NOT

This was me less than 2 months ago

BUT NOW HERE WE ARE OMGNG

Alright, on to the review!

This song Limitless is the title track for NCT 127’s – NCT sub-unit – most recent comeback. It is part of the album NCT #127 – LIMITLESS – The 2nd Mini Album.

Starting with the MV, which you kinda can watch here 😀

Nobody really knew what to expect, considering the messed up teasers, but the truth is, the MV was just as confusing. Apart from that, aesthetic 1000000% on point. Perfect balance between dancing scenes and actual mv scenes. The only thing I have to point out is the terrible distribuition of screen time. I mean, try comparing Yuta’s screen time to Mark’s and you’ll understand what I’m talking about

As for the song itself, HELL YES

Overall it’s such an amazing track I don’t even know where to turn. I’m not going to lie, I got a bit worried after Taeyong’s #2 teaser… I had no clue about the song and suddenly we’re introduced to that, somewhat particular, line in Taeyong’s rap with a, somewhat particular, vocal hum,… skill?

I love how in the song there are so many different moments… I mean, the song isn’t repetitive at all. It resembles the music video in a way that, there are no repetitive scenes. The overall theme is there and the song is consistent and well built, but it never gets boring and repetitive. Like I said, there are many different moments to it, making you feel differently about each one of them.

What makes me sad is that, with such a well-built track, whoever distributed the lines made a terrible job. Yeah, I know there are different roles to K-Pop members in a group, and normally who gets most lines takes less visible spots in choreographies but in this case it’s just too much.

Let’s look at Winwin. Yeah, he’s the main dancer and is often in the middle front, but throughout the whole song boy gets two lines which he doesn’t even get to sing on live peformances because of the audio effect. There is also Yuta, who gets one line, I repeat, one line. Sure, he gets to be in the middle aswell, but unlike Winwin who gets his fair share of screen time in the MV, Yuta barely even has that. Not even to mention JOHNNY. I mean, after all the hype I expected SM to be a bit more self-conscious and finally let the boy shine, but no, he got two lines. But hey, I’m already thankful for his debut.

There might be another way to interpretate this though, SM was defenitely aware of how much attention Johnny would get on this album and in order to balance that with the other 8 members, they tried to shift some of the spotlight back to other members.

However, Mark and Taeyong still got a heck of a lot of screen time/lines/middle or front spots in the choreo so yeah, there is still some work to be made.

In conclusion, I was absoluetely blown away with this track – as you might have noticed on the video – I noticed some major evolution since Fire Truck era and Doyoung has also improved a lot since The 7th Sense.

Once again I think I predicted a K-Pop event. Now I might just make a post begging for Hansol’s debut and it might just happen I mean WHO KNOWS

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I’m sorry.

Before I even start, click here for NCT U’s MV for the song The 7th Sense.

Alright. So, It’s been quite a while since it was announced that SM Rookies were FINALLY going to debut. From that moment I started preparing myself mentally. Yes, I needed preparation, they’re a group under SM Ent. afterall… Let’s be real, as much of a crazy that company is, they have never failed at debuting amazing artists. I already knew I was gonna surrender to NCT from the start. I was right.

Here’s a tad more of info about these boys. I guarantee you they are no ordinary rookie group.

NCT is the actual name of the whole group; stands for Neo Culture Technology. By the time their debut was announced, some other news came along. The truth is, this group currently has a total of 40 members. Hold on, I need a sec.

SGHVBDUIGBIDUEGHAHSJKASAAJJHBJHJVHHAHHHHHHHH HEJNKLSDODV WHAGSTYDG HOW IS THIS POASSIVLE SERSIOYTLY

40 members. For now.

For now?

Yes, friends. For now.

I admit I’m not 100% sure about this information. Only 99.9%… simply because I find it hard to even conceive the idea of a boy group with 40 members.

Fear not! Lee Soo Man has thought of everything! eh it’s not like that happens often . The group will debut by sub-unit, not as a whole. Meaning, all members are divided in sub-units from the start. That’s where NCT U comes from, these six boys are only a sub-unit of this much bigger group. From what I’ve learned in every website, blog, vlog and fan account, though the group has 40 members at the moment, the idea is to add more as time passes if the group turns out to be successful.

With that in mind… things aren’t looking good for us, fangirls. Successful? If there’s something I’m sure these boys will be surrounded by is success. All I needed to deduce that was NCT U’s first MV and a couple videos from the SM Rookies show. They’ve got the talent and they’ve got the looks. What else is needed?

Knowing SM Entertainment, I was already expecting an awesome track for their debut, but The 7th Sense literally blew me away. The song might be incredibly simple but it is also incredibly good. The choreography looks flawless aswell and I’m very excited to see their live stages. The MV was a huge truck of aesthetic and pops of colors. I LOVED IT

NCT U’s debut consists of two digital singles – another single will be released tomorrow (10th of April) for the song Without You, this time sub-unit leader Taeil will be featured! – he wasn’t on The 7th Sense. Don’t forget to check that out tomorrow!

