this sounds red velvet-y.cute.though i do wonder how the mv's going to go with the song the way it sounds.

I like the styling, very kitschy. Not sure about the theme of birthday tho, lol. Maybe they are hoping people will play this at their birthday parties.

last scene especially reminded me of jennie in dududu mv but in general it looks very low budget, like a behind the scenes video of promo photoshoot.
not sure if i will be able to sit through a whole song of somi's voice because she still sounds as childish as ever BUT i see no dreads, i hear no rap, so it's already a lot better than what i expected from her solo debut! i'm sure she will do well.

I've been watching YouTube videos to see what all the controversy over her voice is about and...yeah, I get it now. It's nasal, it's off-key, and for me it's almost as annoying as Momo's voice. The song sounds like it fits her voice though, so it may just turn out okay.

Where is the budget?

Even when Zion.t had his release from the Black Label he had a whole song factory set and he was flying around. You think they'll throw a bit more money/attention at the center from I.O.I on her first outing.

Other than that, I agree with the first comment about it sounding Red Velvet-y.

omg why does she remind me of doyeon in some of the quick flashes of clips. i legit was like... did she get doyeon to co-star in her mv???

i'm sure she's going to do well. she's a great performer and very charismatic even if her voice isn't everyone's cup of tea with that strange kidz-bop-esque quality. i'm hoping she stayed in touch with that vocal teacher from sm who worked with her in unnies slam dunk. he boosted her confidence way up and really understood her insecurities with her tone.

oh and ot but speaking of doyeon/ioi, doyeon, mina, and kyulkyung had a little reunion i'm crying

I still think she played herself. Curious to see what the final result is but I’m not sold.

i don't think jype was ever going to work out for her, but black label probs won't work out for her either oop

Really?? I thought most people felt that she was the standard jype idol aka fun, cute personality, but not that much emphasis on talent.

i don't really mean she didn't "fit" at jype, just that i didn't see her debuting after she didn't make twice.

Mmmmm we’ll see...

On a side note between Fancy and this I’m really tired of kpop groups including “birthday” in their songs, like it just adds an element that makes it seem extremely childish no matter what the song. But maybe that’s just me
iglooaustralia 12th-Jun-2019 04:47 pm (UTC)
i agree. this song seems super childish.
