AOA, who recently made an anticipated comeback with double title tracks "Bing Bing" and "Excuse Me", have currently become subject to an onslaught of negative reviews from netizens. 

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. 

What are your thoughts on AOA's comeback?

AOA is amazing and they will continue to be it, they are amazing and they have incredible skills. They are amazing dancers they are great singers. (they are great baseball players(maybe)). And overall they are great people they have a great bond as group and are great people to each other and their fans, and i think that they will continue having the great career they always have. And i hope that they stay that way forever. So even if you think that AOA is no longer good then you are WRONG!! Just know they are great.

Just so that people know this. AOA has always had great songs and their newest ones are the best ones the had made so far. They are still great and always have been. So their is no need for people to talk bad about them, because the ones talking bad about them are just people who have no taste in music and are just negative people. Because AOA is one of the best girl groups in Kpop.

Man, I can't believe that AOA's release is being called 'terrible'. Just like that. I mean, I can see why people don't like this comeback so much (some say choreo's not good enough, some has issues with the lyrics or singing or whatever), but come on. It might not be as good as people was hoping it to be, but it's not terrible. If anything, it should just be called slightly disappointing. Some netizens overreact by calling it a straight-up flop or just hated it by saying it sucks. Tell ya what, for me, it's catchy and I like it a lot. But if you don't, please don't make it sound like it's just CRAP. It's making AOA sound like the worst group in the industry and that ain't right! AOA is working hard and it might not have been enough YET, but they most definitely didn't "totally flop" or are "seriously terrible". If you're a real fan you woulda known that.

The reasons AOA is not doing well have got nothing to do with AOA.

am i the only one who really liked their new music??? their new album was really good and so was the title tracks. i liked the mvs and the choreo too. idk why people are saying it's terrible. yeah, i think their old songs were better but this is good too?? i love it a lot and i love AOA no matter what

I would say If Heart Attack is a 8/10, then Excuse Me is like 7/10, not "terribly bad" but not the level of Heart Attack, since both songs are from Brave Brothers.

It's  true that they are pushing seolhyun's too much the other member are pretty and funny too! Especially Hyejong who is the official visual of AOA

Winston pandaspirit Thursday, January 5, 2017

although Jyejong is the "official visual", when MBC had a special stage for visuals, they picked EXID's Hani, AOA's Seolhyun and TWICE's Tzuyu, for the stage instead.

-> typo "Hyejong" not Jyejong.

The company is slacking,  they need better choreography,  new concept other than the plain sexy they r doing,  Good luck was a good song but shit just happened.  And about the atrention going only to one member this isn't the first group that does that,  with missA and Suzy,  dia and chaeyong,  laboum and solbi,  cosmic girls and the Chinese member,  the list goes on and on

the songs aren't that bad, I think bing bing is catchy but whatever, for me netizens are overreacting :/
