I thought it might be a cute thing to post! Bangtan got me right in the feelings.

a piece of my soul dies every time i have to see that shirt-lifting move. not to overreact but it still makes me so mad whenever i think about it. like, here's a group with an image of being woke and talking about societal issues and then they completely disregarded that in order to sexually exploit some minor for cheap sensationalism (in true k-pop fashion). they didn't need that, the song and performance didn't need that. ugh

ignoring that and the tryhard hephap aesthetic (love seeing jin be like "why did they make us wear that?"), no more dream isn't a bad song. honestly, it kinda goes off, even now. tae fanboying out and singing along is low-key me (the move at 5:15 still gets me so pumped). they deserve props for trying to do smth different, even though they failed with certain parts

also can't help but snicker at mnet's attempt to insert themselves into the whole bts success saga there at the end, such a shameless plug lmao

No More Dream is a solid debut song, the extended version with the dance break they performed for their HYYH: Epilogue concerts is great! Their tryhard hephap styling was really terrible. I watched their MV when it first came out in 2013 and completely disregarded them until years afterwards because the combination of the shirt-lifting and the culturally appropriative styling left a terrible impression.

I feel the same about the shirt-lifting, and it's one of the reasons why I don't watch those first performances, they make me uncomfortable. If they wanted to leave an impression with their debut they already had Jungkook lifting Jimin, or those three solo parts at the end of Bulletproof
