After releasing a mysterious teaser hinting at release of BEAST‘s hit track “12:30,” it has finally been revealed 4minute‘s Gayoon has created a special cover of her labelmate’s track, putting her own spin.
Visiting a similar beach seen in BEAST’s concept images for her video cover, Gayoon strolls down the beach during sunrise as she seems to reflect on her thoughts.
Gayoon’s rendition of “12:30″ is sung gentler than the original track, which is vocalized in a more passionate and dramatic way. The 4minute member not only shares her vocal abilities in this cover, but also sings a short rap herself, revealing her hidden rapping abilities.
Okay to be honest this was the comeback I wasn’t even aware about. It came about a month before their labelmate APink’s comeback and I had really no clue on how the song would be. I was so busy those days that I didn’t even have the time to go through the teaser video. And when it released it was my kpop curiosity radar that opted me to go through it and to my surprise.. I LOVED IT! The MV is fun, colorful , playful & naughty. Of course there isn’t much of skinship which you expect from Hyuna but the sexiness radar is HIGH. 4Minute had a smashing comeback at least for me. The song is plain awesome. Its funny & humourous in parts but fun in totality. The MV goes GROSS in some places (watch it!) but overall I got totally addicted to the song. For me, Gayoon is the member who stands out the most because of the prominent vocal areas given to her. She also manages to being the sweet in the overall 4Minute wackiness. That’s what I love about her. Thanks to some thinking, Hyuna gets less limelight this time which is good for the group as such. The other songs on the album are good as well. Overall a safe & fun comeback: Nothing too serious, Nothing too dull! CHECK IT OUT HERE!
COMEBACK RATING – 8.5/10
Okay! 1 day & 2 AWESOME kpop Japanese Single MVs out= PARADISE!:)
4Minute’s brand new japanese single ‘Love Tension’ has thrown all my tension out! To be honest, I am a big fan of 4minute. But even today, whenever any of their singles are to be released(korean or japanese), I always be a bit apprehensive of whether I ‘ll like it or not. But this MV has put that fear of mine away…COMPLETELY! I absolutely adored the song! It’s the return of their signature strong+Club beats which makes me SUPER DUPER EXCITED!! So it’s a Thumbs-Up for this one. Nothing more to say! just sit back & Enjoy!!:)
