single review: TWICE “The Feels”

Did anyone see this coming?

TWICE makes their return following the summery title song of “Alcohol-Free” with their very first fully English-single “The Feels“, marking this moment in time to be TWICE’s foray into the Western market.

With the current world enthralled by Korean acts and media such as BTS, BLACKPINK, Squid Game, and Parasite, it makes sense for JYP Entertainment’s hugely popular 9-member girl group to finally step in those waters, even if they’re already household names in the Western hemisphere.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

So ‘colour’ me surprised to find out that he not only had his own solo material out with an aesthetic that’s to yellow-dye for, he had collaborated with Suga/Agust D of BTS! And suddenly, I became even more interested, and it just snowballed into me outright buying the album.

Now, I have to ponder. Does the album have the right ‘Color Vision’ to appeal to listeners, or is this album just a dull gray from start to finish? Was my purchase worth it in this really uncertain time?! You’ll have to find out below!
