Big Bang – Fantastic Baby: Kpop Music Mondays

Wow! Fantastic Baby! If you haven’t heard Big Bang’s fantastic song yet, check it out here.

So, for starters, this is definitely the funnest song they’ve released since their comeback. Blue was serious and contemplative; Bad Boy was swag and head-noddy. Big Bang’s Fantastic Baby, on the other hand, is a song that’s really difficult to listen to while sitting down. It’s demands that you get up and act ridiculous, and has a pretty ridiculous video to go with it.

It’s not a perfect song though. We’ve got a tiny issue with it, that I’m sure some of you might actually not find issue with: while “Wow! Fantastic Baby!” is fun to say, it really breaks the song apart a bit. The song builds up fantastically, and reaches a fever pitch with Daesung’s banshee scream, all leading up to the chorus where everyone’s ready to lose their mind…and then the song stops for them to say “Wow! Fantastic Baby!” Some people like it when the music stops like that. I don’t like that feeling. Sorry! The rest of the song is stellar, and TOP’s “Boomshakalaka” is so well edited: the distance and effects or whatever kind of music-magic was made in post-production just make it sound so freaking commanding.

Too bad TOP isn’t as commanding in the video as he is in the song. You can’t tell me we’re the only ones who are thinking this. We make fun of TOP for not dancing in his other videos, like in Tonight, but it seems like TOP is getting more and more disinterested in being in music videos. Or is it the image he’s going for? Supposedly TOP’s interested in pursuing a career in acting: maybe acting lifeless is something he’s interested in? I don’t know. Maybe some of you are into him looking all distant and aloof and disinterested.

Well, even if we don’t like TOP’s acting, we still totally dig this song, and the song before it, and the song before that one as well. The whole album’s pretty damned cool. If you haven’t picked it up on iTunes yet, get it delivered to your house by clicking on the link below. Boom!

Big Bang

Also, we’ve got bloopers as always! Martina’s feather lips were quite difficult to put on, and resulted in some general awkwardness.

    ok, the random bursts of kpop in everyday life happen to me too!  At the airport my flight was delayed and the board said “Naughty weather” & I immediately thought “Because I naughty naughty” 

    Sorry, as soon as I saw Daesung in chains I immediately thought of Jaejoong…soooo TVXQ- MIROTIC FTW.  Though there are a ton of VIPs out there, hope the Cassies/Jaejoong fans can vote for TVXQ :)

  6. Awesome review you guys. The TOP anime idea is so epic! I would have loved seeing that! 
    I vote TVXQ’s Mirotic. BB is awesome, but Mirotic is a K-Pop classic.

    Baha, I love DBSK (original lineup), but BIGBANG owns me heart. Thus, I vote for BIGBANG, guise! This song makes me wanna shake it hard and.. stuff. I love TOP’S acting in this, I think the painting images dictates the fact that he’s slowly becoming a visual in the group with his model, and heavy focusing on his appearance. I remember a while back, TOP didn’t want to choose roles in films that made him out to be the “good-looking rich boy”. So maybe that’s related?

  24. In the live version in BIGSHOW and the stages he’s much more energetic than he does in the video. Heck, they all seem to have more energy. Just makes the stages amazing

  36. Oh.  And… Big Bang wins against Mirotic.  

    I talked to my friend about this and we decided that TOP is getting more self-conscious.  He has some screwed-up bottom teeth (known in my house and extended family as [last-name-here] teeth) and they keep doing closeups on his face… and so he’s just all, “uh, no, I’ll just never open my mouth again.”  He’s been going for a more aegyo image lately, and those teeth don’t match the aegyo image, and I think that makes him feel awkward.  (I love you anyway, TOP)

  37. YOU WANT ME TO CHOOSE BETWEEN TVXQ AND BIGBANG…..BIGBANG OMG IM SORRY TVXQ , BUT YES BIGBANG

  38. I vote Mirotic because it’s a pretty simple MV but it’s awesomeness is strictly derived by TVXQ’s sexiness and badass looks. Sorry BB, your MV seems too cluttered and ridiculous, like Lady Gaga on crack but with her clothes on, not off.

  39. I think the makeup for this video is a bit over the top. GD’s make up at the beginning I found is a bit creepy. The song was catchy but the video I felt was a little bit incoherent.
