Rating K-Pop Groups 2019: Other Groups (CLC, AOA, MAMAMOO, Momoland, SATURDAY)

(Side Note: In rating select groups, primary objective is to assess the groups’ responses and attitude of its members. These are crucial also for their survival, profitability, and reputation.

Groups who are not mentioned here and in related articles are presumed to garner 85.00% rating, or “Satisfactory”, unless otherwise stated.)


CLC

They are giving their best when it comes to lyric making. In fact, Yeeun took part in writing songs for their group, notably No, Me, and Devil. With regards to other projects, Yeeun tried her stint as MC in The Show, and that’s okay.

Seungyeon’s response over an issue with her is quite amazing. After news that she was beaten broke out, she immediately clarified what actually happened.

As for Sorn, since the racism issue broke out on her livecast, she instantly apologized to fans and viewers who’ve might hurt on the video. Immediate responses are important so as to clarify issues that might be misinterpreted.

AOA

Very pleased with Seolhyun’s attitude of handling commitments. Despite being in drama, still she manages to perform with the group in Queendom and in their recent New Moon comeback. This shows how special AOA is for her.

Jimin’s love and commitment with the group is equally notable. In fact, this attitude spilled towards Celeb Five’s members, helping them till 4:00 in morning for the latter’s debut.

Meanwhile, I am not happy with Mina leaving the group to focus on her own career. Think of a member who left the group during times of crisis. She should’ve looked at Seolhyun, who remained even if she ventured in acting.

While the future of the group remains unsure, the remaining five are working to solve this dilemma by joining Queendom. To add, they still retain the trust and mutual respect. Hope this will be a good start.

Because of their outstanding attitude, they will also be given five extra points for every comeback they made, regardless of their absences or hiatus.

On attitude, Moonbyul plays it the best. She was considerate in putting up (G)I-DLE’s name when no one dared to do so, saving the latter from penalty of not attending. To add, she complimented AOA on their Queendom performance.

Momoland

During the time I was a Merry, I could not help but ask why the group’s downturn was so sudden.

Problems

Sorry for this. Their major problem is on attendance, especially that they are given rare chances to do so overseas. This is noticeable on the group every time they appear on TV shows. Secondary is on health issues. Third is on lack of regard for fellow members, which should’ve bind them for so long.

Meanwhile, Dabin consistently made excuses not attending concerts and fanmeets. I find Dabin’s excuses still not too convincing, since other stars can handle both commitments without any problems, like Eunwoo, Seolhyun, and IU. (Take the case where she is always missing in PH TV shows due to these things.)

Why venture into drama if she still has health issues? And if she can work, why prioritize it instead of helping her fellow members? This is a kind of attitude you won’t see in other groups.

Changes

We have discussed several times these points so that they improve their attitude. But with Momoland (and the agency) still not listening, we have to seek stricter measures in reviews and dealings. This we will do in the coming years, just to be fair to other groups.

The author made some changes on treatment with the group, from being the most favorite to the least. But with Taeha and Dabin leaving the group, no choice but to unfollow them. And strike the group out of my bias list forever. Again, it does not make sense following them anymore with these kinds of attitude.

SATURDAY

While their agency’s future is promising, reverse happens to the group.

The future of the group is very bleak, even if the agency is very responsive to the group’s challenges. We can be sure of this due to frequent turnovers this year. In fact, we are down with three original members (Ayeon, Yuki, and Haneul) from seven last year.

The members, particularly those who left, lacked sense of direction, which would’ve kept them intact for long. Sunha left due to desire for career change, and yet, she hasn’t started any. It’s also not helping that Chohee and Sion are silent on reason why they left agency. This would help clarify issues, and give their biased-fans time to cope with it.

While the group as a whole will last, the major issue would be on the members themselves, being prone to turnovers. If the members will not hold on and continue their dream, the group might disband without the agency’s fault.

Rating K-Pop Agencies 2019: Part One (CUBE, Pledis, FNC, Source Music, SD, WM, Woollim)

(Side Note: In rating agencies, primary objective is to evaluate agencies’ responses to various issues. Responses are a crucial ingredient for agencies’ and groups’ survival, fame, and profitability.

