On September 9th, real life couple HYUNA and DAWN released the music video to their 1st single, ‘PING PONG’. It acts as the title to their simultaneously dropped 1st mini album, ‘1 + 1 = 1’. The two artists were announced as a couple to the public in August 2018. Following their departure from the agency, Cube Entertainment, the two joined singer PSY‘s label, P NATION. Developing their solo careers throughout the past couple years, this is the first release of the lovebirds.
Lyrically, the track discusses the heating passion between two lovers, asking them to ‘play the ping pong’. The moombahton beat drives energy forward, and combined with a brassy beat drop, it creates a lively party atmosphere. The constant shift between the distinct vocal tones of both singers is cut clear, but this makes for a a ping pong dynamic. A drop into rap by DAWN in the bridge, and a dance break reinforce the varied constant zesty vibe of the track.

HYUNA & DAWN ‘PING PONG’ MV:
Although the music video doesn’t follow a storyline, we see the lovey-dovey moments of the two. Visually, it is a spectacle to watch. An explosion of colour in every set makes you think twice what you’re watching. This translates into the outfits with the two sporting bright blue and neon yellow hair. With leopard, cheetah, denim, sparkles and fluffy elements, they threw every material in here. It makes for a feast to the senses. The MV ends nicely with the two finishing the choreography holding each other and giving a cheeky kiss.
