I’m super excited to hear this mini album. I have already expressed in my “We Go Up” first look how I’m late to the DREAM party but the last two title tracks they’ve released have really impressed me. I don’t know what changed my opinion, maybe it’s their aging or the fact they can explore genres that are more my type of thing. Either way, I’m here now and love this particular direction for them.
For those of you who have seen my NCT related reactions on YouTube you’ll know NCT as a collective mess me up in a lot of ways. Though I am obsessed with 127 and U, I’m less so with DREAM. Unfortunately, their first song “Chewing Gum” annoyed me more than anything so I am late to the DREAM party. I am upset about it but these things can happen.
I’ve said it a lot – “Black On Black” will be the death of me. And it almost was. To be honest I was expecting a little more single shots and a little bit more artistic camera shots but I expected nothing less than what they gave us. SM artists doing what they do best – DANCE.

There was a part of me which wasn’t overly excited for this MV for two reasons: 1. It’s not my favourite song off Empathy and 2. “Black On Black” MV was surely to follow (which it has, but I still haven’t watched yet because I don’t have time right now). In saying that, I was interested to see what this MV would look like, the teasers made it look super bright and artistic and I’d be able to see my boy Taeyong again 🙂

I was extremely nervous about this song. From the teasers, it looked like it was going to be all soft etc. and coming from “Boss”, “Baby Don’t Stop” and “Go”, I was feeling a little underwhelmed by a soft concept.
…But I changed my mind!
Check out my reaction to the “Touch” MV and keep watching for my first listen to NCT 2018: Empathy.
K-Pop has a lot to be proud of so far in 2018 – and it’s only been three months!! A lot of that credit really does need to go to SM Entertainment and the wonders that are NCT and all their units. I do have one more NCT reaction to do (“Touch”) so I will be posting that over the next week, but mark my words – NCT DIDN’T COME TO PLAY WITH ANYONE!!!
“Boss” was enough of a shit show for me but I don’t think I was expecting the intensity of this song, the choreography or the two MEN who were showcasing all they have to offer. I’m a hard, hard Taeyong bias but I also have a soft spot for Ten as well, so this song was bound to melt me into a puddle. I only wish the video didn’t play up while I was watching it but oh well! The melt down I experienced is still very much evident!
