SM Entertainment’s female supergroup GOT The Beat returned with the title track “Stamp On It” on January 16.
Many fans were delighted with their return, but some were disappointed with the title, which they found a little “outdated”, others were also disappointed with the fact that BoA did not seem to give 100% during the dance break.
como centro de grupo, directamente ya estás destacando al estar en el centro y tener pasos diferentes… pero también tienes que igualar un poco la energía… no soy experto ni profesional, es mi punto de vista. #got #gotthebeat #girlsontop #karina #winter #BoA #taeyeon #wendy #seulgi #Hyolyn #sm
Despite the fact that there were so many amazing talents in one group, the fans didn’t seem to be particularly present, and the number of views of the clip for their new track barely exceeded 5 million views, which is not enough for a group of this size. .
The members themselves seem to be aware of the low number of views they have, as after the band’s performance on M Countdown, BoA said:
“Our music video is not getting as many views as expected. Please watch this! Happy New Year. And take care of yourself. Thanks! »
Although his words sound quite innocent, they caused a mixed reaction among fans in various online communities. Some of the most liked comments include:
- “GOT was created for her (BoA), but that made her even more boring for me. And then the views are normal for the Kpop group without ads.
- “Boa… why say that?” It makes me sick”
- “We can respect BoA and what she brought to K-pop, but also criticize her when she’s wrong. This band is just a weird tribute to her, and once everything was fine, but now we’re tired.”
- “It doesn’t bother me, unless it turns into guilt.
- Idols are allowed to express their thoughts about the return and album sales. But at the same time, some have to be realistic about their fandom, because fandom can’t do much.
- “A fan who tweeted about BoA said it was weird, mainly because the audience was full of SNSD/RV/Aespa fans, so it was basically sunbae trying to blame other artists’ fandoms for spreading their collaborations.”
Others, however, don’t think she meant any harm and have come to her defense, saying she just honestly shared her feelings with fans.
