I wasn’t going to recap Boys Planet (and technically, I’m nonetheless not doing it), however I’m watching the sequence and thought others may respect a spot to debate it. So, every week I plan on dumping a number of of my random ideas in regards to the present. Once more, this is not going to be a full, detailed recap. However, in case you have one thing you wish to point out make certain to incorporate it within the feedback!
EDIT: I’m a day early this week! Don’t get used to it, although. These can be on Sundays any longer 🙂
Ideas on BOYS PLANET Episode One
Ideas on BOYS PLANET Episode Two
I’d wish to put forth a regulation hereby proclaiming that no single episode of a Okay-pop survival sequence ought to run longer than two hours. Critically, there’s no purpose to sit down via practically three hours of this. The one approach I can handle is to look at it in items.
So, what ought to they edit out?
- Most of the sign tune auditions, which start to sound the identical (ie: dangerous) after awhile.
- All of the selecting. Selecting members, selecting songs, selecting rivals, selecting positions, selecting facilities, selecting leaders, selecting abs. There’s approach an excessive amount of selecting, and selecting isn’t notably fascinating to look at. (Even selecting by way of arm wrestling has its limits.)
Only for reference, the primary efficiency of this episode didn’t begin till… an hour and forty-five minutes in. Sure, you can watch a complete feature-length movie earlier than attending to the music. Hell, I may constitution a flight to Boys Planet within the time it takes these episodes to get going.
The stage seems to be like a giant marriage ceremony cake this 12 months. Hanbin will get the coveted heart spot and, truthfully, he deserves it.
Aside from one or two tracks, the tune alternatives this spherical have been excellent. I used to be completely happy to see the producers lean into older hits by BTS, EXO and Seventeen. And, there have been a good quantity of vocal-focused choices.
Because the producers insist on hyping this Okay vs. G schtick, I’ll choose my favourite efficiency of every tune beneath.
Each groups have been shaky, however Okay undoubtedly did higher as a result of power of a vocalist or two (Seung Eon specifically). It was nonetheless a fairly unbalanced stage, although.
My choose: Okay Crew
The winners: Okay Crew
I do know this can be a big iconic mega hit, however I simply can’t with this tune. Nonetheless, it’s an honest showcase for charisma and feels tailored for a contest present like this. Crew G was my clear favourite. They simply appeared snug and assured and that made the efficiency simple to look at.
My choose: G Crew
The winners: G Crew
We solely noticed the G Crew’s efficiency this week so we’ll should see what the Okay Crew brings. However apart from Jay, the vocals on this have been tough…
