This collab of (G)IDLE‘s Soyeon, aespa‘s Winter, and IVE‘s Liz comes together thanks to Korea’s desire for Busan to get the 2030 World Expo host bid. Unfortunately, it’s a lot more “HONEY BEE“ than it is “Wow Thing“ by my count.
Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s particularly bad or anything, and it has its moments. However, it’s a pretty safe, upbeat, disco-y track that’s buoyed a bit by the performance of the girls themselves, and in particular all the chorus made me want to do was listen to Wonder Girls‘ “Nobody“ instead. I assume that’s part of the reason this sound and hook was chosen since it’s a proven commodity, but that also makes it rather disposable in the end.
