For the past 2 or 3 weeks, I've been trying to catch up on these comebacks by reacting to some of music videos that came out this month. There were only a select few that I reacted to, and here are my extended thoughts that I didn't have enough MBs to discuss on-camera. Haha.
BTS (방탄소년단) - Come Back Home
Before I even watched this music video, I had no idea that it was for Seo Taiji's 25th Anniversary. But the first thing that I thought about when I heard that BTS came out with this music video, I thought about 2NE1's Come Back Home. Then, I found an article - I don't remember if it was from allkpop or Soompi or Koreaboo - and saw that the article talked about other artists did some form of dedication or remake of this song.
I had also listened to the original song, and I couldn't help but laugh at the trends that they followed back in the day when K-pop started out. But it also made me realized that the western world of hip-hop was no different. The music, the fashion, almost everything is similar. My eyes have been opened to all the common things that all parts of the world have with each other all this time, but it still amazes me everytime I witness things like this. That's why there's that saying that "music is universal."
DAY6(데이식스) "Hi Hello"
With this reaction, I picked up the tiny passion for editing videos. Behind the scenes, I thought that I was going to have a hard time editing this video. I thought that so hard... that I almost wasn't going to keep going with this little hobby of mine on my own. The thought of losing sleep because I knew it was going to take me a while to get through finishing this video was worrying me. I hadn't gotten enough sleep to begin with and losing even more sleep was not ideal. But... I kept at it. And I enjoyed working on this video, as well as enjoyed watching the men singing in this video.
