K-Pop Group of the Day: Beast

Hello everyone! 🙂

Since I haven’t published posts from other segments, I’ve decided to make up for the lack of those posts by doing one today! 😀 The group I’ll be focusing on is Beast! I personally have been a fan of Beast for quite a long time, and although I guess I could still be considered one, I’m definitely not as obsessed with them as I was around 2011 or so (I believe that’s the year of my crazy fangirling haha :P). Either way, in homage of their success with Good Luck, let’s get to talking about the group! 

Favorite member? If you asked me this a few years ago (when I was obsessed with them), I would’ve answered Kikwang without hesitation. Now (that I’m not so obsessed with them), I’d probably have to say that I don’t have a solid favorite out of the group, but if I had to choose one I’d probably choose Yoseob because of his amazing singing. 🙂

Favorite song? Beast has so many awesome songs. Really. In fact, Good Luck is great too! 😀 Out of all their songs though, my favorite would have to be, hands down, Beautiful. It’s my favorite because this super catchy song made me become a fan of Beast, and with performances from it, I familiarized myself with the group. You definitely should listen to it if you haven’t already! It’s a different style (definitely) from Good Luck, which you might not be used to, but it’s nonetheless my favorite until now. 

One interesting detail/story about the group? I’d like to note that I’ve slightly broadened this question (which used to ask about one thing that sets the group apart) because I felt like I wanted a question in which I could expand on stories or details (as the question says haha) about that particular group, whether it be something I’ve experienced or I’ve seen online in a performance, concert, etc.! 🙂 So yeah, to answer this new question… Other than their amazing performances, I would have to say that an interesting story about the group is the concert I went to when they were in my area! I believe it was around 2011, if I’m not mistaken, so it was a little while back. Their performance was amaaazing, but Kikwang (who was my favorite member at the time) was injured, so he couldn’t really perform 😦 He just sat in a chair instead haha! It was actually a United Cube…Concert? Something like that haha so 4minute, G.NA, and Beast came (because at that time, the other groups hadn’t debuted yet… I believe? I don’t know, I have a terrible memory :P). They were all really great and it was a good experience 🙂 especially because I was so close to the stage and the members hehe. It was sweaty and there was a lot of pushing, but I guess it was worth it since I was such a big fan of them at that time hehe. :3

Overall opinion? I really like this group! I would say that my loss of “interest” (for lack of a better word) in the group from when I was a hardcore fan (b2uty lol if you will) to now is not because of a decline in the quality of their music, but rather a personal change, in which I basically stopped keeping up with groups as much as I did before (which is true about MBLAQ as well if you see my other post. I became a fan of MBLAQ after I had lost interest in Beast :3). Nonetheless, their music is great and I’m happy as long as they release awesome songs as they have until now. 😀

Talking about Good Luck – Beast

Hi all! 🙂

Welcome back to It’s Time to K-Pop! ❤ Today I will be talking about Good Luck by Beast! I’ve already talked about No More, their other music video release, so go check that out as well if you’re feeling bored. :3 Because I’ve already ‘introduced’ them (so to speak) a few days ago, I won’t be doing that in this post (I wouldn’t want it to be repetitive :P) so let’s get to the release!

Song: This song is so awesome! 😀 It’s different than their other songs, or at least I get that impression, but by no means in a bad way. It’s so catchy and addicting that I found myself wanting to replay it over and over again :P. Although I love the whole song in general, my favorite part is before the chorus (more specifically from 1:35 to around 1:53) – daaaamn, sounds so good! I also really like the incorporation of the strings, and the instrumentation in general of this song. The best line in the whole song has to be “Up and down, feels like an elevator”, haha but jokes aside, Beast definitely doesn’t disappoint with this, and you best believe I’ll be putting this song on repeat for a long time. I’m going to have to control myself from repeatedly singing this song from now on 😛

Music Video: The music video looks great! I’m loving the strings introduction (makes the video seem more serious and intense :o) but I’d have to say that the highlight of the music video for me was definitely the choreography! I read in an article that the members thought this was their hardest dance routine yet, and I can definitely see that because it looks so cool (not that their other moves weren’t of course ;))! It’s definitely very well coordinated, and so awesome in combination with the song. There’s something so enticing about their moves, but I can’t pinpoint what it is. 😛 You can see it more clearly in this live performance of Good Luck (which is pretty impressive…. might I add :P). Am I the only one that thinks a dance version music video would be amazing?! Putting the dancing aside though, the video had awesome sets and lighting, and the production overall was so well done. The video was very fitting to the vibe of the song, which is something I always appreciate. I also really liked the editing of the video, and the rather gloomy, solemn look it (mostly) had. 🙂

Overall, I really like Beast’s comeback! 😀 The song and video both are great, and definitely show off a sophistication or allure (in a way) that is very particular to this group. I was once a huge fan of them (not saying that I’m not a fan now, but rather, toned down in intensity 😉 ) and this song definitely brings out the great qualities of the group. What did you think about this release? I’d love to know!
