If you heard of EPIK HIGH before, that means you have a good taste in music. The group consists of Tablo, Mitra Jin, and DJ Tukutz and you guessed it right they are signed to YG Entertainment 🙂
Musical wise I love how Epik High is composed their songs, some of the songs are really sentimental, relatable to the younger audience too :), well although their MVs are not surpassing 100 Millions Views on YouTube but at least I’m pretty sure their music surpassing 1000 Millions of Hearts :). To be honest with everyone I’m the kind of fan who are waiting for the artist comeback but I don’t watch music video.
First of all the reason for me not watching music video is, it will make me biased to the meaning of the song 🙂 also for me personally since I lived outside Indonesia I need to call or Facetime my parents using the internet in which I got 15 GB for phone 🙂 (i know that’s awesome) so I need to save my internet for school, and whattapp chatting rather than streaming. I know Epik High from the K-Pop indusrty 🙂 but what I love about Epik High is because Tablo once collaborated with Younha. Now Younha once sang for Bleach anime Houki Boshi or Comet , if you grew up with anime we’re on the same page.. going back to Tablo, so the song called Memory its so good, but they also have another collaboration called Umbrella 🙂
But the group also write about story telling of themselves Born Hater was dedicated to those who dissed them. Tablo was dissed regarding the controversy about his certificate of Standford University, Mino dissed himself for hi past failure of becoming Block B, and his BoM.
님이 십팔년도 쯤에 날 보면
지금 이런 말 못할 걸?
Yup MINO now is 2018, and you did your best last 2017, getting all the support you deserve 🙂 I mean Beenzino and MINO, and EPIK HIGH in one MV..its amazing 🙂 but at the same time its like empowering everyone to prove that the one that dissed them or put themselves down are wrong.. totally #grouppower 🙂
But Epik High also relatable to the youngster who experiencing heartbreak the song Spoiler I think is one of the best heartbreak song I love 🙂 the words like “I could see the end of us through this spoiler” I feel like I’m not ready to get heart break, but at the same time I want to feel the pain of heart breaking. Because the tempo, and the beat is not wayy to upbeat so you can listen to it when you want to sleep 🙂 so I really recommend this one for you guys if you’re upset <3
But the song with Oh Hyuk on their latest album was one of my favourite Home is Far Away 🙂 since I lived in Melbourne for me my home is far away :), I miss my home a lot
I have a long way to go
But there are no taxis
And it feels like it’s gonna rain
The weight of today on top of my sagging shoulders
I wanna put it down for a moment
Home is far away
Is there no place for me in this big world? (Home is far away)
Am I alone in this crowded street? (So, so far away)
Is there no empty seat for me?
So far away
I feel like the song also figurative speaking to the loner, or people who face rejection the “home” itself can be the acceptance from the surroundings 🙂 🙁 because home is where you got to be yourself and accepted, that’s why I miss my home a lot. For their newest album, they also collaborated with MINO, Dok3, The Quiett, Simon Dominic.
For No Thanxxx it has been regarded as the Born Hater second chapter, but this one also created a controversy for Mino again. The verse that Mino wrote was “Nowadays, it’s considered hate even if you just use the word Motherf***r, s*t.” however Tablo came to rescue the rising star by stating
In all sincerity, that was not our intention at all.”
He continued, saying, “If you look at the overall context of ‘No Thank You,’ it is a reckless satire of society, and we worked hard to express the message of ‘let’s discover our own selves’ in this song. There was no other intention.”
But I mean haters will always gonna hate 🙁 guys, we spend more energy on hating people rather than loving people 🙂 but at least those people who got so much hate actually the most successful, eye catching to the public internationally 🙂 so peace out.. LOVE EPIK HIGH
