A Pink is making a comeback on July 16th, and, instead of slowly leaking one photo of each member at separate times to annoyingly and futilely try to maximize hype, the group decided to release a group shot as well as each individual teaser all at once.
It also looks like the group is getting ready to make that Girl’s Day-ian shift to a slightly sexier concept than
what has kept me from being that interested in the group before the oh-so-sweet concepts that they’ve done in the past.
However, the summer urban-hipster attire and the use of a shipyard as a background does look awfully similar to a certain music video that was released on July 1st (that I will review tomorrow). Hopefully, as awesome as shipyards are as backdrops in music videos (shout out to Tinashe’s “All Hands on Deck“) and as great as K-Pop idols can make the most mismatched and painfully colorful of outfits look, A Pink will be able to do something a little unexpected with their comeback as this year’s girl group summer releases are already starting to bleed together in my head.
Given the long and proud history of K-Pop teasers, these photos may have absolutely nothing to do with their upcoming music video, so this could be much ado about nothing.
On that note, good lawd Naeun and Bomi.
