Big Bang is one of the most notable Korean boybands who has gone international. The members are G-Dragon (the leader), TOP, Tae Yang, Dae Sung and Seung Ri. I’ve been a fan since their song Lies captivated me. I think they have a unique style and they are not afraid to explore and experiment with a lot of different styles. Apart from the style, each of the members also has a unique and distinctive vocal from one another which enriches their every song. We can always tell which member sings which part because of this uniqueness. What makes me adore this band more is their English fluency (some other Korean artists I know are poor in this and I can hardly understand what they are saying when they speak/sing in English).

Big Bang’s uniqueness is very apparent, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Recently, Big Bang makes a comeback with 3 music videos: Blue, Bad Boy and Fantastic Baby. I personally like Fantastic Baby the most because it’s more up-beat than the other two and it has a lot of energy in it.

BLUE

Blue is very mellow and it carries a deep feeling (see full lyrics here). The MV is beautifully directed and truly reflects the song.

BAD BOY

Bad Boy has a hip hop feeling to it, but it is still kinda sad and mellow (see the lyrics here).

FANTASTIC BABY

Fantastic Baby is, as I previously mentioned, up beat. It’s the kind of song that makes you want to move your body and dance to music. The lyrics is not as meaningful as Blue and Bad Boy (see the lyrics here), but I think the MV carries deep meanings if we look at it critically. Well I’m not going to discuss the meaning here, since I realize I lack the references to interpret the MV. Instead, let’s just enjoy the song and the gorgeous performance of 5 adorable guys >.<

Since the MV is so awesome, I am tempted to capture some scenes:

G-DRAGON looks like he represents the sin of pride

T.O.P is the coolest as always, and with all the blue, perhaps he represents the sin of sloth?

TAEYANG looks so fierce in this MV, making me think he represents the sin of wrath

DAESUNG is bound by chains in this MV, I’m guessing he represents the sin of envy

SEUNGRI seems to represent the sin of lust; I didnt capture the scene, but he is actually surrounded by the 4 girls on black tight outfits @__@

In the end, every man has his own throne and is ruling his own self~

Do you want to stop the music now? Well, I sure dont! ‘coz WOW! it’s FANTASTIC, BABY ^_^/
