[MV Review] WJSN - "Secret"

For those of you who saw the review before it was supposed to go up -  yeah I know I'm a fuck-up. I kept the original comments though. Anyway...


WJSN make their first comeback since their debut, and the MV is probably the best of the summer.


The song is a pleasant, midtempo slightly funk inspired number that follows the same sound from the b-sides of their last album, which means it's good. No real part of the song stands out highly than the rest, it all sort of blends and meshes together to create a more relaxing song for the summer. At first I thought the song was good, not ground breaking or anything but the more I listen to it the more I really like it. 

The music video is on a whole different fucking level than...just about every other MV that's come out this year. It's a perfect blend of special effects and cinematography in one. I need to know who this director is, because this was all very well done. I don't really know what the plot is, and I'm not really sure if this MV even really has one. It honestly just seems like a bunch of moments taped together until the last 30 seconds when a plot almost happens. I guess there was so much money put into the execution the plot was just kind of smeared together at the last minute but I honestly don't care, the video is visually outstanding and not just because of the members.

The overall jest of this is a mixture of mythical, and fairy tale tumblr-ish visuals and then throw in science fiction and Sailor Moon as a combo breaker.






I will also take the time now to say Luda looks great with short hair:


I see some people comparing this to "Destiny" by Lovelyz, I can see it in the choreography but not in the music video all together.

Overall this comeback honestly should have been their debut MV now that I think about it. So far the song is doing well, so this should help WJSN gain some traction before it's too slippery.

NOTE: I'll be moving in and getting settled for college over the next few days so I won't be posting for a week or two as I get used to the campus and all.

  3. Cheng Xiao, Xuan Yi, Bona, Luda, and Eunseo are legitimately so damn attractive, especially Cheng Xiao. The fact that a girl can have an insanely pretty doll-like face and sport thunder thighs and nice tits is a killer combo that cant be beat. Easily the most attractive rookie of 2016.

    1. Are you me? Those are my top 5 in WJSN and I agree about Cheng Xiao.

    2. Two negative things I noticed about her. She doesn't like to interact with the audience and doesn't like fan meetings. And why the F is she always frowning, it's already two notches below SinB level. Sooner or later, people will accuse her of having an attitude problem if she keeps this up.

    3. ^ are you talking about Cheng Xiao? You can literally find gifs of her making the most adorable faces at fan meetings. She is usually quiet and reserved but I fail to see any attitude and also, why would that be a big deal?

    4. Err... Bona, Xuan Yi, Cheng Xiao, Eunseo will pretty much be in most persons' Top 5 anyway. It is the remaining spot that is up for grab. Mine is Yeoreum, instead of Luda.

    5. Cheng Xiao is the definition of a bias wrecker for me.

  4. I like the line "Have you ever felt cosmo inside of you" since Cosmo is a guy's name

    I'm pretty sure the plot is about what would happen if you spike a girl group's drinks with acid, although this is more about what they would see and not just videos of them writhing around on the floor dribbling

    1. it's obviously borrowed from Saint Seiya

      since the Chinese translation is how Saint Seiya translate it in Chinese, "Little Cosmos"

    2. I legit paused the video and laughed at the Cosmos line, however the above comment gives it some background.

  5. I think the plot is about Cosmic Girls waiting for Yeunjung to come and save them from permanent nugudom

    1. That's an anime right?
      I'm not familiar with it, but I wouldn't be surprised if the video is inspired by an anime.

  9. Song is very well done, great vocals and mix is spot on - even the rap sits well in the mix. Whoever mixed and mastered it gets a solid A.

    Video is outstanding and up there with OMG Closer and Ladies Code Galaxy. Hope they have some staying power as Bona and the China line are fap worthy hotties....

  11. The plot seems to be a smash of different space-inspired stories. I see Sailor Moon, Scaflowne, Spaceship movies like Interestellar and such, Saint Seya... there's a lot of images that come from so many places that is hard to tell which is the real story.

    1. Exactly. It seems like they were inspired by so much that they kind of threw together a bunch of (outstanding) visuals but no real plot unless you look REAL deep.

  12. Hi suho_ftw,

    This together with Lovelyz' Destiny and Stellar's Sting sounds like a revival of 70s musical influences. Reminds me of Dr. Hook's music from 1979:
    1) Sexy Eyes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xrah7BiS8Mc
    2) Better Love Next Time - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKFOiL12BI4

    Not to mention the Bee Gees' Fanny (1975) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4qrEOCNr3g

    1. Well EXY is a rapper with a distinctive voice among the sugary tones of the other members so no doubt she stands out!