To a lesser extent, financial aspects might be tackled, but will not be a major factor in rating them.)


CUBE Entertainment

What was once thought of as sidestepping girl group over other, turned to be a back-to-back girl groups’ success for the agency. These moves earned fruitful results, as CLC earned a spot on Billboard’s Social 50 charts. As for (G)I-DLE, they are now on the way for US promotions, plus their status improved upon joining Queendom.

CUBE Entertainment encourages creativity, and that is the value most apparent in them. In fact, CLC’s Yeeun participated in composing lyrics of their songs No, Me, and Devil. Even (G)I-DLE’s Soyeon took part for No. It even provided a soft comeback for the latter group to help them shine further.

Another positive aspect noted is on their consistent scheduling for CLC and (G)I-DLE. As revealed by a VLive, the latter is slated to release its track on January next year, and CLC on March. This will be an added point for them.

While the response to E’Dawn and HyunA was not impressive, it mattered a little. In fact, PENTAGON still has its regular comebacks and promotions, just like PRISM world tours in Americas and Europe. And the agency kept Universes updated on group’s travel status following the flight mishap. Most important is on letting injured members like Kino and Yanan take rest.

For its long-term success, it might be helpful for them to tolerate dating scandals or give positive response. Another suggestion would be for them to create another boy group. They also have to strategize on how to make PENTAGON and CLC stand out further. Finally, on engaging more members to be composers at the same time.

PLEDIS Entertainment

The agency has been confident on SEVENTEEN as its flagship group. In fact, it succeeded in eliciting attention to the group via comebacks, ending in a bang with Hit, and still releasing another new one with Fear. This is on top of issuing statements on health of S.Coups.

Meanwhile, promotions for NU’EST are also being done, and it’s good that they are promoting it in many countries. Despite rigging allegations, their involvement in Produce series helped to promote Nu’est better.

These kinds of engagements rebound well, as reflected in album sales. It would’ve challenged the Big 3 today in terms of being leader. But it has another major problem.

The worst part is on handling girl groups. Recently, Pristin took up what After School left off, without any activities for this year. Its member Rena (Yaebin) once recalled that the group “was working with an album” till they were ordered to disband. Essentially, Pledis wasted opportunities to make the most out of this girl group.

While the agency’s advice to Kyla and her health was the best decision, still they did not make it up for this year with remaining members. This is apparent with Kyla’s clarifications on this issue.

Kyulkyung and Nayoung both hail from I.O.I and Pristin. With both groups disbanded, and because Nayoung was tired of joining groups that disband over and over, she decided to be a soloist in other agency. Four members who left later signed with new agency and re-debuted as Hinapia. And as of this writing, Xiyeon is currently battling depression primarily due to this scenario.

It’s time for Pledis to revamp the way they handle girl groups. Otherwise, this aspect will be their Achilles’ heel once they plan to expand.

FNC Entertainment

The year 2019 has been a half-half for FNC Entertainment: half-successful, half-failed as a whole. It failed somewhat on handling groups on hiatus and handling issues with Cherry Bullet. Meanwhile, they succeeded in some aspects, such as handling of Burning Sun issue, promoting AOA via Queendom, and giving N.Flying opportunities to shine via lead song Rooftop.

Negatives

Minor problem is on not giving necessary solo debuts for remaining CNBlue members. While Japanese versions of these are in place, it can’t be strictly considered as such.

In addition, their silence on disappearance of Cherry Bullet’s Kokoro and Linlin (plus Mirae) makes matters worse. They only issued statement upon their departure. In the past months, the group adjusts choreography with remaining members. That alone signals something is wrong with the rookie group, yet FNC is not solving this problem.

These things reflect their being unprofessional when it comes to groups like this, similar to what MLD Ent is doing. Better for FNC not to debut another group.

Finally, another hurdle is on FTIsland, especially with Jonghoon’s departure and Hongki joining the military. How will the agency restructure the band to keep it running? We’ll have to see it next year.

Positives

On the other hand, positive aspects need to be mentioned. First, it’s pleasing that FNC promotes N.Flying by giving three lead tracks and fanmeets overseas. They just have to promote it and SF9 further, as they have greater potentials.

