It seems like Red Velvet's new title track failed to live up to some fans' expectations.
On February 1 (KST), Red Velvet finally unveiled a colorful MV for their new title song "Rookie". Their comeback seemed to be off to a great start as the MV garnered much attention and even reached 1 million views in less than half a day.
However, netizens have been showering the girl group with negative feedback. Netizens claim that "Rookie" lacks an addictive melody and catchiness, and "is far worse than their previous title tracks".
Comments stated, "Maybe my expectations were too high but it's so bad... It's the worse out of all of Red Velvet's title tracks. Their visuals are shining, though. SM, let's do a better job", "I personally think it's worse than 'Dumb Dumb' and 'Happiness'. I listened to it 3 times and I don't feel the addictiveness", "It's really really weird.. What happened this time TT Their other songs were great..", "I thought they were like a Japanese girl group... The highlight part... omg.. so disappointed."
