Heyy lovelies! โ™ก

I'm so sorry for not posting an article for the past few days, but The Netherlands (and other countries in Europe) had been hit with an extreme heatwave and I was lowkey dying. But I'm back.

A while ago, I wrote this article:

I thought let's write a part 2. So here we go.

DISCLAIMER: I don't hate any of the artists I criticize in this article. They all worked very hard for their positions and this is just my opinion.

โ€ I was really excited for this sub-unit when it got announced. Especially after Baekhyun's amazing solo debut, I expected a lot from this. But you already guessed it: I am disappointed. I did enjoy some of the side tracks I must say, but the title track is a no from me. Which is sad cause Chanyeol and Sehun are amazing.

Also, I'm really not keen on this album packaging.

โ€ I can't believe that the Jennie hate bandwagon is still running. Things are getting better and at the time where Jennie was considered "lazy" she might have been going through stuff, so please don't hop on a bandwagon when you don't know what's going on with the idol. Honestly don't hop on a bandwagon in general unless the idol has commited a serious crime or something.

โ€ Yes, they often have choreos which at some parts look similar. And yes, they might be slightly easier than other girlgroup's choreos. I think they could use some new dance moves but I strongly disagree with the statement "a hard choreo equals a good choreo", cause that's just not true. I don't mind if a group has choreography that is easier to learn.

โ€ I'm gonna keep this short. We all know YG has done some questionable things. But the girls have nothing to do with that so stop hating them because they are from YG.

โ€ This is not directed towards every single company, since JYP for example, actually does a great job with girlgroup album packaging. I'd say this is especially directed towards SM and YG.

I think it's sad that girlgroups often get smaller and less special packaging. The albums are still pretty, but you can't deny that boygroups get better album packaging. Girlgroups are as good as boygroups so give them what they deserve.

โ€ I obviously don't know about X1 yet, but IZ*ONE is in my opinion better than both I.O.I and Wanna One if we look at their music. I.O.I and Wanna One both had decent music, but nothing too oustanding in my opinion. IZ*ONE has great songs I keep coming back to.

โ€ I love the bright concept and the song is such a bop. Also the side track is so good. I don't get why there is a hate bandwagon.
