There's a few good shots but I expected the MV to be a lot prettier
The song is nice, very SNSDish

It reminds me a lot of what SNSD were doing in Japan (even visually it reminds me a bit of the darker scenes in Flower Power) and I'm totally here for that!

Ia 100%!

See, while the choreography evokes GG the song reminds me a bit more of Nine Muses. Or maybe the hat just has me thinking of 'Dolls' LOL
myungung 1st-Feb-2018 03:38 pm (UTC)
it really does sound like what Soshi would release!
synatri 1st-Feb-2018 05:43 pm (UTC)
YES the song+visuals strongly reminded me of snsd.
gathyou 1st-Feb-2018 09:38 am (UTC)
I love it! it's such a bop, and the lyrics are so confident too. I wish the instrumental was a little less sparse at times but it works, their vocals make the song
The choreo looks nice, I wasn't expecting that dance break!
AND THEY ALL LOOK AMAZING good job on the styling

Loved this from start to finish. Mina looked ill at ease though, or maybe's that just me.

I enjoyed this a lot but from the mv teaser I expected the song to have more going on instrumental wise. They sound and look good, the mv is simple but I still think it's pretty!

I really really love this!!! Maybe because I'm a sucker for gugudan anyway, but the song is super catchy and they all look amazing. Can't wait for the live stages.

my comment might be null and void because i stan them but

YES COME THROUGH MY DAUGHTERS!!!

Even though I wish that Jelpi would have more story-related MVs (like VIXX's 2016 Conception should have been), I really like this. The song sounds like an SNSD-AOA hybrid and I am here for this!! Their voices really make the song, and i love the choreography and eVERYTHING.

STAN TALENT STAN GUGUDAN

i wish the line distribution would be a bit more even like i feel soyee and haebin got the short straws yet again but i haven't seen the line distribution yet, so this is just based upon what i hear

THE LINE DISTRIBUTION IS RIDICULOUS!! Justice for the 8 other girls in Gugudan.

I kind of wish the chorus had more oomph (especially the last one - it doesn't have enough power to justify that quiet moment just after that FIRE dance break and thus totally sucked all the momentum out of the song) but the feel overall is perfect for the season so i feel like this will do well!
demeulemeester 1st-Feb-2018 12:36 pm (UTC)
the mv is so pretty and i love the instrumental. i find the vocals/lyrics on top kinda lacking, i wish they were a little catchier? idk how to describe it. overall i like it though.

Okay, you're telling me I had to wait for the end of the mv to see a single cat?! I'M SAD. I thought there'd be more cats y'all!

Loving the song and choreo. Their voices are really nice.

Song's more 2013 than 2018. Not the worst, but I wish it was fresher. What can they do since their magnum opus single AGLM already came out... Leaning on the whistle already feels like defeat, smells like a flop but still rooting for you gugu.

miwa201 1st-Feb-2018 02:21 pm (UTC)
this is nice but the music video is sejeong & mina ft. the rest. soyee barely had any screentime or lines
dior_chic 1st-Feb-2018 02:23 pm (UTC)
Yea I definitely noticed that, it feels like why have a 9 member group when you only focus on a fraction of the group
xlovexlessxtyx 1st-Feb-2018 02:40 pm (UTC)
Isn't Sejeong the most popular member?
I mean it'd make sense to capitalize on her image if it's for the benefit of the entire group's success.

But I get what you're saying.
miwa201 1st-Feb-2018 02:47 pm (UTC)
yes, she's the most popular but she has a lot of akgaes who hate the other members and want her to go solo.
adenar 1st-Feb-2018 06:58 pm (UTC)
This is true but they've done the balance a lot better in the past - I consider AGLM a really good example of a song with a reasonable line distribution that features the most famous members (the pd101 trio) most, without completely ignoring most of the other members.
myungung 1st-Feb-2018 03:40 pm (UTC)
I love me some gugudan, so even though this comes off as biased, I still like this song? Dance break is great to have definitely.

The MV is rather pretty for a box MV, but the screentime and line distribution worries me though. Hopefully the live performances show better distribution, cos Soyee and Haebin are not main/lead vocals for nothing. Although I love Sejeong's voice and performances, there is a tad too much of her here.
ginger_star 1st-Feb-2018 03:47 pm (UTC)
Well I like it more than Chococo but less than A Girl Like Me (god that song set the bar so high...). idk I just expected more and I can't really describe in what way.

That said its still going on my playlist and I love love love the styling. I will for sure be buying this when I go to Seoul in April.

Still hoping for a full acapella version of this *crosses fingers*

i like chococo more than this /unpopular opinion
synatri 1st-Feb-2018 05:48 pm (UTC)
I kind of like the song, but i feel it lacks the oomph?? or the weirdness that i associate with gugudan, it comes off slightly... generic, tbph. It sounds like something snsd would release. They're all gorgeous, but overall I think I prefer a girl like me or even chococo over this. Would still bop to it though!
frequency 1st-Feb-2018 06:21 pm (UTC)
i love it!!
yxerin 1st-Feb-2018 06:33 pm (UTC)
the dance break saved the song imo, like it's catchy but that added the extra flair the track needed. i'm not into the aesthetic or the mv though, it gives me an outdated late 2000's vibe. magical cat witches is a cute concept tho and i like the lyrics, time to go fulfill myself through material possessions

I like it a lot! It's definitely not as bombastic as AGLM but the chorus is for sure catchier than Chococo's. I'm just glad Jelpi is letting them experiment with different sounds and concepts rather than limiting them to the same old stuff like a lot of 3rd gen ggs.

The MV is pretty...personally I don't mind a box MV at all if the visuals are nice! Ia w/ everyone above making the SNSD/AOA comparisons, too.
jaequeeragenda 1st-Feb-2018 08:58 pm (UTC)
aww nooo lolollll i prefer the acapella version D; what a plot twist lmao
antrea 1st-Feb-2018 11:01 pm (UTC)
I love this song!!!! Definitely my favorite release from them.
