I’m gonna say this is also their best comeback to date. I’ve been a casual The Boyz fan since “Giddy Up“. I loved how fun and upbeat that and the song the promoted on livestages, “Text Me Back” was. But, I never checked out the album these two songs were from (The Start). They kinda reminded me of Seventeen. But in 2018 I wasn’t trying to get attached to 12 more boys on top of my long list of faves already.
Look 1: Red & Black
I wanted these screenshots to be similar sized so badly.
This first group look is my favorite in “The Stealer”. They have so many designer products in this video. Good for them. Hyunjae wears the famous moon crescent print shirt from Marine Sere. One of the members is wearing a Prada bucket hat. There’s a Supreme gloves that pops up later. There’s Dior button down shirt Jacob wears that looks like he’s bleeding.
It’s neat. A glittery Vetements tank top. I want it.
A YSL shirt. A blazer with a belt on it from Off White. I’ll tag theboyzstyles so y’all can check out some of the other products they’re wearing. Getting back to Hyunjae, the sleeve that he wears kinda looks like a sling when he dances. I have to remind myself that no, he’s not dancing with a broken or injured arm. I like the styling here because there’s a nice mix of punk and streetwear here. You can never go wrong throwing a Kpop boy in leather pants and a harness. You just can’t.
This is also is one of the few times where I like everyone’s hair and hair color. But I’m pretty boring when it comes to this stuff. Black and brown hair is always the superior look on 99% of idols.
Look 2: All Black (with some White)
It’s mostly all black, right?
Along with there being no bad song on The Chase mini album, there are no bad outfits in this video. I approve of every look. This and the third group look tie for second place for me. I can’t choice because they both include elements of fashion y’all know are my faves. I mentioned earlier I wanted Juyeon’s Vetements tank top. I want to take this time to address it before I forget. But the power and energy he has in this video is next level. He is feelin himself and I’m here for all of it.
Look 3: More Black (and some White plus Suits)
Am I even trying with these titles? lmao
Again The Boyz are playing with concepts in their looks and I love it. There’s a mix of military uniforms, business suits, and streetwear in this group look. Their stylist(s) has mastered combining different fashion tropes into one cohesive group look. I respect them. I envy them. I’m not sure the member’s name but one of them towards the back on the right side of the screen (second pic) has a sleeveless look. Bro…BROOOOOOOOOO. That’s genius. Dare I ask for a full ot11 look based around this one outfit?
Look 4: Solo/Subunit Shots
I have a reason for cramming all these pics here.
There’s many scenes where I think they might be a solo look. Then there’s others where it’s clearly a part of a group look. It’s a closeup on that outfit and member because it’s their part in the song. So instead of trying to figure out which outfit belongs where, I put them here with the exception of one specific member. So this section is more of a picture dump but I liked these scenes too so I included them in. It’s hard to get all the members in but I tried my best.
Look 5: Kevin Moon Appreciation
I did not plan on doing this section but after working on this blog post, I couldn’t get this scene out of my mind. Now if I had to pick my favorite member of The Boyz with my limited knowledge, I chose Jacob. We have the same birthday (May 30th). But I’m obsessed with the lighting, scenery, vibe, everything here in Kevin’s solo scene. He ate it up.
Okay, I’m done for real this time.
I love going back through a group or soloist’s discography and discovering they have more music I like. Who knew I was hidden Deo Bi? Anyway what’s y’alls favorite song from The Chase? Have you listened to it yet or are you new to The Boyz? Let me know on Twitter or Tumblr.
Until next post,
