Itzy

Current mood:

I saw Itzy’s debut single, Dalla Dalla. I have a soft spot for Ryujin since she appeared in Mix Nine but I’m not a fan of their style and music. I guess I’ll wait for their music and style to mature a little bit more.

Treasure 13 X Melvin Timtim

Current mood:

YG’s new boy group is called Treasure 13. Three of the members released a dance video with Melvin Timtim. While I like the fact that YG is trying to imbibe more authentic dancing into this group by inviting famous dancers to teach these boys, I’m not that impressed with this piece. Perhaps because YG tends to focus on the swag more than the actual dance that it looks a bit lazy.

U[유] with ONF @ Idol Radio

Current mood:

Here are my favorite parts.

This freestyle segment U and Wyatt did at Idol Radio last night was awesome. It was so entertaining. It was obvious that Yuto has a good feel of the beat and has more experience with freestyle but still not a lot I guess. His go-to moves are so cute. My favorite part was after Wyatt krumped the first time, Yuto was like “Don’t me” and then killed it.

Let me end this post with this action shot.

Overkill?

Current mood:

I drowned in ONF content today. While I’m very happy to be flooded with quality Yuto content, I thought it might be a bit of an overkill. I was finding it hard to fully appreciate each one because I had to hop on and off from one content to the other. I think it’s a marketing strategy to hit everyone with everything everywhere all at once to increase the chances of at least one of those avenues to reach more people. However, for a fan who follows everything and sort of collects every available content, this day was draining. It took away all my energy emotionally, mentally and physically. It hypes you up and tries to sustain you up there for a long time. You can imagine the how tiring that gets after a while. Personally though, I think it might be counterproductive to up too many content simultaneously because it kind of spreads out the views across different content instead of accumulating views for the MV itself. Maybe they can argue that they’re trying to catch people’s attention everywhere in the hopes that the “other” content will lead the viewer to check out the MV. Again, I don’t really know how that works. But of course, at the end of the day, I know a lot of work has been put into all these. I can’t thank ONF and the WM staff enough for their hard work. I’m sure things will work out.

Okay, enough analyzing and more loving…

This color and collar type suits Yuto well.

U is today’s Show Champion ending fairy! ✨😊 He got 10 seconds of close up time.💖

They also released a U solo cam, which I love because it’s perfect for learning Yuto’s parts in the dance. Speaking of dance, one of the ONF events is a We Must Love Dance Cover contest hosted by 1theK. A part of me really wants to participate (My heart was literally pounding when the announcement came out.) but I don’t have a group and you already know I’m a coward considering Yuto will see it for sure. Maybe I should try doing a dance cover of Yuto’s parts, then prepare a Youtube debut.🤣 Maybe I’ll do a dance cover but I won’t join the contest so Yuto won’t see it.😆

WM also posted behind-the-scenes footage of the album jacket photoshoot. Yuto is so handsome.😍
