sonamoo just go
I think I wrote off SONAMOO a.k.a. Pine Tree too quickly when they debuted with “Deja Vu,” but I just felt like it was too early to bring back mid-2000s urban-pop, plus they just kind of seemed like a shit rip-off of the perfect B.A.P.

Nobody else liked them either because “Deja Vu” didn’t even make the top 100, which literally puts them on the level of flops like 4TEN and MINX.

I’ve come around on the group a bit since then and have come to enjoy their mini-album, so I was excited when I heard that they were going to start promoting one of the b-sides on music programs.

Unfortunately, it’s not the disco smash “국민 여동생; People’s Little Sister.”

They opted for “Just Go” instead, which is like a funkier, more interesting version of an A Pink filler track. But SONAMOO are supposed to be one of the few groups that aren’t doing the trending cute concept this year, so seeing them bop around on stage like casual college freshman while doing aegyo is a bit desperate.

I get that they’re going to go cute at some point like labelmates SECRET and B.A.P. did, but isn’t it a tad too soon?

Anyway, it’s still a good song, and I’m kind of starting to stan for these flops now (I’m a TS junkie, so I knew this day would come).

Check out Pine Tree’s “Just Go” below.

  • They went on after 1Punch… that must have been hard.

  • I like that they are aiming for that hot college girl in your dorm, rather than the traditional school girl concept tho. Yet, again, it’s the song that bores me.

    No idea they flopped that hard >.< Praying they get better music next time, b/c they're a good looking group.

    I wasn’t expecting for TS to start them flip-flopping through concepts so early :o but maybe it’s because their other groups didn’t flop so hard right away?

  • KingBeaArthur

    SMH this just proves TS messed up by cloning B.A.P and that the concept was fluff. I prefer the B.A.P rip-off to this.

  • Egbutts Egbust

    I get the feeling that 3 of the members are just copy/pasted other members with different colors of hair. I’ve never had an experience like this, not even with quadruplet-beauties RV.

  • still not over high.d

  • JujuTruth

    TS needs to be careful with the constant changing concepts, as if they haven’t learned their lesson when Secret did it and divided their audience and sending them to flopdom.

  • oneclearnight

    They should promote Love Call… that song is my jam.

  • Sunny

    agreed, the change in image is too fast but I guess it wouldn’t confuse too many people since they’re still nugus / no one knows them.

    btw this is my favorite kind of cheezey bubblegum kpop!! *o*

  • fuck it! i was ready to trash it cos i actully didn’t like “deja vu”, but this is waaaaaay better! better song, better dance, better everything!

    they’re gorgeous and somehow made me think of she’z (have they disbanded?)

    on a side note: jacques peterson! WHERE IS RAINBOW ON FRIGGIN RKD?! :'( i’m dying to see your opinion lol

  • TheFishHook

    I liked Deja Vu, Love Call and People’s Little Sister, but what I really want is a longer version of the intro.

  • Nicole Naeun

    OMG I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WROTE ABOUT SONAMOO!

    I ALSO START STANNING THEM DUE TO THE INCREDIBLE “NATION’S LITTLE SISTER” AND THE CLOSEST RIP OFF OF S.E.S. THAT IS “JUST GO!”

    I guess Sonamoo isn’t that bad? Looking forward to their next comeback!
