Somi's debut stages on Music Core 🎂

Source: YouTube: MBCkpop

she seems nervous, i wonder if she'd be more comfortable with a group or if it's cuz of the yg controversies.

Idk what she's like usually when she performs but yeah she seemed nervous ... Must be because it was her solo debut?

that's what I assumed too, it's normal to be nervous for a debut. I still think she did alright!

I remember when she was on Unnies talking about her voice and how it tended to be louder than the other members and her trying to balance it, but now I can barely hear her. She must be nervous or something because I feel like this could have been better.

Also, minor nitpick but she didn't stand out enough from her backup dancers for her second song. Her makeup and outfit was too similar (but it's only like 60 seconds so no big deal really).

I just wanted to take those silver gloves off her.

She seemed nervous, but to be expected. After all the talk of working on the choreo.. nothing really stood out tbh.

I do like the song though, and I think she will be better at her next perf and sell it better.

Someone on Reddit called her edgy Jojo Siwa and I died. Definitely the vibes I get from Birthday (though I love the "oops you're not invited" part.)

Outta My Head is the superior song. Her stages weren't bad, but the styling was meh. I liked the outfits her backup dancers wore for the Bday stage more than anything she actually wore.

ah so thats why I felt too old for her songs. I really want to like her and support her though.

There was this one knetz who commented that maybe her parents thought it was the best idea to debut her solo based on Chungha's success, when she wasn't even the most popular from IOI and that kinda makes sense.
But Chungha is 1- a full grown adult, 2- always showed leadership and creative potential, 3 - Had a supportive agency that gave her a full circle of well planed promotions. Yet, didn't see any loss on her joining IOI reunion again. In conclusion, Somi's situation is just really unfortunate, besides Yeji and Yuna that have huge charisma I see her easily fufllfilling a great spot on Itzy and achieving many things while doing some of her stuff. Good chart numbers is nothing for a shittty agency like YG, that's why AKMU and Lee Hi are still under the radar and I'm afraid it'll be the same for her. She still is SO YOUNG, so I really hope she'll break free in no time and redo her stuff.

I don't want to be that asshole but Chungha is also 1. an exceptional dancer and 2. a great singer. Imo, Somi is someone who would kill being the face/center of a group because she has a lot of charisma and a personality that does well in variety shows/boisterous environments, but skills-wise is kind of eh as a soloist as of right now

I didn't think this was that good. She seemed really nervous and her dancing was sloppy (she also forgot to lipsync at times). I have sympathy for the fact that the choreo was apparently finished last minute and YG is in meltdown right now, but at the same time for a debut this shouldn't feel so...half assed? She doesn't look ready, which is ridiculous considering she already debuted years ago.

Apparently she learned the choreo like in last 24 hours...idk how true that is.

The whole debut is not good. The song isn't good and she's stiff. Which isn't like her because she's always owned every stage she's performed in. This whole thing is rushed and YG misogyny has probably killed her self esteem. Good luck sis.

She said they modified the point choreography (that's why it's different from the music video) but it seems like most of the dance is the same. So, she's had more than a day to learn the dance; they just changed a bit of it before her actual performances.

Apparently that isn't that strange though. I remember Twice saying they learned choreo two days before actually shooting their music video, and Blackpink said their ending pose for "As if it Was Your Last" got changed by YG after they shot the music video.

I really like the 2nd song

You can hear she has the same coach as Lisa and Jennie, her enunciation/phrasing is very close to theirs

He seems a bit unsure and nervous which is understandable
She has no charisma but she's trying

Outta my head is a decent song

that drop ruins it for me. Honestly, I love the song minus the drop. It's young and fun but ugh...I can't with that pathetic drop.

I might get shit for this but the one she should've replaced in Itzy is Chaeryeong, not Yuna 🤐

I like the song for the most part but this was a very boring performance. I feel bad for her bc of all the mess at YG
miuratenshi 15th-Jun-2019 07:17 pm (UTC)
I think it could possibly be nerves holding her back because she usually has so much more stage presence than this. Hopefully she'll get used to being back on stage and come back stronger next week.

Idk if she was nervous but something was distracting her. She was not fully "there" - it's like her mind was somewhere else. Her dancing was sloppy and she sometimes forgot to lipsync.
toast_is_burnin 15th-Jun-2019 08:20 pm (UTC)
She was way too nervous in this. Like with ioi she would kill the choero and always be lip synching every part but she missed stuff in this song. The gloves needed to go because they made her feel more awkward and the outfit too. I think she could do well solo but the reality is that she feeds off the energy of the people she is around and when shes on her own she just ends up as lost
