Well Pledis released teaser photos early today with Jung Ah and Nana: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=480708568674507&set=a.286216068123759.69063.280693908675975&type=1&theater

And they said "Please wait one more day" so maybe the video would come out tomorrow and the physical copies will be available on Thursday? This was how AS did it in the past, online distribution on Wednesdays and physical distribution on Thursdays.

She's not the best singer in the group. She's not the most charismatic or best dancer. But she can play a lot of instruments
Her path is clear. She needs to be writing/composing music for the group. I know Raina and JungAh have written songs so they could let her do that.

I read that E-Young produced a song on the new mini-album, but that might just be a rumour based on fannish wishful thinking. Anyway, I suppose that we'll know soon enough whether it's true.

I am completely in love with this. They really proved that pole dance could be an art. I did not expect to love the song as much as I do (maybe thats cause I am so obsessed with them lol), I really love the chorus and the shoulder movement part in the choreography during the "na na na" part.

Moh: you call it a snoozefest but dont you love Lee Hi? The epitome of snoozefest? LOL!

I just finished listening to the new Sistar album and this sounds like a Sistar album track to me. I might grow to love the song but right now it's a little bland.
I love the pole dancing and they way it works into the song. E-young and Kaeun got some spotlight. All the girls looked great. Nana as always was amazing.

Gotta listen to the album to see which parts were Lizzy's.
