Red Velvet Updates and Plans in 2020
Red Velvet Updates on Members Activities
Since there is Coronavirus pandemic, Red Velvet members don’t have the opportunity to meet their fans, Reveluvs, directly. Moreover, Red Velvet members still have ways to keep in touch with them. One of them is by greeting the fans virtually.
Red Velvet Yeri has been regularly greeting the fans through her YouTube channel, the Dumdum Studio channel. She said, “I’ve been greeting fans through my YouTube vlog channel’s ‘Yeri’s Room.’ I think I’ve gained many experiences and meeting many people in the ‘Yeri’s Room.’ I have also become a muse of the cosmetics brand. Above all, I’m enjoying my life while working out and doing sports.”
Joy’s Handsome Tigers and Salty Tour
Meanwhile, Red Velvet Joy Joy said, “I have participated in many fashion photoshoots. I sang the OST for dramas in this half-year, and the response was better than I expected. I also featured in Crush’s song, and often attend in variety shows this year. Like, “Handsome Tigers’ and ‘Salty Tour.”
Wendy Update Condition
During the interviews, the members Red Velvet talk about Red Velvet Wendy update condition as well. She said, “Wendy is spending the most day by day. She’s working hard on rehabilitation, and she’s always going to the practice room to practice singing. She always keeps in touch with us. And told me to cheer up.”
The Red Velvet Wendy update condition gives Reveluvs a light of hope that Red Velvet will make a comeback this year.
Red Velvet Comeback 2020
Though Red Velvet is not actively producing songs and videos recently, their Psycho MV has surpassed 100,000 views on YouTube.
At the end of the interview, the Red Velvet members shared their plans for the rest of 2020. Red Velvet Irene said, “First, Red Velvet subunit group will be promoting ‘Naughty,’ Then, we also hope to make a comeback as a group. We’ll keep doing both group and personal activities, so please stay tuned.”
Red Velvet Irene & Seulgi’s New Single
Irene and Seulgi’s Mini Album
As for Red Velvet subunit, Irene and Seulgi, they just released their unit debut track “Monster” and received a good response. Red Velvet Joy and Yeri support Red Velvet subunit at SBS Inkigayo.
After releasing a sub-unit track ‘Monster’ on July 6th, Red Velvet Sub-Unit Irene & Seulgi has released the second track “놀이 (Naughty) – Episode 1” MV on July 20th. It also followed by an artsy choreography video entitled Red Velve Irene & Seulgi Episode 2 “IRENE.”
Although there was an unpleasant delay on the debut track Monster MV, the second track has amazed many people globally from the first day, and #LetsGetNaughty hashtag was trending on Twitter.
Both videos are dominated by monochrome. It also has contrast colors and excellent lighting technique. With stunning dance choreography, it looks like more performance show video that you can’t take your eyes off it.
Song Review and Fantastic Choreography
The second song from Red Velvet Irene & Seulgi’s Monster mini-album, Naughty, has a pleasant rhythmic house deep sound combined with a catchy hook and cool bass line. Both of their voices sounded so relaxed yet sassy and sexy while grooving gracefully with complicated and finger movements in Naughty MV.
The song has funny lyrics that describe the feeling of a relationship that develops with the game of hiding and seek. The Naughty MV has proven excellent dance skills from the duo Red Velvet Irene and Seulgi. The duo performed a different dance from the typical Kpop dance choreography.
tutting is a new style of dance they’ve never learned before but look at how they ATE this. two of the best performers this generation and that’s on period#LetsGetNaughty @RVsmtown pic.twitter.com/fFeX1ZIHYp— t & (@joyisthetics) July 20, 2020
Not just mirroring each other movements, but the hands/finger choreography is jaw-dropping. The dance in Naughty MV is full of hand/finger movements known as Tutting. It’s a street dance style known for its complex finger angular movements, like ancient Egyptian art, and refers to King Tut.
Moreover, on Episode 2, Irene MV, Seulgi resembles Irene. Again, both were dancing energetically and create harmony. You might stop a few seconds (or many times) to see the difference between Seulgi and Irene.
Let’s watch Red Velvet Subunit’s videos once again. Dare to try the dance?
