At first blush, you would think that the Move MV would be a lovely storyline full of angst, lust, and "LGBT AWARENESS." Well... You would be wrong. It's actually a dance-in-a-box MV with closeups and BAIT-AND-SWITCH BARELY THERE lesbian plot. We were all fooled, people.
|>MFW I realized I was lied to|
From what I can tell, the majority of the "plot" seems to be about an intrepid young heroine that goes to a bar to get a drink, runs into another hot young woman, and the two hook-up. That's it. Maybe there's some more development, like the heroine wants something more but the other girl just wanted it to be a one-night-stand so now the heroine is dejected and emo/mopey.

Then they JIZZED IN THEIR PANT(ie)S

This is all of the "lesbian content" we get, exactly what we saw in the original teasers. (Credits to Grey-nim~)
What a waste of a perfectly intriguing concept... I think we were all praying for the full Monty not for some poster children effort at LGBT awareness (come on people), but more than just the token titillation of two attractive girls PRETENDING to go at it. The search continues...
The song at least is surprisingly good. I really enjoyed the song. The intrumentals are nice, the processing is solid, and no one really reaches too hard for the "explosive vocal power" many people think "proves" you're a good singer. My one gripe, albeit a humongous one, is the rap break at the end. I thought we've moved past the awkwardly-thrust-in shitty rap break era of KPop, but this song throws back to it in the worst way. It completely derails the pace of the song and shit on my enjoyment of a decent, dare I say good even, rookie debut. If not for that rap break, and a few small quibbles I suppose, I would have given this a more high score.
As it stands, I'm not too sure I want to add these girls to the special place in my heart for nugus just yet. The teaser was promising, but the end result was... solid at least. For now, I will simply keep my eye on them and see how they develop.
|Especially my girl YE SEUL. I hope she lives up to the lofty standards of her namesake|
or Han Ye Seul unnie will probably demand her name back.
Solid song, but full of LIES about the lesbians.
- Song is surprisingly good
- girls are attractive
- surprisingly more explicit lesbian content than we've ever gotten yet
- the butt grope made me giggle like a teenage schoolboy
- YE SEUL
- LIES, FILTHY LIES
- the fucking rap break
- wtf dance moves
I give this song a respectable 3.5 out of 5.
