In the best K-Pop news of the year, JYP Entertainment has announced that Miss A will be making its comeback on November 6th, a whole year after their last all too brief comeback in “I Don’t Need a Man”.
I is pleased.
Miss A is set to make their comeback on November 6 with a song created by famous composer E-Tribe, who is known for works such as Girls’ Generation‘s “Gee,” Lee Hyori‘s “U-Go Girl,” and more.
On this day, miss A will release their second studio album ‘Hush‘ for their first comeback in a year since they promoted “I Don’t Need a Man” in 2012.
It appears JYP Entertainment had been starting a policy since last year that allowed their singers to promote not only J.Y. Park’s compositions but also other works as their title songs.
On the one hand, it’s nice that JYP himself has seemingly loosened up somewhat and maybe every single Miss A song won’t have to start off with a whisper of “JYP” which only manages to incept that man’s mug into the minds of listeners instead of Fei’s legs.
And yet on the other, I can’t say that I would prefer to hear a song produced by E-Tribe over one composed by JYP. Part of it is definitely “Better the devil you know” but part of it is also the fact that E-Tribe’s track record is decidedly… cute. Like sickly sweet cute. “Gee” is a plague on K-Pop which influenced the genre for far too long and “U-Go-Girl” may be the most regrettable thing that Lee Hyori has ever done. “Yayaya” is one of T-ara’s most irritating efforts, and Dal Shabet has failed to grab me in any meaningful way, of which E-Tribe is responsible for pretty much all their singles. Hopefully, E-Tribe is able to do Miss A justice in all of their sexy glory, but I’m not holding my breath.
On the other, other hand, Miss A coming back means the return of Wang Fei Fei and with that, the accompanying track could just be the sound of a wet fart for three minutes and it would still be the best thing since the last time that Fei deigned the world with her presence.
