Block B – Freeze!

And Korea keeps spitting out idols like nobody’s business. I begin to wonder, aren’t Koreans getting tired of so many groups debuting every month?

This week we have Block B coming out with their track Freeze! (그대로 멈춰라!). Even before their debut there has been much talk about them. Produced and trained by famous producer/rapper Cho PD, Block B is said to have gone through a very strict training program. They are not only meant to be idols, they are also meant to be highly capable artists.

Here is the result of said training:

Well, what can I say about it? I know that many fans are going to hang me for this but they kind of remind me of Big Bang. Now, I know that it might be premature to draw comparisons, but you can’t deny that there’s some influence going on here. Plus, the lead singer kind of sounds like Taeyang and the rapper, that comes in towards the end, kind of sounds and looks like T.O.P….

The song sounds good, the MV is good. Interesting debut, quite a strong one as well. We shall see what Block B has to offer.

    They do remind me of BB, but for me there is something that stands out. The rappers actually sound like rappers and not idols who were to bad at singing so they were forced to rap
