[NEWS] 140730 Block B targets “HER” and sweetly hits the mark
Group Block B shed their tough image and are receiving a great response for their loveable look that will win a woman’s heart.
Block B boldly went forth with the change through their 4th mini-album “HER” which shines with pink light from the album jacket to the music video. It seems like Block B is always intense, but their unexpectedly(?) lovable side comes through this album and ‘definitely melts sweetly’.
During their recent showcase, Block B’s Zico said that the members all enjoy showing change and that they wanted to change their image. With that desire, this time they were able to make the ears of their female fans flutter with their image like boyfriend idols, erasing their existing image.
Block B tossed away their strong and exciting feel from “Nillili Mambo” and “Very Good”, and brought up their loveable side with “HER”.
Member P.O showed the desire to capture the hearts of female fans, saying, “The subject of our previous songs hasn’t been about girls. I think that we’ll be able to show our cute and lovable side through this song”. With their sweet lyrics and cute concept, Block B ranked #1 on the music charts right after releasing their song on music sites. They are up as candidates to win #1 on this week’s SBS “Inkigayo” on August 3rd to solidify their position as popular idols.
“HER” is filled with the heart of a man who has fallen for a woman whose beauty suits the title of the song.
Lyrics exceprt: Jesus, there’s no need for words / Everyone calls you a work of art / Just a little bit of you, gonna fiercely treasure you/ You’re pretty without lacking a thing HER /
Like this, the lyrics of ‘HER’ praises the beauty of the person a man has fallen for, and Block B relays their eager love confession with the ‘romance in their minds’ through their bright image. From Block B’s rappers Park Kyung and P.O putting aside their rap and going for vocal parts to the concept, the entirety of this song has a different color.
The mood of the first track, “A Woman That Is Hard To Find” makes the hearts of women flutter with its lyrics and rap. The lyrics give a great impression as they are dedicated to “the girl who has the most unique charm and is perfect in my eyes”.
Lyrics excerpt: A person shouldn’t have this much charm / Please that’s enough / You’re the pretty one but why am I tired / You’re not an ordinary girl / You’re a girl that’s hard to find /
Block b every album creative and strong individuality image stood out as much ‘girl’ listeners oriented to sensual rhythm meticulous lyrics new album popularity follows.
As much as Block B stood out with their creative and strong individuality for every album they released, their new album gained popularity for its sensual rhythm and meticulous lyrics made for their ‘girl’ listeners.
The new album was completed thanks to leader Zico’s producing, and he was able to successfully make Block B’s wish to “change their image” come true by combining his infinite creativity with sweet romance.

