i absolutely hate that part between 0:46 and 0:50. Whoever came up with it should be fired. Everything else is pretty nice so it's even worse that the first impression is so bad.

It's an ok song but if it wasn't Twice I wouldn't care about it all. It's very basic imo

it's catchy in the usual bland Twice way but i was expecting the song to end much earlier than it actually did, at 3:26, the refrain/dance break? is unnecessary and made the song too long.

I like the song a lot but I wish the shouting "yes or yes" section of the chorus wasn't aegyo voices!!! The whole rest of the song I feel like they use fairly normal singing/speaking voices and then that had to be thrown in ofc. I don't mind cute concepts but Twice needs to let them go already, they've done all they can do with it and it's time to move on. If only JYPE had a shred of decent creative direction.

Seeing the full choreo is what I'm looking forward to most. The MV is just ok, it's really more of the same.

Other than the yes or yes during the chorus idk what about this is cute?

I’m twice trash so I love this!! I’m not a big fan of the lyrics like others have mentioned.

it’s catchy and the girls all look really good!! I’m excited to get my album in the mail!

I love Twice, but this song may as well be the anthem for rapist. I’ll pass on those lyrics.

it's ok. i feel like i'll enjoy the live more bc the choreography looks like so much fun.

but twice is starting to remind me of blackpink in the sense of getting away with doing the same damn thing over and over again.

They've far surpassed BlackPink with that. Twice just does more so they're fans are more forgiving.
Blackpink releases one song per year, so I'm sure they're fans are pissed that the one release they get is a knockoff of a knockoff.

these lyrics .. in 2018. what is jyp thinking

A small red flag went off in the back of my head once the first spoken word bit in the teaser came out, but I hoped it would be more cheeky (à la Pick Me) than forceful. This is a no from me.

Also it's very disconcerting to see some people admit that they're not really bothered by the lyrics since they're coming from a girl group and not a boy group. "I respect your choice but I reject your rejection" is easily one of the creepiest things I've heard in a song this year and it's being wrapped up in inoffensive pop song packaging. Get upset. This is yet another drop in the ocean of South Korea's rampant dating violence.

I prefer the song to the video which is unheard of when it comes to Twice (For me at least.)

My two faves (Jeong and Momo) got a lot of lines this time around. But I listened to the whole mini-album and it's kind of flat for a Twice mini. They usually have one or two b-sides that really blow the title track out of the water. But I'm a bit bored.

They choreo looks exciting so I'm ready for the stages.

The concept seemed good on paper, especially with the Halloween witch theme. But it didn’t feel so well put together. At least the girls have great hairstyles that are different this time!

Song wise, I love that Momo Jeongyeon and Mina have so many lines. Momo sounded so good in that chorus part. Chaeyoung Tzuyu and Sana got the short end of the stick this time though. My fave parts are definitely the verses

I think one of the main things that is lacking is that there isn’t a stand out line like Cheer Up, TT, Likey, Heart Shaker.
xlovexlessxtyx 5th-Nov-2018 03:26 pm (UTC)
Tzuyu got quite a bit didn't she?
Though Chae has been on the backburner for quite a few singles now, I'm ready for her to have a moment.

I'm a big fan of the music video itself the set design and background animations are lush and definitely an improvement on some of the other vids they've done. the colour palettes calling back to their last halloween time vid is cute.

"I respect your choice but I reject your rejection" is killing me. omg they should have cut that. especially coming from a male songwriter -_-

it's nice to see their choreo being more energetic!

Yea IA about the MV, I thought it was a big improvement over DTNA. I love that song but the MV is so average

I’m not into this at all. The lyrics are just appalling.

Eta: The rest isn’t my cup of tea either but the lyrics are the one aspect that make me go “Why did they think this was acceptable to release?!” especially after they got criticism for Cheer Up’s “like a real man” lyrics.

their shtick is sooooo tired. all of their songs are starting blend together and their looks too. like nothing is distinguishable between the different eras. the last thing that wowed me from them was the signal remix they did at one of the year end shows last year.

and when these girls do a ten year concert or something in the future and have to perform all these kidz bop songs at 30 or nearly 30 is gonna be... something. there’s no variety in their catalog at all.
lil_poisonfrog 5th-Nov-2018 03:52 pm (UTC)
You're generous assuming they'll have any kind of 10 year concert....you mean like the one we got for Wonder Girls lol.
goshipgurl 5th-Nov-2018 03:42 pm (UTC)
I haven't listened to the song yet but I looked up the lyrics online and yiiiiikes
goshipgurl 5th-Nov-2018 04:59 pm (UTC)
just watched the mv, and this is by far their most boring title track. the girls also don't look to thrilled. and i can't get over these lyrics, who thought that this would be a good idea? i'm putting them on the list for my next quesionable kpop lyrics post
miwa201 5th-Nov-2018 03:44 pm (UTC)
i'm so disappointed. i already knew i wouldn't like this from the intro but it's so bland. i've been losing interest in twice for a while and it makes me sad bc i loved them a lot back in 2016. it's probably bc in general i've only ever liked the wonder girls out of jype groups. i get that jype isn't planning on changing their concept anytime soon (which imo is cowardly bc snsd changed their concepts several times at the peak of their popularity) but at least hire a new stylist. and yes, the lyrics are trash but i'm not surprised to see onces defending them

i'm glad jeongyeon got a lot of lines bc at least now her stans can stop moaning for a bit

The lyrics are promoting stalking; that is very clear imo, and they should not have been used at all, let alone be for the title track. But I do think some people are taking it too far when they say it's promoting rape culture. I understand the issue of 'no means no' but even that needs to be put in context. I'm not defending the song, it's trash (all of it) and I hope it's forgotten by next week, I just don't see it.

I don't get why any fan would bother defend lyrics their fave's has nothing to do with.. I mean the girls didn't write this shit, and it's a known fact they have no say in choosing their tracks. So who are they defending exactly? JYPE?
