Deja Vu: Fans Claim To See 'One More Time' Dance Steps Earlier
TWICE released the full music video of "One More Time" one week before i.e. on 6th October. The video was earlier scheduled to release on October 18. But the girl group and JYP Entertainment decided to surprise the fans after the song was leaked online.
The full MV is a treat to eyes, it is colorful as a candy and shows girl participating in sports like tennis, boxing, and wrestling. In a fun tennis match scene, Nayeon towers over Jihyo with her cartoonish jumping that some fans are comparing to sports animes like "Prince of Tennis". Meanwhile, Chaeyoung and Dahyun's boxing ring face-off brings some absurdity with exaggerated punches that culminates with the girls dancing behind Jeongyeon the referee.
The MV also features girls playing band instrument like pop stars. Rumors are there that it is a hint dropped by TWICE for their upcoming album in Korea. No doubt, the fans were really waiting for this album and that is the reason it got more than 5 million hits in just 24 hours, as reported here.
Even Billboard dedicated an article to this new release of TWICE. It writes, "The song does complete justice to the current trend going on in K-pop industry. It sounds like '90s electronica vibes have deviated from the EDM with a combination of the blaring synths and loud bass."
Viewers all around the globe are loving the cheerful music but they don't look so happy about the choreography. Fans both from Korea and Japan are claiming that a few dance steps resemble that of Black Pink's "As If It's Your Last".
The video comparing the dance steps from both the albums is going viral on the internet. One of the users tweeted a side-by-side picture and wrote, "I feel that the "One More Time" choreography of TWICE is similar to the choreography of black pink (lol) (picture quality is bad)".
