I can’t say I like this group… I usually have very bad first impressions (and overall less respect) for new groups that heavily rely on already established and popular groups to make themselves popular. (Example, Zhang Liyin and how she always depended on Hankyung, Shiwon, and Lee Yeonhee, and Junsu; it made me really lose respect for her, even though she has amazing talent… I just can’t like her that much) Same with this band… they seem to be standing on Big Bang’s shoulders to get up there with the other popular idol groups. Yes I know they’re in the same company, GDragon manages (i think) 2NE1, blah blah blah. But look at SNSD… they were known pre-debut as the girl Super Junior and yet they debuted with Into the New World without any help from Super Junior or other SM bands. It was only until Kissing You when SNSD were already getting popular that Donghae was featured in the MV. And even then he was a minor part of the MV. While in this MV of Lollipop (and I don’t even like the song…), if I hadn’t known that this was 2NE1’s debut, I would’ve thought that they were just featuring some girls in a BIG BANG MV. Big Bang is more in the forefront of this MV.
So … all that put aside, I simply don’t like this group. I don’t like the song, I don’t like their concept (especially the hair), I don’t like the dance… I don’t like them lol. I was expecting more but… oh well~~
