Good afternoon everyone! We are back with another V.Friends review, this time for the V.LIVE channel “V PICK!”. As per usual, each review contains our honest opinions of the content featured by V.LIVE, usually spaced out by three categories for Lily’s reviews: video quality, video content, video editing & audio.
Today, we will be talking about a V Pick! video titled [BTS] 오늘도 평화로운 김덜렁씨의 하루 (RM talking about his mixtape ‘MONO’) which showcases clips from the main video, RM MONO Behind 😎
In this V PICK! video, we see the best moments from RM’s VLIVE video, including some funny moments that occurred while recording. As you all may guess, not everything goes as planned during VLIVE recordings, and sometimes we are left with some cute, funny wholesome scenes that showcase how artists are humans too. For example, in the video RM accidentally bumps into his skateboards as he walks out of his studio. The camera continues rolling as he cleans them on the other side, so you’re left just staring at his studio which is FILLED with bearbricks and tons of figurines.
The video is quite short, but I decided to watch his full video on the BTS VLIVE channel where he talks more in-depth about his mixtape. If you haven’t already done so, you should really listen to it! As he said, he was hoping to have his fans ‘feel’ that they’re in a certain situation or season when listening to the album, and trust me, that’s exactly how I felt (I absolutely adore track ‘Seoul’). I don’t want to spoil everything that happens in the main video, so make sure to check that out as linked above!
Now to review the quality of the video, I would rate it ★★★★☆ 4 out of 5 stars. The quality of the video is quite HD and you can clearly make out everything shown in each picture frame. The only thing that sort of threw me off was the filter that’s probably placed on the video. It sorta makes RM look pale, but I suppose that’s not a bad thing. It’s just nice to see them naturally!
As for the video content, the VPICK video is short, but per usual, most VPICK videos are short considering they are just clips from the main video. I did enjoy the funny casual clips that were inserted, and also the main point, which was RM talking about his mixtape. The end clip which was “technical difficulties” during the VLIVE also was quite humorous. I would give the content also a ★★★★☆ 4 out of 5 stars.
Lastly, let’s review the video editing and audio. I LOVE the video editing in the V PICK video. I always find the cute captions and word art popping on the bottom always quite pleasurable to watch because it reminds me of those Korean variety shows like Running Man and the Return of Superman or even We Got Married. The clips also flowed very well so editing wise, it was total 5 out of 5. As for audio, apart from the ending technical difficulties which were meant to be part of the video, the audio was crisp and clear with or without headphones. I absolutely dislike it when speaker audio and headphone audio sounds different, but this was overall pretty smooth and the same. Because of that, audio also gets a 5 out of 5, bringing the average of this category to ★★★★★ 5 out of 5!
Overall, I enjoyed watching the V PICK and then proceeding to watch the actual VLIVE video from the BTS channel. I actually didn’t know what V PICK was up until this review, and you can certainly bet I’ll be watching more of these smaller videos on my spare time if I ever miss a vlive from my favorite groups. The overall rating for this is 4.7 stars out of 5! 🙂
