With 2019 quickly coming to an end, the team from Officially Kmusic has chosen their favourite comebacks and debuts of the year. Check them out below!
AOA ‘New Moon’:
AOA came back with their sixth mini album titled ‘New Moon‘ on the 26th of November. This marked their return from long hiatus since ‘Bingle Bangle‘ and their first album after their praised appearance on Mnet‘s ‘Queendom‘. ‘New Moon‘ carries a special meaning for both the group and fans as it is the group’s first official album as five members. The mini album consists of five songs, the title track being ‘Come See Me‘ and including ‘Sorry‘ which they had performed prior on Queendom. The album consists of five songs that show different sides of AOA that have not been showed before. Each song has its own charms and is definitely worth a listen to!
‘Come See Me‘ shows the AOA members as moon hunters who try to save Yuna from a room filled with surveillance, each member yielding their own weapon. The music video and song shows off a stronger image than the girls had previously shown, proving AOA‘s capabilities! The song is also very catchy and mixes elements of songs from the second generation as well as trendy raps. With it’s catchy and exciting chorus and killing points, ‘Come See Me‘ is definitely an impressive song. The song truly shows each members’ charms perfectly as Seolhyun shows off her attractive deeper vocals, Yuna and Hyejeong‘s impressive vocals, Jimin‘s catchy rap and Chanmi‘s ear-catching rap and dancing!
The second track is ‘Sorry‘ which the group performed on Queendom. ‘Sorry‘ shows the girls taking on the tomb raider concept and again shows off a stronger image. ‘Sorry‘ is a darker song with a deeper tone but is very catchy with its mysterious sounds. The song perfectly catches the members’ strengths and as a result the performance AOA showed was absolutely stunning, especially Chanmi‘s action scene!
The third track is ‘Magic Spell‘ and just like its name, the song is extremely catchy like magic! The chorus has a whistling sound that is fast-paced giving the song a kick that is also extremely catchy! The mysteriousness of the first two songs is intensified in this song but made more upbeat and fast paced! ‘Ninety Nine‘ is also fast paced but is matched with the members’ slower than faster singing creating a nice rhythm. The song also mixes low and high notes together as well as shows the girls’ harmonisation creating a somewhat mystical vibe! The last song ‘My Way‘ starts off slowly before picking up a little pace and then getting stronger. It seems the song wants to send the message that the girls want to go ‘My Way‘ as they show a stronger and somewhat rebellious side which is also reflected in the sudden changes in the song.
DAY6 ‘The Book of Us: Gravity’:
DAY6‘s ‘The Book of Us: Gravity‘ which was released earlier this year is also one that stuns. DAY6 always impresses with their own songs and this time was no different as they prepared a mini album with six songs that were easy to listen to yet had so much meaning behind it. The band also toured in Australia during November and we hope you were able to see the group perform some of these songs live!
The first track on the album is ‘For Me‘ which is an upbeat song that gives off happy and positive vibes. The song is easy to listen to but actually talks about a deeper topic of getting to know yourself better and in turn loving yourself more. Each member never fails to convey such meaning through their voices. The next song is their title ‘Time of Our Life‘ which may be one of their most exciting songs! The song starts with a strong and fast yet uplifting beat, thanks to Wonpil, that may remind some of an anime opening which means its conveys a sense of positive energy and innocence. The song talks about writing a new page with memories filled with a loved person in an exciting and energetic way. The music video also showed a scene of the DAY6 members playing around with a large book prop which made the song even more fun and playful!
The third track is ‘How to Love‘ which is very groovy and conveys a sense of innocence and playfulness as the members ask about love. The soft beats and the members’ voices merge perfectly to make the song softer at times and slightly more exciting at others. ‘How to Love‘ also plays on a slight jazzy feel that adds to the groovy nature of the song. ‘Wanna Go Back‘ starts off with an ear-catching sound before transitioning to a catchy rhythm. Whilst the song starts off somewhat softly with Jae‘s vocals, the chorus hits harder as if trying to convey how much they ‘Wanna Go Back‘. Young K‘s deeper voice and Sungjin‘s husky voice conveys this message well but the highlight of the song is definitely Dowoon‘s short but impactful part!
