The timing is super weird. My wild guess is they will perform an English ver. at GMA + NA tour and the Korean ver. will only be revealed next month.

Ok I was wrong, just watched GMA and it's in Korean. Reminds me of SHINee or maybe EXO? Someone on Twitter mentioned Married to the Music while I thought of Lucky One. It doesn't sound very 127-ish to me but that means people who say their title tracks are just noise will have less to complain about. This scheduling is still totally weird.

Tomorrow??? And the álbum does not come out until the 24th of May, so more than a moth from now. Why? What is this schedule?

I have no clue, honestly ... But I guess I trust the Korean media to be right about this. There's speculation that they're gonna perform the English version tomorrow and that the Korean one will be released later.

EDIT: A friend just told me that they were apparently seen rehearsing Cherry Bomb ... Wtf.

Yeah, that's also what I read. So unless they are releasing a MV for the english version or a digital release for it, I still don't get why perform it now. It's just such an odd desicion as of now.

Edit because I just saw yours: wtf. Then what even is that GMA tweet? Dbkdjsbdkdkxne

Okay, they did a Cherry Bomb and Superhuman mashup!! I could only half-watch so I don't really know what to think about it haha but from what I saw it looked good!

They did perform superhuman! Chery bomb first. I still dont undersfand the decision but okay.

i am confused why they are performing it when it gets released next week?
dantethetaco 18th-Apr-2019 12:41 pm (UTC)
Not even next week, next month. Like... why?

Unless I'm missing something.

They need something new to promote while doing press in the states

I don’t like that they’re doing the American roll out for the album with the single super early but they can’t do another round of regular performances

sounds very shinee

Here’s video : https://youtu.be/OmfG8csc6Mg

They did 1:45 of it and left out the rap parts so I’m not entirely sure how much of that there will be. It’s definitely very shinee as people have said. As an sm bg release I like that it’s highlighting the vocalists and has a great groove but for a 127 title song?? Not sure. Have to hear the whole thing but it feels like they might be falling into the same trap bts did.
carmine_pink 18th-Apr-2019 02:44 pm (UTC)
How do you think this compares to BTS?

It also struck me that the cut they used didn't have any rap at all. I wonder if they'll only perform this short version in the concerts.
vintage_boom 18th-Apr-2019 04:58 pm (UTC)
It’s comparable in the sense that the song is more palatable for western top 40 radio based on what their us labels think will work instead of what fits with what the group is known for/does best.

Like it feels kinda bland and safe from the snippet and not very nct. Even when they put out a title song I don’t like that much its still undoubtedly an nct song. This feels like a watered down shinee track and as much as I love vocal line they don’t have the vocal diversity/personality to carry a shinee song.

The songs alright but wtf why did they perform it like a month early, just release the mv
countthesaints 18th-Apr-2019 09:10 pm (UTC)
SM really can't plan to save their lives.

Essentially, they have a concert on the 23rd, they'll fly back to Korea to promote for a week and then head back out to do their last California stop? Why not wait till after 2nd June to do all of this? So confusing.
