Today, I’ll be talking about a back to back to back to back girl group battle! Who are our heroins for today? It’ll be DSP’s maknae girl group APRIL, Produce 101’s IOI, JYP’s fierce girl group TWICE and Woollim’s fresh girl group LOVELYZ. These girl groups happened to have promoted at the same time! Its going to be a fierce battle, but, in terms of the charts, TWICE emerged to be on top. But, since I am here to talk about these beautiful girls, I would be disregarding their standing in the music charts. Shall we begin then?
First up, we have APRIL.
To be honest, by far, this is the most amazing song APRIL had released. The entire album is fantastic, I loved every single song in their second mini album ‘Spring’, specially ‘눈을 뜨면’ (When I Open My Eyes).
The title song, ‘Tinkerbell’ is very catchy, the music is very fresh and alive, I loved how my baby, Yena, got lines, she got real singing LINES! She’s even the center. Their live outfits are cute as well, they really looked like real fairies, specially Yena with her hair.
I really like how they match the color green so well. Actually, Korean netizens said that APRIL chose a wrong time to have a comeback because of a very stiff competition, they’re actually competing with VIXX, APink’s Eunji, IOI and Twice which are all battling for the number 1 spot. Well, these netizens are right this time, ‘Tinkerbell’ is a very cute and warm song, perfect for spring. I just wish APRIL success in the coming years.
Here’s a glimpse of my bias, Yena the squirrel.
Here comes IOI!
Its not surprising how IOI really became an instant hit after the success of Produce 101. These girls have worked so hard just to debut and reach this far, and what do you know, its actually paying off! IOI is doing pretty well these days, tv and radio appearances, commercials, etc. Now about the song, ‘Dream Girls’, which actually matched them perfectly! The song was really made for them! Although IOI is set to disband after 10 months, I’m pretty sure these girls will leave a huge impact in the kpop industry.
In their first mini album, I really liked ‘Doo Wap’ and ‘똑 똑 똑’. Their vocals are just so fine, it could always put me to sleep, that level of calmness and warmness. Anyway, I just want to give a shout-out to IOI’s choreographer, I felt bad for Yunjung because she only stood in the center once, she was deprived of the spotlight because of her previous issue regarding her stealing the spotlight from the actual centers, I felt bad for her. Nevertheless, the song is good.
Their live performance is magical! It felt like I’m watching a group of cotton candies dancing tho, they’re that cute and sweet.
Make way for my bias, Chungchung baby (Chungha)
Stop thinking once, you better think TWICE!
First of all, I want to congratulate TWICE for the success ‘Cheer Up’ has been achieving lately, continue to slay TWICE! The girls are so pretty as well, I cannot handle my feels. Don’t forget Sana’s ‘shy shy shy’.
Now, about the song and the dance, I would like to give only compliments to this song, the beat is so catchy, the dance is so amazing, their vocals are still powerful and cute at the same time, good job JYP!
Their stage outfits are really pretty too! TWICE is doing pretty well, they deserve it. Keep it up, Twice!
Here’s my precious baby, Mina.
Last, but definitely not the least, Lovelyz!
To be honest, I was a bit disappointed because I was expecting an upgrade from ‘Ah-choo’ and ‘For You’, it took me sometime to appreciate the song. But hey, its Lovelyz anyway! Too bad, just like APRIL, Lovelyz came back in a wrong time.
As expected, their dancing skills are still perfect and very sync. Mijoo actually got even prettier. The constant thing about these girls is that their stage outfits are always creative, kudos to the coordi noona as well! Go go go Lovelyz!
My angel, Kei.
So yeah, its a tough decision, but I still made one. For me..
1st : APRIL – Tinkerbell
2nd : TWICE – Cheer Up
3rd : IOI – Dream Girls
4th : Lovelyz – Destiny
Well, this is my personal thoughts tho. Anyway, all these girl groups are the best!
