong Gook and Zelo are both really good at rapping, and both have distinctly definitive styles: while Bang Yong Gook is very grimy, Zelo is skippy and playful.

Sure, we did have some complaints. We’re not especially fond of the name. We’re partial to words or phrases more than confusing acronyms. Also, not really sure about the whole electro bunny thing. Really reminds us too much of Deadmau5, especially since it’s acting like a DJ as well. But, these are just small complaints from an otherwise grab song and video. While we’re not gonna say that we’re totally biased towards everything B.A.P. do from now on, we can say that we’re quite happy with this song and video, and hope that they can keep it up!

P.S. Top did not text message us during our video, just in case you were wondering. How could he? We were in the middle of filming! He couldn’t know what we were saying as we were saying it! Now, though, that’s he’s seen the video, he’s surely gonna call. Top: I know you’re reading this. Don’t get too upset! It was just a joke!

Also, I know you’re dying to have our B.A.P. remix (aka BIBIMB.A.P.) on your iPod. We uploaded it! Check it out here:

Otherwise, on to the giveaway!

    O- outstanding
    T- teens=
    R- (really
    A- assassins
    K- killing
    I- inferiors.)

    M- Martina’s
    A- addiction
    N- now.

    A- all

    Do I really need to explain? Well… I would have to say that the D.O.T.R.H.R.A.K.I part of the acronym basically sums up what I want for my boy band while they are CRUSHING all their opponents. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Plus, you two helped make the acronym, so why not have you two in the acronym itself (Martina will get addicted while Simon is their ruler. Simon will make the perfect DOTRHRAKI MAN WARRIOR LEADER). If my band was real, I would really hope that they can achieve rewards for all their hard work and effort.

    I would name my boyband HERO.ES which would stand for ‘HERO of Epic Sound’.

    Because it sounds pretty badass and they would of course be viewed as heroes in the KPOP industry for their amazing vocals and epic sound!
    And the members would have names/stage names with initals that match H.E.R.O.
    (For example, H. from Hwangmin, E from Eric, R from ROFL & O from Oolong.)

    (P.S Simon can call them Heroose when you guise review them for Music Mondays! 8D)

  12. Youtube user name – LitcheTheArsm

    Boy band acronym- SLOTH. Sexy Lady-like Original True Hommes.

    Lady-like is a typical kpop english fail, what it actually means is that they like girls.

    They’re a very macho group and the members are in their twenties. :)




    The international is in it because the group members are asians from different parts of the world.

  13. Youtube user name – PeaceBuggyX3

    My boy group acronym –
    STLEE (Shining their lighting eyes, everyday)

    Why would I name it STLEE?
    would name it STLEE because their eyes make up their profile image.
    Everyday, they use their sight to see everything such as their fans,
    family, friends, food, etc. Their sight also helps them use their
    talent abilities such as when they learn dances, learn lyrics, and many

  16. I had the same reaction as you did : “Wow, that’s an awesome debut !”. Seriously, these boys already have the swag, I’ll keep an eye on them… However, I decided to pretend your version is canon : Bunnies Are Puffy is a much better name, I’m so in love with it I can’t say the real name any more !As a Cassie, of course I would defend Yunho. ^^ But honestly, I recongnised Yunho’s rap at once, without need for your “subtle” hints… And well, that’s true in a way, and I won’t deny it : I found it funny ! I won’t complain, just voice my opinion. Iagree Yunho is not that kind of rapper, with fierce, violent flow and so… But I like that, because I think rap is sooo narrowly represented. I like that there are people like Yunho who do a totally different, and less “serious” kind of rap. Well, I like it, that’s it. But I understand that he’s a really weird rapper as compared to the standards…

    Thank you for letting us downland the Bibimpap song ! Haha, yet another pun that made me laugh so mad…

    I would call my boy band “P.O.O.P.”, which would stand for Playful Optimistic Overall Power XD And they would be singing, “We got da POOP, we got da POOP!”  And then their fan club would be named “T.O.I.L.E.T.”, which would stand for Take On Influence, Link Everyone Together, and they would always chant, “TOILET, TOILET, we love POOP, we love POOP!” Uhhhh….. XD I had fun with this >:D The meanings are really strong and are meant to unite everyone and keep everyone optimistic and supportive of each other, but yeah…. the acronyms say otherwise XD

    Idea 1: There
    could be a play on musical terms. For instance, a boy band named ‘Rhapsody’. Rhapsody
    is generally a piece of music free in form and inspiration, so this would be a
    great name for, say, a hip hop group where they are free style rappers, maybe. Their
    fans could be called Brios. Brio means fire, or energy, and their certainly is
    a lot of energy that goes into rap performances.


    Idea 2: ZBAM:
    Zany Boys Addicted to Music. Their fans could be called Mezzos. Mezzo is a musical
    term that means half, and what artist can function well without their other
    half, the fans?

    DNS; it stands for Dreams N’ Sacrifices
    Dreams because in order to achieve the goal of becoming a singer, you need to have a dream to become one.
    Sacrifices because you need to sacrifice in order to get. You maybe sacrificing your time, your freedom, your family or your friends but if it is something you really want to achieve then it’s a sacrifice you have to take.
    That’s why I want to name my boyband ‘DNS’
    Dreams N’ Sacrifice to symbolize all of the dreams they dreamed and all of the sacrifices they went through, and also for other people who have the same dreams. For them to represent others like them no matter if they went into business, acting, or waitressing.
