MV BREAKDOWN:// BH: All I Want For Christmas

YG strong vocals Lee Hi and Park Bom join forces to form BH. Together they released a rendition of Mariah Carey's holiday hit, All I Want For Christmas (Is You). I am in love with Mariah's version.When I heard BH was forming, I have to admit I was slightly excited for a listen. I love Lee Hi and Park Bom has a beautiful voice, most of the time. The tempo of the song was slowed down a tad to make way for smooth riffs, melodic note extensions and just plan dragging it out to emphasize the great singers that they are. The song alone is quite lovely (some might say boring) but the video extends to level I would like to call "WTH, this is creepy."

The video starts off with a soft, white and pure feel. But then enters a horror-movie, substance leaking cabinet.

Why is she singing with her eyes closed. Is she dead?

Why is Park Bom just lying there with pill-like objects scattered on the floor? Is she dead?

Nope, she's alive. *Noms Dirty Floor Candies* And yet another horror movie reference, with a sheet-covered Lee Hi in the background.

Then there's an axe...(Lee Hi, what are you doing?)

You're scaring me now.

Park Bom drags a bag, on some creepy killer movie mode. (Fun Fact: This scene is similar to the one of the 2003 horror/thriller movie The Tale of Two Sisters where the step mom drags a bloody bag through the halls. BTW, Batzy recommends this movie.)

Here's an adorable little mouse getting his party grub on. He is so cute, he reminds me of my pet rat, Mr. Nibbles. (RIP, Mr. Nibbles *sobs*)

But then this happens:

Oh no, Mr Mouse?! (Was this really necessary. I hope the poor thing wasn't hurt in this video.)

There is also a cute scene with BH being playful and adorable,

but then creepiness fills the air again.

All in all, the song is well done but the video was definitely a nightmare before christmas. (See what I did there? :P)

First Impressions:// You Who Came From The Stars (Version Batzy)

Boy did the graphics suck in the beginning of the drama. WTF was that anyways. Talk about terrible. At least by the end of the episode they seemed to be a little better.

Now lets be serious. I only decided to watch the drama because of Kim Soo Hyun. I figured, hey! I should try and write a first impressions like Unnie. And then the shower scene happened and my brain turned to mush. So read Panda's version instead.

I hear he will be going to the military after this is done. -whimpers-

Boys Before Friends' Final Leading Lady

With the American version of Boys Over Flowers premiering on Viki December 26, it's about time they decided on a permanent leading lady. I'm so very relieved that they settled on Dawn Morrow, an experienced actress and dancer for the role.

Dawn Morrow cast as Zoey (Makino Tsukushi) in Boys Before Friends, the American remake of Boys Over Flowers.

Age:  27
Height:  5'2"
Weight:  108 lbs
Hometown:  Jacksonville, FL

According to IMDb, Dawn began dancing at age four, and acting at 13. She's had small or uncredited roles on shows like Unfabulous, Victorious and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The good news is that she does have talent in both acting and dancing, which gives me hope for Boys Before Friends.

First Impressions:// You Who Came From the Stars

You Who Came From the Stars aka My Love From Another Star poster.
Otherwise known as My Love From Another Star, this drama is about an alien who comes to Earth in the Joseon era, and has waited 400 years for the coming of a comet which will enable him to return home. Of course being that this is a rom com melo fantasy, love will inevitably get in the way of his plans

The first episode did a good job of introducing the characters, establishing their dynamics, and setting the scene. It was entertaining from the start, though the writing will have to be masterful in order for things to be believable from a relationship standpoint. I have high hopes since screenwriter Park Ji Eun has had a good track record, most recently winning the best screenwriter award for the highly rated You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly.

Project For Awesome 2013

I saw this video by Simon and Martina. They are asking people to share this video anywhere and everywhere in order to save the lives of North Korean people and bring awareness to Liberty In North Korea. In North Korea, freedoms are nearly nonexistent as the regime controls almost everything that people think and do. Internet is illegal; watching k-dramas can be punishable by death. Several people are placed in labor camps and even publicly executed in front of their friends and families just for doing simple things that we may enjoy and even take for granted. Appreciate the freedoms that we have here and help others gain theirs. Share this video, vote for their campaign and help make a difference. Educate and inform, not only yourself but others.

Thank you.

