SHINee have returned to the K-pop scene with “Dream Girl” (a song we were really excited to hear). The new tune is surprising, but not at all for the reasons we were expecting. After the forward-thinking “Sherlock (Clue + Note),” and the experimental “I Got a Boy” from SHINee’s labelmates, Girls’ Generation, “Dream Girl” is a surprisingly safe, straightforward slice of bubblegum pop. In fact, it’s virtually the same song as the group’s 2009 chart-topper, “Juliette.” Whether you think that’s a good thing or not depends on whether you’ve been a fan of the more left-field direction that SM Entertainment has taken over the past 12 months, or if you’ve been hankering for them to return to the more typical-sounding K-pop beats of the past.
Iffy song aside, SHINee have really delivered on the music video front (as they always do). The clip is filled with fly fashion, razor shape dance moves, colorful special effects, and an almost unhealthy amount of floral prints.
