B.A.P. – Warrior: Kpop Music Monday

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!

    Supercalifragilistic.  I know it’s not the full word, but hey supercalifragilistic is already ridiculous as it sounds, adding in an expialidocious would probably confuse the crap out of those korean fangirls even more lol.

    At my university we actually have a Kpop dance group that I’m a part of and our name happens to be an acronym. “B.OK” It stands for Best Of Korea. It’s also a play on words since Bok is Korean for fortune. We also have a motto whenever one of our members is having a bad day or having trouble learning a dance move. “It’s Ok, B.OK” I think it would be a great Boy Band name in that there would be a lot of fun puns and have a uplifting message for fans and the band during tough times. 

    *I wanted to put my entry here as well as youtube since I think all of the youtube comments would drown out my entry >3<

  21. I vote for MBLAQ, cause they’re … well.. you know.
    Anyway, youtube: Safiercherismew

    My group would be called: C.L.A.T
    Why? Cellphones Likes (to be) Airborne Totally.
    It’s inspired by how my cellphone is so thin and light that I keep slipping it, the only way I can hold it without it slipping, is while I’m texting. I have told my friends many times, but it seems like the only way to get them to stop calling me and start texting in stead, is to create a famous Kpop group.

  22. Youtube username: lovesugarcandy  *goes hide in a corner becasue of it*
    B.A.B.Y stands for:
    B – Be
    A – All our
    B – Babies
    Y – Youtubers
    I got this idea becasue right now I am obsessed with calling everything my baby hahaha (like my laptop and things..well really my laptop is my baby LOL)
     
    Another one is M.B.T.C.E
    M – Men
    B – Born
    T – To
    C – Conquer the
    E – Earth
     
    Got it from watching Ta-dah B.A.P becasue their theme was aliens coming ot conquer the earth hehe.
     
    I really want the B.A.P. things~~~they are so close (to my computer screen) yet so far away for getting TT They are all the things that I was in love at first sight once I saw it. Anyways I won’t get it my acronyms are not the good

  23. I TOTALLY agree with you guys about their attitude that they showed in their debut… They also blew me away and made my jaw drop… I actually went through this awe several times as I repeatedly watched the mv just to realise,”WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST SEE???????”… And about Bang Yong Guk… No comments… All I’m gonna say is- a specific someone finally has a worthy competitor…

    And MBLAQ has the weirder acronym.
    Why?: Because the first two letters don’t make any grammatical sense… “Music Boys”…

    Answer:

    ST3R

    Strong
    Typhoon
    3
    Rebels

    Reason:

    It’s K-Pop, the acronyms are supposed to be ‘wtf’-ish and don’t make any sense but at the same time, tell people that the group is ~all that~.

    And I flipped through a dictionary for flattering words just like how i suspect these korean label companies do.

    This group probably won’t only have 3 members. Most likely more and they’ll have a rebel concept. Hopefully not something like U-KISS’ ‘Not Young’ though. Ugh.

    And the fans can be called MOON then they can make a whole space concept for their lightsticks. It’s going to be cool.

    Please let me win~ I need an iPhone cover! /smiley face/

  30. wow, i’m really impressed! the dance, the video, their styling, and of course, they’re super hot! (wish you hadn’t told me they were 16 though, cuz now i feel like a paedo…) could just be biased cuz i’m a sucker for asian boys with blond hair, but… i thought it was really good! i’ll be looking forward to more of their stuff!!

    and yeah, i’m with you on the weird Korean acronym band names… i guess you guys weren’t around during the reign of THE ORIGINAL k-pop boyband : H.O.T. …  i used to think it was pretty cool (and conceited) to have a band called “hot”, til i found out that wasn’t how you said it, and that it stood for “high-five of teenagers” oh yeah… beat that… aww man… now i’m all nostalgic about it… *goes off to google some old vids*

    speaking of which, wouldn’t it be fun if you guys did something on the history of k-pop and whatnot? you could dig up old videos and show people stuff they’ve never heard of… could be an idea! ^_-

    YouTube usename: joannamariesmile

    The boy group name I thought of is: “This is SPARTA.”
    SPARTA: Supreme PARadise of True Artists

    That was epic! :D but I know that the acronym did not make much sense. 

    Imagine an MC saying,” Ladies and Gentlemen, THIS IS SPARTA! ”
    haha.. and their debut song is called “This is madness”.
    This group could be confident and fierce like BAP or 2Ne1. It would really be epic plus an ancient greek-like scenarios in some music videos. :)
