Special Eu-Mak: B.A.P 2017 World Tour Party Baby

Screen-Shot-2017-02-06-at-7.26.33-PM

I am living a dream now. Last night, I attended B.A.P World Tour Party Baby concert with Bel, JaeSwoon, and Van. The concert lasted for two hours but 16 hours later, I am still on BAP hangover. It even crossed my mind last night that if they have a second show tonight, I will go back again! They were fabulous performers. It is hard to put this feeling into words. I did not take a lot of photos or videos because it is hard to record the experience. I believe that you have to be there in person to experience the mind-blowing, outstanding BAP members. They were mesmerizing. They were professional. They were awesome! But hey, even though I said this I managed to capture a few videos and photos for this post. Also, I would like to thank JaeSwoon for sharing the photo of us.

SadaHahaha…. For me, a better question should be 3 Kpop songs while cooking (Alex-Night Time). When I look back, I used to start with BAP-Young, Wild & Free, followed by BTS – Blood, Sweat and Tears, and ended it with BIG BANG Fantastic Baby.

Wednesday Eu-Mak: Gangsta Paradise

Xn2XTHN

Dear yeoreobun, happy hump day! How you doing? I hope all is well. How’s September treating you? Is it cooler where you are? It has gotten warmer again in my part of the world. Heh, I don’t want to complain much. Frankly, I’m not ready for cooler weather even though I prefer it that way. Anyway, let’s just get along with September…

This week, I have prepared two oldie songs for you to reminisce. The reason I named today’s post as Gangsta Paradise is because they seemed to be almost ready to fight whatever that is coming their way. The two fortunate groups I have selected for this post are B.A.P and of course, MBLAQ. They are two very different groups but they delivered their songs strongly and confidently. So let’s hear out the first song.

Yeap, it is one of B.A.P’s famous songs! One Shot! The song started cheesy in the beginning but after that mini intro, booooooom they went strong and high notes on us until the end! The soulful of the song despite being a pop is extremely welcoming. The rap part is a bit weak, I wish the rapper has stronger voice like Rap Mon but hey, you can’t have it all. The song itself is magnificent to my ear. It’s quite a masterpiece on its own. The MV is pretty intense, right? The forceful song added with this intense acting, I’m quite sold. Love the dance and plot of this MV. And the color scheme is fierce. What can I say… but daebak! *nods* I approved them and I’m excited that they are coming back after years of battling with their agency. I guess the lawsuit is over. I wish the boys all the best! Okay, next…

Hehehe… Yes, This Is War! Need I say more coz you know I am extremely biased since I’m an MBLAQ girl through and through. This song is just out of this world insane! The marriage between military and classical music blend in with pop is simple melodic. The passion is there. The feeling is totally there. It has this pow that you can’t resist to quit. Like BAP’s One Shot, This Is War MV is also intense. The dance and choreography are awesome, and the plot is great.. My only complain? Joon is toooootally into the character and it appeared to be overacting a bit! But hey, he is into his character and that’s why he is an actor today. But aren’t the boys lookin’ very fierce and strong and powerful on the floor? They filled my heart with this intense sensation that I just can’t describe. I’m just full of wow right now… *grin*

Wbooo

So yeah, I like these two songs like that *giggle*. I have yet to see gangsta influence MVs lately… Perhaps idols have move on to something different? I say bring it back! Old school MVs are classy! Alrighty, I’m out, yo! See y’all next week!

Wednesday Eu-Mak: APink All Around

Escanear0010

Yeoreobun, happy Wednesday! I hope your hump day is as delightful as mine! Yes, I’m just happy to be alive today and in good spirit. I hope this happy feeling will flow continuously to the weekend *wink*. Since I’m in a good mood, the songs I have chosen for today’s post reflect my happy feeling. And I want you to be as happy as me! So please excuse me because I’m extremely bias today… I am happy because APink is all around me lately. If you saw my recent Song of the Moment post, you will know why *giggles*.

Here are the songs and I hope you enjoy their songs and couple of it are duets with B.A.P and B2ST! I am still catching up with my work but I still want to send some cheery dust to your way! Tackle hugs to each of you! *finger heart*

Special Eu-Mak: 1004 (Angel) – B.A.P

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 🙂

bap

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?

bap

Even the Jongup version of himself looks angelic with those cracked-mud wings behind him.

bap

Okay, he’s angelic without them as well…

bap

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.

bap

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…

bap

And Yongjae looks like he’s had it up to here (but in a really really hot way) while punching the mirror

bap

What is this witchcraft?

bap

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.

bap

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…!!??

bap

Also, I clearly remember Daehyun with wings in the first teaser – could this mean that he is, in fact the 1004 (Angel)?

bap

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.

 Um…

 Wait..

Himchan…?
