wHATS Up guys. It’s been long (almost 2 years?) since I’ve written here. Yeah, it’s the original B, Bagel. Watched this video courtesy of a friend and thought it’d be a waste if I didn’t share my opinion on it.
And I have no idea how to format these posts anymore, so I’m just going to write.
The first time I listened/watched this, I was really disappointed. Since I don’t listen to K-pop anymore, I may be wrong here, but I believe this is the first comeback since Jessica left? (Which, by the way, was disappointing to learn, but also understandable). Right off the bat, I noticed way more parts for other members that would previously have not had much to sing. It also seems GG is no longer Taeyeon and the background singers, and as an ex-Taeyeon stan I’m not sure how I feel about that. I suppose it’s good for fans of the other members, and kind of sucky for Taeyeon.
A large part of the disappointment definitely came from the music video. And having watched it about ten times over by now, I can officially say I’m still disappointed by the music video! Nothing special about it whatsoever, very simple, nothing fancy. What I have changed my mind about is the song. It was boring the first time I heard it, but now, ten listens later, I can admit it’s really catchy and even if it’s not SNSD’s best, it’s not terrible. Definitely seems like something you can sing along to and have fun with.
Well that’s it for now.
