Rarely have I been this disappointed by a debut. They suffered from what many other K-pop groups have suffered from: teasers that promise so much with actually good music or samples, but then the track itself turns out to be something completely different and underwhelming.


If people complained that Aespa's "Next Level" was a mashup between (at least) three different songs, then that was nothing compared to this track by NMIXX. Is this really their actual debut single? I'm still not sure. It seems as if it's a promotional MV intended to promote the range of what the group can do, and the kind of tracks they will release in the future. But is it one track? Maybe they'll release a new MV tomorrow which contains the actual track. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for experimentation. But there's a line between that and a disjointed track, and the line isn't even fine.


As someone who values instrumental melodies, I kept waiting to hear something like that, only for it to appear halfway through the song. Unfortunately, that melodic part wasn't even impressive, and it ended soon anyway when the third section of the song kicked in. The MV was visually grand, but it too was disjointed like the song. People often say when they hear a new track that they aren't really sure about it, but maybe after a few listens they'll get used to it. That's not going to happen with this track.


JYP seems to have a bipolar approach to songs: either they are very traditionally K-pop-ish, with very little freshness in terms of soundscape, beats or structure, and make people beg for some creativity; or if they go for experimental, they throw everything into the pot. The middle ground is missing.


What am I supposed to take away from O.O? I really don't know. I guess the "name" of the track is fitting, though. That's what my face looked like when watching the MV, but not in a good way.
