B2ST 2014 COMEBACK – Good Luck 비스트

Its been a year since I posted a review about Beast and now I am hard pressed to think of a time when BEAST has disappointed me with a comeback. Their latest is right on par. BEAST is back with their new song and album, “Good Luck.” This song reminds me of why I like BEAST while still recognizing that they grow, musically, with each comeback. “Good Luck” is very different from their previous single, “Shadow.” While I love “Shadow” because it was and still is very different from anything else going on in Kpop, “Good Luck” is more my style.

Before getting into the song I’ll go over the music video itself. I don’t know if BEAST uses a variety of MV directors but I’m thinking they usually use the same one, because most BEAST MVs have the same camera feel to them. The concept is mostly performance with a bit of acting here and there. The acting scenes reflect the theme of the song which is a relationship “breaking up,” with scenes of the members leaving a girl or by themselves looking distraught. The performance scenes are great; they are done in a couple of different settings. While both settings are on a soundstage, one has the look of being on the street. The color themes for this video match the mood of the song well; dark while mixing in some strong, bright colors, it just works.

B2ST 2014 COMEBACK

The choreography is not just great, it is wonderful, perfect, you name it, and it’s it. This choreography is the best they’ve done since “Fiction” and that is saying a lot. It’s more than just the point choreography; it’s every single move and step. Their choreographer went all out and really crafted a dance that is perfectly matched for this song and the BEAST member’s skills.

The lyrics of this song, as I mentioned before, are about the breaking up of a relationship. I would like to clear up any possible misunderstanding, first off. In English, in this context, saying “good luck” in this fashion is not a positive expression. Saying “good luck” in this context is bitter and somewhat passive aggressive. If you (for the non-Korean speakers) read the translation it is very clear that this is the desired effect. This is not a happy “good luck” that they are saying, this is closer to saying “screw you for leaving me, you better be happier without me since you put me through this misery.”

B2ST 2014 COMEBACK

With that cleared up, the lyrics are great. There is no shortage of love songs and break up songs in Kpop, but something about this one stands out. I think it’s the somewhat vindictive and bitter nature to the lyrics. As well, these lyrics to the up beat instrumental gives the feeling of while it’s a break up song, it’s also empowering. Empowering in the sense that yes, it’s sad but, it won’t be the end of the world.

B2ST 2014 COMEBACK

All of the members look stunning in the MV. For some of the performance parts they are decked out in HBA clothing, which is very popular in Kpop right now. While Yoseob and Gikwang look great with their more natural hair coloring, Junhyung, Doojoon, Hyunseung, and Dongwoon are rocking died hair. I think Junhyung looks the best of all those with dyed hair; the bleach blonde really suits him. The one thing that I think is a little off is that Hyunseung looks like a weird tennis player. I guess if anyone would look a little weird it would be the 4D Hyunseung. Also, I don’t think Dongwoon has ever looked more handsome than he does in this MV; really take a look at him.

One little hidden meaning I caught in this MV is the image of the Last Supper. For Junhyung’s acting scenes he’s seated at the center of a long table, surrounded by posed women. This would seem to be just random, but the more you look at it, the more it begins to look like the Da Vinci painting. To top it off, one of the women breaks her pose and stabs Junhyung with a dinner knife. Someone call Judas? It may be a bit of a stretch, but it really stood out to me when I watched it. LOL

B2ST 2014 COMEBACK DA VINCI LAST SUPPER

I am personally looking forward to either a Dance Version or a Dance Practice video. I would be pleased with both or just either of the two. Oh yes, this has to be wrapped up neatly and with a bow on top. So… SO BEAST!

FIGHTING BEAST!

Standard

B2ST’s main singer, Yang Yoseob, celebrated his birthday on January 5. As he turned 25 (Korean age), he celebrated his birthday by playing soccer with label mates in Cube Entertainment.

B2ST’s leader, Yoon Doojoon, was the first one to upload a group picture of Cube Entertainment’s soccer team. The birthday boy then continued updating fans about how he celebrated his birthday, as he tweeted, “Cube Soccer Team activated! Thank you for surprise party! Today’s birthday party is together with soccer” as well updated another group picture.

Cube’s soloist, Noh Jihoon, also displayed his excitement for the agency’s soccer team and congratulated Yoseob.

“Our agency play soccer together! Yoseob hyung’s birthday^^* Congratulations! In the future tooo~~established cube entertainment soccer team,” he tweeted.

BTOB’s Lee Minhyuk was a bit late to congratulate Yoseob.

“Then (I upload) this picture. It’s been passed but happy birthday hyung!,” he tweeted, also with a picture.

Besides Doojoon, Yoseob, Jihoon, and Minhyuk, other Cube’s artists, such as B2ST’s Lee Gikwang and BTOB’s Seo Eunkwang, are also seen in the picture. Not only the artists, the soccer team also consists of some artists’ managers and staffs.

In particular, Doojoon, Gikwang, and Jihoon have gained public attention for their soccer’s skill after their appearance in the “2013 MBC Chuseok Special – Idol Championship”. The three B2ST’s members plus Jihoon are also known as the member of celebrity’s soccer club, FC Men.

Once again, happy birthday, Yoseob!

B2ST’s rapper, who turned to be a soloist, Yong Junhyung, and composer Kim Taejoo have used their Instagram account to tease each other with old pictures.

Junhyung was the first one to start the teasing by uploading an old picture of Taejoo in the middle of weird dancing and having strange facial expression.

“Good morning, to open your morning, Kim taejoo..jjjaaal.,” Junhyung wrote.

In the afternoon, Taejoo responded Junhyung by uploading Junhyung’s pre-debut picture, in which Junhyung looks just like an ordinary student with his formal pose in an old long-sleeve white shirt.

“After long contemplating, To open your afternoon, Yong Junhyung 7 years ago..jjal,” he wrote.
Junhyung and Taejoo are known for their strong relationship as the two worked together many times for B2ST’s album as well as Junhyung’s solo debut album, “Flower”.

Seeing these pictures, fans left several comments, such as “Taejoo’s expression, laugh hard since the morning”, “Taejoo’s revenge is best” and “You two are so cute”.
