B1A4 – Water Drop

This has to be the most chill zombie apocalypse in history. The song, written by Sandeul the leek-beater (not a euphemism), is a mellow tune, about being a drop of dew in the mountains.

The original video finds the boys singing in a grubby laundrette, apparently unaware of the zombie horde creeping up on them.

Water Drop – Special Clip

And if you recognise the zombies, you might have met them on a Train To Busan. Yep, these are professional and well-travelled zombies – no shamblers off the street for our boys.

“But wait!” I hear you cry. “A drop of water flowing down to the ocean – what’s that got to do with zombies?”

To which my reply is “Zombies make everything better”, which is the best you’re going to get out of me.

Which To Watch?

  • Unless you’re a fan, watch the Special clip;
  • If you are a fan, you’ll have already watched the Special clip, but you might not have seen the second MV. It’s part of the Documentary Live series, recorded live and in one take, and part of the charm is that they don’t let occasional glitches or outright corpsing (oh, how apropos) faze them – they just bite their lips, look the other way, and try to carry on;
  • If you want to know what they’re singing about, or want to sing along, go for the Lyrics – as usual, contains English translation, romanisation, and hangul.
