YesAsia Editorial Description

After the huge success of last year's Fiction and Fact, BEAST is back with their fifth mini-album Midnight Sun. Composed by Shinsadong Tiger and Choi Kyu Sung, the advance track Midnight is a catchy, lyrical number themed around a night in which love and music are awakened. The lead single "Beautiful Night" is a powerful electro synthpop song that departs from the style of their previous beat-heavy dance tracks. Member Jun Hyung continues to take an increasingly active songwriting role in BEAST's albums, penning the rap lyrics for most songs and participating in the composition and arrangement of "Your Day Off" and Dream Girl.

Note: Due to fragile nature of original product packaging, the outer plastic casing of this product may be dented. No returns because of defective outer plastic case will be accepted.

2012년 여름을 통쾌하게 물들일 비스트 대망의 신보
[Midnight Sun]

한여름 해가 지지 않는 극지의 아름다움이 비스트의 음악 속으로 들어왔다. 2011년의 메가히트작 'Fiction'에 이어 1년 2개월 만에 선보이는 비스트의 미니 5집 앨범 [Midnight Sun]은 이 여름을 잠 못 들게 할 여섯 색깔의 음악으로 꽉 차 있다.
음악과 사랑, 모든 감수성이 깨어나는 밤이란 테마 아래, 미리 공개된 1번 트랙 'Midnight (별 헤는 밤)'을 비롯, 타이틀곡 '아름다운 밤이야' 등 비스트의 이번 신보는 멤버들의 넘치는 개성만큼이나 다양한 이야기를 들려준다.

기존의 K-POP 트렌드 속에서 예상 밖의 시도를 보인 선공개 곡 'Midnight'는 발표 직후 팬들의 뜨거운 반응을 이끌어냈다. 'Midnight'가 사랑의 아픔으로 잠들지 못하는 밤의 서정을 노래한 반면, 타이틀곡 '아름다운 밤이야'는 그간의 비스트 이미지를 단숨에 변신시키는 파워 넘치는 일렉트로 신스 팝이다.

비스트의 '아름다운 밤이야'에는 넓은 음악적 스펙트럼을 자유자재로 활용하는 자신감이 돋보이는데, 뻔한 일렉트로닉 뮤직에 그들만의 독특한 감수성을 부여하여 대단히 신선한 결과물을 탄생시켰다. 다양한 곡 구성을 가지고 노는 멤버들의 능수능란함은 6인 6색의 보이스와 어울려 곡이 끝날 때까지 지루할 틈을 허락하지 않는다.
두 곡의 메인 넘버 이외에도, 이번 앨범에는 오랜 기다림이 아깝지 않은 곡들이 화려하게 포진해 있는데, '내가 아니야'와 '니가 쉬는 날'은 K-POP의 가사에서 즐길 수 있는 공감과 재미를 만끽하게 한다. 펑키한 멜로디와 거침 없는 가사가 이루는 묘한 앙상블은 그 자체로 즐길 거리이다. 또한 비스트 특유의 진정 어린 슬로우 곡 '니가 보고 싶어지면'과 'Dream Girl'은 자극적인 음악에 지친 귀를 편히 달래주는 여백의 미학이다. 두 곡에서 담담히 노래하는 비스트는 보컬 그룹으로서의 면모를 다시 한 번 각인시키고 있다.

2011년의 화려한 정상 등극, 2012년의 월드 투어 등 스스로에 대한 기대를 느껴온 비스트는 그 기다림이 헛되지 않을 만반의 준비를 마쳤다. 이제 1년 2개월을 기다려온, 뜨거운 여름이 반가운 여섯 청춘의 비상이 시작된다.

Midnight sun REGULAR version Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I got it as a present from my boyfriend and I was really excited.

It is a book sized album that comes in a transparent plastic box, once you remove the plastic box you can see the metal? mask which is sticked in the front of it. The problem of it is the glue they used, mine didn't come off of its place, in my case, the mask slowly slipped through the cover leaving a path of glue.. but i managed to put it back on its place.

Songs are really good, and the photobook as well, it comes with a lot of pictures of the NY photoshoot. I personally don't like their fashion style here but it is something based on my personal taste haha.

I would buy it again, definetly.

OH MY GAWD Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I ordered the limited edition mainly because of all the pretty pictures it contains (I looked it up before buying it) and I'm not disappointed at all! Basically, there are the members' cards, a bigger kind-of-3D card that looks amazingly cute (I'm Dongwoon biased and he looks adorable), a screen cleaner (or whatever it is, it still managed to get my cellphone pretty and shiny ~), a card holder (I don't even know how this is called, but you can put cards in it), the photobook and the CD of course!

That was an overall review of what you have inside it. Now, on to the individual reviews.

