They sound good; song is cute but boring. Again, YJ sounds good but his voice kind of stays in the same place for the whole song, so~~ Still, I'm glad he got to do something on his own! ILU DH, but TSE don't think I haven't noticed YJ's ridiculously few lines in No Mercy and Hajima. >:|

TS announces specifics then releases things like an hour later; this pleases me. Even if b.a.p fans are spoiled, I prefer this to the endless waiting some other fandoms have to endure. (Of course, it helps that TS only really has Secret and b.a.p going, but still....)

A little more: they look cute in the vid too, but even if YJ is one of the more naturally cute members I can't help experiencing some second-hand embarrassment for him here. Sunwha looks v natural though.

Tumblr now is not the time for you to be down I want to spam this post :'(((((

And their fancafes got updated with 2013 and people are saying it's a concert? TS you're killing us.

Don't get my hopes up...A TS Family concert would be amaaaazing. When does Untouchable come back? And will Plan-G be actually out by then? TS needs to quit playing games with my heart (except not because I adore them so).
in_noctem 27th-Dec-2012 04:53 am (UTC)
I just googled and had no idea Plan G was New Champ and Zinsuk! Untouchable should be out mid next year? That will be a good time for a concert plus debuting a new group. Oh man if the Asian tour rumours are true I would pay good money to see that.
clayray3290 27th-Dec-2012 04:36 pm (UTC)
Yup yup! I mean, Plan G has been releasing stuff kinda? But I don't know if the songs they've released count as like an actual debut? I don't have the faintest idea what TS's plan for them actually is.

Ah, that's right. I'm so excited for Untouchable to come back!

Ooh, you think that they're going to debut the new girl group next year? I dunno, it would've just been a year since B.A.P's debut! That's so soon!

If the Asian tour rumours are true...Sigh, I am still not in Asia. But perhaps I can find a way...Where have you been seeing these rumours? How credible do you think they are or are they just speculations?

The song itself is nothing particularly innovative, but it is absolutely darling. I'm really glad Sunhwa got to use more of her upper register, because her clear tone really suits it, and I love how she sounds in this. Youngjae's voice takes less of the spotlight compared to Sunhwa's, but he sounds lovely as well.

Also, I really really love the hands in the music video. It was a simple device, but really effectively conveyed the adorableness of this music video.

It seems this video was intended just to be a little gift for the fans, and I think it appropriately accomplishes that and is quite a lovely present indeed!

Sunhwa sounds really good, she had certainly been keeping busy with all these collabs and variety
bubblyshades 27th-Dec-2012 04:19 am (UTC)
Awww, I really like this song. It's really sweet and soothing, perfect for a walk or daydreaming hahaha. Their voices go well together.
ninyafreak 27th-Dec-2012 04:56 am (UTC)
the video is so adorable q______q
it's not the kind of song that I expected, but hey, I'll take whatever I can get from Youngjae <3333
joong_ki 27th-Dec-2012 05:34 am (UTC)

He is so adorable in this. I wonder how they got him to act cute. He looked like he wanted to cringe at times.

IKR, then again he's so naturally cute that it makes me laugh when he does aegyo. And Sunhwa probably did this every time he got embarrassed

joong_ki 27th-Dec-2012 07:46 am (UTC)

He is! Too bad he gets easily embarrassed when he does aegyo.

I would love to see more of this:

I love your icon by the way.
in_noctem 27th-Dec-2012 08:05 am (UTC)
I wanted to say thank you but I just cropped it lol and yes I need more of Youngjae's fluffy self and these hearts (or at least they look like hearts) he's always doing

Edited at 2012-12-27 08:06 am (UTC)
joong_ki 27th-Dec-2012 09:36 am (UTC)

Oh don't worry, they are all from tumblr. Lol. I was just complementing. :). I believe that's a heart, he doesn't seem to have a large variety of aegyo poses.
___varying 27th-Dec-2012 08:09 am (UTC)
Aww Sunhwa ;~; I wonder how many takes they had to do because of Youngjae being self-conscious/cracking up at himself lol.
joong_ki 27th-Dec-2012 09:42 am (UTC)

Probably a lot. Lol.I would love to see the BTS, it's probably filled with YoungJae doing some variations of this:

Sunhwa probably also had to teach him some aegyo. They are so cute together though.
modestgoddess79 27th-Dec-2012 05:33 pm (UTC)
there is nothing more adorable than male idols that hate acting cute and are forced to do it anyways
kurdoodle 27th-Dec-2012 06:03 am (UTC)
THIS IS REALLY SWEET AND REFRESHING AND UGH Sunhwa's voice is so clear & beautiful here. And Youngjae's voice complements hers very well.

taiyouhana 27th-Dec-2012 07:10 am (UTC)
i really can't look at Sunhwa right, she looks like my aunt did in her younger days and it's a bit creepy, to say the least. Especially when she smiles.

she's still beautiful imo, and Youngjae is giving me so much second-hand embarassment otl he's too cute ;__;
minka_g 27th-Dec-2012 07:34 am (UTC)
I'm in a state of shock. This completely ruins the illusion I happily had of B.A.P. being full of badass mofos who'd take to your car with a sledgehammer if you so much as looked at them the wrong way...

