Break Time is the fourth extended play by South Korean band U-KISS, released on October 4, 2010. The lead single was "Shut Up!!". It is the last EP by U-KISS to feature members Alexander Lee Eusebio and Kimi Ki-bum.
Release and reception
The physical CD was released in South Korea October 4, 2010. Digital downloads were available worldwide that same day. It proceeded to be released in the Philippines March 24, 2011. The original single for the EP was originally supposed to be "Light It Up", composed by Kim Tae-wan, but upon hearing Kim Tae-hyun's "Shut Up!!" (시끄러!!; Siggeureo!!), the group shifted to use the latter instead. The song was recorded at More Than Present's studio in Seoul, Korea in August, 2010, and is based on hardcore electronic sounds while emphasizing performance factors.
U-KISS began promotions of Break Time with a performance of "Shut Up!!" on Mnet's M!Countdown on October 7, the same day the song's music video was released. The setting for the video is a train station, with U-KISS on the platform. It begins with member Eli riding a motorcycle while chasing a woman. It then shifts to Shin Dongho sitting on one side while singing his part. It also features a trio-rap from Alexander, Ki-bum, and Eli Kim who chase a woman. The original version of the music video was flagged by YouTube for content inappropriate to minors, due to scenes in which the members are shirtless and appear with a woman. A less graphic version of the video was revealed on October 8, and a new version for TV broadcast was released on October 29.
