One Shot

As a woman, I adore a man who has a vision. Brilliant enough to stand a perspective, brave enough to take a stand-point, wise enough to encourage other people. Moreover, I love a man who makes an action. Smart enough to take a step, brave enough to give supports, wise enough to choose their way to do it. And I found those qualities in the boys of B.A.P. Their music and lyrics are full of visions. Their songs and performances prove their actions. We only live once, and even if it’s just a one shot of chance, they bravely take the challenge to make a change. So here is the last selected song of B.A.P for the Male Special Part 1: Band of Brothers.

There’s only one chance as you walk on this dark path. Shine the light like Martin Luther King. Get your mind outta the gutter. It’s too early for failure, you’re still young. One shot, one chance, there’s no second chance. Don’t lose it, get ready now. Hell yeah, challenge yourself. Spread your small self out, just do it.” –B.A.P, One Shot

Today’s song for Band of Brothers is titled “One Shot”. B.A.P released it on February 12th 2013 as title song for their second EP of the same name. This upbeat hip-hop track was written by composers Kang Ji Won and Kim Ki Bum, same producers team who brought B.A.P’s previous hits like “Warrior (워리어)” and “Power” into fame. And yes, listening to “One Shot” will make us reminiscing all over again the group’s original spirits when they debuted back then with “Warrior (워리어)”. It’s actually a great refreshment though, after they blow us with a sugar-pop track like “Stop It (하지마)”, they pump up our adrenaline again, remind us to the starting point again, and all, with this song, “One Shot”, a thrilling heart-pounding track.

The lyrics of “One Shot” bring the spirit of Y.O.L.O (yup, you only live once), that life is a one shot of a chance. “There’s only one chance as you walk on this dark path. Shine the light like Martin Luther King. Get your mind outta the gutter. It’s too early for failure, you’re still young. One shot, one chance, there’s no second chance. Don’t lose it, get ready now. Hell yeah, challenge yourself. Spread your small self out, just do it.” Knowing the fact that you only got one shot, what would you do about that? What would you use it for? “Shake your head and say no to being a slave to laziness. All those who don’t try, wake up right now. You want a high position by just sitting in your room? This isn’t a game, why can’t you separate it from reality? Oh yeah, go around a track. Time keeps turning and turning, so far away. Only those who are ready can really talk. Staying in the same place will only make you regret when you close your eyes.”
The thing about life is, at some point people got trapped in situation, stuck in a moment and can’t seem to get out of it. Whether it’s an up or a down, there’s a time when we lack of spirits to move forward. “One shot! Are you gonna give in? Are you gonna be caught by the surrounding traps? Only one shot! Don’t run away. Turn around and face your faces. Even if the world turns away from you, protect yourself, that’s the right attitude.” Sometimes all we need is a hard reality-slap on our faces to make us awake; find our spirits, get back on our feet, think and do something. “One shot! Are you going to be a victim? Are you going to get lost, looking for an easy way out? Only one shot! Turn your face to the rough world and clash and fight. Even if the high walls try to block you, jump over it all, even if you fall every time.” Indeed life is a never ending battle we must fight until the end of our time. “Everybody already know? Hey shout your voice to the world!”
No matter how many times life tries to bring us down, we can’t stay grounded forever, we can’t keep hidden all the time. The only way out is to break it away, turn it as steps to climb back up. “The parts of you that are hidden by fog, burn yourself with passion that’s hotter than the sun. Run and go away, don’t look back. Don’t stop, go away, don’t lose yourself.” We can’t turn back the time, and every moment of it is worth the life. The least we can do is not to take it for granted and make it wasted. The most we can do is to use it to the fullest and make the best of it. “I can’t step back on this endless path, don’t be shaken. I can’t trap myself in this time of confusion, there’s only one chance.” For life is a one shot of chance. Nothing lasts forever, and you only live once. “Only one shot, bite down hard and go against them. Only one shot, throw yourself at the world. You only have one chance u know? You only have last chance u know?”

B.A.P in the "One Shot" music video

The music video for “One Shot” was shot in South Korea and Philippines, and again, directed by Hong Won Ki of ZanyBros. It cost approximately one billion KRW (about 915,000 USD), making it into the list of most expensive music videos ever made of all time (Ayumi Hamasaki, T-ara, and B.A.P are the only Asian artists to appear on the list). The storyline of the video has a surprising plot twist, with an alternate ending presented at the end. Not only it features great acting capability from Bang Yong Guk and Youngjae in particular, but the video also proves B.A.P’s passionate ambition for their piece of art. It’s mind-blowing! Now that they’ve reached an agreement in the legal case with their label TS Entertainment, I’m hoping to see more of them in the near future.

Shake your head and say no to being a slave to laziness. All those who don’t try, wake up right now. You want a high position by just sitting in your room? This isn’t a game, why can’t you separate it from reality? Oh yeah, go around a track. Time keeps turning and turning, so far away. Only those who are ready can really talk. Staying in the same place will only make you regret when you close your eyes.” –B.A.P, One Shot
