MBLAQ – It’s War

Didn’t I call it? I so did call it back when I reviewed MBLAQ’s minalbum Y. I said back then that there was something lurking in the background of the MBLAQ sound. I was sure they had it in them to be even more awesome. Then, they came out with BLAQ STYLE and I was proven right. But that wasn’t all.

With last year’s release, MONA LISA, MBLAQ took it to a whole different level. There was accordion, there were Spanish influences, there were better vocals. They stood out in a Kpop scene where everyone was beginning to sound the same/there was a lack of quality.

Now the boys are back with their new mini-album, 100% Ver. — it’s more, well, I need to listen to it a few more times before I can make up my mind about it. But so far so good.

Today MBLAQ released the MV to their title track It’s War (전쟁이야).

I adore the music video for the acting (Joon Lee, you amazing man you!), the style, the dancing, the editing. Still having issues with what MBLAQ is wearing, but I doubt that’s going to improve soon. Also, the song is really good. But what the hell is going on in this music video? I am so confused. It looks pretty, but it doesn’t make sense at all. But then again, there are very few times that Kpop makes sense at all xD.


Music is all I do: I work in music, I write about music, I listen to music.
