Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week, our second for September 2015. Although there were a number of interesting new releases recently, we’ve chosen the new release from Girl Group Red Velvet (레드벨벳). The song is titled “Dumb Dumb“ and it was released this past Tuesday September 8th. In that time it has been viewed over 4.4 million times on the SMTOWN YouTube Channel. Here are our reasons for choosing “Dumb Dumb” for our KPOP song of the week:
- Firstly the song is catchy and has a great tempo. There is also a solid mix of vocals as well as rapping (as you’d expect from a SM produced song).
- Secondly the video has a high production value and combines great dance routines as well as a slight storyline.
- Finally Red Velvet started the year with the big release Ice Cream Cake and this follow up should help them to continue growing their large fanbase.
- On the negative side; It’s similar to their previous releases and therefore it lacks a little originally.
