[Opinion] My Fans (are) Better Than Yours – Sweet Dream

Okay, so… Basically I want to write blog every day. Yes, every day! (Minus the day when I don’t feel like it.) However, because of my rarely-there-connection, posting my writing to the blog is rather difficult. Yet, many of my post is not timeless. Yeah, so it’s kinda out of date if I post it after a few days in stack. Gosh… I feel like I need to buy an internet modem so I could post anytime anywhere I want.

Aside of the rant… (Wait a minute, I forget what I want to write…)

Oh, right! I supposed to write about this new established rapper group from South Korea since I read one fanfic chapter titled as What Goes Round Comes Around and got distracted (by the same fanfic… Yes, shame on me…).

Now if I wanted to tell you the truth, I will said that I really really really REALLY love Asian Hip hop music since my first contact with Home Made Kazoku. I can’t really pinpoint the quality that I love from them though but it’s possibly because the whole package got me going.  Yea, I’m aware that not any of the language I could understand perfectly as I listen to it but like usual, I won’t waver (I’m pretty loyal to what I deemed interesting). There were plenty of Japanese rap group though, so I think I jump from one group to another depends on my mood. Just after the Japanese fever get down a bit, I got a hold of South Korean music.

Well, most of you would know about K-Pop though. That’s when we talked about PSY world’s domination, Bigbang successful concerts around the world, 2NE1 collaboration with Will.I.Am (that has been done since forever but never comes out), JYJ’s first single with Kanye West and Malik Yusef or XIA Junsu collaboration with Bruce ‘Automatic’ V. Not to mention, the horde of girls and boys called Girl’s Generation and Super Junior.

However… in the terms of ‘K-Pop’… Pop music can’t be translated as just pop or something pop-ish. For many of people, K-Pop is actually a movement to spread the name of South Korea through music. But many musician in South Korea would said that K-Pop is actually a mother genre of many more genres including swing, jazz and hip-hop, or even indie. Now after you got the basic of being a K-Poppers, I will write about this new hip-hop group that not entirely new since the members are popularly known before.

This group was named as My Fans Better Than Yours (abbreviated as MFBTY) and consisted of three well known rappers: Tiger JK, his wife Yoon Mirae (or better known as Tasha) and Bizzy. If we would go for their individual history, you would heard me said ’tis and ‘tat, yadda yadda yadda and endless blah blah blahs. So  to prevent you from getting bored, I have linked their name to their Wiki pages (yes, and Bizzy doesn’t have one).  Anyway, you better see their first video ever before I proceed the entire blabbers about them.

Then I will freely give you this link from Eat Your Kimchi interview with MFBTY to know better about them and to prevent you from confusion since I’m a bit subjective with my writing (I can’t help it, I am biased). The interview comes in three parts since Simon and Martina (the couples that run  Eat Your Kimchi) can’t decide which and which that should be uploaded (and I’m not complaining, at all).

So if you want me to resume their first video Sweet Dream, I will write it in one word: BIZARRE. Yep, that’s the only review I got for this video. The End.

Kidding!

I don’t actually know the connection between the title of the song with the video itself. Since, as you see, the video seems like it was visualizing nightmares instead of a sweet dream. But hey, nightmare is a dream too so there is probably one connection or more about it.

For me, this song and video sounds more inspirational musically rather than just because the lyrics or the symbolism. No, I’d never really taking my time thinking about symbolism. I used to watch video as a piece of art that deserved to be admired whether you understand it of not (since many arts is actually the concrete form of human emotion). And for the lyrics, well… I can only understand the hook part since I don’t have time to look up to their lyrics until now (yes, now when I write this post).

So as you see, this post won’t be a review. It would be more like my own opinion about this video since I can’t help to be subjective. I really want to say that this video is kind of bad-ass and metaphorically fused up it blew my mind. LOL. The scenes is carefully thread to give you some sense about the dream but not forgetting the playfulness too. When I see them driving in a car but actually just a plain-looking bed, I was like… DANG! This was supposed to be a dream and they even gave you some clues about it. Of course, the steak scene is a bit, IDK, ridiculous or something… I just, I just don’t understand but yeah… The tigers there are cool. I mean the machine tiger ravishing a slab of beef-steak in the sick Tiger JK’s stomach in front of the dandy Tiger JK! See, how many tiger there in the scene?? Okay, I should stop rambling. -_-

Anyway, as a bonus. I will present to you this lyrics I got from kpoplyrics.net. And I really need to buy their album as soon as they released it! OMG! XD

MFBTY – Sweet Dream

English Translation:

We are meant to be another time another life
Possibly, probably you would be mine
Can you get away, get away, can you get away
I wanna go go where you are(x3)

Hold the glass up on top of the head, everybody come on
Two together rather than one, go over the tough mountain
Go over the tough mountain and walk across the sea
Humming, mumbling, spell the charm charm charm
Da da dance to the forbidden love song
The morning sun hides shyly when it sees us
(An obvious result like I see the future)
Already I steal your heart on our first date
An obvious result like the movie watching backwards
A dizzy ending tingle tingle tingle tingle (electrify ya!)
Encircled by fragrant aroma
You are flying giving me a ride, you hold the end of this night
We sink softly along the light we follow
Beside the clouds (inhale, exhale)

We are meant to be another time another life
Possibly, probably you would be mine
Can you get away, get away, can you get away
I wanna go go where you are(x3)

Now move I am stretching
As I enter it’s a start of the adventure
I am going and the direction is toward you
Yes let’s not hide it now, it’s annoying
Tweak the truth, make 1 to 2
Let’s fly away be like super heroes
Let our secret be secret, an everlasting secret
I think it’s fun to bury it and go

You run away across the sea, you run away and I catch you again
I fly with my arms open and raised
I got your back like you got my back
For you get it get it do not talk about the past
Straight ahead straight is continued
Give me give me give me some more
Gather here leaving the hard burden at home

What goes around I might come back around
We call it Karma, karma I don’t mean to harm you (x2)

Beomttibeom open your arms, do the humpty hump (x3)

Can you get away, get away, can you get away
I wanna go go where you are
