For our another review, we will also focus on boygroup TRCNG, in their lead track called MISSING.
Looking upon the title, it implies that something’s missing. So, the question is: What do they miss? Let’s see here as we review them:
Story tells of members crying as they realize that they are alone. Upon meeting each other, they are now happy.
While I find one point lacking on dance, the dance on finale was their easiest move.
Moral lesson that can be seen here is on friendships and value of it (3:26 – 3:28, 3:34). Viewers will benefit from them as they feature studying in a classroom (0:50 – 0:58) and eating fruits (1:44 – 1:49)
Review by others
KPopReviewed noted that the only thing that stands out was on their mature side. Vocals and dances were fine, but the most memorable is the pleasing and cohesive chorus. They defined well the story, with strong sense of friendship throughout. Only major not-so-good point was on outfits.
TheBiasList praised the group in fusing old and new concepts, with EDM following arrangement at par with second-gen tracks. The song has impact, especially for the chorus, and allows the members to shine. It finaly suggested that for rest of August tracks, K-Pop should follow TRCNG’s lead.
Review as whole
I was impressed on how clear they presented the storyline well. Aside from that, they start it with exciting tones, though they express sadness of not being together.
Some things might be noticed here. A watch featured at 1:01 represents time that they cherish, and dribbling ball (0:58, 1:03 – 1:05) tells that their life is a cycle. Putting up together, they want to tell us that they cherish every moment, regardless of the journey they made.
Similarities are apparent in this MV. The dark themes and jumping in the building shares similarities with Stray Kids in their song Miroh. The alley at 2:26 – 2:32 (seen above) shares similarities with 1THE9’s Spotlight. The sign shown in fence at 2:13 (and seen above) recalls that of EXID’s Me&You.
