    Same here! My favorite was Mystic White’s performance. The other ones were kind of boring for me.

  • itsmysunshine

    Yes, pretty disappointed with Dramatic Blue’s song. With a line-up of powerful vocalists, they sure can do better than this. Oh, and the blue costume.. it’s just plain ugly. 

    I was pretty surprised with Jinwoon in Dynamic Black, but happy with the end result. The stage performance was really nice too. I really like the opening drama for Dynamic Black (oooh, bloody tears!)

    I prefer Mystic White’s song than Dazzling Red’s too, but both stages were so boring :| I know that nothing much can be done for Mystic White’s stage (although maybe some backup dancers wouldn’t hurt), but I expected more flame from Dazzling Red (Hyuna is there! Nana! Hyosung!!). 

    Nevertheless, I’d give points for SBS for the effort. I especially like the BTS videos lol.

     Mystic White’s song was my favorite as well, which I wasn’t expecting with a title like “Mermaid Princess.” What I did like about Dramatic Blue though was their opening sequence where the members acted out scenes with an on-screen girl.

  • gulagula

    I second this. at first i actually pretty much disappointed with all tracks, believing that they are maybe kept by the producers as filler tracks for their upcoming clients album, or maybe some scraps that they still yet to throw into the dustbin. Yesterday sounds more like a less-aggressive version of B2ST’s Shock, This Person is like the prototype version of Sistar’s Alone before undergone a whole reconstruction, and Tearfully Beautiful… /lesigh/ This is like my first ever disappointment with the Duo-Producer, Ive always love SweeTune’s production but this time, no.

    It takes me a few listens to Mermaid Princess because i think it is less inspiring and no dramatic elements that give u an instant pull. But hey, Ive to say this song is one of my favorite now, it grows on me along with Yesterday. Ive few complaints about Yesterday too, the singers sound tired and forced to sing it? imo uhuh, dont kill me but Hoya really surprised me. He, my bias sings the 1st chorus yo. And i really like LJoe’s rap, its sad and effortless at the same time.  

    a/n: Tearfully Beautiful didn’t survive long in my playlist tho. I think Im over it at the 5th spin.

    i just wonder why the songs are so generic…
    maybe it’s because the producers took the money from SBS for producing track but they are getting more from entertainment companies?
    so they saved the unique songs for those who pay more…

    The only gripe I had with this whole project was that SBS showed so much BTS stuff about each group that it cut into the song durations many of the other performers. So many had to perform cut songs, and even the sunbaes only performed one song, when they usually would perform 2 or even 3 songs.

    i agree with you about the overall mediocrity of the singles. i personally loved the girls’ songs way more than the boys’ but on their side, i preferred tearfully beautiful than yesterday. but then again, i listened little to all of them.

    as for the live performances [i'll only comment on the the girls'], most of the girls lip-synched as usual, but “mystic white” won me over with their charisma, while i think the “dazzling red” choreography was harmed by that weird outfit – however hyuna’s stage presence felt the best there.

    i really like the song of Dynamic Black especially Jinwoon’s voice. the song of Dazzling red was so Sistar-ish also the dance. i don’t think Nana gave anything to make it better, just her face. :) i also expected some ballad song for Dramatic Blue. the Mystic White was just plain boring.

    I think it’s funny that for me, Mystic White was the group I had anticipated the least yet turned out to be my favorite. I’m not one to fall easily for the cutesy, but this song is really infectious.

    I can also say that Dazzling Red’s song was my least favorite. I’ve never been a fan of Brave Brothers and this song only reminded me why. Not even Hyorin could save this one.

    I was a bit disappointed in Dramatic Blue because I felt they could have given more, not just vocal wise but performance wise. Though their song is far from being a favorite of mine, I understand why they went with it rather than with a strong ballad piece. They wanted something cheery and light for the holidays I suppose.

    I loved Dynamic Black’s performance and though their song wasn’t awe inspiring, the combination of singers proved to be enough to keep my interest. For most of them not being spotlight singers in their respective groups, listening to them here was something different. I quite enjoyed it.

  • AcadiasFire

    I honestly wasn’t anticipating any of the girl group songs at all but Mystic Whites turned out to be my favorite followed by Dynamic Blacks song, then Dazzling Red and finally Dramatic Blues being last.

    Mystic White’s song was definitely my favorite.  I knew I was going to love it when I heard a snippet of it from their bts video

    I was definitely disappointed with Dramatic Blue’s song – which felt like a song Boyfriend would do in their pre-Janue days.  My favorites are Dynamic Black and Mystic White – both the songs and in how the groups seem like an actual group rather than a project group. Dazzling Red’s song sounded too much like a more boring version of Sistar’s Alone.

    Who else thinks the naming is sort of off?  Dramatic Blue was less dramatic but more cute and happy.  Dynamic Black was super dramatic.  I felt Mystic White was more dazzling and Dazzling Red more mystic.

