Yep, jumping on the thread-bandwagon.
It's just been a while since I made a thread here and I finally have inspiration.

So as someone who was really hyped for ITZY (and more importantly Yeji's debut), it was kinda a letdown.
I, as a lot of people, thought it was going to be a girl crush concept or an elegant concept.
Dalla Dalla was more like a Disney song sung in Korean.
I don't hate it, but I don't love it as well. It didn't blow me away. I like it.

BUT I have to say: I LOVED the message they sang: loving yourself, don't care what other people tell you/say about you.
We live an era where it's really important to stress this on young girls, surrounded by models with unreachable body goals.

I also loved the MV, loved the bright colors, the dance, the hairstyles.
But c'mon JYP, you have girls who have the faces to pull of girl crush.
Yeji and Chaeryeon especially fit really well in girl crush concepts, or even elegant.
Giving them a Disney-song was a disrespect when they can pull off the above mentioned concepts.
Also, what's the point of making a YouTube-channel for ITZY when you are going to release their teasers and MV's on your main?

With this being said, I look forward to listen to their b-sides (I will post a thread about it when I finished listening to it) and to the next (hopefully more powerful?) comeback!

I feel like the song was bit weird place between girl crush and more cute-young concept, there was distance between the rap parts and singing parts.
YES
I feel like the members fit more girl crush or elegant but JYP tried to play safe

It's BLACKPINK's and TWICE's lovechild, literally.
Hmm I saw that comment as well
I think that JYP really did try to put a mix out there to play safe with the cutesy, but also the more girl crush as we seem to transition to a girl crush period again

I kinda loved it. I have not a problem with anything. But I do admit that it's not a perfect song

Something intresting on twitter that I saw:

Yup they do seem to look fit for more girl crush type of stuff than cute I think and they have dance and attitude in it to match that. It does feel like JYP couldn't quite let Twice's success go and wanted to be safe with that chorus. I think they could have bit better job mixing them though if they wanted to go that route. It's not bad though even if not quite up to many expectations, but debuts often aren't mindblowing- they will probably do better next time ^^

Hmm interesting
I would love the song to be more stronger musically
But really loved the message they brought in the song and I would love them to continue with that

I think what was needed is to be more stronger instrumentally.
I loved the beginning a lot which a bit stronger than the chorus.

Yessss I never completely write off a group from one miss. I hope their sides save it, but overall I heard great things from the sides.
I really love the members so I don't want to fail them :pepecry1:

I liked it. There were some parts that I didn’t like, such as the rap in the middle. Although, I do love the message they’re giving off. I might listen to it a few more times to see if it’ll grow on me.
