Ladies Code shits all over your nugu faves
Out of all the nugu groups, these girls really have something special. That something special has a mysterious name long forgotten, it is called... talent.
Now, I don't mean to say that all idol groups completely lack talent of any sort. Certainly they have plenty of talent in being sexy or charming, a bit less have talent in dancing well, and most of them have at least one person who can sing. But how many groups have all talented members? Especially of the new groups?
I mean, I love A Pink, though they can't be considered new now, and with them I must admit only half of them can really sing worth shit. Their concern is singing well enough to not distract you from how lovely they are, because loveliness is their focus. Then you have really new groups like Bestie, who make for a fabulous time, and Uji is a fabulous singer, but Haeryung is worthless in that regard and Dahye is mostly just an idol-rapper with idol-passable singing. Full-package talent isn't their main offer.
That simple notion, one of an actually talented group offering the whole package, and making the whole package their main offer... Well, it just doesn't seem to be attempted much anymore. Ladies Code isn't just attempting it, they are doing it. Therefore, they shit all over your nugu favs, and even half of your older favs. This is a worthy group, like Sistar or Secret, except not copying either one. If anything they are more akin to a Wonder Girls 2.0 (as the general style WG ended up, not as the R&B they began with) but still their own thing, and more talented overall.
Anyway, I'm just saying to give them a chance. I think they are headed for good things and will offer a lot of good.