    Opinion time!

    For songs, I unexpectedly liked Mystic White’s song the most. It has an interesting arrangement that makes it a repeatable song. However, the overall concept for the stage looked too “stiff” for such a fun song. Maybe because of the title, they had to make do with that look but it could have been so much better.

    For the performance, Dynamic Black’s song was the one that pulled me in the most. Though the song isn’t really something that I enjoyed as a single, I loved their stage a lot because of how well the members mixed well. They looked and performed like a real group, not a collab project. And given the time frame and their busy schedules, I give them mad props for the overall product.

    Dramatic Blue’s and Dazzling Red’s songs had so much potential given the members and the composers they were going to work with but both songs and performances felt flat compared to the other 2 groups. 

    I think instead of Blue being a ballad group with all the main vocalists, they looked more like a “cute & sweet” type of group. Which could be the case but the Dramatic bit threw me off so idk. The stage was alright because they sang great but it could have been better. One thing I found out is that Dongmin’s choreographs will only really work for a certain group. Or that the others are just not used to his style that the moves looked weak instead of sharp. 

    For Red, the song sounded like Alone 2.0 done wrong. The performance was passable. They even had a stronger stage presence as compared to White but it couldn’t really save the sloppy execution of the whole number sadly.

    As of right now though, Red’s song charts the highest in Melon:

    #9 – This Person – Dazzling Red
    #26 – Yesterday – Dynamic Black
    #39 – Mermaid Princess – Mystic White
    #40 – Tearfully Beautiful – Dramatic Blue

    guess this means im the only one that liked Dramatic Blue then?
    I like the chorus of the song the most. I didnt have any huge expectation from any group but the others just didnt do it for me

    I thought pretty much the same. I was so eager for Dynamic Blue because I like Jokwon, GO and Woohyun; however…the song…was rather lacking. I was expecting a powerful ballad as well (I’m a ballad fan, and kpop doesn’t emphasize ballads enough these days).  I don’t usually like the “happy” songs, so it really wasn’t my style. 
    But this was redeemed with Dynamic Black. I love their song. I too expected something faster pace to highlight their dancing ability.  Love Jinwoon in it. To me, I’ve always thought Hoya has decent vocals. I noticed this in Infinite. He’s my second favourite vocally after Woohyun, even though he’s labelled as a rapper. Dynamic Red – I remember Hyorin stuck out the most vocally. And I thought that Hyuna and Hyorin danced well (some other members were a bit stiff).

    I also really liked the concept, but I also kept my expectations somewhat low. These are all idols from different groups; they’re not going to have much time to work together on this, and it’s a one-time thing. The performance and songs just need to be “good enough”, which I think they are. I think Blue and Red’s songs were nothing spectacular, just average – but I was impressed with Black and White. I think the concept of the “color” performances is fresh, but at the same time, after seeing it executed,  it’s a bit limiting.
    Also, these idols are all stars more or less within their respective groups. Taken out of the groups, they compete with other idols, and I feel like these idols share a similar playing field with a different dynamic that actually detracts from the “supergroup” aspect overall. 

    Either way, I got two songs I enjoy out of this, and I’d consider that a success in its own right. Sometimes we need to remember that Kpop is just a genre of music, and at the end of the day, there’s nothing wrong with having a good song and setting aside any minor baggage it may carry.

    I guess without this article I wouldn’t have came to the realization that yes, I guess the overall hype of this awesome project was kinda a downer.

    I’ll admit I was also looking really forward to Dramatic Blue’s performance they had all powerful vocals (and they included my bias Yoseob). I recieved a more fun and playful feeling than the labeled “Dramatic”.

    But my favorite song was Dynamic Black’s Yesterday. And I disagreed with you on the addition of Jinwoon, I do not believe he was added solely on vocal support but the mere fact that 2AM was one of the groups included in the project and there wasn’t a dancer or a designated rapper in that group, so I think he was just kinda picked. Cause I know that Hoya, Kikwang and Joon are good enough to hold a 4 minute song.

    I can’t say I liked or hated any of the girl group songs, they matched the title given to the groups, but I think I was expecting more from Dazzling Red, cause of Hyorin’s vocals and Hyuna’s fame. I do remember I thought the performance was so lacklaster for a group that was stamped “SEXY”. I thought the dance move was to subtle or they should have had outfits that didn’t hinder them.

    I can’t remember anything that stuck out to me for the Mystic White.

    But hey, I thought this end-of-the-year performance was the BEST, and WELL-PREPRARED/PLANNED, so I’ll still look forward to more, whether it was downer or not, cause I believed they tried and dared.

    In America and England I remember in the 70′s super groups being formed and most were just a disappointment. Probably due to over expectations. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young being the exception. Great groups cannot be synthesized, they just happen on their own spontaneously. I am always impressed with all the work that K-Pop brings to music and fashion and is to be honored. I agree with general consensus – Mystic White.