Finally, they are renewing contract with AOA and keeping us updated, especially with the group joining Queendom. This sparked public’s interest in them being an eight-member group, and this helped them regain popularity. Quite interesting, since we might expect some developments after their sole comeback. Hope this will be turning point for all members to reunite.

Source Music

Source Music has been home to its sole group GFRIEND. Just like BigHit, it’s amazing that they are steering clear of any issues against the group.

Added to that was the agency’s consistent promotions through the tagline “Go, Go, Gfriend,” a concert tour of the group across Asia.

While no negative remarks against them are reported, the major challenge today is on how to market the group against other more famous rookie and old ones. This is an aspect they have to improve as Gfriend is still lagging behind in terms of overall group popularity index.

It being purchased by BigHit is now offering opportunities for Source Music to expand its lineup and establish international linkages. We’ll see what they can do in the coming years.

SD Entertainment

SD Entertainment is home to its sole group SATURDAY. Although the agency itself is not yet famous, this has the greatest potential to succeed someday. This year, they are one of the most responsive agencies. Big and small agencies can learn something from them.

First is on its clearly-defined succession plan, completely absent in other agencies. When Chaewon left SATURDAY last year to focus on studies, Juyeon filled the void last January. Next is Sunha, who left last March to find another career, and afterwards Minseo was picked. This August, Chohee and Sion left. While remotely possible, expect the agency to pick additional two members.

Second is on its efforts to provide another comeback for the group. In fact, it assigned MakeStar to facilitate this purpose. It’s as if SD Entertainment says to us, “Want comeback? Fund us and then we’ll provide new one.” As of September they reached their target amount, and are on its way for a second appearance.

Finally, they make necessary adjustments on choreography upon change of members. This is the case when the group adjusted WiFi’s choreo upon Sunha’s departure.

The agency’s formula of borrowing concepts from other stars, and stable succession plan will put Saturday on radar alongside other famous K-Pop groups. If they decide to retain the cute concept, one of their songs someday will be a bop and be famous internationally.

SD Entertainment’s efforts bear good results. And here’s another good news: the branding index for a month lists their group as one of the 50 most famous in Korea.

Some things must be improved here. As they expand internationally, they have to translate most of their posts in English. This will be a lot of help to reach out to fans. Second is on consistent uploading to 1theK, as this is the point where their song WiFi became famous. Finally, their group has to involve themselves in various shows like Queendom and Masked Singer.

WM Entertainment

As to ONF, we have to see some developments on promotions. Despite being in the scene for three years, they are tagged as underrated. WM has to improve on this.

WM had its best shot on Oh My Girl, with its two lead tracks being streamed more. In fact, the group even managed to bag music awards, and Koreans gave favorable responses on their music.

The agency even apologized for lack of immediate response on Jiho’s health issues, and pledged to update fans with her health status. It helped also that they permitted the group to join Queendom. This resulted in Oh My Girl being recognized as one of the most famous girl groups this year, and helped a lot for them to discover new concepts.

Woollim Entertainment

As of this writing, INFINITE is still inactive, not to mention Woohyun enlisting in the military. Woollim also has to push through in giving Golden Child necessary promotions.

With regards to girl groups, they are at their best. Consider Lovelyz, who are being given chance to shine this year through a single promotion, letting them join in Queendom, and giving solo debuts for Babysoul and Kei. Also, they started adding new group called Rocket Punch, and are aggressively promoting it. This signals their readiness to expand with different approaches.

Another positive development was on malicious comments. As stated by the agency, they are continuously pressing charges against those who do. That alone is a very positive step to protect the mental health of their artists.

CLC (씨엘씨) – Devil: MV Review

This time, we will feature again CLC, with their new song called Devil.

This will be the third comeback this year, and I am very pleased that they are catching up. Now that they are giving us something new, will this suit the author’s personal tastes? Let’s start!

(Side Note: Notice that CLC and (G)I-DLE follow the same pattern of releasing their MVs. So, expect another (G)I-DLE comeback by October.)

The storyline starts with girls in a table, sharing meals together. While at first it seems fine dining with each other, they are later trying to stab each other at the back.

