Anticipation for AOA's comeback skyrocketed thanks to their gorgeous concept teasers, as well as news that they'd partnered up with hitmaker Brave Brothers again. However, their new releases supposedly failed to live up to the hype, causing disappointment.
Netizens commented, "AOA's new release is really bad.... Total flop...", "Their new song is seriously terrible. And who made the choreography? What happened with this album?", "The raps are annoying again, especially in 'Bing Bing'", "Cosmic Girls even beat AOA..", and more.
Not only are their new tracks receiving criticism, but also the whole group in general. Netizens see it as a serious problem that Seolhyun is always the being "pushed" instead of the other members, doing more solo promotions and garnering all the attention. With their continuously "terrible" releases, netizens don't think they will last long in the industry, with just one member doing well. Netizens also emphasized that the last time AOA had a hit song was with "Heart Attack" in 2015. Overall, k-nets think AOA is most likely going downhill from now on if they persist without improvements.
