I’m doing something a little bit different. I have a list of songs I need to review and I check them off, usually in order. If I have similar artists then I’ll review those artists together, but I have been dying to check out Hyoyeon’s solo debut as a DJ. I’ve heard only good things about it and I’m ready to be impressed. I’ll just do a review of the Korean version. I’ll check out the English version on my own, but considering this site is for international music, I think reviewing a song in Korean is more crucial than reviewing the same song in English.
I don’t know what to say about this video. It was impressive. We see a bunch of girls who are hung up about their body image and decide to throw flares into the night sky. I’m not sure why they were tossing flares, but maybe it’s a symbolism for them not caring anymore what people have to say about them. I understand why the video rating was 19+ but it could have been lowered a little because it’s honestly just a couple flashes of girls in underwear. Public TV shows that all the time. It’s called Victoria’s Secret. I will say, I’ve always loved Hyo’s dance style. She has an aggressive street style but here we saw her dancing a little bit of Salsa, it looked like. One thing I’m happy about is Hyo moving from Hip Hop to EDM.
It’s not that I don’t like Hyo’s rapping, but I like her singing voice much better than her rapping voice. Her rapping got a little annoying for me, to be completely honest. I liked the song she produced. It has great potential. I see people in the comments saying this is the best song ever, and while it’s a great song, I sadly disagree. It’s not the best song and I know Hyo could do even better, but it is a good song for first production. I will give her that much. I enjoyed the distorted guitar sounds she used for the build up of the song and the synth effects and sounds were perfect. I think the build up after the verse and into the chorus was a bit choppy but besides that point, I liked the song.
What did you think? Did you love Hyo’s first single as a DJ? What are your thoughts about Hyo promoting as a DJ instead of a rapper? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section. Thank you for supporting me. I noticed the views are low for the videos, so please go support Hyo in her new endeavors. Thank you and I’ll see you in my next review.
In this section of my website, I will review Kpop music videos, albums, songs, and various other things pertaining to Kpop. This will be the main stage of my website. It is where the majority of the action will take place.
