Boyfriend (보이프렌드) : Witch

album coverOMG! It’s been so long since I had written a review for a music video. I just have to do it this time. It’s Boyfriend and their comeback is so amazing. So I feel that I really have to do it this time. The next MV review would probably long after this. (P.S. This MV review would most probably be biased. LOL!)

Boyfriends’ Witch is from their 3rd mini album, Witch, released 13th of October 2014 (TODAAAAY!!!!).

Teasers

Let’s start with their track list for the album. This was the first to be out and tease the fans. Well, I think Donghyun mentioned that they are preparing for a comeback but this is the first thing that confirmed that.

When these were uploaded, I really wondered why each were paired with each other. I mean, you could understand if they paired YoungKwang together because they are twins, JeongSeong ’cause they even got in the news before for being JeongSeong, and DongWoo ’cause… they are the appa and eomma of the group (?). Anyway, aren’t they gorgeous?! Love love!

Red riding hood concept.

At first I thought they were vampires. It looks like that. But I saw some article or a post that says they are wolves and I believed it. It makes better sense ’cause red riding hood concept then there’s the wolves. Yeah.

Some snapshots from the teaser. The human and wolf versions of Boyfriend! bf_dh bf_hs bf_jm bf_ymbf_km bf_mw And another teaser for White Out. I think it’s like the Obsession era where they released the Obsession and Alarm MVs. Yeah. Something like that. The feel of the White Out is also just like the Alarm. So I thought of that.

When I heard the teaser of Witch, my mind goes #boombaraboom!!! Haha! The track was repeating in my head. Lol!

.

MV Check

So I have been waiting last Sunday for the MV that my heart pounds so fast. And when it was released, I really went #boombaraboom! Haha! Watching the MV tired me ’cause my feels won’t stop. Haha!

Ok. Bias aside. If I’m not that into Boyfriend and I’m not excited for it and I’m not used to all Korean feels, I would rate it 6 or 7 out of 10. But I’m not that! So I’m rating it 9.98 out of 10. The .02 is for that red riding hood who hurts Boyfriend especially Hyunseong oppa. Grrrrr!!!!

So for those who are wondering what the story line of the MV is about, this is what I think it is.

So there is our leader Donghyun. He found this crime scene and tries to investigate it.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h01m40s64 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h02m02s33 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h02m05s53 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h03m03s95

After some time, he thinks about it and left.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h03m44s9He came back to their quarters and there’s the Boyfriend with their eyes lighting up in the dark.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h03m53s96 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h03m57s130

He came back with a newspaper with him, looking and feeling so angry/sad/in pain.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h04m05s203 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h04m09s5In anger, he threw the newspaper to the group for them to read.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h04m14s51

Kwangmin picked it up and the rest of the members went close to him, curious.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h04m31s207

It reads, “A corpes with BF mark has been discovered again, —- the red riding hood also has been found on the spot.”

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h04m35s254

He looks at his own mark. The news is a warning to them.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h04m53s190vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h04m46s111 He crumples and throws the newspaper in anger, just like how Donghyun was angered.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h05m01s12 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h05m33s75 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h05m42s163The members are either angry, worried or sad because of the news.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h05m46s205Another member with the BF mark went on his own to think.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m03s102And that is Hyunseong (oppppppaaaa~~~~). He reads the news and became devastated.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m06s153 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m09s186 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m12s214He was about to left the rooftop and go inside their quarters but…vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m27s101

…the red riding hood is there!!!

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m31s140

He noticed the presence but…

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m38s214 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m49s40

…the red riding hood is fast to move and attacks Hyunseong.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h06m55s137 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h08m41s180I think members found Hyunseong and they had a flashback because of the event. They were in their quarters in human mode.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h10m18s97

A girl appeared and entered.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h10m30s231 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h10m35s29It seems that Boyfriend knows this girl and welcomes her.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h10m38s61But the girl shushed them. She looks outside for some suspicious thing and the members became curious.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h10m42s88 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h10m57s248She looks outside…

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h11m00s28…and smirks as if planning something bad.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h11m15s162She says hi to everyone.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h11m28s41Meanwhile the members are having fun with the girl, Donghyun reads a book, How to be a Human Being by Mrs. Burton Harrison.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h11m48s236vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h11m33s94 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h11m35s125

The girl went to Donghyun to check on him but he hides the book.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m03s117 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m08s189vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m11s217

Unknown to the members, the girl hides something from them. She’s the red riding hood who kills them!!!

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m15s7

Back to the present, I think they already found out since Hyunseong had an encounter with her already. She left him wounded and hurt.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m22s71 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m26s117

He tries to give the message that was from the girl/red riding hood. It says, “I’ll be waiting at the rooftop. Your friend…”

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m30s151 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m33s185 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m36s222

Donghyun got angry to the red riding hood and crumpled the paper. (They like crumpling paper, don’t they?! :D) They left and went to the rooftop to meet the person who harmed Hyunseong.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m39s254 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h12m40s10

It is fool moon outside and I think they transformed from being humans to wolf state.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h13m21s154 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h13m27s204 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h13m34s29 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h13m37s52 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h13m44s127 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h13m47s165 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m08s115 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m27s44

Personal thought: I think HS is the most wild of them. LOL!