‘Cover‘ is the fifth track of the mini album and the only ballad. The song starts off slowly with Wonpil‘s heart-wrenching vocals and the sound of the instruments slowly gets louder and stronger as the chorus approaches. The chorus merges softer and stronger notes together to make the song more dramatic and heart-breaking. The song talks about being afraid of a loved one finding out about their weaker and tainted side and the song conveys this sadness perfectly. The last track is ‘Best Part‘ which is one of my personal favourites! It starts off slowly, with the sounds of echoed claps before more instruments can be heard. The song takes a faster turn and becomes very energetic during the chorus. The slower parts of the song and faster chorus seems to symbolise how despite worries that may weigh you down, realising that now is your best moment can help you to live to the fullest!
ONEUS ‘Light Us’:
ONEUS made their official debut with their mini album ‘Light Us‘ earlier this year in January and they sure made an impact! The six songs, not including the intro, showed different sides of the rookie group proving their strong capabilities. Their performance was also stunning despite them being rookies and they have proved to be an amazing group with their constant impressive releases this year. They are surely a group to look out for in the future!
The album starts with the intro ‘LIGHT US‘ which features a slow and deep rap that is somewhat sensual before a more lighter and softer singing can be heard. The next song is ‘ZigZag‘ which is an upbeat and fun song. It has a sense of playfulness and the chorus is very catchy! Ravn and Leedo show off their playful rap giving the song more energy before the song takes a slower turn before the chorus hits again. The title track is ‘Valkyrie‘ and is just a perfect debut song. ‘Valkyrie‘ shows each members’ strength and charms proving how capable they are. Ravn shows he can rap and sing , Leedo wows with his deep rap, Seoho and Keonhee both show off their attractive voices whilst Hwanwoong and Xion show they can not only sing, but also put on an impressive performance! The point dance is somewhat unusual yet fits in perfectly with the song and the song itself is powerful, chic and catchy. ‘Valkyrie‘ also uses lots of trendy sounds that adds a bit of hip hop and power to the song!
The fourth track is ‘Red Thread‘, the only ballad on the album. A soft song, ‘Red Thread‘ tries to show the members’ vocals more here and the group shows how they can go from playful to powerful and then emotional. The song is a slow song that picks up some speed during the chorus to add more emotion to the song and make it more dramatic. ‘Eye Contact‘ is upbeat and trendy with its strong beats and its catchy chorus! The song starts off a little slowly before it builds up and hits hard during the chorus. Ravn and Leedo‘s rap also adds a groovy and hip aspect to the song.
‘Hero‘ is more mysterious and has similar vibes to ‘Valkyrie‘ although is not as upbeat and fast. The song has a steady beat that speeds up just a little during the chorus to give it a bit more of energy. ‘Hero‘ is a groovy song that also shows off the members’ distinct voices with its catchy beats . The last song on the mini album is ‘Crazy & Crazy‘ that again, shows a different side of the group. The song starts off with trendy hip hop sounds before a strong rap can be heard. The song has a strong hip hop vibe before it transitions to a more groovy and upbeat R&B sound. It merges the two styles together perfectly and shows that ONEUS can pull of any concept and genre.
GOT7’S ‘YOU CALLING MY NAME’:
GOT7 started the year with their release of their mini album, ‘Spinning Top : Between Security & Insecurity’. The title track ‘Eclipse’ which featured their signature synth sound. However, when the group released ‘You Calling My Name’ and it’s related mini album, the group had a shift in concept. They went completely sexy and it shook fans to their core. The now iconic leather suits in the MV were a sight to behold.
The title track featured a minimalist sound in the opening but expanded more into the second chorus. With the use of Jinyoung‘s falsetto and Yugyeom‘s lighter tone, it elevated the restrained yet sexy soundscape. JB‘s opening line with his sultry tone already made the song unique from all their previous title tracks. Add Mark and Bambam‘s softer raps and Jackson‘s deeper tone and you get a nice contrast throughout the track. And don’t forget about Youngjae‘s strong tone, which makes an impressive appearance in every GOT7 song.
The most notable part of the choreography is definitely the start of the song when the members are all lying around JB. He makes contact with everyone, going around to each of the members by touching their feet. It’s looks simple, but when perfectly executed, looks flawless.
The mini album, too, is great. There are no true ballads this time but the upbeat-ness of the album leaves you bouncing all day. Notable tracks would be ‘Thursday’ and ‘Crash and Burn’ which were both promoted as side tracks during the group’s comeback shows.
