The next nation's girl group has finally debuted, and Twice is already off to a strong start.
I almost forgot about Twice's debut earlier in the week, since I literally spent 2 AM to 8 PM studying all week. Then I got to watch the MV on my phone, but it's just not the same as watching MVs on a computer screen.
I was a huge fan of the Sixteen variety show, and luckily(?) I was too busy over the past few months to wait for Twice to debut. It didn't feel like three months to me, but it may have been for most people waiting for Twice.
At first, I didn't like the song too much. I thought it was too good, but I was hoping for something really great so that everyone would accept Twice as the real nine-member nation's girl group and forget about Granny Generation. However, this song is a real grower, like someone's penis whenever they look at 7 of the members (and 9 if they don't mind a visit from Chris Hansen).
The verses seem awkward upon the first few listens, as they switch between slow singing and rapid-fire singing line by line, but it works because the members usually have 1-2 lines at a time. It helps to keep the verses more lively and interesting because they could have been really forgetful if there wasn't a back-and-forth between the members. On the other hand, the chorus does its job very well. It creates some stability to offset the verses. The song can sound disjointed at first, but almost all of the pieces mesh well together. The only exception is the rap section with Dahyun and Chaeyoung, as it just feels forced in there.
JYP made a smart move to debut Twice with a song like this. It's not too far out there like an f(x) song, and it's not too vanilla so as to bore the listener. The song has enough energy to it without having an instrumental that could put off potential fans. While it would have been nice Twice burst out of the gate with a song like miss A's "Bad Girl Good Girl," but the song is strong enough for a debut song.
Onto the members, they're all hot. Tzuyu was my favorite from Sixteen, but Momo is just too fucking hot.
10/10 would fuck Momo in the ass.
