The hit song “KITSCH” by IVE has just been released early. A song that makes you feel totally confident and cool, and people all over the world went crazy for it.
It’s only been out for 18 hours, but it’s already had over 7,500,000 views, and that doesn’t count any YouTube view freezes.
There have been a lot of posts about the song in Korean online communities. Here’s what the Korean audience really thinks about it, based on the posts that made it to the top.
“The beginning is awesome… It sounds like a pop song in the chorus, but the beginning is better.”
“It’s a B-side, so we don’t need to say much about it, but did they try to make it popular in other countries? The chorus sounds a bit like what’s popular in other places. Also, Jang Wonyoung‘s voice in the beginning is awesome. This is the first time I’ve heard it, maybe because I like another idol.”
“The chorus is a little simple, but it’s not out yet, so… Anyway, besides the chorus, it’s pretty good, which is a surprise.”
“For a B-side that wasn’t even out yet, it’s pretty good. It’s really good except for the chorus, which sounds like a lot of other songs… Even though it’s a B-side, it’s a good song to listen to for fun. “The MV is also pretty.”
“For a B-side, it’s not bad. Before the chorus, it’s fine, but I didn’t really like the chorus. Anyway, they have always picked good songs, so I’m looking forward to the title track.”
“That low voice Wonyoung has is crazy.”
“Am I the only one who likes the different parts of the chorus? It’s good as hell.”
“Guys, it’s just a B-side… This is a good rule…”
“Maybe because there are no peaks or climaxes? But since it’s a B-side, it’s most likely going to be easy to listen to and not as good as BLACKPINK… I think this is good for a B-side.”
“The line “It’s our own free Nineteen’s Kitsch” just rolls off your tongue. I love it.”
“It’s just a B-side, so it’ll be hard to be over a top song. This isn’t the case with title tracks, though. Anyway, the game will come out in April, and today is just a pre-release, so this is good quality from a mid-tier agency.”
“Why did they have to rap? Anyway, IVE chooses f*cking good songs, so I think it would be better to just have vocals. There are no regrets because all of their albums were hits, but I think it would be better to focus on the girls’ voices and make the song longer instead of adding a rap.”
“The rap lyrics could use some work… But, all in all, it’s a good song.”
