Frist Center of Produce 101 - XOXO Always the Best SOMI
Somi's new album title song XOXO is released!
This album includes a total of 8 songs including Dumb Dumb.
XOXO is the main release,
which continues the American sweetheart theme of Dumb Dumb.
XOXO's MV portrays the contrast between a vengeful darling and a cheater.
It reminds people of many Hollywood chick flicks with love stories in a young school campus setting.
There is also the imitation of Harley Quinn from the Suicide Squad with heavy-weight weapons (i.e. a sledgehammer here and a baseball bat there).
The crazy, cool and lovable image of the Somi should be an instant classic to her followers and maybe even to everyone who will watch the video.
Substituting the cheating boyfriend as a weak rabbit, torturing him in public,
trashing his house, teaching him a "lesson" with her girl gangs,
All elements of nostalgic high school comedies.
It has got to restore much of our sweet memories.
Oh, not to mention that the West Highland White Terrier in the MV,
Somi with the cute dog! The most adorable thing ever!
This gorgeous look of Somi showcases a generation of young, confident (sometimes rebellious) ladies, which is very fitting to the current world.
All the outfits accentuate her troublesome beauty with a hint of cuteness
- all the while in chaotic, messy revenge against the cheating bf.
As always, the stage for XOXO and dance challenge is in trend!
It is colorful, it is feminine and it is powerful.
With the ending marks "to be continued",
you know what we're gonna get ahead of us...
another creative MV from Somi and team for the sequel!
