Among Bruce Lee's many quotes, there is one quote that really hits the spot when defining A Pink's latest comeback. "It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential."
I think it's fair to say that Yoo Kyung was A Pink's Hyoyeon or Bom. However, unlike those two, Yoo Kyung has absolutely nothing to offer to the group, unless random English lines without a thick accent count as something.
The next unessential element that A Pink hacked away at is Fat Chorong's fat. While she is not fat in normal terms, she has the appearance of being a bit chubby, hence why people call her Fat Chorong. Even though Eunji is my favorite member, I have always found Chorong the best looking. Now with Naeun's new Latino look, Chorong has cemented her position for me.
Onto the song, A Cube made the right choice to keep A Pink's original style. A Pink's sound is reminiscent of late 90s to mid 2000s Kpop when Kpop was at its peak. I always fear that A Pink will abandon that sound to release some diarrhea like I Got A Boy. God, I fucking hate that song. Nonono is a modern take on a formula that works, and I'll take a refinement of what works over fucking "innovative but complete shit" that seems to be the trend.
However, I do have one problem with the song. Why does Naeun sing the first part of the bridge? The bridge should be left to Namjoo and Eunji, not some scrub like Naeun.
I was prepared to like this song just because Yoo Kyung was no longer in the group, but I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
