Korean pop has come to a standstill since the Sewol incident, and with things slowly picking up, now is the perfect time to look back at some songs that came out but were not covered on AKF. First up in A Pink's "Mr. Chu." A Pink was winning on music shows before the ferry incident. A Pink usually is very solid with their releases, so let's see how "Mr. Chu" stands out.
Unfortunately, Mr. Chu is a letdown considering that A Pink has a higher bar compared to other groups. When a group has released great songs such as "My My" and "NoNoNo," "Mr. Chu" feels like a kick in the balls. The song isn't bad, but it feels lifeless. The chorus is decent, but the instrumental should have been layered with more instruments, as it felt basic. A higher BPM would have definitely helped. The song lacks an interesting bridge. I would rather have had Eunji unleash some notes for the vocal fags to jack it too instead of the underwhelming bridge the song threw at us. In the end, the song is passable, but easily forgettable. Go listen to "My My" instead.
While the song itself doesn't provide much to be excited over, the netizens' ridiculous attacks on A Pink is what made this comeback worth it. Supposedly A Pink copied f(x)'s uniforms.
"OH MY FUCKING GOD, A WHITE, COLLARED SHIRT, A SKIRT AND HIGH KNEE SOCKS! THESE FUCKING CUNTS PLAGIARIZED F(X)! LET'S IGNORE THE FACT THAT I WISH FOR EVERY GIRL TO WEAR THE SAME UNIFORM IN MY FANTASIES WHILE I FAP!!!!" - Dumbass Korean Netizen #549305
I doubt the ulterior motive is to force A Pink to remove their clothing while performing this song, so I cannot get behind this plagiarism accusation. If that were the case, I would be behind the netizens on this one. However, with the weight Chorong has lost, her body probably resembles an Ethiopian teenager. Unless you have a fetish fat girls who turn into skeletons with loose skin drooping from their bodies (I'm looking at you, No), then I doubt you would be behind seeing A Pink remove their clothing on stage to appease illogical netizens.
Better luck next time, A Pink.
