Rania's latest single is a promo CF song for some resort in Korea, so my expectations going in weren't that high. Especially when they decided to release it for free as a gift to the fans. While the motion is appreciated, that doesn't bode too well for the song quality if the management didn't think it would be able to sell. In any case, the MV essentially boils down to just dancing and frolicking. But then again, that's not necessarily a bad thing. You have to remember that this is a CF song for a resort. A water resort. Meaning swimwear. Meaning Rania in swimwear.
As such, the MV is understandably heavy on the fanservice and easy on the eyes. The dance, while uninspired and obviously just cobbled together to meet a sudden need for choreography, does have its moments.
Unlike a certain other dance routine from a recently reviewed MV.
|If I have to spell it out any more for you, this probably isn't the MV for you.|
|Bring back the swaglean.|
|Told you it was pretty basic.|
|I will give them credit for this bit of twerkin' though. Not many girl groups can|
attest to that kind of choreo.
|No one's been this blatant in a while. At least the 94'ers are legal in Korea|
now, or this woulda been bad. (Not.)
|"Di" is the one in the purple bikini top and studded white shorts.|
(4 if you're counting from left to right.)
("Di" is on the far right. Duh.)
|NAE MA EUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM|
(Google translate tells me that's the romanization of 내 마음, or "MY HEAAAAAART")
|Like wat. Who would actually believe attractive girls in their sane, rational minds would|
EVER go frolic in the snow dressed in sports bras? How did that ever get through??
I'm sure many of you will question my ears, but I think it even holds up to the "mainstream" normal shit that the idolverse has been pumping out lately. Not that it says much to be better than say the 4Minute track, or the 2NE1 one (both of whose names escape me right now), but still. Pretty good for my favorite nugus.
TL;DR: Feel good viewing experience of girls in bikinis frolicking to a feel-good summer clubbin' jam.

I give this MV a 3.5 out of 5, with an extra 0.25 for the visual aspect. ;D
