At this point, I am considering limiting MV Reviews for December releases. This is to focus on misheard lyrics, and year-end write-ups on K-Pop.
We are now up with a special release of (G)I-DLE in their song Lion. For a bit of info, this is a soft comeback that was given a music video. To add, the song was their final piece in Queendom.
We will touch on the group as it has proper MV, and since this serves as their memorabilia of engagements with the show. Being a new Neverland, how will the author rate the group? Let’s see:
(Side Note: At this point, I am also stanning (G)I-DLE, with Soojin as my ultimate bias, and Soyeon to be my bias wrecker.)
The storyline best speaks of the girls performing as lions, with such attributes. For instance, Soyeon got wild inside jail, Soojin shows her claw marks at the back, and Miyeon showing her claws.
Being the king of the jungle, the lion takes the lead by showing its being wild and fierce, something the group wants to tell us. Soyeon mostly exemplifies this by posing wild in an iron jail.
Review as whole
The final moment defined the group as queens in full regalia. To add, they all wear crowns starting from Minnie.
(G)I-DLE is maturing at this point. The buildup can be heard abruptly starting at the first verse. Soyeon’s lines were progressive, but short to garner attention. While the final chorus would seem to end abruptly, Soojin’s lines ends the song, which give a definite finish. The only improvement would be on “baa baa baa”(?), which should’ve been replaced with lyrics related to roar.
Meanwhile, I am impressed with Shuhua gaining more lines. It can be remembered that this was our issue raised on Senorita and Uh-Oh.
The author earlier emphasized how Cube is consistent on schedules. Cube releases first CLC’s comeback, followed by that of (G)I-DLE one month after. Though expected comeback is October (as CLC released Devil on September), it pushed a month further. It’s understandable since they are joining Queendom at that time.
Review by others
TheBiasList noted that the group got its “bluesy” appeal. Music takes a proper build-up of percussions which opens the chorus. Not to mention the lack of traps that plague most of K-Pop discography. The only concern would be on longevity of the track.
