What a good ending!

One of the songwriters of IVE‘s most recent album recently responded to criticism from a fan.

IVE recently made their comeback with “Baddie,” something fans have said is a new sound from the group. The album, titled I’ve Mine, includes six tracks.

As with any K-Pop release, fans have their feelings on each track and will often share their ranking of songs. This is completely normal in any music genre, as everyone has different tastes.

One song on the album that has been more decisive than others seems to be the last track, “Payback.”

One fan shared their ranking of the tracks on the album, giving “Payback” a zero out of ten. This seemed to shock another X(Twitter) user, who sent a gif in response.

After this first exchange, the fan asks who the replier is, reacting with surprise when he shares that he participated in the track’s songwriting!

Ryan Curtis, a songwriter for Los Angeles, can be seen listed among the names in the song’s credits.

In a polite exchange, the fan congratulates him and wishes him luck on his continued activities. Ryan Curtis thanks the fan and shares that he enjoys hearing what fans think, both good and bad.

In a separate post, the same fan shares the exchange and then hilariously tweets that she liked another track Ryan Curtis participated in, “Breath” by NCT DREAM.

Curtis responds again, listing some of his other tracks, advertising his work in the best way.

Netizens found the exchange hilarious and relatable, saying they would do the same in Ryan Curtis’s position.
