Big Bang – Monster
The latest release from Big Bang, Monster, is out to promote the re-release of the Alive album.
Dear Big Bang, please step back and take your seats. Try to get over yourselves a little and get back to reality. The fact that you are one of the biggest K-Pop acts has already been established. We know that you’re the cream of the crop and at the top of the heap and all that already, so for the love of all that’s holy, please stop dressing like crazy people.
The style used in this video is so over the top I swear that they used rejected ideas from Lady Gaga. Why does Taeyang look like a ram, and GD like a mushroom? I get that they’re talking about being a “monster” so that the stylists might have tried this concept for that reason, but someone should have put their foot down and said a big “hell no.”
Can we all go back and take a look at the video that got me into Big Bang? Lies was a beautiful video. It was equal parts story, dance, and fan service. That’s what fans deserve, something that makes sense, is cohesive, and still stylish, not stylized. So please, YG, next time you greenlight a Big Bang concept, take a moment to think of whether they deserve to look like idiots, or if you should leave them with just a touch of respectability.