Block B’s stages are stages full of the carefree colors of 7 men. Even when they dance the same dance, the members have different eye-catching steps. Each individual expression is a factor in the color of the stage. Here, every member’s performance is added like seasoning. Block B’s charms have been upgraded with the release of their fourth mini-album “HER” this past 24th. From Park Kyung’s gossip-sharing choreography in his part in verse 1, to B-Bomb’s hammer-striking choreography in verse 2, to the light-headed and dizzy bouncing choreography, etc.—in addition to a performance full of teamwork, their colorful performance even includes aegyo poses and Park Kyung’s individual dance to show off their personal talents. Which music broadcast brought out Block B’s charms the best?
# Mnet ‘M! Countdown’: Congratulations on 10 years!
10 years of goodness+regret: ★★★
PO’s back-turning points: ★★★
The point choreography, such as the gossip-sharing, hammer choreography, and Park Kyung’s individual dance came out well on M! Countdown’s 10-year anniversary special broadcast. However, possibly due to it being a 10-year special broadcast, the stage and sound system were more regretful than usual. Because it was a live broadcast, PO’s introductory part was done as an intro video, and the stage began from Zico’s appearance. Even so, the stage had a rushed feeling. Even the camerawork lacked detail-oriented full shots, relying primarily on the side cameras rather than the jimmy jib cameras that illuminate the entire foreground. Additionally, the continual focus on members who had finished their parts and were heading upstage was regretful. All of the major points were shown, but the level of completion was regretful.
# KBS2 ‘Music Bank’: A certain priority is necessary!
Ranking of affection for B-Bomb: ★★★☆
Prioritizing fireworks over artists ranking: ★★★
At ‘Music Bank,’ Block B boasted of their unique freshness while wearing their sparkling stage clothes. Park Kyung’s individual dance and the HER chorus dog-leg choreography generally turned out well, but the overall camerawork was disappointing. First of all, by switching between close-up and full shot at a rapid speed, the engagement in the performance was lowered. The obviousness of their love for B-Bomb was severe. Because they only showed a close-up on B-Bomb during his verse 2 hammer-striking choreography, the point of the choreography couldn’t be captured. During B-Bomb’s ‘I’m light-headed and dizzy’ part, in verse 2 there was a close-up on B-Bomb even during the choreography that was thrown out at once. Similarly with ‘M! Countdown,’ after PO’s part was finished, the camerawork showed a lack of sense in capturing his back as he went upstage to find his place in the choreography. Additionally, fireworks were used as an affect during Zico and Taeil’s climax part, but because of the fireworks the members’ faces were obscured.
# MBC ‘Show! Music Core’: This week’s best!
Sense of timing: ★★★★
Taeil’s Micky Mouse cutie ranking: ★★★★☆
On ‘Show! Music Core’ (hereafter Music Core), Zico’s winter fashion compared with the other members’ summer fashion had an interesting feeling. As expected from Music Core, who uses low angles often, the use of a low angle during Zico’s rap part was able to show off the full majesty of Zico’s rap. During highlighted parts like ‘I’m light-headed and dizzy,’ ‘HER!’ etc., the camera angle captured the points of the song while also using appropriate transitions. In particular, during ‘I’m light-headed and dizzy,’ at ‘light-headed’ the camera angle expanded to capture all of the members doing the bouncing choreography. During B-Bomb’s hammer and Park Kyung’s individual dance it was also appropriate. Even the set at Music Core matched well with the concept of ‘HER’ through its vivid coloring. They also captured most of the members’ sesame-like expression acting. Taeil’s Mickey Mouse was particularly cute.
# SBS ‘Inkigayo’: The camera was dancing. Excitement
Camera’s dance ability: ★★★☆
B-Bomb and U-Kwon handsome guy ranking: ★★★★★
Inkigayo expressed the excitement of Block B’s music through a set that seemed like coming to a rock bowling place. With their bangs, B-Bomb and U-Kwon showed a handsome guy image among the neighborhood hooligan-like Block B. Wasn’t it a little too excited? Even the camera was excited along with them. During ‘I’m light-headed and dizzy,’ the camera nodded along with the members who were nodding their heads. During Park Kyung’s individual dance where he waves his hand, the camera also waved along with him. There were also instances where the camera showed members other than the member who was singing the current part. However, they did show sense in being the only one of the four broadcast station who did not capture only the backs of members as they returned to their positions in the choreography.

BBCs! Our Block B Intl graphics team have been working hard these past few weeks, and created our beautiful new honeycomb theme and logo!
We’re trying to bring together bontheblock, 7ontheblock and blockbintl into one cohesive unit that you can use as your #1 english Block B source. Our theme includes a sliding banner with links to the forum, youtube channel and Sesea’s website. We also have a page full of links to all Block B and BBI related content, a new tag system, an about page, and a direct link to Block B’s schedule.
Unfortunately we have not completely re-tagged everything on the blog, so not all the tags go back to 2011 yet, but we are in the process of getting that done soon so you can find articles, twitter, and subbed content all the way through Block B’s career. If you find any other glitches/holes with the theme or new content, shoot us a message so we can fix it asap!

[!!] A tip from a kind BBC! It may be hard to refresh every time the MV ends so it would be easier to make a playlist and put it on autoplay!
1. Make a new playlist. Name it and add BLOCK B’s HER MV to it (Please use the video from CJENMMUSIC channel for now)
2. Use the instructions in the image above to add the same video multiple times into the playlist.
3. Once you are satisfied with the number of videos in the playlist, play the playlist.
4. Remember to set it on autoplay. Copy the URL of the automated playlist.
5. Open up the secret tab relevant to your browser using this
6. Paste the URL in the web address and open as many tabs as you like with the same URL.
Remember that the volume should be 50% or more for each view to count. (Don’t ask us why - we don’t know)
If you don’t want all these tabs screaming at you, then you can lower the volume of your respective browser by using the volume mixer setting of your computer.
Thank you for your support and hard work! We understand that it all seems very complicated but we are trying our best to make it easier for everyone.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
