By now, as fast as news travels with the internet and social media (specifically Snapchat in this case), most have heard about the controversy GOT7, specifically Yugyeom and BamBam has gotten themselves into. There’s a lot of white knighting of the ultimate defense of “oppa didn’t mean it” while people (mostly international fans) are outraged. And quite honestly, they have the right to be upset.
Here’s the small breakdown.
This post is super late and I apologize, but it’s finally here. I’ve been really busy as of late and just hadn’t found the time to sit down and analyze the video like I wanted to. But thanks to a recent bout of insomnia, I’ve had the chance to think and piece together my thoughts. There’s a lot more I have to say, but that post will have to wait because I want to piece them together properly to make a clearer puzzle.
But not to overload anyone with a lot of information, this post will serve more as a theory support than the analysis of Run that I was initially planning. It still holds some deep looking at aspects of the video, but not the same way I did with the On Stage Prologue. And I will link the Japanese MV of I Need You, into this as well.
I felt the need to put something up a little bit earlier than planned. If you follow me on Twitter, I mentioned I wouldn’t be putting up anything about the video until this coming Sunday the earliest. I need the initial shock of the MV to settle in before I can repeatedly watch it for an analysis. But since the video has come out, my MV Analysis of the prologue has shot up over 1k views in one day, which has NEVER happened. So thank you! For that, this post has been paid.
I’ve now watched the video twice and there are some things I noticed and will go back and look into more. But for now, here’s a list or even a small outline of what I’ve noticed during my two watches and will expand upon once I am able to sit down and piece together an analysis.
It’s been entirely too long and you’re coming back to a post like this. I know… but I am working on a personal post to make up for the silence.
In talking with the Seoulbeats family about VIXX and their BDSM concept, I wanted try and do an album review but more along the lines of a lyrical analysis, linking their lyrics to specific aspects of BDSM.
Now, BDSM is not something I know a lot about, in fact, I’ve heard of different kink terminology, but that’s the extent of my knowledge. I’m going to try to make this work as best as I can. I want to run with their theme of BDSM, so we are going to be taking this very strange journey… together.
Thank you to fyeah-vixx for the translation of the lyrics and differentequals about all this terminology I mainly never knew about until now.
Now that it is officially autumn, I find myself getting back into ballad and R&B artists. Pop and dance music season is over, see you late spring~ (says the person who went to BIGBANG’s concert yesterday). Thanks to Infinity Challenge, I discovered Zion.T, whom I’ve talked about on my blog before with Artist Impression and Artist Review. Today (or last night depending on how you look at it), he released a new single called No Makeup.
YG promised us we would be ringing in the New Year with iKON. But VIPs and BlackJacks know that unless we see a solid teaser, the date that’s announced isn’t the true release. So the seasons passed and now iKON is finally here with the change of seasons, giving us a mini album, which is only half of the present for their arrival.
So far we have My Type, Rhythm Ta, and Airplane. I want to do a general review about these three songs and iKON as a whole. First how I feel about iKON and then, MV reviews. Thanks to Colorcoded lyrics for the translations and color coding the members’ parts.
Welcome back to my final review of the Infinity Challenge Music Festival. Touching upon the last 3 performances and songs from the Festival.
Within a couple of a days, the BTS 화양연화 On Stage Prologue has become one of the most viewed entries on my site. First of all, thank you fellow A.R.M.Y. and non-A.R.M.Y. for coming to read the theory and I hope it answered your questions about the video. Some have shared the post in other places, and for that, I thank you. Every little bit helps.
I have seen the search terms which brought many here. Sadly some of the terms that linked my site didn’t happen to answer questions inputted in the search bar. So this post will be a follow up to some of the questions asked before the second part of the Most Beautiful Moment in Life happens in October.
Ironically, one of the MV Analysis I wanted to do was of BTS’s I Need You considering there were so many theories about the members in the uncut version. Well the 화양연화 On Stage – Prologue saved me some trouble and answers the question of what happened to the members at the end. But before that, here are some titles of the theories I had before and/or came across before the prologue debuted:
- All the members die.
- All the members except Jin and V die; maybe Rap Monster(?).
- All the members except Jin dies.
You’ll want to watch BTS’s I Need You if you’re not familiar or just for a refresher. Then read through the theories before you watch the prologue. By being a prologue, it is meant to come first. But remember, their album was called The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Pt. 1. So this is a prologue to part two and possibly an epilogue to part one. You have to close one chapter before continuing to the next.
Welcome back to Part 2 of the 2015 Infinity Challenge Music Festival. Change of plans, I was supposed to review the next two songs from the festival but I will only do one; Zion.T and Haha’s $ponsor. I will review the last 3 performances and songs in the 3rd and final part.
Zion.T and Haha’s $ponser
