    The timing is bad and I don’t see the connection between Umpah Umpah and ZimZalabim.

    ZimZalabim should have dropped in May with Umpah Umpah dropping in July in my opinion, Umpah Umpah was a good rebound but lowkey still feels overshadowed by ZimZalabim and the fact that it’s a summer comeback being dropped in the last quarter of august.

    In terms of continuation ZimZalabim did a great job at capturing the festival concept they were selling with this project so I assume they would continue but instead they ditched the festival to go on a road trip to their beach house with holes in the ceilings? I don’t know did I miss something?

    Despite the mess of the promotions before the Umpah Umpah they still retain there spot in the GG hierarchy. People mention iz*one or ITZY coming for RV but let’s be real for a second Iz*one feels more like a Jpop group that has Korean promotions on the side while ITZY Icy wasn’t strong enough to grab a top GG position. SM better get here shit together for the Finale though Red Velvet been quirky for a full year now, Sophisticated Velvet needs to make a return.

    Red Velvet released a Halloween video in December. They dont give a fuck about timing.

    I love halloween (so happy) and think christmas time is kinda depressing so you could only imagine how glad I was about Red Velvet's timing

    Ultimately it's the quality of the music and the videos that matter, not when they were released. Unless you think RBB was bad cause it wasnt released in October? Which would be really dumb.

    RBB isnt the best example, power up is the best example.. it did amazing in early, they should comeback with it on july or june

    No RBB was good but that era felt rushed as hell, and probably would have been bigger if SM didn’t have beef with early every damn award show

    No they have potential to be big but ICY the comeback itself isn’t enough to push the over an already establish GG, it’s No Cheer Up. But they have potential

    I’m talking about the correlation between the two comebacks though I know Zim is red and velvet and ump is red but why didn’t Umpah continue the festival theme?

    i agree the themes didn't really match and were kinda messy but umpah umpah slaps and zimzalabim was pretty disappointing music wise at first so i'm feeling forgiving.

    i do kinda wish they would have had a continuous storyline throughout the reve festival concept though. i thought the umpah umpah music video was better (more interesting shots and cuter effects like seugli's lil rain cloud moment) but yeah, the beach house was random as hell. i really think the last one is gonna be halloween themed. they already went cheesy horror movie for rbb so maybe a more sophisticated scary concept like peekaboo? i'd be down

    There is connection between ZimZalabim and umpah umpah. You have to go deep

    I disagree about bad timing, I think the comeback fits the end of summer/early autumn vibes perfectly. It reminds me of taking 1 last camping trip at the end of summer vacation because the weather is going to start to cool off.

    Plot wise there’s not many connections between ZZB and UU but they do have subtle thematic similarities. In ZZB the girls have to escape reality through illusions to achieve their dreams/happiness.
    In UU the girls “escape” the claustrophobic city to have fun, but realize it’s each other’s company and memory that is what brings themselves happiness. During the MV they also experience similar illusions; Irene sees the fish tank and envisioned herself swinging in the ocean. Seulgi balancing on the stormy roof imagines herself balancing a surfboard. Wendy imagines herself on the beach when looking at a Monopoly beach location. Yeri peeks out from her umbrella (protecting herself from the leaky roof) but imagines she’s peeking out from a beach umbrella.

    I wouldn’t take the word “Festival” literally. Although Day 2 does have a song (Jumpin) that does literally reference a festival hahaha.

    Imo I do prefer Zimzalabim for how fantastical and imaginative it is. Umpah Umpah was softer and more subtle which I still like but ZZB won me over.
