Things I Noticed in Block B’s Very Good Music Video

Oh, this comeback…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJGcO5Une-g

  • Member with clown mask, bald with green hat
  • 0:21, 0:29- B-Bomb driving, he be drifting
  • 0:25 – U-Kwon with a money bag (?)
  • 0:36 – Zico comes out (red suit, blonde mickey mouse hair. plain mask)
  • 0:57 – Jaehyo takes off the clown mask that was bald with a green hat (thus, the member entering the vehicle at the beginning was likely him).
  • 1:00 – U-kwon’s clown mask had red curls like some of the others, but his has a small red hat with a gold stripe.
  • 1:12 – Zico leg guitar, and the money in U-Kwon’s mouth
  • 1:16 – U-Kwon’s money bag from before…
  • 1:40 – Jaehyo, the ladies’ man…
  • There’s also a little skull on his bow tie.
  • 1:58 – Return of brainy Taeil theme
  • Also return of the Taeil Nilili Mambo lollipop
  • 2:22 – I may be wrong, but that character looks like ‘弟’ which means little brother in Chinese.
  • 2:29 – U-Kwon seems to be the butt of many violent jokes now… (don’t even get me started on Be the Light)
  • 2:35 – The cast is beating the table to the rhythm
  • 2:37 – The woman’s body and legs are at different sides of the table
  • 2:44 – Kyung tapping the bald heads to the beat
  • 2:49 – One of the tattoos on the drummer says “DRUMMER”… Wouldn’t have guessed lolol.
  • 3:04 – Zico is wearing the same black and white outfit from earlier, when he had the black wig, BULLS cap and black lipstick. He’s just wearing lots of red now for some sort of demon king concept.
  • 3:09 – Taeil cuts meat, slashes his wrists (? maybe he was sharpening his knife), thrashes about and plays violin with his knife and fork props.
  • All of Kyung’s scenes, Zico’s king scene, and Taeil’s knife and fork scene were filmed in the same 307 patterned room.
  • 3:21 – The clown masks are chilling on the left side of the room, where the bank booths are.
  • 3:24 – Zico, Kyung and P.O play hot potato with the dynamite
  • 3:27 – Why is Zico on that green pants man’s back…?
  • 3:32 – Zico’s with some lovely ladies.
  • 3:39 – U-Kwon is dancing with books (?) in his hands while Zico sweeps.
  • 3:45 – Return of Kyung Mental Breaker dance
  • 3:49 – Taeil detonates his bomb! :D
  • Recurrent crosses and skulls everywhere (from props, to backdrops to clothing)…

Things I’m left to wonder…

  • Why does Block B keep stealing stuff? From jewels to robbing a bank…
  • Is there a connection between their company issues and this music video, or was it just a fun idea?
  • What is with these character archetypes? (Zico – leader, U-Kwon – prone to violence, Jaehyo – women, P.O – violence, Taeil – nerd, Kyung – food, B-Bomb…?)
  • Yay Block B! (not a question but still).

Did you guys see anything else?

Update: FAQ#1

(Added and updated FAQ page with this info)

Why is their name “Block B”?
Their original name was “Block Buster” but… (I will update later)

What company are they under?
Brand New Stardom.

What is ____’s position in Block B?
Zico is the leader and a rapper.
Kyung is a rapper.
P.O is a rapper and the maknae (youngest).
Taeil is the lead vocal.
Jaehyo is a sub vocal and main visual.
B-Bomb is the lead dancer and a sub vocal.
U-Kwon is a dancer and a sub vocal.

I can’t tell the members apart!
Voice wise:
P.O has the deepest voice, and is a rapper.
Kyung has the higher pitched rapping voice.
Zico is the tenor rapper in between those two.
U-Kwon has a husky voice.
Taeil’s is very clear and… Resonate? He has a very high pitched voice when he talks.
Jaehyo has a weaker voice than Taeil.
B-Bomb’s voice is a bit nasally.
Face Wise: (see the header)

Who have the best bodies?
Why is this a question…? I would say B-Bomb and U-Kwon, since they have both flashed their abs. There was also a picture of B-Bomb and U-Kwon together at the Mutnam shoot that shows how thick U-Kwon’s arms are.

QUESTIONS ORDERED BY MEMBERS IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER.

B-Bomb

Why do people associate him with dimples?
In the allkpop interview with Block B, B-Bomb stated that his ideal woman was someone with cute dimples. See the Dirty FAQ for a more detailed explanation.

Who is Minhyuk?
That is B-Bomb’s real name.

Jaehyo

Why so people call him “derp”?
XD

Kyung

Why do people call Kyung greasy?
It’s hard to explain. This might not even be an accurate answer: the way he acts is so cheesy and greasy. A BBC called him greasy and it has stuck to him since.

P.O

How is P.O associated with whales?
Part of it is this bromance he has with Taeil, who is called a Sharkie. See the Dirty FAQ for a more detailed explanation.

Taeil

Why do people call him “Sharkie”?
He likes to raise fish as a hobby.

U-Kwon

Why do people associate him with kittens?
He seems to like cats, based on here (he performed with a cat on his shoulder) and here (he was playing with a cat during …)

Zico

What is up with him and Hello Kitty?
Since he looks kind of mean, he bought some Hello Kitty merchandise to soften his image. However, he grew so attached to Hello Kitty that he bought even more Hello Kitty things.
