I made a decision. I’m going to upload two more music video reviews tonight and then I’ll move onto my video for tomorrow. Thank you for understanding everything. Right now, I’m going to check out H.U.B and Apink’s special release for their 7th anniversary of being in the industry. I don’t think I’ve ever checked out H.U.B but I’ve heard some stuff from them and I’m excited to do my first ever review for their music tonight. Also, I’m a huge Pink Panda, so of course I’m stoked for Apink’s special
The video for “When a Blossom Day of Cherry Blossom” by H.U.B looked really nice for being what appeared to be a handy cam. The members were dancing and singing the song in what appeared to be a stage setup, similar to something you’d see in a stage performance. They are all super lovely girls, but I need to break my own heart on this one.
The audio of the song was terrible. The whole production was off. First of all, the songwriting was really poorly done because it sounded like a typical ballad for a girl group. Nothing really stood out. The verse and chorus instrumentation didn’t change at all, so it didn’t feel like it was going anywhere. It would have been nice to see some progression. The next point is the vocal to backing track ratio. What the producer did, was bring the vocals way up front which is what you want in a Pop song. However, in doing this, he made the vocals peak at certain points which means he didn’t master the final version of the song. Also, the backing track was buried. It almost disappeared at times because of how prominent the vocals were. They were good singers, but I wanted to hear a track not an A Capella.
I don’t have much to say about Apink’s “Miracle” except that I’m proud to be a Pink Panda. I love these girls so much. Watching that video looking back on the years, made me appreciate Eunji even more. Her smile is gorgeous. Chorong is cute as anything I’ve ever seen and Hayoung is the one stealing my heart slowly but surely. I love all these girls and wish them another successful seven years. I hope and pray for them and for Pink Pandas everywhere that they will continue on and do what they love doing, which is making music for their loyal fans.
The song was beautiful, as all Apink songs are, but this song had a tinge of hopefulness, sadness, memories, nostalgia, and regret all twined into one beautiful masterpiece. Congratulations, Apink on seven years. Eunji, Chorong, Hayoung, Bomi, Naeun, and Namjoo. You are all beautiful and whatever the future holds for you lovely ladies, your Pink Pandas will forever support you.
Thank you all for your support towards me, but let’s not forget about the artists that work day in and day out to bring you music, entertainment, and so much more. Let’s remember the successes and failures of Kpop because each person who goes through the Trainee process deserves success and deserves recognition. Thank you and I’ll see you in my next review.
My Quick Reviews are conglomerates of music video reviews. For instance, if there are several releases in a single day that are all related or somewhat related, I will do a Quick Review segment.
