Time for another Best of Weekly Music Shows! IN2IT, Snuper, and Lovelyz showed off their new comeback songs. Berrygood Heart Heart made their debut as a sub-unit. Everyone has different styles, and it’s good to see them expanding their musical prowess.
It’s also good when idols can add more trophies to their collection. VIXX won on SBS The Show while Twice swept up the rest on Mnet M! Countdown, MBC Show Champion and Show! Music Core, SBS Inkigayo, and KBS Music Bank. Congratulations!
I selected a few of my favorite performances to share. If you’d like to contribute your own picks, feel free in the comments below.
Can‘s “Spring Days of My Life”, KBS Music Bank, April 27, 2018
Yes, we’re going to listen to trot again! Don’t fight this magical Korean force! It’s old school, cheesy, and classic. Smiling comes naturally when you’re watching these two men enjoying their stage. The pastel suits are great as well. They look like a strawberry banana milkshake together, adding to the bright nostalgia of their performance.
Lovelyz’ “Watercolor”, KBS Music Bank, April 27, 2018
This group sounds as good as their name with their vibrant harmonies. The pink-toned set enhances the atmosphere with a sense of romance and joy. The fuchsia fog lends a magical touch to the floral backdrop. Everything, including their simple outfits and light choreo, contributes to the vibe of this song. It really is a painting come to life.
The Rose‘s “Baby”, MBC Show! Music Core, April 28, 2018
Have you ever looked into an idol’s eyes and realize how much they love what they do? If you watch this stage of The Rose, you might be able to see what I’m talking about. They’re so intense when they perform. Even though this song is quite a departure from their last one, there’s no awkwardness in the transition to a different sound. For this reason and more, I look forward to all of their performances.
Snuper’s “Tulips”, MBC Show Champion, April 25, 2018
Another group trying different styles is Snuper. With this song, they’re entering the mature phase of a K-pop group. The suits become slicker as the dance moves become smoother. My favorite part is the opening with their hands representing a flower in bloom. It’s cool watching the pictures they create with their formations and bodies.
VIXX’s “Scentist”, MBC Show Champion, April 25, 2018
I shouldn’t need to explain this one. Just look at them. This has got to be my favorite style on them so far. The always tight pants, the loose white shirts, and the leather suspenders boost their sexy perfumers image. It doesn’t matter that the set is bare because the group possesses a strong stage presence. Any group with a powerful aura will stand out regardless of what’s around them.
