New JYP rookie group GOT7 releases “Girls Girls Girls”, which could have been A LOT better…

Hey guys and welcome back! I disappeared once again; not to fear, it was just to clean up (literally!) some things going on in my personal life at the moment.

Hmmm...it seemed promising enough...

Hmmm…it seemed promising enough…

But…I’ll leave that for another day; let’s get on with the actual review at hand! I found out about the debut of JYP’s new boy group GOT7 from my fellow blogger-friend Saphirya over at her website, and went ahead to check out their MV and song. And after watching the MV myself, I couldn’t agree more.

GOT7 released their debut MV “Girls Girls Girls” on the 15th this month, which I personally found out unexpectedly. I was looking out for plenty more comebacks, such as Royal Pirates, Gary and Rain (I know, delayed!!) So, founding out that a new rookie group had debuted, and under the company JYP, I was both excited and anticipating the greatest. Why? Because, GOT7 will mark the first boy band debut ever since 2PM, which was 6 years ago.

Yep, 6 years ago.

Now you understand the anticipation people.

Anyway, let’s move on to my thoughts on the MV.

Very disappointing.

There really isn’t much more that needs to be said.

…hahaha, just joking.

…About the “not much more to be said” bit, not the disappointment bit. And here’s why.

Firstly, let’s look at the MV.

So, the MV starts with a couple of 5 young, handsome boys riding these cool-looking skateboard contraptions down a very dead street. At first, it seems like any typical MV when a company is willing to invest a little bit more to make a MV seem more…film-like.

Can I just ask, was it just me or did anyone else think of buying those too?!

Can I just ask, was it just me or did anyone else think of buying those too?! THEY LOOK AWESOME!

Next, we move on to an underground club, where we figure out is probably the reason why the whole street is practically dead. Then, of course, the handsome hunks start dancing and singing.

Ah-ha, so that's where everyone has gone to...

Ah-ha, so that’s where everyone has gone to…

 

Sounds okay huh, only with the one problem…being is that it is sooooooooooooooo normalNothing new.

Sure, they are JYPE’s first hip-hop group, and so that alone is probably a big deal. However, since that is the case, why not push that whole image and slam it in my face? Because seriously, I couldn’t even tell until I looked up on Wiki (I know, like that place is worth trusting) and found out myself.

I wasn’t too sure what I was watching. The group seemed to be caught in a limbo state between being hardcore and being cutesy and thus, lost as to who they actually are. For me, when I think of a hip-hop group, it is groups such as B.A.P and Block B that first come into mind. And, with the looks of things, GOT7 doesn’t fit the bill quite yet.

From hardcore bad boy mode...

To the rebirth of the iconic "Wonder Girls" move...WTF?!

To the rebirth of the iconic “Wonder Girls” move…WTF?!

See what I mean?? Didn’t anyone else feel it too? This was the same with the song as well. In this case, the song seemed quite fitting with the whole MV, but likewise, I was left in a really uncomfortable and confused state of mind ><

But who knows, right? It’s only their debut track, and with any other Kpop group, judgement from the first song is probably the wrong thing to do. It will take some time for them to grow and become more professional as they experience more, but for now I’m not really digging their style, period.

Oh, by the way, I have a question that may be on a couple of people’s minds…what was the deal with the lonesome girl with no conclusion? You know who I’m talking about…

What's with the look, sweetie?

What’s with the look, sweetie?

Honestly, what was her purpose?! She just happens to come across a secret underground club (which could have been something ENTIRELY different and dangerous) and just stays there, no question about it.

Come on be honest, at least one of you guys forgot about her by the end of the whole MV...

Come on be honest, at least one of you guys forgot all about her by the end of the whole MV…

Really now, really JYP? N-no, nothing?! *Sigh* I give up…

Anyway, I think I’ll end this here for now. Need to get up bright-eyed and bushy tailed for work tomorrow (need to get to work by 7:30am *groan*) Tomorrow, hopefully I will type up a new MV I discovered over the week and share it with you all!

Welcome to the Kpop World boys, and enjoy...

  1. Lol I didn’t review the MV but I was wondering the same thing about that girl, “Why the fuck is she there?” She have no purpose to the MV except letting us discover with her that underground club… They could have just make a shoot where the camera follow the boys. If she is not appearing in another MV ( if they release an other on for this mini) there is no point for her to be there. And I would really like to know how the hell one of the boy lost that kind of hearing? Cause the two part were screwed or clipped together. The it has been found mean that the two part unscrew or unclipped and than clipped or screwed back together ?