I’m super excited to see what’s going to come out of this new project and I shamelessly admit I’m already staning them and possibly biased Ten…

What did you think of NCT U?

p.s.- uhh I don’t know much but I believe there have been some issues regarding member Taeyong in the past… I don’t want to get into details nor defend him nor anything like that. Anyhow, everyone makes mistakes and has the right to regret them so how bad could it be to give him a second chance? And even if you don’t want to, at least be here for the music. Even if you can’t accept certain things, it’s not wrong to accept their talent (ɔ◔‿◔)ɔ ♥

NCT U DEBUTS!

GOT7’S “FLY” COMEBACK

YASSSSSSSSSSSS I WAS SO READY FOR THIS COMEBACK YALL HAVE NO IDEA THERES SO MANY STUFF TO TALK ABOUT REGARDING THIS IS2G OMFGFHDHJGUHJ

though at 15h05 i had completely forgotten it came out at 15h00 (blame the stupid timezones) if it wasn’t for my girls on our group chat haha.

I’ll start with the trailer and, with that, being bery honest. The trailer was pretty interesting and a lot of fun to watch, though it got quite weird and random when they all suddenly started flying around and by the time Junior was jumping off that building I had already lost track of what the hell had happened. It was confusing to the point that I kept wondering about the concept and kind of forgot about the tittle track itself and, when I realized that, my expectations for the title track unvoluntarily lowered. hOWEVER, they rose up right after that teaser video, oh, yes. And just now, a couple hours after the music video came out, I’m a proud fan who admits, once again, GOT7 exceeded my expectations. The song is honestly sosososo good and perfectly brings back GOT7’s fresh and hip hop-ish image that was kind of put aside after the past couple comebacks.

TBH IM STILL TRYING T PROCESS HOW GOOD THAT SONG AND THAT CHOREO WERE ITS STILL HARD FOR ME TO DESCRIBE IT SO YALL BETTER JUST GOT WATCH IT HONESTLY

As for the music video… Truth is I was so dazed when I watched it the first time I didn’t really pay attention to what was happening and it seemed quite simple and plain, you know, a few scenes of them flying and the rest was just them dancing… But it’s not really that simple. After watching the music video, the trailer starts to make some sense and we actually come to realize there’s a story behind this concept.

Shit.

That’s when shit gets real.

Sorry but… it is.

If we look closely we can notice that something is going on with Junior that makes him stand out from the others, like he’s in another dimension or something…

HOLD ON, I’VE SEEN THIS BEFORE

AM I THINKING WHAT YOU ARE THINKING

a1b9c12484ad0bbe6999e8cdaed30ab3b4e1fba0_hq

OH NO, NOT THIS AGAIN

The one-alive-the-rest-are-dead concept is back to haunt us. WHY MUST THEY BE LIKE THIS IM SO ಥ_ಥ

At least that’s what it looks like to me… I’ve also seen a bunch of people on Twitter commenting the same. Basically, the behind story goes like this: all of them died (yanno when you see them flying and all) except for Junior but then when we see him jumping, that’s him trying to go to his friends. There are also those scenes where we see Jackson filming that add up to the theory. Woah, things just got really depressing for such an upbeat song. Dammit. wHY MUST MY IDOLS DO THIS.

Regarding the choreography, I don’t really know what to say yet. It seems pretty good but I need a dance practice or performance video or a live performance oR WHATEVER TO GET A BETTER LOOK AT IT. Meanwhile, we shall apreciate the amount of hip thrusts on the music video. Sorry not sorry.

ALSO I CANT LET MARK AND YUGYEOM’S RAP SLIDE HOLY SHGKIUFJ I SWEAR IT SAVED KPOP YALL I CANT EVEN RN ALL HAIL THIS GIVEN I AM SO OVERWHELMED

The album isn’t on sale yet – at least not in Portugal – so I wasn’t able to listen to those snipets on iTunes but that’s what the album spoiler is for, right? Click here if you haven’t heard the album spoiler!

It’s kind of hard to tell like this which songs are my favorites and which aren’t but listening to this, the ones that caught my attention the most were Can’tSee The LightRewind and Home Run – wHICH BTW WE MUST LOOK OUT FOR BC I WAS CONFUSED WHEN IT SAID ‘TITLE’ NEXT TO THE SONG’S NAME ON THE ALBUM SPOILER VIDEO SO THAT MEANS THERE WILL BE TWO TITLE TRACKS HOLY HSIHUFYGHUK

Alright, this is my take on GOT7’s most recent comeback! I hope I didn’t overreact too much I don’t want ya’ll to feel annoyed, I promise I tried to contain myself as much as possible…

HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE~~ (✿◠‿◠)
