For the first time, we will feature another underrated K-Pop group called Honey Popcorn, with their song De–aeseohsta.
For those who hear the group’s name for the first time, one might think that they are tasty. Would it be the case on their performance? We’ll see in this review:
Storyline tells of the girls who are slouching, finding their place as boring. As one member peeks outside the window, they look upon reflection of themselves. There they get things that make them happy. They posed as Midas where everything they touched becomes colorful. The girls from outside the window throw balls at the other side of room. The play theme is consistently featured in the video.
Some moral lessons can be seen in this video. First is on bringing color to each other’s lives, and finally on seeking things that will make one happy and enjoy with. While I don’t see anything funny in the video, they made a good deal featuring the whole room as play station. Somehow, this will give viewers idea on things that they might play on.
Review as whole
They played the color well to describe their emotions. They also made great move having dual settings – playroom and hall-like – so as not to bore us. I find the whole MV very cute, from settings to their reactions. The sparkling and bubbling music present complements the rooms and color tone used. Outstanding member for me is Yua, as I find her very cute on the way she acts.
The only thing that’s bit awkward is on the title itself. Why? If “De-aeseohsta” has no definite meaning, they should have defined it as a spell or chant in their YouTube page. Or improvise a magic-like word, just like what Red Velvet’s Zimzalabim did.
Noticeable is on the girls throwing pink balls at the end of MV, sharing concept from SATURDAY in their song WiFi.
Review by others
TheBiasList lost words as it tries to discuss what the music is all about. Positive point was on the “refined energy” that combines the vibes of Apink and GFRIEND.
While this music was “stronger” than its previous track, it’s forgettable once it is stopped playing. Added to that was the lack of ability to elicit attention, and lack of sense of identity for it to stand out with the rest.