ASTRO’S ‘ALL NIGHT’:
Fans of ASTRO were very highly anticipating this comeback and it did not disappoint. Following their release of mini album with title track ‘Crazy Sexy Cool’ in 2017, the group never had a proper comeback show for their next release with title track ‘Always You’. This was due to the ongoing issues happening at their entertainment agency at the time. It wasn’t until over one year later in January this year, that ASTRO could finally make a comeback. The group come back with their first full album since their debut in 2016, with title track ‘All Night’.
The song was a departure from their last promoted song, ‘Crazy Sexy Cool’ but it amped up the sexiness yet elegance of the group. The white suits the group wears in the MV show a sense of almost royalty. The song starts with a nice synth with Moonbin but when the chorus hits, it hits hard whilst still having a restraint with pretty synths. Main vocal MJ shows off his impacting tone when he hits the high note before the final refrain. The last part of the song is straight up a dance break and the members have lots of fun with it. They display their charisma and bright personalities. Raps from Rocky and Jinjin both are chill, then vocals and visuals served with Eunwoo and now purple haired Sanha completed a perfect comeback.
Choreography wise, again the start is the most notable part of it. When the rolling synth starts the song, all the members roll on their backs in seamless succession. The ending pose is unique too, with four members sitting, MJ laying down and Sanha standing.
The album contained 10 tracks and all of them are amazing. Most of them fall in the same realm of the title track of beautiful synth pieces but overall it’s definitely a more mature, sexy sound compared to ASTRO’s previous iconic fun, bubbly image. A notable track would be ‘Bloom‘ which is written and produced by the members. It’s a beautiful soft ballad with an orchestra like instrumental.
Just to top it all off, this album was their first to sell over 100,000 copies. They were also awarded their first-ever music show win with this title track. Congratulations to ASTRO!
Kicking off the new year, GFRIEND released their 2nd full album, ‘Time For Us’ with title track, ‘Sunrise’ in January. Following their cute and bright concept comeback with their previous title track ‘Sunny Summer’, the group returned to their sentimental sound. The sun trilogy also ended with this comeback, which started from their 2018 release ‘Time For The Moon Night’. The GFriend logos below for each comeback show that completion.
‘Sunrise’ is a mid tempo song complete with orchestra like instrumentals. The song’s dynamic shifts from the muted almost spoken delivered lyrics from SinB, Sowon, Yerin and Umji, to an elegant chorus. The post-chorus has nice harmonies between all the members. After the bridge though, we get a signature Yuju high note but it doesn’t stop there. The song changes to a higher key and we get multiple harmonies and extended high notes from Yuju, SinB and Eunha. All of them sound amazing and are a wonder to the ears. The final chorus of the song seriously explosively slaps.
The MV is visually gorgeous. It features an old timely filter with many flowers and roses. The group is wearing clothes between elegant floral dresses and stronger black and white ensemble. The whole set up is beautiful, notably the start of the MV where Eunha plays an old piano in the middle of the forest. The song and MV brought elegance in K-pop to a whole other level.
You can’t talk about GFriend without talking about choreography. It starts with the group all laying down and when shot from above, you see it represents the sun. The members then move their arms and legs to represent the sun rays moving during a sunrise. Following this, the chorus shows a simple but refined dance before the group moves in unison for the post-chorus. This obviously shows the group’s famous ability to perform in exact synchronization. Finally, the best part is the finale of the song shows all members return to the floor and they end the song in the same position they started with. That’s some clever choreography!
Their album accompanying the comeback is their first full album since ‘LOL’ released back in 2016. So understandably, fans were extremely excited for this release. The tracks range from a couple of cute bops like ‘Glow’ to soft ballads like ‘It’s You’ and harder hitting songs like ‘Only 1’ (my personal favourite track off the album). There’s something for everyone. One notable track would be ‘You Are Not Alone’. The song was actually in contention to be the title track and it definitely has the quality of one. It shows the beautiful vocal tones of the members and is a mid tempo almost sad sounding song.
‘Love Oh Love’ is another notable track which was rumoured to being the title track for the group’s first comeback after their debut with ‘Glass Bead’. It’s a treat for fans as the song was recorded in 2015 and was left unchanged. So fans can go down memory lane back to the vocal tones and sound of GFriend back in their debut days.
Stray Kid’s ‘Side Effects‘:
The ‘Side Effects’ teaser images were great and so was the teaser. Hence, fans were highly anticipating this comeback, and they were not disappointed! The comeback proved to be amazing.
