I like it! But it ends kinda abruptly.

It feels like what they would be releasing now had thwy never strayed from their original Pepe sound (oh how let down we were when that was followed by Eighteen and Like). So i like it! It lacks a bit of oomph that Pepe had though. Also I'm mad that they've suddenly changed the groups' concept and sound AGAIN when they were finally getting recognition.

Same :/ it’s really annoying tbh

I feel like this does a good job of maintaining the edginess they've picked up since Black Dress and meshing it with their earlier pop style and it lets them show off their vocals.I dig it but it needs a more fleshed out ending

I like it. Its fun! I'm looking forward to the english translation of the songs' lyrics

I do think this needs a final flourish at the end but it's very fun & cute without sounding radically different than their new style.

it's already stuck in my head and I loooove the vocal parts in this song. I do agree that i think to really bring it home, they should've had a dynamic shift in the music toward the end or added in some vocal runs or high notes or whateva, but as it stands, I definitely enjoy it a lot! fan of the mv too
dior_chic 6th-Sep-2019 11:02 am (UTC)
First impression - I was pretty bored. Lol. The MV took elements of stuff I like from other groups (red velvet, ladies code) but it didn’t really do anything interesting with it, so the MV was definitely a miss for me - I much prefer their last two.

The chorus is nice but the verses had me feeling little. Oh well, as I said for the teaser post at least they gave me No and Me, 2/3 is still good odds lol

I’m sure it’ll grow on me, but right now I’m definitely in the mixed category (love the poll btw!) though it might take awhile since I have no desire to press replay...

i had the exact same thought re: red velvet and ladies code, lol. russian roulette meets hate you. (the latter of which remains one of the most underrated songs in kpop history imo)

I loved Pepe and this is no Pepe. But it's not bad either, it's just there, it doesn't really go anywhere.

i want to love this, but this feels so thrown together :/ the music didn't really have any dynamic aspects to make it stand out. the instrumental was kind of cutesy with the guitar to add something to it, but the video concept had more of an edge, especially at the end. but the music didn't change so that outfit & lighting change just felt random? their vocals are on point, as always, so it makes up for the lack of "oomph" the inst brought, but it wasn't enough. especially after both "no" and "me," which are some of the strongest singles of their careers. echoing sentiments from previous commenters, cube please let them establish their sound and maintain some form of consistency, damn.

it's fine. i needed more texture or bass or vocal layering or....something. there's a missing ingredient.

Mte. The song is just okay now but would’ve been great if they added some vocal layering, high notes and some more texture. This song felt underproduced

I really like it! It’s cute but not sickeningly so – I agree with torontok in that it has the edginess from BD/No/Me. This is also upbeat enough for summer, yet has a lil “dark” twist to it appropriate for the beginning of Halloween season. Really wish they had done more with the “darker” elements at the end aside from using em for scenery, but it’s a minor thing I can live with. They all look great, minus Eunbean & her Party City pink wig (did she borrow it from Jisoo? lol).
I’m probably in the minority, but I actually like that it doesn’t have ott vocal runs/high notes at the end. Not every song needs to have those runs/notes at the end – this one did well without it. I’d still tweak the ending a bit to give it a more solid & definitive ending, tho. Overall, I’m very much enjoying this, it’s already stuck in my head, & am looking forward to the live stages. Shoutout to my girl Seunghee for looking beautiful & sounding great as always.

Thank you for coming to my Ted talk lol

I like the song, but they really made this too similar to the Russian Roulette video. Like you could do a side by side of the pranks...
gathyou 6th-Sep-2019 12:20 pm (UTC)
I really like this song! Good vocals, decent line distribution, great visuals even though some of pranks weren't so inspired and the dark scenes didn't really do anything (apart from stylistically tiding it with earlier concepts).
I'm just not sure about them releasing it now? It could have worked as a transition from the retro cute stuff into the hard hitting sound they adopted now. I don't want them to loose stream after finally finding a niche
But maybe it's more public-friendly so it will work?

they debuted #6 on bugs and entered sobrida... but not melon. then again melon is like a war zone rn. i just hope cube doesn’t give up on them.

We love a top 10 debut on any chart because beggars can’t be choosers!

I'm feeling very mixed about this, the MV is pretty and colorful and the styling is ok but I've already totally forgotten what the song sounded like. I like No and Me better.
mewgical 6th-Sep-2019 06:20 pm (UTC)
IA. Me and the whole No.1 mini felt like a good direction for them to go. But this sound is a no for me. Hopefully Cube gets indecisive again and gives us another No or a Black Dress or Hobgoblin. I think that's where the group flourishes.
