No Mercy

Women will root for men who are brave and bold enough to make a statement and stand up for it. Women adore men who have style and show confidence of it. Women will go for men who dare enough to be bad at times, break the rules, take challenges, turn inside out the ordinary. And when I say ‘women’, that includes, well, at least a woman like me. People say that girls like bad boys, but women love good guys; I personally think that that’s not all true. Women like bad boys too, come on, they’re charming, fun, and adventurous, what can we do? And, sorry to say, good guys are mostly boring; that’s an ugly truth. Some women love challenge too, and we can only find it in bad boys. For women like that, the real satisfaction is when we can conquer the bad boys. Perhaps that’s why I fall for B.A.P, the bad boys of K-Pop. For the Male Special Part 1: Band of Brothers, this is the third selected hits of B.A.P.

Being trapped in a border, I will break apart that paradigm. We so fly, I won’t follow you like a fool. Don’t compare yourself, who is like a parrot, to me.” –B.A.P, No Mercy

Today’s song for Band of Brothers is titled “No Mercy”, performed by B.A.P as the main track for the group’s first EP of the same name. The single was released digitally on July 18th 2012, while the EP was released digitally on July 19th 2012 and physically on July 24th 2012. “No Mercy” is a hip-hop dance song, written by the group’s leader Bang Yong Guk, along with composers Marco and Jeon Daun. The song brings back many of B.A.P’s signature style, especially the use of whistles in the instrumental, like one can be heard in their debut hits, “Warrior (워리어)”.

Lyrically, “No Mercy” also speak up about the group’s signature style in music; that this is how they do it and this is how they rule. “Dudes, that’s just not it. Is music a joke? It’s not it for us. Because you’re like that, I’m like this. If you weren’t like that, would I be like this? Just stop and quit it. Just go away over there. Goodness, their attitudes are really not cool. Oh my, brothers, look at them, that’s just really not it. Is ignoring and badmouthing bad guys like that really what a real man does? Rapping like this, isn’t that the good stuff?” They might be bad and rude with their words sometimes. They might be angry and mad with their actions at times. But that’s just the way they express things through their music and songs. “Only those who know, really know. They all look up to us, we are the main. They follow us. They know us well. Music is a fun game. The level of our style is different, we’re making classic. I’ll let you fully feel it. Now these are the words you all will be afraid of; we’ll be back.”
They don’t like to be compared to other male idol groups, who are cute and “doll-like”. They’re reckless but they stay true to themselves. “Being trapped in a border, I will break apart that paradigm. We so fly, I won’t follow you like a fool. Don’t compare yourself, who is like a parrot, to me.” They don’t like to become somebody they’re not. “The music is ringing and spreading, the cheers are exploding loudly.” They’ll do anything to become real, what they really are, even if it means that they have to break some rules and common boundaries. “Yo, want me to kick your butt? Let me work out. All you fakes, go away. We are worldwide.” People may think they’re childish, but they prove their maturity by expressing themselves through creativity. “No mercy! Yeah, we are the B.A.P, baby wass up! We are here. We won’t let you go so easily from now on. No mercy! Yeah, we are the B.A.P, you got it know? There’s no mercy. If you’re ready to feel us, put your hands up! Scream louder, get your hands up!”


B.A.P in "No Mercy" music video

“No Mercy” was highly praised by critics for the utilization of Gyeongsangdo dialect during the rapping parts of the song, and also the incorporation of “samul nori”, a type of traditional Korean percussion music. The music video for the song was directed by Hong Won Ki. It highlighted the change in looks of the group members, from street gangsters to “pop boys”, but keeping true to their upbeat artistry and charismatic image; making it feels like seeing those bad boys starting to grow up. It’s such a great pleasure to the eyes and ears.

You got it know? There’s no mercy. If you’re ready to feel us, put your hands up. Scream louder, get your hands up!” –B.A.P, No Mercy