The song stated with Seungmin singing in his lower register. It had an industrial EDM feel that producing unit 3RACHA cleverly implemented into the song. The lyrics and meaning of the song were truly impressive. ‘Side Effects‘ talks about the effects of untamed bravado but also the effects of self-doubt, anger, confusion and anxiety on a young persons life.
The choreography for ‘Side Effects’ was very unique. In the main chorus the members are mainly punching the air around them and making sudden movements in many directions, which is great in showing the ‘Side Effects’ of something. The choreography was also extremely powerful and engaging.
Astro’s ‘Blue Flame‘:
Initially, ASTRO‘s music was very bubble gum pop. They moved onto doing more mature comebacks like ‘All Night’ starting from this year.
The reggae feel of ‘Blue Flame‘ that’s polished just that little bit to make it fit into the genre of pop is great! The vocals and rapping were outstanding as usual. The vocalist and rappers in Astro never fail to impress.
The choreography for this song had its usual uniqueness, full of clean lines and power that is recognisable anywhere.
The world was shocked when Big Hit Entertainment announced that they were going to be debuting another boy group, especially after the success of BTS. K-pop fans were highly anticipating this debut, and they were certainly not disappointed.
‘Crown‘ is highly enjoyable and addictive. The bubble gum pop feel that reminds me of Astro‘s earlier comebacks was great! I loved it! The song is very meaningful, showing that the boys love themselves even with their “horns” and so everyone who listens to this song should love themselves and all their flaws.
JUS2’s ‘Focus On Me’
GOT7’s second subunit, JUS2, debuted this year with the mini album ‘Focus‘ featuring the title track ‘Focus On Me‘. ‘Focus On Me‘ mixes House and R&B resulting in a relaxed and sensual song that is perfect for chill days at home. One of the most visually stimulating music videos to have been released by any members of GOT7, this video shows all the good that can come from using a green screen. The visual effects throughout the music video wowed fans, with many hoping the director would continue working with the group.
While GOT7 is known for having powerful sounds, JUS2 is the opposite. From ‘Senses‘ to the aptly titled ‘Long Black‘, the entire album is something you might hear inside of a coffee shop or fashion boutique. It’s no surprise to see both members of this subunit were involved with lyric writing and composing all tracks on the album. JB has credits on four tracks, including the title, teaming up with Royal Dive (‘Teenager‘ – GOT7, ‘Take The Dive‘ – Jonghyun) and Deepshower on ‘Touch‘ and ‘Senses‘. Yugyeom works with Effn, a name fans are used to seeing in the credits on his tracks both those released with GOT7 and on Soundcloud, on ‘Love Talk‘ and ‘Long Black‘.
CLC’s ‘Me (美)’
2019 has been branded the year of what many call ‘noise music’. Loud, EDM heavy tracks were favoured this year by many groups, both male and female. CLC’s digital single release ‘Me‘ was anything but just ‘noise’.
‘Me (美)‘ uses the Chinese character as a double meaning, as the translation means “beautiful” and is pronounced like the English title word. The song mixes EDM sounds with a more tropical beat through the verses, making for an interesting and fun song that is perfect to dance to. The lyrics to the song depict CLC as women confident in their beauty, saying things like “Feeling like a picture, I’m more perfect than something like that.” The track’s music video fits perfectly with the theme, featuring the girls in both a variety of fierce outfits and traditional clothing looking picture perfect no matter what. It seems like this is the year CLC has finally found their stride and left fans ready for more.
After debuting in October last year, ATEEZ have had an explosive year and established themselves as monster rookies. No rookies have done it like them – within a year of debut, they have released around ten albums and performed concerts around the world. Their efforts have caused them to achieve international success shortly after their debut.
While all of their comebacks (three comebacks, not including their debut) have been amazing, their latest comeback ‘Wonderland‘, released on October 8th, stands out because it sounds like an anthem. Since pre-debut, the ATEEZ flag has been present in their videos. ‘Wonderland‘ is the title track of the last instalment of their ‘Treasure‘ series, album ‘Treasure Ep.Fin: All to Action‘. It really does satisfactorily conclude the series. The song has powerful dance moves and an even more memorable dance break, in which they dance in separate smaller units. It’s a fast-paced song with an intense build up to the chorus.
