This pisses me off. Of course we don't know the full circumstances of how her childhood went down, but don't tell me you have no empathy at all for a child that had to be a caregiver for her mother from the beginning of her life because her dad was working all the time and then WALKED OUT on them? Just because children have to care for their sick parents all the time, doesn't mean that's and healthy situation to grow up in. So before she could just be a kid she had to be a caregiver, you typed that out and you seriously can't see how that can fuck with a child? Just because she had to, she had to suck it up and never express her feelings about it? (Also if this wasn't what you were implying, please tell me what you were) Also admitting your mom is abusive is fucking hard, sometimes you're only able come to terms with the fact you were abused years later. Sometimes you lie or nitpick the good moments to pretend you had normal parents. It's humiliating to talk about it, it's terrifying. Especially because moms are glorified in society and the media to be these naturally nurturing, loving, angels. That whole 'women are naturally nurturing' is absolute bullshit. I don't like Holly at all but I had to say this.
I love stray kids new song, reminds me a lot of popular electronic music producer's music from my country. Also speaking of my country Zimzalabim sounds so stupid to me because I don't know if that's only here (probably not) but it means basically the same thing as hocus pocus, like a childish magic spell type of thing. It just sounds so cringy to me when they go all zimzalabimzimzimzalabim as if that's supposed to sound cool or something. Like listening to a kid's show song lmao. Listened to the whole album, liked everything else.
When Itzy debuted people complained that Dalla Dalla was a messy song with too many contrasting things going on. I never agreed with that at all. ZImzalabim however is a perfect example of that imo. The bridge was beautiful, really Red Velvet has amazing vocals. I would more ballads from them. The song just doesn't flow, it has just too many contrasting things it jumps from this to that (my opinion). The song doesn't go along with the visual concept either. Mv doesn't fit with the song and doesn't flow with it either. At least the choreo seems fun.
Why would she be nervous on stage thinking about the yg scandals. You really believe that's what's going through her head while performing? She not even under YG? I don't mean this in a bad way it just doesn't make sense to me. I reckon she's under some stress because of the choreo being rushed and not enough time to fully practice or something. Btw I can't wrap my head around why this debut is so rushed with the whole choreo not being fully finished days before and stuff. It already got delayed, like what were they all doing in those months? Just really unprofessional honestly. I don't blame Somi for this, like I don't even know what went down behind the scene's but it's just so weird to me.
Her live stages SUCK. The choreo sucks, her execution sucks, her charisma is dry, but what bothers me the most is that she literally forgets to lip synch like half of the song like wtf. Even her stans aren't shy of leaving backhanded compliments in the comments "Oh look she's already improving so much!" um just admit it sucks alright lmao
Yeah that makes a lot of sense. I'm glad Itzy consists of the members they have now but to leave JYP and the group for this sloppy debut has got the be the stupidest decision ever....
I actually love both songs. It's generic but it has the freaky edge to it I was hoping for. ANYWAY, Why exactly wouldn't she be able to have this concept with JYP? lmao like that's the reason she gave for leaving JYP right? Honestly now she debuted that reason is confirmed bs imo. Like bruh. Oh well whatever, at this point that doesn't really matter anymore I guess.
