Infinite is in love

The moment you all have been waiting for is finally here! Infinite made their comeback and I'm pretty sure is the most anticipated comeback! Inspirits must have gone crazy waiting for them, that's why they gave them an awesome present as well : An All-Kill on music charts! But Infinite didn't come with empty hands either.
Infinite came back with the release of their 4th mini album 'New Challenge'. I think the title describes both their return as also their new songs. This time around, our seven boys are in love and they are not afraid to tell it, show it, sing it and dance to it, since the title track they chose is called 'Man In Love'. And we are happy to see them that way, as they show their love to inspirits!
If you try to find what beat and rhythm, happiness, optimism and joy would might have, they will sound as this track. As you press the play button, first you won't regret it and second you will filled with overwhelming happy feelings while tears of joy will cover your face. I might overreacting but it's the truth.
The mv has the same impact as the boys have. To fell in love with them over again. ( As we need a reason for that ). The plot, the dancing, the vivid and bright colors, represent the song flawlessly. We see each one member being involved into something. Dongwoo is writing a love letter or poem, SungJong finds a cute kitty in front of his door ( I don't know who is more adorable SungJong or the kitty ) and decides to take her inside while he's trying to find out what to wear, L is defimitely lost in love as all he can think about is love, Sungyeol is cooking, Hoya is trying to buy something for his girlfriend, Sunggyu is setting up a beautiful scenery and Woohyun goes to a kindergarten to practice his piano skills, as he wants to compose a song. Funniest moments of the mv will be when Hoya is lost in the department store, looking desperately around to find something nice while he's trying out shoes and a bag ( at least he takes some time and does and effort ), Woohyun stare Sungyeol because he stole his piano post, L going to the Infinite University - every inspirits' dream - and when Woohyun is beaten up by the children. 

No need to talk about the choreography since Infinite has a master degree on that. Excellent and synchronized performance also this time. At the beginning of the song Hoya and Dongwoo are showing their crazy dance skills and I like that L is also an up front dancer. The backgrounds are amazing. Heaven meets reality. First they dance in what it looks like a cloudy, heavenly set and later they dance in a modern studio. At this point may say that they look so handsome in suits! Those edgy, black and dark blue suits make them irresistible.
In the end we see the boys results. Dongwoo finished his letter and sent it away, the kitty helped SungJong what to wear, L realized is not bad to be in love because everyone around him is also in love, Sungyeol made fortune cookies, Hoya found a lovely necklace, Sunggyu decorated the place and Woohyun gained confidence playing the piano.
The breathtaking individual close ups were made for one reason only. To choose which one you will be in love with!

High expectation on Girl's Day

It seems Girls' Day is gonna be the second girl group I write on March and the reason why is simple. Their comeback is amazing and they brought on the table a different concept and image. Good enough reasons for me.
Girls' Day released their 1st full length album 'Expectation' which is also the title track. Dai5yz must had high expectations for their comeback too and it seems that Girls' Day didn't disappoint them. 'Expectation' is an upbeat - dance song and once you listen to it, you will probably dance and sing along 'woo hoo woo hoo'. Apart from the title track the album contains some other worth listening songs too. Check 'Easy Go' - personal favorite - if your mood is up and you need another reason to go even higher or 'I Don't Mind' if you craving for ballad. In the album you will also find some previous hits like 'Don't Forget Me', 'Oh My God' and more.
Let's return to 'Expectation' and its music video. First of all although the song tells about a girl who is determined to catch the boy she wants and to change him from being a palyboy to a good boy, in the mv the plot is kinda different. We see Yura being with her boyfriend, sharing some cute moments together but later she finds out that he is cheating on her. She thinks how she used to be when they first met, an innocent girl, and so she decides to change and becomes more fierce in order to teach him a lesson. In that case she shows her new self to him and ends the relationship. 
The song, the mv and the choreography show how new and improve Girls' Day is now since their debut. From being cute, now they are more mature. The dance shows how you can be seductive without being too sexy. The black and red combination looks great and I think it's clever that they use the suspenders while they are dancing. The background is simple : black with red/yellow lighting or white but it highligths all the right points and it doesn't steal the attention from the girls.
As the Girls say : Everyday Girls' Day! Not an obvious reason to change that!

D-Unit shows a different face

It's been a while since I wrote about a girl group, B.A.P, Nu'Est and Teen Top didn't allow anyone else to steal their spotlight, but now I have a good reason to return to girl groups. That is D-Unit's new song 'Talk To My Face'.
D-Unit made their comeback with their second album 'Affirmative Chapter 1' but they also had a big change in the group. Along with Ujin, Zin and Ram, we salute the new member JNEY (former member of GP Basic). Also producer of the title track was Zico from Block B! Now that's what I call an ACE! Zico you should definitely produce more songs! I like that in the beginning we get to listen Zico's voice and his characteristic 'Brraaa' in the middle of the song. Solid artist, solid song.
Now back to our girls and the mv. The mv portrays two things : Friendship and love. We see a guy, Ujin's boyfriend, to completely ignore her calls because apparently sleeping and reading magazines are better things to do instead of being with your girlfriend. Ujin discovers that he ignores her, so she and her friends go to his house and bullying him. Girls' power! Later, Ujin gets more upset as she sees that her boyfriend is not wearing his couple ring and thus she leaves. Up until now we all assume that her boyfriend is an idiot and the best option for her is to leave him. But it seems that he has a good heart after all as he realizes that it's their anniversary and with the help of her friends, they organize a surprise party. And as for his ring, he decided it was better to wear it as a necklace, so no worries Ujin.
The choreography, the outfits and the beat of the song are amazing! The outfits have more color and they are more girly compare to 'Luv Me' and 'Missing You' but not too much though. D-Unit manages to keep their identity by making little changes in their appearances. As for the choreography it has nice moves and flow and my favorite movement is at the 'look at me' part or 'the searching dance' 
All you have to do is press click and talk to their faces!
