I apologize for being absent lately. I swear I’ve been keeping up with Kpop but on my own time because I don’t have time and because my mind isn’t 100% in Kpop. I don’t feel like it’s fair to give you all half-assed reviews or anything else. This is the reason why I’ve been absent from Kpop for some time. I’m back, but not 100%. I still am not completely in the mindset to be reviewing three or four or five music videos in a day. This is why I’m only doing maybe one or two reviews every couple of days. A lot of things have happened in my life recently, and because of those things, I am still not 100% yet.
With that being said, my first music video review for my comeback is going to be for Pristin’s new subunit called Pristin V which I assume means there are five members. I believe I saw that Pinky and Nayoung are a part of this unit as well as a couple other members who I can’t remember. Their debut song as a subunit is called “Get It” and we’re about to get it!
I’m not sure I was able to keep up with the music video but there seemed to be themes throughout even though the video itself was primarily choreography focused. Each member appeared to have their own scene wherein there were things repeated or duplicated. I don’t remember who was in which room, but that’s something I noticed. There was the room with piles of wooden chairs, I believe Nayoung was in a room with angled mirror to give the effect of six different versions of herself. There were more, but I just can’t recall all of them after only watching the video once.
This video has some interesting features such as the lighting. It wasn’t completely dark. In fact, there were a couple scenes on the bleachers where the screen was almost completely overtaken with bright light. Even with all the light scenes, the video still had a dark, mysterious element to it that was quite unique. Like I mentioned, the video wasn’t dark or even darkly lit, but was just an atmosphere that is present when watching the video.
On top of all of this, there was some brilliant use of primary colors throughout the video such as the blue glow that smothers the viewer when starting up the video, or the red blinds that blanket Nayoung in one of the opening scenes. They used a good range of lighting and color to keep the video interesting.
Moving on to the song itself, the instrumentals were pretty basic for the most part. It was a typical EDM track that builds up to the chorus and has a drop, but the thing that grabbed my attention in this song wasn’t necessarily the way the backing track progressed or moved, rather it was the vocal lines and the built up layering that was present in the latter half of the song.
As I mentioned, the song, vocally, was typical Pristin, but the amount of additional parts added on top of each other towards the end of the song were incredible. It wasn’t even necessarily a huge build up or climax, but the steady movement that progressed forward until the song was at its peak was impressive. I almost didn’t notice the movement that was happening. But at the beginning of the song, I felt bored a little, but by the end, I was all in.
What did you think of Pristin V’s debut song “Get It”? Was this what you were expecting from a subunit from Pristin? Who is your bias in Pristin V? I think mine is still Nayoung because who can resist her cute pout face? Let me know what your thoughts are in the comment section. Thank you so much for supporting me and hopefully I’ll be able to make more posts more often. See ya!
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.
