“쉽게 열리지는 않을 거야.”

“Knock Knock” by Twice | Twice is the K-pop group you begrudgingly accept. No matter how mediocre their songs are – I’m still of the opinion that “Like Ooh-Ahh” is their best – you have to accept that they will dominate the charts, stay on the top for weeks, defying usual chart behavior, where songs gently (or suddenly) go down after hitting their peak position for a week or two. At least “Knock Knock” isn’t as annoying as “TT”, but you just know you’ve heard better, even from the group themselves. And yet their success is so undeniable that other girl groups have decided to transition their images to Twice’s bright, preppy one. gugudan’s “A Girl Like Me” has similar imagery, but more noteworthy is Lovelyz’s “WoW!” – they have done relatively powerful yet mostly innocent songs to this point, but now they’ve sort of haphazardly put Twice’s clubbiness over their landmark song “Destiny”. Shalla’s gone so far as describing it as their “Marionette” moment. It’s awkward to see them attempt to turn their bodies into props like Twice do so well, but at least they have much better vocalists. But, perhaps, the one act Twice has banished into limbo is Red Velvet. Don’t get me started… [NB]
