Catch Up Review #4 – 2PM, 2AM, Beast

Once again, another KPOP catch up review with the biggest boy groups and bands in the industry today. And there are so much, that I had to split this category into 3 or 4 other reviews (which will be released gradually). On with the reviews:

Go Crazy – 2PM

One of the biggest boy groups in South Korea finally made their comeback with a new album. I liked the song, however their comeback was not successful overall.  However, that is a completely other story. Go Crazy kind of mirrors Hands Up, which to date, I believe is their most successful song, however I really expected a little more. The vocals are great and the song really wanted me to dance, but it just sound generic and really does not set the bar higher for future releases. The music video is a little boring. I really was not that amazed with guys flying across the moon and stuff like that. The dance was a little more freer and I thought it was nice to have a “random” choreography. It adds to the more fun and crazy side of the song. 6/10

Over The Destiny – 2AM

Let’s look at the opposite side. 2AM recently made their comeback with Over The Destiny and I honestly have no idea why I am reviewing this. But anyway, the song is a ballad. I am not a big fan of 2AM (mainly because I never got into them), but this song has a hint of catchiness in the chorus). Correct me if I am wrong, but Changmin has a pretty nice voice and this song showcases the fact he has a nice voice. As for the music video, I am a little confused regarding the actual concept, but at the same time, it was a very interesting concept. The dude was running to his main goal (the girl), but everything around him was dropping from the sky. Some things are not really stuff you find in the sky that is there to drop, hence it was a pretty interesting video to watch. Just the slow motion… 6/10

12:30 – Beast

This has to be one of the greatest ballad dance songs ever. The vocals in this song were superb. Like I don’t think, while listening to the song, that I was disappointed in it any one bit. Yoseob had an amazing voice during the song and all the other members. Rapping is not really a great combination with such a slow song, but Junhyung pulled it off really well. The instrumental itself was really amazing as well. As for the music video, it was boring to watch. Great a clock, great a scene between two characters arguing. It just was too cliche. Whereas on the other hand, the cinematography was amazing. The dance was pretty good as well, though it did mimic the cliche clock moves that all the clock concepts have had, but the dance here was really well done. 9/10

So yeah, that is my views on the comebacks by such big names. But hey, you probably are wanting to know where the biggest group Super Junior review is coming? Cause they too are a very big boy group as well and widely popular. Well guess what? It is the next review! Super Junior reviews everywhere!!!
