Many K-pop fans were surprised when K-pop parody group BgA or Boys Generally Asian suddenly became #1 on Korean music charts and in an instant, everybody wanted to know about the parody group that debuted last year with a song called "Dong Saya Dae" or "I Need to Take a Sh*t". it came naturally that youtube channel FOMO Daily would receive tons of requests from fans to react to BgA'a latest video "Who's It Gonna Be?"

While the Americans were prepared for hilarity because of BgA's indentity as a parody group, the reviewers were pleasantly surprised by many positive things they saw in the video. The reviewers said that in terms of production value, the music video could really pass for a legitimate K-pop group.

They also thought that BgA got a lot of things right in the K-pop trope like the outfits and the hairstyles.

Hoontamin was already familiar with BgA since they did a review of their first single "Dong Saya Dae" last year. They were prepared for another parody video that made no sense but they were impressed this time around by the quality of the lyrics and the melody.

According to the duo, not only did BgA showcase their singing talent in the "Who's It Gonna Be?" music video, they also showed excellent pronounciation for both the English and Korean parts of the song.