The album had a variety of songs from different genres. Just to point out some of their memorable songs, ‘Win‘ is a catchy song with elements of tropical house in it. It’s about being victorious even in tough situations, which serves as a motivating and inspirational song. The song goes hard in the chorus, which mostly features a strong instrumental coupled with Mingi‘s deep vocals. ‘Sunrise‘ is an extremely memorable and meaningful song, both for ATEEZ and Atinys. The lyrics of ‘Sunrise‘ discuss leader Hongjoong‘s struggles as he dealt with loneliness when he was the only trainee at KQ Entertainment for six months. Slowly, the other members joined him in the company, and he finally felt content again as the group came together. Even the choreography of the song demonstrates this. Hongjoong starts rapping by himself while performing the choreography, then Yunho joins him, and subsequently the whole group comes in. As such, the lyrics will hit you right in the feels and also motivate you. It’s a slower-paced song that highlights their lovely vocals. ‘Dazzling Light‘ and ‘Mist‘ both have ATEEZ‘s signature sounds as they are catchy with EDM elements, making them enjoyable to listen to.
BTS’ ‘Boy With Luv’:
BTS had their highly-anticipated comeback in 2019 because ARMYs knew that the group would be starting a brand new series after the conclusion of ‘Love Yourself‘ last year. Indeed, BTS made their huge comeback on April 12th with title track ‘Boy With Luv‘ featuring American singer Halsey and mini-album ‘Map of the Soul: Persona‘. She even flew to South Korea to film the MV with them and danced on camera for the first time. What made it even bigger was the fact that the boys, and Halsey, broke the world record for most-viewed online music video in 24 hours, with a whopping 74.6 million views. They made headlines around the world after achieving this feat.
‘Boy With Luv‘, which makes references to their 2014 hit ‘Boy in Luv‘, especially with their choreography and poses, is a bouncy and bubbly feel-good song. Full of bright and vivid colours and a reference to movie ‘La La Land‘, the MV matches the song’s upbeat and fun energy. Not only do they have stunning visuals (who can forget V‘s blue hair and their iconic pink suits?), but the choreography is also fun to watch. The song is super catchy and addictive and will automatically put you in a good mood. RM‘s legendary bridge involves Jin throwing a rose and shows all of BTS‘ title tracks and album names displayed in bright lights in the MV, highlighting their immense success over the years.
‘Map of the Soul: Persona‘ featured a variety of genres, showcasing the group’s musical versatility. ‘Intro: Persona‘ was RM‘s solo song, which served as the series’ introductory track. It incorporates traditional hip-hop elements and has similarities to BTS‘ early music. ‘Mikrokosmos‘ is a bittersweet and heartwarming song that draws references to light and the night sky. Meanwhile, ‘Dionysus‘ is a more intense song with rock elements that references Greek mythology. It has a powerful choreography which is at times quite dangerous to execute. Fans will find this song memorable because of Jin’s ad-libs and falsetto at the end. British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran helped to write ‘Make It Right‘, a song that highlights the group’s light but melodic vocals. The trumpet sounds in the background make the song even more enjoyable to listen to. They later released a remix version featuring American singer Lauv. ‘Home‘ is intense but upbeat and features strong beats and powerful vocals. Of course, throughout the album, the rappers shine with their fast-paced and clear raps. ‘Jamais Vu‘ is the slowest song on the album, sung only by Jin, Jungkook and J-Hope. It’s a sweet and hopeful song about overcoming hardships.
Fans have already theorised that the next instalment in their new series will be called ‘Shadow‘ and are already highly anticipating the group’s next comeback.
Top girl group TWICE released ‘Fancy‘ on April 22nd. ‘Fancy‘ was monumental in their career as it marked a significant change in their style of music. While their previous releases had been classified as bubblegum pop and quite girly, ‘Fancy‘ was the first title track in which they incorporated the “girl crush” concept. They pulled off this concept so well. ‘Fancy‘ is a bubbly and upbeat song that shows their maturity as an iconic girl group in the industry. Chaeyoung, in particular, caught the attention of fans because of her mature image. The MV is fairly abstract as it features planets and riding a roller coaster through space. The choreography has also become iconic, especially the various hand gestures and arm movements.
When SM Entertainment announced that they would be debuting a super boy group, fans around the world had mixed feelings, especially about what each member would bring to the group. However, SuperM, made up of boy group members Taemin (SHINee), Kai and Baekhyun (EXO), Mark and Taeyong (NCT) and Ten and Lucas (WayV), made their star-studded debut in the US on October 3rd. ‘Jopping‘, primarily sang in English, is an energetic song about being on the world stage as superstars. This was suitable for all the members of the group, who have achieved worldwide success in their boy groups. Each member has time to shine in the song as they each bring their own uniqueness and talent to the group. Mark‘s rap after the first chorus was particularly outstanding. The MV, filmed in Dubai, is futuristic, featuring tall skyscrapers and huge audiences. The song itself starts with a bang and sounds like an anthem. The group went on to promote this song on ‘The Ellen Show‘ and taught Ellen the dance.
