Lovelyz is currently receiving mixed views regarding their latest Mnet‘s “Queendom” performance. The girl group chose to forego their soft and delicate concept to cover the girl crush song “Sixth Sense” by Brown Eyed Girls.
While their performance saw great reviews among international fans, Korean netizens found it lacking in a number of ways, particularly their soft vocals and facial expressions.
If they want to pull off girl crush, they need facial expressions too. And even their movements are so anchored on innocent concepts that it’s so off ㅜㅜ
– Korean Netizen
Some pointed out that they lacked chemistry.
They’re not even a survival group, but the members don’t have any harmony with each other
– Korean Netizen
Others, however, were less critical, praising the expressions of Jisoo and Kei‘s impressive high note.
International fans took to Twitter to defend the girls.
Why do ppl can't even once appreciate Lovelyz for every hardwork they did?? Nicely..
I feel hurt for the girls…
Even if the harsh criticism make them tougher, stronger and braver, but all the hate and downgrading are too much😭
Just go away you dear bpic.twitter.com/ssfpphzxJh

They mentioned that the vocals seemed soft because they wanted the song to fit their style more.
Just wanted to note this: this performance isn't supposed to be compared to the original song rather it should be rearranged into lovelyz style so yeah it makes sense they lowered the pitch and you can feel the song being a tiny bit sweet which is lovelyz color#Queendom #Lovelyz
