“I can’t. I’m having a music burnout,” I said when my sister asked me to listen to a new band.
“Oh really?” was her response.
Sure enough, I crawled out of the hole that I was in from getting a job not many people agreed on and quit not long after. And I found this Kpop group called B1A4 from watching their latest release ‘Rollin’. They sure looked like another one of those BTS-types with snazzy artistic videos that had deep meanings.
It’s okay, I thought, taking in the One-Republic-vibes I was getting from the choir-heavy chorus. My gaze wandered to the side and I decided to watch their dance practice videos on a whim. I clicked on ‘Lonely’, the 2nd suggestion, because I don’t like clicking on 1st suggestions for some weird reason. Oh, what a sweet choice I made then.
I watched almost all of the dance videos, quickly falling for their unique dances and especially how most of their moves ‘hit’ the tempo/beat (forgive my poor musical language). Judging by my lack of balking at their music videos, I’d like to say they are a group of good-looking men (keke). Normally I cower behind my pillow when I watch new groups because some have fierce looks/features that just hit me. All of them are pretty easy on the eyes~
I don’t know much about them because I’ve been busy trying to swallow down every performance video before the work week starts, but visually Gongchan caught my eye with his cute puppy eyes. Vocally, Sandeul is the one for me. Acting-wise, Baro impressed me with his emotion in the MVs. Surprisingly, I quickly warmed up to CNU, maybe because of his tall frame, energetic dancing and trot-like voice that reminds me of Heechul. As for Jinyoung, he’s pretty hard to miss and reading about his musical abilities made me look up to him. Since he wrote most of their songs, wow.. just wow, I love them so much.
Their sound is different with a lot of guitar-riffs and mid-tempo beats. Listen to ‘Tried to Walk’ and that’s the kind of soft spot I have for acoustic guitars. Their lyrics either break my heart to bits or lift my spirits to the sky. There is no in between. I can’t tell which song I like more than another so here I am, trying to repeat each song as many times because it’s that good.
I don’t know why but I love this MV so much?!! Or all of their MVs, to be honest, because they are generally so aesthetically pleasing to watch. And the boys are always so dramatic and into their roles~
This dorky dance put such a big smile on this depressed person’s face that I instantly knew I was going to fall harder for them. Fact: If I smile while watching your video, it means there’s a 99.9% chance that I’m in love with you. P.S. The ending verse is so freaking cute.
It’ll be illegal for me to not post my favorite dance video of 2017 so here it is.
Stop being so pretty, I can’t post enough of your pictures and videos, y’know!! Love ya, guys!
