Are you a SONE? Do you not like “I Got A Boy“? Oh no! What to do?
Well, you could take after SNSD and just use cognitive dissonance to convince yourself everything will be fine.
“It was our first time trying this genre, and the tempo changes all seemed unfamiliar. I couldn’t tell where things were in the composition. It isn’t a hook song that quickly catches people’s ears, so I think it was more [strange]. But once you hear our song and scratch the surface and keep listening to it, you will discover fun elements to the song. The members also began to like it more after listening to it not once, but 100 times.”
“The trend is like this nowadays and this is the image we were aiming for, so I would like for [fans] to understand that this is ‘Girls’ Generation’ style even if it’s not their personal style.”
The rest of the quotes are about artistry and choreography and shit, which I never take seriously from any idol group because they have nothing to do with it. Not hating on SNSD, just on idol groups talking about it in general, because it usually amounts to them coming up with convoluted bullshit to try and make themselves feel like artists.
Anyway, their quotes sound like most of the positive takes I’ve read thus far.
IT SOUNDS LIKE ABSOLUTE SHIT AT FIRST BUT ONCE YOU LISTEN TO IT LIKE FIVE MILLION TIMES IT’S FUCKING GREAT Y’ALL
Yeah, no. At that point, all that’s happened is you develop Stockholm Syndrome with the song.
