Henry: Jesus Kevin: I feel like if this was one of the first kpop songs that i heard, I’d appreciate the funk vibe way more Kevin: Because I’ve heard so many ones with the funk vibe now this is starting to be a little mediocre still very good Henry: Dude with the long hair
Fiona: It got hollow Henry: I feel like we are onethey’re making it warm in here Naoki: That was cool harmony there Ben: Yeah this guitar is also killin’ yeah Fiona: Gotta getcha getcha Henry: I all of a sudden this just kinda reminded me of the Saplings, that is also not true cause I’ve been listening to them like ALL the time Lindsey: I would suggest against playing basketball in vansBen: Okay the band is really good at this, really good at this, the bassist is PRETTY killin’ it Emiel: I want someone to just drain a 3 right now Fiona: Three pointerrrr
henry: THAT DUDE Jeremy: I really like the choreography, ohh and the video concept
Gwen: yeah Fiona: You’re gonna trip on those tennis balls, makin’ me nervous Kevin: Oh I like this bridge!!! yeah Gwen: It’s like, will you date me? Here’s a bagel Jeremy: Here’s a bagel? I would say yes, what?
Gwen: Absolutely Yunyi: I love that little… chiptune part
Kevin: yeah yeah Ben & Naoki: Oh! That’s his way of flirting Kevin: Oh oh that chord gets me…Emiel: Basketball, what a bonding experience Kevin: Then it goes there, which is also awesome Yunyi: Oh you know what? is this… in minor? Kevin: … yes Yunyi: Oh wow Henry: That man is my spirit animal Kevin: But then it goes to F a lot Fiona: I like that rapping Henry: Scoops Yunyi: It was so happy I though it was in major this whole time Kevin: Right? Both: Woahhhh gwen: she saidKevin: That’s VI that’s V, i and then V/VI or 5 of… yeah and then it goes back Yunyi: yeah how did they make it sound so happy Yunyi: I think it’s just the funk
Kevin: Yeah exactly Naoki: … are they all tryna ask her to prom or something? Henry: What
Fiona: Mansae mansae mansae AYE Davis: AYE AYE AYE
Lindsey: This is so cute, I really like this Kevin: Dang… uh huh
Yunyi: I would love to hear instrumental, like acoustic version of this Gwen: There was something way up there and it wasn’t even falsetto, well I’m sure it was but like
Jeremy: Yeah it was Gwen: STRONG
Jeremy: It was strong- really yeah Gwen: It was like
Jeremy: OMG they’re so cute, I thought she rejected him Yunyi:I’m pretty sure it’s this, pretty sure that’s what this symbol is Yunyi:… it says… 71 lol Jeremy: The melody was good, it was like catchy, it was catchy yeah it was very.. poppy? I liked it a lot Jeremy: I wasn’t paying attention to the background music but if it didn’t bother me I guess that’s good? Gwen: It was. so it was a pretty standard, almost like rhythm section but then there was just the electronic stuff just on top of it Gwen: Like I felt like they wrote the song for like piano and guitar and then they were like “now let’s make it a pop sensation” and they were like “add some synth!” Jeremy: I didn’t even hear the synth
Gwen: I’m sure it was there, I wasn’t listening for it but I’m sure it was there Lindsey: It was very unique, were there horns in there? It’s not like there was some trumpet? davis: I like the guitar Lindsey: It was really catchy but it wasn’t really like tooDavis: You know they found a way to like keep saying the same thing, but saying it differently Umu: So what’d you think about the music? Fiona: It was happy I really liked the rap dude and I like cotton candy hair Emiel: I like the groove, the beat was good henry: the dude with long hair was my spirit animal Fiona: There’s this one part where it got all hollow sounding likehenry: drums but not much bass…it was good
fiona: it was cool Ben: Chord progression wise I thought was pretty bland, it was pretty poppy Naoki: Yeah, I liked it though Ben: Yeah no it’s good! Like it’s catchy but you know, it was like… mildly predictable? Naoki and Umu:
Shimon:Umu: But otherwise the instrumentals…. Ben: Yeah the instrumentals were cool the bassist was killer, that bass line like his solos in the beginning and the middle were really good Shimon: Yeah I feel like when we speak in terms of music theory it doesnt necessarily mean that we like it or don’t like it… does that make sense? Naoki: Something can be plain and good ben: sometimes some of the subtlest cool cuz i think Ben: One of the hard things about pop is that it’s pretty simple, when you like look at it just sheet music wise but it’s because it’s like really refined to like Ben: The really basics to what makes it work cause it’s very easy once you take out some of those things for it to sound really awful Ben: So it’s super hard to write really catchy really good pop music but I.. yeah I think…
naoki: that was good Emiel: This is the best band I’ve seen by the way Henry: emiel has a stan now
Fiona: He’s gonna become a carat!!! I’m kind of a carrot Umu: ok! So the next one is gonna be a little unique, I’m trying out something new so seventeen is really known for their choreography cause their Everyone: THEY’RE REALLY GOOD Naoki: I wish I could dance like that Ben: DUDE so much
Naoki: I’d be like… DOPE Umu: And because it’s my number one favorite and also my number one favorite choreography Umu: I’m gonna be giving you so — so no one will hate me, so I’m gonna be giving you the option, do you wanna see the dance practice or the music video Umu: I originally planned for you guys to act on both but sadly I found out that I do not have time to react to like three whole videos— it just didn’t fit into my schedule Umu: But again this is a unique situation only because this is my favorite choreo of all time, I won’t be doing this for like every single reaction video for that Ben: Sure, yeah, we can just see the dance practice
Naoki and Shimon:Umu: Dance Practice? Fiona: Uh I’m gonna go with the second oneUmu: Are you guys okay with seeing the music video? Henry: Yeah let’s go for it!

