The beginning

HYBE trained big-name K-pop bands, such as BTS & TXT, and EnHYPEN. They wanted to make the new generation five-member girl group, so Hybe signed on to the independent label ADOR. Ador’s new girl group NewJeans released its first single, “Attention,” on June 21st. This rock and pop music mix seems to have been from the 1990s or early 2000s. The music videos are also nostalgically nostalgic. This video showed a small Indie Concert with the girls dancing together before putting together outfits. It’s simpler than other K-pop videos that sometimes contain extravagant props and color explosions.

Who are the members of NewJeans?

NewJeans revealed their names days after its debut and released several video songs about their 2nd single, “Hype Boy.”  NewJeans members are Minji, Hanni, Danielle, Haerin, and Hyein.

NewJeans Songs

Hype boy

newjeans hype boy all members

Hype boy is the second title song of their debut album, but it is a song that has raised expectations as much as the title song.

If ‘Attention’ is a type of song you will love, ‘Hype Boy’ has a popular appeal that instantly sticks.

It is a song that stands out because of members who are good at technique and tone.


newjeans attention

‘Attention’ captures the meaning of an honest confession and focuses the public’s attention towards a new existence called ‘NewJeans’‘.

In addition to the sensual and rhythmic groove, the part where you say, ‘You Got me looking for attention,’ which creates a dreamy atmosphere, is quite addictive.

It’s a song that keeps thinking about you and humming with its straightforward lyrics and bouncing synth sound.

The minimal hip-hop sound can be dull, but the emphasis on the synth sound and the perfect control of the vocals and chants create a slight addiction.


newjeans hurt mv

‘Hurt’ has a simple vocal with a groovy drum beat. It’s an easy-to-listen R&B song with a cappella feel.

If you listen to this song without knowing that it is a NewJeans song, it is light enough to think of it as the title song of any indie singer.


newjeans ditto music

I listened to the song over and over again, and I discovered a lot of exciting things.

Ditto remains on my Spotify app playlist as the song I’ve listened to the most lately.

This song consists of only one pad, drumline, and bass line.

It’s easy to question the song’s identity when you first hear it.


newjeans omg

Overall, it is a song that solidifies the musical identity of “NewJeans” with a unique and easy melody.

There is no freshness of “Attention” or the catchy chorus of “Hype boy,” but it has a lot of trendy colors and doesn’t miss the fun of listening.

Music Videos


A woman appears in a room where the traces of time are in the music video.

This girl’s name is Ban Hee-soo – in Korean, and it sounds similar to the name of the NewJeans fan club, Bunnies. – was played by actor Park Ji-hoo.

She takes a videotape from the corner of her room and plays it.

You can check the intensive music video interpretation down below.


If Ditto music video was a story from Bunnies’ point of view, OMG music video is a story from NewJeans’ point of view.

In the music video, the members of NewJenes are in a psychiatric ward, each with paranoia.

I love KPOP and KDRAMA. I really into NewJeans these days.