This is why I never look groups/members/hotties up; ignorance really is bliss.

lol, you're late to the party and must have missed crash/stop it somehow, too.... XD
wondergaze 27th-Dec-2012 07:35 am (UTC)
Sunhwa's voice <3 The song is so pretty and light!
___varying 27th-Dec-2012 08:04 am (UTC)
Haha first thought was it sounds a little like a mixed-group version of Starlight Moonlight. (Then Sunhwa really started doing the Starlight Moonlight choreo lolol.) xD I really like it - even if it's not very substantial it's light/fluffy/lovely for what it is (and their voices actually really suit this sort of song!). It's great that they're giving the main vocalists chances to shine since they might not be able to do that in their own groups. <3

MV is so qt awww.
supplanter 27th-Dec-2012 02:06 pm (UTC)
... what? Leaving Youngjae aside, Sunwha is so obviously not Secret's main or lead vocalist.
___varying 27th-Dec-2012 02:39 pm (UTC)
Oops. Vocalist.
Though tbqf I always had the impression that Jieun was the lead, Hyosung/Sunhwa were mains (Hyosung doing double duty as lead dancer) and Zinger was the rapper. It turns out that I'm wrong on all counts. /orz

supplanter 27th-Dec-2012 03:09 pm (UTC)
Haha, that happened to me with Brave Girls during their What Have You Been Up To promos--to be fair, the one I thought was main (but was vocal or subvocal) seemed to be doing all the high notes, while the one who was actually main (but I thought was just a vocal) was singing most of the chorus, but the camera barely seemed to focus on her and half the time with choruses there's more than one voice and everyone mouths along anyway. orz
___varying 27th-Dec-2012 05:33 pm (UTC)
Hahaha wait I know where I screwed up/confused you. I mixed up 'lead' and 'main'. Main should be the guy doing the flashy big notes/ad libs, lead the guy on-the-ground, right? Ofc I was still wrong re: Sunhwa's role, but at least I wasn't completely off the mark yay.

Sigh, they should just call them Singer #1 and Singer #2 and be done with it (decidedly less glamorous-sounding, but still).
supplanter 27th-Dec-2012 10:25 pm (UTC)
Well, I am fairly certain the ranking as far as acknowledged vocal ability is:
main > lead > vocal > sub

In practice, classically I think main gets the choruses (because it's the most important part that everyone knows and therefore the best!!! this I fail to comprehend, because while it's the part everyone learns, it's also the part everyone sings along with so they can't hear you?), lead gets verses, and the rest get... dregs. Glory notes go to the main/lead who can hit them/who a given composer feels like featuring, I guess. But of course this doesn't always play out in practice (in W & P YJ+DH sing both chorus and most of the verses; in NM JU+HC "sang" the chorus; in Crash YJ only got a little of the chorus but it's pretty much DH; in Hajima it's all DH again), and as the year has gone on, Daehyun's been pretty much locked in, while Jongup has been improving, and I think Himchan's been pretty much relegated to sub-sub-sub-sub-vocal. Youngjae needs to get more to sing though or continuing to call both him and DH the same tier of vocalist will get continually embarrassing. >:|

(And of course, it's still kind of elective... I imagine a sub-sub-sub-vocal (... Hyuna) who is popular with the fans might still get verses because it will make those fans happy. Not that that has happened with, what, Sungyeol in Infinite. >.>;;; But I've felt all along that b.a.p has one vocalist too many, given the emphasis on rapping, to make line distribution at all sane.)
___varying 28th-Dec-2012 09:23 am (UTC)
Thank you heh. xD Himchan... sigh. I doubt he's ever going to get many lines. Though maybe he can find his own niche somewhere (emceeing? variety?) - in any case, not solely being 'the visual' might make him more comfortable in his own skin. IA that there's an overabundance of vocalists, though I guess that that's necessarily the case when you have all these other roles which need filling and said members then need to DO SOMETHING when the song is actually being performed.

While I adore Jae's voice, I do think Dae is the better singer, technique-wise and live, and he's also improved a ton since they started out, which might account for him being given more lines (though he could also have improved BECAUSE he's been given more lines; they also mentioned something about allocation being determined by the style of the lines in question so the Dae-bias might *crosses fingers* not be permanent?).

That being said, IA that Jae deserves more; his tone is really lovely and having Dae carry the entirety of Stop It was definitely unnecessary (+ he couldn't sing live every single line he was given, which is clear indication that the line distrib's gone wrong somewhere lol). I wonder if this project is TS' way of making it up to Jae/if it was a trade-off in the first place.
purring_feline 27th-Dec-2012 09:58 am (UTC)
The MV is super adorable albeit I cringed a little at Youngjae's awkward self and the song is not really my cup of tea. Sunhwa sounds great but I'd love to hear Youngjae in more demanding pieces!

Also, OP, a friend of mine was telling me something about an Asian Tour in 2013 but I haven't seen any sources yet!
in_noctem 27th-Dec-2012 11:26 am (UTC)
Me too! I've been waiting for a credible source before getting my hopes up C:
sakura_holic 27th-Dec-2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
The song is cute. Sunhwa did a heck of a job teaching Youngjae to those cute things! I bet he was crying on the inside xD
supplanter 27th-Dec-2012 05:26 pm (UTC)
Yeah, he didn't even have the other members to suffer alongside him for moral support! :(

(But maybe they were there while they were recording to laugh at himfor moral support? :3 )
sakura_holic 4th-Jan-2013 01:45 pm (UTC)
I think Youngjae wouldn't have let them come since I know he cringes the most when people be so cutesy. Especially on Himchan's aegyos xD
But the members probably these him if they have watched the video
xxmannequin 27th-Dec-2012 06:55 pm (UTC)
Omg, this gorgeous thing.
jongiu 28th-Dec-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
all i noticed throughout the mv is youngjae's lips, not even in a bad/perverted way, his lips are just plump as hell and i find them fascinating.

the song was nice, and mv was cute for the parts i did see.