Review:// Marry Him If You Dare

Marry Him If You Dare aka Mi Rae's Choice poster
Marry Him If You Dare is about a 32 year old call center employee who gets approached by her 57 year old future self, trying to set her on the right path to happiness. And the way to do that, would be to marry a different man than the one she is soon to meet. Seems easy enough as long as something like fate doesn't get in the way.

With a triangle involving Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Dong Gun and Jung Young Hwa, and written by Hong Jin Ah of the award winning The King 2 Hearts, expectations were high.

Boys Before Friends Trailer

Wake me up when the nightmare is over...

I am sure Panda Unnie wanted to get her paws on this one but I just got linked to the trailer for Boys Before Friends. You know what that means...Batzy has to share the love and spread it to everyone else. Thanks to viki!

I think this trailer definitely shows what a train wreck this is. I liked the other adaptations and am considering that I might try to stomach this one but I make no promises. Some people have been saying the way the main actress delivers her lines seemed dull and unappealing. The way this trailer panned out, its hard to have hope for high standards on this adaptation. The story looks to be drowned in lack luster performance. I was on the bandwagon of being psyched about another BOF but my expectations are blown for this one. There really isn't much to say about it, I will let the video speak for itself. Besides, I am sure Panda will take it upon herself to rip this in her entries to come.

It just screams low budget awful. I have seen better shots from kids shooting Vine videos. I recall a time when the staff/cast responded to what was seen as "racist" comments from fans that are upset about this remake. These guys really should have taken the negative comments into consideration. Race was never the issue, screwing up a good thing is the problem here. Way to go.

Movie Review:// Commitment

Commitment stars Big Bang's T.O.P (Choi Seung Hyun) as Myung Hoon. Shortly after his father's death during an attempt to return home from a mission, Myung Hoon is dragged into a similar fate. He plays a young man who is forced to become a North Korean spy in South Korea in order to save his younger sister, Hye In (Kim You Jung). He goes under intensive training for about two years and begins his mission to bring back a package, which is later to be revealed as a bunch of diamonds, in exchange for his sister's freedom.

In South Korea, Myung Hoon is adopted by foster parents, who are also Unit 8 North Korean spies. They make their way posing in a local pharmacy while money laundering. While waiting for instructions from his handler, Moon Sang Chul (Jo Sung Ha), Myung Hoon takes on the alias of Dae Ho and is enrolled into high school. He then meets a girl named Hye In (Han Ye Ri), an aspiring dancer who is bullied at the school. Seeing as the girl with the same name as his younger sister was in trouble, he begins to befriend her and save her. (Because that's the type of stuff Oppas do.)

When things get complicated, Sang Chul personally comes to South Korea in a desperate attempt to retrieve the package. Things get heated in a final showdown between Myung Hoon, Sang Chul and Je-Moon (Cha Jung Min), the South Korean detective who has been managing cases of North Korean spies posing as deflectors and their murders.

This movie is a melodramatic/action film that's basis is revolving around a power struggle of two North Korean teams in South Korea, Unit 8, which Myung Hoon is a part of, and Sector 25. It takes place in 2009 and 2011, while Kim Jong Il was still in power.


Pup and I ran to the movies to see Commitment, mainly for two reasons:
  • She loves T.O.P.
  • I learned the hard way, that Korean movies leave the theaters in a blink of an eye.

In October, I was one of three people to win a contest held by Asian In New York via their Facebook page. I won tickets to see Yoo Ah In's Tough as Iron. I shortly received an email stating if I could pick up the tickets at their Long Island City office and was warned that Asian movies leave the theaters pretty quickly. I picked up the tickets, got sick, tried to go see the movie a few days later and BAM... you guessed it, it was no longer showing. Highly disappointed, I took this as a learning experience. The words of that email echoed in my mind for a while and I vowed to run to any theater playing an Asian movie that I highly wanted to see, at the drop of a dime. When I found out Commitment was opening on Friday, December 6th, we were on a mission to see it. I was determined to see it and write a review. Game face and all, we managed to see it at the 5PM showing the following day.

Now that the movie is set up for you and the events that lead to me writing this review have been clarified, here's what I felt about it. (I am trying not to add spoilers here, and yes, I will be as objective as possible.)

I saw Secret Greatly a while long ago, I knew what kind of feel this movie was going to give off, though Commitment barely had any humor in it. T.O.P gave a pretty good performance despite reviews of him only being able to display one-emotion/ facial expression throughout the whole movie. (Something I expected as it IS T.O.P...and it fit well.) Even though he is 26, he was not out of place as a high school student and did suit the role. (The age gap is reasonably common in Kdramas/movies. ie: Lee Min Ho in Heirs.)

