    Ooooooh boy.

    So... This song. Haha. Hm. Composed by e.one (NOOOOOO!!! The ultimate betrayal) and somebody called LEL, Hurry Up is track 5 on the excellent EP 'WJ Please?'. Okay, so @Wills close your eyes because I'm gonna give my opinion on the song.

    Well. If you know me, you know I hate anything that sounds old-timey, which is why I actively dislike MAMAMOO's gramophone-friendly chansons and only tolerate them when they wear their ethnic-hip hat. Hurry Up's intro is absolutely heinous. The farty instrument in the background together with those vocalizations are my worst nightmare in musical form. Its only saving grace and the reason why I didn't give it a terrible score is the chorus, which is honestly very good and catchy. Everything else, mama... It's garbage.

    Lyrically, it's about a girlie waiting for someone to make their move and getting impatient. Not much to say, it's cute, a bit naughty and fits the song well. Yeah. Ok bye!!!

    @Wills (10) : Misunderstood masterpiece! I can understand the tacky intro turning people off, but it’s long erased from my memory by the time the chorus takes flight.

    @thommyh (6.25) : Getting major 'mamamoo - recipe' vibes from this :\

    @KimLippington (5.25) :

    @Charles Vingt-†rois (4) : what a mood killer

  3. I sometimes forget just how much they've dabbled with the swing-heavy, jazz-y, retro, brassy lounge sound… This is fine, definition of a 6-7 scorer.

    I did give it a 6.5 so… guess I can’t complain too much.
  5. According to our expertly made spreadsheet, it should be a little while before it loses another song! Which brings me to my next question… Which album is gonna lose a song next? Huh? Huh?? What do you guys want us to cut?

    The worst WJSN song! The way I would've given it a 2, if I weren't a host. Good riddance. Rip in piss you doodoo song.
  7. wait, e.one had a hand in this??? Arrest ha!

    fff I cannot at this song having two extra performances for it, and literally every other boppy b-side they have has virtually nothing except a fan recording from a one-off concert. Maybe @Wills won?
  8. *rolls the dice*

    Time for Kiss Your Lips to go

    You asked for it! You wanted it! 'Would You Kiss Me?' off of 'The Secret' received its answer and it was "no"!

    Written by Kim Kyung and Robin and composed by the latter, the song starts as a fairly standard cutesy song but swiftly switches to a trappy girl crush section with drunk dirty talk by Xuan Yi proclaiming that she's seeing stars. Maybe she should lay off the booze a bitsy?
    It reverts back to saccharine verses and choruses in beautiful pure Apink/Oh My Girl/early SNSD fashion. I guess the whole switcheroo was too ahead of its time for some people. It does feel a bit randomly shoehorned into the song to be honest but I'll always welcome (an attempt of) experimentalism.

    Some bird tweeted me that this was one of the early fan favorites among OG Ujungs. Well, they didn't have much to choose from so it makes sense.

    One of the funny things about early WJSN tracks is that the vocal line really held back. I wouldn't be able to tell who's singing what except for my husky queen Seola. Thankfully the girls were allowed to showcase more of their ranges as time progressed.

    @Charles Vingt-†rois (9) : Works much better than Catch Me

    @Attis (4) : asdfsldjfk this sounds like a bad SNL parody, extra point for the NERVE

    This elimination... Ladies, I am boiling. My blood is simmering through my veins and I have some things to say, ok?

    See, I don't mind balladphobia on Popjustice dot co dot uk. I've gotten used to it, so I'm always expecting to see BEAUTIFUL songs eliminated before they should. This time though, you messed up! Star, which is the third track on WJSN's 'WJ STAY?' EP, is gorgeous and it deserved much better than #63. I'm mad at you all but also at me for not giving a slightly higher score.

    Written by Lee Ha-jin, e.one's Choi Hyeon-jun, Kim Seung-soo and rapstress Exy, Star has all the elements of a classic K-Pop ballad, but what I really like about it is girls' delivery. With the exception of some wonderful high notes (I'm tone-deaf so maybe ask @Vixen if they really are wonderful), it's full of restreint and emotions, making it one of their best ballads.

    Lyrically, Star (whose Korean title translates to 100 Million Stars) is a love letter to the power of friendship, comparing it to the stars and to the belief that together, we can go anywhere. I mean... Don't tell me that's not sweet! You hoes really need a hug.

    @Wills (8.5) : I know I’m becoming a caricature of myself, but it must be said: no one knows their way around a ballad like Sweetune (junglefish: bb I'm so sorry but it's another Kim Seung-soo, not Sweetune's :/)

    @Charles Vingt-†rois (4) : I like Soobin but this kind of song makes me hate her.
