Gu9udan Act 2. Narcissus Album Overview by One Stop K-Pop
Gu9udan is a relatively new K-Pop girl group under Jellyfish Entertainment that made their debut on June 28, 2018 with the mini album Act. 1 The Little Mermaid, featuring the title track “Wonderland”. The group consists of 9 members.
On February 28, 2017, Gu9udan made their first comeback since their debut with their second mini-album Act. 2 Narcissus, featuring the title track “A Girl Like Me”.
The album starts off with what feels like a 90’s song with “Rainbow”, with a fun, summery beat and cute vibe. The song is really a big pick-me-up. The title track for this album, “A Girl Like Me”, definitely deserves recognition. With a fun beat, the girls are able to all feature their skills, since a lot of them have their own piece. One thing that really stands out about this track is the sheer power that some of their voice have, which is something that’s usually downplayed in large groups.
The third track, “Hate You”, starts off as a really adorable song. It features short, but effective, raps, and a heavy focus on the vocals. “거리” is a ballad pop mix that just has such a sweet feel, it’s hard to overlook. The voices mix really well together, which is expected of this group. The final track, “소원 들어주기”, is a ballad and is probably the most beautiful track on the album.
This album was a great comeback album from this group. It has such a variety of different styles in such a short track, that there’s no doubt this group has a great skill set and can perform almost anything!