The package is pretty big! It's made of cardboard with a plastic around it, my plastic was a bit broken in a corner, but nothing big ~ Other than that, the box itself seems pretty well made! There's more plastic in the box, making each side of it stay where they are. My cards were actually a bit mixed up because of their journey to my apartment, but they were still intact of course! On the left side, there's a total of 12 little cards (2 for each member), 1 bigger kind-of-3D card, a card holder and a screen cleaner (or whatever those are).

On the right side, there's the photobook with TONS of pictures (believe me, I'm making wallpapers out of these because they're just amazing), and under it there's the CD itself (looks amazing too, and this is a future graphic designer's opinion). It's made of a weird foam-like material that makes the CD pretty hard to get, but it does its job in making it stay in place!

The photobook itself is just wonderful. I don't know why there's a golden card with a number on it, but it's cool xD Maybe it's just to make sure you have a real one or something. Anyway! I'm in love with the pictures *.* Maybe just a bit sad there isn't any picture from the water photoshoot... but I ordered the normal version too, so it's okay xD Basically, if I follow the numbers on the pages, there are 78 pages of pictures! Which is a lot, considering the fact that it's an album xD

And the music. OH GAWD. I can't even say how wonderful it is. I'm in love. Just that. There's something that's different from other bands... I can't pinpoint what it is, it's just amazing =) I think it's weird listening to the Korean version of Midnight though, because I got used to the Japanese one with the MV xD Oh well, I'll have to learn this one too xD

Overall, it's WONDERFUL and TOTALLY worth the money! If you're a B2UTY (even if you're a new one, like me), it's a MUST to your collection!

The Music Is SO Good Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
People have already described the cover, so all I'll say that my mask was still attached when it arrived.

When you open the CD, the CD is on the right and the photobook is on the left. Be careful when opening it, because the weight on both sides isn't balanced. The mask and the photobook make one side heavier, and that could probably cause some damage. Or, at least a heart attack. Also, on the photobook. Don't open the pages too far. It makes the spine let out the most terrible cracking sound. I wish that the people who designed this case had thought of these things, because they could have made it so much better.

The pictures in the photobook were nice though. The first half was fun and artsy, and the second half more subdued. I really loved the clothes that they wore, mostly because it was so interesting to look at! I also noticed that with other BEAST products that I've purchased, they always show the members in the same order. First DuJun, then Hyunseung, followed by Junhyung, Yoseob, Gikwang, and finally Dongwoon. Oh! I forgot to mention that my little card was of Dongwoon. He's my favourite member, so I was very happy!

The music on this album is amazing. I loved each song, and not one sounded like the other. I would say that my favourite song is a tie between the ballad "When I Miss You" and "Wasn't Me". Both are so different, "Wasn't Me" sounding all cocky and laid back, and "When I Miss You" is just so sweet. My ONE complaint for "When I Miss You" is for the lines to be more evenly distributed. Yoseob sings the chorus with Dongwoon and a part all on his own, Junhyun raps twice, but the other members only sing once each. "Your Day Off" is, pardon my word choice, groovy! It's got a funk-like bass that just makes you want to dance. "Midnight Sun" sounds better in Korean, but that's just my biased opinion.

Although the design for the CD wasn't the best, the music was worth it. I would recommend this if you want variation in your album, or more bang for your buck. I hope this review helps you to decide to buy it!

Midnight Sun Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
This album was pretty easy and simple as other CD's but the front cover was quite different from the others, with a mask and loose mini chains. The CD is very colourful and fun and the photobook which included the unserious concept and the serious concept of BEAST. I got Hyunseung's photocard, which is one of my favorite members in B2ST so I'm happy that I got him ^__^ This is a fun and pretty album~

This customer review refers to BEAST Mini Album Vol. 5 - Midnight Sun (Limited Edition) + Poster in Tube
This album is freaking amazing!!!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This limited edition album is amazing! You get all of the members photo cards (signed and wedding cards)!!! The 3d card is cute too. I love my b2st wallet that comes along with it! I now carry around a picture of Yoseob in it <3 For some dumb reason, cube decided to add a mobile device cleaner (I'd rather have shirtless pics.) but I use it sometimes though.

Now to the photo book. The pictures are dreamy and creative! You'll feel like you're actually getting married to b2st! They look so hot and drop-dead handsome! Each member gives a different groom feel to the photos! There are a lot of photos, B2uties! The photo book even has a behind story on the making of midnight sun! There is also some kind of b2st golden card in the front of the booklet (Not sure if it is necessary) that looks awesome.


But beware! The album is very fragile and can break easily if dropped (I broke mine in less than thirty minutes :( ). The CD holder is made out of Styrofoam/paper like material and can also break if CD is pulled to hard (Mine broke). However B2uties this is worth the money! Trust Me!

The music is spectacular and amazing! This album offers a different range of music for a k-poper that is looking for an awesome boy band. I have converted people into b2uties by using this album. It works! The songs make me proud :')

The poster is hot too! I love my poster to death :) I have it stored away so that no damage can come to it! Buy it B2uties before this is gone! You won't regret it! Don't you wanna marry your oppas?
