On a serious note… Miss A has recently revealed their newest single Touch. The JYP girl group reached an all-kill within hours of its release on Korean billboards and has recorded over 1.6 million Youtube views for their music video, Touch. The main track describes a situation where one hasn’t completely gotten over the pain and tears of breaking up.
On a lighter note… One of the main outfits looked like last season’s bandage dress cut in the middle and dyed white. I believe the aim was to show that the girls were hurt and all bandaged up, but they could’ve been wearing toilet paper.
The Look…Wardrobe-wise, the girls have three main sets of outfits consisting of the mummy costume; white top and shorts combination; and black lace dresses. My vote definitely goes to the black lace attire. It goes well with the video’s dark reddish hue and completes the sexy gothic feel. Figure hugging, back-revealing, short and the skin colored base screams SUGGESTIVE but the diamonties and high collars help maintain a highly sophisticated look. However, the white top and shorts combination… I swear I saw Min’s top on a discount rack a year ago. And it doesn’t help that everyone’s hair is just lying limply there!
Makeup involves red lipstick, minimal smoky eye, pale skin and sliver glitter under the eye (representing tears). It actually looks quite clean and sharp but I have this nagging feeling that the makeup artist just meshed all the recent trends together. Pin up girl look, glamorous or the smoky eye look?
To emphasize the word Touch, there is a focus on the members’ hands. And the nails do not disappoint!
Who’s Losing… Miss A is actually one of those rare groups where I actually don’t have anything against anyone. That, however, doesn’t stop me saying that Jia has won this gracious spot this time. Her hair has been orange, light pink, fluro, blond, jet black and purple within the last two years. Lets hope she doesn’t go bald before promotions end for Touch!
The Verdict… Another catchy song written, produced and arranged by JY Park! Bit conservative but at least it’s better than gas masks (Breathe). Vocals could’ve been stronger and less breathy during the chorus. But overall lovely mini album to listen to while going for a walk. Just love the beat!
