Hello again kpoppers, another special eu-mak post by kpopkolorado! And this time, her hilarious opinion on the latest MV by BAP’s new releases, 1004 (Angel). Take it away, doc!
Well, this MV is quite the heart and mind bender. Isn‘t it?! Ugh, so many unanswered questions! 1004 (Angel) is actually made of two songs from their new album “First Sensibility”: 1004 and Save Me – both of which are heavily emotional and deserving of an epic and heart-tugging review, which I’ll leave up to someone else to do 🙂
This video opens with Yongguk running through a desolate landscape towards what appears to be a lone dinosaur grave site (?) while the beginning of “Save Me“ plays. Right from the get go, you know there’s bad news on the way.
We then see Daehyun in an empty house experiencing memories of his long lost angel through the eyes of five different versions of himself – or at least this is what I choose to believe because the alternative is that she kicked these six gorgeous boys to the curb and my brain can’t process that.
Sidebar: You know how memories are usually rose-colored? I think there is a lot of that going on here. I mean, sure, Daehyun sings “You’re like an angel” over and over again and she does look angelic all dressed in white, standing up against a backdrop of a cracked wall with big angel wings behind her, but who wouldn’t?
Even the Jongup version of himself looks angelic with those cracked-mud wings behind him.
Okay, he’s angelic without them as well…
Anyway, what was I talking about? Oh yes, the fact that Daehyun’s memories are a bit sugar-coated. I started to get suspicious when there were images of the girl crying. I thought that maybe Daehyun and his five dancing alter egos were haunting this poor girls memories (and doll house) after his untimely death.
But, then, wae is Jongup singing “I don’t know how I’m living. After you left me, I’m going crazy. Every day, every night I can’t even sleep. I’m all alone, drinking away, cry?” I agree that there are some major grammatical flaws, but doesn’t this mean that he’s alive?
And then… Guys? What’s with the angry/sexy dance? Yongguk looks kinda pissed and blame-y and I’ve never seen Jongup pound his thighs so hard. I don’t know what Daehyun is doing though…
And Yongjae looks like he’s had it up to here (but in a really really hot way) while punching the mirror
What is this witchcraft?
Does this scene where the feathers are falling down all around Jongup mean that the illusion of the angel girl is busted? I’m pretty sure that’s his ‘angry’ face.
But then the CF Teaser version is so confusing because there are all those super hot pics of B.A.P laying down with that pterodactyl skeleton. They’re laying on a prehistoric grave site!!…Surely this means death…!!??
Also, I clearly remember Daehyun with wings in the first teaser – could this mean that he is, in fact the 1004 (Angel)?
At this point, I’m screaming “Gukkie! I need answers!!” when my suspicions about the devil girl are finally confirmed as Yongguk starts rapping the lyrics from Save Me:
My heart that has passed its expiration date
Was colder than any winter
You cheated me until the end
The love that was supposed to be eternal turned into a nightmare
I try meeting other people but my heart is trapped in a fence
I can’t trust anyone, now no one is by my side
I only look at the passing memories
I really hate you so I throw them away
I hate girls’ lies
Get away Get away Get away
Don’t say my name
I hate this crazy love, crazy
Aww snap! I knew it! The reason for all of this craziness is finally unveiled. Now I can enjoy the rest of the video with a clear and focused mind.
