[Review] The Fierce Comebacks (Part 2)
Read full list here.
2014 is indeed a busy year for the K-Pop industry. The first half of the year was full of fierce returns of the famous of the famous in the music scene. And the second half even got more intense with more of your favourites one by one appearing with their teasers. Here are some short reviews of some of the releases of this year’s second half.
Check out this link for the review of some of the releases during this year’s first half.
“Last Romeo” & “Back” by Infinite
Between Last Romeo and Back, I favour the former better. It’s the signature product you get from Infinite. And I adore it. It’s as catchy as The Chaser. Although the MV is just mostly a dance video with a little story in between, I still dig this production from Infinite. Just like B1A4 and now with Infinite, I think K-Pop acts should just do the craft where they’re best at. In this case, Infinite is with the likes of Last Romeo.
About the MV, since I like books, I tend to appreciate anything that has do with them. So, I like that chasing game in the library with Woohyun even though I don’t think that the library setting has anything to do with the song at all.
Anyway, unlike Last Romeo, I’m not so much captured with Back. It’s more ballad-y and as you might have already figured out, if it’s from Infinite, I like them better with strong performances. Though the MV for Back is pretty much dramatic, the kind that I would like, I still root for Last Romeo because the song is more appealing to me. Plus, honestly I don’t understand why the female cameo in Back has to be a little girl. But creativity-wise, I think Back’s MV is more imaginative and interesting.
P.S. Infinite is that group where I tend to like almost all of the members.
