iKon is a boy band that I know literally nothing about. I know that they released a couple songs earlier in the year. “Airplane”, “Rhythm Ta”, and “Apology”. Well I guess they are back with their songs “Dumb and Dumber” and “What’s Wrong?” I don’t really have anything to say about them except for, “let’s watch”.
So I just watched the “Dumb and Dumber” video and while the chorus was catchy, I didn’t find myself jamming out to it like I typically do with other YG groups. The video seemed to be a nonsensical Hollywood concept. There was no real structure to the video. My favorite part of the song was that chill part right before the pre-chorus. The song reminded me of “Bang Bang Bang” by Big Bang, but not nearly as good. And it felt like YG was kind of stealing from SM and Red Velvet. Anyway, on to the next video.
Now I’ve watched the video for “What’s Wrong?” and I got to say, I like that song a lot more than “Dumb and Dumber”. Like I might just put that song on my playlist. It has the techno/EDM style sound that has been more and more popular. The video concept I still don’t understand. Is it supposed to be dodgeball? Is it supposed to represent “sasaeng” fans? I don’t know. If someone could please let me know in the comments section what the concepts for these two music videos was.
Anyway, that’s my review for these two music videos by iKon. The videos and songs were just meh I guess. I liked the second song a lot more than the first one, but they seem like they’re 12 years old, so I can’t take them seriously. Like Big Bang could have done the exact same concept and I would have been perfectly fine with it, but that’s because they are established. I think iKon should focus on not being a weird crazy group before establishing themselves as a group. I think that people enjoy crazy nonsensical stuff from groups that are better established, but that’s just my opinion. Thanks for checking this out. It feels good to be writing again. It seemed like a while since there has been any real videos come out. Anyway, thanks again.
