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!

Bap Giveaway Package

We've got some cool stuff to giveaway

First off, if you’re not following us on Twitter, come on now! You totally gotta do it. We post up cool pictures of stuff. It’s like Open the Happy, but with pictures. Anyhow, over the weekend we got to check out B.A.P.’s debut showcase. We got to go as press (woot!). Afterwards, we got a special interview that you won’t see anywhere else. Pretty cool, eh? All exclusive and stuff. We’ll post that later on this week once it’s all edited and approved.

Point is, while we were at the debut we got some awesome stuff, like their CD, iPhone case, glowstick, whistle, official debut booklet, and such. We’d like to give it to you! You want it, right? If so, here’s what you gotta do:

1) Subscribe to us on YouTube. DO IT!

2) If you had a Boy Band, what acronym would you use for their name, and why?

Most creative answer wins! You can leave your comments here, or in the comments to our YouTube video. If you’re going to leave your answer here, then leave your YouTube username as well. We gotta make sure you’re subscribed, after all!

Yeah! Best of luck everyone! We’re going WANKing tomorrow, so we’re not sure if we’ll be able to post the interview then or not. We’ll try to get it up ASAP :D

And, lastly, we’ve got Bloopers for this week as well! Check me out in the studio as I lay down some hot vocals for BibimB.A.P. and bust a freestyle at the end. WHUT WHUT!

  8. I want a boy band named B.F.I–Brute Force & Ignorance. With the mechanized robot-like trained-ness of kpop groups, I think a group that bulls forward with the kind of guts and confidence found in the life philosophy of BFI would be a big plus. Our friends could call us Biffy. (my YT name is erisinia btw) 비에프아이 Fighting! !1

    This song isn’t to my taste, but the execution of it was aces. But I think everyone being blonde was kinda silly, and the hair+acronym was a mistake ’cause all I could think it stood for was “Blond Asian People”.

  11. I would name my band ENGLISH (English Not Good Listen It Super Hard). Because even, as a native speaker I too, struggle with the english language sometimes. 

    and I vote for BAP… I tried really hard to figure out it’s meaning and failed. From now on I will think of them as Bunnies Are Puffy because that makes perfect sense.

    i actually call them BAP too, not B.A.P. Because i thought they all had blond hair on purpose to all look like little small rice grains… So that they can all have rice head… No ?And then i thought B.A.P = Blond And Proud ?oh Kpop and their bands names…

    If I could create a boy band I’d call them BEAT [email protected]
    meaning: best ever awesome teens trying hard at taking over.

    The “a” in that would be @ because it looks fancy, and K-POP’s a sucker for fancy looking names. And all capitals because that’s the current fashion in K-POP names. Also, no O for over because lets just say “taking over” is one word and otherwise it wouldn’t look good. The name would have two meanings. The first obviously “beat that” as in “we’re the best and you can try beating us but haha, it’s never going to work”. This would also be the concept for their debut song, considering all rookies generally like to say they’re the best in their debut songs. It feels like tradition to debut with a song that has absolutely no meaning except for stating how good and dope the band is. The second meaning would of course be the full name of the name. Best ever awesome teens of course standing for how good they are and teens of course showing how they’re perfect new idol material for noona’s to devour. Trying hard at taking over… the fans? The  K-POP business? The world? The galaxy? This dimension? I don’t know man, the sky’s the limit. BEAT [email protected] GOING HARD YO! THEY GONNA TAKE OVER THE WORLD YO!

    I stopped making sense ages ago. Hope you enjoyed though. Also, do you know how hard it is in here to type @ without tagging anyone? DO YOU?

    I figure the harder the words is to understand the meaning the more focus you will be on trying to figure out “What the H~~l”. And as you know any publicity is good publicity. lol

  38. I love BAP…I’m a full up Noona fan. I’ve been posting their live debuts on Twitter and FB all weekend. I watched the showcase.  I follow all of them on Twitter.  I watch Ta Dah It’s BAP and BYG on Rulla Rulla. I’ve supported BYG since You’re Crazy and Zelo was all kinds of adorable in Never Give Up. 

    I only have one TINY concern come up once I saw the showcase. Triple S…knowing how that fandom is very…protective of SS501 these days the BAP color choice for the lightstick might be sticky.  Is that their official color?
