Let's just get to the point, I don't know April, but I do know that they just released a new music video called “Tinkerbell”. I do also know that April is what I call Aegyo Kpop, which for me just means groups that try to have an appearance of being cutesy. If you follow me on Twitter (all of you should, www.twitter.com/openthekpop), you will notice me using that hashtag a bunch when referring to Lovelyz, Oh My Girl, April, Gfriend, and many more. I'm a huge fan of Aegyo Kpop, so I'm not upset by this and it is in no way a term to take offense to, but more a term of endearment. Lovelyz is my favorite group out of this genre though because many of the other girl groups haven't really impressed me a whole bunch lately, but I guess we'll see because I have listened only to April's first mini album.
So the music video was bright and colorful, but the thing I noticed about it was the usage of different children's literature. For instance, the girl at the beginning was reading a book, then appeared in the story. Much like several children's literature novels, the hero has some sort of passage into the fantasy world. Another key thing I noticed, and I'm not sure if they meant to do this considering the theme is Tinkerbell and Peter Pan, but they squeezed in some of Alice in Wonderland, with eating the cake. The overall theme of the video was a bit ambiguous, but I guess it's just about being in a fairyland, wonderland. I don't know any of their names so please don't hurt me, all you April fans.
The song was definitely more catchy than their previous songs. The last title track they had was catchy but just because I heard it a lot on top 50 and top 100 lists. This song caught my attention but I kind of got distracted by the music video and may have zoned out the song. Sorry.
So that's my review of April's “Tinkerbell”. I hope you enjoyed it and don't forget to like, comment, and share this post. Also follow me on social media.
