people complaining about the mv being cheap.. i WISH my other faves had even half the budget this mv had. i still think it's charming, the girls make it work.

I like it more than the teaser, but their last few releases have just been "okay" for me. Forreal tho I hope they can get a chance to rest, they must be EXHAUSTED.

Twice can sell bananas and it will still be a hit, bc they’re that charming. I’m not a big fan of some of the lyrics, but overall I really liked it much more than I expected. I really grew to love the bridge and the chorus and the fact that 3mix sings a lot on their range. All the other girls sound much better, actually. The choreo is really fun and it makes up for the low energy of some points. The MV could me more cohesive but that aesthetic is everything I love. I don’t really care about getting more serious stuff from them, although they surely can pull it off, and I have RV darker releases for it, Twice, for me, is happiness and fun, if they ever produce serious serious stuff I will still like it but not as much as the sassy stuff they do.

i don’t hate it (besides the lyrics), but it’s definitely not super memorable. they haven’t put out a song i really like since likey, unfortunately.

on the plus side, it sounds slightly less high-pitched than usual to me? apart from nayeon and sana, at least.

Jesus these lyrics are vile. Like... I am actively really creeped out. One of my (cis female) friends pulled out the "rapey" card and I have to agree with her. Toss this in the bin with War of Hormone, ugh.

This is the era of the #MeToo movement, and we're still trying to fight against rape culture and that 'no is no' (and in Korea, spycam porn), the lyrics seem pretty inappropriate for the current climate. If there wasn't a problem with consent it could be a fun song, but some people don't understand 'no', like the lyrics in the song. On the one hand, thinking like that feels like it's taking the lyrics too deeply and other other, media is culture, it influences people and represents what people are thinking...

I think the music video is really fun though... but it's kind of hard to enjoy when I can't really stomach the lyrics. :/

I used to get the "why does this matter?" question all the time in discussing my thesis, which dealt heavily with hypermasculine lyrics. The way I used to explain it was that, realistically, one song or album isn't the snap point between well-adjusted and violent misogynist. There was a lot that happened before "Helter Skelter" that made Manson a monster, after all. It's about recognizing the messages and their consistency. "Yes and Yes" contributes to a social climate that devalues consent. That's why it's important to notate it.

the choreo is fun but i don't like the song. probably if i listen to it over and over it will grow on me. the contact lenses they're wearing look so creepy though. i'm generally not a fan of all of these kpop groups wearing those colored contact lenses because it makes them look dead in the eyes. just wear regular ones if you have to.

congrats to them for trending #2 on US youtube though!

The positives: Overall as a song it’s not bad at all. I think it’s fun and obviously catchy. The dancing is probably my favorite part of the whole thing. They’ve been slowly adding more complex dance moves and I don’t care I love that little chicken flap. Also MOMO got great lines and sounded great so I’m pleased.the clothes are also super cute too. Jihyo’s tartan dress with the vans are right up my alley.

The negatives: ok what man wrote these lyrics and pushed it upon these girls because...these lyrics just ain’t it. There’s cute oh I really like you I’m hoping you don’t say no and then there’s not taking no for an answer. The MV had potential but it didn’t feel cohesive?

I still need to listen to the whole album but I usually enjoy their bsides too so I’m hoping I’ll like this. I really want to see the live stages though.

Meh, not a favorite.

Didn't expect to like the song the minute I heard the intro, and I don't. It's better than I thought I'd be but it still meh.
I loved Sunset way better and I wish it was the title instead.

I didn't enjoy the video at all. I closed the window after the first view (a record for me). If JYPE is going to make them have a comeback every 3 months at least stuck up on good songs, maybe? They seem to get more bold with their money grabbing, I'm-wrapping-up-shit-to-sell-to-you ways. But at least I like two of the b-sides, which is nice.
