Big Bang are Losers?

Okay, much better than Bae Bae which felt like a reintroduction of each member; GD will sing/rap first, and then Taeyang, followed by T.O.P, Seungri, and finally Daesung. This song and video felt like it had a plot(ish) and the song was better. The song reminded me of Stupid Liar, not in the beat or tempo but rather in the message of the song and the feeling fro it. The MV, however, reminded me of GD's Crooked. The 'I don't care, life sucks,' kind of vibe was strong in both videos. The MV was very interesting and after watching it a couple times and looking up the lyrics it sort of makes sense. Each fan will interpret the video differently but from how I see it each member is telling a story. GD plays someone who comes from money, very rich, but very lonely seeing as he is alone through the whole MV and aimlessly wanders the streets till he ends up lying on the asphalt in the middle of an intersection (which I'm sure is symbolic for something). Taeyang was religious. He had some form of faith but it appears that he's lost it. I'm going to say that he committed some form of sin and he feels he can never go back so dying is the only option for him; thus he commits suicide. Seungri has a girlfriend who is cheating on him. On the outside he seems like a very composed person but it's rather clear he has serious anger issues based on the way he's smashing everything in his apartment up and the how he treats the girl when he confronts her. Daesung is a kind hearted, insecure guy. He gets attacked by a group of thugs, I'm not sure why they attack him, but he decides he needs to become stronger. After he feels confident enough he goes and attacks the three who beat him up but all that does is get him even more injured. T.O.P's story is the most interesting which is why I saved it for last. I feel like his is the one filled with the most symbolism which is why it was most difficult for me to understand. T.O.P is a clean-control-freak who doesn't want anything in his life tampered with. He's clothed head to toe while the girl he is with is in her underwear. This could be symbolic for him giving nothing of himself to her while she is the one doing the loving in this relationship. Everything in his apartment is covered in white sheets and the second the woman touches one of the sheets to see what's underneath T.O.P looses his cool. Next time we see him, he's wandering through an alley in his pajamas and covered in blood. My guess is that he snapped and killed her. The lyrics suggest that that either the girls are prostitutes, or T.O.P goes through women really quickly. The lyrics also could mean that this isn't the first time something like this has happened which maybe is why he covers everything in sheets; easy clean up. That's a little sick if you think of it.
However you interpret this video, it is very interesting.
I really liked how, in the song, one member would say "I'm a," and another member would say "loser" in a cool transition from each member's part. Very nicely done. Don't want to say much more cause I've spent a lot of time on the video but read the lyrics, they're interesting and help tell the story of the video.

BigBang is back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BigBang is back!!!!! Honestly, I didn't believe the rumors cause it's been three years and they've been "coming back" for two years, but they came back with two new music videos!! They released Bae Bae and then Loser; one right after the other. Let's watch Bae Bae first!!

Um.... I don't even know... Yeah... the video is rated 19+. I have no idea what just happened.

I Need U MV

This was just as cheesy as I thought it would be. I understand that it's a serious video about the boys dealing with getting over a girl in different ways but it was cheesy. Let's see if I got this right. Based on the MV, Jungkook cries and becomes a zombie to get over this girl, Jin burns a flower, on a wood floor which seems dangerous. Suga lies in a hotel room with a lighter and gets all broody, Jimin takes a fully clothed bath and burns a picture(?) letter(?) and considers drowning himself. J-Hope considers suicide, V gets all sad and goes emo, and RapMon, well either he didn't get his heart broken or he got over it quickly. Way to be the mature one RapMon. Well however they try to cope it's obvious to see that Bangtail Boys realized what lots of other Kpop guy groups come to realize after a breakup; bros are the best medicine. I did like the song even though it was crazy repetitive. I can't wait to see the live version as I am sure it will be filled with lots of slow, pain filled, expressive, dance moves.

I Need U teaser

This is going to be so cheesy, isn't it? This teaser had me nearly laughing outloud. The angst, the brooding, the pained expressions. I love BTS; however, I like their faster hip-hop songs far better than any of their slower songs. I think the only slow song by them I have on my phone is Coffee, and I skip it 9 times out of 10. But, we are getting a slow sounding song. Let's see how this goes. April 29th.

BTS will be back.

BTS is making a comeback! Their 3rd mini album will be released on April 29th. We get our first(?) teaser and sounds like Suga is the one to start it off. There is nothing to say we'll get more teasers but the 29th is almost two weeks away so surely we'll get at least one more teaser, right? This was an animated teaser which was odd but told a story. I don't know what Suga was saying but you can find the English translation somewhere on Twitter so if you really want to know, check it out. I don't know what this teaser says about the MV and album but it was certainly different from any other teaser I've seen.
