LOONA/Chuu ‘Heart Attack’ Reaction/Review
Hi guys, this is Umu from React to the K and I am back home on winter break And it just so happened that my family lost their camera So I am without a camera and using my father’s iPhone 7 to film my reaction Yeah, I just I couldn’t wait for better quality. I just had to react to…Chuu’s! Debut! I am so so so so so so so so so crazy excited I’ve watched the teaser at least 20 times, just so Excited to how fun this music video and song is going to be- I like- you have no frickin idea, like- I haven’t- I haven’t been this excited for a comeback in a really long time Let’s go And also I love her color. I love love love love love that peach color hello. I’m already biased. [Shook by the intro] [Even more shook] (umu, are you okay….?) That was a….. Oh my god, okay. I’m gonna do a second listen and actually talk right now. I’m just kind of in shock I Feel like right now they’re using some tropes, but they’re using like a trope per measure ??? So it’s keeping it exciting even though I’ve heard some of these used before….. or used often in pop music Like the descending bass line used right here or in the vocals. But really really crunchy vocal cords Really really crunchy chords in the vocals This is so cute how she’s just like the biggest fangirl of Yves… (Umu she has a crush on her lol) Damn! This is so fun! And I’m loving loving these crunchy harmonies (chuu has such a great voice i’m so proud of her & loona) Did that modulate? I just… I need to really pay attention more… Yeah, I love the chromaticism. They’re using a lot of that in this one, but mainly in the instrumentals Man, I can’t describe this a song, it’s just a bunch of a lot of things Ohhhh~ and then we– here we have the beginning of the teaser, it’s a nice bridge Chuu’s gonna take a bite and it’s.. gonna.. THAT was a modulation I was expecting something to happen like in Choerry’s music video So this is turning out way more melodic than I thought it was going to be I love her voice! (me too umu) I feel like all the other members have either much more airy or nasal or…. You know…. Not quite as in-your-face vocals, but hers are- whoo- loud, baby, loud or it could be just mixing Oh! Haseul! Hello! And who’s singing in the background? (It’s the original version of The Carol playing faintly) Wow, well, that was a rollercoaster… But in the end, this song didn’t turn out as quirky as I thought it was going to be Which was, I mean, it had plenty of fun noises, but… It kinda just went with the pop-y side of quirk. If that makes any sense? I don’t know, it could have been quirkier Oh yeah, so. [struggling] Mmm, it was just octaves, but it’s from something, another song has.. I think the exact same notes Oh, my god. That’s gonna kill me for the rest of night I don’t know how to feel about the percussion samples used. As in, like, I both love them and it’s kind of painful.. maybe it’s because I have my music turned up really loud but. The bass drum is super super quiet and muffled and the….. Snaps? Are super super super high pitch and like really close to my eardrums, so I just wished that was levelled out a lot more But it does add to the hype and to the style that this song is going for so. mixed feelings! And I love like the video game *ba dee ba dee* and then I love the- just- layers of this song It starts off very….thinly layered….and then….more vocal harmonies…. And here’s the tonic tonic tonic tonic tonic tonic tonic in the piano Chromatically descending synth! This happens a LOT before choruses, I find now… So this song switches between like, no progression whatsoever, to either [thinking] Oh, there’s kind of a progression right now….. Oh it’s the.. I think it’s the I, III, II, V that plays during the bridge in the chimes My favourite part about this song is Chuu… her voice, her rapping, she adds all the attitude, she adds all the flair, all the fun. I- There’s really not much going on in the instrumentals at all, no crazy rhythms, [missed the last part] Constant eighth notes, or just one two three four, one two three four… So THE most typical pop beat you can have But, you know, taking out the instrumentals, leaving it just for the vocals Seen that before, but you know what that’s what I usually like about songs And I really really like the vocal… the background vocals in that part, the ahh’s And then you add the.. I’m not sure what the chords are, but… the scales degrees to the main melody of the chimes in the background is I, III, II, V… And then modulation! I was looking through like a bunch of comments and stuff and I saw that it seems like the majority of Loona fans like Eclipse And then I’ve seen a lot of comments people saying that they like this a lot. Tell me what you think I’m curious I was… Honestly, a little bit let down just because you know I’m seeking the craziest stuff, and, in my mind.. the craziest stuff is, uh, (Yeojin’s) Kiss Later, and Heejin’s Vivid, and Choerry’s (Love) Cherry Motion, and… Haseul’s…. Oh god, what was her song called (It’s called Let Me In), but yeah, Haseul’s song, and of course… Loona 1/3’s songs (Ex: Sonatine), and I’m.. that’s what I’m looking for, that’s what- those songs are why I stan Loona Also aside from the freaking amazing concepts that this group?? Has?? But it seems like right now Loona, the Loona members are getting more and more and more pop-y, and which means that they will become more popular because, you know, the… Point.. of pop music is to be catchy and pop-y But, on this channel, we look for a little bit more.. if that makes sense.. and so Um, with Yves’ song, I was a little bit let down and this one I was a little bit let down Um, I can’t wait to learn about the next two members, right? Because there’s 12 Loona members, and yeah, okay Thanks for watching my reaction, and I will see you guys later. Bye!
