Agust D (BTS’ Suga) – Daechwita (대취타): MV Review

Too bad that we haven’t reviewed BTS release of ON and Black Swan. But this time, we’ll make it in our new review here. How will a new ARMY review the soloist?

Let’s take a look on Suga’s single release Daechwita. In this case he used his alternate name Agust D. For simplicity, the author will not discuss the context behind the music and video. It’s best left to fellow ARMYs and other reviewers to do this task.

The story starts with a sitting ruler going outside the palace incognito. As with some leaders, he does this to view situations on the ground. Upon seeing a stranger, who is a modernistic twin, he held the latter captive. The modern twin is set to be executed at night, but upon execution wakes up and finally kills the ruler.

Viewed on the other side, the MV tells us of the struggle between old vs new way of life. This is on how they act, feel, and do. Daechwita’s visuals let us think, “What if these contrasts happen in real life?”

It seems that the music video fuses old and new approaches. Even if this is a way off, this adds color. The song opens with a rap, and Agust D sprinkles raps throughout the whole song. It helps in giving needed consistency to Daechwita, and tells us how powerful his raps can be.

Since the group’s attitudes are outstanding, five extra points will be added in our rating of Agust D’s work.

Baekhyun (백현) – Candy: MV Review

We will gradually resume site operations (except YouTube) starting with this review.

For more than four months, we haven’t written any review on latest releases due to fewer reads and the pandemic. As these take toll on blogging, we now have to gradually resume this. We will start on our first review with EXO’s Baekhyun in his latest song Candy.

The storyline consists of him going to an old warehouse, which was then retrofitted to be a dressing room and arcade room for his friends. It then tells how he spends his time together with friends, eating and playing all the time. Later on, Baek will realize upon walking that these are now memories.

The music video tries to impart that life is also full of sweets, which is relevant now amidst widespread sadness and depression going on. Tangible side is apparent on features of softdrinks, candies, and juice dispensers. Intangible side focuses on sweetness experienced upon playing of arcade games and sharing of foods together.

While the mood of the music is slow, the beats is fast enough to elicit excitement. Other noticeable additions of the song is on bubbly tunes heard throughout, and on howling tunes which give an eerie feeling.

In comparison with his famous UN Village, Candy lacked any suspense factor for it to be drawn attention with.

A little bit of improvement would be on pausing the song as Baek walks with freezing cameos. This will give an added tenseness, and will emphasize how sweet his life was before.

Public Service Announcement (May 31, 2020)

Dear readers:

Due to partial lifting of lockdown, we have to gradually resume site operations. YouTube operations are still suspended till further notice.

For now, MV Reviews will be written. Criteria is further simplified, and reviews are focused on major comebacks. This is to save limited time allotted writing reviews.

Please be guided accordingly.

Public Service Announcement (April 10, 2020)

Dear readers:

Due to extended Enhanced Community Quarantine, the site and YouTube pages’ operations are suspended till further notice.

As misheard lyrics videos will be delayed due to handicaps, we will release these vids on a “rolling basis”. If finished next month, the first misheard for 2020 will include releases from January to May.

Even in times like these, TweetNewscaster is still committed in spreading fun. Thank you very much.

There will be updates for My Bias List this year.

We will add Busters in the list, with Chaeyeon as ultimate bias. Bias wrecker will be Jisoo till further notice. Rocket Punch will replace SATURDAY as one of three most fave groups, as the latter still has no improvements on its activities and promotions.

As both PSY and Hari aren’t releasing new songs for long time, the author has to leave their respective fandoms. Consequently, two slots are now open for groups to be followed.

Public Service Announcement (March 14, 2020)

Dear readers:

In light of increasing cases of COVID19, less time allotted for leisure, and lower views, we will suspend TweetNewscaster’s operations in this site till further notice.

However, Featured Images of the Day and MV Reviews shall still be continued.

Due to lack of time to cover immense comebacks for February and March, we will just give a rundown on several comebacks per week.

To add, we will simplify further criteria used in reviewing their performances. From 19 criterion, we will trim it down to just 10. This move is also done to cope up with limited time given in reviewing tracks.

So, expect major impact this will bring on their future performances, especially on underperforming groups and agencies.

This move is also in consonance with Japanese “zero-tolerance” approach being strictly implemented in our reviews of K-Pop acts.

For your information.
