What a generric MV... I felt like I was watching a patchwork of 5 different group
And that song... no no
The girls are adorable but that's a no

Tbh I'm surprised at this reaction bc there was only two outfit changes, ig 3 if you count the white robes lol

To me it was a similar format to SNSD's Party and Red Flavor where there's a daytime/outdoor scene and nightime/party scene
benihime99 14th-Aug-2019 06:33 am (UTC)
It's not so much the outfits as it is the locations and scenes themselves
All of these scenes are patchwork from previous summer mv

I was not expecting a fun MV (a la Boogie Up). and the ending seems to be introducing a follow up?! and yes to the girls having fun!

song wise, the build-up to the chorus and chorus are my fave parts. the bridge can stay too, it's just the verses that don't really suit my taste. can't wait for Rina and Yoojung to do the chorus dances! also, no rap makes this song flow, and as much as Yoojung is talented as a rapper, it would have been out of place here. can't wait for Yoojung and Suyeon to shine on that reality programme

This isn't their usual fare but honestly it makes a cute summer bop and I'm not mad at it, the MV is cute, all the girls seemed to get an even amount of screentime even if Lua seems to have NO LINES (no seriously the lines we thought were hers were actually Lucy's so?????)
I love the idea that they're trying to escape from these constant 'missions' so they go on a holiday, cute way of introducing a summer concept into their wheelhouse. I look forward to their next 'mission'!
I'm happy about the amount of Rina in this song, she was shafted a bit for Picky Picky and I like she seems to taken over the role of 'default bridge singer' from Sei now that Sei is getting more verse/chorus lines?
WKMK all have such fun, silly personalities and videos like this really allow that to shine through

Also worth pointing out that Picky Picky has now overtaken Crush for views so here's hoping they're back on a climb digitally even if their physicals are declining!
lizanka23 13th-Aug-2019 07:04 pm (UTC)
I feel like their company had been taking long breaks in between comebacks before picky picky so that’s why their physicals declined. Or could there be another reason why? A lot of people definitely loved Picky Picky, so hopefully their fandom will grow
adenar 13th-Aug-2019 07:20 pm (UTC)
I think their first two tracks were just a little too divisive to sustain some of their more casual fans and so they've slowly dropped off. There was only five months between their debut and their first comeback, seven months to their second comeback, six months to Picky Picky. There were probably a couple of comebacks that could have happened sooner but also none of those are particularly long in the world of kpop.
They definitely seem to be turning around people's impressions of them in the last few comebacks, I hope it translates to actual monetary success!

I honestly wish title track 2 had been iron boy instead of lalala - they not only had choreography for that but it's a better general song that uses everyone in the group to their fullest potential. I don't acknowledge the song before picky picky tho
adenar 13th-Aug-2019 10:13 pm (UTC)
I liked La La La but yeah I don't think it should have been lead single. They could have done a really fun retro schoolgirl concept video for Iron Boy. It's not my favourite but I can see it being more public friendly. In my ideal world they'd have promoted it alongside Metronome.

also crush was a bop and they all looked incredible but that's fine u r welcome to ur wrong opinions!!!!
pikapika217 13th-Aug-2019 10:16 pm (UTC)
honestly Iron boy married a more public friendly sound with the wackiness of their debut. Lalala was too much of a pull back

I'll relisten to crush tho, maybe it'll stick

the song is GREAT tbh, i kno they'll kill it live.

the MV is entirely whatever, but they look cute and comfortable so i'm here for it.

Love this, song genuinely made my day.
lizanka23 13th-Aug-2019 07:01 pm (UTC)
Love the song and MV. It might not be super original but they genuinely look like they’re having fun and I love the choreo. Besides boogie up this is the only gg song that has given me a summer vibe. Can’t wait to see it live since they’re so charming on stage. Also it’s good to see them genuinely silly, goofy and active rather than just posing and looking pretty in front of a camera

Cute song! I'd leave it playing if it came up in rotation.
Doyeon is gorgeous, ill never get tired of saying it.

I absolutely love this song!!
Weki Meki are feeding us some fun bops lately.

This is such a fun song and that choreo looks great! I can't wait to see all of it when they go on some shows ^__^
lil_poisonfrog 14th-Aug-2019 12:16 am (UTC)
This might be my favorite title released all summer besides Snapping! The chorus is so catchy. A great follow-up for those who got interested in them bc of Picky Picky (like myself)

The MV is nothing too special but it's on brand concept-wise and the girls look cute which is good enough when you're on a limited budget

It's too bad they had such a divisive debut. Upon re-listen I think IDLYGF is a fun, quirky song but it was def an unconventional choice for a title. Crush really should've been their debut track

It’s a cute follow up! Idk if it’s all that memorable, I’ll see it has good replay factor 👍

I’m going to be a little mean here but Doyeon’s beauty is on a whole different level than the other girls...it really stands out, and maybe not in a positive way?
lil_poisonfrog 14th-Aug-2019 02:38 am (UTC)
Imo it's bc Doyeon really shouldn't have been an idol after IOI. Her look is very "high fashion" to me and not at all what's typically considered beautiful for an idol. Idk if it was possible but I wish she could've signed with an international modeling agency or sth bc she should be on runways all over the world

this is really cute

The song is cute but doesn't really feel like Weki Meki to me (maybe because there' no rap part), but summer is coming to an end. Kids are back at school; the timing doesn't seem that good. But, if what people are speculating is true, the song serves its purpose of just reminding everyone that Weki Meki exists before the I.O.I reunion.
suggestivepeach 14th-Aug-2019 04:24 am (UTC)

Cute! Not as sticky as Picky Picky but still a fun song. Doyeon really is beautiful.

Finally the MV !!! I really don't understand their strategy here. They made us wait for A WHOLE WEEK but the MV isn't anything special? I get it because it's a quick repackage between two full-blown comebacks, they're cutting costs, and it's fun that they're basically avoiding their "mission" in the MV to be on vacation instead. But why made us wait a week for it? And Lua barely had any screentime? she already doesn't get lines (I thought the had those spoken adlibs during the chorus but it's Lucy???), why are Fantagio doing her dirty like that?

I really really like the song, it's the perfect kind of light and fun summer track. Visually it's really pretty as well, they're all super cute and I'm glad they managed to squeeze a comeback between Picky Picky and Doyeon/Yoojung going back to IOI!

ok after the 3rd listen... it's solid ladies

not as kidz boppy and guilty pleasure-feeling as picky picky but not as infectiously catchy either, i'll take it tho
the choreo however!! is a riot i love it
