*Only posting Minho & SHINee part.*
– As they say, the proof is in the pudding, and even if the pudding is a vacant slow song like this one, all five ladies managed to sing it well; down to Amber, who usually doesn’t get more than a word in of rap, let alone any singing, but here she’s clearly testing the waters out just like Minho of SHINee circa “Lucifer” 2010 (Beautiful Goodbye).
– The final song on this album is “Lollipop,” which is a Korean remake of f(x)’s previous endeavor with MIC (Chinese group). For this re-issue, f(x) have employed the help of label mates SHINee, the group that these ladies are supposedly modeled after.
This collaboration sounds rather promising, but as the song unfolded, so did my hopes for an epic duet.
The vocal treatment on everyone involved in this song is cringe-worthy. They say less is more, and in this case, f(x)’s producers could have taken note from a certain other Lollipop song-on-song progression, because this version is hectic and unbearably one-dimensional. The mix seems off too, as I’ve noticed on other songs on this album, because several members from both idol groups get buried and lost among everything going on (Lollipop).

KBS will launch a new entertainment program in which idol singers will have singing battles
KBS Entertainment Department Chief said on April 29, “We are preparing an idol singing contest program to be launched at the end of next month as part of the Spring program change.”
Kwon Jaeyoung PD explained, “It is an idol version of “Immortal Masterpiece,” a corner of Happy Sunday, but it’s not a survival game that decides whom to drop.”
He continued, “We will focus on how the idol singers reinterpret the masterpiece in their own styles rather than on simply showing their singing ability.”
6 idol singers, including Sistar’s Hyorin, SHINee’s Jonghyun, 2AM’s Changmin, and BEAST’s Yoseop, are said to appear as contestants in the program.
