[news/video] Highlights From Arirang After School; The Meaning Behind “Angel” and How MFBTY Really Are

Last night, MFBTY did their first and last interview for the year on Arirang’s Afterschool, a program where fans use Google Hangout to communicate with the stars directly. A year off screen took a toll on fan curiosity, and the group was not afraid to admit what they were up to during that long hiatus. (Warning: Spoilers ahead. Watch it first here.)

They started on a lighter note, with Tiger complimenting how nice the chairs were and how he was too broke to afford it. Tasha admitted her favorite color is purple, to which the hosts, Eric Nam, & Jimin, tempted her to take the purple chair back to the FGM office (Though we can’t imagine how hard that would be to haul from Seoul to UiJeongBu).

Tasha Purple Chair

The crew have been coordinating their own marketing tactics, and Bizzy admitted he asked fans how to say “Angel,” in their own language. After some light laughs about botched pronunciations, they talked about how “Angel,” came about. The song was sitting in the archives for nearly 4 years, but came alive as they felt it resonated with their recent experiences. The death of Tiger’s father was one of noticeable influence, but Bizzy also went through some family struggles during the year, particularly with his mother. It brought Bizzy back to the death of his grandmother, and the culmination of both thoughts led Bizzy to write to the “Angel” beat, with Tiger and Tasha following.

Some mysteries about the music video were also revealed, and while it seemed that the cinematography had deep meaning, we found out the meaning evoked was actually accidental. The famous black angel shot was randomly constructed by Lumpens overnight, and the black and white shot was done moreso for simplicity than emotional response. What fans take away from the video is up to them, and MFBTY is all for open interpretation.

INTL On Screen

DT INTL also got some screen time, and we asked Bizzy and Tiger to explain why they chose Bizzy to be the winner of the famous boxing scene. Turns out this was a product of randomness as well, with Lumpens shooting them shadow boxing in through the night. We also found out Bizzy spends more time in the ring versus the studio, a decision Tiger is not too thrilled about (Side note: Tiger admitted Bizzy’s new “pecs” help with the ladies, leaving Tiger a bit jealous. Boss, you’re married.)

Fans were later invited to ask questions to MFBTY directly, but we have to thank Julisa from Texas for having the best request. A few days ago, Feel Ghood Music released two pieces of hidden camera footage (here and here) of Tiger dancing to a beat made by producer, KonDQuest. The fam jokes often of Tiger’s “funky” moves, and Julisa was thankful for FGM’s shared video. She requested an encore; Tiger obliged.

Arirang confessed later that they also interviewed MFBTY’s managers about them. The management team only consists of two people, so the load they endure is not light. The group was at first excited to hear what they would say, but just like the rest of the fam, their managers were honest… brutally honest. The management are MFBTY’s ride home to Uijeongbu, and we have a feeling that 1.5 hour ride was very very awkward.

On a happier note, sister site, BizzionaryINTL, was lucky enough to be in the personal hangout with MFBTY. While the show didn’t let admin, Nisa, ask questions on air, she shared with us this post interview shot of her talking with Bizzy and MFBTY directly. It was their technical first time “seeing” each other, and Bizzy being the quiet one he is, had to be teased by Tasha and Tiger to open up more to the head of his fanbase. She asked who his angel was, and the answer was as you would expect.

[editorial] 7 Things You May Have Not Noticed about Yoon Mirae’s “Angel” MV

Now that you’ve watched “Angel” (probably on repeat, for an amount of times you don’t want to admit), you probably have questions about the scenes in the video. Our observant eyes can confirm some references, but there are subtle inserts that we’re putting out there for you to interpret. So in case you missed it, here are some Easter eggs explained:

1) The Feel Ghood Toilet

TigerJK ToiletFor as long as we’ve known Tiger JK, he’s been a master of subtle jokes. We have no doubt that this was one that came out of his creative brain. Tiger stands alone staring at a toilet that reads, “Feel Ghood,” and an arrow pointing to the seat. “Take a load off and relax” just took on another meaning.

2)  The Featured Designer

The crew rocks a red pullover with a look reminiscent of the golden days of 90’s hip-hop, an era that all three members love. The logo’d out neoprene pullover is from Korean designer KYLLYK SPECTRUM. The pullover costs roughly $128USD and is up for purchase along with other designs also worn in the video.

3) The Promo Had Color, The Video Did Not

Even though we’ve watched the video an endless amount of times, it took us hours to realize there wasn’t an ounce of color used. We spent weeks looking at behind the scene photos, showing off the great splash of color on those refreshing outfits. Looks like director, Lumpens, wanted to mute that so that we could focus on the main message. Well played, FGM. Well played.

4) Luckiest Fan Alive

bizzyhoodie

Through the first 1/3 of the video, Bizzy is seen wearing a hoodie with the words “Lord Bizzy” on the right sleeve. This hoodie was given to him from a fan he met at MFBTY’s 2012 performance at Singapore’s Music Matters Conference. That lucky girl is probably having a heart attack right now.

5) Bizzy’s Revenge? (Update: CONFIRMED!)

BIzzy Ending MV

If you can remember back to 2008 when Bizzy was still a solo act, he was shot in his video for “The Day After We Broke Up.” The shooter? Bossman Tiger. Tiger has a smug look on his face while Bizzy is left for dead in his car. The last scene we see is of Bizzy, half dead, trying to follow the girl he fell in love with (who ironically planned the shooting with Tiger and ran off with him). How is this related to the “Angel” music video 6 years later?

knockoutThis time we see Bizzy, healthy and fit, knocking out Tiger in the boxing ring. We’re not 100% percent on this one, but we don’t think Tiger will try to kill Bizzy again anytime soon.

6) G-PA

Angel - GPA

Tiger JK was extremely close to his father, seeing him as both a guide and friend. It is only appropriate that the first “angel” referenced during his verse is his father, which then is followed with a scene of Tiger and Tasha kissing. When JK endured the worst of his myelitis, he admitted he was dangerously depressed, but it was Tasha’s love that kept him hopeful. Thus, Tiger’s two angels: his father and his wife.

7) The FGM family

When Feel Ghood Music was established, they stressed that they wanted to keep the label very family oriented, working only with actual blood family and then those who they felt they could trust. Almost every member of the Korea team appears in this music video.

[Video] YoonMiRae ft. Tiger JK & Bizzy – “Angel” MV finally released

angel screenshot

December 8th, 2014 – After a year’s hiatus, MFBTY came back debuting under YoonMiRae’s name, now known as YoonMiRae ft. Tiger JK and Bizzy. (Update) The lyrics send a message of hope, as it chronicles the tribulations the three endured over the past year. It sends people the message that love can be found in almost anything–from a complete stranger to a a close friend. Thus, the inspiration for the end images of the trio with both personal and work (FGM) family.

The three members have been boxing as a family hobby for the past 6 months, and they are not afraid to show it off here. Yoon MiRae also busts out some of her choreographed danced moves that we haven’t seen in years (and still has it down). Warning to all the ladies though, you may need to sit down before you watch this as there are some good looking men parading around in this video.

And with translated lyrics:
