When “Loser” is a deep song with such heavy messages for Big Bang’s comeback, the group also gives their beloved VIPs “Bae Bae”. When “Loser” is taking us to a wonder about self-reflection toward life, “Bae Bae” will take us to another level of romance. In the K-pop universe, we might have found other songs performed by other male groups that speak up about worship and adoration toward women, beauty, and love. However, Big Bang bravely present another way to do that through “Bae Bae”. Frantically yet beautifully, they bring up the most sensitive issue in man-woman relationship: sex appeal. Yup, the grown men are now openly talking about sex. It’s inevitable that indeed appearance is the first thing a man sees from a woman. And actually, a woman does see that too from a man at first. It’s the trigger to an attraction, the keeper to affection. So here it is the second selected Big Bang’s new hit for Male Special Part 1: Band of Brothers, “Bae Bae”.

Baby baby, can you stay beautiful just like you are right now? So my heart can race even after time passes. Baby baby, don’t wither. This is all for the selfish me. You have to stay just as you are right now.” –Big Bang, Bae Bae

“Bae Bae” was served as the second single released from “M” single album on May 1st 2015, digitally back-to-back with “Loser”. The hip-hop R n’ B track was written by G-Dragon and T.O.P along with YG Entertainment’s composer Teddy. This song has an element of trap melody in it, which represents the ‘naughty’ side of the song very well. At first, I was pessimistic that I could enjoy “Bae Bae” as much as I enjoyed “Loser”. But when I heard the chorus part, I scratched that. I just fell in love in an instant for this song, perhaps even deeper than “Loser”. The melody just got stuck in my head like a sticky rice cake.

Lyrically, “Bae Bae” talks about how the physical attraction could give a flame toward a relationship. Well, some women might find it quite offensive towards sexuality, but since I love Big Bang, I don’t find it any offensive at all (okay, I’m in a repressive desublimation here). Matter of fact, I find it quite romantic. “I’m in love, I’m blind with love. No pants on with a white shirt. Are you a human or an angel? Oh Jesus, you’re dazzling, (need a) sunglass. My mind is so out of it. I’m possessed by you. Blood is rushing to that one place again. It’s dangerous, you’re so dangerous. Save me, call the police.” Why is it romantic? Because in particular, it’s about how a man is kneeling down before a woman’s beauty. It’s how the woman’s sex appeal can make a man so drunk, blind and going wild, crazy. Admit it, we, women, we like to dominate. And if we can do it with our goods, why not? “Your eyes are pretty like a deer, my princess. When you laugh at me, it looks so chic. Are you crazy? You’re a natural beauty, so unique, so unique. My perfect dear, be my muse. We’re so comfortable together. I’m gaining so much weight. My body wraps around yours so perfectly. You’re forever twenty-five to me, won’t ever change, five times five.”

Even man-woman relationship is about a power relation. And for women, beauty is a weapon; a mean to gain power over men. “Baby baby, can you stay beautiful just like you are right now? So my heart can race even after time passes. Baby baby, don’t wither. This is all for the selfish me. You have to stay just as you are right now.” People say that a beauty, in terms of appearances, is artificial. That it doesn’t last forever unless it has an inner beauty from within. Okay, let’s not take this that far. Sad but true, physical appearance is the first gate of human’s attraction. And don’t underestimate its power to maintain the strength of feelings. It’s not a sin for a man wanting his lover to stay beautiful, and it’s natural for a woman wanting to stay beautiful for her lover too. “I’m a man who’s holding a pretty flower; a man who’s holding a flower called you, whom everyone loves. I’m drunk with your scent. I’m getting hazy again. Don’t get plucked away, please.” As long as it gives satisfaction towards both parties, it’s fine. As long as it keeps the chemistry as sticky and yummy as a rice cake, it’s beyond okay. Who doesn’t like a rice cake, anyway? I love it. It’s addictive, and it’s good for your health. “Like a rice cake, our chemistry.”

T.O.P in the "Bae Bae" music video

A music video for “Bae Bae” was premiered on Mnet on April 30th 2015. It was directed by Seo Hyun Seung, who previously directed Big Bang’s big hit “Fantastic Baby”. The video gained critical acclaim with Billboard said it’s the most sexual K-pop videos from a male group ever, and Vulture stated, “Big Bang is the best at blending aesthetics, and the music video is a prime example of how they jump from romance-novel realness to the Mad Hatter-like psychedelic bumblebee in.” “Bae Bae” is crazy yet satisfying me in every sense that a song can satisfy people, like an addictively delicious rice cake melting in my mouth.

I’m a man who’s holding a pretty flower; a man who’s holding a flower called you, whom everyone loves. I’m drunk with your scent. I’m getting hazy again. Don’t get plucked away, please.” –Big Bang, Bae Bae
