Gugudan is back with their comeback song “A Girl Like Me”. Gugudan is stylized in a couple different ways including gugudan and gu9udan. They debuted last year with their song “Wonderland” that seemed themed after The Little Mermaid. I don't know anything about this release, but the album name is Narcissus or something like that so it makes me wonder if they will surround it with that story.
If you don't know the Greek mythology behind the story of Narcissus, it is about a guy named Narcissus that loved himself more than anything. Nemesis saw Narcissus admiring his own reflection in a pool. Narcissus fell in love with his own image. Eventually Narcissus lost the will to live, but only remained at the poolside until he died. The music video seems to follow this theme fairly well using media and entertainment as a way to symbolize the self admiring attitude. The girls are so focused on themselves through magazines, TV, and various other means. A figure appears quite often in the video which is an armless statue which I assume is Narcissus but with a TV in place of his head. As if to say we become so entranced by media and entertainment.
The song was quite interesting. It reminded me a lot of “Catch Me” by WJSN just because of how heavy and hard-hitting the song itself actually was. There were bass hits throughout the song that I wish I could have heard better because they sounded phenomenal. I find it interesting how a group can go from being so cute and adorable in their first release and then comeback as a hard and sexy group. It's so amazing to me. This song and concept were definitely sexy because of the style and their outfits and I guess the underlying idea of being self loving.
