Once again it was a tough decision but for this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week we’ve chosen “Coffee Shop” by B.A.P. (비에이피) It was released on June 27th and has been viewed around 1,300,000 times so far on YouTube. Here are our reasons for choosing “Coffee Shop” for our KPOP song of the week:
- Firstly the song is a change from the B.A.P norm and is more of a ballad, but it sounds great.
- Secondly the video is well made and not over produced.
- Finally B.A.P have shown some true talent with this release.
- On the negative side; the video seemed to be more of the tour of different major US cities and landmarks. Why not use Korea?
