Oh My Girl has been undeniably rising to the top with their comebacks. Their last comeback, The Fifth Season (SSFWL), was hugely successful for the group. It won the group a number of weekly music shows and got the group a lot of fanfare. Now, the girl group has joined the Summer comeback rush with a special summer album, Fall In Love. Bungee is the lead track off this album and the focus of this review.
Oh My Girl started off with the cutesy concept and sound when their career kicked off back in 2015. And while the group has been focusing on a more refined and mature sound, Bungee brings back the cutesy charms the group once had. It is a Summer track, so there is a very fun, upbeat atmosphere and the cutesy charm does come through nicely. But there were parts that felt very childish and I thought the group would have stayed clear of this. Namely, the 1,2,3 part of the track within the chorus. It just doesn’t fit with the rest of the song in my opinion. The vocals were nice. But I think Mimi is the most profound member of this track. Her rapping was very dynamic and I wished the song followed that route more (i.e. there was an air of typicalness surrounding the song). With that last point in mind, I wanted the song has a little more impact. I felt the track was 80% there. It just needed an extra 20% to have it up to par as their previous few title tracks.
With Summer, upbeat and fun being words to describe this track (which in hindsight is very typical), the music video fits all these descriptive criteria. Just it feels very typical and there isn’t much to comment on, except for the cuteness that Oh My Girl brings to the table. I just don’t ping this video as memorable, mainly because of that typical nature that the video features. For a song titled Bungee, I am glad they incorporated a little jump scene from a tall height. Just they do it without any safety equipment and the way that wraps up would not be that ideal. I also really like the colours they went within the music video.
Like the rest of the comeback, the dance was fun and energetic. At the same time, it was quite cute. Nothing too impressive from what I saw in the music video that really jumped out at me. Though, I have to wait for the full performance. On a side note, I really liked their bright smiles.
