A few days ago, rookies Bebop debuted with "I'm the Best." Creative name, no? The group has done a couple projects in the past year, an OST for some drama I didn't watch and a song with Humming Urban Stereo, but this is the group's first real showcase.
Bebop has a couple notable things about it off the bat. One, it's a girl band, something there's not enough of in kpop. Two, it includes Jiin, who Girl's Day stans might remember as being in the group originally. She bailed off the S.S. Girl's Day after only a couple months.
Can't say I blame you, gurl.
In addition to Jiin the refugee, the group includes drummer Ahyeon and tomboy guitarist Juwoo.
Maybe later, but I have to finish my review first, k?
"I'm the Best" is a fun, catchy song that sounds like the love child of Jet's "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" and Secret's "Love is Move" (props to Soyeon Friend for the second part of that description and for the gif in the beginning of this post).
I'd argue that this guy's actually the one carrying the group.
In the video, the members grow increasingly annoyed with one another until they take to the ring to duke it out in sexy style.
Bitch, that was my B.B. cream!
"I'm the Best" is one of the strongest debuts I've seen in a while. And that's from a group I didn't give two shits about before hearing this song. In fact, "I'm the Best" has so entranced me that I don't even know why I clicked on it in the first place. Hmmmm, that's odd.
Excuse me while I Bebop myself into oblivion.
BOTTOM LINE: Bebop debuts with solid, funny song that shows their potential. I can't wait to see what's next.
