Few things I want to say about this video and the group:
1. I think it's a great idea to take some of the best dancers and put them in a group together but what I think they should have done was make an all male group and an all female group rather than five guys and one girl thrown in there, cause she looks completely out of place.
2. This feels like an EXO music video. Cause EXO is usually wearing sparkly, white, gold, silver, grey, and black clothing, the wardrobe choices make this music video feel like EXO members are featuring others. Though they kept with EXO colors, I'm very happy that they stayed within each of the dancers' styles. Henry's outfit looked like something he would wear as did Taemin's. Kai and Luhan wear those type of clothes in their music videos. Eunhyuk... okay not so much with his outfit but I still love him. And I have no idea if Hyoyeon would wear that.The dance style is also very EXO-esque. They tend to do sharp jerky movements and this dance was packed with those moves. I'm not complaining too much cause I do like EXO's dance style but it felt a little wrong to watch the fluid Taemin and smooth Eunhyuk dance harshly.
3. It's a little odd to hear Luhan and Henry, two Chinese speakers, sing in Korean. They did a good job, I think, but their accents were funny, but very cute, and that's nothing against them but I'm so used to hearing them sing in Chinese that this threw me off a little.
4. Kai and Taemin both have a very similar face shape, body type, similar voices, they did their hair the same, and dressed them in very similar shades. See a problem? Yeah, difficult to tell them apart in this video. Not impossible, but at first glance you might be a little confused.
5. Notice that Eunhyuk is Super Junior's rapper, Henry is one of Super Junior-M's rappers, Kai is one of EXO-K's rappers, Luhan is one of EXO-M's rappers(he is also one of their main singers though), Taemin doesn't exactly rap but he isn't really a singer for SHINee, I'm not sure about Hyoyeon but from this video I'd say she's more of a rapper than a singer... So you get six rappers/dancers together and you get a rap/dance video. I actually really liked this video, to the point where I've probably added about fifty views to it. I liked the dancing, I loved the song/rapping, I loved all the members, sort of for Hyoyeon, but I'm curious if this is going to be a permanent group or if this was a one time thing and if it is a permanent thing, will they'll only do rap songs?
P.s I'm totally digging Taemin's hair. When on Earth did you go from beautiful and cute to super hot and gorgeous? And Kai's scream at :029? Loved that. By the way Kai, I totally saw that you tried to sneak in showing us your stomach at 2:58. Eunhyuk, how dare you let another person show off their abs while you don't? Slacker. ;)
I really want them to do a dance only version of this song!!!!!!!
So here is Younique's Music Video for their new song "Maxstep". How do you guys feel about this group?
