what a fun bright video!! very reminiscent of Dumb Dumb and Rookie, and also the spot-the-difference bit reminded me of OC's My Copycat!

as for the song, it's also bright and fun and quirky! I like it a lot more than RBB - enough to download? I'm not sure yet, but I'm definitely going to listen a few more times!

time to go look up the lyrics because I have a vague idea of some of what's being said but I wanna know better!

OC's impact! did pledis ever announce that as and oc are officially over with?
miyozari 6th-Jan-2019 02:17 am (UTC)
No, but Nana confirmed unofficially that After School and Orange Caramel are over. Lizzy has changed her stage name and left Pledis. Gaeun will probably re-debut in a new group soon. Raina has been releasing solo singles.

i missed what nana said. dang pledis sucks ass. at least the big companies give more of a heads up of a disbandment of a girl group

Kinda drags at points but overall I really like it. Still advocating for them to have a nice break though. They've been nonstop for more than a year it seems.

I want to like this but it feels too repetitive? Irene and Yeri sound great, which I will take but I hope we see something interesting.

I like this a lot. Always here for Irene actually getting singing lines <3
cosmicdaze 5th-Jan-2019 06:22 pm (UTC)
there’s a distinct lack of yeri in this mv
song is cute and they all look great

i can't believe i actually like this a lot on first listen
the pre chorus is really really good

well this is a thousand times better than rbb tbh
vintage_boom 5th-Jan-2019 07:02 pm (UTC)
I was gonna add in the post how it's a red version of RBB in terms of experimental structure but hit submit too soon. Joys vocals in this are no joke.
ggumd 5th-Jan-2019 09:06 pm (UTC)
Mte on joy’s vocals! I feel like she gets slept on alot in terms of recognition but I feel like she’s getting more noticed recently
synatri 5th-Jan-2019 07:23 pm (UTC)
it sounds like three songs smushed into one and i'm not sure what to make of it? weird bc generally i love their more experimental songs but this just sounds odd and disjointed to me, there's no... wham moment? it's very repetitive.

also is it just me or does wendy look different in japanese releases compared to korean releases?
goshipgurl 5th-Jan-2019 08:11 pm (UTC)
well, it's a typical RV song & mv...
avrgaesthetics 5th-Jan-2019 09:08 pm (UTC)
what a bop?
minho_lover 5th-Jan-2019 09:36 pm (UTC)
i really like this!! girlies look great!!
ashdevilrun23 5th-Jan-2019 10:21 pm (UTC)
it's okay nothing outstanding. still better than rbb

not in love with this at first lesson but there songs tend to be growers for me. loving the lipstick though.
lizanka23 6th-Jan-2019 12:39 am (UTC)
i like the parts that aren't the chorus. the synthesizer sounds too harsh. it seems like a trend in kpop songs made for the japanese market
aeries_amethyst 6th-Jan-2019 12:54 am (UTC)
Loving this way more than RBB for sure, this is catchy. Some parts of it are kinda meh to me but I like the song overall.
kcaomei 6th-Jan-2019 01:33 am (UTC)
i'm loving the dumb dumb vibes. i'm living for irene and yeri singing in a lower register and joy's vocals, plus it's so cute and catchy! it really isn't my fave but i can't stop listening lol
lynethia 6th-Jan-2019 02:52 am (UTC)
At the moment, I'm not liking the chorus too much. Might have something to do with the abrasive horn synths and melody isn't punchy enough to match. The rest of the song, especially the pre-chorus and repeated intro are great.

The music video is typical cute, quirky Red Velvet I enjoy so I'm good on that end, too.

Even though the mixing in this song is a little too noisy for my tastes (the instrumentals in the hook is like a cake batter with too many ingredients, and the bassline in the verses are a little overkill), it does get better as it progresses, and is overall a catchy song. Definitely better than RBB.
myungung 6th-Jan-2019 03:36 am (UTC)
i'm on the fence on this release. love the MV and its colours, but not so much of the song.
dance wise, it's interesting with their formations, and you don't really see it with their korean releases, but why have an odd-numbered group and still have a member standing at the back blocked?
benihime99 6th-Jan-2019 10:52 am (UTC)
It has all the RV usual elements, the MV is fun and bright but that song is just plain messy
Also, it's the 3rd release where Wendy feels out of place to me, there's a certain cohesion with the other 4 but lately it feels like 4 +1, idk, feels weird
yxerin 6th-Jan-2019 04:09 pm (UTC)
if smth has brass and horns in it i’m in lol. it’s a classic rv track, kinda sounds like a mix of their older red titles. maybe not a fav but it’s an improvement over #cookiejar for sure. it gets catchier w each relisten as well
kori_ya 7th-Jan-2019 06:26 pm (UTC)
Not for me, the song sounds weird.

So i was reviewing my notes and realized i meant to comment on the MV but never did. Uhh... Better late than never I guess.

- A classic red sound rather than velvet. Blends in with the rest of their discography, nothing about it stands out. The girls' vocals sound good.

- I'm not sure what's with their j-releases sounding... Not very jpop. I had the same feeling when they released #cookiejar too. Like they had Power Up? Which would have prolly done better on the j rather than k-market? SO WHY?!

- i can never complain about RV's aesthetics. They always do such a good job.
