Oh yea, it's released...
The boys are back with the MV of N.O, the single off of O, R U L8, 2?. BtS's first mini album was released today.
The video: No ab flaunting this time ladies but several close ups and enough camera/eye contact to make you squeal just as much. A little CG here and there proves that, in the words of J-Hope, they "Make money. Good money". The colors are lighter (white) which is a change from their debut darkness (mainly black). It's futuristic and dream-like.
The concept: Sticking to their guns, the boys yet again maintain their alliance to rebelling against society and staying true to what they want to do and who they want to be. They are in a school environment where they are expected to conform to authority and act like robots. That is, until Jungkook decides to raise all hell and fight against them with the rest of the team to follow. Thanks to the disobedient maknae, A fight breaks loose, some chairs and desks get thrown, walls crack, shit blows up...you know the usual. Guess they are just 2 Cool 4 Skool. (Yea, I did that on purpose.) The dance break was nothing but perfect as BTS skillfully performs their routine in unison.
The Song: Great hip hop feel and string ensemble. The breaks with V, Jin and even Jimin, singing ended up giving me chills. (Yes, I fangirl hard with BTS. What?!)
They seemed very confident in performing since they debuted. A few similarities from other videos arise. Choreography style is the same including Jimin's high-fly air time flip, and Suga "on-top" of other members yet again. He sat on V in No More Dream now he's just standing on members! Why Suga? Suga also raps with some high pitched accents in his rap like last time. I'm gonna stake all of this for the sake of consistency in style. <3
