So here's the Video Breakdown:
The Song: Upbeat with nice vocal harmony. Catchy as hell.
The Message: Girl Power. Not waiting for a man to take control. Taking it upon yourself to go and take opportunity. Why can't girl's make the first move? Rawr~
The English: Bare minimum. But it makes sense so I can't complain.
Check it out for yourself.

I am going to start off by saying that I love LED Apple. I think its amazing how they play instruments like a band rather than a cluster of flower boys, thrown together to entertain with visuals as their strong point.
I'm a fan of their Music Note, where they do covers and get to show their fun and silly antics every now and then. And of course I watch Hanbyul's Blah Blah, which went from him quickly reviewing the Billboard charts and rambling, to having him teach Korean and involving the other members.
I will not add screenshots to this post and keep it short and sweet. I have issues with the boys stylist. I do not like their outfits at all, nor the feel of the video. I think the colors should have been dumbed down to something a little more classy dark and sexy for the video. Guess thats just the graphic designer in me screaming out. I was expecting an awesome comeback and have a feeling this song will not grow on me.
I think Kyumin is awesome in this song. His vocals are quite strong.I do like the little solos they give each member to let them shine for a sec or two but here are some down falls. What I do NOT like is the English usage, or the Spanish usage in this single.
"I say Ole, Ole, Ole." What, are you a matador. Who says that?
"Viva la loca loca" Maybe its "living the vida loca" or are you really saying "Live/Living the crazy crazy." Either way, no thanks.
Some lyrics that translate to things like "Tonight, I'll take her." and "You shout until the sun rises." Not to mention the cleavage shot given at 1:45 does say that these guys are indeed Bad Boys.
I'll continue to look forward to Music Note and Blah Blah.
Loen Entertainment presented BTS, a hip hop group, who's debut less than two weeks ago. I knew since the teaser was released for this video that I would love these boys. It's Intro Time.
BTS aka Bangtan Boys (Bulletproof Boy Scouts)
Here are a few screenshots from the video. I think you can tell who my favorite is so far.
The Song: Screams independence and individuality. An anthem to break free of the traditional views and be yourself. If you dream, wake up and live it out. Bass and beat are very street worthy with similarities to music by Dr. Dre and Snoop. (Deep Cover)
The Dance: The boys are in sync with choreography with a strong presence and charisma. One word: SWAG.
Certain members struck words into my mind. Like this:
Jin...License? (Could you have not avoided the boxes?)
J-Hope....Zelo? (Ok, it was the hair and mask thing. I get it.)
Rap Monster....Eyes? (Wtf? Whats wrong with your face that you are hiding your eyes..all..the...time?)
Jimin...Abs! (-Scrolls up again-)
Suga... Taeyang? (You seen the similarity too, right?)
Jung Kook...Sparta? (Jung Kook not Kim Jong Kook from Running Man silly.)
V...Violent. (In his intro he looks pretty evil swinging that pipe.)
All in all, I like them alot. I can't wait to see more from these guys. BTS Fighting!
I hope the talent in the group doesn't get over shadowed by the fluff and shines through. Do you think BTS will make it big or hit a brick wall like...idk, Block B. (FYI before the antis start rolling in, Block B is super talented and just hit a few speed bumps.)

So I didn't know a group named WonderBoyz existed outside of the UKISS members making a cameo in Mr. Idol as the group Wonder Boys. Maybe I am out of the loop.
Anyways, the video was posted about a month ago on CJENMMUSIC's YouTube account, today was the first time I viewed it. (While watching several EXO Wolf Dance Covers.)
I am loving the song, I think its got the Latina blood dancing in my veins. I've had it on repeat for a while now. And my comments are:
- The english parts are pretty good. Nice job guys.
- The chorus is catchy though I've been muttering it, not knowing what the hell was said beside the word Tarzan.
- You all know I love eye candy. I am honestly gonna look into getting more info on these guys. Though the "Tarzan" peeping his "Jane" through the telescope was creepy yet adorable. Not that I like creepy but I am filled with mixed emotions of love when I see asian boys. (Aren't you?)
- I actually like how the infamous Tarzan yell was used in the song. Not overkill but just right.
- Ending of the video...hmmm. It left me wanting more but thinking the scene was kindda awkward.
We'll see how I feel about these guys after some research and more videos. Keep an eye out.

First thoughts...OMG THEY ARE BACK!
The boys start off in a black and white, classy yet sexy theme. Suited up and some members even wearing suits that accentuate some highlighted body parts.
Seung Ho is looking great. He is really taking his health and exercise regiment seriously nowadays, shredding his image as the most unhealthy member of the group.
Thunder's pink hair definitely adds a more fun and playful image. He doesnt really rap in this video but Mir handles that towards the end. G.O. even has a slight hair color job too.
Lee Joon's eyes are captivating as usual. His dance background comes into play while dancing with a girl early in the video and shows some cuteness to the camera around the 3:20 mark.
Mir is adorable yet serious and sophisticated. His presence is strong when he raps.
The dance involves some hip action, which is a plus. The changes from the dark, sexy themes in the begin, change up to a more brighter theme when white suits are covered in glow in the dark paints.
The video even ends with a female foreigner which is always interesting to watch in kpop videos.Not sure why...
WATCH THE VIDEO.
