What is the one thing I'm very particular about? Does anybody know the answer to my question? Well, if I'm highly fond of girl groups, in all variations, it must mean that I'm quite particular about my boy groups. Today however, I'm bringing you a set of music video reviews that are only for boy groups. Of course, these are very talented and some of my favorite boy groups out there so that helps. B.A.P came back with a new music video as well as Exo and Day6. I'm excited to review these videos because I love each group I will be reviewing, so if you wish to continue, keep reading.
B.A.P is back with a less intense music video than their previous releases. “Honeymoon” is a calm, relaxed, tropical sounding, ethereal song that I'm assuming is about a honeymoon. Throughout the video, I kept getting these creepy vibes like there's something these boys are hiding. They are on a honeymoon but how come there are no females in the video. At one point, it appears that a member is burying something which I can only assume is a body. There were various symbols throughout like a computer, goldfish, and pills that may all be connected. Toward the end of the video, we see the members sitting at a white table drinking wine. I think it's meant to be a celebration of the end of things. I will say my favorite part of the entire song was when the rap and the whistle blended together in one final chorus. It reminded me of “I'll Be Your Man” by BTOB which is my favorite song of theirs to date.
Exo just released their repackaged version of The War. With a new album, comes a new music video. “Power” was a comic book related video in ties with their repackaged album. At first I thought the idea was really cool but the video didn't actually have anything happen in it. I hope they continue with this idea because “Power” felt like a set up for something greater. Essentially, they fought a giant robot with lasers and somehow beat it and gained super powers via the “dragon balls”. The song was a power dance track that was quite different from “KoKoBop”. Nothing in this song really stood out to me but I still loved it very much.
Here I am admitting I'm confused because as much as I love Day6, each of their videos gets more and more confusing. “I Loved You”, as I expected, is a slow ballad track that carries a great emotion throughout the song. The video seems to pick up where the last one left off being about a love triangle. I don't know if this is correct. I just read a comment on the previous Day6 video about it, but Won Pil is gay and likes Sungjin. I'm still trying to reconnect all the dots in my head about these past few videos. I will say this, the girl that Sungjin is with is beautiful. I don't know if I can expand any more than I already have without confusing the hell out of myself.
Well, there are 3 music videos from only boy groups, reviewed by me. At first I was very skeptical about boy groups but I am slowing coming to realize they are extremely talented and while girl groups don't deserve to be cast out and overlooked, boy groups don't deserve that treatment either. I hope you enjoyed my reviews for this session of Quick Reviews. Be sure to support each of these artists and like and share this Quick Reviews blog on social media. Leave a comment on which video was your favorite. My personal favorite was Day6 because they never fail to impress me. If you didn't know, I don't have a bias in B.A.P, my bias is D.O in Exo and Won Pil in Day6. Thank you for supporting me and I'll see you in the next one.
My Quick Reviews are conglomerates of music video reviews. For instance, if there are several releases in a single day that are all related or somewhat related, I will do a Quick Review segment.
