Leaderboard Evolution:

We have to say goodbye to ONF’s lone entry for this year’s rate, Runaway a b-side from their surprise special album released during the group’s enlistment, which they had recorded beforehand. Hmm… I can understand why the title track wasn’t picked, but I’m not super into this one either. The production is good as usual, but this was one of the songs I had the most difficulty committing to memory during my listening period. @enjoy (6) also thinks it’s “A bit boring... Can't help but feel like the other groups made this song but a lot better.” Now I’m curious to know which groups/songs you mean!

Boy Booster @nikkysan (9), who surprisingly didn’t give this his 11, comments: “This is a fairly standard uptempo track for ONF until the bridge comes in… *spongebob_levitating.gif*” This part also gets a shout out from @MmmDani (8) “The bridge is delicious.” @chrisjche (9) points to the instrumental: “This was a standout in the playlist for me - love the strings and overall has a great groove!” The string section was definitely a very inspired choice! They should have built on it a little longer.

@boom bazooka joe (7) says: “Bad verses, great chorus. I enjoy ONF so much as as group of vocalists though that I always enjoy even their mid songs more than if it was by a less capable group.” The second verse is pretty bad, but I love the section of build-up to the chorus… which I don’t think is that great. Our forum’s representative FUSE @Wills (9.75) praises the track: “Initially seemed a bit generic by their standards, but ONF on autopilot is still better than what pretty much anyone else had to offer” I respect that statement!

UGH... my baby doll. So pretty!! His personality makes him even more adorable, and I love his voice. I think he's basically tied with Yeonjun for my ultimate K-Pop bias? We talked about noses a few times in these reveals, but he's definitely the one to beat in that category fff And the girlies who follow SKBUMS will know that's not his only strong asset. His unusual name comes from his father's German family name and Bahá’í religion (gg stans might recognize a similar name and face among the Kep1er members)

This reveals means Thursday's Child still has further to go as it does not accompany a TXT elimination.


OK!

I wanted Candy gone as well so I'll take all of these eliminations thank you but I will have Dr. Ian next.
 
@Replay you're next.






You can't stop winning, it seems!

Nooo, I have to be a hater again! But I promise this is the last time for this rate, as lucky for me I really like every song in the Top 10. I don’t know what it is but I really don’t care for this type of song… it feels like a mile a minute, which normally I’d love, but there are too many switch ups and despite the heavy focus on vocals I can’t get into the melodies and they kinda play second fiddle to everything going on around them in the production. I do like the electric guitar moments, though. @Salami (8) comments on that: “It almost went a bit metal (As metal as K-pop can be) towards the end, great switch up.”

@boom bazooka joe (6) joins me in sipping a bit of haterade: “I'd have to look back, but I kind of think I've never given a great score to a single Golden Child song. I have nothing against them -- but their music does nothing for me. The first 10 seconds of this song is great though!” The vocal is vocaling in that part for sure! I think I have liked some of their songs but I’m too tired to go check right now fkfkk

Most of you seemed to really enjoy Replay though. @nikkysan (8.5) thinks it’s “Better than 85% of boy group offerings this year but #JusticeForKnockingOnMyDoor” Agree to disagree, bestie! @Slice of Life (10) says “its kinda super flawless????? wig!!”. @chrisjche (9.5) compares it to their 2nd gen label mates: “A fun one, reminds me of INFINITE in the best way.” I know a bunch of you guys must be excited for their comeback! @enjoy (8.5) enjoys: “First time listening them and yeah, i quite like this song. The chorus is a bit of a moment.”

@Untouchable Ace (9) gave it a great score but only dragged it in the commentary! “I played this a bit around release but coming back to it has made me realise it doesn't punch hard enough, especially for a prison (just a prison for twinks i guess.) The inspiration genres from probably dated 2011 synth effects to soft metal guitar strums don't enhance the hook enough.” And last but not least, @Attis (10) calls it: “Tron sci-fi battle realness, yes maam” I liked it better when DRIPPIN did it, teebs!

It's Jackson Wang from China! Looking at older videos of him in GOT7 it's kinda funny to see him transition from a fuckboy image to clean-cut prince charming and now to a sort of eccentric rockstar persona. And he pulls them all off! I think he exudes hotness even when he looks a bit disheveled and crazy, fight me ffff And ever since going solo for real he has surprised us with a pretty diverse and solid discography. I'm a big fan!

What do we think?? Once again, there's a game to see who can most accurately guess the Top 10 elimination order, with a little reward: the user who makes the most accurate prediction will have a guaranteed spot to Boy Boost™ a song in next year's rate. Predictions should be posted in this thread x

I love counting twice.

Prediction:

#10
Icarus | RoaD-B -
Thursday's Child Has Far To Go | TXT -
Ballroom Extravaganza | DPR Ian -
Du Du Du | Tan -
Maniac | Stray Kids -
Silence | Drippin -
Blow | Jackson Wang -
Eye On You | Wonho -
Dice | Onew -
Another Life | Key -
#1
 
Genuinely surprised (and happy!) with how many soloist songs are in the top 10!

Anyway, if God is good (and you know she won't be!) this will be the top 10 order:

10. DU DU DU
9. Icarus
8. Silence
7. Another Life
6. Blow
5. Eye On You
4. Ballroom Extravaganza
3. Maniac
2. Thursday's Child
1. Dice

But as long as Silence, Icarus, and DU DU DU go next, I'd be pretty happy with any order for the remaining 7.