There was a great attempt at showing his character's struggle of being a killer for the sake of saving his sister and the transitioning weight of still just being a kid. This was depicted in his expression and actions between the bad ass vibe he gave during an altercation and his regret and sorrowful demeanor after. He is known to be a stiff and not dance very well, which gave for a good show when his action scenes came on. The hand to hand combat scenes were fast paced and his stiff, swift and steady movements led to some pretty sweet action. The camera work during these scenes flowed very well with his actions, unlike the sloppy and unappealing angles shown in the beginning of the movie while his on screen dad fought. (Yuck.)

I like how the movie didn't wrap up all this action and drama with a sappy, romantic ending where they live happily ever after just for the sake of tying up loose ends. The plot seemed a bit shaky and but not too hard to follow as I sat in the theater trying to piece together why certain things were happening. That's just part of the fun in watching a movie. I did get hang of it all by the end so there's no real complaint here. The action was standard and invoked some audible cringes and gasps. I enjoyed it and vowed to be cautious fangirl when watching a movie about attractive men as North Korean spies, since the ending is well... Go see for yourself.

Special shout out and thank yous go to Asian In New York for the opportunities and events that help keep me to up-to-date and informed on what's going on in the Asian Community.

Recap:// Attention Please 2007 Special

Misaki visualizes herself in Hawaii.
Misaki has become a confident cabin attendant after much trial and tribulation. Now she'll start training for international flights with a trip to Hawaii! Being from Hawaii, I was especially interested to see what sights and cultural aspects they would include. It turned out to be a mixed bag; while they did a nice job in choosing beautiful scenery and landmarks, the cultural references fell a little flat.

POW:// Lee Jung Shin

There's something about the CNBLUE boys. I fell in love with Jung Yong Hwa while watching You're Beautiful, Kang Min Hyuk during You've Fallen For Me, noticed Lee Jong Hyun in A Gentleman's Dignity (sorry it wasn't love, maybe next time) and now my new bias and Point Of Weakness is Lee Jung Shin who really steals the show in My Daughter, Seo Young which I'm currently watching.

Lee Jung Shin looking fine in a dress shirt and short styled hair.

Lee Jung Shin
DOB: September 15, 1991
Birth Place: Seoul, Korea
Blood Type: A
Maknae Bassist, Rapper and Singer for CNBLUE
Model and Actor
He starred in 4minute's Heart to Heart MV
He and Min Hyuk do 99.9% of household chores in the dorms.
In early interviews he said all members shared chores equally.
The rumors of him being gay stemmed from the bob haircut he wore when he debuted.
At 187cm tall, it's hard for him to go unnoticed in a crowd.

Review:// Dil Bole Hadippa! (Heart Says Hurray!)

Close up of Rani Mukerji as Veera

Veera, Rohan and Veer with the film's logo.
This 2009 Bollywood film starring Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukerji has everything a gender bender loving fangirl could want. Confusion, hilarity, romance and beauty. Musicals are not my preference, but when the song and dance is done well, serves a purpose, and is entertaining, I can be won over. Dil Bole Hadippa definitely delivers.

Recap:// Attention Please Episode 11

Misaki has come a long way from her flighty rocker-chick days. She's finally found her dream, suffered through disappointment and failure, but still managed to stay on the same course until the end. What will this new love triangle dynamic do to her? We are soon to find out. I think I'm going to miss this bumbling idiot. I relate to her in many all too embarrassing ways, as I'm sure many others did seeing as how it received an average rating of 16.3%.

First Impressions:// Pretty Man

Pretty Man's hero is loosely based on the main character of Guy de Maupassant's 1885 novel, Bel Ami.
Eels everywhere are rejoicing as Sukkie's long awaited drama finally airs. Pretty Man, known by many names (but we'll get to that in a bit) is based on the 17 volume manhwa, Yebbeun Namja by Chon Kye Young, first published in 2009.

Jang Geun Suk plays Dokgo Ma Te, a beautiful ambitious man who isn't above using women for his own gain. Hong Yoo Ra (Hong Nya Nya in the manhwa), played by Han Chae Young, is a mysterious woman who has been watching Ma Te and will give him the mission of seducing and learning from 10 successful women in order to take his rightful place in life. Kim Bo Tong, played by IU, is an ordinary girl who has been hopelessly in love with Ma Te since their school days and has the challenge of helping him realize true love.

