Twice is a 9 member girl group under JYP Entertainment. They debuted back in 2015 with “Like Ooh Ahh” and have changed the K-pop scene ever since. K-pop was steering towards another boy group wave. BTS, Exo, SHINee, Big Bang, Got7 and many more boy groups were beginning to dominate where girl groups had once ruled in the prior years. Twice brought to light again that K-pop doesn't have to be serious. It doesn't have to be hard and sexy, but it can be cute and goofy. Today, that girl group and its 9 members have returned with “Likey” to prove once again that cutesy concepts can be incredible and can rule the K-pop industry.
The brilliance and vividness of that video made me almost have a dizzy spell. That's not a bad thing though. Don't get me wrong. I loved the song and video. The video followed the girls traveling through a city on various vehicles. Skateboard, bicycle, train, roller skates and whatever else. The dance breaks took place either in an alleyway or a gymnasium and like I said, the video was extremely vibrant with colors. It's strange because even though winter is creeping up really quickly, the song and video had a summer vibe.
I don't know how to describe the musical style of the chorus. It had an EDM build up but the actual chorus was musically airy and light. The overall song was hard hitting and had a great beat but that chorus was heavenly. I'm not sure quite yet, but this might be my favorite Twice comeback they've done. Let's talk about the rap section for a minute. My girl Chae rapped. Of course she rapped, she's the rapper, but she didn't get as much time as Dahyun. But Dahyun's trap break was unexpected but epic. Her little dab was cute too even though I thoroughly hate dabbing. However, the overall vibe of the song was extremely emotionally driven. Not an emotion song exactly, but a song that was driven by an emotionally profound event or moment in life. It was beautiful and moving.