Life goals Henry: who makes people explode Yunyi: woah Kevin: Oh the suspense, you know how to do it you know how it’s done! Yunyi: That falsetto! Ben: Big band feel, again Yunyi: Nice, this is what I say to this

Henry: “some people say dating is just dating” Henry: Why are they on a Piano, Piano’s aren’t for climbing they’re for playing! Fiona: Woman why are you on my piano Lindsey: Yeah they’re like omg they have a very very VERY strong sense of rhythm-all of them- it’s very clear in this it’s like Yunyi: Aw that was so sad
Kevin: what a bridge Kevin: It just feels like it keeps on changing
Yunyi: I get it I get it! Cause none of them can score lol Umu: … what Fiona: This girl is like, she’s vibey lol

Ben:Kevin: OMG forget butterflies in my stomach more like my chest turns into a pillow and then it explodes feathers Gwen: yeah

Emiel: Just a lot of— Everyone: OH WHAT WHAT WHAT Jeremy: he disappeared….into flames…
Gwen: oh what Everyone:
Fiona: Kpop in a nutshell henry: WOW THAT WAS GREAT! BAH! Gwen: everyone just disappears in kpop Yunyi: This is so good Ben:Lindsey: Awwww that was so good
Davis:Umu: So you were definitely a lot into the dance Davis: Yeah I’m glad that we watched the dance
Umu: were you able to also focus on the music? Davis: yeah
Lindsey: I focus more on the music in relation to the dance but Lindsey: But I did focus on the music like DAVIS: i was noticing how they go together so well I like the background like the beats, the way the beats move with the dance
Davis: Yeah I would say the beats too Davis: The melody was very impressive, their singing was very impressive
Lindsey: and the brass was pretty cool too Umu: So I saw you guys caught how it changed right before every chorus every single time Both: yes umu: YES Umu: that was like my favorite thing Kevin: And right after the first chorus there’s this section where it’s just likeand you know that hasn’t appeared before Kevin: It’s like they’re more, because as I said like right from the beginning I can tell it was very layered and the layering of the instrumentals was very good Kevin: and there was a section where like all you hear was theand then there was singing, so it became much thinner, it’s all about how there’s three things and much more sparse it was and it worked very nicely Kevin: and how like the chorus with all the brass they’re kind of just doing like parallel octaves and so it’s very different from that big full sound of the verse and when everythingand it’s very funky it just works super well Yunyi: Just watching this word vomit in front of me
Umu: yeah lol Umu: Does Yunyi have any word vomit? Yunyi: … nice Umu: What’d you like about this one musically?
Emiel: Same thing as the last one
Henry: Pretty straightforward
Fiona: I like when the guitar does thefiona: like that menanananeh sound in guitars idk what the term for that is but I like it Emiel: They kind of added like a brass synth to it actually, it kind of sounded like, like electronic brass Henry: Yeah, they could’ve easily used real instruments to play it…but ya know
Emiel and Fiona:Jeremy: I liked the brass, I thought that was so cool b/c its not like any of the other songs we’ve watched Jeremy: I really liked the music video I thought it was really cool and the dancing is like amazing Umu: Are you glad you watched the music video?
Both: Yeah Jeremy: Oh now I know what you’re talking about! With the exploding hearts and the confetti! Umu: yeah lol
Jeremy: I like that yeah I like that Gwen: Again, it looked like they were just getting shot cause there would be like just a hole umu: it was like an elegant … puff Gwen: Tag yourself I’m an elegant puff Umu: You gotta look straight—
