I kinda cringed watching this. Idk something when guys try too hard to look sexy/smolder in the camera makes me uncomofrtable lol. With that said, good choice giving Jaehyun the centre for much of Cherry Bomb. He could get it anytime, any day, any location.

And I like Superhuman! It doesn't really sound like lead single material (if it is supposed to be that?) but at least it has a melody, more even line distribution and isn't just noise... so there's that.

They're talented but their performance quality lacks so much in comparison to BTS. Kinda wish Seventeen was making a US push with DWC + Home.

I actually really enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting Superhuman, is that their new Touch?

meh. i'm honestly not feeling this new song. it just sounds like someone took a shinee chorus and stretched it out to make a song....like...this is very much a not as good version of married to the music imo

ugh i feel so bad for them lol GMA is honestly the worst place to premiere the highly choreographed routines that kpop has -- not to mention its so obvious they aren't singing live.

superhuman sounds good but i can't fully get into it bc it only reminds me of the under appreciated EXO bop lucky one

i'm sure the album will be great tho

How do you even make the Cherry Bomb choreo look bad? Like wtf this level of incompetence.

i really like superhuman. i feels kinda like a shinee song. i mean, i am also biased i really just want them to have a consumer friendly sound bc there's only like two single's that i like. i'm always rooting for them, lol.

I love the boys and believe in them but I'm losing patience with SM's handling of them b/c they could be huge!

I didn't even know they were in America, what are they doing there?

It was kinda weird how they started off with a formation that showed Taeyong dancing with his back to the camera..

I don't know if I like superhuman, cause this whole thing felt kinda weird.. xD

they're doing a leg of their tour across the us and canada

wtf is sm doing... did they just want to get one of their acts on the US promo circuit since bts and bp are? they’re performing superhuman a MONTH before the mini even comes out and it looks like the crowd is made up of... adults and not fans lol probably bc they announced this literally a day ago.

I’m all for them venturing into the US market and doing it the right way by touring and growing their fanbase, but these one off talk show performances really make no sense.

The whole concept of NCT and their interchangeable units are whack lol. It's too bad because the talent is apparent, although mismatched for the noise pop sound they usually go for.

I still associate GMA with middle america, soccer moms & retirees so I'm laughing, because nothing says biggest hit to them like sparkly blazers and faux cowboy boots. Too bad they forgot the cowboy hat and facial hair. (I understand GMA has evolved beyond this, but it's my association.)

I want both of those sequin blazers though. They were the real stars.

This is my thought too. With the addition of doctor/dentist waiting rooms. I would never watch it on my own.

The audience just seems....off. Makes me wish we still had TRL or proper music videos on MTV again. THAT would be the best platform for them to perform.

The fanboy at the end stole the show in my opinion. I liked the floor work though.

"Superhuman" sounds great—it definitely reminds me of SHINee's Married to the Music and EXO's "Lucky One" with a hint of TVXQ's "Catch Me". I'm not quite sure why they would premiere it a month in advance when they could have done something from Regulate, but SM rarely makes decent promotional decisions so I'm not surprised.

GMA's camera work remains an absolute trainwreck though.

Can I also mention the fact that doing the dance breakdown first in "Cherry Bomb" was a horrible decision. They should have segued the end of the "Superhuman" bit into the breakdown and then finished with "Cherry Bomb". Everything about this screams super super last minute and they don't deserve that mess.

superhuman sounds so good to me, i love this sm sound tbh so i'm ready to jam when the song actually drops...in another month lmfao

i'm glad i'm not the only one who thought the cherry bomb performance was off. that stage set up is just so weird.

i'm so excited to see them in two weeks 😭
xoxkenzxox 18th-Apr-2019 08:40 pm (UTC)
omg. I can't at that leg move at 1:58. who decided that was cool looking choreography? I get that they are on tour or whatever, but this seems like SM is just trying to cash in on BTS's success/exposure.

It's still so weird to see kpop on american tv.

Idk...sounds very shinee and not in a good way

veep_throat 18th-Apr-2019 08:53 pm (UTC)

Also does general public even care about kpop...it sure dont look like it

existingisfunny 19th-Apr-2019 01:48 am (UTC)
i have a friend that was there and they said the studio asks the audience not to move so it might look like no one's feeling it, but rly it's at the show's request lol

I love Taeyong and his face, but everything NCT does has become to meh to me.
