f(x) – Nu Abo

Release date: May 6, 2010
Label: SM Entertainment


  1. NU 예삐오 (NU ABO) [MV]
  2. Mr. Boogie
  3. 아이스크림 (Ice Cream)
  4. ME+U
  5. Surprise Party
  6. Sorry (Dear. Daddy)

The very cooky and extremely dressed SM quintet release their first mini-album since their debut. And with it they serve you very sweet and very happy Kpop, which makes me cringe a bit because the title track is very powerful and just a tad different without being weird.

The rest of the songs, however, sound very much like rejected SNSD songs. You have nine amazing voices, nine very sexy women and you make them sing retarded songs about rainbows and pink dreams. Sure, this suits f(x) a bit more, seeing as they are young girls, but considering the fact that SM are marketing them as strong women, cooler, very cooky with the extreme clothes and hair, well the music kind of doesn’t suit the image.

Thankfully, the last track of this song, Sorry (Dear Daddy), shows their vocal talent, and that makes me forgive the other four tracks that raped my ears with sugar.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

    I think this is the first time we agree on something Korean xD – No, I think we have similar girl group taste. Does NU ABO have anything to do with the A B O blood thing? You know like that silly Koi no ABO song hahaha.