So far, the moral lesson that can be grasped here is not to test other’s patience, or abuse their kindness. They supposedly wanted to show us that they “tried to be so polite,” but push them to the limits, where we can see their devilish side. Meanwhile, viewers will be taught to fix busted lights (0:40), play darts (0:44), and eat cereals (0:34).

Review by others

TheBiasList observed that the group returned back to “bright, addictive” concept. The musical palette being used helped keep the song stand out. What’s notable is on drawing music from the 50s, giving fresh start for the tunes and music as whole.

The rap was correctly placed where the rest of the song breathes, and its “sly” pre-chorus surprises us with new kind of build-ups. The blogger wanted more of it, but it’s a good start.

KPopReviewed noted that the group made so many comebacks this year. For positives, it was also “colorful and upbeat”, complementing it with their mature sounds. Overall, this was a great track.

Review as whole

They steered away from the badass, feministic concept that once defined them. This is a bit good, challenging them to be versatile. This move also lets them offer something new to Cheshires and other K-Pop fans.

Foremost is on adding funny scenes, absent in No and Me. They rendered it in a way that is not provocative, but enough to lift our moods. Funny scenes revolve more on “stabbing” each other, at 1:14 – 1:17, 1:22 – 1:24, 1:27 – 1:30, and at 1:35 – 1:37. Added funny scene was that of Seungyeon at 0:32, when about to be caught red-handed, pretended to eat the soap.

Second is on reintroducing the colorful bop performance, harking back to their special song No Oh Oh.

Finally, I find Yeeun’s raps quite modest. Maybe she toned it down to fit what’s required when doing happy bops like this. That’s okay.

Like, dislike

The only thing I personally disliked was on featuring horror (at 2:02 till end of video). I would prefer to cut this out, and this is they must improve next time.

Personally my most favorite tune is at interlude (2:18 – 2:30), where their bop tune at that point is very pleasing to ears. The members that stood out were Yeeun, still on her raps, and Elkie, when it comes to vocals and the way she acts.

Other netizens commented that CLC’s Devil reminds them of Red Velvet’s Russian Roulette. And similarities like revenge and bop-filled themes can be gleaned between the two songs.

CLC (씨엘씨) – ME (美): (MV Review)

For our next video review, we will feature for the first time CLC.

I only knew the group when they featured their song “NO” for this year. Their title was quite funny, as some commented that it was their response to TWICE’s “Yes or Yes.” I illustrated how these two songs fit together in my recent misheard lyric.

After their modest success in their first song, here comes the new lead song called “ME”. From the title itself, we can see the difference. Instead of displaying the Chinese character for “me,” (我) they chose to feature a different character (美).

The Chinese character means “beauty”. It was the same word being used as Chinese name for the United States (美国,literally “Beautiful Country”). This song continues to define their own version of beauty. But anyway, would they retain the momentum they had with their previous song “No”? The answer must be Yes or Yes. Haha. But you may enjoy first their MV before reviewing them.


Storyline

  1. Video must have a storyline – 5 points

While I haven’t understood clearly their storyline, they provided the same for their video in the description.

1theK, in its official YouTube page, provided a storyline on the MV:

CLC, who gave a strong impact to the public through “No” with the band’s confident and charismatic performance on January, tries to perfectly position themselves with new song “ME (美)”. CLC’s new song “ME (美)” refers to the theme of ‘beautiful me’ using the English word ‘Me’ and the same pronunciation of Chinese character ’ meaning beauty, in a whimsical way. This song with the strong sound and beat as well as the strongly addictive refrain that reverses as the song proceeds shows CLC’s confident fascination to captivate everyone with their individuality and beauty.

  1. Theme must be consistent and clear – 5 points

The group featured consistenly the art and the crowded spaces concept. Also, their theme revolves on their definition of beauty.

Lessons

  1. Moral lesson must be clearly stated – 5 points

From what we can see in the whole video, they try to impart confidence. This is needed, especially when dealing with so many people.

Another moral lesson that might not be noticed is on different views when it comes to beauty. Somehow, the goat painted in white and black represents one painted (viewed) as beautiful while the other one has not. This might tell us on how to handle situations like these.

