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."

What are your thoughts on Red Velvet's comeback with "Rookie"?

Why are people saying Russian Roulette wasn't a good song? It was by far the BEST song that ever came from RV, it has the most likes on Melon amongst all of their songs (100k+). Rookie is nowhere near being Russian Roulette 2.0 because Russian Roulette is a good. I'm more surprised people prefer Dumb Dumb over Russian Roulette, musically. Dumb Dumb was like a more robotic version of ICC in my opinion.

How is Russian Roulette bad? In terms of sales, etc, ICC is #1 and RR is #2. Literally agreeing with you so hard.

Russian Roulette and Rookie are their worst songs so far. Too generic, auto-tuned and plain repetition of nonsense phrases that targets teenagers subliminal consciousness to get them addicted to dumb song good for 9-13 years old with no context at all. They become 1-dimensional group that musically don't evolve. SM should do something about it. K-POP is getting worse and worse each day.

Idk why some people have to attack Russian roulette like that, I loved that song and it was hella addicting... but I agree Rookie was trash... SM needs to work harder, Red Velvet are pretty, full of talent, and unique, like please don't push them off to the side and throw songs at them that you were going to throw out. TRY!!!!

I'm honestly just disappointed. I expected an upbeat 'Dumb Dumb-esque' song, but SM just made a Russian Roulette 2.0. SM needs to stop with their experimentations and just give RV a solid song.

This is a good thing in the long run though. Even as a fan, don't just be a drone and think everything your favorite group puts out is the best thing since slice bread. Fans should be giving a lot of constructive criticism if they want the group to last.

Is SM just showing us how rookies are first seen as by fans (like prejudice or 'love at first sight')like as of now(the comments) or what? lol the lyrics are every fangirl's dream.....

I guess people have different opinions on Red Velvets album. I think people who hates the album are getting too much with their negative comments. I personally think the album is Dope!!! RED VELVET, YOU GUYS ROCK!! Keep going with your music, it keeps getting better and better!!! <3 <3
