Since it’s the start of 2013, it means its time for a fresh spin on idols and their images,songs, and dances. Let’s take a look at what to expect this 2013!
SNSD /Girl’s Generation- “I got a boy”
The girls kicked off the new year with a unique song that mashed two different sounds and made it one song. Hands down this song is forever dubbed “ICONIC.” We all know that SM’s intent with the girls was to make them the best of the best, innovators, and a step ahead of everyone else. With this song, even though it is quite confusing the first time you hear it, it’s actually really great! The choreography takes SNSD to a new level out of their usual high heels and into their sneakers for a more ghetto chic image. They enter the realm of unfamiliar territory and totally blew us all out of the water with those bad ass dance skills! Think about it, the song is constantly changing and there is never truly a moment where the beat stays the same; the constant switch up makes it almost nearly impossible to learn the dance and stay in pace with everyone else. These girls are able to get the job done and executed perfectly!
CN Blue- “I’m sorry”
CN Blue’s comeback has been garnering a lot of attention this time around. However, I’m not surprised, these talented group of men can capture anyone’s heart with just their instruments… ok that sounded kind of weird so i’ll rephrase; they have been able to capture so much attention because they really are talented. Their new mini-album is called “Re: Blue” which basically means the rebirth of CN Blue. I really enjoy the whole phoenix concept they have going on now. However, i really don’t find the re-invention needed because they are a great band and the music they have produced before was absolutely amazing but i guess since it IS the Korean music industry, re- invention is needed, I mean every group goes through a point of re-invention; look at B1A4, Boyfriend, SNSD, SHINee, etc.. Anywho, the video for “I’m sorry” was released last night and it really showed the edgier side of CN Blue. The song in all honestly is awesome, the view actually shocked me a bit. I wasnt expecting Jungshin to actually assault a women using flowers but I guess it is a part of this rebellious concept they have going on throughout the video. Overall, it’s exceptionally enjoyable.
B.A.P- “Rain Sound”
WHAT’S THE NAME OF THE GAME?! the answer is actually the “Rain Sound!” They’re making a comeback with a balllad that will leave you wanting more! Well, in the words of L.L Cool J “Dont call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years.” Although they haven’t been around for years, (they are actually about to make 1 year together as B.A.P) that is exactly how they come across, like they have been performing on stage for years! Anywho, The MV was released today and I must say it left me a bit on the iffy side. I am actually a Baby so for me to say that i really dont dig the video kind of kills me inside. The song itself is actually really great. I enjoyed the really acoustic feel that was given off. I really loved the song actually, their voices were absolutely smooth and portrayed the meaning of the song extremely well. It’s nice to see them back in their original B.A.P concept and not with the whole cute concept (dont get me wrong, I actually adored their cute image for ‘Stop it’ and ‘Crash.’) This is actually a really great ballad and the rapping is spectacular, it really shows a softer yet still masculine side of B.A.P. The video…it’s not my favorite but the boys look really handsome and their acting is impressive but what i really didnt enjoy was the whole mannequin thing they had going on…it kind of crept me out. Like the part where Youngjae was crying over the mannequin and then felt it’s breast (well at least that’s what it looked like to me) that part was actually funny, but I just really dont like mannequins…BLAME IT ON HORROR FILMS OK?!
All in all these are the comebacks that are really bound to be strong and have high levels of popularity with these songs. With that being said, be on the look out for the next batch of comebacks…speaking of which, LOOK FORWARD FOR THE NEXT KPOP CUTIE OF THE MONTH POLL!