(And actually, beauty standards in Korea, though quite believable, are not gospel truth. CLC perfectly defined this lesson in “No” and this song: “I’m beautiful since I was born”/”태어날 때부터 아름다움” )

  1. They must impart something beneficial for their viewers – 5 points

With many people using gadgets to play games, somehow they will tell viewers to try traditional games like this domino. This is featured at 2:38.

Other Matters

  1. Inject sense of humor in the music video – 6 points

At 1:40, a member tries to put out fire by blowing instead of using fire extinguishers. Maybe she has powers to put out these?

Other than that, I did not see other funny scenes in the video.

  1. Ability of the song to make it to mainstream media – 3 points

I gave this rating, as I am not certain this will make it to radio and TV.

  1. Review by other sites – 4 points

TheBiasList contrasted CLC’s previous song with this one, noting the latter as a “diminished” version of them. This can also be compared with 4Minute’s “Hate”, particularly on the music.

Positive remarks were on the instrumentals, particularly on the percussions and “beat drops”, which goes together with their voices on the last seconds.

Negative points include their beat drop which was more than noisy, and focuses less on substance. The blogger also was not impressed with the song, and that the verses are bound to be forgotten. The song was also simplified to the point that it does not jive with various songs playing in the background.

KPopReviewed was excited on the group’s comeback, noting that they sticked to the “edgy” genre which made them known. This time, they matured on this specialty.

The most “memorable” part is on the instrumentals being played on the chorus, reminding also of 4Minute’s song. This is also a “wake-up call” in its own right, since the beats are quite “explosive”. He/she also liked their hooks and vocal sections, and noted that it would further stand out had they included thicker raps in the music. Meanwhile, the red stroke of paint was the best, as though simple, it speaks much.

Negative points were on the blandness of the song, which does not reflect the intense feeling they want to show. It was also not “edgy,” especially if we will listen to their acapellas. It lacks the sensual side of their choreography unlike their previous songs like “NO” or “Black Dress”.

  1. Review of the music video as a whole – 5 points

Like what we discussed, they described the beauty as two faced, as seen on a goat in black and white. Being destroyed signifies that the days of defining what is and what is not beautiful are over.

On the visuals, I understand that they are featuring different aspects of beauty. However, this doesn’t have a coherent storyline. In fact, I haven’t understand as of this moment why they have to feature red paint. Maybe it represents the red lipstick?

I might agree with other reviewers. The song had less impact for me, unlike their song “No”. While the song has repeatedly stuck on my head, I doubt if this will be the case on “Me”.

Aside from that, it seems that Seungyeon gave way for her other members to stand out, especially on vocals. This is apparently the case if you compare her performance with that of “No”.

Most outstanding members for me were Sorn, who maintained her confidence in the two vids,…

…and another one is Yeeun, who lately caught my attention at 3:22. I also felt attracted to the latter, albeit with short hair, after watching her as emcee in MTV’s “The Show.”

On the outfits, I have to rate it at four points, as it was quite revealing. This can be seen at the start of the video. Meanwhile, one point lacking was on their music not being exciting enough. Three points for music since it was deafening. Four points are given on the dance being easily understood, since the difficult dance revolves on 2:20 – 2:24.

  1. Other factors
  • Features special effects – 5 points

Look at 3:06, where a member tips down dominoes to feature their title.

  • Shares concepts with other groups – 5 points

The dark room concept (2:32) is shared with Dreamcatcher in their song Piri.

TweetNewscaster’s Overall Rating: 85.22%

Final Words

CLC’s latest performance in MTV’s “The Show” convinced me to revise my original rating upward.

The song is not bad enough. On a personal note, I also liked their daring moves and their execution of choreography. I see that they are more confident doing it unlike their previous song.

Since they released the song “ME,” I made a running joke about it.

CLC: Me?

Also CLC: No.

Some points need to be improved here. This is more on defining the storyline and simplifying their dances. Except for these, they made a good choice on positioning themselves to the genre they want. It is hoped that the review will let them take it as a challenge to outdo themselves every comeback.
