Rant. Read if you want.
In this world we live in must everything/everyone be accused of "copying" others? I mean come on, there really is never an "original". Everything is based off of something inspiring, that others take from and turn it into their own. Right. Such as stories. Come on, you always see those Kingka falls in love with nerd stories, or arranged marriage stories that all authors put their own twist on. I myself an guilty. Where is the original? Who knows? Sure the idea is the same, but the events that lead up to it, characters are different. It's a "trend" and depending on how you look at it, it's sometimes bandwagon. Since everyone is doing it might as well go with the flow and do the same thing.
Such as the new group A-JAX. Right. I know. Maybe you don't. Copying others well there we have a problem. Okay no one is copying others. No. As you can see the groups EXO and BAP all debuted with strong concepts and EXO with mystical powers. Well I can't blame DSP for going in that direction. Because if they decided to go with a concept 180 of that who would pay attention right? Debuting goodie boys when a strong image is popular is common sense, you just don't. You try to attack with a strong image as well. Right? Like this year alone, most boy bands debut with a strong image. A concept is a concept that no one can claim. Because really, they didn't "create" the concept.
Being as unbiased as I could I watched both A-JAX's, EXO's and BAP's MVs. They're really nothing a like. Just the concept and image they are pursuing is the same. They ALL are going for a STRONG/TOUGH image. Sure both EXO and A-Jax have the power thing going on, but hey their powers are different.
Also since A-JAX isn't from one of the "Big 3" (SM, JYP, YG) they're trying their best to get fans attention. BAP isn't either, but with their strong image and music they've managed. My point is that DSP is doing what they think would get fans attention and possibly is jumping on the bandwagon. Coming from someone that has seen most of DSP's MV's that they have made, they've stepped up their game A LOT. Maybe you don't like the song. Simply click the back button. Maybe you don't like them showing abs, personally I think that can wait, but there's no need to bash them about it. Maybe you just don't like them at all, keep your mouth shut and leave them alone. Do upon others as you wish they do upon to you. If you want to bash others, then your inviting others to bash on you. I admit the song isn't that catchy, DSP could have done better, but hey it's done and over with. If you don't like this song try their Pre-Open song, it's ballad, and is pretty catchy in my opinion, which I think really showcases their potential. You may not like them now, but wait until they come with a different concept.
I'm not attacking anyone. I just felt the need to rant and share what I think.
