    @emanresu10 what has JYP paid you for this nice review (pure advertisment) ;):D:rolleyes: - 10,000 USD?

    The lyrics of 'LIKEY' MV is very thin. The word 'likey' will be spoken out felt 200 times.

    The MV is not bad, but ...it cannot meet highest international standards.

    I hope for good Live performance.

    TWICE fighting!

    Greetings

    My review isn't intended as an attack on those that don't enjoy TWICE.

    It's merely my thoughts about the song and why I think it worked.

    I always welcome disagreement.

    Life would be positively boring without it.

    i am beyond pleased with this mv : )

    i loved the way it was shot - i am not intimating that it's mv of the year, but the locations and color palette were pleasing to the eye. i enjoyed seeing twice out "in the real world" even if odes to their usual stomping grounds (gymnasiums, classrooms, etc) were thrown in.

    i loved jihyo's parts, the handcam pov was my favorite - especially since the mv was designed to be a smattering of references to social media. i thought all the girls looked great, i think twice is very fortunate in that they have perhaps some of the most consistent styling.

    i absolutely adore the song as well, though i know it will be trashed because being a contrarian when it comes to twice is trendy lawl. signal is my favorite twice single, but likey has surpassed it. again, i am not asserting this is some songwriting masterpiece but it's a fun song.

    i also enjoy the chorus dances, i feel like this is part of what makes twice so accessible. intricate chorus dances are great, but the general public just feels piss poor when they can't keep up. part of twice's appeal is that we can all sing AND dance the chorus effortlessly.

    i don't think i need to elaborate on momo's dancebreak! i think everyone knows what's up! all in all, for what twice gives to me this mv & song are grade a. it's a fun, upbeat song that is classic twice at their finest. honestly, getting this after one more time...we are too blessed lol.

    It was amazing, there is literally nothing bad about the song (in my humble-up-twice's-ass opinion)
    I'm sure BTS's penises have had the same effect on you (but v true)

    Liked because it's funny.

    LMAO.

    But I stand by my review.

    Susceptibility to vaginas notwithstanding.

    It didn't come across edgy to me. Or at least not overly so.

    I thought it worked.

    Nice review Eman. I love seeing you fanboy sometimes :teeheek:

    But something about the song and its lyrics make me feel a bit strange...They basically sing about not being able to show their feelings and doing anything to get likes and be pretty for the camera. I know people are going after the song right off the bat, but if you look at the lyrics you can see the bigger message behind the cute colors and such. Which, if you think about it, it's kind of concerning considering TWICE is known for being all happy and cute. Makes me think about how they really feel. I mean, they can't be happy ALL the time. They have to hurt at sometimes and I'm sure being so famous doesn't come with at least some negative effects. Aesthetics were on point though

    Sorry to take over. Just thought I would share :nervousk:

    All of the members shone in this comeback
    Jeongyeon, Mina & Momo's parts were my fave parts
    Tbh from the teaser I knew I would love this comeback

    Glad you liked it!

    I hadn't thought how the simple construction of TWICE's dances perhaps gives them populist appeal. Great insight.

    WIll be looking forward to your upcoming PM!

    Totally agreed with everything! I don’t get it why people pressure them to change concepts. What they do suits them and is unique and true to their vocal color and styles

    Did it come across as fanboying? I thought I'd toned it down lol.....

    Perhaps one can never eliminate the fanboy entirely.

    ;)


    I know the issue of the lyrics is an obstacle for a lot of people in enjoying the song.

    Perhaps future releases will focus on other topics and will allow a more personal reflection of the TWICE members and their thoughts and struggles.


    And yes... the music video and the outfits and girls were all so pretty.

    :)

    I'm not saying you're completely wrong, but I'm perfectly aware of what I like and don't like about them. Is that the same as being brainwashed?

    You forgot one thing. Jeongyeon got overlooked in their title track again.
