The song is so.... dated? like 2012 dated. I was expecting some rapping, but not like 80% of the song to be rapping. 6/9 of them are rappers, with Chan/Chris doing double duty as a vocalist, which explains it I guess. I'll still watch the survival show probably, but JYPE needs to work on getting them better songs in the future..

Apparently the song and choreo were done by the guys themselves... I guess JYPE is really pushing for them to be the self-producing type of idols.

On another note, Stray Kids isn't the groups final name, just the survival show name. I've kind of gotten attached to it already though...

Ok hold up, this isn't half bad though. The rap line sound good too.

jype spent some money on a pre-debut mv?
its not bad for a self produced track. if chris did this though - i know he can do better. i have evidence in the form of 3racha songs. maybe he isn't used to producing for so many people?

surprise of the century though - JISUNG can sing?

also omg everyone stay away from the kid WHO STILL HAS BRACES. JYP WHY?
showminomoney 6th-Oct-2017 03:57 am (UTC)
I knooow.. chris' 3racha songs are the reason i'm kind of underwhelmed by this. lol It's not too bad though, but not really something I'd repeat as much as like tik tok or pace. Producing for 3 rappers -> 6 is probably a challenge, so I'm fine w it.

i like it!!!!! i don't care that the sound is dated, it's a jam lol. i like them already, and i'm excited for their show! i do want to get to know them better tho
hilary_faye 6th-Oct-2017 04:10 am (UTC)
idk what i expected but this was a lot better than whatever i thought it was going to be.

I love the song but some of them can't sing.
This is a recurring problem with JYPE, they hype up the ones who aren't as great.
Also JYPE has the best producers when it comes to writing singles. Even Got7 has an amazing list of singles ruined by JB and Yugyeom's voices.
Their rapper (the first one) isn't half bad.

Also I love the name Stray Kids. Its the most inspired name I've heard in K-Pop since Twice.

I love the group's name too.

The group doesnt seems to be JYP type or produced by JYP? Like where is the ugly outfit and struggling rapping, they dont even have the half air half voice thing going on. The rappers sounds good tho.

havent listened to the song yet, but the oldest is a 97er? damn i feel old
dynamite_state 6th-Oct-2017 10:46 am (UTC)
I like it more than the Flight Log title tracks, I could hear Monsta X taking this to places. Is this what I want though?? Nooooooo

PS Kim Lip did that set much better, let me promote her a bit


Based on the twitter thread, I'm a fan of the vocal line, mostly Woojin. I thought I saw Gikwang in the video, turns out that was Chan.

Here's the only other Woojin vid I've been able to find so far. I can kinda see Gikwang! It's the lips and the fluffy hair that Gikwang's been wearing lately.

awful
yxerin 6th-Oct-2017 12:07 pm (UTC)
well, this is kinda catchy? i'm actually surprised. it follows the instrumental chorus trend that's been done to hell and back the last couple of years and which i'm positively tired of, but still... not bad. the word "hellevator" sounds dumb as shit though ngl
avrgaesthetics 6th-Oct-2017 12:50 pm (UTC)
kim lip and choerry’s impact tbh!!!

i hope their future releases are less generic and showcase their individual talents more! i know it’s silly to hope a kpop company doesn’t abuse their talent, but plz jyp let these kids live omg.
mlmello 6th-Oct-2017 04:10 pm (UTC)
I like some angst kpop, but this song was really generic.
kind of weird to see a jype group with decent rappers lol the vocalists tho... not my cup of tea, just like I really don't like jb's voice at all.

I'm curious about these boys so I'll def check their survival, but I hope they release more dynamic songs during the show.
dickslikejesus 7th-Oct-2017 12:37 am (UTC)
Honestly, I don't mind that it feels old or anything, I actually think everything is fine. My problem is that the name doesn't fit the way the chorus sounds AT ALL. How do you make the song so upbeat and fun when you sing about being on an Hellevator in a song that comes out in fucking october?

Try again and come back.
