Yet, while international netizens were obsessed with the song, the consensus from Korean fans was very different. Although some appreciated the #tb references, many found the song disappointing and even shared that the controversial song “Wife” was a better option for a title track.

  • The MV kinda looks like an MV from America back then LOL. The song isn’t one that will appeal to the public but I like it.
  • It looks flashy, but that’s it? The hoko is kinda weak. Will it stay in the heads of the listeners?
  • I listened to it on Melon first and it was so-so. Watching it with the MV made the song way better.
  • The song is really bad. “Wife” is way better. They should’ve written the lyrics properly and used wife as the title.
  • Tacky and seems like I’ve seen it somewhere before.
  • From the intro to the outfits, what’s going on? Taken aback.
  • They’re downgrading bit by bit.
  • Out of all idle songs, it’s the worst.
  • Why something like this all of a sudden… Idk where they began to go wrong

(G)I-DLE undoubtedly create a buzz with their music. Whether you like it or not, the video is truly a masterpiece showcasing the dominance of the members and their desire to always create something new.