My first impression of DOOM DADA was that it seemed a bit one note and it didn't light my fire the way I had hoped it would. But after listening to it a few more times, I have to say that it did get under my skin. It doesn't have a particularly original sound, but T.O.P's voice is intoxicating and the song has a hypnotic rhythm that stays with you.

Recap:// Attention Please Episode 10

Misaki seems to be getting the hang of her job, although for someone like her, that can spell trouble. Over confidence has always tripped her up in the past. Everyone is striving to reach their goals both on personal and professional fronts, and even failure brings them one step closer to where they need to be.

Switch Girl

Anyone else watching Switch Girl?
I am! I heard about it when I went to DramaFever's first meet up back in September.It's fun to watch so its a change from my melodramatic K-Dramas.

I hope Arata straightens things out soon, Nika is looking miserable...

Friday, October 25, 2013

Recap:// Attention Please Episode 9

Misaki's enthusiasm is winning so far, as she joins the other girls for On The Job Training. The stern Asou, however, will be her instructor and you have to wonder whose spirit will dominate the other. Granted, Misaki still has a lot to learn, but she tends to have an effect on everyone she meets.

First Impressions:// The Heirs

It's the rich chaebol and poor girl scenario again, and why not? It's a winning plot. I'm sure many fans, including myself, went into this with certain expectations and were thrown off by the fact that it didn't follow the standard routine.  I found the first four episodes of The Heirs refreshing and it whet my appetite for more.

Melting Moments:// The Heirs

If you haven't seen episodes 1-3 yet, then I'd suggest you not click the "read more" link to see the images. They are a little spoilerish, but nothing you wouldn't expect to happen.  They won't have the same impact when you do watch the drama if you see them now, though. And besides, you won't relate to the melting-ness of the moment unless you have watched the drama. Still, Lee Min Ho is worth seeing in all his gorgeousness!

Review:// Master's Sun

Master's Sun is one of the most romantic dramas I've ever seen, largely due to the fact that romance was a character unto itself, embodying the sets, lighting, wardrobe and nuances in the performances of talented actors, not to mention the soundtrack.

Director Jin Hyeok whose credits include The Painter of the Wind, Brilliant Legacy, Prosecutor Princess and City Hunter, knows how to set the scene for romance, but I worried about his lack of experience in the horror genre.

Recap:// Attention Please Episode 8

The rocker turned cabin attendant trainee, Misaki, has had a serious wake up call and is now at a turning point in her life.  She received a huge blow at the end of episode 7 that could crush her spirit.  It's hard to believe that anything could keep her down for long, though, and so we dive into episode 8 confident that she will prevail against all hardships.

DramaFever and Heirs Premiere

I attended the DramaFever premiere of Heirs a few days ago with Tiger-Zan. DramaFever is co-producing the drama and even though they posted the first episode a day before the event, we decided mingling and open bar wouldn't hurt.
When we arrived to the venue, there was a line to get in. Didn't surprise me seeing as there was a waiting list to get tickets on Eventbrite the same day they were released (Sept.19th).It wasn't too long of a wait, and the weather was ok, so I was happy. We took the elevator to the 14th floor of the building to hit another line to get in. I thought Tiger would die seeing as she hates elevators and barely made it out of that one because of the small and crowded space between the venue area and corridor.

This is our second DramaFever event, and the staff was friendly and fun. The venue was very nice, with a balcony and awesome view of the city. There was a cutout of Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye that people could take pictures with and everyone received an Heirs Poster of the event. An open bar (which disappointed Tiger as she drowned herself in Samuel Adams and Pinot Grigio), appetizers of chicken skewers, sliders and a bunch of stuff that I knew no names for, that sat on the left side of the room while the chairs and a big screen filled the rest of the place.

They started off with an intro and some trivia. This is where I failed. Partly due to not fully paying attention to the question and a complete fog of memory I was chosen to answer the first trivia question. "1. Name 5 dramas, not including Heirs, with Lee Min Ho." Now I thought of 4 but when I asked "4? or 5?" and they responded "5.", I froze up and blanked out. Needless to say, Tiger was pissed off at me for the rest of the night. (I forgot I Am Sam, I only remember City Hunter, Personal Taste, Boys Over Flowers, and Faith.) Other trivia questions that were asked:

2. Name 5 dramas, besides Heirs, with Park Shin Hye.
3. Name a drama besides Boys of Flowers, where someone nearly drowns.
4. Name a drama someone gets amnesia. (Tiger says All of Them, lol)
5. Krystal stars in 'Heirs'. Name the group she's in as well as 2 of their songs.
6. In 'You are Beautiful', why did the main character have to pretend to be a boy.

