Jennie gets scared.
Finally got the chance to see this.
The MV - Boring, lacking any emotion or substance. I put the blame partially on the film crew and partially on Jennie for this. The colour grading is ok at best but I feel the whole video is just not shot particularly well. The lighting in the room with the chandelier was really bad. Nothing interesting actually happens except for the slightly shocking bit where Jennie removes her clothes in the laundromat. Speaking of clothes I actually liked most of the outfits in this.
YG spent money to go all the way to London to film this but barely managed to use that to any effect. There are no particularly good shots of London when it’s actually one of the nicest cities in the world.
Jennie herself is not compelling at all. She didn’t display any emotions particularly well and I never felt like she had strong eye-contact. She just looks the same here as she looks on stage: just really bored.
Song - Probably the worst solo girl song I’ve heard yet? Feels like the most generic of all party songs with nothing particularly interesting happening in it. There was no wow factor. Jennie isn’t the problem I thought, it’s Teddy himself who has produced this absolute mess of a song.
YG really hit a new low with this one. This song was surrounded by controversy from the start but overall didn’t match up to any of my expectations at all. Wasn’t YG all about quality over quantity? Well I’m seeing neither of those here. Nobody even asked for a solo from Jennie, a full group song is what he was being asked for.
K-pop is really competitive in 2018 which means having just an ok song will not do it anymore. There have been some really good girl group solos this year such as Olivia Hye’s Egoist or Sohee’s Hurry Up. When you see the MVs for these songs you can actually see what great producers can do, both in terms of the quality of film and music production. Maybe YG should watch them and learn something?
