    Sorry, it's not for me lol

    I didn't bother watching their survival show, but my friends told me it was basically Sixteen 2.0. The only things I know about it are the questionable things JYP did.

    As for the song... welllllll
    it's the most generic thing I've heard in a while. The producer simply made the most basic j-pop song they could come up with.

    9 members and a cute concept, targeted specifically at Japan... I know Twice gives JYP a load of money, but did they have to literally create a clone? Why would I bother stanning NiziU? I'd be stanning pretty much two groups that offer the exact same thing, with the same number of members.

    I'm sure the girls are nice people, it's just something I'll pass. :3

    Lmaoo I thought it was just me, also I just looked at their ages and most of them are 05 liners.. df.

    Honestly I hope they stay in Japan, or at least maybe improve a hit den come into the kpop world.

    You're supposed to post anything NiziU in the J-Pop section btw.
    And on topic. I loved it. But I did follow the entire survival show so I did get attached to the girls.

    I like the girls, especially Mako, but I didn’t like the pre-release single. But I’m excited to see what music they come out with later on

    I think JYP is playing it safe. The song literally sounded like Happy Happy by TWICE and Shake It Off by Taylor Swift had a child. I think they're introducing the girls by showing Japan what they already know and love(which is basically TWICE XD). Maybe they'll switch it up later.

    1 of them is an 05 liner. And 05 liner is 15, there have & still are idols who debuted much younger. Idols are the same age, it’s us that are getting older

    And wanting them to stay in one country just because you don’t like a song they made makes absolutely no sense

    Just say you wish no success for them

    Anyway NiziU’s song was fun & cute, and wasn’t even their official debut

    Imagine having that much success in Japan & abroad with a pre-release, or even an actual debut

    People with taste know best

    :siptear::excitedr:

    But she actually looks good here, with the short hair? :whatr:

    As for the song, it wasn't really my thing: either they're missing a solid vocal line, or the producer should've spent more time and attention on the production of the song.

    But I understand this was just a predebut song, sort of an appetizer, so let's see what the debut song will be like.

    They have Nina, Mihii, Mako, & Riku so the vocal line is pretty strong

    And this is a pre-single from the show, so it wasn’t meant to be a huge go all out hit

    It was a nice charming feel good starter

    It’s a really catchy song ngl, but I agree on how it is generic in terms of structure (it’s easy to pick up the pattern of who’s singing what in the next second or so LOL); however, the “generic” quality of the song is a huge part of what makes the song “catchy” plus the honest opinion that it gives out high-key Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” vibes (especially their intro), so I can give them that. As the group, don’t come at me, but...it seems like they’re on the path of being a Japanese version of TWICE ngl....:oops:

    I’m not sure if I should stan this group or not (I don’t mind all of them being younger than me, but I just need to hear more material from them to be sure), but the two main vocalists of the group are my most favorite members so far lol.

    Yeah, that's how I saw it, not as the main course but as the teaser or snack before.

    I didn't watch the show, only an episode or so, so I didn't recall their vocal line. If they're strong, it didn't really get showcased properly in this MV tbf.
    If you have links to performance videos of the show where they showcase their vocals more, don't hesitate to share, it'd be appreciated.

    Lmaoo idk why ur getting offended over my opinion, their mus
    their music is generic, and there’s nothing that special. This is something that’s already oversaturated in the kpop world, they aren’t bringing anything new. Idk why ur getting offended over my opinion.

    Who said I got offended? I’m stating facts, if you feel offended by that then that says something about someone, and that ain’t me

    You could have whatever opinion on the song you want, but trying to say they should leave Japan because you don’t like their music not only is bizarre but is very xenophobic

    “My opinion” isn’t an immunity card from a response, at all

    You wouldn’t like it if someone said your Kpop favs should stay in Korea until they like a song by them

    Calling out (which I didn’t even really do, I just critiqued you’re input, not bashed it or you) =/= getting offended, but getting offended by the calling out is getting offended

    And what group has anything special or new coming out? Unless you’re Dreamcatcher or something, you’re doing the same thing everyone else is doing in a sense. NiziU isn’t being any more or less original than the next group, who also isn’t

    They’re releasing fun happy music, and so long as people are touched by that & enjoy it, they can continue to live their dreams

    Just say you dislike them & stick to that