Lessons I have learned from this incident. A. Don't drink before trivia. B. Pay attention. C. Google everything before a DramaFever event just in case.

We watched a short personal message from Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho. When it was over they showed a part where they were getting up to leave. Now this part had a few people thinking that the stars would pop out in person and say hello. But they didn't. :(

Heirs Episode one was revealed and received a very positive response from the audience. Much so, that we were shown part of Episode 2 as well. I won't go into detail about the drama, but with adorable english (engrish) and a Min Ho shower within the first few minutes, I can get used to this.

I also meet Stephanie of Crazy For Kdrama and who has been a guest writer for DramaFever. She was pretty sweet and I wish we could have chatted some more. I did get her business card and will keep in touch.(Tiger went to go get drinks and when she came back, she almost killed me for not having my business cards on hand!)

Thanks DramaFever for the awesome event, I hope to attend more in the future and thanks Tiger-Zan for attempting to take pictures and coming along for the ride.

Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Recap:// Attention Please Episode 7

The cabin attendant trainees continue to strive toward their goals, though some are more successful than others.  Misaki's personality might brighten up the room, but it doesn't quite make up for the areas in which she's lacking.  We all knew someone like that at work or in school, right?  If you didn't, that person was likely you.

POW:// Jung Joon Young

POW is a new segment in our blog, Point of Weakness. Since we tend to have several different tastes... bias...boyfriends or whatever we'd love to call the men that make our fangirling all worth while. I will dedicate a spot for the man that made my heart flutter this week.(or for today since I am pretty fickle when fangirling.)

Today I present to you, Jung Joon Young. Does his name ring a bell? If not, I shall post his beauty and see if it pulls a heartstring or two. (WALLPAPER ALERT!)

Jung Joon Young
DOB: February 21, 1989
Birth Place: Jakarta, Indonesia
Rock singer, plays guitar and is a song writer.
Has lived in several countries due to his father being an international business man.
Can speak 5 languages: English, Korean, Tagalog, Chinese and Japanese
He is listed as an unofficial member of LEDApple (as main vocalist) and did not debut with the group due to contract issues with a different company.
He won third place in Superstar K4 as a solo artist.
Jung Joon Young was in the drama Monstar.
He is currently on We Got Married with Jung Yoo Mi. (4d Couple)

He has a heavy, smooth, unique voice that can make your heart melt and his odd behaviors border crazy and cute. I seriously don't know what to do with the guy so I guess I will swoon for now. When it comes to music he takes things seriously and is somewhat of a genius.

Upcoming Korean Movies

I came across a few movies that have caught my eye for the upcoming months. I am sure its only due to the hot males stars in them. So let's get started with some synopsis info and trailers!

Tough As Iron

A legendary street fighter (Yoo Ah In) begins to clean up his act while taking care of his sick mother (Kim Hae-Sook). All seems fine and dandy until he is dragged into the crime world, doing all he can in order to pay for his mother's operation. Can he find peace and happiness in family or is he bound for disaster in the web of trouble and gangsters? Desperation is what makes us stronger
This movie marks a return for Yoo Ah In in film since 2011's Punch.

For more info visit: HERE

Rough Play

(aka Actor is an Actor)

Lee Joon of MBLAQ plays an actor who becomes a star overnight. But fame comes with a fee as things become dark and the people around him are in danger.
The last thing I saw Joon in was Ninja Assassin back in 2009 though he was in Jungle Fish 2 as well (I think that was like 8 episodes.) The trailer has me highly anticipating the release of this movie as Lee Joon looks like he will play a very convincing role in this thriller.


(aka Alumni)

T.O.P is forced to become a a spy for North Korea in order to save his sick sister. While on mission, he portrays a high school exchange/transfer student. He becomes tangled with a girl in high school who shares the same name as is sister.
This movie will be released in November after a long delay as I heard it was completed way back in the earlier months of this year. Better late then never right?

No Breathing

Seo In Guk and Lee Jong Suk star in a competive swimming movie. Of course they have a rivalry that seems to shift to friendship somewhere along the lines, and there's a love interest involved. Sorry for the sucky synopsis but all I see is shirtless hotties and my brain melted along the way.

I have to see ALL three four of these movies. Who knows? Maybe I can actually write a movie review soon.