SuperM‘s album only had one other song in which all members participated, which was ‘I Can’t Stand the Rain‘. This song expertly incorporated the traditional Chinese instrument guzheng into the pre-chorus. It starts with chanting and a low drum before the members layer their voices over each other. This unique style is not often explored by K-pop groups, so it was refreshing to hear it performed by the top idols in the industry. The rest of the songs on the album have R&B elements and are sung in units instead.
SuperM also marks Taemin‘s third debut in three consecutive generations of K-pop, making him the only idol to have done so: second generation with SHINee, third generation as a solo artist, and fourth generation with SuperM. Talk about legendary!
Kim Jaehwan’s ‘The Time I Need’:
Wanna One‘s main vocal, Kim Jaehwan, made his first comeback as a solo artist on December 12th with title track ‘The Time I Need‘ and second mini album ‘Moment‘. While his debut title track had been a slow ballad, this song has a completely different musical direction. ‘The Time I Need‘ is more upbeat and catchier, with an eye-catching choreography. As per its title, the MV features time as the main theme, with clocks being primarily used as props. Jaehwan in a beret and the pretty sky at sunset also make an appearance. Even the choreography follows the hands of a clock. About halfway through the song, Jaehwan has a partner choreography with a female dancer.
The rest of the album also features different genres of music. ‘NUNA‘ is a fun and groovy song with a nice beat. In it, Jaehwan sings about finding an older woman attractive. On the other hand, ‘Who Am I‘ is a reflective song about finding one’s place in the world. As such, it is slower and more bittersweet. Wannables were delighted to discover that former Wanna One member Woojin, who is now in AB6IX, had collaborated with Jaehwan in their track ‘Paradise‘, a fairly upbeat and cheerful song. When Jaehwan had first listened to the song, he immediately asked Woojin to feature on the track with him. Fans have discovered that some of the lyrics relate to Wanna One and the boys’ time and memories in the group. Jaehwan has proved himself as a versatile singer who is capable of conquering totally different musical styles, as expected from the nation’s chosen main vocal.
Special mention – NCT Dream x HRVY’s ‘Don’t Need Your Love’:
This collaboration isn’t a debut or comeback, but it was an amazing release that came out on June 6th. 2019 saw many K-pop idols collaborating with Western artists, one of which was the collaboration track ‘Don’t Need Your Love‘ between NCT Dream and English singer HRVY for SM STATION 3. The collaboration came about when HRVY visited South Korea earlier this year and visited SM Entertainment to hang out with the boys. Despite the language barrier, the boys became fast friends with HRVY, especially after filming the MV for ‘Don’t Need Your Love‘. It was highly anticipated, not only because of both artists, but also because it was the group’s first release since ‘We Go Up‘ in 2018. It was also their first release as a six-member group since Mark graduated from the group.
As told by HRVY in the teaser, the DNYL club is a student club for those who were suffering because of love, whether it was for reasons of being rejected, broken up with, or dealing with a broken heart. This heartbreak anthem is a fun and bubbly song that celebrates the joys of being an independent person who does not need to rely on love for happiness. It’s upbeat and fun, and even has a cool choreography that HRVY participates in. The MV showed the NCT Dream members at different locations in the university, looking heartbroken and sad. Renjun sports tears and wipes them away as he laments about his broken heart. However, HRVY individually finds all of them and convinces them to join the DNYL club. The first verse and chorus are sung by HRVY in English as he recruits the NCT members. The first chorus shows the members and HRVY all happily dancing together in matching hoodies. NCT Dream sing the rest of the song, with HRVY chiming in mainly in the pre-chorus and chorus. By the time Renjun begins the second verse, the members all look much more mature, surrounded by neon signs and lights. Fans were shocked but delighted to hear Jisung‘s voice, which is now deep and pleasing to listen to. Their pink suits at the end of the MV are also memorable. NCT Dream and HRVY, who all embody youth, definitely made a refreshing collaboration.
To this day, NCTzens are still waiting for a dance practice and live performance of this song.
We can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for K-pop!
