those loud fanchats for dal shabet :') warms the heart

I know! So proud of this girl, but I'm torn inside because I have a feeling that her success will delay Supearls' debut even more, not to mention that 2NE1 SHOULD HAVE BEEN BACK BY NOW and is not >>

Also, I'm scared that she may end up like Miss A and have an amazing debut song but not be able to follow up with that. Coming 1st and being so successful at debut is really a double edged sword :(

I swear, Dripping Tears sounds like another song by After School or something...
goshipgurl 16th-Nov-2012 06:34 am (UTC)
mte
sounds like a after school/kahi reject

Sigh B1A4 made me so proud.
They were so good and the choreography was amazing.
chunsakuma 16th-Nov-2012 12:32 am (UTC)
B1A4 looked and sounded amazing, but the choreo doesn't fit AT ALL. It actually disturbed me and removed me from the gorgeous mood of the song, which is arguably one of, if not THE best song they've ever come out with.

C-CLOWN was SO good; they've improved a lot. I was shocked to see that some of the higher notes are actually Ray, but he pulled it off. OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG and I could slap him and Rome for that "Troublemaker"-esque almost-kiss that had me doing everything in my power not to scream when I was streaming this in the middle of the night last night -_-
___varying 16th-Nov-2012 12:45 am (UTC)
I completely agree about the B1A4 choreo. That and the fanchants/screaming (though their volume was def impressive).
chunsakuma 16th-Nov-2012 12:54 am (UTC)
lol Yeah, the fan response was def impressive, but it was also verging on out of hand.

I'm sure that for a different song (maybe something more upbeat and energetic) that choreo would be fantastic, but it's so jerky and jumpy that it clashes completely with the smooth and almost dreamlike qualities of the song.
___varying 16th-Nov-2012 01:07 am (UTC)
Yeah it actually started off pretty well but got jarring after the song kicked in (the use of the backup dancers too). Something less structured/exertive would probably have been more suitable.
palebluedot09 16th-Nov-2012 02:08 am (UTC)
The main reason it's sort of jerky is bc it's basically a bunch of simple moves put together to form a sort of elaborate choreography.

One thing I have definitely noticed over their comebacks is that they don't do standard kpop choreography. What I mean by that is most male groups sort have a similar way of dancing when they perform.. But can you really pinpoint a male group who does choreography like B1A4 does?

They tend to keep moves simple.

And who knows maybe it was bc they don't like doing things the normal way as evidenced by happy sounding sad songs.

Also the song really is more of an upbeat sad song. I wondered heavily what kind of choreography they were going to put with it bc I couldn't really imagine anything to go with it.

I personally loved it and thought it was their best choreography yet. But I could see why you and others may not like it. It is very jerky..

chunsakuma 16th-Nov-2012 02:17 am (UTC)
I actually quite like the choreography, just not combined with the song. The song and the choreography have completely different moods and feelings and putting the two together leaves the viewer with an uncomfortable feeling of dissonance imo.
susansaid 16th-Nov-2012 03:32 am (UTC)
I liked the choreography overall as well. The angular, sharp movements complimented the beats. However, I did find the choreography for the chorus to be too hard. It should have been softer.
ginevragirl 16th-Nov-2012 03:09 am (UTC)
Banas are very enthusiastic about their boys. Lol.
spread 16th-Nov-2012 12:32 am (UTC)
-DAL★Legends slayed, such a fun & cute song.
-I actually liked B1A4's performance, this is the first song of theirs that I favor (might have to acknowledge them now?)
-DayumBi performance was hot and magical, vocals were per usual from her.
-I'm sorry but Ailee should have won, this Lee Hi chick does nothing for me...
deerlike 16th-Nov-2012 04:06 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm kind of underwhelmed by Lee Hi, I was hoping for Ailee to win. :(
picklesnjam 17th-Nov-2012 12:35 am (UTC)
they both have amazing voices but ailee has better stage presence/is a better overall performer imo
21banged 16th-Nov-2012 12:34 am (UTC)
ok I'm too tired so I'm just gonna comment on the main ones that captured my attention today:

B1A4 - OMG MY BABIES I HAVE MISSED YOUUUUUU! They are so beautiful and all their voices are awesome. Bitter Gongchan has very few lines, and CNU needs his glasses back because they seriously magnified his eyes A LOT - I can't see his eyes without'em. The song is great, hope they manage to win something. Also, ICU Baro with your GD Crayon hair. It looks good.

Natthew's song is ok, but it isn't something that will get him much attention right away. It's nice, but not really memorable.

