B2ST 


This is a pretty tight performance of Fiction, by BEAST… or B2ST. When I first heard of them, it was when they collaborated with 4Minute. At that time I got the impression that they’d changed from B2ST to BEAST, but now it seems like they’ve gone back to the old spelling. Maybe it’s supposed to be something in between the two, but then it looks a bit like BaeST or B-swastika-ST :? .

I find B2ST to be pretty clever, since 2 is pronounced “i” (or “ee” for English speakers) in Korean (Sino-Korean number, native Korean is “dul”). But I’m going to stick with BEAST for file names. I’ll add B2ST as a tag though.

 

Park Bo-young seems to be pretty popular as a music video actress these days :) . First IU’s The Story Only I Didn’t Know and now BEAST’s Fiction.

I like this song. It’s good and mellow. I’ll post a live performance later (gotta post some more IU stuff first).

 

This video was requested by MrJigoku666. It’s BEAST’s latest.

I checked out some of their stuff after seeing them collaborate with 4Minute in Who’s Next, but based on the songs I’ve listened to they sound completely different from the collaborations. With 4Minute they had more of a hip hop-ish style, but their regular stuff has a pretty typical pop boy-band sound.

 

Here’s one of 4Minute’s performances of their new song HuH. The performance starts with a short intro version of Who’s Next featuring Beast.

Sorry for the recent lack of updates. I’ve been pretty busy and very tired. I’ve also had some technical problems making new videos. There are a few that I really want to post that just won’t cooperate :(

 

Soon after releasing Muzik in Japanese, 4Minute returns to the Korean market with the release of their second mini album Hit Your Heart, which will be out next week.

So-hyun seems to have cut her hair short! :shock:

I haven’t listnened to all the new songs yet, but you can check out Huh in the video above and the intro to the video is from the song Who’s Next (feat. Beast). The sound is a bit similar to Hyun-a’s solo song Change, only much better. I’ll listen to all the songs soon, but it sounds very promising so far.

I might post the Japanese version of Muzik later, but they sound much better in Korean.

 

Change (featuring Joon-hyung from Beast) is Hyun-a’s first solo single away from 4Minute.

I don’t know how this solo stuff will affect 4Minute, the group. Hopefully they’ll stick together. With songs of this type, I’m not worried that Hyun-a will become a solo star, leaving the rest of 4Minute behind :P

Ji-yoon is also going solo. It’ll be interesting to see how she compares to Hyun-a.
