When SM first formed the Girls' Generation-TTS subunit, it was to show the group as actual singers, not just performers. Now, two years after the trio first debuted with the bubblegum-y "Twinkle," the goal appears to have changed -- for the first time ever, Girls' Generation are showing off their sensual side.
Between the "Mr.Mr." music video delay and the early album leak, Girls' Generation's comeback has been a total mess so far, but it hasn't bothered me until now. Why would it? As I pointed out in my "Mr.Mr." single review, the song is totally spectacular and continues Girls' Generation's unspoiled seven-year streak of perfect pop hits. And while the behind-the-scenes issues seem to have severely hurt the Divine Nine as far as promo and sales go, it was a non-factor to me as long as the product was good, which it was. But now the "Mr.Mr." MV is out, and now I am a little bothered.
