Tbh I feel like SVT has stagnated in the last year or so...idk if it's because W1 interrupted their rise or what. But their last few title tracks have been underwhelming for me as well. I blame Don't Wanna Cry as the start of it...ifans loved it but the sound and concept was so derivitive of the trends at the time, and it lacked the fun spark I'd associated with them up until that point. I thought Clap was a return to form, but I got bored of it quickly; sth about the arrangment/structure was lacking. And their last mini straight pissed me off bc it was actually really good overall but had the worst, most boring song for the title track. 😑

Idk, I'll def always check for them including this cb, but I need the fun of Mansae/Pretty U/Very Nice back...nowadays it feels like less and less sets them apart from other boy groups.

I think they've just wanted to explore more concepts but I too hope they return to a brighter more playful image like debut

did you listen to call call call or just do it? callx3 was their best release last year and just do it is your standard fun and funky seventeen. if anything last year felt like a throwback to their earlier sound to me after they strayed away from it in 2017. i also don't think we'll ever get anything like pretty u again, they're all 20(+) now.

Are those Japanese releases? I don't normally listen to those

Yeah i mean I don't expect schoolboy concepts or anything like that again, but I think you can keep things bright and fun while maturing it a bit? Though not many boy groups seem to do that. I'm thinking kinda like Exid-Lady, Kara-Step, Stellar-Sting or even Lion Heart (tho some ppl here thought that was too cutsey for SNSD then).
kyulkyung 14th-Jan-2019 08:58 pm (UTC)
callx3 is their japanese debut song (definitely worth a listen even if you don't normally check for those) and just do it is a subunit song. the latter was only promoted for a week, so it was easy to miss. there's also a-teen, their ost for a webdrama of the same name.

the thing is, they do still release fun and bright music? the songs mentioned above fit that criteria and so does oh my even if you didn't like it. of course that doesn't mean you have to like their songs, but saying they ditched their original sound/concept isn't really true.
lil_poisonfrog 14th-Jan-2019 09:04 pm (UTC)
Yeah the thing is I'm not just looking for that sound in b-sides and osts that are barely promoted, I'm more talking about title tracks and their visual concepts which are more indicative of the overall direction of the group. It's not an attack on ppl who like their more recent titles.
kyulkyung 14th-Jan-2019 09:10 pm (UTC)
but callx3 and just do it /are/ title tracks? and a-teen was a hugely successful webdrama which svt composed the main ost for. i wouldn't have mentioned them if they weren't promoted songs lmao.
lil_poisonfrog 14th-Jan-2019 09:23 pm (UTC)
It's not the same as a fully promoted Korean cb tho...which is why I'm into Kpop personally lol. One of the reasons I don't generally listen to Japanese Kpop releases besides the bad pronunciation is that we don't get to see music show performances and all the other promotional activities. Also the MVs generally aren't as good. I'll give Callx3 a listen but even if I like it, the song alone is not the experience I come to Kpop for. Same for OST songs. It has nothing to do with how succesful the drama is btw.

Also Just Do It isn't even on Spotify when I searched so clearly they don't want me to pay it any attention as a western fan. 🤷♀️

You seem to think I'm like, attacking them or something, but I assure you I'm only expressing my personal tastes as a consumer. It's not deeper than that.

Edit: nvm I found Just Do It, didn't realize it was under a separate page

no, i don't think you are. you don't have to like their songs but the assumption that they no longer make fun or bright music isn't really true? i just got a little annoyed at your condescending tone in the previous comment because, as i said, the songs i mentioned were in fact title tracks. if you had bothered to click on the links i provided, you would've seen that they all have music videos as well (in fact callx3 is probably one of svt's best). if you don't like these songs either, that's completely valid and i'll leave you alone, but since you apparently haven't even listened to half of their releases last year, making a judgement on their new musical direction seems a little presumptuous.
lil_poisonfrog 15th-Jan-2019 07:13 pm (UTC)
I think you're still misunderstanding my original comment. I never said anywhere they 100% abandoned that sound. I said they don't do it anymore for their title tracks which is a fact...idk why you'd assume I meant to include their Japanese stuff since it's common knowledge many ifans don't listen to K-pop groups' Japanese material. OSTs are not and have never been title tracks. Subunit stuff is great, but this is still a post about SVT the whole group, not a subunit. My OC was obviously about their Korean title tracks as a whole group, which everyone else who replied seemed to get, but you're being purposely obtuse about.

No where was I condescending about anything, you're just a typical kpop fan that can't handle anything less than total positivity about your faves at all times, or else you go on the defensive as if your oppas are paying you for the free PR.

I'd be thankful if you two could step away from this... i think you both made your points clear and anything more will only cause hurt and anger :-(

Yes, ia, Wanna One's impact affected the whole boygroup section so much. I'm excited to see how the scenery will look in 2019 and if Seventeen can maybe grab that 3rd spot this year.
I would love to see them put out a more musical-ish performance again someday! Oh My had cute little sections, but i want a whole song with playful choreo haha.
lil_poisonfrog 15th-Jan-2019 12:05 am (UTC)
Totally agree! But I feel like unless they have a smash hit they'll be overshadowed again by TXT and the next male Produce group which is just around the corner...sigh 😒

idk like I miss very nice/etc sounds as well but i feel like if they always went for that kind of sound, it'd just become stale. all of their songs would just end up sounding the same. i feel like people wouldn't be happy no matter what they do.
lil_poisonfrog 15th-Jan-2019 07:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah I mean nothing any artist does is ever gonna make everyone happy, that's just life lmao. I think it's funny kpop fans always say this about their faves as if they're victims or something...it's more like people are allowed to have their opinions about art and express them, it's not personal.

Seeing them all together, I honestly can't tell what they're going for, but I do know I'm interested and I'm a lot a bit in love with Hoshi's blue velvet pants

lmao i feel scammed, I remember teasers are dropping for once and waited for 12am KST for...one(1) group pic. The snippet on the website sounds like a chill summer track but teasers are misleading so who knows hmm
juhli 14th-Jan-2019 11:18 pm (UTC)
Me too, I was waiting for more to come...surely that can't have been all? And then it was haha.
Someone said it sounded like a slowed-down "Oh My" ??? I still think we are getting something emotional but not a ballad. Or maybe something completely different, you never know with Seventeen lol

Ok they made some points with the styling. the vintage brooches, heels, tulle.. all really pretty and makes a great contrast to the modern/"futuristic" look in the Before Dawn teasers where they had sequins and transparent accessories
