[MV] Secret shares their “Starlight Moonlight” lovePosted: June 2, 2011
After the success of “Magic,” “Madonna,” and “Shy Boy,” it is no surprise that Secret‘s next move has already captured the eyes, ears, and hearts of the Korean pop music landscape. “Starlight Moonlight,” Secret’s second single, is expected to rock the charts and surpass idol mainstays like 2NE1 and BEAST. The release of a teaser featuring the track “Oh! Honey“ created a lot of buzz and anticipation for Secret’s new retro concept.
“Starlight Moonlight” capitalizes on the earlier retro cute success of “Shy Boy,” but brings you back to an even earlier and even simpler time (possibly the 50s). Hanging out in a terminal is good wholesome fun, and being in nature is actually a swell time. The song and imagery in the MV is light, charming and pleasant. While it is overly cutesy, it is quite infectious and not TOO annoying.
It is good to see that although Zinger is Secret’s rapper, she is able to sing in the song. TS Entertainment didn’t force an unnecessary rap section into “Starlight Moonlight” and only had a single rap verse that actually works with the momentum of the song.
Do you find Secret’s latest foray in retro chic fun or overdone?
