ANS – Say My Name: MV Review

As Taeyeon’s “Spark” has no views, I will not review anymore Taeyeon’s “Dear Me”.

Also, this will be the last time we give incentives for vids uploaded to 1theK.


As a way of helping underrated groups, we will touch again on ANS, with their song Say My Name. For a bit of info, after releasing their oft-repeated song Boom Boom, they added two additional members.

At a first glance, this reminds us of ATEEZ with the same title. And by the way, we have included their two songs in our misheard lyrics. Would they have considered points for improvement? We’ll see here.

Their reference to the debut track is still there at the song’s onset. Structure of song holds some similarities with Everglow’s Adios.

A considerable improvement can be gleaned on dances, which they got it simple and mature. As for music, Say My Name starts with whistling tune. Outfits (at 0:05) are also being given emphasis. These things ANS shares similarities with Everglow. To add, they got it further with their double raps, which sustain the song throughout.

At the end of the MV, another member steps in. It seems that ANS is still giving us surprise new members. This is something you won’t see in other groups.

ANS – Boom Boom (붐붐): MV Review

For our another review, we will feature new group called ANS, with their song Boom Boom.

From the title itself, we are bombarded with endless Boom Booms in K-Pop today. In fact, I always think of the famous line everytime I hear the title. We’ll see if the strategy of clinging to MLD’s Bboom Bboom will work for them later in the sea of K-Pop. Let’s start!

The storyline is fairly simple enough, starting with the girl waiting at the top of the building, while the other five are busy in different ventures. As time passes, the other five heard a call and approached the girl, where they unite. It ends with them going together, only to be startled by seeing another female who went outside the car. That calls for a sequel of their MV.

While the moral lesson is quite hazy, viewers will benefit on how to make-up (1:15 – 1:17), on welding (1:31 – 1:32), take photographs (1:33 – 1:40), playing drums (1:41 – 1:46), playing sports (2:05 – 2:19), and art (2:38).

Review by others

TheBiasList described 2019 as year of rookies. They set a standard so high, that even ANS find it hard to surpass. And as expected, the song is generic. Vocals and raps are fine. However, disappointing aspects were on “tropical beats” and never-thought melodies. It’s as if they tried to inject tropical music this autumn.

Review as whole

This is more of a performance-type music, just like BVNDIT’s Dramatic.

At first glance, they are trying to follow Momoland’s footsteps. This is very apparent in their title, and on outfits similar to I’m So Hot.

On music, ANS started with the rock type, and portrayed themselves in different ventures afterwards with the usual music. The rock music returns after their performance ends.

Their dance steps are very easy, and just like other MV, they always use dark settings. What else outstanding do we have to say, since they haven’t introduced new concepts?

As what a reviewer would tell, they have to innovate on their own. Clinging to the famous, overused title won’t guarantee success for ANS. Aside from that, they have to do brainstorming. This will help them plan on how to stand out.
