iKON Comeback May 2017

After a year of break, they’re back with new concept–their two MVs show it all. I know, there’s many people who says that their new songs and or their concept are weird, not suit for them, bad taste, awkward music, etc. But, I kinda like it. This is only my short opinion. I’m not an expert. I’m a music lover.

The first time I saw the BLING BLING MV, I think of a futuristic-dark-street style (I don’t know how to say it better). The music video is eye-cathing. How they shot the angle or scene one by one are nice to see. For me. Unfortunately, I couldn’t see clearly each members’ face. Well, that might be part of their concept too–with all of the fashion concept. I don’t know. The choreography are easy to follow. The song and music itself is addictive. I like it. One thing that is funny for me is when they’re nodding their heads several time for no reasons ‘바보 가타’ like stupid (in good ways, of course).

And then, there’s B-DAY MV. I don’t know Korean really well, so I thought this music video is really weird (more weird than BLING BLING, in good ways) and funny. First, the choreograpy when they acted as a puppy? or a bee? I think that came out of nowhere. What’s the connection between title ‘B-Day’ and a bee? The visual graphic they used are surprising. Not only that, the heads of the bees are themselves. It was hilarious. If they’re really meant it as a ‘weird or strange or unusual’ concept, I think they got it right. The concept is really catchy.

Well, over all, I like their new concept for their comeback this time. As young generation, they’re not afraid to try and show something new, for themselves and to other people. Not afraid of being told that is a mistake or it is a bad move.
