Beast (aka B2st or 비스트), just released their new single, “Beautiful Night”. Cube Entertainment has released teasers for the past couple of days. Similar the 2NE1 teasers, I didn’t know what to think about Beast’s upcoming mini-album. All I really knew was that the music video was going to be colorful and fun. One of the main elements of K-pop that originally and instantly caught my attention was the use of high-energy dance beats. I’ve loved dance music since as far back as I can remember. Even though I used to be a ballet dancer, I can’t dance but I have a strong affection for the energy that is associated with electronic beats. I haven’t been a fan of Beast since their debut, but I can say I am of fan of them now. To be perfectly honest, I had no idea who they were until Hyun-Seung partnered up with Hyuna (4Minute) to create Troublemaker at the end of last year. I loved “Troublemaker” so much that I followed Hyun-Seung into his work with Beast. Even though I am not a diehard fan of Beast, I can certainly appreciate what they have to offer. Beast offers something a little bit different than Big Bang. As much as I love Big Bang, I feel as though G-Dragon and T.O.P. kind of steal the show, whereas with Beast I feel that the talent is a bit more evenly distributed.
