TEEN TEEN – It’s On You (책임져요): MV Review

We will review another rookie group, this time with TEEN TEEN in their song It’s On You.

As what I commented earlier, I haven’t found something worth remembering from this. Let’s discuss first what’s in it before I give a joke on that:

The storyline starts with the boys maneuvering the airplane. On the other side, some boys pulled a string. These all they made to reach their destination, that is, on other planet.

Funny scene is on 1:08 – 1:09, where a boy shoots a ball, to be dropped to other boy. Look at the latter’s reactions. For the first time, a boy group features this. The scene is quite similar to Honey Popcorn, where a member shoots balls to the other side.

Review as whole

Journey and airplane themes were used throughout the video, and their dances are very simple. They are also teaching the value of journey, and sparks interest for us to travel via airplanes.

Teen Teen features airplane and hot-air balloon (2:03 – 2:04), which tells of them flying high. In addition, they made use of special effects on flying shapes and pink clouds. These things are pronounced on 2:51 – 2:52 and 2:59.

As to the music, the twinkling tune can be heard at start of music, then proceeds to stagey tune. The end displays blobbing tune. These things lacked enough energy for me to be excited, albeit being excited on the colorful visuals.

Joketime

The name’s quite unimaginative. At first glance, this reminds me of a song from TWICE:

I’m like TEEN TEEN
Just like TEEN TEEN
Tell me that you’ll be my baby

Or that of another song from SEVENTEEN:

SEVENTEEN TEEN TEEN
Know one now, PSY, yeah!
Come on, come on, come on!
Noona bae is so dope…

Another commenter told that this reminds him of Teen Titans Go.

Review by others

TheBiasList made a good assessment of Produce 101 groups, like that of Teen Teen. The group starts itself with “bright niche”, and it’s okay. He favors the synthetic intro, which should lead the way all to the end. Outstanding part was the chorus which keeps the song together.

Their sing-song performance did not do well with the half-baked, lackluster melodies. Regardless, he is okay with these kind of concepts.
