wheee, it’s my first post! my name is lilu and i like burgers and chicken and koreans and i am going to be reviewing beast/b2st – breath! also known as soom/sum, which… just means breath in korean w/e w/e
I LOOOOVE THIS SONG. it was the second beast song i ever heard and i still loooove it. aaah beast, i’m becoming such a huge beast fan recently and i feel like i am betraying my other bands ;___; shock and breath on repeat alllll day, y e p sounds good to me! i love this video though, the song itself is pretty… dark?… (that doesn’t feel like the right word to use but screw it) and the video matches up with that perfectly. i am awful at describing and explaining stuff though so i’m gonna move straight onto the scoring~
costuming: 1 point
okay first this is something i need to vent for myself
HYUNSEUNG’S HAIR OH MY GOD noooo keep it straight ;_; the wavy look does not work!! AND WHAT ARE YOU WEARING ON YOUR CHEST IN THE FOREST SCENES WHAT EVEN
WELP, ignoring my personal biases, the stylists did a good job on them imo! nothing too crazy, plain but stylish, dark to match the video, it all fits nicely~ i’m only giving one point for this though because HYUNSEUNG MY BABY ;_____;
effects: 2 point
fire and mist and rain and snow and snazzy camera angles – all approval from me B)
continuity: 2 point
nothing to fault here – despite having two different ‘settings’, so to speak, they both blend in and out well and the video flows nicely. even things like RANDOM GIRLS PLAYING STRING INSTRUMENTS IN THE BACKGROUND WHAT didn’t interrupt with the video too much~ kudos to them!
choreography: 2 points
i liked it! the dance moves fit the song well, especially at the ‘breathe in breathe out’ moments. beast never really have the most intricate choography but it always works for them, and i much prefer the dancing in this video to other ones they’ve done~
relativity: 2 points
the whole video was gritty and fabulous, and the emphasis of the breathing in the choreography was perfect for the song. i’m… still not sure what i think of the random oxygen mask though WHAT IS WITH THAT
overall score: 9 Gs out of 10!
