Uh oh, here comes trouble... :P

Frankly though, I like this whole thing... I think it's a lot of fun. They remind me of early Fiestar (back when they weren't as generic k-porn as they are now) and Glam.... and of course SNSD and f(x) vibes. Didn't they say they were supposed to be somewhere in the middle of those two or something.

Maybe I just like weird things, but I like the song... been playing the MV all morning. I'd love to be able to tell the girls apart, though... :lol:

Don't we all? Even the Koreans are having a hard time differentiating them! At the moment I'm just calling them by their hair color :lol:

Here's the re-edited MV. Relevant changes:




All rainbows and sunshine now, eh. Kinda chuckle-worthy, this whole ordeal... :P







Their first three lives, that I've watched several times already, fun stuff.



Added the girls to the birthday database:



All still rook same! I think I'm gonna be able to tell them apart in a few months time... XD





Thank fuck for the color-coding, at least. Wendy - blue, Joy - green, Seulgi - orange, Irene - red...

I'mma edit some profiles and stuff into the first post in a bit...

At least I don't have to worry about favourites for now :P

Song's pretty neat, especially for debut. I don't know about Fiestar (never listened to them), but I was reminded of some combination between f(x), miss A and (dare I say it) 2ne1. All of which is a good thing for them. Now that they're setting themselves apart from the other rookies, hopefully they can set themselves apart from one another... :nervous

Some recent-ish pre-debut vids from the SMTown Youtube channel:



Wendy's got dem pipes.




Seulgi and Irene got the moves. And the vocals, of course.




Another Wendy vid, performing some Taylor Swift lol.

Second batch of the "big three" performances. Remaining utterly fun to watch.





 :deco:

Because the girls confused everyone in the beginning with their identical looks (mostly because of the styling) we've been discussing their appearance more than usual...

One aspect of this is the good old "who does she look like?" or simply "who does she remind you of?" My thoughts:

Irene - a hybrid of IU and Sujin from Wassup. Seriously, there are pics of different moments where she's pretty much identical to either, or both.
Joy - Her lips are super distinct, but she kinda reminds me of Q-ri from T-ara, probably because both are kinda "sparkly" lol...
Wendy - Tougher, but I maybe see a wee bit of Dahye from Bestie.
Seulgi - She has this distinct look with her single eyelids and stuff, but can't quite figure out who she reminds me of...

Anyway that's my random thoughts... what about you? Who do the girls remind you of? :P

Should be interesting to see Red Velvet without the bright concepts and the color coded hairs.

Yeah song is soooo relaxing.

Well, at least their English pronunciation is quite decent. I think they could've skipped some scenes and make the light jackets one longer, same with the dancing in the desert one. Some sounds in there annoy the hell out of me but overall it's quite a good song. I like it.
