VIXX “Scentist” – The Fangirl Version

I don’t really know what I was expecting from this comeback. I didn’t love VIXX’s last two comebacks like I have for all their others, which really threw me for a loop and made me skeptical about this one.

However, what they ended up releasing was definitely better than expected. It’s hard to say with truth that this is one of my favorite singles of theirs, because come on they have released so many gems… but this is definitely my favorite comeback of theirs since Fantasy.

I had originally decided to wait until after I finished grad school to get back on this blog, but I just couldn’t NOT make this post. So, the following is everything that goes through my head as I watch VIXX’s music video for Scentist:

scentist1

My boy Hyogi starting off!
scentist2

Whoaa ok hold on, did Ken always have an ear piercing? He’s wearing an earring here, right?

scentist3

Aww yeah Ken being all fierce starting us off!

scentist4

Ooh I like the eyebrows. There is so much happening with Ken right off the bat and I love it.

scentist5

The color aesthetic of this video is beautiful. Just look at this shot.

scentist6.2

scentist6.3

live for Hakyeon’s dancing in this music video. Just look at those hand motions!

scentist7

Beautifullllllllll

scentist8

This right here is my favorite part of the music video. Hakyeon just gets so fierce out of nowhere.

scentist9

I literally jumped back in my chair when I noticed the lizard on his neck.

scentist10

Hongbin’s voice! He sounds really good here.

scentist11

So I’m not one to usually fangirl over Leo, but I’m not gonna lie this is a really nice shot.

scentist12

I look at this and I don’t see bottles; I see apples. And then it makes me think of Snow White and how amazingly amazing it would be if Jaehwan played the Huntsman in a Snow White remake…

Ok, back to the video.

scentist13

VIXX really loves their grabbing-onto-each-other moves, don’t they?

scentist14

Another beautiful shot~

scentist15

YES! Hakyeon leading the members in a dance for the win!

scentist16

Whoaaaaa hold up, where did that gun come from, Jaehwan????

scentist17

Alright, I demand to see the behind the scenes footage for this scene. There is no way that our Cha Hakyeon Mr. Scared of Everything That Moves stood there with a snake around his body without completely freaking out.

scentist18

Oooh. Changing up the aesthetic a bit but I like this. It looks really cool.

scentist19

Are they too old yet for me to see them as kids working on a school project here?

scentist20

This hair color looks amazing on Hongbin!

scentist21

Whoa since when did this video get all freedom fighter?

scentist22

I really like Hakyeon’s hair too. The styling is just so good in this video.

scentist23

Okay, I still don’t understand the significance of the kid…

scentist24

I love Jaehwan’s outfit. It reminds me of his role in The Closer.

scentist25

Listen, there is no way you are going to convince me that Jaehwan is this angsty boy waiting to shoot someone. I don’t care how good of an actor he is. He’s too fun-loving for that.

scentist26

This. Is. A. Beautiful. Shot.

Minus the gun.

scentist27

The hair!!! Pale blue is definitely his color.

scentist28

Poor Hyogi didn’t have one of those moments where he steals the show in this video. I mean he’s totally killing it in this scene, but his presence seems a little more muted than usual in this video.

scentist29

Yesss Leo playing piano keys in shadow! Such a cool concept!

scentist30

HELL YES Look at Jaehwan standing in the middle leading the final dance scene! His dancing really really shines in this comeback.

scentist31

Can we take a moment to appreciate the fact that HONGBIN is standing next to Leo finishing off the vocals of their title track? LEE HONGBIN WHO’S VOCAL COACHES SAID THAT HE COULDN’T SING SIX YEARS AGO!

I just could not capture the true fierceness of the dance in these screencaps, so please watch the full video here and bathe in the greatness:


Question of the Day:

Who do you think stole the show in this comeback? I’m tied between N and Ken.


#NowPlaying: One by Samuel ft. Ilhoon of BTOB. Guys, I haven’t loved a song this much in a really long time. It’s one of those songs that I can’t listen to just once. I have to repeat it at least once after it finishes. The instrumental break after the first chorus is so my style.
