Bangtan Boys are bulletproof

Bangtan Boys are probably the Best Rookie Boy Group of this year. I mean just from the teaser photos - to get to know the members - and the teaser mv for their debut song, they immediately gain your attention. The good thing is that you won't regret it.
Bangtan Boys came to the K-pop scene with their debut single '2 cool 4' skool and the title track 'No More Dream'. 'We Are Bulletproof' must be the best song in their single. It's so powerful and addicting that you will end up listening to it on repeat. I believe this is why they composed it. There is also a mid tempo hip hop song called 'I Like It'. No comments since the title says it all. One nice featuring in this single is that it contains a skit in which you can hear the boys talking. It's probably scripted since it's called 'Skit' but anyways it's fun and amusing listening to the boys! 'No More Dream' the track they decided to promote is the best song to get to know them and to steal the spotlight and make it shine only on them.
About the mv now. Since our boys are '2 cool 4 skool' they stole the school bus and tried to get away but they crashed into a bunch of carton boxes, so they got off the school bus and decided to join their friends. Although in the beginning the did normal stuff - just riding on bikes and doing skateboard - in the end they pretty much destroyed everything. As a result, police caught them. Or maybe not?
The choreography is flawless. The parts : '거짓알이야 you are such a liar', see me see me ya' when they point their shoulders and 'lalalalala' when they slide are awesome! The highlight of the dance is when the members form a line and Jimin, with the help of JungKook, is walking on the menbers.
Releasing also their showcase in which they perform their songs, you will have the chance to see that they don't seem rookies, their attitude, style and presence confirm that, and they also do a small interview to promote their album and to get to know them even more. Plus their entertainment released a bts video of the mv making and a dance version to keep their fans happy. Extra info : Their fan club name is A.R.M.Y. Perfect, awesome and most suitable fan name!
What is left is simple : Just press the play button.

Henry is trapped

To tell you the truth I was surprised when I heard that SM will debut a new solo male artist. I was wondering who could it be, someone who we know or not? So when I found out that is Super Junior - M's Henry I couldn't hide my happy feelings!
I'm so excited that SM gave Henry a chance to shine! This kid has a lot of talents in his sleeve ( cooking, dancing, playing the guitar, the piano, the violin and he speaks Korean, Chinese and English extremely well ) so it's nice for Elfs to see him as a solo artist.
Let's start with his mv and the title track 'Trap'. Both the song and the mv shows his amazing dance, singing and piano skills. In the beginning of the mv we see Henry in a luxurious room - notice the burning ceiling - playing effortlessly a nice melody on the piano. I think we all agree to just let him playing the piano and doing nothing else. Then as the song starts he plays the piano again but now in a modern studio with dancers accompany him. As the mv continuous he walks and dance on the piano and dancing along with the dancers. The choreography might look simple but it actually isn't. Henry has this-free-hip-hop-vibe in him and thus he makes everything looking really easy when it's not. In the mv Henry is trying to forget his ex-girlfriend but he has a difficult time since every little thing reminds him of her until he finds the courage and the will to get away and leave nothing else but lashes beside him. 
But if you think that's all, think again. If you are a SHINee or a Super Junior fan then you probably don't wanna miss this mv because it features Taemin and Kyuhyun!The best dancer and the best vocalist in a best debut song. How better can it be?

Taemin and Kyuhyun, bring their own talents in the mv and song. Taemin shows his amazing dance skills, even in a short period of time and Kyuhyun makes the song even better with his incredible voice.
Henry's 1st mini album 'Trap' is definitely a worth buying album. All the songs are amazing and it's really difficult to choose which one is better. Listen to '1-4-3', ( a new way to say I love you ) 'My Everything', 'Holiday','Ready To Love' and the english song 'I would' and try to choose one too. I have to give props to SM Entertainment. They make good promotions with their artists and they provide best quality albums.
Don't waste any time. Press play and get ready to get trapped with Henry.