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m31s82 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m34s116 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m40s172 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m48s255

In the rooftop awaits the red riding hood. Boyfriend came and surrounded her.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m51s42 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m54s65 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h14m58s111 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m02s144 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m03s161 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m05s180 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m06s190 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m13s254 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m15s23 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m17s45 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m19s65

Hyunseong started attacking (See?! He is the wildest one! lol!) but was immediately thrown even with just the cape (I don’t know how he did that turn but it is not just a turn. And I think how he fell hurts). Everyone tried to attack but just like Hyunseong, they failed and fell down.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m54s161 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m56s177 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h15m57s185 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m01s223 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m02s235 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m03s242 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m07s27 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m08s46 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m11s71 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m14s97 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m19s153 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m25s211 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m27s235 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m32s24 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m33s35 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m36s70 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m39s93 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h16m58s30 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m01s50 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m02s61 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m02s72 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m07s115 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m15s203 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m18s226 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m22s16 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m35s141 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h17m37s166 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h18m00s135

After killing off (Kill? Maybe hurt but not dead. I don’t think they’ll die with that.) the wolves, the red riding hood puts her cape on again and left Boyfriend dead.

vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h18m07s204 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h18m09s224 vlcsnap-2014-10-13-21h18m16s38

In short, Boyfriend had this girl they welcomed so dearly but in the end, they found that it is the one who would hurt them. And yeah. Eventually, they really got hurt.

I think it’s like how love sometimes is. Maybe that is what the MV is trying to portray. You welcome a person in your heart. And there will always be someone who would just hurt you and leave so broken.

.

Dance Check

I’m so happy they released it early. I especially like the part where all of them went down in circle as if they were sliding and immediately went up. And then Donhyun hits the high notes. Lol! And I also love the curtains! It’s like, it’s them. When someone uses curtains again, it is inevitable that someone will mention Boyfriend. LOL! It’s like mic stands for Shinee, scarves for B1A4, paws for T-ara, lips ring for APink, bars for Miss A, sofa for Sunmi, and lollipops for Girls Generation. You get the point.

.

Style Check

Boyfriend has 5 sets of clothes in this MV. So far, I’ve seen them perform with 3 of it.

Lyrics Check

From what I understand in the lyrics, the person knows that he’ll be hurt. But for him, it’s better to be hurt than to be apart from the person he loves. As long as he’s by the side of that person, he’s fine.

Lyrics in Hanggul

Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)

거짓이라고 해도 좋아 진심이 아니라면 어때
지금 넌 내 품에 있어 그게 중요해
몇 번이고 너라면 당해줄 나니까
소유할 수는 없지만 만질 순 있는걸

달콤한 입술 사이로 내 이름을 부르면
결국 또 너랄까 아파도 난 너랄까
니 손이 닿을 때 마다 숨을 멎은 채
네게 날 바칠 맹셀해

►넌 거칠어서 예뻐 넌 위험해서 끌려
매번 다칠걸 다 알면서 난 니 장난에 놀아나
못 할 것도 없어 내 전부라도 줄게
너의 곁에 그저 곁에 그거면 돼

Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)
Na na na na na na na na na
Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)

rap►말하자면 이런 거지 내가 이젠 부담된다거나
슬픈 표정으로 우리 그만 하자던가
라는 식으로 날 불안하게 만들 때 마다 이상하게 너에게 더 끌리지 난
넌 끼가 다분 yeah, 날 능숙하게 조련해, 올 듯 말듯 미치겠다구
넌 알어 난 널 못 떠나 아무리 힘껏 던져도 다시 돌아오는 부메랑처럼

멈춰보려고 다짐 해봐도 니가 날 부르면
가던 걸음을 돌려서 너에게 달려가

천사의 얼굴로 매번 나를 흔들고 있어
착한 몸매랄까 여인의 향기랄까
니 입을 맞추면 한껏 고갤 숙인 채
다시 날 바칠 맹셀해

►넌 거칠어서 예뻐 넌 위험해서 끌려
매번 다칠걸 다 알면서 난 니 장난에 놀아나
못 할 것도 없어 내 전부라도 줄게
너의 곁에 그저 곁에 그거면 돼

Cause your body goes boom bara boom (6x)

날 이용해도 좋아 갖고 놀아도 좋아
결국 망가질 줄 알면서 난 너란 애를 택한걸
전분 아녀도 돼 널 반만 가져도 돼
너의 곁에 그저 곁에 그거면 돼

Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)

Lyrics Translated

Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)

It’s fine if it’s a lie, so what if you’re not being real
You’re in my arms now, that’s all that matters
To you, I’ll let myself fall countless times
I can’t have you, but I can touch

When you call my name with those sweet lips
It’s you after all, even if it hurts, I pick you
Every time your hand touches, my breath stops
And I promie to sacrifice myself to you

►You’re rough, that’s what makes you attractive
I know I’ll get hurt, but I let you play games with me
There’s nothing I can’t do, I’ll give you my all if I have to
Just by your side, next to you, that’s all I want

Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)
Na na na na na na na na na
Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)

rap►It’s kind of like, maybe you’re sick of me now
You say goodbye with a sad face
Everytime you make me nervous like that
It’s weird, I feel even more attracted to you
You have some talent yeah, you train me well
Coming or not, it drives me crazy
You know that I can’t leave you, no matter what how far you push
Like a boomerang that always returns

I promise myself I’ll stop until you say my name
I turn right around and run back to you

With a face of an angel, you shake me up each time
Your nice body, the scent of a woman
When you kiss me, I drop my head
And swear myself to you again

►You’re rough, that’s what makes you attractive
I know I’ll get hurt, but I let you play games with me
There’s nothing I can’t do, I’ll give you my all if I have to
Just by your side, next to you, that’s all I want

Cause your body goes boom bara boom (6x)

You can use me, you can play me
I knew you’ll break me, but I chose you anyway
I don’t need all of you, even just a part is enough
Just by your side, next to you, that’s all i want
Ow yeah

Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)
(Boom boom bara boom)
Na na na na na na na na na
Cause your body goes boom bara boom (3x)
