Lead single "One Day" is beautifully nostalgic, lead vocalist Shownu bringing an especially divine depth to the simple refrain "Maybe I'll, maybe I'll see you one day, one day, one day, I will." It is a straightforward song, but one that feels particularly poignant following two years off from touring during the pandemic - for fans, it is undoubtedly going to be a tearjerker. "You Problem" comes in as an immediate contrast - it has a bold, funky beat that immediately makes you want to dance. Main vocalist Kihyun shines from the very first line through to the song's close.
Ever since its inception, K-Pop has had an eye on international success. Its integration into the global mainstream is a diplomatic coup for South Korea, and hence subtle mimicry abounds. Gangnam Style is reminiscent of Swedish House Mafia and David Guetta productions, BTS' Euphoria bears striking resemblance to The Chainsmokers' Something Just Like This.
