After a relatively quite month, October happened. Comebacks and debuts galore! This top 10 was a difficult one for me to rank, but it came together in the end… What was your favourite MV for October? Could you choose?
Top MV’s Korea
1. Boyfriend – Witch
Coming in at number 1 for October had to be Boyfriend with their hot comeback, “Witch”. I have to say I love the new direction Boyfriend are going with their two latest comebacks. I really hope they keep up the theme of “storybook” plots. ‘Obsession’ gave us ‘Peter Pan’ and now ‘Witch’ gives us ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. I really enjoyed this MV. The dace is great with the moving red curtains and the costumes are hot. I really did enjoy the multitude of hot suits Boyfriend wore in all their live stage. As I said earlier, the plot for the MV was loosely based on ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ with the boys playing the “Big Bad Wolves”. They appear to just want to live normal human lives, however a girl with a red hood sets them us and takes them out in a bit of a lame fight scene. If you are a fellow Boyfriend fan you should definitely check out this video. Boyfriend got their first ever win on ‘The Show’ for ‘Witch’ and it made me soo happy.
2. Super Junior – This is Love ft. Evanesce
Super Junior came back with their follow up song for ‘Mamacita’ this month, ‘This is Love’. Once again SM utilise the one shot technique to film and it works really well in this MV using different scenes around the circular room. I thought it was very clever, mixing up the members and showing off their good looks – I mean talents. Suju also released ‘Evanesce’ in MV form this month which I was super pleased about as I loved it on the album. It’s filmed using the same set as ‘This is Love’ but is much more angsty with dead leaves and what have you. Both songs are great and a good follow up to ‘Mamacita’. The only problem is that each member released their own album and now I need them all.. Don’t know whyyyyyy! Tell me whyyyyy!!!
3. BTS – War of Homemone (호르몬 전쟁)
It’s fair to say my BTS feels are pretty epic at the moment and ‘War of Hormone’ was the icing on the cake. I just love everything there is about this MV. The styling is the best, the filming is clever and the boys are just beyond cute. Did I mention V had pink and purple hair? Coz V totally has the cutest pink and purple hair ever! The greatest thing about this promotion however were the live stages with the cutest choreography, which V totally owned, and all the different solo moments for each live stage. Suga’s probably broke me the most (Check it out around the 2.55 mark – but prepare yourself to be overwhelmed). I just loved this so much and am so sad their promotions are over.
4. VIXX – Error
I feel a little bad putting VIXX down to 4th, but it had to be. VIXX really have an ability to take a song to a whole other level – which is once again shown with their comeback this month. ‘Error’ really is something else and definitely a song I can not get sick of listening to. It really was a good comeback and I’m please VIXX were recognised for it with a few wins on music shows. I liked the MV. VIXX showed us something new with the whole android concept. Hongbinnie was just perfect acting in this MV. I enjoyed the styling (we just won’t mention the thing on Ravi’s head) and the choreography was great.
5. Beast -12시 30분 (12:30)
Beast are back again, but this time with a pop ballad. This is okay with me for I firmly believe Beast are one of the most vocally talented groups out there. I really do like ’12:30′. The song is just perfect and the boys look great. I don’t entirely get the plot, but I get the bitter angsty vibes and the whole concept that at 12:30 the hands of the clock are furthest apart, just like their love… But is the girl dead? She looks pretty dead to me…
6. Zhoumi – Rewind
SM get a lot of hate, but let’s just take a moment to celebrate them doing something so very right. ZHOUMI GOT A SOLO DEBUT!!!!!!!!!! And I really like it. Sure I may have been blinded somewhat but how very good looking he it, those legs just go on forever and the abs, which were absolutely necessary, were very much appreciated. Aside form that I really liked the song with it’s R&B feel. I probably like the Chinese version slightly more, but that’s more to do with the fact that Tao is my bias in EXO and his rap is great! Well done Zhoumi!
7. B.I.G – Are You Ready? (준비됐나요)
On to my Rookies! You probably either loved or hated B.I.G’s debut song ‘Hello‘. If you were in the later category it’s time to give them a second chance. I was firmly in the “loved it” camp and was super excited to see them come back so soon after their debut. All rookies need to do this (Bigflo I’m looking at you) as it reassures us you still exist! I really enjoyed this MV. It’s cute, poppy and there is cute colourful hair! The plot, styling and setting are all great and the song is super catchy. 준비됐나요!
8. UNIQ – Falling In Love
My favourite debut for October has to be UNIQ with their song “Falling in Love”. I mostly like the song, but the MV is good too. I have a weakness for school uniforms and cute boys so they got me there. The only thing that gets me about this MV it that game they are playing! Does anyone know what it it? I am intrigued! I look forward to more good music form UNIQ! Fighting!
9. Topp Dogg – Annie
Topp Dogg sure are busy! Initially I wasn’t won over by this comeback but it has really grown on me over time. ‘Annie’ essentially pays homage to early 90’s pop. I really like the song and the MV is actually very clever. They whole scrolling building with all the little scenes is great. I appreciated the helpful names and love the MC Hammer inspired dance.
10. Strawberry Milk (Crayon Pop) – OK!
Coming in at number 10 for October, by the tip f their cute little straws has to be Crayon Pop’s new sub unit Strawberry Milk with ‘OK!’. It’s just so cute and fun that I had to put it in at number 10. The song of fun to sing and dance along to and the MV is pink overload, but a lot of fun.