Hayi - Again, flawless in performance, but what is that outfit?! I feel bad for her, she seems so uncomfortable and awkward around the other idols, I hope Epik High is looking after her, though I'm sure she's awkward with them too. God bless the Kwon twins for making that encore stage pure perfection, I have missed their good looking asses <3

Noh Jihoon - His performance is pretty good, but that crotch dance is a turnoff -.-" I dunno if CUBE is just aiming to create an overall sexy image for all his artists, but yeah, this isn't really doing anything for me.

Son Dambi - The song is....well it's not what I expected. I was hoping for an electro-pop fast dance track, but eh, as long as Korea likes it. Also, is she lipsynching in this perf, because I swear she is a beat slow when moving her mouth. But then, some parts sound like they aren't synced, so it's left me confused. Has she done something to her face? I dunno, something seems different - maybe it's the haircut. Either way, she is looking GORGEOUS.

The Seeya - lol as bad as their name may be, their vocals are on point. I feel like the kid from SPEED wasn't really necessary, couldn't one of the girls rap it or smth? I feel like he kind of detracted from the whole perf. But KKS is always a bad decision maker, and I guess he can't accept that SPEED will never actually become successful, terrible as it is.
picklesnjam 17th-Nov-2012 12:42 am (UTC)
on the subject of son dambi its the video thats off not her. i think its her hair cut and her face looks a little more filled out
21banged 18th-Nov-2012 02:09 am (UTC)
Oh that hadn't occurred to me at all lmao
Her face does look a little more filled out, but I think her new do is the main reason she looks so different - to me anyways :D
cmyesaito 16th-Nov-2012 01:07 am (UTC)
B1A4 were so good! but the choreography is a bit weird
palebluedot09 16th-Nov-2012 01:58 am (UTC)
they always have unique choreography that is unlike other male kpop groups. mainly bc they really aren't the best dancers (although they have improved greatly).
tokadah 16th-Nov-2012 01:19 am (UTC)
FLAWFREE B1A4 AND C-CLOWN.

can't believe Maru sings those parts. I thought it was Ray lol

BANA at this point could just sing a long to the whole song, but please don't I could barely hear the boys.
ginevragirl 16th-Nov-2012 03:12 am (UTC)
Yeah I usually love their fanchants, but the staff went a little bit overboard when they wrote these. They didn't need as much as they had... the echoes to some parts were weird. And kinda covered the boys, especially channie since he isn't as loud as the other members.
tokadah 16th-Nov-2012 09:46 am (UTC)
I don't mind the fanchant but yeah went too overboard. it's the loud screaming tho. stop screaming! haha
lightframes 16th-Nov-2012 01:34 am (UTC)
I love Dripping Tears so much!

Epik High had a fun performance.

I like Straight Up more than Ice Cream.
dotdotdotting 16th-Nov-2012 02:23 am (UTC)
lol!! Jia dancing gangnam style was adobrable :D
yingmoon26 16th-Nov-2012 02:31 am (UTC)
was really look forward to B1A4's comeback stage!

the dance itself is good but not paired with the song. it just seems a bit off. the fanchants and screams were a bit too much :/ well more like mnet didn't lower the volume enough. could barely enjoy watching the performance
erisinia 16th-Nov-2012 02:50 am (UTC)
BILASA BBS omg let me love you

I wanted no choreography at all, but I was okay with what we got. B1A4 are seriously not awesome at dancing (although CNU is like head and shoulders above the rest, lol) and I generally like how they manage to work with their limitations and be distinctive. Most of their dances have relatively simple and loose moves, lots of moments of freezing or moving slowly then abruptly back to sharp moves again. It did seem kind of crowded with the backup dancers, but the bench was helpful. And bilasa are taller than average for a group, ha.

CNU's "Baby" adlib about gave me fits. Sooooo gooooodddddd.
in_noctem 16th-Nov-2012 03:06 am (UTC)
B1A4 YOU ARE SO PERFECT. They didn't look like they were complete failures at dancing, I'm so proud T_T And omg CNU I still hate the lack of glasses + low ponytail but-



C-Clown was really good as well but can they wear tank tops under their blazers ಠ◡ಠ And Maru, you are 15 years old. Stop it with that hip thrust thing.

OMG. I just realized that he didn't have any glasses on. How did I miss that?

sharpietoday 16th-Nov-2012 04:55 am (UTC)
Congratz on Hiya's 2nd win, but I really wanted Ailee to win. Tumblr was a hot mess that she didn't win.

Never really gotten into B1A4 much. Their new album really caught my attention. They did a great job on their comeback stage.

UGH BILASA BBS ;A;;;;
