Catching Up With Recent Comebacks: TAEMIN|(G)I-DLE

(Please note – This is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to each song.)

“2 KIDS” by TAEMINimg_2848Reaction to Official MV:

  • Interesting guitar strumming for the intro, and as expected, Taemin is serving vocals.
  • The cityscape visuals for this music video are stunning.
  • The guitar instrumental is really intriguing and beautiful.
  • I love the chorus, it has a graceful and somewhat relaxing melody.
  • Taemin dancing is so unique and fluid. It’s always fun to watch him dance.
  • So this song is about two young people that fell in love and unfortunately had to break up? I guess they were too immature and hurt each other a lot.
  • That’s what I’m getting from the lyrics so far.
  • The instrumental is incredible, it keeps surprising me.
  • I know Taemin wrote the lyrics, but whoever produced the music is mighty talented.
  • “2 KIDS” is playlist worthy. The rhythm and melody are going to be stuck in my head for a while.
  • I love this song. Therefore it gets a 10/10 rating from me.

 

“DUMDi DUMDi” by (G)I-DLEimg_2852Reaction to Official MV:

  • Thankfully most of the music videos I’m watching today have English subs.
  • I am getting strong Old West vibes from this music video and intro.
  • All the girls look beautiful.
  • Well, that was an abrupt way to end the intro. I would have preferred a better blend into the actual song.
  • The song itself is giving me major Arabic vibes.
  • Honestly, at this point, I have no idea what to expect. Fingers crossed🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼, please be a good song.
  • WAIT, I am so confused. The Arabic sound that I assumed was the beginning of the song is not actually the song?😂😂😂🤣🤣
  • Okay… okay, let’s continue, but at least that makes up for the abrupt switch I didn’t like.
  • All the ladies are in the same motel, and it’s about to go down!!!
  • You see, the actual song intro blended in perfectly like I wanted.
  • Oooh, the beat is hard, and Soyeon looks stunning with the long hair.
  • They are all doing well in the vocal department. Unfortunately, I wasn’t feeling it until Minnie’s part came in.
  • She looks gorgeous with pink hair.
  • The chorus is captivating but still feels off to me.
  • Soyeon’s flow is excellent, as always.
  • I vibe with the chorus more on the second listen.
  • I think Minnie might be my bias in (G)I-DLE. I love her voice, and she is so pretty.
  • “DUMDi DUMDi” is a fun song. I love the chorus, but I don’t think it’s something I would listen to a lot, hence why it gets an 8.5/10 from me.
