    By any comebacks of groups (or soloists) you are a fan of? Were there comebacks that you disliked from your faves this year? You can also put somewhat disappointments if a comeback was just ok to you and slight disappointments if you liked a comeback but it wasn't as good as last year's releases or b-sides were better than the title track or anything where you were disappointed but still liked the comeback. For each group or soloist you name please also list your favorite title track (and explain if you want) so that this thread isn't completely negative. Also please explain why you disliked the comeback but no bashing. You can say stuff like "this sounded like noise", "the instrumental was bad" "the rap was too fast for her" "the key was too high for him" or anything without bashing. This thread is just to have a discussion and for people to be able to express their opinions and disappointments:)
    I'll start.

    Disappointments:
    Seventeen:
    • Favorite Title Track: Boom Boom. This song is just so catchy and has an iconic dance. I love the instrumental and how well it goes with the music. The snapping is just ingenious. I love the energy throughout the song and how it has more vocals than rap. The beat is great and the song makes me want to song. And the ad libs are great.
    • Disappointing comeback: Hit. Home and Fear were fine, but this one was a disappointment. It's especially disappointing for me because I had liked all of Seventeen's title tracks until this song. The song seems like something anyone could make and seems haphazard. The instrumentals are too loud with relation to the vocals and the chorus is not it imo. I find it too noisy and less melodic.

    Monsta X:
    • Favorite title track: Fighter. I love the rock sound they have going on here and I love Shownu, Wonho, and Kihyun's adlibs. Go vocal line! Joohoney and I.M. killed the rap as usual and it fit nicely in the song, didn't seem out of place. I also love the energy throughout the song. There isn't a single boring part. I hope they have another rock comeback sometime.
    • Disappointing comeback: Follow. The instrumental is too loud during the chorus part and I dislike the chorus part itself as well. I also find this song too noisy. It might have been ok without the chorus and the corresponding instrumental, but with it, it was a disappointment. I miss their melodic releases like Jealousy or Dramarama and hypes like Rush.

    Somewhat Disappointment:
    Exo:
    • Favorite Title Track: Love Me Right. The entire song is so catchy and the instrumental is great and fits it so well. It seems like a perfect pop song and I couldn't get it out of my head for weeks and don't think I'll ever get tired of it. And vocals were on point as usual. The chorus is great and the song makes me want to dance.
    • Somewhat Disappointing comeback: Obsession. At first I thought I liked the song mostly because of the "I don't think so" parts. Yesterday I listened to it with headphones for the first time and I liked it less and it became just ok. Chanyeol's rap here as well is probably too fast for him. His raps in Loveshot and Tempo were better. The album itself is my least favorite EXO album because there are songs I find just ok, and exo is my bias group and I like most of their songs.

    Slight Disappointment:
    Super Junior:
    • Favorite Title Track: It's You. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this song. It's not in your face, but it's catchy. The melody is great and song is chill yet has so much energy. Vocals are on point as usual.
    • Slightly Disappointing comeback: Super Clap. I liked Super Clap but I like all the b-sides they released with music videos or special videos better. I also liked last year's comebacks better.

    Your turn. Please don't bash and remember everything on this thread will be opinions. They shouldn't affect your enjoyment or disappointment of the music. Hopefully we can just have a nice discussion and maybe you'll find people who agree with you:)

    I’m sorta disappointed with only one comeback in first full year of being a BTS fan but they released quite a few songs anyways plus Kookie with his teaser of his songs has me super excited. I quite enjoyed this year.

    ITZY: I actually liked dalla dalla but only the chorus/pre chorus. Icy just wasn’t it for me I couldn’t get into it and that’s when I kinda stopped keep up with them. Hopefully they come back with a stronger comeback and some more vocal training because damn we’re they straining.

    Proably Fake Love followed by I Need U. Boy With Luv would be third.

    Thank you! This was a great response and the type I was hoping for. Hopefully other Midzys or former midzys share their views!

    I guess I’m one of the few Ls that loved the obsession comeback. It finally got me excited for kpop again as most of 2019 was pretty disappointing.

    I was disappointed with Bts boy in luv, don’t get me wrong the song is catchy and I listened to it when it first came out but it got boring real quick and was just another pop song to me

    When zimzalabim first came out I remembered my initial reaction being like “wtf is this” but after 20 listens it’s a banger lol does that count as a disappointment too?

    Mamamoo’s hip was an ok song for me as well. Catchy chorus the rest is forgettable

    Kinda hard for me to pick my favourite exo title track but I would have to agree love me right was on repeat ever since It came out. But growl is superior

    Only Slightly Disappointed with Fancy. After the string of unbelievable mega bops in Heartshaker, What is Love, DTNA, and Yes or Yes, Fancy was a slight disappointment, it's one of their weaker title songs. I put it above TT and Likey as part of the bottom 3 of my least faves.