Photos are copyright of their owners. We do not claim ownership. I randomly found them on line. No infringement intended.

SHINee Everybody: (Teaser)

(via smtown's YouTube) SHINee's Everybody Image Teaser has been released just a few hours ago. It shows the members in dark colors, each sporting their own on/off switch or wind-up piece sticking out of their backs. Seems like they need something to fuel them so they can "turn on". No worries Onew, I got you covered. *smirks*

The ending images have the members lying on the floor with a tube/wire connected to them. What is that that fuels SHINEE? Could it be the music? or Shawols? Guess we will have to wait and see when the MV is released. The suspense is killing me.

EDIT: And now the music video teaser is released as well. Anyone see Taemin spinning around all topless?!

SHINee's Back

Well not quite, but they did perform during Gangnam Hallyu Festival that occurred October 6th (in Korean/ October 5th in the States). They will be releasing their 5th Mini Album entitled Everybody on October 14th.
SHINee performed the title track during the festival. The members wore all white during the performance. The song has a little dubstep flair. The dance seemed slightly weird from the side angle video I saw but it had a robotic feel to it.(which I loved since I feel it is harder for groups to pull off clean, unison moves in. SHINee did a perfect job pulling it off.)

I honestly was waiting for Onew Condition to kick in but the performance and vocals were focused and smooth. (Enter Windmill dance here.) Onew and Jonghyun's blonde hair made it hard for the untrained eye of a new Shawol to differentiate the two in some parts of the performance. (I could tell since I have been going Onew crazy for the last few weeks.) I thought it was pretty awesome and can't wait to see the MV for it. The chorus was too plain for my liking but it was catchy and the performance was enjoyable. I am hoping that it is more of a dance MV rather than a story telling one, just for the sake of being able to become hypnotized by the moves that this kind of beat can stir up.

Of course, once it's out I will post an MV BREAKDOWN, 'cuz that's what Batzy does. ;)

The song that I am looking forward to the most in "Symptoms" which kind of reminds me of Chris Brown's "Take Me Down." I am not posting any video from the Festival as some are of bad quality and being taken down so feel free to search for it on YouTube or Vimeo or Daily Motion or Whatever video site you guys use. I will post SMTown's video for the medley of the mini album and the video to "Symptoms". Enjoy.

Waiting for Sukkie in Beautiful Man

Jang Geun Suk as Dokgo Ma Te in Beautiful Man

Ever since I learned that Jang Geun Suk would be starring in the new drama Beautiful Man (Yebbeun Namja) I've been in a tizzy.  The drama is based on the manhwa of the same name by Chon Kye Young. You might look at it and think that we've seen Jang Geun Suk in this role before, but he does it so well!  The arrogant, misguided, cold man whose heart must be melted by a goofy (and probably clumsy) leading lady. It's one of my favorite scenarios, especially when Sukkie is involved.

Dokgo Ma Te (*29) is the most beautiful man in the world.  He's also very ambitious; longing for power, status and wealth, and he's going to use his natural assets to his advantage.  Hong Nya Nya (39), the ex-daughter-in-law of a rich family becomes his mentor and instructs Dokgo Ma Te to seduce ten successful women who all have a different skill set that he should learn.  The women range in age from 18 to 50. Thinking about the casting for this boggles the mind

MV BREAKDOWN:// Block B: Very Good

Yes boys, very very good.
I'll keep this short and with visuals to please.

The Song: Strong guitar riffs. Loud and fun.
The Video: Cinematic at times. Playful and stylish.
The Concept: The boys are shown in a van, with clowns masks, on their way to rob a bank. While at the bank, they raise some hell, dance and blow shit up.
The Meaning: Block B decides to shed the mask of their former company. They don't want to look like 'clowns' (referring to the past incidents of immaturity and company issues) and decide to show their true identities to the world. Plus they will get their money, by any means necessary. I mean within the first 50 seconds of the video, the overdraft window gets shot up, like a boss.
I feel smart for actually looking past cute boys and reading between the lines. +1 Batzy.

With the release of "Be the Light", they seem to be more mature and have grown due to experiences they endured, in a positive way. Reason why I did not post a MV Breakdown of that video is because U-Kwon gets beat to hell in it and that hurt Batzy's lil heart. Instead I will bask in the sexiness that is this MV Breakdown. Care to join me? (Zico and U-Kwon wallpapers towards to bottom of the post. Yay!)


Maximum Close Up Version:
